Global Warming: and the Creator’s Plan

global-warming

You have heard: But have you also heard?
The earth has warmed over the past 100 years The international temperature standards were not established until 1968
The arctic ice is melting A submarine arctic volcano has recently become very active!
Ice core data indicates that the earth has been getting warmer the past 100 years The same ice cores indicate that all life as we know it died out multiple times due to cold
Surface temperature data clearly indicates that the earth is getting warmer Upper atmosphere satellite data clearly indicates that the earth is getting colder
As Christians, proper stewardship of God’s creation is crucial. To do that – we need to be accurately informed

What Difference Does it Make?

Last month’s article was the last in a series of creation-science issues. It opened with the statement, “The next two issues will deal with the most fundamental spiritual results of this deception {evolution}.” As you have probably noticed, creation-science is a fascinating subject for me; probably significantly more fascinating for me than for most of you. However, I must point out, that regardless of my fascination for the subject, the understanding of the science alone is totally meaningless. I suppose that most of you have some subject that fascinates you. I hope so. But, I hope you also truly understand that regardless of how fascinating the subject is, no matter how important you think that subject is, “Vanity of vanities, saith the Preacher, vanity of vanities; all is vanity.” Eccl 1:2       UNLESS; it affects your walk with Christ!

When Your Faith Is Shaken

Are we tired of stories yet? Or should we get back to science? In this article, we will do both. We will have a story, a science discussion related to the story, and then another related story. Since we have had one story from the north, and one from the south, it’s time to tell one from the east, or west. In this case it makes no difference which direction. Both stories take place half way around the world in Asia. Continue reading When Your Faith Is Shaken

The Genesis Flood

Introduction:   The events of Hurricane Katrina remind me of a story that I must share with you.  Not only “could it” happen in St Louis; but few people are aware that it “almost did” happen in 1993.  The following story is true.  BUT, as you will see at the end of this story, our God is much bigger than St Louis, New Orleans, or our entire world!

image001God’s Covenant:  Have you ever seen it rain so hard that you thought you were about to personally experience the Genesis Flood all over again?   Fortunately, God made a covenant with us: Continue reading The Genesis Flood

Arctic Adventure

Do you like to tell or hear good stories? I do; especially if there is a spiritual lesson to be learned. Perhaps you can enjoy this one.

Twenty years ago, my employer had a bad habit of selling equipment into some of the strangest areas of the world. Year after year we would sell equipment headed for the Arctic in the dead of winter. That’s not so bad, except guess who got to train the operators how to use this equipment? You guessed it! Year after year I found myself training two shifts, 12 hours each. (I think it was about my third trip when I finally figured out that the two 12 hour shift scenario presented a problem.) Continue reading Arctic Adventure

Origin Theories

There are only two theories of our origin.  Let’s talk about these two theories for a moment.

One theory aligns the sequence of events as recorded in the Bible over a very short period of time.  This theory is often called “Special Creation.”  The second theory aligns the sequence of events with the so called “geologic column” over billions of years.  This theory is often called “Evolution.”  These two theories are radically different and contradictory.  They obviously cannot both be true. Continue reading Origin Theories

True Science must be consistent with God’s True Word! Otherwise, by definition, one of the two is false!

Subtitle:  Why I am excited about Creation Science!

The Title: This is just plain Boolean logic. If science and God’s Word contradict each other, then, at least one has to be false. Insisting that two opposing views can both be true is, of course, irrational.

The Subtitle: The good news is; true science and God’s Word actually agree!

Spiritual consequences:   People have written whole books on the consequences of false science; evolution. I would like to briefly mention only two. Continue reading True Science must be consistent with God’s True Word! Otherwise, by definition, one of the two is false!

The Tower of Babel

Since we are in the “story telling” mode, I thought I’d tell you another application related story. Since the previous story took place in the arctic, this one will take place in the tropics, specifically, Venezuela. Venezuela is a desert in the west and a tropical rain forest in the east. The tallest water fall in the world, Angel Falls, is in the Venezuelan province of Guyana. With a 3000′ vertical drop, it is one of the most magnificent sites in the world! PRAISE GOD!!! Venezuela is also one of the largest oil producing countries in the world. The oil comes from Lagunias, a desert town near Lake Maracaibo (which is actually a Carribean bay, not a lake.) They have pumped so much oil out of the ground that the earth has actually subsided over 30 feet. This wouldn’t ordinarily be a problem except this region was originally only about 20 feet above sea level. Now the ground level is 10 feet below sea level! Thus, the region is very similar to Holland with all it’s dikes, ditches, and pumps to keep the area dry. (Sorry, no classic Dutch windmills.) The temperatures were typically 100ºF! The humidity was just as high, and there were no shade trees! Continue reading The Tower of Babel
