Birth Announcement

Tuesday, December 01, 2015
I got baptized nine years ago at some church where my boyfriend was going.  A couple days ago, someone pointed out to me that I wasn't baptized for the forgiveness of my sins.  I just got baptized again.  I haven't really told anyone yet.  I feel kinda dumb for not knowing all those years and thinking that I was going to heaven.  Am I lying by not saying something?

 

Sincerely,
Back To The Beginning

Dear Back To The Beginning,

The willingness to change when confronted with the truth is the mark of an intelligent and honest person.  You have nothing to be ashamed of.  You aren’t required to tell everyone you meet, but don’t avoid the subject.  The fact that you are concerned that you are lying is a sign that your conscience is bothering you.  If there are people that you specifically avoid the subject with, and it is bothering your conscience, then you may need to go out of your way to tell them.  It is very important that christians always try and keep a clean conscience (Acts 24:16).

On top of that, you have nothing to be ashamed of; being baptized is a joyous event and an opportunity to let your light shine (Matt 5:16).  You are a christian now.  Christians have a responsibility to confess Christ to the rest of mankind (Matt 10:32-33).  Let those around you know how happy you are.

Flooded With Fossils

Monday, November 30, 2015
How does the Bible explain dinosaurs and all the other prehistoric fossils we have?  Isn't evolution the only answer?

 

Sincerely,
Brontosaurus Or Bust

Dear Brontosaurus Or Bust,

Dinosaurs would have been created on day six like all the other land animals (Gen 1:24-25).  They also would have been brought onto Noah’s ark along with the other animal pairs (Gen 6:19).  In fact, the book of Job mentions two beasts referred to as the ‘Behemoth’ and the ‘Leviathan’ that sound an awful lot like dinosaurs (Job 40 & 41).

Evolution isn’t the only answer for the dinosaurs’ disappearance; natural extinction is also an answer.  The dinosaurs, just like the dodo bird, could have just as easily gone extinct through natural processes after the Flood.

Fossils are also easily explained using the Flood.  Fossils are most often formed when things are rapidly buried in mineral-rich sediment.  Fossils occur in cataclysmic or catastrophic circumstances.  The Noachian Flood is a perfect scenario for the creation of fossils.  In fact, there are a great many creation scientists that think that most of the fossils we have today were laid down in the Great Flood.  Dinosaurs can easily be explained through the Bible story – a story which does not include evolution.
