Why blog? My mother brought this idea to me and I was a bit skeptical at first. However, a calling has been felt lately to somehow share my insight and journey as a soldier for Christ. It has been prayed about and I don’t want to risk missing His answer.
God blessed me with the gifts of discernment and counsel. He has blessed me with the ability to lead, to write and to encourage. There is also a gift of boldness, which can be used for both good and evil.
I desire with all my heart to use these gifts for His Glory and maybe this Blog will be an avenue in which they can. My goal is to be faithful to write, even if no one reads them in order to answer His call over all else. If He blesses you through this, Praise Him! If He blesses me through this, Praise Him! What truly matters is that He gets the Glory through all of this. I do not want to make you feel good, but make you think and ultimately act.
This time of year is supposed to bring Christmas cheer but for many it is another opportunity to bash the followers of Christ. While checking in on Facebook today I happened across something that I couldn’t stay quiet about. Well, I technically could be silent but since I have God-given boldness, intelligence and a blog, why would I?
Steven B Foster Jr. publicly attacks all conservative Christians who believe in creation…
“The bottom line is that Candace Cameron-Bure couldn’t defend her ridiculous claims when challenged to do so and even when she was given time to compose a defense during a commercial break, she still couldn’t answer Behar. And that’s what happens when you challenge a conservative Christian to explain themselves. They fall flat on their face — and this time it happened on national television for all to see.” Steven B Foster Jr.
Well hello Mr. Foster, let me introduce myself. I am a conservative Christian who is ready to answer.
Now, if directing others to scientific museums or other Christian scientists who can defend creation (as she did) is cheating , then I would challenge you and Behar to quote evolution facts that are from your own scientific research as well.
Scientists have consistently found that the necessary measurable factors needed to produce a livable universe, not to mention the requirements for life to originate and be sustained here on Earth, are numerous. Yet we show faith by believing that an outside intelligence created these perfect conditions? I think evolutionists need more faith to believe this all just happened against all inconceivable odds.
Many scientists have long maintained that Junk DNA sequences were the most compelling evidence for common descent or evolution. Numerous studies over the last ten years have proven that nearly every class of Junk DNA displays a function. Duplicated genes are functionally significant. Genome size correlates with reproductive fitness. Two separate studies concluded that junk DNA sequences play a key role in embryonic development. These findings mean that the sequences present in human and great ape genomes could be interpreted as evidence for common design, not common descent.
I really could go on, but I don’t expect any evolutionist to read this and change their stance. What I would hope for is a less ignorant classification of all creation believing, conservative Christians by those who believe differently. After all, we are often referred to as intolerant or judgmental by the masses but insulting our beliefs and intellect is somehow acceptable. Maybe this Christmas we can spend a little more time working on ourselves and what really drives that need to degrade and belittle those who views oppose our own.
