Daily Word



"The reward of being 'faithful over a few things' is just the same as being 'faithful over many things' ; for the emphasis falls upon the same word; it is the 'faithful' who will enter 'into the joy of their Lord.'"- Charles S. Robinson

I suspect that most of the individuals who have religious faith are content with blind faith. They feel no obligation to understand what they believe. They may even wish not to have their beliefs disturbed by thought. But if God in whom they believe created them with intellectual and rational powers, that imposes upon them the duty to try to understand the creed of their religion. Not to do so is to verge on superstition. - Mortimer J. Adler

Have Courage And Be KindEven in the fire be courageous, kind, become refined.Even When trials come, truth is skewed, hell burns all around...have courage and be kind.Watch how God carries you to goodness within and even sometimes outside too.See the magic and miracles that can unfold; sometimes the biggest miracle is being able to stand in truth and integrity through the flames, or using the flames to find these gem Sermon. I found this guy through my mom the other day in such an uncanny way, and so much of what he was saying was confirming my thoughts earlier that daNot an Adventist, but he is certainly one who I can ride with. Very amazing insights and really humble and real. So this Spiritual Sabbath, here is an actual Adventist sermon.God can use the fire to burn up the bondages and bad wrapped all around you from others or even yourselfFire destroys things, and can make things stronger, sharper and more beautiful all at onceGod walks with you through hell sometimes, not always around it--to make your inner and outer demons, burn instead. What the enemy meant to destroy you, God will use to deliver you. Part AThe message is taken from the story of the three Hebrew boys thrown into the fire.Think it is Found in the book of Daniel. Part B Music to SootheCinderella inspired music, since some of the theme is inspired by this. Gospel and other inspirational musicMore edge now. Don't let life's hardship burn you out, but burn the darkness out of you.Don't give up, don't bow to idols or anyone's ideals or demands. Forgiveness and LoveI pray you all were blessed, we are all imperfect hurt people that hurt more imperfect hurt people. Today cherish life, love and every bit of good no matter how small, even if those for you are small too, love them and even those who don't even if it is hard.Your softening heart will make it easier and not enduring circumstances so hard....

Apologetics
Debunking evolutionWe live in an age where evolution is taught in schools and people act like it is an irrefutable scientific fact. But does it contain credible scientific evidence supporting it? Or is it merely a philosophy supported by faith? But first, we have to understand what evolution is.Evolution was first coined in 1859 by Charles Darwin where he described it as the process by which organisms change over time as a result of changes in heritable, physical and behavioral traits. Changes that allow an organism to better adapt to its environment and survive to have more offspring.Now, there are actually six (6) types of evolution ranging from cosmic to micro evolution:1.) Cosmic evolution - The origin of time, space and matter from nothing in the Big Bang.2.) Chemical evolution - All elements evolved from hydrogen.3.) Stellar evolution - Stars and planets formed from gas clouds.4.) Organic evolution - Life begins from inanimate matter.5.) Macro evolution - Animals and plants change from one type to another.6.) Micro evolution - Variations from one "kind" of species.However, the only one of these six that is truly grounded in science is micro evolution, which produces minor variations of the animals of the same species. An example of micro evolution would be all the various dog breeds we have through selective breeding. Therefore, variations of animals is not being disputed by anyone. This is testable, observable, repeatable and is proven true.The problem and dispute with evolution arises when one addresses macro evolution and the claim that all life originated from non-life. First, variations of animals produced via micro evolution is not evidence for macro evolution because all the genetic information is already present in their genes. Nothing new is really created and all the animals such as the various dogs breeds are still the same species - they are all still dogs.Therefore, using these variations as evidence for macro evolution is a hasty generalization fallacy, as there are lots of steps being skipped there. So since these variations is not evidence, it cannot used to support macro evolution. To clarify further, macro evolution is not saying man evolved from monkeys or apes. That is a misconception. It is saying that all organisms evolved from a common ancestor. But more on that later. Point #1First, let us address the origin of life, because you cannot have evolution if you have no life. So where did the first life come from? Proteins are made up of amino acids in a chain, and they must be arranged in a specific order to have a single functioning protein. So the probability of one protein coming into existence through random chance is 1/2 to the 164th power. That is a 1 with 164 zeroes, which is mathematically 0.To quote scientist James Tour, who is a leading origin of life researcher with over 630 research publications, he has this to say in the origin of life:,Is mutations evidence for macro evolution? National Geographic published an article saying that all organisms evolved from one bacteria. And common ancestry is seen in similarities among the different species. However, the same article also gives the probability of this which comes out to 1/2 to the 2,680th power. That is a 1 with 2,680 zeroes behind it.Fast forward, some supporters of evolution cite Hox genes for evidence of evolution. But that fails too because new information is not being shown, nor are there any instances of genes, new organs, new proteins and new species being created. While Hox genes do help organisms properly develop as an embryo, it is an irreducibly complex system that only constructs the organisms from the genetic material that is already present.Point #2If all you've been hearing is fossils as evidence for evolution, then this next point is going to be a surprise. But in reality, the fossil record shows that things do not change over time, which is exactly what we expect from a creationist perspective. While evolutionists like to claim that the fossil records supports evolution, the number of transitional fossils between species discovered is 0. There have been claims that transitional fossils were discovered such as Lucy in 1974. But Lucy was debunked as being an eighth rather than a new species. And all transitional fossils have either been debunked or exposed as a hoax.Stasis and creation, on the other hand, is supported by what we really see in the fossil records. An article from Science Daily published April 16, 2018 from the University of Bristol admits that the dinosaurs suddenly appeared all at once and not gradually over time as evolution would suggest. The lead author Dr. Massimo Bernardi said below:,By examining ancient bugs fossilized in amber and comparing them to modern-day bugs, they are shown to not have changed in all this time. As Grimaldi, curator of the American Museum of National History in New York, noted in a Yahoo news article from 2012. When comparing ancient mites in amber to modern-day descendants, he was surprised by how similar they were:,In March 20, 2019, a fossilized bird was found dating back 110 million years on an evolutionary timeline, with a bird egg still preserved. This tells us birds back then reproduced just like birds today. Nothing has changed. Then we have discoveries such as this living fossil fish which was long-thought to be extinct and was believed to be a missing link that showed sea creatures evolving to walk on land. But when we discovered this living fossil in 1938, it remained the same as its fossils. Nothing has changed. Furthermore, the Ashley Phosphate beds that contains dinosaur bones intermingled with sea life and bones that belong to a man. Evolutionist conveniently ignore that fossil site.The fossil records showing stasis and supporting creation is a problem for evolution that even the evolutionary biologist Donald Prothero admits that the first major discovery that stasis was much more prevalent in the fossil record than had been previously supposed:,Many paleontologists came forward and pointed out that the geological literature was one vast monument to stasis, with relatively few cases where anyone had observed gradual evolution. DeductionSo the conclusion of whether evolution is fact or fiction, despite there being bold claims by evolutionists and the media that evolution is a settled science, and people such as Richard Dawkins saying "It is absolutely safe to say that if you meet somebody who claims to not believe in evolution, that person is ignorant, stupid or insane." Well, I guess the 500+ scientists including biologists, chemists and physicists are ignorant when they write "We are skeptical of claims for the ability of random mutation and natural selection to account for the complexity of life. Careful examination for the evidence for Darwinian theory should be encouraged." And that is ultimately the problem. Evolutionists say things like that because they do not really have much tangible evidence supporting their world view. While variations of animals are true and no one is disputing that, evolution has no explanation for the origin of life and DNA, no explanation for the complexity of life we see, and the scientific evidence we do see in biochemistry, biology and the fossil records supports creation.Evolution stands only on faith, and people believe it only because of indoctrination. You learn it in school, read it in science books that casually use it as if it were scientific law, and have evolution preaching it. But if you never question what they say and just accept it on blind faith without looking into it yourself, then of course you will believe it. To put it simple, evolution is an outdated theory that is debunked by modern science. It was proposed when people did not know anything about cells. Evolution is like the story of the Emperor's New Clothes; he walks around naked but he is told he is wearing a beautiful robe. He doesn't question it because he doesn't want to look like a fool for not seeing. No one tells him they can't see it because he's the king.Evolution is ultimately a philosophy standing on faith created to try and remove God - and that is the real problem. They do not want to believe in God, therefore they put their faith in myth and force science upon it instead of allowing the evidence to speak for itself and determine the outcome.. *Radiometric dating will be addressed.*Adam, Eve, and human genealogyCollaboration with @DesertFox088 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g0mQn63ie08&feature=youtu.be Further reading: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zU7Lww-sBPg&t=0s https://www.jmtour.com/personal-topics/evolution-creation/ https://www.truthinscience.org.uk/content.cfm?id=3161 https://www.nationalgeographic.com/adventure/article/100513-science-evolution-darwin-single-ancestor https://answersingenesis.org/genetics/mutations/mutations-yes-evolution-no/ https://www.icr.org/article/lucy-languishes-human-ape-link https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2018/04/180416105803.htm https://news.yahoo.com/prehistoric-tiny-bugs-found-trapped-amber-194114616.html?guccounter=1&guce_referrer=aHR0cHM6Ly93d3cueW91dHViZS5jb20v&guce_referrer_sig=AQAAAF9RlDbj4Lbtmb9qGLgvPoBvwfaVqDgisiPymVza53n-OPzV7xwKW9bw2PTuRp_tdIuKE1W5CXlS8PTbzofhOIZkWnxAfIOkQmWAqIgjhACevfZEtWiWdg9HB2Hvij2tIoHwCbr2PTWyD7giKyPGIeYGkcOorF6MAGYSAZgBziLo https://www.sciencenews.org/article/first-fossilized-egg-found-cretaceous-bird https://www.nationalgeographic.com/animals/fish/facts/coelacanths https://evolutionnews.org/2015/10/stasis_when_lif/ https://www.icr.org/fossils-stasis/ https://evolutionnews.org/2006/02/over_500_scientists_proclaim_t/...

In this video, we explore how Israel’s temple in the Bible is described as the place where God’s space and humanity’s space are one. In fact, the whole biblical drama can be told as a story about God’s temple. In the opening pages of Genesis, God creates a cosmic temple, and in the person of Jesus, God takes up personal residence in his temple-world. By the end of the biblical story, all of creation has become God’s sacred temple.




The Bible Project is a non-profit creating free videos that walk through the narrative of the Bible book-by-book and theme-by-theme.  They also have an informative & entertaining podcast, as well as reading plans and other resources.  You can find more information about them here:
