CREATION COLLEGE BEGINS
Creation College 2 began last night, as between 400 and 500 people packed into the auditorium at Higher Ground Conference facility to hear a Buddy Davis concert and then a stirring presentation from Don Landis on how to understand this postmodern culture and also the influence of postmodernism on the church. So many after the presentation said to me something like “Wowcant wait for the rest of the program.” I have enclosed a few photographs of the evening. We have a packed day of presentations from various speakers today.
Incidentally, Buddy Davis has a new CD outThe 7 Cs of Historyif you are a Buddy Davis fan like my family is, then you can obtain this CD from the Answers Bookstore.
WHEN I GROW UP
While at the Columbus home educators conference, I was handed a copy of a speech done by 11-year-old Timothy Troutner. He wrote out a speech on what he wanted to do when he grew up. He also did a self-portrait. I have enclosed a copy of this self-portrait—it fits nicely with his speech and reminds me of someone I know! This speech from an 11-year-old will touch your heart as it did mine:
When I grow up I want to be an Answers in Genesis speaker, because AiG is Christ-centered, is on the Creation-evolution front lines, and is impacting peoples lives.
The company is Christ-centered. I would be surrounded by strong Christians, which would encourage my walk with God. Also, I would have the satisfaction of working for the good of a world that is rushing head-over-heels down a slippery slope towards destruction.
Secondly, it would be interesting to work on the Creation-evolution front lines, a battlefront that has become increasingly crucial in the fight over origins. Many religious leaders have backed down in the face of crushing pressure from the growing evolution movement and said Dont worry about Genesis, just believe in Jesus.
When some people hear this they think, They dont have answers. We dont have to believe Genesis. Why should I believe the rest of the Bible? AiG is giving answers to these questions and more. We as Christians need to back them up, and through Christ turn the tide of battle in favor of the personal God who wants to seek and save all that are lost and perishing.
Most importantly, AiG is impacting peoples lives. Not just giving believers answers so that they know what they believe and why they believe it, but directly touching the lost sheep of the world who are groping blindly for truth and purpose in a world ravaged by sin.
If I was an AiG speaker I could work in a Christ-centered environment, be on the creation-evolution front lines, and impact lives for the better, through Christ who strengthens me.
Thanks for praying and thanks for stopping by.
