Replying to Atheist's Question: sex in heaven?

Had a long talk with an Atheist friend of mine.  Now, I can handle all of the creation, evolution, science, facts/assumptions, etc apologetics.  I can handle most of the theology.  But He stumped me.…Continue

Greetings!

I have greatly been looking for something like this and am excited to have found it. A little about me.

First, I grew up a "Christian". Though I considered myself a Christian before, I believed in a Theistic Evolution. My resulting "faith" that I called "Christian" was anything but Christian; all the names were the same, but non of the teachings. I could pretty much do as I wanted. I grew so sick of creationists who couldn't answer a single question I proposed, that I decided to research evolution in depth so instead of simply asking questions the Creationist couldn't answer (or at least the ones I had been arguing with), I would have the smoking gun to quiet them for good. After all science had proven evolution, right? So it had to be there, right? It took a few years, but finally God showed me it was myself who was wrong and not Him.

I now am a devoted Creationist. No, actually, that isn't quite correct. I am a devoted Biblical Literalist meaning except where the Scriptures are obviously not speaking literally (ie parables or "(fill in the blank) is like..."), I take God at His Word and believe what He says. To paraphrase Martin Luther, even if I don't totally understand it, I acknowledge that God is more learned than I.

I have been praying for years to either be a part of a full-time ministry or preferably, to start my own. My idea is a Family and child oriented play place where kids can run, play, climb, jump and crawl through activities, but all with a Christian and dinosaur theme. It will also have a hands-on area where they can learn about creation and hear the things they are not taught in school on evolution. You can see more, as well as read several articles that I have written and a scale model of the ark of Noah that I constructed on my webpage: http://www.HaveYouNotRead.com

I also have a blog at http://youdonthavetohaveaphd.blogspot.com/ which attempts to explain the reasons why evolution doesn't fit the evidence in simple to understand terms. Some people simply acquiesce to the scientist because, well, they are scientists. I attempt to show that science is not that difficult and anyone can understand enough of the basics to be able to think for themselves.

Finally, I have also written a book. It is a Christmas devotional for the 25 days of December that lead up to Christmas. Each day's devotional is based off of a popular Christmas carol and presents each song in a new light that shines the glory on God and the true meaning of Christmas. It is titled, "Let Heaven and Nature Sing' and you can find it here: http://tinyurl.com/LetHeavenAndNatureSing.

In His service... Arthur Smith

Oh, as a P.S., for something fun about me, I have the strangest hobby. I am also a jousting "knight" at Renaissance Faires and other events. Yes, I fall off a Clydesdale for fun (Okay, its really the reaction of the kids that make it fun...). You can see "Sir Arthur" at www.joustevolution.net.

I recently watched a DVD by Carl Kerby. In it he said that he and his

son play a game with movies and TV shows they call 'Spot the

Evolution". Whenever you watch Movies and TV, make it a game to find

the bits of 'evolution' in them. Then post them here: The Spot the Evolution Game…

Welcome Arthur, I will look forward to exploring your sites you have listed, and getting to know you. I especially like your goal of reaching children/youth with the Creation Message. Our church is looking for a youth pastor, and I have been praying that God will send someone with a burden for the Creation message. I have been conversing with two atheists on Eric Hovind's facebook and you could be a big help to me and others since you were an evolutionist at one time. Thanks for joining. God bless. I will be praying for you.
