My apologies to those who anticipated the September newsletter. I’ve honestly been so bogged down that I neglected to draft it. If the only thing I have to complain about is how many opportunities and activity God is sending this ministry, then I’m truly blessed!
What Others Are Saying About Us
Recently, I had the opportunity to present what DefendingGenesis.org is doing to the West Virginia state convention of the Association of Fundamental Ministers & Churches, of which I am a proud member. It’s always good to fellowship with like-minded ministers of different denominational backgrounds. These guys are awesome!
I’d had the chance to speak at a local AFMC West Virginia northern district meeting back in January. The AFMC’s official publication, Fundamental News, reported:
“The Reverend Breeden brought the message from John 3:12, preaching “Creation vs Evolution.” He shared the scriptures that prove creation and debunk evolution. He encouraged all churches to recognize Feb 15. as Creation Sunday, to counter the churches who have fallen into the trap of having Evolution Sunday. He passed out brochures to help us understand God’s plan for creation. To add your signature to the Creation Letter, visit the website http://kcsg.wordpress.com. The site also informs churches about the opportunity of promoting a Summer of Creation initiative, creation conferences and trips to Creation museums. This will be a good resource to help churches equip themselves to combat the lie of evolution and defend biblical creation.”
I also ran across a blog post yesterday from August 3, 2009, Standing Firm on the OneTruth site that mentioned my efforts to spread the word about CreationLetter.com and CreationSunday.ning.com during Creation Collge 3:
“During our week at the Creation College, we were approached by a gentleman who informed us of the startling “Clergy Letter Project”, in which nearly 12,000 ministers have pledged to adhere to an evolutionary interpretation of Genesis and hold an “Evolution Weekend” at their churches, promoting the ideas of Darwin and a compromised position of God’s Word. Fortunately, the gentleman provided us with a business card with some web-sites devoted to challenging this gross compromise within the depths of the Church. They urged everyone to convince their churches to take a stand for Biblical Authority by promoting a “Creation Sunday”. You should sign the online petition at CreationLetter.com.”
OneTruth has a lot of good information on their site. Check out more from these guys at http://createdtruth.wordpress.com.
They’re After the Children
So you can definitely say that word’s getting around. It seems like everywhere I get the opportunity to speak on the subject of Genesis, someone inevitably comes up to me and says, “You know, I never knew that.” Especially the kids. It’s a good feeling to be able to give people answers, to let them know that they can trust the historical reliability of God’s revealed Word. A lot Christians simply haven’t thought out the consequences of acception evolution and millions of years, and what that compromise does to the foundational basis of the Gospel and to our perceptions of the authority of God’s Word. It’s exciting to see people’s faces as you give them the truth about dinosaurs, Noah’s Ark and the flaws of evolutionary theory – stuff you just won’t read in public school textbooks or, sadly, from many pulpits and Sunday school classes.
You can rest assured that the opposition is actively seeking to indoctrinate our children. It’s not just the textbooks. Evolution enforcement groups like the ACLU, local groups like TeachThemScience.org [co-sponsored by the pro-evolution Clergy Letter Project and Paul Kurtz’ anti-religious humanist Center ForInquiry, who recently organized an International Blasphemy Day] and, of course, the National Center for Science Education use their legal might to cow local school boards and punish anyone who even suggests we teach not only the strengths but also the weaknesses of evolution, much less alternatives to the theory. Textbook publishers want to sell their product, so they keep that High Wall of Protection around evolution and present a rosy view of Darwinism to naive students. Anxious to prove they’re on the evo bandwagon, publishers have adopted the advise of NCSE’s Eugenie Scott toutilize slippery terms to introduce evolution as “change over time” to introduce them to the Big Idea of evolution.
I could go on. For example, did you know about Camp Quest? American Atheist magazine reported that a “mass de-baptism” was held at Camp Quest where over “100 humans [mostly children] were cleansed of religious folly.” Camp Quest is the 1st US summer camp for children of atheists, humanists, brights, freethinkers and others who reject God. Make no mistake: evolutionists and atheists like Richard Dawkins, PZ Myers and others likening the teaching of biblical creation and God to intellectual child abuse with increasing frequency. Don’t suppose they’ll be satisfied with perverting the minds of their own children against God, nevermind the Biblical warning of Matthew 18:6. They won’t be satisfied until we aren’t allowed to teach our children anything about God or the Bible, while public schools push a purely humanist agenda.
The WV Creation Science Fair
That’s why Defending Genesis and the Kanawha Creation Science Group are organizing the first-ever WV Creation Science Fair to be held at the activities building of Rock Branch Independent Church [Nitro, WV] on February 27, 2010. Our keynote speaker and primary judge will be Dr G Charles Jackson of the Creation Truth Foundation. We want to encourage kids to pursue careers in the sciences from a Creationist perspective and to demonstrate that Creationists practice the same operationalscience as anyone else. And we want to remind folks that Creationists gave the world the scientific method and established most of the disciplines within science. In effect, we gave the world science itself. Scientific inquiry presumes purpose and design in nature. the Creation Science fair is open to all home school, Christian school and interested public school students in West Virginia. Applications and rules are available at the website: http://wvscience.wordpress.com.
Pray for us as we continue to do whatever our hands find to do for God’s glory!
