Greetings in the Name of our Lord and Savior Jesus the Christ!
Our 2012 Creation Expo is over and complete with the victory that we received when Dr. J Wile Debated Dr. Robert Martin. It was a fantastic event to see. Dr. Wile was dead on with his facts and examples, while Dr. Martin was evasive, somewhat condescending and outright wrong with many of his statements along with his use of circular reasoning. In my opinion the Creation version won the debate!
The audience was fantastic with their questions and the respect they showed in the presence of someone who obviously distained the Creationist point of view.
We want to thank Dr. Martin for taking part in our forum and we are looking forward to next year’s Creation Evidence Expo to further show the world the Evidence that Genesis 1:1 is true! In the beginning God Created the Heavens and the Earth.
Gal 4:16 Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth? KJV
ARE WE CONSIDERED THE ENEMY BECAUSE WE PRESENT THE TRUTH ABOUT GOD IN THE CREATION STORY?
The answer is an unequivocal YES!
In 1981 I had a conversation with Dr. Carl Calpe who was the Superintendent of the Indianapolis Public Schools at that time I was serving on a taskforce that was investigating the violence in our schools. Dr. Calpe told me that our educational system was declining and turning into a system that promoted Humanism, Abortion, Homosexuality, and the Occult; I called him a liar because I knew that the Christian Ethic that was dominant during that period of time could never be overcome. If Dr. Calpe was Alive today I would apologies for being so wrong in my assumptions!
This reminds me of a scripture in the book of Isaiah 5:20-23
Isa 5:20 Woe unto them that call evil good , and good evil ; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! 21 Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight! 23 Which justify the wicked for reward, and take away the righteousness of the righteous from him! KJV
In the eyes of our educational system and the secular media, those who oppose their views are considered the enemy.
If we oppose Abortion in favor of Life, we are said to be against a woman’s rights to birth control!
If we stand for the definition of Marriage being between a man and a woman, we are said to be bigoted and prejudiced against Homosexuals ( I am against polluting the most sacred covenant between a Man and a Woman because it is an eternal covenant between God and Man). The conception of same sex marriages pollutes the whole reason and concept of marriage.
If we say that we believe in God as our Creator, they say that we are forcing our religion on them because they don’t believe in God. No one has ever said that they must convert to a belief in God!
If we say that we are against Euthanasia (Suicide), they say they have a right to decide on the quality of the life they have, and they have a right to take their own life if they choose to.
If we say that Man was created by God, they say that man is the descendant of a Monkey!
The opinions and beliefs that most Christians hold are all but illegal to teach in most of our educational systems, while the religion of Humanism is teaching the lie of Evolution as truth all throughout our schools,
Through the fault of the Christian community and its profound apathy (ignoring the assault on Christianity), the Christian Community has allowed itself to become the Enemy of Modern Society by not defending our faith.
The shame of it all is that this profound apathy is only exceeded by the extreme ignorance of the Christian Community about the evidence that supports their faith in a Divine Creator. Many Christians take it for granted and say: “I don’t know and I don’t care!”
By not putting up an argument to defend our faith they are allowing the secular community to frame who we are, and what the arguments are that they want to make. This places Christians perpetually on the Defense.
The Christian Community needs to go on the offense and state who we are and make the claim that our viewpoint shouldn’t be removed from our educational system simply because we believe the evidence that supports our views! The Christian Community has taken the doctrine of turning the other cheek to the extreme and we have been found wanting in the eyes of God! We need to contend for our faith!
Heb 11:3 Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear. KJV
Heb 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please him (God): for he (men) that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him. KJV
How many people do you know that have this wishey washy faith that God might be there but they aren’t sure, or I believe that God created us but it took him millions of years to do it, or maybe they need to do something to earn Gods favor, or maybe God is still punishing them for their sins just to name a few of their excuses.
We at the Creation Evidence Expo (CEE) believe that God Created us and the universe in Six literal Days; He molded us, and shaped us in His own image, and He took the extra step to breathe His breath into us; He gave us a living Soul! God designed a plan for all humanity to return to Him after our earthly house is dissolved (or Dead); our soul and spirit will go to the eternal house not made by hands.
Genesis 1:1 is true! This is the foundation of CEE that we stand on, and all of our efforts, and the evidence that we present go to support this claim.
Our 2012 Expo was a great success and we are already looking to the 2013 Expo year. Our Expo on the Road programs will visit over sixty churches before the end of the year, and our speakers are preparing new material for the upcoming year. If you would like for us to visit you at your organization or church, give us a call or leave a message on our website we will be happy to set up a time and a place for CEE to visit you.
Our website: www.creationexpo.org or give us a call at 317-345-9072. We will be delighted to work with you and your organization to raise the awareness of your people on the evidence that shows that the Bible is true!
We are working hard behind the scenes to promote and lobby for Truth In an Education proposal that we hope to become law in the 2013 Indiana Congressional year. We are working with the State Legislators from the House and Senate to make this happen. So join us in our efforts to improve education in our schools and to show the evidence that Genesis 1:1 is true: In the beginning God Created the Heavens and the Earth.
Remember It’s FREE to the public but not to CEE! We don’t charge anything however we do accept a freewill offering to help support our efforts and we will bring along Books and DVDs, as tools to sell if you wish to purchase them.
If you wish to support our Expo you can Partner with us with a Family membership for $50.00 a year, or a Business Sponsor for $250.00 or more for a One year Sponsorship!
Stay posted we will keep you informed on our progress in the near future.
May God Bless and Keep you!
