Visual Evidence Of Creationism With A Flash Flood

Kilauea Volcano in Hawaii

Visual Evidence Of Creationism

There are many National Parks, especially in the western United States that feature grand vista’s and incredible formations. Some of these National Parks are the Grand Canyon, Zion’s, Capital Reef, Bryce Canyon, Canyon Lands and many more. At the top of some very high rock formation at Zion’s nation park there is fossil evidence of sea life, thousands of feet above sea level.


As you walk and hike through Capital Reef national park and other nation parks there are brass placards telling you how certain formations are formed, according to science.


There are several pictures of spectacular formations in various national parks and from southern Utah included in this post to compare to the video at the bottom of this post that was taken of a flash flood in southern Utah four days ago from a drone.


 Here is the footage of a flash flood. Notice how the flood is more than just water and notice the amazing force of six inches or water. Click on the link:

Destructive Force Of Flash Flood

A Landslide Creates a Canyon In Wyoming The size is estimated at 750 yards long by 50 yards wide.

Additional evidence of Creationism in the form of the earth opening in the form of a fissure in Arizona . Check out this link to an unusual lava flow from the Kilauea Volcano in Hawaii.

People who place their faith or personal beliefs in science rather the creationism as taught from the Bible think that major changes in the earths crust come from long (millions) years of window and water in the process of erosion when these videos and pictures show that it is very conceivable that the destructive force of the earth can change its complexion in a relatively show period of time and be spectacular.

I’ll stick with the creation account found in Genesis.

Do We Have To Bear Our Grief And Sorrow Alone?

Do We Have To Bear Our Grief And Sorrow Alone?

“Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.” (Isaiah 53:4)

We know that our Redeemer has redeemed us from sin by paying for those sins while He suffered in the Garden of Gethsemane and on the Cross of Calvary. If we repent for those sins then the ransom that justice demands is paid for. We no longer carry the weight of those sins around. It’s like we had never committed those sins.

Repenting is like having a great burden taken of you shoulders. Just as sin can weigh us down, so to can sorrow and grief weigh us down.

The same can be true of our griefs and sorrows. Christ The Lord, has born our grief’s and carried our sorrows already. Why do we insist on bearing them ourselves? We can come unto Jesus and let him help us through our sorrows and our grief. We do not need to face those feelings alone.

As repentance requires effort on our part, so does overcoming grief and sorrow. We have to put for effort toward overcoming out griefs and sorrows asking The Lord to help us. As we open the door to The Lord in our trying times, he can bear us up and give us comfort as we strive to overcome. But we have to open the door to Him first.

To Judge Or Not To Judge, That Is The Question.

To Judge Or Not To Judge, That Is The Question Of this Opinion Piece

Judging others and being judged by others seems to be a big deal in our American society. It makes sense that “judging others” is a big concern for the non secular (religious oriented) segment of society. The Bible teaches the point of not judging others. The secular (nonreligious) part of our society seems equally concerned about the topic of not judging others.

Why is “judging others” such a big deal? Is it because people, don’t want to be judged? Is it because the non secular lean on Biblical teachings that judging others is bad and let God be the judge?

There could be many other reasons for the assertion not to judge others. I will restrain this opinion piece to the two issues mentioned: For the secular, don’t judge others because no one wants to be the subject of someone’s judgment and to the non secular aspect of Bible teachings on judgment.

My background is in Christianity and the biblical teachings of not judging others and knowing that God is the real judge of my actions and the actions of everyone else. I find it odd that secular society is concerned about not judging others and not wanting to be judged. Because they are in the secular category, they have no fear of being judged by God which should lift a great deal of weight of their shoulders.

For them, I think the issue is more about other people judging them and making them feel bad about themselves.

I think it is easy to understand the point of view that no one wants to be judged because being judged means that you have done something wrong or that someone disapproves of your actions. This can make one feel bad about oneself. No one wants to feel bad about themselves. If anyone is in this category of thought then they should be reminded that it does not matter what people think about you what matters is what you think about yourself.

Do you give power to others to make you feel bad? Do you keep all power to yourself on how you think about yourself? Eleanor Roosevelt has oft been quoted with this statement: “No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.” So if someone is “judging” you, big deal. Who cares? Only you can make yourself feel bad.

For the non secular demographic the issue of judgment becomes more complicated. We contend with the issues of not judging others even though we must do it every day. We also need to deal with the knowledge that God is our judge and we need to keep His commandments to get a favorable judgment.

The Bible tells us clearly not to judge, “judge not, for with what judgment ye judge, ye shall also be judged.” Most Christians just leave it at the level of not judging others, but like I said we do it every day. Let me illustrate a few examples of how we judge every day.

If your neighbor asked your 12-year-old daughter to babysit his kids for the evening and you knew that one of the parents was a convicted pedophile would you let your daughter accept the babysitting job? No, of course not. Putting a child in front of a pedophile is like putting an alcoholic drink in front of a reformed alcoholic.

If your 16-year-old daughter was asked out by a convicted rapist would you tell her to have a good time or would you tell her that she will not be going out with that man?

Say you come across two street vendors and they are both selling a certain type of wallet that you like. One is handmade, is strong, durable and will last a very long time. The other is mass-produced, has the same features as the handmade wallet but is $5.00 cheaper. Which wallet do you choose? It doesn’t matter, the point is that you have to judge or weigh the options of both choices and determine which is best for you. But you must judge.

In the case of the babysitting job for the known pedophile or the date with a known rapist you have to judge the same way. You weigh the options and look at the possibilities and decide if it is worth taking a chance.

There are all kinds of examples of the many ways in which we judge every day. So we must consider the second part of the statement from the Bible about judging others. “Judge not, for with what judgement ye judge, ye shall also be judged.” The first part is “judge not” the second aspect of the sentence is “with what judgment ye judge, ye shall also be judged.”

So if you want a righteous or favorable judgment in the great day of judgment you will make all your judgments righteously. God knows the intents and desires of your heart. If you’re judging righteously or attempting to judge righteously then God will look with favor upon you in the day of judgment.

Speaking to both demographics, the secular and non secular, I think we should consider the term “judging others” may be a bit over done. What I mean by this is that we may often use or feel that the judging of others as a way to put others down in order to make us feel better about our self. We may use “judging” as a way to insult others. Really that’s not judging others as much as it is just being mean and rude.

The act of judging is a means of weighing the various sides of an issue to make a decision. Is “xxx” good or bad, right or wrong, good for me or bad for me wondering about the consequences of either choice?

I think this is where tolerance comes into play. You may decide there is a need to judge someone. Go ahead and judge that person according to your belief system but be tolerant of that person and their beliefs. That person can be judged by you but you can still treat him or her fairly and with the respect they deserve. Just because you have judged their views as “wrong” in your eyes doesn’t mean you can’t be civil toward them and courteous to them.

As this article is being written, the elections are a week away. The closer to voting day the more vitriolic the add campaigns get. There’s no excuse for that but during the heated debates and after the election results are in we should all be tolerant of each other “learn to give each other what we need to survive…in perfect harmony” as the wise song “Ebony and Ivory” advocates.

My best friend is a life long friend of 47 years. I don’t agree with everything he believes. I have judged some of his views as incompatible with mine and vice versa. But we get along well, we’ve been there for each other and supported each other over the years.

Judging has its rightful place in the lives of either demographic but it does not need to get in the way of how we feel about ourselves. Making judgments doesn’t need to make us feel like we have sinned if we have used the process of judging wisely.

Avoid Being Deceived – By Their Fruits…

Avoid Being Deceived

Living a Christian life, is full of service, love, and being with people while in the act of service or in the act of worship in church meetings or in Sunday school or study groups.

Because a good Christian is actively interacting with many different people in many different ways, it is possible for an honest and sincere Christian to be deceived. An honest and sincere Christian that is being deceived, is a sad and confused Christian.

But it doesn’t have to be that way and the Scriptures help us understand what to do to avoid being deceived. In fact, the solution to this whole “avoiding deception” idea can be applied to a Christian’s life across the span of his life.

Avoiding being deceived doesn’t mean we have to be distrustful of people it just means that we need to keep our eyes open and our roots firmly planted in proper gospel soil.

Let us look at one popular passage of Scripture that is repeated in the Bible more than once, it talks about how to avoid being deceived.

“Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.”

Let’s break this passage down into a few separate parts for analysis: “Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.”

What are false prophets? For the purposes of this article I submit that a false prophet is anyone that comes to you with the intent to deceive you, and lead you away from a sure foundation, and lead you away from Jesus Christ.

We can be deceived and led away from Jesus from forces within Christendom and without.

We need to understand that with Jesus and his gospel comes, glorious eternal hope, and with that an abiding piece and contentment. Anything that leads us away from that could be considered “a false prophet” or an agent of the evil one.

What do they look like? What do they sound like? How do they go about doing these evil things? There is no limit to what this evil looks like or sounds like or how this evil works. But we will all know how to judge it when it tries to happen to us.

Also keep in mind that these false prophets look good on the outside but are inwardly ravening wolves. We can see this evil in our entertainment, or in so-called art. We can see it in public discourse and among our peers. Unfortunately, we can even see it among those Christians with whom we worship with. But we do not need to be afraid and paranoid and constantly worried. All we need to do is analyze that passage of Scripture that we read earlier in this article. We’ve already talked about the wolves in sheep’s clothing or false prophets, now let’s look about how to judge or determine whether they are good or evil.

“Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.”

This passage uses fruit as a comparison, but what is the fruit being compared to? Often these kinds of comparisons are left open ended because they can have many different comparisons and our list will not include all of the different types of fruit that could be used to deceive us. To fully determine what all the fruit means for you, is up to you to determine based on how well you know yourself.

But let’s look at several common comparisons that could be the fruit that deceives us. The

evil-one knows our weaknesses and everyone has different weaknesses, but the master deceiver knows how too customized the temptation according to our weaknesses in unique and subtle ways.

Pride for some is a weakness. Someone or something could come across your path and tempt you with pride. Someone or something to come across your path and tempt you with ill-gotten gains. Someone or something could come across your path and tempt you with sex. Someone or something could come across your path and tempt you with unrighteous power.

Ask yourself, “what are my witnesses?” That will help you be on the lookout for things to avoid, and avoid people who could tempt you.

The analogy for comparison goes on to ask, can a thorn bush produce delicious grapes? Can you get figs from a thicket of thistles? The answer to these questions is simply no. Does pornography bring you closer to God? The answer is no. The Bible is replete with commandments and discussions about chastity and not to lust after women, so of course pornography cannot lead you into the loving arms of your Savior.

Can you pluck peace from a tree of lying and deception? Can you pluck the fruit of joy from the tree of crime? Abusing your spouse or children is not an activity that will inspire you and uplift your soul heavenward.

Any temptations to do evil that you give into, or any evil act that you are involved in is like plucking grapes from a Bush of thistles. You can try all you want but it won’t happen. The only way you’re going to get delicious grapes is if you pluck the grapes from the grapevine. In this case the grapevine represents the word of God as taught to us from the sacred Scriptures, not from evil acts and not from giving into temptations that tempt your weaknesses.

Anyone who comes into your life through the media or in person that inspires you to do things that are evil or that appeals to your weaknesses are the grapes from thorns and the fig from thistles.

By their fruits you shall know them. If someone you look up to for being worthy of emulation is found to be a drug user or an abuser or in some other way involved in wicked activity then you know their fruits are no good and you know that you’re not going to get grapes or figs from them. From such, turn away and don’t be deceived. You know what your weaknesses are and you do not need people in your life that tempt you toward your weaknesses or encourage and enable you in your weaknesses.

That’s why we are taught this important lesson about judging people by their fruits. If they have good fruit then we know that they are worthy to be in our life and that we don’t need to fear them to tempt us or lead us astray. This is not to say that we need to avoid everybody that doesn’t have good fruits, but we just have to be careful how we interact with people according to their fruit.

We have people in our life that we love like our family and good friends, and we have people in our life that can help inspire us and motivate us to good fruit and then there are people in our lives that we choose to try and help them and be a good tree with good fruit for their tree of life. As long as we keep that straight then we know how to avoid being deceived and by the same lesson we know how help others not be deceived.

Distilled down to the purest elements…to avoid being deceived simply means judging that person by their fruits and how they tempt your own evil fruits or inspire your good fruits.

If this Christian article has pricked your conscience and you feel like your life is not in complete harmony with The Lord then repent. To repent means to have a change of heart and a desire to improve yourself. With the tender mercies of the atonement of Jesus Christ and your godly sorrow, The Lord will forgive you of your sins and set you on a clean path once again.

Stay strong in the faith my friends in Christ.
