Good morning friends,

Here is a random quote (of over 2500) from Nuggets:

Men do not reject the Bible because it contradicts itself, but because it contradicts them. – E. Paul Hovey

  1. Privileged Species featuring Dr. Michael Denton – YouTube – Privileged Species is a 33-minute documentary by Discovery Institute that explores growing evidence from physics, chemistry, biology, and related fields that our universe was designed for large multi-cellular beings like ourselves. Featuring geneticist and author Michael Denton, the documentary investigates the special properties of carbon, water, and oxygen that make human life and the life of other organisms possible, and it explores some of the unique features of humans that make us a truly privileged species.: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VoI2ms5UHWg

  3. Old-Earth Creationism on Trial by Tim Chaffey, Jason Lisle – Audiobook – Audible.com – I would recommend you listen to this book with an open mind.  It addresses the debate of Old Earth vs. Young Earth in the same way that a court trial is handled with prosecution, defense and cross-examination, which I think is a fair way to handle it.  Here is the book summary from the publisher:  As the modern church struggles to find a place of relevancy for a new generation that already has massive demands on its time and attention, more and more young people raised in the church are leaving it – failing to find the answers to their questions of faith and life, beset with doubts raised by issues that the church chooses not to address. Opting to skirt the controversy of Genesis as literal history, the biblical authority of the Holy Word is called into question and reduced to a collection of mere stories. More popularly considered an issue for schools or in the public realm, the conflicting views on the age of the earth also remain a pivotal issue within the church – as it has for over two centuries. Was the Creation week literally six days? Does science really point to an old earth? Does the issue really matter for Christians? Should this issue even be discussed within the church? Join authors Dr. Jason Lisle and Tim Chaffey as they put forth a case against an old-earth interpretation of Scripture. A comprehensive biblical, theological, and scientific critique of old-earth creationism, the book presents its compelling testimony in layman’s terms to create a powerful debate that leads to unquestionable truth.: https://www.audible.com/pd/1982696982?source_code=ASSOR150021921000R

  7. Review of Avatar The Way of Water, director James Cameron – There is a fundamental difference between the pantheistic worldview portrayed in this film, and that of biblical Christianity.

  11. Is the Bible a Fairy Tale? The Bible does not qualify as a fairy tale. What remains is the underlying question, can it really be what it claims to be? It is only in the Bible that the answer becomes crystal clear not as a fictional work, but as Gods Word.: https://www.christianity.com/wiki/bible/is-the-bible-a-fairy-tale.html
