  • "The God of New Beginnings" (Sermon for the Holy Trinity; on Genesis 1; Acts 2; Matthew 28)

    “The God of New Beginnings” (Genesis 1; Acts 2; Matthew 28) Today is Trinity Sunday. It is on this day every year that we call special attention to the doctrine of the Holy Trinity. This teaching is true every day of the year, of course, but on this particular Sunday, we call special attention to it. The Scripture readings for today bring out the nature of God as being triune, that is, one God in three persons, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. The hymns we sing on this day are trinitarian in their content. And Trinity Sunday is the one...

    British rock band Genesis have confirmed they are reforming for a 2020 tour -- their first in 13 years. Phil Collins, Tony Banks and Mike Rutherford made the announcement during an appearance on Zoe Ball's BBC Radio 2 breakfast show Wednesday morning. Revealing details of their comeback tour, they said they will perform a series of shows across the UK later this year. The trio -- the band's classic line-up -- will be joined by Collins' 18-year-old son Nicholas on drums and longstanding associate Daryl Stuermer on guitar and bass.

    Job 19:25, "For I know that my Redeemer liveth, and that He shall stand at the latter day upon the earth." Job understood as we can that we have a living Redeemer, Who Is Jesus Christ our Lord and Saviour, and that He will one day reign over all His Creation as He first intended. To "redeem" means to buy back something that has fallen to an enemy. As recorded in Genesis, all Creation was in the hands of God, but when His most beloved of all His creation--mankind, Adam and Eve--chose to rebel against their Creator God's express Word...

    For many buyers whose top priority is a car that won’t break down, the J.D. Power Initial Quality Study is gospel. J.D. Power just released the results of its 2019 Initial Quality Study, and the Korean trio of Genesis, Kia, and Hyundai took the top three spots. Luxury brand Genesis ranked highest, followed by sibling brands Kia and Hyundai. It’s a big win for Genesis which, as a relative newcomer to the luxury segment, needs to build credibility with buyers. The high scores achieved by Kia and Hyundai show that you don’t have to spend a lot of money to...

    Depths of Pentecost ^ | May 25, 2019 | Philip Cottraux
    Sin Lieth at the Door By Philip Cottraux Eden was paradise on Earth, a place where the Lord came down to personally walk and talk with man. How much closer to God can you be this side of heaven? Yet because of sin, only one generation later, Adam and Eve’s children were killing one another. What a fall from grace! You could be a great witness for God your whole life, preaching the gospel, laying hands on the sick, and seeing miracles and healings. It could take decades of fasting and praying to reach such a high spiritual level. But...

    National Review ^ | May 13, 2019 | Razib Khan
    It is a crowning achievement of Western civilization and a rejoinder to the modern myths of the Left. As an evolutionary geneticist and a conservative, I take some interest in critiques of Darwinism. I have come to expect that every few years a new book by Michael Behe, a professor of biochemistry at Lehigh University, will trigger commentary relaying his skepticism of evolutionary theory to the interested public. And this will result in vociferous rejoinders from evolutionary biologists. But evolutionary biology is nothing for conservatives to fear, because it is one of the crowning achievements of modern Western civilization. It...
  • World’s longest salt cave discovered in Israel (near pillar named “Lot’s wife”)

    NY Post ^ | 3/28/19
    MOUNT SODOM, ISRAEL — Israeli researchers said Thursday they have surveyed what they now believe to be the world’s longest salt cave, a network of twisting passageways at the southern tip of the Dead Sea. A recently completed survey of the Malham Cave determined the labyrinthine cavern stretches more than 6 miles in length. That puts it well ahead of Iran’s Namakdan Cave, previously thought to be the longest salt cave. **SNIP** The Malham Cave’s main outlet yawns not far from a salt pillar named “Lot’s wife,” after the biblical character who was petrified for looking back at the destruction...

    Apollo 8 was the second crewed mission of the Apollo program and the first mission to bring humans to the moon. The six-day mission lifted off on Dec. 21, 1968, with its crew of Frank Borman, Jim Lovell and Bill Anders. The flight included a day orbiting the moon, during which the astronauts took the "Earthrise" picture — one of the most iconic photographs ever taken of our planet.

    All modern humans descended from a solitary pair who lived 100,000 to 200,000 years ago, scientists say. Scientists surveyed the genetic 'bar codes' of five million animals - including humans - from 100,000 different species and deduced that we sprang from a single pair of adults after a catastrophic event almost wiped out the human race. These bar codes, or snippets of DNA that reside outside the nuclei of living cells, suggest that it's not just people who came from a single pair of beings, but nine out of every 10 animal species, too

    “The Word Is Very Near You” (Deuteronomy 30:11-30; Genesis 2:18-25; Mark 10:2-16) In the Book of Deuteronomy, Moses is having a review session with the people of Israel. They’re about to enter the promised land of Canaan, and Moses has some things he wants to go over with them. That’s the Book of Deuteronomy in a nutshell. Moses reviews all that the Lord has done to bring them to this point. How he had brought them out of Egypt, out of their bondage there. How he had provided for them during their wilderness journey, in spite of their grumbling and...

    The Price Lot Paid By Philip Cottraux Because of a conflict between their herdsmen, Abraham and his nephew Lot decided to part ways. The grazing land just wasn’t big enough for both tribes. Lot could choose where to go; in Genesis 13:9, Abraham said is not the whole land before thee? Separate thyself, I pray thee, from me: if thou wilt take the left hand, then I will go to the right; or if thou depart to the right hand, then I will go to the left. Then lifted up his eyes, and beheld all the plain of Jordan, that...

    The problem of the wet Sahara by Michael Oard This article is from Journal of Creation 31(1):3–4 April 2017 Both creation and secular geologists agree the earth’s deserts and semi-arid areas were once well watered.1 Creation scientists attribute this to the ponding of water in enclosed basins during the run-off stage of the Flood and greater Ice Age precipitation. During this time the Great Salt Lake in Utah, USA, was about 12 times its current area and about 330 m deeper.2 Measuring the ancient shorelines in Death Valley, California, USA (figure 1), shows a lake once filled Death Valley 170...

    Between 120 and 200 people gathered outside the Ark Encounter on July 7 to protest on the attraction’s second anniversary. Organized by the Tri-State Freethinkers, co-founder Jim G. Helton said he was happy with the turnout — more than double than last year’s protest. “The Ark Encounter has become a symbol of what’s wrong in Kentucky with the war on separation of church and state,” Helton said. “And when equality is under attack, atheists show up.” Several speakers took the stage to kick off the protest, then the group marched up the sidewalk to the entrance of the Ark. Helton...

    Is Genesis psychology or history? A response to Jordan Peterson by Lita Cosner and Paul Price Published: 26 July 2018 (GMT+10) We recently listened to a lecture series on the psychological significance of the biblical stories by Dr. Jordan Peterson, professor of psychology at Toronto University. It has taken a long time to distill the hours of lectures down to a form that can be examined in something as short as this article. It was a daunting task! However, the first lecture alone has over 2.5 million views on YouTube, indicating that Peterson’s lectures have a real audience, so it...

    A Virginia teen suffered significant burns to his face and arm after reportedly being exposed to hogweed. Alex Childress, 17, was inflicted with second-and third-degree burns after unknowingly touching the plant while he was working outside at his landscaping job on Tuesday, according to the Richmond Times-Dispatch. Childress reportedly believed the plant was a weed and went to remove it from the ground. A person's skin can burn and blister after coming in contact with sap from the plant. Childress’ father, Justin, recalled to the outlet how his son told him he had a “really bad sunburn.” “The top layer...

    Landmark new research that involves analyzing millions of DNA barcodes has debunked much about what we know today about the evolution of species. In a massive genetic study, senior research associate at the Program for the Human Environment at Rockefeller University Mark Stoeckle and University of Basel geneticist David Thaler discovered that virtually 90 percent of all animals on Earth appeared at right around the same time. More specifically, they found out that 9 out of 10 animal species on the planet came to being at the same time as humans did some 100,000 to 200,000 years ago. "This conclusion...
