  • Creationist Group 'Answers in Genesis' Disputes 'Lucy' Ancestry Claim

    Earlier this week Google's logo mutated (if you will) from its usual form into a Google Doodle adorned with a series of images depicting an ape evolving into a human. Clicking the Doodle led to information about "AL 288-1," less esoterically known as "Lucy the Australopithecus," or simply "Lucy." Many scientists regard the fossil as an intermediary link between apes and humans.The same day, Googling "lucy australopithecus controversy" turned up a different interpretation of the fossil, including several from Answers in Genesis. The apologetics ministry, which focuses primarily on whether evolution or biblical creation provides the most accurate interpretation...

    "Making the most of your time, because the days are evil" (Ephesians 5:16). Seize opportunities every day to glorify God. In one of the cities of ancient Greece stood a statue carved by Lysippos, a famous Greek sculptor from the fourth century B.C. The statue had wings on its feet and a great lock of hair on its forehead and was bald on the back of its head. This is how it was described: Who . . . was thy sculptor? Lysippos . . . And who art thou? Occasion [or opportunity], the all-subduer . . . Why hast thou...

    "By faith Moses, when he had grown up, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh's daughter; choosing rather to endure ill-treatment with the people of God, than to enjoy the passing pleasures of sin" (Heb. 11:24-25). The world has little to offer compared to the riches of Christ. For forty years Moses enjoyed the best of everything Egypt had to offer: formidable wealth, culture, education, and prestige (Acts 7:22). Yet he never forgot God's promises toward his own people, Israel. Then, "when he was approaching the age of forty, it entered his mind to visit his brethren, the sons...

    Grace to ^ | 1997 | John MacArthur, Grace Community Church
    "Making the most of your time, because the days are evil" (Ephesians 5:16). God expects the believer to use his time wisely. Many people never finish what they begin. There are unfinished symphonies, unfinished paintings, and unfinished sculptures (sometimes because the composer or artist died). There are relationships that never become all they could be, ministries that never come to fruition, dreams that always remain dreams, and hopes that always remain hopes. For a lot of people, life can be an unfinished symphony or a dream without reality. But it doesn't have to be that way. I believe the answer...

    "By faith Moses, when he was born, was hidden for three months by his parents, because they saw he was a beautiful child; and they were not afraid of the king's edict" (Heb. 11:23). God makes His plans; you walk in them by faith. He doesn't need your help or counsel-just your obedience and trust. It has been wisely said that trying to improve on God's plan is more pretentious than trying to improve the Mona Lisa with an ink pen. All you'd do is ruin the masterpiece. The story of Amram and Jochebed, the parents of Moses, is about...

    Republican presidential candidate U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz has made a point of seeking the support of conservative Christians this election cycle. In Iowa, the first state in the presidential primary process, he has the support of dozens of pastors who hail from each of the state's 99 counties. But, he has the same kind of support in each of the early-voting states. "I am excited by the growing number of endorsements we are receiving from pastors," Cruz said recently. Tuesday, his campaign announced a major endorsement that may affect his standing in the biggest primary event that follows the "first...

    The religious right may be yesterday’s news, but its signal accomplishment, the white evangelical voting bloc, remains the Republican Party’s most important constituency. And it’s moving toward Ted Cruz. The latest numbers from Iowa show Cruz neck and neck with Donald Trump thanks to evangelical support. According to Quinnipiac, it’s now Trump at 25 percent, Cruz at 23 percent, and Ben Carson slipping to 18 percent among all likely Republican caucus-goers. White evangelicals, who make up 60 percent of them, now favor Cruz over Carson, 27 percent to 24 percent, with Trump at 20 percent. And as white evangelicals in...

    Martin Luther, as a herald of the Reformation, exclaimed that the church must be profane. It must move out of the temple and into the world. Luther looked to the Latin roots of the word profane, which comes from pro-fanus ("outside the temple"). If Christ is not relevant outside the church, He is insignificant inside the church. If our faith is bound to the inner chambers of the Christian community, it is at best a disobedient faith and at worst, no faith at all. It was the Pharisees who developed the doctrine of salvation by separation. They were practicing segregationists,...

    "Bodily discipline is only of little profit, but godliness is profitable for all things, since it holds promise for the present life and also for the life to come" (1 Timothy 4:8). Godliness should be the believer's priority in life. I'm amazed at how devoted people can be to what they believe is important. There are many people outside Christianity who live in rigid conformity to a lot of meaningless rules. People in totalitarian countries, for example, live in rigid conformity to rules predicated on a denial of biblical truth. They walk circumspectly and toe the mark. Some cultists are...

    "By faith Joseph, when he was dying, made mention of the exodus of the sons of Israel, and gave orders concerning his bones" (Heb. 11:22). God uses your present circumstances to accomplish His future purposes. Like Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, Joseph was an heir to the covenant promises of God. His hope was firmly fixed on God, and he knew that some day his people would be at home in the Promised Land. Although he spent all his adult life in Egypt, never seeing the Promised Land for himself, Joseph's faith never wavered. At the end of his life, he...

    On the mountain of transfiguration, the disciples were stunned by the breakthrough of the dazzling glory of Christ. What previously was veiled by His humanity, hidden from the sight of mortals, suddenly burst through the veil in translucent radiance. With but one glimpse, the disciples were paralyzed. They had but one consuming desire-to abide in that place, basking forever in the light of His countenance. Jesus would have none of it. As Lord of the church, He commanded His disciples to forget about pitching tents and sent them down the mountain and into the world. The day Christ died, those...

    "Therefore be careful how you walk, not as unwise men, but as wise" (Ephesians 5:15). Walking wisely is a step in the right direction. Sometimes a soldier has the thankless task of clearing mine fields from enemy territory. If you're aware of the procedure, you know the work is both dangerous and tedious. To proceed in an orderly fashion, a soldier marks areas that are considered dangerous and areas that have been cleared. Above all, he makes sure he is careful where he's walking! In the spiritual realm, Paul is telling believers in Ephesians 5:15 to walk carefully. The Greek...

    "By faith Isaac blessed Jacob and Esau, even regarding things to come" (Heb. 11:20). When you disobey God, you forfeit joy and blessing. Isaac is a fascinating Old Testament character. He was Abraham's long-awaited son, the covenant child, the child of promise. Yet aside from that, he was rather ordinary, passive, and quiet. Just over two chapters of Genesis center on him, whereas the other patriarchs (Abraham, Jacob, and Joseph) command about twelve chapters each. In the final analysis, Isaac believed God and submitted to His will. But overall, his spiritual character seems more reluctant than resolute. After a famine...

    "Grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ" (2 Peter 3:18). Growing in wisdom means growing in Christlikeness. Perhaps you're asking, "Shouldn't believers acquire more wisdom?" Yes, we should. No matter how much of God's wisdom we have, we should always hunger for more. The Bible tells us that we have all the principles we need to walk in wisdom, and yet there's much more available to us. We should "grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ" (2 Peter 3:18), and we should be more and more conformed to...

    Revelation chapter 17 and 18 detail much about the three-fold Babylon of the End Times: Political, Economic and Religious Babylon. The events are mainly covered from an Earthly perspective. The Harlot riding the Beast represents Religious Babylon. She is portrayed as a "harlot" or a "prostitute" because she commits spiritual fornication with the kings or leaders of the world. This would be interpreted that she left her First Love, i.e., preaching the Reconciliation to God in Christ, pursuing instead pure monetary and political gain.

    Tim Keller speaking at chapel for Wheaton College (November 11, 2015), explaining that our culture repudiates as oppressive the idea that someone else names us and gives us an identity, but that when you trust Christ you have the only identity on earth that is received instead of achieved. Keller goes on defend a form of individualism as inescapable but to critique expression individualism (the idea that you must look inside and then express them outwardly no matter what anyone says). He offers five critiques: it is (1) incoherent; (2) unstable; (3) illusory; (4) crushing; (5) excluding. We are social...

    Fellowship Bible Chapel ^ | Nov 8, 2015 | John Haller
    It is becoming increasingly obvious that discernment and wisdom are not gifts endowed upon many whom the masses have put in charge of their governments. The administration's recent demand that boys who identify as girls, but still have all the attributes that make them boys, must have access to girls showers in schools is just one of many decisions and "impositions" that just goes to prove that, as our friend Jacob Prasch once said, we have "lost the ability to reason." From statistics that show that even those who claim to be evangelical are becoming more approving of homosexuality, to...

    Dyspeptic Mutterings ^ | November 6, 2015 | DP
    Aqua regia ("the king's water") is a mixture of acids which dissolves gold. It does one heck of a job: A useful short history of the king's water can be found here. Since 1965, Catholicism has had its own version of aqua regia, and the Church has been guzzling it. It's called ecumenism, but it has gone well beyond rational discussion to a positive hysteria--ecumania, if you will. And it appears to have made ecumaniacs of the USCCB, what with their recommendation for expanded intercommunion. Sounds positively ecumaniacal, in fact. A better dissolver of Catholic teaching you will not find....
