In Defense of Easter- from Answers in Genesis

this post contains affiliate links

Here is a new Easter resource from Answers in Genesis.

10-4-396

 

Without the Resurrection, there is no hope.

We would still be in our sins, and the Christian faith could not exist. Jesus would be a fraud since He frequently predicted His own resurrection, even designating it as His sign for an unbelieving world.

Skeptics and critics understand the magnitude of the Resurrection, and they have developed numerous theories in their desperate attempts to explain away the wealth of evidence. The early Christians focused uniquely on Christ’s conquering of death. Yet many in the church today only discuss this vital doctrine at Easter time, and some fail to mention it entirely when attempting to share the gospel with unbelievers.

In Defense of Easter is a biblical and timely apologetic resource that teaches readers:

  • How history and archaeology support the Resurrection
  • Why skeptical explanations come up short
  • How the Resurrection provides hope and comfort
  • Whether Easter is a pagan holiday

Equip yourself to answer today’s skeptical challenges and strengthen your confidence in the risen Savior. Discover why everything hinges on the Resurrection of Jesus Christ.

If you haven’t heard already, Ken Ham and Bill Nye will be debating live on February 4th at 7pm, LIVE from The Creation Museum!

Our whole family plans to watch!

From the Answers in Genesis site:

Is creation a viable model of origins in today’s modern, scientific era? Leading creation apologist and bestselling Christian author Ken Ham is joined at the Creation Museum by popular TV personality and evolution apologist Bill Nye.

Ham, a former science instructor who emigrated to the USA from Australia over 25 years ago, is joined by the popular children’s program personality Bill Nye “the Science Guy” for this first and only scheduled debate. Each man delivers what he believes is the best information currently available for his case. Each then has an opportunity for rebuttal and afterward answers questions submitted by the audience.

The upcoming February 4 debate has already generated significant attention from national media, and tickets to attend live were completely sold out within two minutes of release.

Don’t miss this “debate of the decade”! Watch at home, or organize to show the live stream to your small group, your youth group, or even your entire church. This event may be freely rebroadcast to groups so long as no admission or other fees are charged to any participants or attendees.

Seeing God’s Character in His Creation

God's Character in Creation.jpg

Yesterday we took  a spontaneous trip to the shore for a picnic

It was a rare 84 degrees in October, so in the morning I told the kids if they finished their work,  we would could take a trip to the beach for lunch and exploring. (I never saw them work so diligently! 😉

We had a great afternoon. We ate lunch and then the kids had fun just exploring in the water. When we arrived it was low tide, and there were millions of little sand crabs. They had a blast digging in the sand and watching as the little critters tried to bury themselves back into the sand. At first we didn’t know what they were, but then we looked it up on my phone and we learned all about them right there on the beach.

Then as they day went on, the tide started getting higher and higher. Where we once sat on our chairs, became completely covered in water. What a great opportunity to talk about the tides and the moon, and SO much more.

These are the lessons I love.

They are real. We experience them. They are not just words in a book, but things we feel and see and hear.

What I loved most was seeing our Creator in His Creation.

It never ceases to amaze me how nature always shows us God’s character. From His creativity in His Creation, to the incredible detail in Creation. I mean, how can you not look at all of those little critters and see how amazing they are. They could NOT have just evolved here accidentally. Each one is so intricately designed. It’s fascinating.

Seeing God’s character through His Creation is something I treasure for my kids.

They stare at the enormity of the sea, or the grains of sand, the tiny sea shells so perfectly formed, or the huge amount of little critters and they see how enormous God is. How sovereign. That He knows each grain of sand, each molecule of each creature. It blows my mind. We just stared at the beach and said, “God knows every detail.” Truly amazing and truly a moment I will cherish.

I am glad I listened to that voice in my mind early in the morning to take them to the beach. I am pretty sure we won’t have many days that warm left this fall, so instead of thinking of all the reasons why I shouldn’t go, I just thought of all the reason I should. What a blessing.
