Please Stop Being Nice!

January 21, 2008

Actually, I hope you’re not. In fact, I’ve decided I’m going to stop being nice. And I believe that, more than anyone else, Christians should never be nice.

If you’re wondering where I’m going with this, you’ll just have to come to DV8 this Wednesday for our Worldview Night. We’ll be learning how to engage people in conversation and ask questions that will quickly expose faulty secular philosophies without making it a personal attack on them. And, of course, you’ll learn why you should stop being nice.

Wednesday at DV8 * 7:00 to 8:30

The Faith of Evolutionists

January 18, 2008
The faith of evolutionists makes the faith of most Christians – me included – look pretty weak sometimes. A story in the news today from the Associated Press reports on the “discovery” that an odd dinosaur that has puzzled researchers preferred to eat fish, a conclusion based on the shape of it’s mouth, which is very similar to “fish-eating crocodiles”.

Whenever you hear or read a report like this, be sure to look and listen for key words and phrases such as “might have”, “perhaps”, “could have”, etc., and you’ll quickly discover that the only thing they are truly sure about is that they found some bones.

So, because of the shape of the mouth, they know that these dinosaurs ate fish? Now, I have to ask: do these people not have Animal Planet or the Discovery Channel? Sure, crocs eat fish, but haven’t they seen footage of them coming up out of the water and taking down a water buffalo?

Whether the dinosaur ate fish, other dinosaurs, or veggies only is not the big deal here; it’s the faith of these supposed “objective” evolutionists in what would be considered extremely scant evidence in a court of law, and their leaping “logic” to arrive at their conclusions. They stand on an allegiance to science, yet violate the basic tenets of scientific study – their results are not observable, measurable, repeatable, etc. Like it or not, they are based on faith.

Maybe we, as Christians, should try to have the faith of an evolutionist?

Not Ready for the Holidays To Be Over? Here’s An Idea

January 8, 2008

MONTERREY, Mexico (AFP) – A 10-year-old Mexican boy glued his hand to his bed to avoid going back to school after the Christmas break, authorities said Monday.

“I thought if I was glued to the bed, they couldn’t make me go to school,” the boy, Diego, told AFP. “I didn’t want to go, the holidays were so much fun.”

“I remembered my mom had bought a very strong glue,” he said of the industrial strength shoe glue he used to stick his hand to the bed’s metal headboard, where he stayed stuck for two hours.

His mother Sandra Palacios was unable to free him and called paramedics and police to help. Diego watched cartoons while they worked to unglue him, eventually using a spray to dissolve the chemical adhesive.

“I don’t know why this happened. He is a very good boy,” said his mother.

Diego eventually made it school a few hours late.
