Teaching Creation

Secular scientists reject the Creator and the testimony of his Word, much like Charles Darwin who rejected God and believed that “deity” was the mind of man.

Today most schools teach the theory of evolution and reject the concepts of intelligent design or creation. Our society has accepted Darwin’s theory of evolution in spite of scientific and mathematical evidence that evolution is just that, a theory. It is mathematically impossible for natural selection and mutation to evolve into the complex systems that exist in our universe. The existence of complexity is evidence of God and creation. “Lift up your eyes on high, and behold who hath created these things, that bringeth out their host by number: He calleth them all by name by the greatness of His might, for that He is strong in power; not one faileth” (Isaiah 40:26).

Why would our educational system want to reject science and fact to teach a lie? It is because our nation is worshiping the “deity” of Darwin—SELF. According to a 2009 Gallup poll fewer than 50% of Americans believed in evolution. Yet we are too busy seeking our own will, pleasure, and ideas to zero-in on what is being taught in our schools or the impact it will have on our future.

Right now America is seeing Romans 1:18-32 become a reality:

“The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people, who suppress the truth by their wickedness, since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature— have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.

“For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like a mortal human being and birds and animals and reptiles.

“Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen.

“Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones. In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error.

“Furthermore, just as they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, so God gave them over to a depraved mind, so that they do what ought not to be done. They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed, and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, and malice. They are gossips, slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant, and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents; they have no understanding, no fidelity, no love, no mercy. Although they know God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them” (NIV).

To avoid succumbing to the world around us we must be vigilant in teaching our youth about the Creator God. We must educate ourselves so we can educate them. There are many websites such as The Institute for Creation Research, www.icr.org and the Creation Evidence Museum of Texas, www.creationevidence.org that contain considerable information that can help you teach yourself, your children, and others. CEM also provides YEA lessons that cover creation—go to www.borntowin.net to find out more or call us at 1-888-242-5344. This year during the 2014 Feast of Tabernacles CEM has the opportunity to tour The Creation Evidence Museum of Texas. This museum is a 501(c)3 non-profit, educational museum that provides scientific evidence of creation to thousands of people each year. Every year, new artifacts and documents are added to the museum’s collection and their focus is to:

  • Provide a creation science message opposing the evolutionary theory.
  • Educate children about the scientific and biblical principles of our earth, as opposed to the evolutionary theory that is taught in the public school system.
  • Lead efforts to introduce new and exciting evidences further proving God’s design.

CEM’s tour during the Feast of Tabernacles will be led by Dr. Carl Baugh, the founder and director of the museum and a renowned scientist and educator. He is an international lecturer and has appeared on the CBS TV Network Specials: The Incredible Discovery of Noah’s Ark and Ancient Secrets in the Bible. He has also appeared on the NBC TV Network Special: Mysterious Origins of Man. This is an opportunity of a lifetime for you and your children. This alone, is reason enough for you and your family to attend CEM’s Feast in Granbury, Texas. You can see scientific evidence of the creation and also see a replica of Noah’s Ark and hear the science behind it straight from Dr. Baugh. It will fortify your faith!

Other activities and projects at this year’s Feast will focus on creation evidence such as a visit to Dinosaur Valley State Park to see actual dinosaur footprints. We will also be reinforcing creation with YEA Feast lessons and seminars. Join us for an exciting and educational Feast of Tabernacles in Granbury, Texas. Call me, 1-888-242-5344, for additional information or check out cemfot.com. Don’t miss this fabulous opportunity. See you in Granbury!
