[Podcast Episode 64] Did you know there is a difference between worshipping God and praising him? We explore Psalm 95 and what it teaches us about the two, and, of course, how creation fits into both! Then it’s time to find out what process scientists use to uncover new understanding and try it out with Invisible Ink.

Praise and Worship

O come, let us sing unto the Lord: let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation. Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving, and make a joyful noise unto him with psalms. For the Lord is a great God, and a great King above all gods. In his hand are the deep places of the earth: the strength of the hills is his also. The sea is his, and he made it: and his hands formed the dry land.
O come, let us worship and bow down: let us kneel before the Lord our maker.

Want to hear our youth pastor’s sermon that got me started on this idea?

Scientific Method

We discuss:

  • Observe
  • Hypothesize (I’m so proud of those guys saying this clearly!)
  • Test
  • Conclude

This is a simplified way of looking at it, of course, but gives the basics. Plus, you can see how origins science can never follow these guidelines. You can find out more on this issue at:

Invisible Ink

We got our instructions from a library book, but there are plenty of places to find out more online. There are actually a bunch of ways to use chemistry to write invisibly on paper. I found a heavy duty pdf for those who really want to dig into this subject:

But for starting out you might just try lemon juice and milk with a hot lightbulb or iron like we did!

I'm a homeschooling blogger and book writer. The gift God has given me for His kingdom is to understand complex stuff (mostly) and share it with others using everyday words. It is a joy to share God's wonders with all kinds of people and especially the next generation!

Not likely. I’ve already had to call in a favor from him, plus he’s handed off the reins for the Christmas special to open up more time in his schedule.
The main two points were that praise has to do with singing and glorifying God while worship is bowing and submitting to his kingship. In many Bibles they split the Psalm *after* the verse with worship, but it makes a lot of sense as an opening to the 2nd part with all its seriousness.
God bless!

I do not have time to listen to your pastor’s sermon that you reference. Is there any chance that I could get his notes?
