The Puritan ethic of marriage was first to look not for a partner whom you do love passionately at this moment but rather for one whom you can love steadily as your best friend for life, then to proceed with God’s help to do just that.
Some excellent quotes from scientific leaders who believe in a Almighty Creator God.
There are two books laid before us to study, to prevent our falling into error; first, the volume of the Scriptures, which reveal the will of God; then the volume of the Creatures, which express His power. – Francis Bacon
And the Paschal Wager:
How can anyone lose who chooses to become a Christian? If, when he dies, there turns out to be no God and his faith was in vain, he has lost nothing—in fact, he has been happier in life than his nonbelieving friends, If, however, there is a God and a heaven and hell, then he has gained heaven and his skeptical friends will have lost everything in hell! – Blaise Paschal
A word from Michael Faraday.
The Bible, and It alone, with nothing added to It nor taken away from It by man, is the Sole and Sufficient Guide for each individual, at all times and in all circumstances…Faith in the divinity and work of Christ is the gift of God, and the evidence of this faith is obedience to the commandment of Christ. – Michael Faraday
And, of course, the excellent summary from John Herschel:
All human discoveries seem to be made only for the purpose of confirming more and more strongly the truths come from on high and contained in the sacred writings. – John Herschel
Anybody want to deny the excellent work of these men and they were still sane while being a creationist!
A stunning message to Americans . . . and the world.
For 30 years we have suffered intense persecution, and now freedom is bringing another great harm to our churches. This damage is coming from the Christians in America who are sending rock music and evangelists accompanied by rock bands. Our young people do not attend these meetings because we have all committed not to participate in secular entertainment. This is a great burden on our hearts. Many come with Bible in hand and rock music. We are embarrassed by this image of Christianity.
We do not know what words to use in urging that this be stopped. We abhor all Christian rock music coming to our country. Rock music has nothing in common with ministry or service to God. We are very, very against Christian Americans bringing to our country this false image of “ministry” to God. We need spiritual bread; please give us true bread, not false cakes.
It is true that rock music attracts people to the church, but not to Godly living. We were in prison for 15 years and 11 years for Christ’s sake. We were not allowed to have Christian music, but rock music was used as a weapon against us day and night to destroy our souls. We could only resist with much prayer and fasting. Now, we have a time of more openness, and we are no longer taken to prison. However, now it is Christians from America who damage our souls. We do not allow this music in our church, but they rent big stadiums and infect teenagers and adults with their rock music. We, the leadership and congregations of the Unregistered Union of …Churches, the former Persecuted Church, have made an agreement not to allow rock music in our church. We urge you to join with us and we advise you to remove rock music from America. Do not desecrate our teenagers with it. Even the unbelievers recognize it is unholy music and they cannot understand how American Christians can be so much like the world.
We can give you the conclusion that after Russian unbelievers have attended the rock concerts where Christ’s Word was preached, the people were very disappointed and disillusioned with Christianity. We call this music from hell. We urge all Americans to stop giving money for the organization of such concerts in Russia. We want only traditional Christian music in our churches. This is the unanimous decision of all our leaders.
To read more about the Distant Starlight “Problem” see here and here.
On November 15th, Hubble released an article on their website about the most distant galaxy they have ever found. At some 78,184,047,528,993,000,000,000 miles away, this galaxy has been said to give astronomer’s an amazing new sight into galaxy’s evolutionary history.
The diminutive blob, which is only a tiny fraction of the size of our Milky Way galaxy, offers a peek back into a time when the universe was 3 percent of its present age of 13.7 billion years. The newly discovered galaxy, named MACS0647-JD, is observed 420 million years after the big bang. Its light has traveled 13.3 billion years to reach Earth.
Some might wonder, when reading this quote, “why do the universe is billions of years old and then say this galaxy is only 420 million years old?” The answer is found in the complex theory of the speed of light.
According to common knowledge, lights travels at 186,282 miles per second, 11,176,920 miles in a minute, 67,0615,200 miles per hour, 16,094,764,800 miles per day, 112,663,353,600 miles per week, and some 5,878,499,814,210 miles per year. As you can see, light travels very fast.
Anyway, when evolutionists “find” a new galaxy they look at it and calculate how many light-years it is away from the Earth. Then, once they have calculated that, they take the supposed age of the universe, 13.7 billions years, and work out the current age of the galaxy they are seeing.
However, since the galaxy they are looking at is so far away the evolutionists assume that it is just in its “baby” stages and this will give us a great look into the evolution of galaxies. But, something the evolutionists forgot is that this galaxy has always been visible but we just haven’t developed, until now, the right tool to see it. Its light is always there, the only way the evolutionists can guess at the age of the galaxy is because of the speed of light.
Well, there we have it, we somehow got back to the gigantic debate about distant starlight! To answer this question I recommend you read this article and this one. If you still have questions go here and see Jason Lisle, who wrote the first article and has done years of research into this, at his website. He gets all kinds of questions about starlight and he is literally a genius on the subject.
I find it interesting how the evolutionists, in general, make a job out of assuming things and then make a hobby out of accusing us of assuming things!
