7 Words that Distinguish Our Founding Fathers from Modern Americans

Them’s tough words. And true.
Daniel

The Recovering Legalist

“We hold these truths to be self-evident…”

If there were ever any words that are so antithetical to today’s culture, these words from the Declaraton of Independence stand out above them all.

Believe it or not, the founding fathers of the United States of America firmly held to the belief that there are absolute, transcendent truths by which we are able to govern and judge society.

They not only believed there are “truths,” but they believed that these truths are “self-evident.” In other words, they believed that these transcendent truths, rooted in the nature of God, were not hard to find, but plain for all to see, should they only open their eyes. Hence the term self-evident.

Today’s culture has totally rebelled against the concepts of truth and anything that is self-evident. For example, the truth is that God created male and female (Gen. 1:27; Mark 10:6), and what…

The scientific case for a young earth model

This is a rather succinct look at some of the science behind why Earth is here … and not necessarily very, very, very old …

A Bit of Orange

Many people want to know if we Young Earth Creationists can make a case for our position beyond merely poking holes in the Deep Time/Evolutionary position. The answer is yes. Here are just a few examples of scientific observations which prove the deep time/evolutionary timeline to be impossible, and that the earth is, at most, .02% the age we are told by evolutionary dogma (note- NOT 2%, but 0.02%):

  1. The faint sun paradox: The sun is getting brighter over time, which means it was darker in the past. If the earth is 4.5 billion years old, then the earth would have been frozen solid at the time life was supposedly evolving. But even worse, the ice and snow would have reflected back enough light to make the earth even colder, and it would have never thawed.

Deep time Ice age models have the same problem. Once an ice age begins…

Proverbial Thought (& More)

Proverbs 11:4

“Riches profit not in the day of wrath: but righteousness delivereth from death.”

Extending Life

According to Wikipedia approximately 250 people are believed to have invested in cryopreservation as a means of maintaining their bodies in a suspended state after death. They hope that science will one day find a solution to whatever it was that killed them so that they may live again! Considerable wealth is necessary to fund cryopreservation, but the fact remains that even the wealthy die. No amount of money can change the fact that our days on earth are numbered.

Death Approaches Silently

Years ago while anchored in the Shatt-al-Arab River we hosted some officers from another British ship in our bar one night. I spent a long time listening to one of them telling me about his perfect his life. He had bought a new flat (apartment) back home, and a new…

VerseD: Psalm 19:1

The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above proclaims his handiwork.
Psalm 19:1, ESV

There is no reason to not believe in God. Creation itself points to a Creator.

The wise will find their way, also, to the Son of God.
