The Persecuted Church

The month of November has been dedicated to praying for the persecuted church. We are asked to pray for the protection of our brothers and sisters who are daily persecuted for a belief in Jesus Christ. We live out a Christianity in America that is much different from the rest of the world. We try to find the church or youth group that best suits our likes and dislikes while we worship in air-conditioned sanctuaries with high-tech sound systems. Well, the persecuted church has a lesson to teach us all.

Creation vs. Evolution: Part II

          Creationism was once the foundation for science. Education was once focused on a reliance on God and His Word. Science has now taken a shift from reliance on God to self-reliance through science, and education has followed. Although creationism has been made out to be a myth, the evidences for an intelligent designer are abounding. As discoveries in science are being made, evolution is losing the high ground. The evidences that atheists give for evolution are becoming more and more complicated and embark on more and more rabbit trails in order to ward off criticism. The complicated arguments that evolutionists present need to be answered with intelligent responses. This article contains a few more complicated evidences for creationism than my last article, “Creation vs. Evolution: Part I”. This article will discuss the proofs of irreducible complexity and molecular biology, which are more on the complicated side, but we need to know the complex side of arguments. The lofty evidences that are presented for evolution can only be answered by intelligent answers; so let’s begin.

In his book, Origin of Species, Charles Darwin says,

Creation vs. Evolution: Part I

I was recently told that “the debate between creation and evolution has been over for centuries and only religious fanatics deny the science.” Now this begs the question: does science disprove creationism? Is there no proof for intelligent design in the universe? Is there no evidence of a Creator? You may have heard people ask questions along these lines and maybe you have had them yourself. Atheists like to make a belief in God into something to be mocked, a belief only held by the uneducated and foolish. Are we foolish to believe in a Creator, is evolution proven? No, evolution is not a fact. It is riddled with holes in its very basic claims. Evolution’s basic claim that life evolved from simpler life forms lacks any hard evidence. If evolution
