It’s Elemental!

I recently found a grownup site for Creationists, called Creation Conversations (You grownups out there might enjoy it).   I found their page of FREE RESOURCES .  Most of it is for grownups, but there was one chapter covering energy, and I thought this page on WATER was well done.  The table of elements was one area of science that I never much liked (reminded me too much of the multiplication tables), but this book sounds like it would be interesting enough that I might enjoy studying it now!

Every area of nature shows God’s wisdom, power and care for us.  He is the God of the tiny as much as He is of the Enormous.

No, I’m not getting paid for this, but my goal is to reach enough people so that they’ll let me try out their books for free if I tell you all what I think. icon biggrin Its Elemental!  I think the available resources change every month, so the water link might not work tomorrow, but there will be something else cool instead.

But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Matthew 10:30

Answers in Genesis has been talking a lot about what it means to know that all people are children of Adam, Eve and Noah’s three sons and daughters-in-law.  As Bible believers, we have no reason to think that we are better or worse than anyone else because of our body shape, size, color or gender.  We are all created in God’s image “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.” Genesis 1:27  So we are all one enormous family.

This is one of the most wonderful gifts God has given us.  About the only thing that I can think of more wonderful than this is making Jesus a member of our family to be our Savior.  “And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.”  Matthew 1:21

I was really pleased by THIS ARTICLE where the former leader of Answers in Genesis’s UK branch, Dr. Monty White, talks about how people responded to his talks about being One Race.  It’s not an eye-crosser, so I’ll just let you check it out for yourself.

Often I like to play “what if?”  with different things that people believe.  There is only One Truth and that is Jesus and His Word, “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”  John 14:6.  But it can help us understand how wonderful God’s gifts are when we think about what other people believe the world is like.  For example, there is no other religion that puts girls on the same level as guys before God!

So, let’s play “what if?” with Evolution and races.  One of the big things Darwin wanted from Evolution is to feel that he was better than others because he was English.  If someone’s face ‘looks’ more like a monkey’s to someone else, then they must not be as highly evolved and are therefore worth less to the future of humanity.  If you’re old enough to handle seeing some of what people have done because they really believed this, watch Ben Stein’s movie Expelled to see some of the things that happened in the 20th Century because of these beliefs.

For me, if you could make anything be true just by believing it, I would never choose to believe that my great, great grandparents were apes, whose ancestors were fish, whose ancestors were amoebas, whose ancestor was a rock.  No thanks, I’ll take being made by God in God’s own image any day.  And guess what, that is the TRUTH!!! Thank you, God, so much!

While listening to my podcasts from Creation Today , I heard them interviewing Kyle Justice, a videographer who is also a creationist working in the Pacific Northwest.  He talked about their family trips to National Parks and deciding to film some kids’ creation shows.  His son is 14 and makes a very enthusiatic host!  Here’s a link to their website Awesome Science. Unfortunately, you have to buy them to see the whole shows, but they have intro clips and other interesting things up.

Have fun! Oh, yeah, the host’s name is Noah, fits, doesn’t it?

…but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly; II Peter 3:5

My Creation Links are Up

I thought I knew most of the creation sites out there, but a look around on Good Search turned up a whole lot more online.  I’m excited to have this list for my own kids to access during their reward/fun time on the computer!

I’d love to hear from you which ones you enjoy and any I somehow missed.

Oh, I’m not going to add it to the link list on its own because of issues like showing God as a white haired Lego guy, but my kids had a blast today watching the creation story at The Brick Testament.  It takes a lot to load the pictures, but they are extraordinary.

 

And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day. Genesis 1:31
