But I also believe our schools are there to teach worldly knowledge and science. I believe in evolution, and I believe there’s a difference between science and faith. . . . And I think it’s a mistake to try to cloud the teaching of science with theories that frankly don’t hold up to scientific inquiry. (York Daily Record, March 2008; Pennsylvania newspaper).
And Who Said This?
My expectation is that when you look back on these years . . . . You will see a time in which we as a nation finally recognize relationships between two men and two women as just as real and admirable as relationships between a man and a woman. (October, 2009—CNSNews.com).
And What about This?
Today we recognize the 37th anniversary of the Supreme Court decision in which affirms every woman’s fundamental constitutional right to choose whether to have an abortion . . . . (January 22, 2010—press release)
Actually, the above statements were all made by the same person—the President of the United States, President Barack Obama.
Obviously the president does not take the book of Genesis as literal history, where Genesis 2:7 and 2:21 clearly teach that man and woman did not evolve but were made directly by God:
And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being. . . . And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall on Adam, and he slept; and He took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh in its place. Then the rib which the LORD God had taken from man He made into a woman.
And he obviously doesn’t accept that human life begins at conception as the Bible clearly teaches in Psalm 139:13:
For You formed my inward parts: You covered me in my mother’s womb. I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made . . . .
And he certainly rejects what Jesus states in Matthew 19:4–5 when He was asked about marriage:
Have you not read that He who made them at the beginning ‘made them male and female,’ and said, ‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’?
We certainly need to pray for our president, that he will build his thinking on God’s Word instead of fallible man’s word!

Best Museum Ever
Just one of the many great emails we received this week about the Creation Museum:
My middle daughter, her spouse, and children have visited the Creation Museum five times. My youngest daughter has been there with four of her six children at least five times—her oldest daughter thinks it’s the best museum ever, and her middle son (age 9), thinks it’s the best museum in the world, even better than the [nearby] Newport Aquarium. [My husband’s] brother and his wife came out to visit us and took one day to tour the museum, and were enthralled with it.
He staggered not
(Romans 4:20–22) He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God; And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform. And therefore it was imputed to him for righteousness.
Unbelief makes us stagger at God’s promises, but we gain assurance as we think of the almightiness of the Lord Jesus Christ and let that truth persuade our souls.
Thanks for stopping by and thanks for praying,
