    Is American on the Brink of Disaster?

    We’ve become a country divided. Political Chaos. Racial Tensions. Global Terrorism. “Fake News.” What does the future hold for our country?

    A country founded on spiritual principles, America has minimized the importance of God and Christian values. According to the Bible, a nation that denies and defies God will ultimately suffer His judgment. (Gen. 12:3)

    In The End of America?: Bible Prophecy and a Country in Crisis from author and theologian Jeff Kinley, Jeff explores the rapid decline of America as a Christian nation, God’s prophetic plan for America, and the Christian’s responsibility to our great nation. READ MORE...

    Cosmo Hurts Kids Campaign Fights To Protect Children

    Victoria Hearst’s Cosmo Hurts Kids campaign fights to protect children from the mag’s harmful pornographic messages. Granddaughter of publishing titan William Randolph Hearst is making her own mark in the magazine world by taking on COSMOPOLITAN’s adult content.

    Miss Victoria Hearst is making news by actively fighting against the magazine that was the flagship of her famous grandfather’s publishing empire. Miss Hearst insists that the messages displayed on the cover and in the pages of Cosmopolitan are damaging to children, and that the Cosmo of today bears NO resemblance to the wholesome family magazine her grandfather purchased in 1905. Victoria isn’t the only one who is concerned about Cosmo’s harmful effects. The American Psychological Association contends that sexualization has significant negative mental health consequences for underage girls. READ MORE...

    Government versus Christianity

    We may argue from a theological position and, I agree, much of what is permissible in this country in sinful. It sickens me. But let’s look at these things from a Constitutional perspective. The country was founded on the principles of freedom & liberty which were put in place to accommodate a wide variety of religions and political viewpoints. There is an inherent double edge to the American political system that was established.

    Thomas Jefferson is quoted as saying “The legitimate powers of government extend to such acts only as are injurious to others. But it does me no injury for my neighbour to say there are twenty gods, or no god. It neither picks my pocket nor breaks my leg.” READ MORE...

  • What Is Christmas?

    What is Christmas? This article shows the surprising connection between Christmas and the creation of the world.

    Note: This article is featured in this booklet, which shows the surprising connection between Christmas and the creation of the world.

    In December, many Christians celebrate a holiday called Christmas.1 What is Christmas? During this season, there is particular emphasis on an event that occurred around 2,000 years ago in the town of Bethlehem in Judea (today called Israel).

    Christmas commemorates the birth of a baby—an event recorded in the Bible in such New Testament passages as Luke 2:1–20 and prophesied about in Old Testament passages such as Isaiah 7:14. The name given to this baby was Jesus. READ MORE...

  • Do Varves, Tree-Rings, and Radiocarbon Measurements Prove an Old Earth?

    The BioLogos Foundation has published a popular-level article by old-earth geologists Gregg Davidson and Ken Wolgemuth presenting arguments for an old earth. One such argument involves counts of sedimentary laminations (“varves”) within the floor of Japan’s Lake Suigetsu. Their article claims that the very large number of Lake Suigetsu varve counts is strong evidence for an old earth. Creation scientists would argue that most of the lamination couplets are not true annual events. In fact, a plausible explanation for the couplets was presented in the young-earth creationist literature one year prior to Davidson and Wolgemuth’s article. Davidson and Wolgemuth, however, present a new “spin” on the argument: they claim that the correlation between these “varve” counts and radiocarbon dates (as well as tree-ring counts), proves that the Lake Suigetsu varves are true annual events, thus presenting an unanswerable argument for an old earth. However, careful examination of the papers they cite shows that this apparent agreement is the result of the typical uniformitarian circular reasoning. Furthermore, Davidson and Wolgemuth made numerous errors in their article (even within their own uniformitarian framework) which cause one to question whether they carefully read all of the technical papers they cited. Furthermore, they seem to misunderstand the recent results of the RATE research project that showed strong evidence of ubiquitous in situ radiocarbon within fossil specimens that should be radiocarbon “dead” by uniformitarian reckoning. Such results pose a serious challenge to uniformitarian assumptions underlying conventional radiocarbon age-dating methods. READ MORE...

  • Christmas Town Expands at Museum; Ark Announces Special December Prices and Hours

    Editor’s note: This article was adapted from a news release that was recently distributed to the media.

    The Creation Museum has expanded dates for its highly anticipated annual free Christmas celebration known as Christmas Town—running daily Dec. 16–23 and 26–30 this year. At the same time, 45 minutes away, the popular new Ark Encounter, decorated with bright lights, will stay open late on the same dates as Christmas Town, with Ark admission half price after 5 p.m. and free parking. At the Creation Museum, admission is only $5 after 5 p.m. on those Christmas Town dates. READ MORE...

  • Christmas Timeline of the Biblical Account

    When December hits, many familiar questions surrounding the birth of Christ come to mind. For example, some ask about making Christmas sermons relevant, the origin of Christmas and if it was pagan, the star of Bethlehem, the “inn” where Jesus was born, and many others. Of course, these are important topics, but it is also important to understand the timeline of events surrounding the birth of Jesus.

    The Christmas timeline of the biblical account is called into question by many skeptics. They claim the nativity accounts of Matthew and Luke do not line up, and therefore the accounts should be discarded. Sometimes they go so far as to say that few are even aware of the issues with the Christmas timeline. READ MORE...

  • How Did Infectious Diseases Get on the Ark?

    Though you might not see an exhibit dedicated to it when you visit the Ark Encounter, there was an enormous “elephant” on board the Noah’s Ark: germs.

    We live in a germophobic society, so it’s ironic just how many germs must have actually made it on board the Ark. Even though there are mostly good germs, many people tend to focus on only the bad germs—pathogens that seem to exist only to make us sick. So skeptics of the biblical account question whether pathogens (e.g., syphilis) were present on the Ark. READ MORE...

  • Alabama’s Underwater Forest

    Remnants of a cypress forest were recently discovered off Alabama’s coast.
    What climate changes could explain such a massive rise in ocean level?

    Sixty feet (18 m) beneath the green
    waves of the Gulf of Mexico, about
    15 miles (24 km) off the Alabama
    coast, lie the remnants of an ancient
    forest of giant cypress trees.1 For hundreds
    of yards (meters), the stumps
    follow the lazy meanders of what
    appears to be an ancient river channel
    that flows down from the coast,
    near the place where two present-day
    rivers spill into the sea through the
    Mobile-Tensaw River Delta.

  • Charitable Gifts Using Life Insurance

    The greatest investments are made in the hearts and lives of people for eternity. These are the investments that keep on giving—sometimes for generations! Now, did you know that your life insurance policy can be used to make an eternal impact in the kingdom of God? You can give the gift of life insurance to a Christian charity or organization and be a partner in accomplishing God’s mission.

    One of the primary purposes of life insurance is to provide for family in the event the insured passes away prematurely. Life insurance is often used to protect against the loss of an insured’s income, to provide needed liquidity to an insured’s estate, or to replace an inheritance. Another purpose is to protect a business in the event of the death of a business owner or other individuals who are key to the business’s success. In this context, it is necessary for the business to maintain “key person” insurance so that the business has the necessary cash to engage in a mandatory purchase, or redemption, of company stock from the estate of the insured or to protect against the loss of company income due to the death of a key employee. A mandatory redemption in cases involving closely held businesses is often required by a shareholder agreement signed by each shareholder so as to ensure the continuity of a business after the death of a shareholder.
