Q: Why are more and more people accepting homosexual behavior as an alternative lifestyle?

A: In the Bible we read that God created everything. He created the first man and woman—the first marriage. Thus, the doctrine of marriage that is based upon the literal events of Genesis is one man for one woman for life.

Quotable quote:

Dr Scott Todd, an immunologist at Kansas State University:

‘Even if all the data point to an intelligent designer, such an hypothesis is excluded from science because it is not naturalistic.’

– Todd, S.C., correspondence to Nature 401(6752):423, 30 September 1999.

The Bible also tells us that it’s an abomination if men have relations with men, or women with women. Homosexual behavior goes totally against the order that God created in the beginning.

The reason people, including some Christians, are abandoning the created order is because they have been indoctrinated by the media and the public education system to reject man’s origins as recorded in Genesis. Instead, they believe that man evolved; therefore, man has a right to do whatever he wants to do.

To solve the problem of the increasing acceptance of homosexual behavior in our nations, we need to get people back to the authority of the Word of God.

Education question:

What happened to the dinosaurs?

Dinosaurs are used more than almost anything else to indoctrinate children and adults in the idea of millions of years of earth history. However, the Bible gives us a framework for explaining dinosaurs in terms of thousands of years of history, and solving the mystery of when they lived and what happened to them.

Additional resources:

Textbook of the month:

Our featured textbook of this month is The Great Dinosaur Mystery Solved!

Ken Ham, in his own distinct and understandable teaching style, explains how to understand the big picture of earth’s history … from a biblical perspective. He then applies this biblical foundation to the intriguing topic of dinosaurs! The Bible actually makes the subject of dinosaurs come ‘alive’ as their great mystery is solved! You’ll also learn how to effectively use dinosaurs as ‘Missionary Lizards.’

Why is there such a separation between ‘faith’ and ‘science’?

About 400 years ago, there lived an English nobleman, philosopher and lawyer by the name of Sir Francis Bacon (1561–1626), who is regarded as the father of the ‘scientific method.’ As did many other great men of science, such as Sir Isaac Newton, he professed faith in God and the Bible. However, his writings, which have had a profound influence on the whole Western world, have achieved much harm as well. Find out how!

Praise and Prayer | Upcoming AiG Events

Praise and Prayer

Please pray over the following items during the next two weeks …

  • Next week, we will be mailing a special letter to our supporters from our chairman of the board (Pastor Don Landis), announcing a major, exciting development regarding the progress of the construction of the Creation Museum and new AiG headquarters. We’ll let you in on that now (and we alluded to it two weeks ago): in September, all four AiG offices in Northern Kentucky will be moving out to the new facility and be under one roof! Benefits: no more lease money to pay as we relocate to a facility that we own; less cramped conditions for our longsuffering staff; no more dealing with facilities that are getting old (one current building is over 30 years old, with air conditioning/heating problems); and so on. Please pray that there will be effective planning right now so that when AiG moves into the new facility, its outreaches will not be disrupted. Pray that the offices will be ready for occupancy by September.

  • About a month ago we asked you to pray about working out some of the ‘bugs’ with the rock façade being added to the Creation Museum building exterior. Praise the Lord—it seems that we have resolved the issues and the work is progressing! You can view some recent photos of the museum (taken from an airplane) at www.CreationMuseum.org

  • Normally, we don’t share staff prayer requests with you, but this time is an exception. Jean Ruh—who began working at AiG in our very first year of operation (1994), and then became a faithful volunteer—is gravely ill with lung and brain cancer. This sweet servant of God (a surrogate grandmother for many of us at AiG) wants us to pray for some of her unsaved family members during this time. Jean is calm and restful, and totally trusting in the Lord and, as of this morning, experiencing no pain, praise God.
