The Origin of Creation

The Origin of Creation
Devotional thought from the messages of Adrian Rogers

Psalm 148:5 - “Let them praise the name of the LORD: for he commanded, and they were created.”

In Genesis 1:11-12 we read, “And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so. And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good.” If evolution were true, then one species would have to evolve into another species, and if that were true, then you would expect to find transitional forms of life. You hear talk about the missing link. May I tell you something? The whole chain is missing!

What do you believe about the origin of creation? Spend some time in God's word today and reflect on it.

The Atheist's Wager....

Ok, let's compare, the Atheist's wager is:

You should live your life and try to make the world a better place for your being in it, whether or not you believe in god. If there is no god, you have lost nothing and will be remembered fondly by those you left behind. If there is a benevolent god, he will judge you on your merits and not just on whether or not you believed in him.

How foolish this thought is.....because who says, that God will judge the atheist' on his merits......and not just on whether you believed in Him.....

Say's who ???....
because if there is a God....then one would have to assume that He would have His own guidelines to live life by......

And we have that....which is the Bible/ the Scriptures.....that the Lord God says, that if you believe on the Lord Jesus Christ you will be saved........and in believing on Him, you must put your trust in what He did for you.......

Meaning that He died on the cross for your sins....and that He paid for your debt/ we WON'T be judged.....for our merits..........because the Bible has already said....that our righteousness is like FITHY RAGS.........

Therefore we NEED a Saviour....and there is only one, namely, Christ Jesus......

God's ways..or mine.....

Devotional thought from the messages of Adrian Rogers

1 Corinthians 7:1-2 - “...It is good for a man not to touch a woman. Nevertheless, to avoid fornication, let every man have his own wife, and let every woman have her own husband.”

Premarital sex always endangers future marital happiness. It follows as night follows day. Surveys have shown that those who were sexually pure when they went to the marriage altar have the greatest opportunity to have a happy marriage. You can understand why. Suppose a man says to a woman “I love you so much I just can’t wait.” He talks her into giving in to his desires. Now think about a man who loves and respects a woman by keeping her pure. Do you see the trust that that builds? God has a wonderful plan for you. Sex is so bad outside marriage because it’s so good inside marriage.

Are you single? Take courage from knowing God’s best is your purity. Though it may be hard to wait, God will honor your obedience.

A Changed Person now .........

This is a testimony on a facebook discussion board I was on with an atheist, this is from a Believer named:

Charlie Bridges:
Hope you two don't mind me dropping in on this conversation. I grew up in a quasi-christian home Lewis and didn't really pay much attention to God and faith. It wasn't un til my 40's that a traumatic event in my life got me to asking questions about life; why am I here, what the heck is going on, is there any rhyme or reason to this life? After some soul searching I decided to look more closely at faith and the possibility in God being real.

I've traveled the world Lewis, 22 countries and every state at last count. I have seen many things in nature first hand, things that most people only see on Discovery channel or some other medium. After much thought, study and observance of the world around me I had to conclude that there must be a creator, a designer of all that I see. My mind cannot wrap around the idea that all of this just came to being out of a "Big Bang". To me, evolution is ludicrous, even impossible.

Having come to the decision that there must be a creator, I decided to start searching for Him. I started of course with my original Christian faith that I grew up in. I didn't stop there though, I checked out other faiths too, dozens of them. I also started with a prayer; I just said "God, if you are real please help me to find you and to understand what I can about you. If You want me to know You, then show Yourself to me".

Since then I think I have studied over 70 religions, including various sects that call themselves Christian. I started this about 12-13 years ago Lewis and I have to tell you, the Christianity of the Bible is the only thing that makes sense to me. It's they only thing that describes my condition, the remedy for it and the hope of some day escaping a world that has gone crazy. I believe in the sinful nature of man because I have seen it in myself. I know right from wrong, and I know that no matter how much I try to do right, I still have a propensity to do wrong (sin)... even to the people I love the most. No matter how hard I try to change myself, I can't do it on my own. I fail everytime. The only thing in my life that has allowed me to change for the better is my faith in Jesus Christ. Don't ask me how that works because I can't explain it. It's just a desire to please the One who paid the price for my sins. Just to let you know, I'm not a scientist, preacher or scholar of any kind. I'm just a retired Navy man and truck driver.

Knowing that I can't do right all the time, even when I want to, makes the story of salvation make sense to me. In front of a Holy God, I need someone to take the rap for me. I need someone to bail me out.

That's when I really found God, and His love for me. When I finally admitted that I wasn't perfect, and that I couldn't measure up to this Holy and powerful God. The Bible says that if we confess our sins He will forgive us, and purify us from all unrightousness. Thus, there goes my guilt! I accept the sacrifice Jesus made for my sins, admit my weakness and ask for forgiveness, and accept His grace. In that process I have found that I become more like Jesus each day. It's slow at times, but the changes in my life for the better do happen.

That's just my experience Lewis, you'll make up your own mind. I would encourage you to "study" the Bible though, dig into it and ask God for understanding as you do. I recommend starting in the New Testament because the Old Testamnet can put you to sleep if you don't have a burning desire to ingest all you can of God's word, lol. Good luck buddy and I hope you find whatever you are looking for.

Ohh, one last thing. The USA might be the most "religious" nation, but that doesn't make it the most faithful to the truth. A lot of people walking around this country think they are Christians, their lives say otherwise.

Do Christians go through persecution in America ?

ELMIRA, NY — A man who had been arrested after praying in 2007 at a public park was suddenly arrested again last week by Elmira police while his case is still on appeal. The arrest of Julian Raven came suddenly on March 15 while he was at his office. According to his wife, police escorted him out of a court hearing Tuesday in handcuffs in front of his crying children to begin serving his 9-day jail sentence.

“Christians shouldn’t be punished for expressing their religious beliefs. It’s ridiculous to consider the act of peacefully exercising one’s faith in a public park to be ‘disorderly conduct’ worthy of a jail sentence,” said ADF Senior Legal Counsel Joel Oster. “We are surprised at how eager the city was to arrest Mr. Raven again in light of his appeal. Now he will serve time in jail; however, we will continue to aggressively pursue his appeal in court.”

How is your love towards your wife ?

The Sacrificial Quotient of Giving
Devotional thought from the messages of Adrian Rogers

Ephesians 5:25 - “Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave Himself for it.”

A little boy was looking through the family picture album, and he came to a picture of his mother when she was much younger. It was taken just after his parents had gotten married. The boy asked his father, “Is that when Mother came to work for us?” Does this ring true in your home? Let me set the record straight. The husband, if he loves his wife as Christ loves the church, is going to love his wife sacrificially. He is going to love her in such a way that he would be willing to lay down his life for her. He’s going to protect her. He’s going to provide for her. He’s going to do what he can to present his wife and family as holy vessels for the Lord’s use.

Are you married? Then how are you doing on the sacrificial quotient of giving to your spouse? If you had to, would you be willing to lay down your life for your spouse?

Do you know where your kids are ?

Devotional thought from the messages of Adrian Rogers

Proverbs 22:6 - “Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.”

The most dangerous thing on television today, in my estimation, is the sitcom. Do you know what they’re doing? They’re getting you to laugh at sin. In fact, a Christian television and film writer attended a producers’ workshop one day. One of the keynote speakers was one of TV’s most successful producers of sitcoms. In his address, he stated that in order to have a commercially successful production, the characters in a sitcom must violate at least three of the Ten Commandments. How tragic, but what an opportunity for people like you and me to take a stand for the truth and for the glory of God in the film and television industry.

Pray Joshua 1:7 for those who are in the television and movie industries — that they will be strong and courageous.

Who was St. Patrick ?

Little is known of Patrick's early life, though it is known that he was born in Roman Britain in the fifth century, into a wealthy Romano-British family. His father and grandfather were deacons in the Church. At the age of sixteen, he was kidnapped by Irish raiders and taken captive to Ireland as a slave.[1] It is believed he was held somewhere on the west coast of Ireland, possibly Mayo, but the exact location is unknown. According to his Confession, he was told by God in a dream to flee from captivity to the coast, where he would board a ship and return to Britain. Upon returning, he quickly joined the Church in Auxerre in Gaul and studied to be a priest.

In 432, he again says that he was called back to Ireland, though as a bishop, to save the Irish, and indeed he was successful at this, focusing on converting royalty and aristocracy as well as the poor. Irish folklore tells that one of his teaching methods included using the shamrock to explain the Holy Trinity (the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit) to the Irish people. After nearly thirty years of teaching and spreading God's Word he died on 17 March, 461 AD, and was buried at Downpatrick, so tradition says. Although there were other more successful missions to Ireland from Rome, Patrick endured as the principal champion of Irish Christianity and is held in esteem in the Irish Church.

We are free from the law

The Law of Life in Christ
Devotional thought from the messages of Adrian Rogers

Romans 8:2 - “For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.”

I’ve always found airplane flight amazing. Planes are so heavy, yet they fly! The pilot gets behind the controls, moves the throttle, those great engines begin to roar, and the first thing you know, you’re flying. Has the law of gravity been canceled? No, but there’s another law that comes into effect called the law of aerodynamics, which is greater than the law of gravity. When you get right with God, the law of sin and death is still there, but there’s a new law. It’s the law of life in Christ Jesus that sets you free from the law of sin and death. As long as you abide in Jesus Christ, then you are free from the law of sin and death.

Have you been set free? Then it’s your turn to set another captive free with the Good News. Go out and share this free gift with someone today.

Is Jesus your Lord and Savior ?

Jesus as Lord and Savior
Devotional thought from the messages of Adrian Rogers

Romans 10:9 - “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.”

Have you ever thought that salvation was like a cafeteria where you can pick and choose the aspects of Jesus you want?

“I’ll have a little Saviorhood, please, but no Lordship.”

Not so, friend. If Jesus is not your Lord, Jesus is not your Savior. What’s the difference? Well, suppose I perform a wedding ceremony and say to the young man, “Would you take Mary to be your lawfully wedded wife?” and he responds, “Well, I’ll take Mary as housekeeper.” Then I say to her, “Would you take John to be your lawfully wedded husband?” and she says, “Well, I’ll take him as provider.” Friend, we can’t pick and choose what we want from Jesus. We must take Jesus as Lord over all!

Is Jesus Christ Lord of every area of your life? Take time today to examine your life — your finances, your relationships, your hopes and dreams.

Where is our former God honoring country going now ?

When 7 million Californians cast their vote for marriage as the union of one man and one woman, they thought they had protected marriage once and for all. But the opposition filed a federal lawsuit - the Perry v. Schwarzenegger case - in an attempt to overturn the state's marriage amendment and nullify the votes of the people. If the court rules in favor of the opposition, this could have serious implications for marriage and religious freedom across America.

Let there be no misunderstanding about the fact that God's plan for marriage is under an all-out, full-scale attack by advocates of homosexual behavior and their like-minded supporters in local, state, and federal government. And it is not just marriage that is under attack. Anyone who supports marriage as the union of one man and one woman could become fair game for discrimination and punishment.

A Clean heart.....

Psalm 51:10 - “Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.”

After David had sinned and done a terrible thing by committing adultery, he said this in Psalm 51:3, “For I acknowledge my transgressions: and my sin is ever before me.” Can you imagine what it would be like for your sin to “ever” be before you? The deed would reverberate through your consciousness unendingly. You see, the conscience is an inner judge that God puts in you that accuses or excuses you. It cannot make you do right, but it shows you what is right or what is wrong. When your conscience is right, you have tremendous freedom. A good conscience will do something for you that a sleeping pill could never do.

What is your conscience “telling” you this morning? Are you right with God?

John MacArthur Explains True Gospel

Our Christian Presidents

Was there ever any Scientist who believed in God ?

Famous Scientists Who Believed in God
Belief in God
Is belief in the existence of God irrational? These days, many famous scientists are also strong proponents of atheism. However, in the past, and even today, many scientists believe that God exists and is responsible for what we see in nature. This is a small sampling of scientists who contributed to the development of modern science while believing in God. Although many people believe in a "God of the gaps", these scientists, and still others alive today, believe because of the evidence.

Rich Deem
1.Nicholas Copernicus (1473-1543)
Copernicus was the Polish astronomer who put forward the first mathematically based system of planets going around the sun. He attended various European universities, and became a Canon in the Catholic church in 1497. His new system was actually first presented in the Vatican gardens in 1533 before Pope Clement VII who approved, and urged Copernicus to publish it around this time. Copernicus was never under any threat of religious persecution - and was urged to publish both by Catholic Bishop Guise, Cardinal Schonberg, and the Protestant Professor George Rheticus. Copernicus referred sometimes to God in his works, and did not see his system as in conflict with the Bible.
2.Sir Francis Bacon (1561-1627)
Bacon was a philosopher who is known for establishing the scientific method of inquiry based on experimentation and inductive reasoning. In De Interpretatione Naturae Prooemium, Bacon established his goals as being the discovery of truth, service to his country, and service to the church. Although his work was based upon experimentation and reasoning, he rejected atheism as being the result of insufficient depth of philosophy, stating, "It is true, that a little philosophy inclineth man’s mind to atheism, but depth in philosophy bringeth men's minds about to religion; for while the mind of man looketh upon second causes scattered, it may sometimes rest in them, and go no further; but when it beholdeth the chain of them confederate, and linked together, it must needs fly to Providence and Deity." (Of Atheism)
3.Johannes Kepler (1571-1630)
Kepler was a brilliant mathematician and astronomer. He did early work on light, and established the laws of planetary motion about the sun. He also came close to reaching the Newtonian concept of universal gravity - well before Newton was born! His introduction of the idea of force in astronomy changed it radically in a modern direction. Kepler was an extremely sincere and pious Lutheran, whose works on astronomy contain writings about how space and the heavenly bodies represent the Trinity. Kepler suffered no persecution for his open avowal of the sun-centered system, and, indeed, was allowed as a Protestant to stay in Catholic Graz as a Professor (1595-1600) when other Protestants had been expelled!
4.Galileo Galilei (1564-1642)
Galileo is often remembered for his conflict with the Roman Catholic Church. His controversial work on the solar system was published in 1633. It had no proofs of a sun-centered system (Galileo's telescope discoveries did not indicate a moving earth) and his one "proof" based upon the tides was invalid. It ignored the correct elliptical orbits of planets published twenty five years earlier by Kepler. Since his work finished by putting the Pope's favorite argument in the mouth of the simpleton in the dialogue, the Pope (an old friend of Galileo's) was very offended. After the "trial" and being forbidden to teach the sun-centered system, Galileo did his most useful theoretical work, which was on dynamics. Galileo expressly said that the Bible cannot err, and saw his system as an alternate interpretation of the biblical texts.
5.Rene Descartes (1596-1650)
Descartes was a French mathematician, scientist and philosopher who has been called the father of modern philosophy. His school studies made him dissatisfied with previous philosophy: He had a deep religious faith as a Roman Catholic, which he retained to his dying day, along with a resolute, passionate desire to discover the truth. At the age of 24 he had a dream, and felt the vocational call to seek to bring knowledge together in one system of thought. His system began by asking what could be known if all else were doubted - suggesting the famous "I think therefore I am". Actually, it is often forgotten that the next step for Descartes was to establish the near certainty of the existence of God - for only if God both exists and would not want us to be deceived by our experiences - can we trust our senses and logical thought processes. God is, therefore, central to his whole philosophy. What he really wanted to see was that his philosophy be adopted as standard Roman Catholic teaching. Rene Descartes and Francis Bacon (1561-1626) are generally regarded as the key figures in the development of scientific methodology. Both had systems in which God was important, and both seem more devout than the average for their era.
6.Isaac Newton (1642-1727)
In optics, mechanics, and mathematics, Newton was a figure of undisputed genius and innovation. In all his science (including chemistry) he saw mathematics and numbers as central. What is less well known is that he was devoutly religious and saw numbers as involved in understanding God's plan for history from the Bible. He did a considerable work on biblical numerology, and, though aspects of his beliefs were not orthodox, he thought theology was very important. In his system of physics, God is essential to the nature and absoluteness of space. In Principia he stated, "The most beautiful system of the sun, planets, and comets, could only proceed from the counsel and dominion on an intelligent and powerful Being."
7.Robert Boyle (1791-1867)
One of the founders and key early members of the Royal Society, Boyle gave his name to "Boyle's Law" for gases, and also wrote an important work on chemistry. Encyclopedia Britannica says of him: "By his will he endowed a series of Boyle lectures, or sermons, which still continue, 'for proving the Christian religion against notorious infidels...' As a devout Protestant, Boyle took a special interest in promoting the Christian religion abroad, giving money to translate and publish the New Testament into Irish and Turkish. In 1690 he developed his theological views in The Christian Virtuoso, which he wrote to show that the study of nature was a central religious duty." Boyle wrote against atheists in his day (the notion that atheism is a modern invention is a myth), and was clearly much more devoutly Christian than the average in his era.
8.Michael Faraday (1791-1867)
Michael Faraday was the son of a blacksmith who became one of the greatest scientists of the 19th century. His work on electricity and magnetism not only revolutionized physics, but led to much of our lifestyles today, which depends on them (including computers and telephone lines and, so, web sites). Faraday was a devoutly Christian member of the Sandemanians, which significantly influenced him and strongly affected the way in which he approached and interpreted nature. Originating from Presbyterians, the Sandemanians rejected the idea of state churches, and tried to go back to a New Testament type of Christianity.
9.Gregor Mendel (1822-1884)
Mendel was the first to lay the mathematical foundations of genetics, in what came to be called "Mendelianism". He began his research in 1856 (three years before Darwin published his Origin of Species) in the garden of the Monastery in which he was a monk. Mendel was elected Abbot of his Monastery in 1868. His work remained comparatively unknown until the turn of the century, when a new generation of botanists began finding similar results and "rediscovered" him (though their ideas were not identical to his). An interesting point is that the 1860's was notable for formation of the X-Club, which was dedicated to lessening religious influences and propagating an image of "conflict" between science and religion. One sympathizer was Darwin's cousin Francis Galton, whose scientific interest was in genetics (a proponent of eugenics - selective breeding among humans to "improve" the stock). He was writing how the "priestly mind" was not conducive to science while, at around the same time, an Austrian monk was making the breakthrough in genetics. The rediscovery of the work of Mendel came too late to affect Galton's contribution.
10.William Thomson Kelvin (1824-1907)
Kelvin was foremost among the small group of British scientists who helped to lay the foundations of modern physics. His work covered many areas of physics, and he was said to have more letters after his name than anyone else in the Commonwealth, since he received numerous honorary degrees from European Universities, which recognized the value of his work. He was a very committed Christian, who was certainly more religious than the average for his era. Interestingly, his fellow physicists George Gabriel Stokes (1819-1903) and James Clerk Maxwell (1831-1879) were also men of deep Christian commitment, in an era when many were nominal, apathetic, or anti-Christian. The Encyclopedia Britannica says "Maxwell is regarded by most modern physicists as the scientist of the 19th century who had the greatest influence on 20th century physics; he is ranked with Sir Isaac Newton and Albert Einstein for the fundamental nature of his contributions." Lord Kelvin was an Old Earth creationist, who estimated the Earth's age to be somewhere between 20 million and 100 million years, with an upper limit at 500 million years based on cooling rates (a low estimate due to his lack of knowledge about radiogenic heating).
11.Max Planck (1858-1947)
Planck made many contributions to physics, but is best known for quantum theory, which revolutionized our understanding of the atomic and sub-atomic worlds. In his 1937 lecture "Religion and Naturwissenschaft," Planck expressed the view that God is everywhere present, and held that "the holiness of the unintelligible Godhead is conveyed by the holiness of symbols." Atheists, he thought, attach too much importance to what are merely symbols. Planck was a churchwarden from 1920 until his death, and believed in an almighty, all-knowing, beneficent God (though not necessarily a personal one). Both science and religion wage a "tireless battle against skepticism and dogmatism, against unbelief and superstition" with the goal "toward God!"
12.Albert Einstein (1879-1955)
Einstein is probably the best known and most highly revered scientist of the twentieth century, and is associated with major revolutions in our thinking about time, gravity, and the conversion of matter to energy (E=mc2). Although never coming to belief in a personal God, he recognized the impossibility of a non-created universe. The Encyclopedia Britannica says of him: "Firmly denying atheism, Einstein expressed a belief in "Spinoza's God who reveals himself in the harmony of what exists." This actually motivated his interest in science, as he once remarked to a young physicist: "I want to know how God created this world, I am not interested in this or that phenomenon, in the spectrum of this or that element. I want to know His thoughts, the rest are details." Einstein's famous epithet on the "uncertainty principle" was "God does not play dice" - and to him this was a real statement about a God in whom he believed. A famous saying of his was "Science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind."

Was John Quincy Adams a Christian ?

John Quincy Adams was born in Braintree, now Quincy, Massachusetts, the son of John Adams, the second President of the United States. On March 4th 1825, he was inaugurated as President and served one term. His inaugural address closed with these words:

“Knowing that ‘except the Lord keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain,’ with fervent supplications for His favor, to His overruling providence I commit, with humble, but fearless confidence, my own fate, and the future destinies of my country.”

Known as a great orator, he was a popular speaker in many places. He owed his influence, not to his manner, presence or pleasing tones, but to the fact that what he said was worth hearing. When it was feared that Christian influence was waning in New England, he prepared a lecture on Truth, which he delivered in many places. The premise was: “A man to be a Christian must believe in God, in the Bible, in the Divinity of the Savior’s mission, and in a future state of rewards and punishments.”

Adapted from American Christian Rulers, Rev. Edward J. Gidding (New York: Bromfield & Company, 1890) pp. 6-13.

Joy vs. Happiness..

Philippians 4:4 - “Rejoice in the Lord always: and again I say, Rejoice.”

Happiness comes from outside circumstances. Joy comes from within. It’s cruel to say to people who are in sorrow, “Smile and be happy.” It’s better to come alongside and mourn with them than to try to force the square peg of happiness into a round hole of sorrow. The human life is a life of tragedy, sorrow, heartache, and pain. Yet in every difficulty, you can find joy. Happiness is an outside job. Joy is an inside job.

There is someone in a nursing home who longs for that joy. Find some time this week to bring the joy of the Lord to them.

Obama Speech on Religion

Our President....has a lot to learn on Christianity....especially the Old Testament....

Church Fight

Jesus said turn the other other words, this Pastor should have been more Spiritually mature, and walked away from her.....then after...he still wanted to fight the husband "let him go"......We are ambassadors for Christ....unbelievers are watching.....

It's just one head....Christ Jesus.

Romans 12:5 - “So we, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another.”

My left hand is a member of my body. So is my right hand. The right hand cannot direct the left hand and vice versa. But both hands can receive instruction from the head. If one hand is connected to the head and the other hand is connected to the head, then it simply follows that our hands are going to submit one to another. They’re not going to fight one another.

It’s the same way in the Body of Christ — the church. Who is the head of the body? The Lord Jesus Christ. Who are the members of the body? You and I. God put us in the church together that we might have a spirit of submission in the fear of the Lord.

Is there someone in the church with whom you’re having difficulties? Submit yourself to the Lord and allow Him to give you grace to submit one to another.
