A Note From Nancy...
Spring is bursting on the scene in Indiana. Flowers are poking their heads out of the dirt, and the trees are getting ready to bloom making walkers, bikers, and golfers very happy people. I have often thought that Spring is a time when God shows his nature through his creative beauty and promise of new life.
God opened the curtains in His book to us with a giant crescendo proclaiming, "In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth." He spoke, and life came to be. Profoundly simple profoundly beautiful. Knowing that our God is the creator, all-knowing, all-powerful, sovereign over all things, faithful and yet personal fills us with awe.
Yet, for many of us, the Creation/Evolution issue causes much confusion among believing Christians. Many of us were taught in schools that if you are intelligent, then you will believe in evolution. Questions to the contrary were not allowed. Evolution is not only disruptive to the minds and hearts of adults, but also to young men and women who believe in the truth of the Bible. Many are chastised by teachers and professors, some of whom are Christians, for not believing in evolution. Most Christian colleges and almost all of secular colleges teach, at best, that life began with God who then, through a series of random evolutionary events, became living creatures. This is the theory of theistic evolution. Is there scientific proof that the Bible is true when it supports God's claim that He is the creator of all things? Yes there is.
Every year when we teach the Anchorsaway lesson on creation, our students are amazed that there is a plethora of scientific proof for creation. Pure science, without bias/presuppositions, proves beyond a reasonable doubt, that God did, in fact, create the universe and all who dwell in it.
Where do you get your information, you ask? The following are some sources and video links that you can watch yourself and hopefully with your families. These are some of the videos that we use to teach our students that scientifically speaking, all life comes from an intelligent designer, and His name is God!
We are not telling you what you have to believe. We are giving you information that we believe you would like to see because many of you have not been given the information needed to make an educated decision.
- Biblical references to creation. The claim that God created goes way beyond Genesis. Click here.
- Our students loved this video of interviews with professors and students on a college campus setting. Evolution vs. God www.evolutionvsgod.com
- This is an 2 1/2 minute animated evolution video that is clever, entertaining and to the point. https://vimeo.com/137035529

Please continue to pray for us. We have much to do in continuing to build partnerships with those ministries and churches that God is bringing to us. It is an exciting time for us. I believe that when Christian ministries and churches come together and share with one another, God will bless the Church and those who will grow in an authentic relationship with Jesus.
"...so that we may no longer be children, tossed to and fro by the waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by human cunning, by craftiness in deceitful schemes. Rather, speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ, from whom the whole body, joined and held together by every joint with which it is equipped, when each part is working properly, makes the body grow so that it builds itself up in love. (Ephesians 4:14-16)"
