It is ironic that a generation that boasts of the progress of science without God, is going backwards. It is de-evolving. The boast that Godless science is making us live longer, just isn’t true. Studies from the Dutch National Institute for Public Health and the Environment have discovered that "today's adults are so unhealthy they are 15 years 'older' than their parents and grandparents at the same age." According to a study published in the European Journal of Preventive Cardiology, researchers say that they are "more likely to suffer from high blood pressure, diabetes and obesity than previous generations because of poor health."

So PZ, you were of course “selectively edited” (as was every person in the movie), but I have to protest when you accuse me of misrepresenting you. That would show a lack of integrity on my part and a disregard for our friendship. I really enjoyed meeting you. It really was an honor, and I would gladly enjoy a meal with you any time you are back in Southern California (at my expense, of course). PZ kindly posted the promo on his page.

"As life inevitably takes each of us through sufferings similar to that of Job, we will no doubt have similar questions to those Job asked -- Where is God in all this? Why doesn't He deliver me? God Speaks gives answers and with those answers will come much needed comfort." - Kirk Cameron

We went to evolution’s experts and spoke personally with evolutionary scientists from some of the world’s leading universities (no creationist interviews were used).
Featuring personal interviews with:
Professor Peter Nonacs, UCLA Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology
Professor Craig Stanford, USC Biological Sciences and Anthropology
PZ Myers, Biologist, University of Minnesota Morris
Gail E. Kennedy, Associate Professor (Ph.D.) UCLA Department of Anthropology
What they revealed will stun you. Plus perspectives from Einstein, Dawkins, Krauss, Isaac Newton, and many more. We want to educate about evolution. Prepare to have your faith shaken.

- Producer and script writer Paul LaLonde, who was behind the previous Left Behind films, said: “This is a much bigger movie a much bigger investment — we are certainly aiming this time to have more of a crossover movie . . . When we did the first ‘Left Behind, it was never an outreach. It was made by Christians for Christians … there was never an idea that we’re going to put this in the cineplex next to ‘Spiderman’ and compete for the same audience.”
- To hit theaters Spring of 2014
- It will initially open up on at least 1,200 screens
Galileo wasn’t an atheist. When the Roman Catholic church confined him to house arrest, he protested “I do not feel obliged to believe that the same God who has endowed us with sense, reason, and intellect has intended us to forgo their use.” Also, everyone (including scientists) believed that the earth was flat (except the theist, Christopher Columbus). And don’t forget that the men who landed on the moon read Genesis chapter one from space, and just before the landing they took communion and thanked God for sending a Savior.

When a hawk is around, other birds hide for fear of their lives leaving an eerie silence in the trees. They instinctively know their enemy. It seems that a bird brain works better than a human brain, because most human beings don’t see death as their enemy. They think that it’s just part of life. But around death, the ungodly have an eerie silence. They don’t fight it. They roll over and get ready to die. Riding high in April, shot down in May. That’s life. But the Bible speaks of death as an enemy, saying that Jesus Christ has “abolished death and brought life and immortality to light through the gospel.” Of course, many don’t believe that, and that’s their problem. They refuse to trust the Word of God, and yet trust is the basis for any relationship, both horizontal and vertical.
An atheist is like a man who shuts off the main electric source before he walks into an electrical store, and mocks the fact that the appliances don't work. Remove the supernatural from the Bible and nothing makes sense, because you have removed the power of God. Leave Him in the equation and animals fit comfortably onto the ark, the Red Sea opens without any problem, the 5,000 get well fed, water gets walked upon, and stopping a storm with “Peace be still” is a breeze.

Skeptics mock the thought that the existence of God can be proved scientifically. But the word “science” simply means “knowledge.” Creation (Nature) gives us knowledge that there's a Creator (a Maker). It is scientifically impossible for Nature to have made itself. To say that it did, is to say that it was pre-existent to be able to make itself, before it made itself, which is ludicrous. So each of us has an intuitive knowledge that God exists, and because of our conscience (“con” is “with” and “science” is “knowledge”) we are “with knowledge” that we are morally responsible to Him. The building gives us knowledge there was a builder. The painting gives us knowledge there was a painter.
Of course, buildings and paintings are inorganic (non-living) and so are great mountains, vast oceans, and the massive clouds—“The heavens declare His glory.” However, the existence of living forms (including ourselves) gives us even more light into the genius of God’s creative hand—that we are “fearfully and wonderfully made,” so that we are without excuse. No one needs faith to know that God exists. All we need are eyes that can see and a brain that works. However, if we want to approach Him, then we must have trust, for without an implicit trust it is impossible to please Him (see Hebrews 11:6).

This is a popular atheist poster on which are Ernest Hemmingway, Abraham Lincoln, Carl Sagan, Mark Twain, Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklyn, Albert Einstein, and Charles Darwin along with the words “Atheism Good enough for these idiots.” Clearly, atheism is for intellectuals.
But one moment…Abraham Lincoln wasn’t an atheist. He said “Sir, my concern is not whether God is on our side; my greatest concern is to be on God's side, for God is always right.” Neither was Carl Sagan. He clearly stated, “I’m an agnostic.” Mark Twain hated religion, but he certainly wasn’t an atheist, saying, “None of us can be as great as God, but any of us can be as good.” Benjamin Franklin said, “God governs in the affairs of men.” You will find Thomas Edison listed on "Celebrity Atheists," on “Positive Atheism” and other atheist websites, but wasn’t an atheist. He said, “There is a great directing head of people and things — a Supreme Being who looks after the destinies of the world.” Thomas Jefferson said, "Say nothing of my religion. It is known to myself and my God alone.” Albert Einstein rejected the Bible as the Word of God, and said that the Creator was unknowable—and that God being personal was “childlike.” He lamented, “In view of such harmony in the cosmos which I, with my limited human understanding, am able to recognize, there are yet people who say there is no God. But what really makes me angry is that they quote me for the support of such views.” He categorically said, “I am not an atheist,” and when referring to those who deny the Creator, he used the term “fanatical atheists.” And Charles Darwin spoke of God seven times in Origin of Species.
So, out of the eight famous men on the poster, there is only one who was an atheist—Ernest Hemmingway. According to his biographer, back in 1961 Hemmingway "pushed two shells into the twelve-gauge Boss shotgun ...put the end of the barrel into his mouth, pulled the trigger and blew out his brains." There’s your poster-boy when it comes to atheism.

Ten Ways To Break The Stronghold of Pornography
by Ray Comfort
- Take some pornography to church and look at it during worship. You may as well; because God is just as present in your bedroom as He is in a building we call a "church."
- Face the fact that you may not be saved. The Bible speaks of false apostles, false teachers, false prophets, false brethren and false conversion (see Mark 4:1-20).
- Come to the realization that when you give yourself to pornography, you are committing adultery (see Matthew 5:27-28).
- Grasp the serious nature of your sin. Jesus said that it would be better for you to be blind and go to Heaven than to allow your eye to be offended, and end up in Hell (see Matthew 5:29).
- Those who profess to be Christians yet give themselves to pornographic material evidently lack the fear of God (Proverbs 16:6). Cultivate the fear of God by reading Proverbs 2:1-5.
- Open your Bible at Psalm 51 and make it your own prayer.
- Memorize James 1:14 and 1 Corinthians 10:13 and quote them when you are tempted.
- Make no provision for your flesh (see Romans 13:14). If you can't control yourself, you have to then get rid of every access to pornographic material--the Internet, printed literature, TV, videos and movies. Stop feeding the fire.
- Guard your heart with all diligence (see Proverbs 4:23). Don't let the demonic realm have access to your thought-life. If you give yourself to it, you will become its slave (see Romans 6:16). Read the Bible daily, without fail. Quote the Word of God when you are tempted (see Ephesians 6:12-20).
- The next time temptation comes, do fifty push-ups, then fifty sit-ups. If you are still burning, repeat the process (see 1 Corinthians 9:27, and 1 Corinthians 7:9).
Notice that Richard said “Belief” in the theory of evolution. That’s faith. He “trusts” that what he is seeing in the evidence is true. Then he says that the belief “relies on.” That’s “faith” again. Belief in evolution relies on (trusts in) what he believes are discernible facts. These facts are believed by him. He has faith in them. Then he says that I don’t believe the facts in which he trusts (in which he has faith), and he is right. I don’t have faith in them because I don’t want a belief. I want observable evidence that doesn’t need faith, and evolution rests entirely on the faith of the believer. Richard believes. I don’t.
Normally, someone believing in something is no big deal, because they are free to believe in anything they want. However, having a misguided faith in Darwinian evolution (not dogs evolving into dogs or bacteria becoming bacteria—which is not Darwinian evolution) is causing many to reject the truth of the observable Genesis account and the consequent offer of everlasting life through the gospel. That is a tragedy beyond words.
What we see in Genesis is observable in the existing creation and in the fossil record. We observe (see) male and female as well as every animal bring forth after its kind, throughout nature. Creationism is observable without the need for faith. Evolution is unobservable and needs great faith.

WWPZD? Atheist training from well-known atheist, PZ Myers: “I lack belief in gods.” (Part One)
“Boy, I really do hate these guys. You've got a discussion going, talking about why you’re an atheist, or what atheism should mean to the community, or some such topic that is dealing with our ideas and society, and some smug $@!#* comes along and announces that ‘Atheism means you lack a belief in gods. Nothing more. Quit trying to add meaning to the term.’ As if atheism can only be some platonic ideal floating in virtual space with no connections to anything else; as if atheists are people who have attained a Zen-like ideal, their minds a void, containing nothing but atheism, which itself is nothing. $@!#*.”
PZ Myers says, “I have heard this so often, the hair-splitting grammatical distinctions some atheists think so seriously important in defining themselves. All you’re doing is defining yourselves as #$%!@ retentive freaks, people! Get over it. Either way, you’re an atheist — and that goes for the over-philosophized fussbudgets who insist that they’re agnostics, not atheists, because they aren’t 100% positive there aren’t any gods, only 99 44/100ths positive.”

debunked: As a Christian I Don't Need to Talk About Jesus (I just need to live a good life)
(Email from Eric) "I've watched many of the street preaching videos and was wondering if you have a video or literature that goes through the process, from start to finish, of doing street preaching. I know there's preparation before, during, and after someone is one the box, and that there are more people than just those that get on the box, but what does a typical setup look like?"
A few recommendations:
- Season 4 – Of all of our season, it has the most emphasis on Open-Air, with tips throughout and many Open-Air examples. The “Paris” episode has a great how-to example. It shows an open-air with Ray from drawing the crowd straight to the finish.
- YouTube – We have a whole playlist entitled, “Open-Air” (seehttp://www.youtube.com/thewayofthemaster)
- Open Air Preaching: New York - It’s only available as “Download” section of our online store.

I love your blog and Way of the Master since I have let Jesus into my heart 3 years ago. This post has reminded me about something that has been troubling me greatly. I was raised by my mother, who was Jewish for her whole life. I have presented the Good News to her in person, and left some tracts from Living Waters, but she has always rejected the message of Salvation. Tragically, she passed away in April of this year, and I fear that she did not accept Jesus into her heart. I am tormented by the thought of her suffering.
How can I be assured if she had accepted Jesus at the end?
However, I leave the issue entirely in the hands of God. I trust Him implicitly...and evidence of that trust is my joy. There are two reasons I trust Him with my Mom. The first is that I should trust God in it, because He is the One who gave her life, the One who loves her more than I do/did, and the One who saves any human being. The second reason for leaving the issue entirely in the hands of God is that all the worry, fretting, concern in the world isn't going the help in the slightest. Jesus said, "Let not your heart be trouble," so don't let it be troubled. Don't be tormented either, just give it all to God and rejoice in Him. Charles Spurgeon said, "Faith me swim, where reason may only paddle."
