The Signs of God’s Existence – Documentary

Whitefox_AvatarRay: I intend to put original material at our website. I say this because every now and then you will find it. If you go to the “TRAINING” toolbar above you will find some original video I have recorded in the “Creation vs Evolution” section and in the “Mens Breakfast Study”, “Revelation”, “Prophecy” and “Christian Muslim Debate” sections. Also if you troll enough here you will find some discussions with Brad Snell and myself. However there is so much good material on the net I have chosen to showcase some of the best available over the past several months.

I hope you will benefit from this latest video that I am showcasing in this video.

I am hoping others will contribute to the various topics at this website. Please like us, share us on Facebook, and leave your comments on the various topics.

No Intelligence Allowed

Whitefox_AvatarRay: Ben Stein produced a great movie a few years ago that detailed the kind of discrimination that Scientists who seek to tell the truth which favors intelligent design face, including job loss, being banned from scientific review journals and being ridiculed in general. The video is famous for the way in which Ben turned the tables on some famous evolutionists who tried to argue themselves for intelligent design but just not God as the intelligent designer.

Taking the Dinosaurs back.

Whitefox_AvatarRay: We feature examples from other websites that we like and we try to switch our topics from week to week. You can look down the left hand column at our site for the full listing of other websites that we like. You might enjoy the exercise of going back through our blog and looking at some of our previous articles and programs.

This week I want to feature the CREATION TODAY website. This particular discussion is about Dinosaurs or Dragons? Are Dinosaurs the commonly reported Dragon in ancient myth and literature? Did they walk among men? What about the Bibles reference to “Behemoth” in Job?

Creation vs Evolution

01ff5b7Ray: In this episode for part 1 we interviewed ADAM BENTON from the U.K. about his views of Evolution. We also asked Adam whether he considered himself to be a good person.

Ray: In the second part of our session we connected Adam with Dr. Harold McCarthy for some follow up conversation related to the 3 sessions we did with Harold in 2012. This resulted in a good debate between Creation vs. Evolution.

Devolution

RAY: Devolution is an interesting topic. In most cases things have wound downward not upward over time. For example the first Dinosaur (latin for “terrible lizard”) that was discovered was called Iguanodon as it was noted to be identical only more than 10x larger than todays Iguana. It is also this initial discovery that has caused the common belief that these terrible lizards had leather skin with scales. But the Iguanodon has seemingly devolved into todays Iguana. This is also the case for sharks which have devolved in size and plant species which have much smaller leaves than they did 6000 years ago. There is a scorpion that was found in an underground cavern system which appears to have lost its eyes over time. Wholly mammoths have lost their hair and are much smaller today (now called elephants). Humans that used to live up to 1000 years are now living only 80 years on average. The Neanderthal is an example of ancient humans that lived a long life. We know this because of their lengthened noses and their extra bone along the eyebrows. (It has been observed that noses never stop growing all of our lives and that extra bone accumulates above the eyebrows all of our lives.) Today no one lives long enough to develop the skull features of the Neanderthal. Opposite to what Darwin believed it appears that things are increasingly becoming reduced rather than improved over time.

This was in response to a very interesting article entitled Our sense of smell is “devolving” by Adam Benton

The Simplified King James Version. Why is Ray working on a version of the Bible that resembles the King James?

A few sentences were cut off in the video.

Ray: That is what proves the accuracy of the over 5000 Majority Texts and that is what disproves the two rogue Alexandrian documents known as the Alexandrian Text. The Alexandrian text should be avoided completely. These texts are also referred to as the Vaticanus (it was discovered in the Vatican) and and the Tischendorf (after the name of the one that discovered it in a monestory in the Sinai) it is also refered to as the Siniaticus. Some argue there are some other texts but these are the two almost complete texts from which we are now receiving most of our modern Bibles today.

One of the arguments for the need for newer bibles is the desire for English that is more up to todays standards. This is a legitimate argument and it is the reason that the KJV itself went through 5 revisions up to and including 1812, 1769 or 1762 depending on which version of the KJV you use. All of these versions are almost identical except for punctuations mostly.

I have chosen to stick with the KJV line of bible as the KJV is based on the Majority of the texts and not the alexandrian. There was a recent attempt to give us an updated language bible called the New King James Version (NKJV). The problem with this version however is that they too accepted some of the errors from the Tichendorf (Alexandrian).

Starting in around 2003 I took some courses in Greek and Hebrew so that I could better understand the original languages of the Bible. After that in 2009 I wrote a book entitled “Illumination or Illusion” which examined the various KJV and non-KJV versions which resulted in many people asking me which version of the Bible I would recommend for someone wanting to have a more modern Bible? Starting in 2010 I decided that I would experiment with producing an accurate modern version that I am calling the SKJV (Simplified King James Version).

We are now preparing this new version for use in “English as a Second Language” training by Missionaries overseas and eventually we hope to make it availble in regular book stores later on. The New Testament is complete and we have about a years worth of work to complete the Old Testament ahead of us.

If anyone would like to examine a portion of the SKJV, Look down the left side of the screen under FREEBIES for the downloadable copy of the Gospel of John. It includes the Bible introduction and some commentary. I hope to pick up on this topic again at a future time.

Brad: Well that concludes our show “Truth is what matters”. We hope to hear from our listeners. You may comment on any one of our programs. We look forward to hearing from you.

Religious Doctrine Whom Do You Follow?

BRAD: In this ever changing landscape of religious values, there is a  lot of room for interpretations of the bible.

How many versions are there and which one do you believe you should follow with the  most accurate translation?

We can start with the Old Testament, work our way into the New Testament, New International Version, King James Version, and a few more versions such as the New American Bible.

The other i would like to call break off religions, such as the Jehovah Witness also have their very own New World Translation version of the Bible.

As a matter of fact, in 1913 Baptist minister Rev. Ross of the James Street Baptist Church of Hamilton accused Watchtower founder Charles Taze Russell of preaching destructive doctrines which he did not have the credentials as a theologian or a scholar to preach to the newly formed Jehovah Witness.

Whether it is Scientology, the Raelian movement whom believe that soon we will be visited by entities from another galaxy, the Mormons, to just name a few, people succumb to the doctrine preached by the head of their chosen religious movement.

With religion recently getting a bad name and people not flocking to churches like they once did, as well as churches going up on the auction block, no wonder people are losing their religious values!

We must retain our core values  in not only religion, but in humanity as well and not let ourselves drown in the quicksand of deceit, lies and propaganda!

The way i look at it, the leaders of tomorrow and not coming from today, and it can be seen all around us.

With lack of communication, and no personal contact with people other than smartphones and texting, the youth of today somehow to me, are not going to lead us into the future.

Without personal contact and the ability to act independently, as well as no prior interest on what the country of Canada was based on, we are in a quagmire with our youth.

With so much violence in the media and bombarded by pics and news of Justin Beiber, John Travolta, Brad Pitt and so on, are people really interested in religion?

Somehow the leaders of Christianity have to develop a plan to get the masses back into the pews, and for people to start donating a small piece to the resurrection of religion once again!

RAY: Man was made with a God given void that he must fill. Pascal is the originator of that idea and I think he is right. Man looks for a religion to follow. God provides one that leads to eternal life. Man tends toward a religion that will lead to eternal regret according to the prophet Daniel. Technically according to the Bible everyone will exist forever but the quality of existance is described as one of either eternal life or eternal regret.

Daniel 12 - 2 And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall 
awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt. (KJV)

Man is so religious that even in the attempt to deny the religion that God has laid out he makes a religion out of science when he puts his trust in Evolution and its closely related Secular Humanism beliefs. Even the  modern belief in Psychology as offering answers is a religion that people follow. Atheists are also fighting to be recognized as a religion and they evangelize aggressively. And all the various cults such as Islam, Russelism, Mormanism, Scientology are all attempts to form a religion which is in oposition to the faith that God reveals about Himself which will lead to the everlasting life spoken of by the Prophet Daniel.

You raise a good point that there are many versions of the English Bible to choose from. There are actually over 160 English versions to choose from currently. However there is no point in discussing which Bible you should read if you don’t think you should read any version. That is where many people are at today.  In our upcomming program we should discuss why we should read the Bible in the first place and why it is a book that is true. What makes it different from every other book? I hope that we will in future programs also start to examine the quesiton of which version of the English Bible should be avoided and which ones are the ones you should be using.

I would like to encourage our readers to speak up and let us know what they are thinking.  Please post your comments on this post as to what kinds of topics you would like to see us cover related to our theme of “Truth is what matters”.

Without Jesus there is no absolute truth

RAY: At this website we hope to directly engage folks regarding things in which worldviews collide. Jesus said

“I am the way the truth and the life”. (John 14.6, SKJV)

Truth seems to be part of the invitation appeal being made by Jesus. It is said of Christ by the Apostle Paul that

“God our saviour desires that all men might be saved and to come to the 
knowledge of the truth”. (1 Tim 2.3-4, SKJV)

It makes sense to us that the world in general is leaning toward the idea that there is no absolute truth because for the most part the world is becoming increasingly affected by the false philosophy of Secular Humanism. The secular humanist cannot be confident in his ability to know the truth because truth does not exist without a knowledge of God and the world is increasingly rejecting the God of creation, our Lord Jesus Christ.

“In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God, 
and all things that are made were made by Him. ... The Word became flesh 
and dwelt among us.” (John 1.1-3,14, SKJV - available at www.bibledoor.com)

Secular Humanism has taught today’s generation that Evolution is responsible for creation not Jesus. It has taught that there is no absolute truth because it is teaching there is no God. If God is truth which Jesus claimed He is then there is no truth if there is no Jesus in a persons life. At least for the person lacking the experience of Jesus there is no truth.

Fallacies of Evolution: A Series of Three Lectures
Evolution is not accepted by all scientists and much less by all scholars; it is admittedly an unproven theory; it is by its own principles unscientific, unphilosophical, unchristian, and simply a rehash of the old teachings of chance garbed in scientific terms. No single case, in the theoretical and popular use of the term, has ever been shown, and there is no known cause which actuates it. …. it is flatly in opposition to the teachings of the Bible and destructive of all Christian faith; that it had its beginnings in heathenism and takes its ending in atheism. … The craze of the last half century is little more than a recrudescence of a philosophy which has divided the opinion of men from the earliest ages. In both Egyptian and East India mythology, the world and all things in it were evolved from an egg; and so in the Polynesian myths. … “Dr. Etheridge, of the British Museum, one of England’s most famous experts in fossilology, has passed the following criticism upon evolution: ‘In all this great museum there is not a particle of evidence of transmutation of species. Nine-tenths of the talk of evolutionists is sheer nonsense, not founded on observation and wholly unsupported by fact. This museum is full of proofs of the utter falsity of their views.’ ”

John D. Charles, Fallacies of Evolution: A Series of Three Lectures, 11,14,16-17 (Scottdale, PA: Mennonite Publishing House, 1917).

What the Bible says about man’s deception and God’s desire that we know the truth
2 Thes. 2 – . 3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there first comes the Apostasy [falling away], … 9 … according to the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, 10 and with all deception of unrighteousness in those who perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 11 And for this reason God shall send them a strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: 12 that they all might be judged [damned] who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness. (SKJV)

1 Tim. 6 – 20 … keep that which is committed to your(s) trust, avoiding dishonourable and vain babblings, and oppositions of science (knowledge) falsely so called: 21 which some asserting have erred concerning the faith. (SKJV)

1 Tim. 2 – 3 … God our Saviour; 4 … desires all men to be saved, and to come to a knowledge of the truth. (SKJV – Available at www.bibledoor.com)

Evolution and Secular Thinking

RAY: For this week’s show we had Dr. Harold McCarthy joined us for an invigorating conversation which touched on the Ontario provincial government Dalton McGuinty’s non-constitutional opinion that he is Supreme and not the Roman Catholic church regarding what is taught in the Catholic School Boards of Ontario. We also discussed how the widespread common belief in Evolution drives secular thinking today. We are going to have Harold back next week so that we can continue this most interesting conversation that we started with him.

Part 1

Part 2

We are not planning to have live calling in for this show at this time. We hope to interact with those that wish to leave their comments at the website after each show. Let us know your opinions. We’d like to hear from you. You will see a Follow button on the left side of the screen that you can register to follow the conversation. Comment on occasion as well. Join in on the conversation.

Ray Luff,
