Waters above the Earth: "Canopy Theory" or Biblical Revelation of Reality?

We read Genesis One, verse one and we see that the fundamental reality of Scripture is that "In the Beginning God created the heavens and the earth."So is this the "creation theory"? OF COURSE NOT.So why do we talk about the work of Day Two as "Theory"?The work of day two is not a theory. It is a revelation from God in the infallible inspired Scripture. The scholarship and expertise in the Hebrew Language articulated by Dr. John C. Whitcomb has never been "debunked," nor has it ever been…See More

Profile Information

Are you a church leader? If so, please tell us if you are a pastor, deacon/elder, or work with youth, adults, etc.
Work in Curriculum Development. I love to do talks about creation in the role of either Noah or Shem. I think the picture is me as Shem in Guatemala...
Do you homeschool or send your children to a private Christian school?
No
Do you have your own blog, website, or ministry? If so, please share it with us.
no
Are you a student/teacher/professor? High School or College?
Always a student, but not in any school
Do you believe in the literal translation of Genesis?
Huh? The Bible should be translated in the sense of meaning intended by authors. This is an odd question. I believe the Bible is inspired and inerrant in all that it affirms. Parts of it are figurative and symbolic, not to be taken "literally." I have translated chapters 1 - 3 word by word ELEVEN TIMES. The message remains the same: Everything that exists (other than God), all things were brought into existence in JUST SIX days of Creation about Six Thousand years ago. I am not a YE creationist but I am a Six Day/6K creationist.
Describe your interest in joining the community
I am interested in conversing with people who believe in a recent (about 6000 years ago) creation in SIX DAYS OF ALL THINGS, visible and invisible. I want to converse with people who believe that science is subservient to Scripture

Your Own Psalm of the Word

Posted on December 23, 2015 at 3:39pm 1 Comment

Read through a few sections of Psalm 119. What is it all about?

It is about the psalmist's love for the Word of God. Nearly every single verse speaks of God's Revelation in the Scriptures under one of many different terms (Statutes, Precepts, Law, Testimonies, etc.)

It would be a good exercise to make a list of all these.

Then there are many declarations of the psalmist's attitudes toward the Word of God, his commitments to it, his desires and longings for it. And then…

Are We Alone?

Posted on August 26, 2015 at 11:00am 5 Comments

People of the earth seem to be so lonely and so full of angst about whether or not there is anyone else “out there.” Why did God create humans in the middle of a vast universe that seems to be empty? Why did God create humans with this God-sized void in our hearts?

The Search for Other…
