Found & Fiction

We rounded out our family time series tonight with the last couple F's in the history of the dinosaurs.


The book explains the interaction people have had with fossils througout history and some of the debates that surround those fossils. The most important topic for all of us to consider is to separate observation from interpretation. Evolutionists and Creationists agree on most of the observations made about the bones but when the larger story is considered the interpretation is very different. We believe that we should start with the truth of God's Word. Evolutionists start with "millions of years."


Have you ever heard of the half-bird/half-dinosaur Archaeopteryx? It is a popular idea that dinosaurs evolved into birds. This was part of the story in
Jurassic Park. If you don't believe me, just watch this scene. Anyway, if dinos became birds then the dinos that became Archaeopteryx must be older than it. Right? It should go through a sequence. Step 1: All dino. Step 2: Half dino-Half bird. Step 3: All bird. Only one problem with that for the evolutionists. The Step 1 dino that supposedly turned into Archaeopteryx turned out to be younger (more recent) than the Step 2: Half-Half. Be careful little eyes what you see.

The book gets at the heart of the issue. It is the heart that is the issue. If the Bible is completely true (and it is). Then God would have every right to be dominant over his creation (and He is). Therefore, I do not have the right to do, think, say whatever I want (and I don't). God is the Creator, Sustainer, Provider, and Moral Law-giver. My kids will live under my rules as long as they are under my roof. God has set up His rules and His standard. We all have sinned and deserve hell. God chose to provide a Saviour but God has given you the choice to accept or refuse Jesus as your Saviour. Jesus

If God did not create this world He has no right to rule over it and tell us anything about our lives. However, if He did create this world (including you), then He has every right to rule over His creation. Let His kingdom come and His will be done on earth as it is in heaven!
