Evolution, Really?

The headline reads "Scientists Force Evolution in the Lab"

The journalist played right into the fairy-tale. What did they actually accomplish? Did they “Force” a gill breathing fish to hatch a lung breathing mammal that crawled out of the water? No, that would be absurd! Instead they have created a caterpillar that changes color depending on the temperature, something that already occurs naturally in another species of caterpillar. But ultimately… it’s still just a caterpillar!

Dog breeders have been doing the same thing for centuries and ultimately… they still just breed dogs!

It’s not a problem with science, but that they call certain discoveries evolution. You want to show us proof, let’s see the human magically (i.e. scientifically) pop out of a chimp! Then watch to see which chimp sibling the evolved human takes as a mate and what the offspring looks like (personally, if I were that first evolved man, I’d be disgusted with my options!). Let’s see scientists “mutate” (i.e. create) a caterpillar that comes out of it’s cocoon as a bird! Sounds pretty ridiculous doesn’t it? But that is what would be required for all living creatures to have come from one common puddle of pond scum!

I can take a computer, crack open the case and make modifications, and say I evolved the computer so it must be a random product of millions of years of evolution, but we all still know the truth: that the computer was designed and created and all I did was fiddle with the original design!

One part of the problem is that pseudo-scientists are so eager to fabricate “proof” that their actions are no longer scientific. And, like all good chimps, they proudly beat their chests as they receive accolades, which is truly their goal (to receive accolades). Another part of the problem is the lack of training by journalists that print the pseudo-science and readers without the ability to discern the truth are misled.

21 My son, preserve sound judgment and discernment,
do not let them out of your sight;
22 they will be life for you,

an ornament to grace your neck.
Proverbs 3:21-22

1 Then the LORD answered Job out of the storm. He said:
2 "Who is this that darkens my counsel

with words without knowledge?
3 Brace yourself like a man;

I will question you,
and you shall answer me.
4 "Where were you when I laid the earth's foundation?

Tell me, if you understand.
Job 38:1-4

19 "Do you give the horse his strength
or clothe his neck with a flowing mane?
20 Do you make him leap like a locust,

striking terror with his proud snorting?
21 He paws fiercely, rejoicing in his strength,

and charges into the fray.
22 He laughs at fear, afraid of nothing;

he does not shy away from the sword.
23 The quiver rattles against his side,

along with the flashing spear and lance.
24 In frenzied excitement he eats up the ground;

he cannot stand still when the trumpet sounds.
25 At the blast of the trumpet he snorts, 'Aha!'

He catches the scent of battle from afar,
the shout of commanders and the battle cry.
Job 39:19-25

15 "Look at the behemoth,
which I made along with you
and which feeds on grass like an ox.
16 What strength he has in his loins,

what power in the muscles of his belly!
17 His tail sways like a cedar;

the sinews of his thighs are close-knit.
18 His bones are tubes of bronze,

his limbs like rods of iron.
19 He ranks first among the works of God,

yet his Maker can approach him with his sword.
Job 40:15-19

I come to tears every time I read the last few chapters of the book of Job (Pronounced with a long O). How truly awesome nature is. Too bad we smart monkeys keep wanting to take the credit!

America For Sale!

An email message to President Bush. Details from AFA action alert:

Our port operations in New York, New Jersey, Baltimore, New Orleans, Miami and Philadelphia have been, or soon will be, purchased by Dubai Ports World, a state-owned company in the United Arab Emirates, a firm that manages port facilities. The purchase was cleared by an obscure federal panel, the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States, with little fanfare.

The United Arab Emirates government is generally pro-U.S., but the September 11 hijackers traveled easily through the country, and Al Qaeda-linked groups have used its banking system. Senator Tom Coburn of Oklahoma is pleading with the administration to reverse the decision. At a press conference outlining his opposition, he said, "Handing the keys to U.S. strategic ports to a regime that recognized the Taliban is not a sound next step in our war against terror."

Dear Mr. President,
Please do not sell America to the UAE!
I ask that you override the agreement with the Dubai Ports World of the United Arab Emirates to purchase our ports in New York, New Jersey, Baltimore, Philadelphia, New Orleans, and Miami. I also ask that you cooperate with Congress in having hearings on this proposed sale to Dubai Ports World of the United Arab Emirates.
There are two issues, Mr. President. One, is that we are taking business and jobs from Americans. Two, is that we are giving security of these ports to an Arab nation. Both are very disturbing!

Presidents Day Gift: President George Washington

George Washington
Man of Character; Man of Honor; Man of America; Man of God


Born: February 22, 1732, in Westmoreland County, Virginia
Died: December 14, 1799, at Mount Vernon, Virginia
Father: Augustine Washington
Mother: Mary Ball Washington
Married: Martha Dandridge Custis (1732-1802), on January 6, 1759
Children: John "Jack" Parke Custis (adopted) and Martha "Patsy" Custis (adopted)
Religion: Episcopalian
Education: No formal education
Occupation: Planter, Soldier
Political Party: Federalist

George Washington was a man of great character and honor. He was a man committed to the cause of American Independence and a man that unabashedly put his faith and trust in God Almighty. It was through his faith that he found his character and the greater cause for freedom. He, as did many of the Founding Fathers, understood the bigger story. He understood that there was more to reality than him and his surroundings and that there was a transcendent cause to fight for!

As we celebrate Presidents Day and George Washington’s birthday this month, let’s take a look at a few of his words and actions to see the scope of his faith and character.

George Washington was a man that could see the greater cause of independence. He felt duty bound to serve this cause and to do so without compensation.

(1) June 16, 1775, Washington makes his acceptance speech [as commander in chief of Continental forces] in Congress. As a gesture of civic virtue, he declines a salary but requests that Congress pay his expenses at the close of the war.

He knew that to be successful in our cause we would need the blessings of Heaven and to obtain such blessings required a military force of high moral character and obedience; going so far as to order attendance of chaplain services.

(2) It is required and expected that exact discipline be observed, and due Subordination prevail thro' the whole Army, as a Failure in these most essential points must necessarily produce extreme Hazard, Disorder and Confusion; and end in shameful disappointment and disgrace.
The General most earnestly requires, and expects, a due observance of those articles of war, established for the Government of the army, which forbid profane cursing, swearing and drunkeness; And in like manner requires and expects, of all Officers, and Soldiers, not engaged on actual duty, a punctual attendance on divine Service, to implore the blessings of heaven upon the means used for our safety and defence
.

Knowing that our cause would fail if it were not fought for the freedoms and truths of unalienable rights offered through Christ and with God’s blessings, he ensured proper compensation for the Chaplains assigned to each regiment.

(3) I have long had it on my mind to mention to Congress, that frequent applications had been made to me respecting the Chaplain's pay, which is too small to encourage men of Abilities. Some of them who have left their Flocks, are Obliged to pay the parson acting for them more than they receive. I need not point out the great utility of Gentlemen whose lives and conversation are unexceptionable, being employed for that service in this Army. There are two ways of making it worth the Attention of such; one is, an advancement of their pay, the other, that one Chaplain be appointed to two regiments; this last I think may be done without Inconvenience, [91] I beg leave to recommend this matter to Congress whose sentiments thereon I shall impatiently expect.
[Note 91: Congress resolved (January 16) that there should be one chaplain to every two regiments, and that his pay should be $33 1/3 a month.]


First Inaugural Address In the City of New York
Thursday, April 30, 1789

The first paragraph of his inauguration as President, Washington humbly admits he was looking forward to retirement, and does not feel himself qualified, but duty bound anyway to serve.

(4) AMONG the vicissitudes incident to life no event could have filled me with greater anxieties than that of which the notification was transmitted by your order, and received on the 14th day of the present month. On the one hand, I was summoned by my country, whose voice I can never hear but with veneration and love, from a retreat which I had chosen with the fondest predilection, and, in my flattering hopes, with an immutable decision, as the asylum of my declining years—a retreat which was rendered every day more necessary as well as more dear to me by the addition of habit to inclination, and of frequent interruptions in my health to the gradual waste committed on it by time. On the other hand, the magnitude and difficulty of the trust to which the voice of my country called me, being sufficient to awaken in the wisest and most experienced of her citizens a distrustful scrutiny into his qualifications, could not but overwhelm with despondence one who (inheriting inferior endowments from nature and unpracticed in the duties of civil administration) ought to be peculiarly conscious of his own deficiencies. In this conflict of emotions all I dare aver is that it has been my faithful study to collect my duty from a just appreciation of every circumstance by which it might be affected. All I dare hope is that if, in executing this task, I have been too much swayed by a grateful remembrance of former instances, or by an affectionate sensibility to this transcendent proof of the confidence of my fellow-citizens, and have thence too little consulted my incapacity as well as disinclination for the weighty and untried cares before me, my error will be palliated by the motives which mislead me, and its consequences be judged by my country with some share of the partiality in which they originated.

Secondly, President Washington acknowledges God’s divine intervention and blessings on the establishment of our free nation and goes so far as to say that every step advanced toward independence and freedom was distinguished by an act of God.

Such being the impressions under which I have, in obedience to the public summons, repaired to the present station, it would be peculiarly improper to omit in this first official act my fervent supplications to that Almighty Being who rules over the universe, who presides in the councils of nations, and whose providential aids can supply every human defect, that His benediction may consecrate to the liberties and happiness of the people of the United States a Government instituted by themselves for these essential purposes, and may enable every instrument employed in its administration to execute with success the functions allotted to his charge. In tendering this homage to the Great Author of every public and private good, I assure myself that it expresses your sentiments not less than my own, nor those of my fellow-citizens at large less than either. No people can be bound to acknowledge and adore the Invisible Hand which conducts the affairs of men more than those of the United States. Every step by which they have advanced to the character of an independent nation seems to have been distinguished by some token of providential agency; and in the important revolution just accomplished in the system of their united government the tranquil deliberations and voluntary consent of so many distinct communities from which the event has resulted can not be compared with the means by which most governments have been established without some return of pious gratitude, along with an humble anticipation of the future blessings which the past seem to presage. These reflections, arising out of the present crisis, have forced themselves too strongly on my mind to be suppressed. You will join with me, I trust, in thinking that there are none under the influence of which the proceedings of a new and free government can more auspiciously commence.

Third, President Washington places the foundation of America’s national policy on the private morality of its citizens and further declares the standard of that morality on “the eternal rules of order and right which Heaven itself has ordained;” that would be the moral teachings of the Holy Bible. Look at where our country came from and where we are today… I think President Truman sums it up best when he says, on February 15, 1959, at an Attorney General’s Conference, “If we don’t have a proper fundamental moral background, we will finally end up with a totalitarian government which does not believe in rights for anybody except the State.” Ben Franklin knew the truth when he proclaimed, "This will be the best security for maintaining our liberties. A nation of well-informed men who have been taught to know and prize the rights which God has given them cannot be enslaved. It is in the religion of ignorance that tyranny begins." Let’s return to President Washington’s speech.

By the article establishing the executive department it is made the duty of the President "to recommend to your consideration such measures as he shall judge necessary and expedient." The circumstances under which I now meet you will acquit me from entering into that subject further than to refer to the great constitutional charter under which you are assembled, and which, in defining your powers, designates the objects to which your attention is to be given. It will be more consistent with those circumstances, and far more congenial with the feelings which actuate me, to substitute, in place of a recommendation of particular measures, the tribute that is due to the talents, the rectitude, and the patriotism which adorn the characters selected to devise and adopt them. In these honorable qualifications I behold the surest pledges that as on one side no local prejudices or attachments, no separate views nor party animosities, will misdirect the comprehensive and equal eye which ought to watch over this great assemblage of communities and interests, so, on another, that the foundation of our national policy will be laid in the pure and immutable principles of private morality, and the preeminence of free government be exemplified by all the attributes which can win the affections of its citizens and command the respect of the world. I dwell on this prospect with every satisfaction which an ardent love for my country can inspire, since there is no truth more thoroughly established than that there exists in the economy and course of nature an indissoluble union between virtue and happiness; between duty and advantage; between the genuine maxims of an honest and magnanimous policy and the solid rewards of public prosperity and felicity; since we ought to be no less persuaded that the propitious smiles of Heaven can never be expected on a nation that disregards the eternal rules of order and right which Heaven itself has ordained; and since the preservation of the sacred fire of liberty and the destiny of the republican model of government are justly considered, perhaps, as deeply, as finally, staked on the experiment entrusted to the hands of the American people.

Besides the ordinary objects submitted to your care, it will remain with your judgment to decide how far an exercise of the occasional power delegated by the fifth article of the Constitution is rendered expedient at the present juncture by the nature of objections which have been urged against the system, or by the degree of inquietude which has given birth to them. Instead of undertaking particular recommendations on this subject, in which I could be guided by no lights derived from official opportunities, I shall again give way to my entire confidence in your discernment and pursuit of the public good; for I assure myself that whilst you carefully avoid every alteration which might endanger the benefits of an united and effective government, or which ought to await the future lessons of experience, a reverence for the characteristic rights of freemen and a regard for the public harmony will sufficiently influence your deliberations on the question how far the former can be impregnably fortified or the latter be safely and advantageously promoted
.

And once again, President Washington rejects a paycheck for his service! Could you imagine our elected officials doing such a noble thing today?

To the foregoing observations I have one to add, which will be most properly addressed to the House of Representatives. It concerns myself, and will therefore be as brief as possible. When I was first honored with a call into the service of my country, then on the eve of an arduous struggle for its liberties, the light in which I contemplated my duty required that I should renounce every pecuniary compensation. From this resolution I have in no instance departed; and being still under the impressions which produced it, I must decline as inapplicable to myself any share in the personal emoluments which may be indispensably included in a permanent provision for the executive department, and must accordingly pray that the pecuniary estimates for the station in which I am placed may during my continuance in it be limited to such actual expenditures as the public good may be thought to require.

Lastly, President Washington closes by acknowledging God once again and pointing out that the success of the American government depends on God’s divine blessing.

Having thus imparted to you my sentiments as they have been awakened by the occasion which brings us together, I shall take my present leave; but not without resorting once more to the benign Parent of the Human Race in humble supplication that, since He has been pleased to favor the American people with opportunities for deliberating in perfect tranquillity, and dispositions for deciding with unparalleled unanimity on a form of government for the security of their union and the advancement of their happiness, so His divine blessing may be equally conspicuous in the enlarged views, the temperate consultations, and the wise measures on which the success of this Government must depend.

I close with this quote (5), ”Let us with caution indulge the supposition that morality can be maintained without religion. Reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principle.”


“Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord, the people he chose for his inheritance.”
Psalm 33:12

White Witch takes the day!

Ohio Public School Board Protects Students From Critical and Investigative Thinking!

Bum… Bum… Bum… Bum… Bum…

Do you hear the war drums? The steady beat as the White Witch’s army advances?

Tuesday February 14th, Ohio School Board Eliminates Disputed Evolution Language http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,184881,00.html

They decided to delete material encouraging students to seek evidence for and against evolution.

What blasphemous material did they delete? The material says students should be able to "describe how scientists continue to investigate and critically analyze aspects of evolutionary theory."

Maybe you should go back and read that again… pretty scathing language against evolution don’t you think? Best we not let our children “investigate and critically analyze” theories!

Score another battle for the naturalist, humanist, and atheist hordes of the White Witch’s army! Isn’t it good to know that school children in that Ohio school district will be safe from any critical and investigative thinking? That the state cherishes and values your children so much as to ensure that they get the “proper” indoctrination?

I’ll leave you with some evolutionary science to ponder:
“… many evolutionists, including Darwin, taught that women were biologically and intellectually inferior to men.”
“Darwin himself concluded that the differences between male and female humans were so enormous that he was amazed that ‘such different beings belong to the same species’ and he was surprised that ‘even greater differences still had not been evolved.’”
“Darwin concluded that males were like animal breeders, shaping women to their liking by sexual selection.”
http://www.answersingenesis.org/tj/v14/i1/females.asp

Bum… Bum… Bum… Bum… Bum…

Call your school board members today and make sure they aren’t already under the Witch’s spell!



A Tribute to Grandpa Dobra!
For boldly and unapologetically defending the truth of his faith in Jesus Christ!
Forgive me for mocking you and thank you for modeling a Godly character. God forgive me for my doubt and unbelief, and thank you for saving me!

The Reality of the Narnia Fantasy

I’ve been leading my Life Group through a Bible study of C. S. Lewis’s The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe. We started with an introduction to the cursed land of Narnia and how it is similar to our cursed world.

Romans 8:19-21 (New Living Translation)
19 For all creation is waiting eagerly for that future day when God will reveal who his children really are. 20 Against its will, everything on earth was subjected to God's curse. 21 All creation anticipates the day when it will join God's children in glorious freedom from death and decay.

In chapter 6 of the fantasy we see the four children embarking on a potentially dangerous adventure because a friend has been arrested on their account. Sometimes for me, sitting here without need or want nor worry, it is hard to see the reality of the curse beyond my inevitable death and inconsequential worries. Is there really an evil empire persecuting people that have nothing more threatening than love? YES!!

It is important to remember the scope of the world we live in, so that we here in comfy cozy America remember that we do have brothers and sisters not only in need of basic provisions, but who are being beaten and imprisoned simply because they have been touched by the living God. So I would like to share a recent story with you from Gospel for Asia. I am reprinting this without permission, the original story can be found here:
http://www.gfa.org/gfa/latestnewsarticle?wid=3CDHoekV6xeYP7NvsntWow

02/02/2006: Missionary Kidnapped in North India
A Gospel for Asia native missionary has been kidnapped by terrorists in the Indian state of Chhattisgarh. Pastor Subhash, a young single missionary who has started five mission stations and led 28 people to Christ, was returning home in a taxi with five other people-but never reached his destination.

The taxi and its passengers disappeared and have not been found. The day after the disappearance, Subhash's parents received a letter saying that he had been kidnapped by an extremist Marxist group known as the Naxalites. The letter did not mention any ransom or other demand, but did ask that Subhash's parents "help in order to secure his safe release."

GFA President K.P. Yohannan noted that this latest incident came in a week in which more than two dozen GFA native missionaries and Bible college students were badly beaten in attacks in Bihar and Madhya Pradesh. It also comes as hundreds of thousands of Hindus are planning to swarm into a tribal area of Gujarat in order to persecute the Christians living there.

Dr. Yohannan has appealed to Christians around the world to pray for Subhash's safe release, and for his parents, that God will be with them through this ordeal. "Please also join me and the rest of the GFA family in praying for all of our persecuted brothers and sisters across South Asia who are suffering at the hands of anti-Christian elements," Dr. Yohannan said.

Read the happy ending to this story here:
http://www.gfa.org/gfa/latestnewsarticle?wid=TAXaBzxGn2kosGbsNqNLwg

Hebrews 13:3 commands us to “Remember those in prison as if you were their fellow prisoners, and those who are mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering.”

Take a moment to thank God for your freedoms and comforts and spend a little time praying for those that are on the front lines! I also encourage you to browse through the Gospel for Asia web site. It’s hard to understand the hatred and violence cast at people that feed the hungry, guide the lost, shelter the poor… but then it is a cursed world after all!

God Bless <><

Al Gore: Traitor or Fool

In all the buzz about Vice President Cheny's hunting accident most mainstream media outlets missed Al Gore denouncing America at an Arab Muslim economic forum.

He's at it again!
“’What possesses a former vice president of the U.S. to travel to the birthplace of Islamist terrorism and denounce his country?’ asked the website Investors.com in an editorial.”

Proverbs 26:11
As a dog returns to its vomit,
so a fool repeats his folly.

“Previous keynote speakers have included former President Clinton, whose 2002 appearance netted him a $300,000 fee, according to the campaign finance website PoliticalMoneyOnline. Clinton returned in 2004.”

Proverbs 21:6
A fortune made by a lying tongue
is a fleeting vapor and a deadly snare.

Is he a traitor or just a fool?

Proverbs 26:12
Do you see a man wise in his own eyes?
There is more hope for a fool than for him.

Full article here: http://www.cnsnews.com/ViewPolitics.asp?Page=\Politics\archive\200602\POL20060214a.html

My humble opinion:
1. He loves the money
2. He loves the popularity
3. He would love to be the head of a world power like the U.N. even at the expense of American independence.

He needs our compassion and prayers because he is a slave to his materialistic masters and One World Power ideology.

March of the White Witch

Public School Agenda and Christian Discrimination

I recently wrote about how the theory of evolution is the story of origins for the Humanist religion and that it is the state sponsored religion being forced on our children in public schools. I know this first hand because I was a product of that indoctrination and it took an act of God and a lot of questioning and research to discover the truth. How I made that transition is a story for another day. Today I would like to point out some recent events that will, God willing, make the “Agenda” of public school indoctrination a little clearer to those that still haven’t broken free of the (1) White Witch’s spell!

First let’s look into events in the Kitzmiller v. Dover (Pa.) School District decision. (2) Rick Strange writes, “On December 21, 2005, U.S. District Judge John E. Jones rendered a decision on this case. In his ruling, Judge Jones declared intelligent design a religion and ordered the school board to remove the 159-word statement. He also went on to provide special protection for the theory of evolution, stating that the school board could not require teachers to denigrate the theory. In other words, he placed the theory beyond all criticism.” That should make everyone, I repeat: everyone, very, very nervous! Even if you’re not a Christian or Jew, for a judge to rule that one THEORY of the origins of life is beyond all criticism closes the doors of academic freedom and clearly sets the precedent of a state sponsored religion. I get the taste of communism in my mouth just thinking about it!

What was the case about? It was about whether the school board could allow a statement to be read at the beginning of each ninth grade biology class. The statement says in part:

"Because Darwin's theory is a theory, it continues to be tested as new evidence is discovered. The theory is not a fact. Gaps in the theory exist for which there is no evidence. Intelligent design is an explanation of the origin of life that differs from Darwin's view. With respect to any theory, students are encouraged to keep an open mind. The school leaves the discussion of the origins of life to individual students and their families."

Let me point out a few things that common sense should make obvious about that statement:
A) A theory is not a fact, as the statement clearly and truthfully indicates!
From the Encarta Dictionary, a theory is defined, in part, as “speculation or an idea formed by speculation; hypothetical circumstances.”
B) There are gaps, very big ones I might add, in the theory of evolution for which there is no evidence, as the statement clearly and truthfully indicates! See references at the end of this document for more information (4).
C) It mentions Intelligent Design as a differing explanation, not supporting or endorsing it.
D) It states that students should keep an open mind, which is the very foundation of academic freedom!
E) It leaves further discussion of origins up to the student and their parents, as a free and unhindered public school system should.

What is wrong with that? It is a truthful, unbiased statement that is designed with the spirit of academic freedom. Let me tell you what I think the White Witch doesn’t want you to know:
A) As long as the THEORY serves the state’s agenda, it is a fact!
B) see A
C) Any criticism of the state’s sponsored religion is blasphemy!
D) The state can not control the population if they think for themselves!
E) The state has taken the control of children away from parents! * See references below for more proof of this (5)!

Kind of sounds like China to me! It should send chills down your spine. But there is still hope.

Then today (2/3/06) I read this from (3) CNSNews.com, “A federal appeals court in New York ruled it's okay for New York City Public Schools to ban the display of Christian nativity scenes during the Christmas season, even though displays of the Jewish menorah and Islamic star and crescent are permitted during Hanukkah and Ramadan.” At first I took serious offense, but then it dawned on me that the reason that Christianity is singled out is because it is the one true path to salvation. And not only that, but anyone freed from the shackles of this world through Jesus Christ can clearly see the Agenda that is unfolding all around us and act as a counter agent against it! No wonder the White Witch is working so hard to rid America of Christianity!

The current state of our culture was predicted by President Truman when he says, on February 15, 1959, at an Attorney General’s Conference, “If we don’t have a proper fundamental moral background, we will finally end up with a totalitarian government which does not believe in rights for anybody except the State.” We clearly aren’t at the totalitarian state yet, but I think we are certainly on our way!

So how do we turn the tide? (6) President George Washington, our first Commander in Chief, acknowledged God’s divine intervention and blessings on the establishment of our free nation and goes so far as to say that every step advanced toward independence and freedom was distinguished by an act of God. He further places the foundation of America’s national policy on the private morality of its citizens and declares the standard of that morality on “the eternal rules of order and right which Heaven itself has ordained;” that would be the moral teachings of the Holy Bible.

Don’t wait before you draw a line in the sand! You may be thinking, “that won’t happen in my home town.” But if no one ever stands up and draws the line, it will happen! If the White Witch made a full on charge everyone would recognize it, but the slow steady march of “progress” toward Humanism is almost imperceptible.

“Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord, the people he chose for his inheritance.” Psalm 33:12

Friends, I write this knowing full well the labels that will be cast at me. But I am merely pointing out the obvious and look to only one source for approval, Jesus Christ. I have no personal gain in this other than the hope of seeing dead souls awakened. Please follow the links below to learn more. Number 5 is frightening. They are a couple recent court rulings showing how much control has been taken away from parents concerning the education of their children once they enter the public school system.

Stand firm in your faith and take a stand against the White Witch were you see her working!

God bless.

Here's just one example: look at Mount Rushmore, and any thinking person would say it is not the result of random wind erosion, but rather the result of intelligent design. No one debates that, but evolutionists claim with a straight face that the DNA molecule, which contains all the genetic information required for life, came into being by mere chance. Yet the amount of information that could be stored in a pinhead's volume of DNA is equivalent to a pile of paperback books 500 times as high as the distance from the Earth to the moon, with each book having a different yet specific content!
