Entropy, Adam and Eve, Seth’s sisters, genetics and in-breeding

October 2, 2011

n-breeding was not a problem for the sons and daughters of Adam and Eve. From the Law of Entropy and the knowledge that today all species incorporate some “genetic defects” within, products of mutation, and from the knowledge that Adam and Eve were “very good” creations, perfect in fact, directly fashioned by God, inbreeding was not a problem for the first generations, neither for the grandchildren of Noah.

Besides which, the genome is built by God with mechanisms for adaptation to changing conditions, including great numbers of “spare parts” –which used to be called “junk DNA” by the clueless arrogant smarter-than-thou Darwinian pagans.
That’s right, many superstitious tribes of Old Testament times also believed of a stock “Thou art my father”, and of a stone, “Thou hast brought me forth”.
Read Jeremiah 2:27, it’s right there.

ID, Creationism, Religion and Science

August 17, 2010

Newspeak dictionaries put out by the Propaganda Ministry of Big Brother try to paint ID as creationism, but of course they know that it’s not the same thing any more than SETI is just a way to sneak UFO abductions into mainstream science. Not that mainstream science shuns all craziness, and not that there’s anything wrong with creationism!

> Religion and Science used to be bedfellows in past centuries and many of the scientist expressed a belief in a supreme being and many identified themselves as Christians but times have changed and Science and Religion got divorced and Science married Politics and Religion has tried to be Scientific with not good results, at least in today’s climate of controversy…

“Religion” is a word used today with a meaning that is mixed up with the word “Organized Religion”. It was the organized form the US Founding Fathers had in mind with the word in the First Amendment. This, in spite of the fact that some of them, the minority of them, had a more personal view. And even those made a point of frequent church attendance, being Christians.

But true Bible believers should rejoice that that the Bible, is “not a science textbook”.

“Consensus” (unproven) science, has been knocked down hundreds, even thousands of times, by actual discoveries and real-world experimental results that use the real-world scientific method. And yet blind-faith followers acting like herds of buffalo keep picking up “consensus” and trying to make it look like it has some magical quality of truth to it.

> I think ID is an attempt to get Christianity back into the public schools…

Government child indoctrination centers (aka “public schools”) have made mincemeat of children’s brains the last century or so, and not just in areas that relate to Creation and Intelligent Design. In the US alone, the primary-school level McDuffy readers of 1915 (I have read parts of some of them) would humiliate Harvard grads of today.

The campaigns for “public schools” was driven –is driven– by forces that want an easily manipulated same-thinking population.

Faith in anything other than the almighty state is anathema to the plutocrats, and generates independent-minded thinkers. The only opiate that plutocrat Marxists will allow is their own pie-in-the-sky promises with which they fool the “public”, up until they take power and consolidate it, at which time they don’t care what you think.

That’s why the battleground fro freedom is shaping up to be the Internet itself. The American administration (both faces of the political duopoly), along with all the other national administrations, is collaborating in the development of strategies to bring it under control. They have only allowed it to get a network medium established that addicts the important elements of the populations. (They don’t think much of the unconnected poor).

THEY HATE VOUCHERS

That’s why they hate school vouchers, but they hate tax credits even more. They despise the idea of letting parents have any more control over their children’s education and future than the parents already have. In fact it interferes with their strategies to displace the parents’ role in the formation of new generations.

It is not just Christians who should be reacting with fury against the takeover of their children’s lives by the state, and indeed, there are many others. Misguided anarchists are one group, but there are even-minded atheists and people of other persuasions who are disgusted with the academic neglect of official institutions. Some of them even add one plus one and get two when they realize that the official government neglect of education in their turf is deliberate.

It’s a good thing we can know that even though they may build up their global dictatorship infrastructure to prepare for the Beast and his tyranny, he will have massive opposition from many different sectors of the body politic, not just the Christians who knew what was coming. And it’s a good thing that before he can totally destroy the world, Jesus will be coming back to put a stop to the madness.

–and be not overcome with bitterness.–

(Pre-script: I thought of this missionary at an orphanage in Honduras raising some 22 children with a bit of help from such people as some of the readers of this blog, and shared the story with him, but it is a good story with a lesson for all of us..)

I just got back from a meeting with some of the local missionaries I worked with before and with whom I fellowship regularly, and one told a most inspiring testimony related to your own labor of love.

A Swedish couple in the 1920s or so went to what was then the Belgian Congo as missionaries, inspired to do work for the Lord, and arrived at a missionary center there. After awhile they joined another couple to go deeper into the country, and they found a certain tribe they felt led to.

But the chief told them they had their own gods, and didn’t want them coming in and offending his gods, so they settled a short ways outside that village and built their own little mud hut. The chief only let one little boy visit them to sell them food and wares.

The other couple quickly tired, seeing no opening to witness, but the Swedish wife witnessed faithfully to that boy over time and eventually led him to receive Christ as Lord and Saviour. Meantime, she had been stricken with malaria and other diseases, and then she was pregnant.

The chief allowed a midwife to help with the birth, but some twenty days later the wife died.

The husband was heartbroken and became very bitter, and became very angry at God. After giving up everything to go to a primitive place, after sticking it out, faithfully, and only one child as fruit, and now my wife has died, he told God. So angry was he that he left, he gave up the baby girl to a couple from America, and went back to Sweden.

That girl grew up in the States, the couple avoiding international travel for her sake, and after living in a few different places, found herself in Seattle, knowing from youth that she was born of, or adopted from, Swedish parents.

Although she did not know any Swedish at all, one day in the mail came a mailing like a newsletter completely in Swedish! She leafed through it and found her eyes gazing at a picture of a gravestone with her (Swedish) mother’s name on it!

The translator she found told her the article was about how that boy, led to the Lord and taught how to read and write by the couple, had gone back to the village and began leading other children to receive Jesus. Those children began telling their parents about this gospel and they began getting saved, and finally the whole village was a shining light on a hill.

The boy growing up began visiting other fledgling congregations in the area and helping them grow, and witness to their neighbors and eventually the gospel changed the whole nation. All from the witness of that one boy.

The daughter, now grown, decided to seek out the father in Sweden. He had remarried and had several grown children there. They told her it would do him good to see her but not to mention God at all because he always got angry at every mention. But she told him anyway, and told him the story, and his last week was a much happier one at knowing it was not in vain.

Every little seed you plant in those kids’ hearts is a big deal to them, infancy to even past teenage years. You have made them your life, and it is an investment that will pay eternal dividends no matter what. Don’t let the devil discourage you, just pour your heart into them, pour the truth into them, pour the love of God in Christ Jesus and the living word of God into them, and you will change Honduras, you will change the world.

What the Bible says about Theology Degrees

May 5, 2010

Seen on the ChristianWorldview yahoo group, an article apparently written by one David Martyn Lloyd-Jones on “The Unsearchable Riches of Christ—Studies in Ephesians”. He is apparently opposed to theology degrees for Christians.

Paul had more degrees from the Sanhedrin than you could count, but he counted it all DUNG to “win Christ”. Yes, I shouted that. Christians often seem deaf to it otherwise.

John 7:15 And the Jews marvelled, saying, How knoweth this man letters, having never learned?

Philippians 3:8 Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ,

Acts 4:13 Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men, they marvelled; and they took knowledge of them, that they had been with Jesus.

You get out there and obey and witness and study these things to show thyself approved, it’s the best way to learn the stuff.

And here’s a good tip if you really really want to learn your stuff. Seek out the guy who actually makes a ministry of witnessing, it’s usually two or three or four in a church, if it’s a “good” church, and they carry gospel tracts and literature around. They’ll be the ones who are considered maybe a little funny or awkward by the rest of them.

And then go with them and watch them and help them and accept their mentoring. It’s not just inviting them to church…

Mark 6:7 ¶And he called unto him the twelve, and began to send them forth by two and two; and gave them power over unclean spirits;

Little Christian school out-debates them all, again

Homeschool haven Patrick Henry College tops Harvard and other colleges:

See this link:

Just 10 years old, 350-student Patrick Henry College won its fourth national debate championship in six years.

The Virginia evangelical Christian school, founded by the leading Christian homeschool organization, is the only college or university to win the American Collegiate Moot Court Association national championship more than once.

Other schools competing included Harvard, Miami, Syracuse, Holy Cross, the College of Wooster and Fitchburg State College.

PHC, in Purcellville, Va., near Washington, D.C., sent the maximum number of eight teams to the 64-team competition at Florida International University College of Law in Miami and placed first, third, ninth, 11th, 13th and 17th.
