‘Sacred’ the Film

Georgia with her script
Georgia with her script

Recently I had the pleasure to meet and talk with a very passionate young Christian lady, Georgia, who has written a story called “Sacred“. It is a story about the sacredness of human life regardless of where it comes from or how it is conceived. She is so passionate about this she has thrown herself into it with other like-minded souls to make this full length feature film—a dramatised saga of the events in the life of young 16-year old girl called Jade. And Georgia, and her crew, are doing it on the back of the “smell of an oily rag.” All actors are trained actors but volunteers; the support staff are all volunteering their time. But they need support. These sort of films need money for non-labour costs that are only provisioned that way. I asked Georgia how she supports herself, and she said she works in MacDonald’s. Like the Apostle Paul she is ‘tent making’ but there are significant production costs.  It is a film designed to change lives—to change the culture.

Cancer in our society V: What would Muhammad do?

The question is often asked of Christians: What would Jesus do? This is often in hypothetical situations. It is often used frivolously, even in advertising. For example, this image (right) was used in a discussion on health insurance in the USA.

What would Jesus do for the uninsured?
What would Jesus do for the uninsured?

But often times this question is posed to trip up the believer with some difficult, or apparently difficult situation. Jesus himself was presented with many difficult problems by those who tried to trap him during His earthly ministry.

The adulterous woman
The adulterous woman

One such situation is the case of the woman caught in adultery (John 8:1-11).   The scribes and Pharisees brought a woman to him who was caught in the very act of adultery. (I don’t know why they didn’t bring the man also.) They challenged Jesus with:

Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what sayest thou?  This they said, tempting him, that they might have to accuse him. But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though he heard them not. (John 8:5,6)

Jesus knowing their hearts, he could see their sin, said:

… He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her. (John 8:7)

Evolution’s Achilles’ Heels, the Movie

I just watched this documentary. It is powerful. Buy it! You won’t be disappointed!

Promo here.

The movie has been available since October 20th 2015. Order it now. More Information

Creation Ministries International (CMI) undertook a major new offensive to take even more ground in the battle to proclaim the truth of the Bible. The aim was to simply and concisely expose evolution’s fatal weaknesses.

It culminated in 2014 with the completion of a milestone book, and a 96-minute DVD documentary, both called Evolution’s Achilles’ Heels.

The Achilles’ heels of evolution are often in the very areas widely considered to be impregnable strongholds of this belief system. These areas are the topics systematically covered in both the book and the documentary. They are:

  • Natural Selection
  • Genetics and DNA
  • The Origin of Life
  • The Fossil Record
  • The Geologic Record
  • Radiometric Dating
  • Cosmology
  • Ethics and Morality

We believe evolution theory has no answer to these weaknesses, once properly explained and understood. The book is like no other work that we are aware of, in that it is authored exclusively by nine Ph.D. scientists, including myself, to produce a coordinated, coherent, powerful argument. The documentary involves even more PhD scientists, 15 in all, and features striking footage and brilliant computer animations. All of these scientists received their doctorates from similar, secular universities as their evolutionary counterparts. Each is a specialist in various relevant fields.

The Lord will overcome

 IslamDominateSignBeard-vihate-speech-islam

The rise of Islam in the West

I see this as the Lord’s doing, the same way He sent the Babylonians to carry away Israel into captivity (Jeremiah 29:1-14) or the way He used the Assyrians (Isaiah 10:5)  to chastise Israel for her sins. This time the chastisement is to the Christian Church (spiritually Israel) and again to the chosen people, the Jews, wherever they may be. I believe the Lord  Jesus will come again and restore His assembly of believers, whether they be Jews or Gentiles. And the Lord will Himself judge those who disobey His laws and murder innocent people.

Evolution’s Achilles’ Heels, the Book

This has been a long time in the making! This powerful book exposes the fatal flaws of evolutionary thinking. Like no other work that I am aware of, it is authored by nine Ph.D. scientists, including myself, to produce a coordinated, coherent, powerful argument. All of the authors received their doctorates from similar secular universities as their evolutionary counterparts. Each is a specialist in a field relevant to the subject written about: Natural selection, origin of life, geology, genetics, radiometric dating, the fossil record, cosmology, and ethics.

Evolution’s Achilles’ Heels directly demolishes the very pillars of the belief system that underpins our now-secular culture—evolutionary naturalism. It’s coupled with the Biblical command to reach the lost with the Bible’s Good News. In a nutshell, it’s a comprehensive outreach tool like no other. Get a copy today. You won’t be disappointed.

The other eight Ph.D. scientists are Donald Batten, Robert Carter, David Catchpoole, Mark Harwood, Jim Mason, Jonathan Sarfati, Emil Silvestru and Tasman Walker. The foreword was authored by Carl Wieland and the book edited by Robert Carter.

Cancer in our society III: Lebanonisation of France

15% of the nation of France is now Muslim.  Currently we read of and see reports of racism against white French nationals, and for the first time since World War II an anti-Semitic pogrom. July 20th was also the anniversary of the “Vel d’Hiv Round-up”. This was the mass arrest of Jews in Paris in 1942 by the French police under the supervision of the Nazis. Kristallnacht “Crystal Night” was the night of November 9–10, 1938, when German Nazis attacked Jewish persons and property. Is this happening again?

Cancer in our society II: Sex in Islam

Ann Barnhardt speaking before the Colorado Patriots. VIEWER DISCRETION: Subject not for children.

Pedophilia, incest, bestiality, temporary marriages (prostitution) are accepted ‘legal’ practices in Islam. She speaks of the genetic damage done in the Islamic community because they marry such close relatives–cousins, even first cousins marrying first cousins. This then leads to a very high probability of passing of genetic defects (mutations) that have come from the grandparents, since both cousins would share the same grandparents.

The Nephilim problem?

The word ‘Nephilim’ is found in the Old Testament Bible and some have suggested that their existence before the global Flood in Noah’s day was the reason God sent it to destroy all air-breathing life (nephesh chayyah) on the surface of the Earth. Certainly there is both biblical and archaeological evidence that giants, giant-sized people, have existed, but was there really ever a Nephilim problem? Could it be that that was at least part of the reason God sent the Flood?

Nephilim-1There is much written about this controversial subject, for example, in books,and on the web2-5 as well as online video discussions and documentaries6 and articles proposing that certain elongated ancient skulls are from the Nephilim.7  Some articles refer to a Nephilim problem and that “part of the reason for God sending the Flood was to stop the Nephilim problem”.5 But was there really a Nephilim problem at all?

The word Nephilim is derived from the Hebrew word נְפִיל/נְפִל nphiyl (nef-eel’), which appears in Genesis 6:4;

There were giants [nphiylim] in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown. KJB (= King James Bible)

Various versions translate this as ‘giants,’ or not at all, leaving the untranslated Hebrew word, where the ending ‘im’ indicates it is plural;

The Nephilim were on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of man and they bore children to them. These were the mighty men who were of old, the men of renown.  ESV (=English Standard Version)  ESV endnote #: giants.

Why believe in God in an Age of Science?

photo--lecture1 at UoA

The following is a brief summary of a lecture I presented (picture above) at the University of Adelaide on April 4th 2014. This event  was co-sponsored by an Adelaide church which put up posters around the university the week before. About 50 students and staff attended the lecture which took place within the less-than-Christian-friendly philosophical and ideological environment of this typical Western university. From this picture (below right) of posters  you can see this is a climate where, for example, Marxism is promoted despite the fact that the ideology caused the deaths of 100 million humans in the 20th century alone.

The delusion of evolution

The Apostle Paul warned the young disciple Timothy to stay diligent to study and understand the Word of God and not to be deluded by the heresies in the day he lived.

O Timothy, keep that which is committed to thy trust, avoiding profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so called: Which some professing have erred concerning the faith. Grace be with thee. Amen. 1 Timothy 6:20,21

The word translated ‘science’ here is γνῶσις gnosis in the Greek text. It means knowing or knowledge. The warning is against that false knowledge—gnosticism.  Gnosticism was the predominant source of heresy when the New Testament was written.
