The book, Persuaded by the Evidence, is a compliation of stories of scientists, doctors, and ordinary people who share how they struggled through what they were taught in school concerning evolution and what evidence caused them to be persuaded that the Bible can be trusted as truth, and can be interpreted in a straightforward manner. Members of the Creation Research Society who participate in the CRSnet discussion group initiated this project. The intent of the book is to identify the (more…)

Christmas is an enjoyable time of the year for most people. For many, this time of year includes family gatherings, time off from work, reminiscing about Christmases of the past, and an overall sense of joy.

Yes! It does sound quite surprising, doesn’t it? Well, let me explain. Recently I was talking with my 5-year-old at the breakfast table one morning. And she asked me, “Mommy, were Adam and Eve ever babies?” I explained to her that the Bible says in Genesis 2:25 that God made Adam and Eve, man and woman, and they were declared husband and wife right after their creation. So, the short answer was, “No, they were never babies.” Then my daughter proceeded to ask me , “How old was Eve when (more…)

It’s Christmas. It’s a season for family and the giving of gifts. It’s a time to thank God for giving us a Savior, and now it’s become a season for atheists to push their godless agenda. You are probably aware of the good news that atheists are making people think about God. What are known as the “new” atheists have a new evangelistic campaign.

At this time of year, the hearts of Christ’s followers turn toward Bethlehem. Not so tiny anymore. In these days Bethlehem sits within prison walls, the security “fence” put up by the Israelis to keep out suicide/homicide bombers. I can understand their reasoning, but, boy, is it ever a sad picture! It looks as though you’re driving into a penitentary. I still go in and out of Bethlehem every year. In fact, I was there just six months ago. The visitor now goes through Israeli security at the (more…)

Christmas is no doubt the “busiest” time of year. What seems to make life so overwhelming in this season is our long “to do” list.

People spend time with each other, bake elaborate recipes only made once a year, then shop for the “perfect presents” to give to family and friends. They find their evenings and weekends filled (more…)
