Recently, I blogged about Appalachian Bible College (located in West Virginia) and its very specific statement of faith concerning Genesis. It is a thrill to see such colleges that stand on the inerrancy and infallibility of Scripture, and that they are prepared (despite the scoffing of the secularists) to make a stand on six literal days, young universe (no millions of years), etc.
Today, I will be in Florida speaking at another Christian college that also stands with Answers in Genesis in regards to a literal Genesis, six literal days of creation, young universe, etc.—Pensacola Christian College in Florida. See the event page for details.
In fact, within the last year or so, AiG has spoken—or has been invited to speak in the near future—in most of the main conservative creationist colleges such as: Appalachian Bible College (West Virginia), Master’s College (California), Northland University (Wisconsin), Pensacola Christian College (Florida), Clearwater Christian College (Florida), Cedarville University (Ohio), Liberty University (Virginia), Tennessee Temple University (Tennessee) , and Grace College (Indiana). I would encourage students to check out each of these Institutions.
Best Museum Ever
Something called “Google alerts” brings our attention to numerous articles, blogs, etc., concerning the AiG ministry and Creation Museum. Here is a blog post we were alerted to this past week; I thought you would be interested to read it (http://ourcornerofthekingdom.blogspot.com/2010/07/i-love.html):
I love Museums. There is something great about so much cool stuff in one place at the same time. But to be honest I have found many natural history museums to be more or an indoctrination camp than a center for learning. If there is a natural history museum that:
1) presents both sides of the creation/evolution debate
2) presents the faith aspect of the evolutionary theory honestly and openly or
3) is honest about its agenda for its presentations
I have not seen it. They tend to be so committed to the faith assumption of uniformitarianism that they are to be commended for being zealots.
The Creation Museum is different. In one exhibit they point out that the evidence is just evidence but it is interpreted differently based on the pre-assumptions of the scientist. They openly admit that creation is accepted on faith, but they do argue that the evidence supports that faith. They admit that they want people to accept Jesus as their Savior. They call it Creation Evangelism.
Go to your local Natural History Museum and look it over, but do so with a circumspect view and an awareness of the worldview of the staff. And let me make this my strongest recommendation.
Go to the Creation Museum. If it were in my power I would take everyone I know to see what I believe to be the best museum ever.
There was not one city too strong for us
(Deuteronomy 2:36) From Aroer, which is by the brink of the river of Arnon, and from the city that is by the river, even unto Gilead, there was not one city too strong for us: the LORD our God delivered all unto us:
The issue is not whether an obstacle is too strong for us alone but whether an obstacle is too strong for the Lord Jesus Christ; are we willing to trust Him?
Thanks for stopping by and thanks for praying,
