Evolution’s Four Fatal Flaws – Dr. Heinz Lycklama @ Logos Sanctuary
Jan 2 @ 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm

EvolutionAchillesHeels  LucyReconstruction


Description: It has become abundantly clear that evolutionary thinking is not based on scientific evidence. This lecture offers four major challenges to the “theory” of Evolution. 1) (Macro) Evolution has never been observed. It takes a giant leap in faith to get from (micro) evolution, which has been observed, to (macro) evolution. 2) No credible transitional fossils have been identified in the 150 years since Darwin wrote “Origins of Species.” Evolution did not happen. 3) Life can/did not originate from non-life by random chance. Evolution can/will not happen. 4) Evolution is in conflict with the Second Law of Thermodynamics. Evolution in fact is impossible. Evolution is a philosophy and a belief system, not science.


Heinz 4Speaker: Dr. Heinz Lycklama earned a Bachelor’s degree in Engineering Physics and a Ph. D. degree in experimental Nuclear Physics from McMaster University in Canada in 1965 and 1969 respectively. Since then he has worked in the telecommunications and computer software industries at Bell Telephone Laboratories in NJ and at Interactive Systems Corporation in CA.

Being challenged in his Christian faith by what he was taught in university in the 1960’s, Dr. Lycklama has always maintained an active interest in the Creation vs. Evolution controversy. He has developed a series of lectures on Creation vs. Evolution and Christian Apologetics over the years and presented the material in Sunday school classes, to college students, during church services, at Bible Schools, and other venues in Europe, Asia, Africa and North America. With his knowledge of the Bible and science, he has continued to develop and present new material in these subject areas. More on Dr. Lycklama & his lectures at www.heinzlycklama.com/messages.

Evangelicalism’s Postmodern Apostasy: Rising to the Challenge in Our Midst – Eric Barger @ Atonement Free Lutheran Church
Jan 22 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

EmergentApostasyToday, in an effort to redefine Christianity, alarming numbers of popular yet apostate “evangelical” leaders known as “The Emerging Church Movement” are abandoning historic and biblical standards.

This unscriptural, even deadly movement is part of the predicted “great falling away” of 2 Thessalonians 2:3 as Emergent leaders now proclaim that the Church has failed in its mission, that doctrine is irrelevant and that the very basis of Christian thinking has always been faulty. In this seminar, Eric defines Emergent thinking and terms, concisely exposing the leaders and errors of the Emergent Church.


EricBarger After spending two decades immersed in the world as a record producer, rock musician, drug addict, and New Ager, Eric Barger is now widely recognized in the area of Christian Apologetics and Discernment Ministry.

He is the author of numerous books, including the best-seller From Rock to Rock, Entertaining Spirits Unaware: The End-Time Occult Invasion (with co-author David Benoit) and Disarming the Powers of Darkness. He has produced dozens of videos detailing various aspects of the Cults, the Occult, World Religions, Current Events, Bible Prophecy, and today’s Entertainment Industry all in the light of a biblical worldview.

After hosting his own weekly radio program heard nationally, Eric now serves as the co-host of Understanding The Times with Jan Markell heard currently on over 800 stations. Through the years Eric has been a featured guest on hundreds of Christian and secular programs.

Through his writing, video productions, media appearances, and the Take A Stand! Seminar series, Eric has sought to refute unscriptural ecumenism, universalism, the curious normalization of Mormonism, Islam, New Age philosophy, and other aberrant religious systems inside Christianity. However, no matter what the topic, the goal has been as our mission motto declares: “to see the Lost Saved and the Church Changed by the Power of Jesus Christ!

Current Challenges To The Church – Eric Barger @ Atonement Free Lutheran Church
Jan 23 @ 9:00 am – 12:00 pm

In this Mini-Conference on Current Challenges to The Church, Eric brings two seminars on how the church is being challenged by false teaching, and on how we can and must answer these challenges.

ChallengesChurchThe first seminar at 9:00 AM is on The Real Jesus vs. The Counterfeits.

Mormonism, Jehovah’s Witnesses, Christian Science, The New Age Movement – they ALL speak of a “Jesus.” However, no matter how sincere they may be, those following a “different Jesus” are without a Savior and heading for eternal disaster.

This timely message holds important apologetic insight to help you identify the imposters and most importantly, it will help you defend the historic view of the authentic Biblical Jesus.


New Age or Not TITLE SLIDE 12-2015The second seminar at 10:30 AM is on New Age or Not: What Difference Does It Make?

With another major election year looming just ahead, Christians need to weigh whether New Age spiritualism or occult practices matters when it comes to our elected officials. Perhaps we should learn from history just how God dealt with Israel during the reign of evil kings? This is information you won’t hear on the evening news!

Perilous Times and Signs of the Times – Eric Barger @ First Baptist Church of Arlington
Jan 24 @ 9:00 am – 12:00 pm

Eric Barger, Founder and President of Take A Stand Ministries, will be with us on Sunday morning, January 24th during the Sunday School hour and the Worship Service.

perilous_times_nowDuring the Sunday School hour at 9:00 AM, Eric delivers a message on Preparing For Perilous Times.

The days ahead may well afford remarkable opportunities to minister to the lost bringing many to Christ. But how will the Church respond? Jesus calls us to “go into all the world” but have we developed an unwavering biblical mindset for future troubled times? Don’t allow the spirit of fear to sidetrack you! Prepare your heart now to be a victor – not a victim – when it counts most.


SignsOfTheTimesDuring the Worship Service at 10:30 AM, Eric delivers a message on Ten Reasons Why Jesus is Returning Soon.

Fulfilled Bible Prophecy is the focus here, in particular the extraordinary volume of direct prophetic fulfillments in modern times.

Consider that 2500 years ago the men of the tribe of Issachar knew the signs around them and how to respond (I Chron. 12:32). Stressing the importance of understanding the times, Jesus Himself chastised the Jewish leaders for an ignorance of the signs in their day (Matt. 16:1-3).

Now, the voluminous nature of the signs indicate that the return of Jesus, our “Blessed Hope,” is surely just ahead! Believers cannot afford ignorance during these exciting days. Do you know the signs?

Amazing Animal Designs – Chris Ashcraft @ Atonement Free Lutheran Church
Feb 26 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

Amazing Animal Designs That Inspire Technology

 

animalsWhat would the Earth be like without animals? They are indeed a very special part of the creation that provides endless fascination and brings much love into our lives. Previously unknown animals are discovered each year and the complicated world of these creatures has been made clearer by recent scientific discoveries. This presentation will focus on the amazing abilities of animals that are often a source of inspiration to engineers. Humans have long practiced biomimicry in an attempt to glean the ingenuity behind biological designs, and in doing so testify to the creative power of our Father in heaven.


Chris_Ashcraft

Chris Ashcraft is a Christian educator employed as high school science teacher at Cedar Park Christian Schools, and adjunct professor at Northwest University. Chris has also worked in plant biotechnology. He was a research technician at the Cotton Fiber Production Laboratory at Texas Tech University, then at the Plant Transformation Facility at Oklahoma State University, and lastly was the Plant Transformation Specialist for EDEN Bioscience in Bothell, Washington.

He obtained a Bachelor of Science in biology from Wayland Baptist University in 1989, a Master of Science in biology from Texas Tech University in 1996, a Master of Education from the University of Washington in 2008, and a Master is Teaching Math and Science from Seattle Pacific University in 2012.

Chris moved from research science into the teaching profession to serve God in Christian education. His decision was motivated by the impact that secular science is having on people of faith. Today, close to 50% of Christian students lose their belief in God while attending secular schools. This tendency could be lessened if the Church was better equipped to defend the authority of Biblical teachings (1 Peter 3:15). To be prepared for these challenges, it is important that Churches provide regular educational programs on creation and other Bible Apologetics.

What is the Origin of the Grand Canyon? – Michael Oard @ Atonement Free Lutheran Church
Feb 26 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

GrandCanyonThe origin of the Grand Canyon has been a huge mystery for mainstream scientists for over 150 years. This is demonstrated right away in this talk. Then the talk goes into the two creationists hypotheses for the origin of the Grand Canyon. It shows that the post-Flood dam-breach hypothesis, supposedly caused when 2 to 3 lakes ponded east of Grand Canyon by the draining Flood waters, breached several hundreds of years after the Flood. There are many problems with this hypothesis, two of which seem fatal. The second creationist hypothesis is more likely and that is the Grand Canyon was carved late in the Flood by rapid channelized erosion. Evidence for this is presented as well as how each segment of the Grand Canyon can be carved by the draining, channelized Floodwater.


Oard-pict

Michael Oard earned his B.S. and M.S. degrees in atmospheric science from the University of Washington. For six years he was a research meteorologist at the University of Washington, and has published several research articles in journals and technical monographs of the American Meteorological Society.

Our Privileged Planet – Dr. Heinz Lycklama @ Cedar Park Church
Mar 2 @ 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm

MW-GalaxyAnthropic


Our Privileged Planet

The attributes of planet Earth, and its location in the universe, make human life possible, and the means to observe the universe around us. Our planet (Earth) is uniquely situated in our solar system, our galaxy (Milky Way), and in the universe. We take a look at what Secular scientists have found in their search for signs of life on other planets in the universe.

We conclude that Earth was carefully designed for our well being.  This is based on our analysis of 1) design principles, 2) the precise fine-tuned parameters of the earth, our galaxy, and the universe, 3) the laws of science, nature, and logic, and 4) the probability of finding life on a planet.  The evidence points to an Intelligent Designer and Creator, the God of the Bible.


Heinz 4About the Speaker: Dr. Heinz Lycklama earned a Bachelor’s degree in Engineering Physics (1965) and a Ph. D. degree in experimental Nuclear Physics (1969) from McMaster University in Canada.

In 1992 Dr. Lycklama formed Open Systems Technology Associates (OSTA) and offers his technology management consulting services to various start-ups in the high technology industry. In 2013 Heinz founded the Apologetics Forum to help equip believers in the defense of The Faith.

Being challenged in his Christian faith by what he was taught in university in the 1960’s,  Dr. Lycklama has always maintained an active interest in the Creation vs. Evolution controversy.

Are Humans and Apes Cousins? – Mike Riddle @ Bellevue Church of Christ
Mar 17 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

DNA-RNAWe examine what the Bible says about human life. We give some basis background about what is DNA – the code of life. We check to see how similar is human and chimp DNA without the hype. We examine the claim that humans have mostly “junk” DNA, which would imply evolutionary baggage. We check the possibility that apes might evolve into humans by using the only tools it has – chance mutations and natural selection – what would it take to do this?

Battle for the Next Generation – Mike Riddle @ Atonement Free Lutheran Church
Mar 18 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

NextGenWhy do so many Christian youth lack confidence in the Bible? The answer: the world has out-smarted the church and is out-educating the church. The world is providing answers to questions students have about life and origins. Is there a solution? Yes! God has given us the instructions for how to equip our youth to stand firm. The church has ignored these instructions. Mike Riddle discusses the following:

A. Three truths from God’s Word.

  1. The Bible teaches that God is the Creator of all things.
  2. The Bible teaches that God determines what is right.
  3. The Bible teaches we should train our children according to God’s ways.

B. The heart of the matter: The battle for the next generation

  • The state of Christian education
  • Knowledge and Hosea 4:6
  • The hard facts
  • The plan of action (2 Timothy 2:2)
  • Isaiah 6:8 (Lord, send me)

Answering Recent Attacks on the Jesus of the Bible – Dr. Phil Fernandes @ Atonement Free Lutheran Church
Apr 22 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

Answering Recent Attacks on the Jesus of the Bible


HistoricalJesusIn an age of uncertainty, can we still have confidence in the Jesus found in the Bible? Can we trust the New Testament text we have today? How do we know that Jesus of Nazareth was not just another myth or legend? Why aren’t the Gnostic writings in the New Testament? Why were they left out of the New Testament canon? Dr. Fernandes will respond to these recent arguments against the true Jesus of the Bible. He will argue that, contrary to the writings of Bart Ehrman and the wild speculation of critical New Testament scholars, we can trust the New Testament text and its portrait of Jesus. Strong evidence will also be provided that Jesus actually existed—He is not a mere legend that the early church borrowed from pagan myths. Finally, it will be argued that the early church was right to reject adding the Gnostic writings to the New Testament canon.


PhilFernandesDr. Phil Fernandes is the senior pastor of Trinity Bible Fellowship and the president of the Institute of Biblical Defense. Fernandes founded the Institute of Biblical Defense in 1990 to help train Christians in their defense of the faith. He also teaches Bible, philosophy, and world religions at Crosspoint Academy and the Gateway School of Ministry in Bremerton, WA. He has completed doctoral work in both philosophy of religion (Greenwich University) and theological studies (Columbia Evangelical Seminary). He has authored several books dealing with the defense of the Christian faith. Many lectures/debates/sermons are available on his website.

The Geology of Israel – Patrick Nurre @ Atonement Free Lutheran Church
May 20 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

The Geology of Israel


TheGeologyOfIsraelDescription: Many people are somewhat familiar with the geology of the Grand Canyon. But did you know that Israel has its version too? It is called, The Grand Canyon of Israel. Everyone knows that Israel is mostly limestone and sandstone, right? Did you know that Israel has a significant amount of volcanic geology too? In my talk on the Geology of Israel, we will explore some of the significant geological formations in Israel and how they relate to the Creation and the Genesis Flood. Israel is a wonderful place to visit for the Biblical history, but it is a tremendous school of learning for study of Biblical Geology too.


patrick nurre 2

Speaker: Patrick Nurre was trained in the secular view of geology. Over the past 40 years he has been actively involved in the Creation/Evolution issue in the field of geology. He has spoken to hundreds of college students, and is a popular speaker at many conventions and home school conferences. In 2005, Patrick created Northwest Treasures to provide opportunities to study geology from a Biblical perspective. In the fall of 2012, he opened the Geology Learning Center, a geology museum/educational center located in Lynnwood, WA. Patrick leads field trips each year to many geological sites including his annual field trip to Yellowstone Park in August.

His web site is at www.northwestrockandfossil.com (Northwest Treasures).

Darwinian Pseudoscience – Dr. Heinz Lycklama @ Rivercrest Community Church
May 22 @ 5:00 pm – 6:30 pm

Darwinian Pseudoscience

HaeckelsEmbryos  WhereAreTheFossils


Description: Secular scientists claim that Evolution is a fact. They even go so far as to say “Evolution Explains Everything.” But can this be verified by empirical science? We examine some of the secular science statements made in the last few years in which these scientists propose new natural explanations for 1) the origin of our universe, 2) the origin of first life, and 3) the origin of complex life (Darwinian Evolution). We think of Evolution, Creation, and Intelligent Design when it comes to origins. The doubts that Darwin expressed about his theory more than 150 years ago in his book on “The Origin of Species” have still not been resolved in favor of Evolution. Secular scientists have now resorted to pseudoscience in their attempts to rescue the Theory of Evolution and explain origins. In this lecture we focus on the pseudoscience put forth by the Neo-Darwinists in the area of the origin of complex life.

More on Pseudoscience …


Heinz 4Speaker: Dr. Heinz Lycklama earned a Bachelor’s degree in Engineering Physics (1965) and a Ph. D. degree in experimental Nuclear Physics (1969) from McMaster University in Canada. Since then he has worked in the telecommunications and computer software industries at Bell Telephone Laboratories in NJ and at Interactive Systems Corporation in CA – as an individual contributor and in management positions. In 1992 Dr. Lycklama founded Open Systems Technology Associates (OSTA) to offer his technology management consulting services to various start-ups in the high technology industry. In 2013 Heinz founded the Apologetics Forum to help equip believers in the defense of The Faith.

Being challenged in his Christian faith by what he was taught in university in the 1960’s,  Dr. Lycklama has always maintained an active interest in the Creation vs. Evolution controversy. He has developed a series of lectures on Creation vs. EvolutionChristian Apologetics, and Biblical Worldview over the years and presented the material in Sunday school classes, to college students, during church services, at Bible Schools, and other venues in Europe, Asia, Africa and North America. With his knowledge of the Bible and science, Dr. Lycklama has continued to develop and present new material in these subject areas.

Evolution’s Four Fatal Flaws – Dr. Heinz Lycklama @ Atonement Free Lutheran Church
Jun 24 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

Evolution’s Four Fatal Flaws

EvolutionAchillesHeels LucyReconstruction


Description: It has become abundantly clear that evolutionary thinking is not based on scientific evidence. This lecture offers four major challenges to the “theory” of Evolution. 1) (Macro) Evolution has never been observed. It takes a giant leap in faith to get from (micro) evolution, which has been observed, to (macro) evolution. 2) No credible transitional fossils have been identified in the 150 years since Darwin wrote “Origins of Species.” Evolution did not happen. 3) Life can/did not originate from non-life by random chance. Evolution can/will not happen. 4) Evolution is in conflict with the Second Law of Thermodynamics. Evolution in fact is impossible. Evolution is a philosophy and a belief system, not science.

Can You Believe The Bible? – Vince LaPoint @ Atonement Free Lutheran Church
Jul 22 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

Can You Believe the Bible?


HolyBibleDescription: When the speaker first began to consider the truth of the Bible, he asked two questions: Is the Bible the Word of God? And Is the Bible Still the Word of God (or did it get corrupted along the way)? Our young people still ask these questions as do people who are not familiar with the evidences for Christianity. This talk will explore these questions in a way that we can remember and share with others. The Bible clearly was manually copied time and time again. How did the copyists make sure their copies were accurate? How do we know what the original manuscripts said when we do not have them any more and there are portions of the copies that may have been altered or lost?

Is there extra-biblical support for the Scriptures? Do Archaeology and History support the events recorded in the Bible? What about Biblical Prophecy? Is it accurate? How is Biblical Prophecy different from that of Nostradamus and other infamous prognosticators? And finally, if the Bible is true and lives are miraculously changed by God as the Bible promises, do we find evidence that this is true? Come hear some of the accounts of the almighty God miraculously interacting in the lives of everyday people.


VinceLaPoint Speaker: Vince LaPoint was not raised a Christian. During his upbringing, he was introduced to naturalism, astrology, witchcraft, eastern mysticism, and various forms of organized religion. In school, he pursued math and science and has spent the last 25+ years in the high-tech industry. He is now convinced from the empirical evidence, not just blind faith, that the Bible is the true and reliable Word of God. This message will explore some of the evidence that Vince considered.

Vince now attends Calvary Chapel Eastside in Bellevue, WA and is involved in ministry there. He actively mentors (disciples) young adults, addressing the concerns that our next generation is wrestling with. With his passion for apologetics and creationism, his door is always open for those who come by his place in pairs and you might find him in spiritual conversations in restaurants and other locations. Vince is a member of the Creation Association of Puget Sound. He frequents evolutionist and atheist gatherings to engage in probing dialog. He is an active member of The Gideons International, taking advantage of the opportunities to share the testimonies of God’s work around the world in churches, even as they distribute Scriptures locally and around the world.

Science and Humanism: The Consequences of Bad Ideas – Bruce Barton @ Atonement Free Lutheran Church
Aug 26 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

Science and Humanism: The Consequences of Bad Ideas


HumanismDescription: Evolutionists charge that creationism has hindered science, and that “no real scientist believes in creation.”  Yet history shows just the opposite: Many of the greatest scientific discoveries have been by scientists who believed in God as Creator.  On the other hand, science based upon evolutionary assumptions has resulted in much wasted research money, and ideas that are now in total disrepute.  Additionally, evolutionary thinking leaves a trail of hopelessness and despair, and ideas that have been devastating to humanity, even resulting in the deaths of millions of people.

Endeavoring to “think God’s thoughts after Him,” as did astronomer Johann Kepler, not only results in more reliable scientific methods and results, but provides us with a positive outlook on life and hope for the future.

In this presentation we show some of the consequences of ideas based upon evolutionary assumptions, and contrast them with the great advances in science made by Bible-believing scientists.


BruceBartonSpeaker: Bruce Barton has degrees in meteorology and theology, with studies in engineering and graduate work in atmospheric sciences. Mr. Barton was an instrumentation engineer in R&D for Weyerhaeuser Company until retirement. He has a broad background as a teacher and speaker to groups of all ages in a wide range of subjects including science and technology, aviation, and Bible topics, particularly apologetics. Bruce has been speaking on the Creation/Evolution controversy for over ten years, especially to homeschool groups. He continues to give seminars and lead field trips for them. Bruce also serves on the Board of Directors for CAPS.

First Baptist Church of Ferndale, WA – Sunday School Hour

CellPartsDescription: Life consists of material (matter & energy) as well as non-material parts (information). We discover the similarity in the nature of information, machines and programs in writing systems, computer systems, and living systems Each requires a design, and therefore a designer.  This similarity helps us to explain why life did not, does not, and will not start from non-life by chance. Science and the Bible agree on this.

The information and the programs running in the human cell provide evidence that we were created by an Intelligent Being (God) and did not get here through the process of evolution. Living organisms require information, complexity, and design. These all require an intelligent designer.

Why The Bible Is Unique

First Baptist Church of Ferndale, WA – Worship Service

HolyBibleOver300HolyBooks  MoreHolyBooks 


2 Tim. 3:16, All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness.


Description: Religions are based on their holy book(s.) The Christian faith is based on the Bible. Is the Bible just another religious book or is it the Word of God? The Bible claims to be God-breathed. Let us give you seven reasons why we believe the Bible is indeed God’s Word:

  1. Direct Claims of the Bible
  2. Perfect Unity of the Bible
  3. Reliable Transmission of the Bible
  4. Unique Teachings of the Bible
  5. Historical Accuracy of the Bible
  6. Scientific Accuracy of the Bible
  7. Fulfilled Prophecy of the Bible

The Bible is like no other book in the world. It provides many sound evidences and convincing proofs that it is God’s Word. The Bible is authoritative in all matters that it addresses; it is infallible, inerrant, complete and final. It is sufficient for our needs, it will accomplish what it promises, and it provides the assurance of our salvation.

The information and the programs running in the human cell provide evidence that we were created by an Intelligent Being (God) and did not get here through the process of evolution. Living organisms require information, complexity, and design. These all require an intelligent designer.

Islam and God’s Judgment in the Last Days – Shahram Hadian @ Lakewood New Hope Community Church of the Nazarene
Sep 22 @ 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm

Islam and God’s Judgment in the Last Days

Description: We are seeing Islam take over Europe, and now we are witnessing the unthinkable here in America! Our government, our media, many of our elected officials, and our education system are surrendering to Islam.

But perhaps the most shocking development is the tragic reality of certain Christian leaders and church groups surrendering to Islam! They are blindly promoting the interfaith ecumenical heresy and advocating the invasion of America at the hands of thousands of Muslim refugees, despite well documented risks.

The question is “Why?”

  • Why are so many people deceived by Islam and its true agenda?
  • Why is there such blatant spiritual deception?
  • Could this be a part of God’s judgment?

In this presentation, Shahram will expose Islam as an anti-Christ spirit that is deeply anti-Semitic, and in denial of every major tenet of Christianity. He will also detail Bible prophecy and how it identifies Islam and Islamic nations in the last days. Finally, Shahram will uncover Islam’s end times eschatology, which should be very shocking!


Speaker: Shahram Hadian speaks around the nation with a heart to awaken America, and especially the church. As a Christian pastor and former Muslim, he is deeply grieved over Christian pastors and missional leaders promoting the false gospel of Chrislam in their effort to be culturally sensitive to Muslims.

Shahram was born in Iran and came to America with his family at the age of 7 to escape an oppressive Islamic regime. He is a proud US citizen. He experienced a transformational life change when he committed his life to Jesus Christ in 1999. He has served his local community as a pastor, police officer, teacher and coach and was a candidate for WA State Governor in 2012.

In the past several years, he has spoken to various groups around North America, including legislators, law enforcement, civic groups, churches, and concerned citizens.

More information on this presentation can be found here. A Flyer for posting can be found here.

The Bible vs. the Quran – Shahram Hadian @ Atonement Free Lutheran Church
Sep 23 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

Bible-vs-QuranDescription: This lecture briefly covers the Bible in its authenticity, multiple witnesses being given the revelation, and manuscript evidence. The majority of the time is spent exposing the lack of authenticity in the Quran, including no other eye witnesses to the revelation given to Muhammad, and no original manuscript evidence. Also, we go through internal contradictions in the Quran, external contradictions to history and science, abrogation, and contradictions to Biblical stories.

Answering Islam Mini-Conference – Shahram Hadian @ Grace Academy
Sep 24 @ 8:30 am – 12:30 pm

Answering Islam Mini-Conference


AnsweringIslamIn this Mini-Conference on Answering Islam, Pastor Shahram Hadian, who is a former Muslim from Iran, lays out a biblical response on exposing Islam while encouraging believers to seek a Christ-like heart for Muslim people who are lost without the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. Shahram brings three seminars:

  1. Unveiling The True Face of Islam
  2. The Influence of Islam in American Politics & The Muslim Refugee Agenda
  3. Answering Islam & Sharing Christ With Muslims

UnveilingIslam

In the first seminar Hadian speaks on Unveiling The True Face of Islam. True Islam, as modeled by the Islamic prophet Muhammad, is what we are witnessing in the actions of jihadists like the Muslim Brotherhood, ISIS, Al Qaeda, Hamas, Hezbollah and their many supporters. This Islam is not radicalism or an aberration. This Islam is the true, fanatical, fundamental Islam practiced by Muhammad and his followers.

This presentation flies  in the face of political correctness, the false label of “Islamophobia.”


IslamInfluence

In the second seminar Hadian speaks on The Influence of Islam in American Politics & The Muslim Refugee Agenda.  Shahram’s heart is to awaken America and especially people of faith to the true goal and agenda of Islam. In his presentations, he shares the fact that Islam is a political ideology focused on establishing oppressive Islamic Law (Shari’ah) in every country, including America.

Shahram outlines why radical Islam is the greatest threat to peace, and practically outlines Shari’ah Law. This is a 7th century desert law codified from the teachings of the Qu’ran and the Hadiths to control EVERY aspect of a person’s life living under Shari’ah. Shahram addresses topics such as:

  • Obama’s Islamic agenda and propaganda
  • The true meaning and application of Jihad
  • The “fallacy of a peaceful Islam”
  • The two “houses of Islam:” Dar al Harb & Dar al Islam (which one is America in?)
  • How Shari’ah law violates the 1st Amendment
  • The Islamization of Europe

The goal of Islamic groups is to see America become an Islamic “Caliphate” state and live under Shari’ah Law.


SharingWithMuslims

In the third seminar, Hadian  speaks on Answering Islam & Sharing Christ With Muslims. How can we stand against and fight our enemies if we are unwilling to acknowledge who our enemy is? Our enemies are not individual Muslims who are themselves victims of Islam. Our enemy is, however, Islam. Islam is bent on world domination under one language, one “religion,” and one law.

How can we share Christ with our Muslim neighbors?

It is time for Christians to wake up and be bold with their declaration of the Gospel. We must denounce the interfaith ecumenical movement and the “social-gospel,” which are perversions of the True Gospel of Jesus Christ. We share no “common word” or “common god” with Muslims, therefore our focus must be on contrasting the hope and Truth of the Bible with the lies of Islam.

Islam, God’s Judgment and Chrislam Exposed – Shahram Hadian @ Summit Park Bible Church
Sep 25 @ 9:15 am – 12:00 pm

Sunday, September 25th:

Worship Service @ 10:30 AM:  Shahram Hadian, Pastor and former Muslim, will be with us on Sunday morning, September 25th, during the Sunday School hour at 9:15 AM and the Worship Service at 10:30 AM.

During the Worship Service, Shahram delivers a message on Islam and God’s Judgment in the Last Days.

IslamJudgment

We are seeing Islam take over Europe, and now we are seeing America, our government, our media, many of our elected officials, and our education system surrendering to Islam.

But perhaps the most shocking thing is to see certain Christian leaders and organizations surrendering to Islam!

  • The question is “Why?”
  • Why are so many people deceived by Islam?
  • What is behind this ideology?

Islam is an anti-Christ spirit that is deeply anti-semitic, and denies every major tenet of Christianity. In this presentation, Shahram goes through what the Bible has to say about the beginning of the division between Jews and Arabs, and also addresses what the Bible has to say about Islam and Islamic nations in the last days.

Shahram covers Islam’s end times eschatology, which is very shocking!

  • Audio recording of sermon can be found here.

Sunday School @ 9:15am: Shahram shares his testimony of how he became a Christian, and an abbreviated version of his presentation on “Chrislam Exposed – The Seductive Lie of a Common God Between Christianity & Islam.”

ChrislamExposed

 

 

 

 

Shahram’s message answers these questions:

  • Do Christians and Muslims worship the same God?
  • Is Allah the same God as Yahweh?
  • Can you be both Christian and Muslim at the same time?
  • Is the Divine Jesus of the Bible the same as Isa in the Quran?
  • Should Christians be reaching out to Muslims seeking “spiritual reconciliation” with them?
  • Should Christians and Muslims be holding joint worship
    services?
  • Is the Quran equal in authority to the Bible?
  • Should Christians and Muslims seek to merge their religions into a new religion called Chrislam?
  • Should Bible translations be changed to take out the words “Father” and “Son of God” so as not to offend Muslims?
  • How are major Christian missions organizations and pastors promoting an “Islamized Gospel?”

“You can not be a Muslim and a true follower of Jesus Christ. Chrislam not only endangers the hope of salvation for Muslims but threatens to lead many Christians astray from the truth of God’s Word.”

Our Nearest Neighbor, the Moon


mooneclipseDescription: Dr. Don DeYoung, president of the Creation Research Society, gives a lecture on The Moon, Our Nearest Neighbor at 7:00 PM on Thursday, October 13. Several origin theories have been suggested for the moon, none of them convincing, and biblical creation provides a refreshing alternative. Purposes for the moon’s creation include the stability of earth’s seasons. Regarding the age of the moon, crater formation and lunar recession challenge the assumption of a multi-billion year history.

The Shroud of Turin as the Burial Cloth of Jesus? – Dr. John Johnson @ Atonement Free Lutheran Church
Oct 28 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

The Shroud of Turin as the Burial Cloth of Jesus?


Description – The Shroud of Turin has been claimed to be the burial cloth of Jesus Christ since at least the 14th Century. I have studied it as an archaeological item for over 30 years. Few people took it seriously until the intensive scientific investigations in the 20th century showed it was like a photographic negative not created by painting or scorching, linen that could be first Century mid-east weave, had pollen traced to the Mideast, remarkably similar to paintings of Jesus back to the 5th Century, but not before. Moreover, the image and blood stains closely corresponshroud_of_turind to Jewish First Century burial practices, as well as Roman flagellation and crucifixion techniques probably not known to a 14th Century forger.

 

However, in 1988, all this compelling evidence for its being genuine was seemingly trumped by Radiocarbon tests that allegedly “proved” that it was made of cloth woven between AD 1260 and 1390. For the next 17 years I abandoned my studies, in spite of my hunch that it was likely genuine. But in 2005, it was finally definitively shown that the three samples were all taken from the same repaired area of the shroud that had cotton thread, with a dye applied. Later more independent dating tests have been made that compellingly show it is probably far older than the 14th Century.

Besides the dating controversy, we will discuss seeming discrepancies with the Bible, which have caused most protestant Bible scholars (from John Calvin to Josh McDowell) ignore it: It is a graven image; it is just another dubious Catholic relic; the gospels state that Jesus was tied (wrapped?) with linen strips; the man of the shroud has long hair which was forbidden; the man of the shroud has a beard, but prophecies say it was plucked. We will also summarize the other new evidence for its correlation with the Mandylion, the cloth with the faint image of Jesus known from History from Edessa in the 5th Century, then moved to Constantinople in the 10th Century, where it was looted by the Crusader Knights in 1204. It seems likely that the Knights templar preserved it for a century until it was rediscovered in his estate by a lowly widow of one of the Knights after he was executed.

Dr. Johnson’s talk gives a history of the evidence, pro and con, the shroud was considered to be Jesus’ burial cloth. However, valid or not, we remember our faith is based on Jesus Christ, not on a relic.

SpeakerDr. John Johnson has a PhD in Applied Math from the University of California at Berkeley. He retired from Boeing after 31 years, mostly in Aerospace. He has studied and taught Bible archaeology since he was a Biblicjohn_johnsonal Christian in 1980. He has argued for Creation in five college debates, and did a radio debate defending Bible accuracy against prominent skeptic J Ferrell Till. He has long been the President of the Creation Association of Puget Sound (CAPS). He has taught a University of Washington Osher course on math applications in the arts, part of which analyzed historical objects of dubious provenance to establish probability of either a fake or authentic. But sometimes the expert decision has flipped with more careful analysis.

Origins, Life and Information – Dr. Heinz Lycklama @ Heritage Bible Church
Nov 10 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

Origns, Life and Information

Heritage Bible Church in Boise, ID

CellParts

Description: We examine how and where life originated – On earth? In some warm pond as suggested by Darwin? In an ocean vent? By means of self organization? By means of panspermia? By means of directed panspermia? Or was life created according to its kinds by a Designer as described in the first chapter of Genesis? The role of information in living organisms leads us to the inevitable conclusion.

Life consists of material (matter & energy) as well as non-material parts (information). We discover the similarity in the nature of information, machines and programs in writing systems, computer systems, and living systems Each requires a design, and therefore a designer.  This similarity helps us to explain why life did not, does not, and will not start from non-life by chance. Science and the Bible agree on this.

The information and the programs running in the human cell provide evidence that we were created by an Intelligent Being (God) and did not get here through self organization and evolution. Living organisms require information, complexity, and design. These all require an intelligent designer.

Some Like It Hot: Another View To Global Warming – Dr. Larry Vardiman @ Atonement Free Lutheran Church
Nov 18 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

Some Like It Hot: Another View To Global Warming


realistic_global_warming_wide

Description: Since the late 1980s, global warming has been hotly debated, with many arguing that Earth is undergoing potentially catastrophic man-made climate change. Is Earth getting warmer? If such warming is real, is it dangerous? And is it caused by human-produced carbon dioxide (CO2)?

Dr. Vardiman will review the history of the climate change/global warming controversy and offer an alternative view. He believes increases in carbon dioxide in the atmosphere and global warming are real, but the warming is likely caused by changes in solar activity rather than increases in carbon dioxide. He believes only a minor percentage of global warming is due to man’s activities. He further believes that some aspects of climate change are actually beneficial to life on Earth. For example, plants tend to grow faster using less water when higher levels of carbon dioxide are present. Dr. Vardiman will also provide an update to the research by Dr. Jasper Kirkby on the CLOUD Project at the CERN laboratory in Europe. Dr. Kirkby is attempting to find a connection between solar activity and fluctuations in global temperature caused by variation in cloud cover.


Larry VardimanSpeakerDr. Vardiman retired from the Institute for Creation Research in 2012 after 30 years of research, writing, teaching, and speaking on creation. Prior to his full-time ministry in creation science he conducted 15 years of field research in cloud physics and weather modification for the U.S. Department of Interior, the U.S. Air Force, and Colorado State University. He obtained his B.S. in Physics from the University of Missouri at Rolla, a B.S. in Meteorology from St. Louis University, and an M.S. and Ph.D. in Atmospheric Science from Colorado State University. He has written over 30 technical articles, 10 books, and many conference papers. He was Director and Editor of the RATE Project, a study on Radioisotopes and the Age of the Earth. For the past 10 years he has been conducting numerical simulations of climate and weather during the ice age. He used conventional research models and data supplied by NASA and NOAA to study storms enhanced by warm oceans heated through catastrophic events of the Genesis Flood. He continues to conduct limited research, writing, and speaking in the Northwest. Dr. Vardiman lives in WA State, is married to Jeannette, a registered nurse, has 4 children, and 6 grandchildren.

Debunking Evolution

Description: Today’s youth are bombarded with evolution teaching in public schools, planting seeds of doubt that result in many of our youth leaving the faith, with some estimates as high as two-thirds after they start attending college. View the Debunk Evolution Classroom Promo Video on the www.debunkevolution.com website to better understand the challenges faced by our youth:

Helping Equip Believers in Defense of The Faith is the mission of the Apologetics Forum. Genesis Apologetics in Folsom, CA has recently developed a series of six short video-based lessons that debunk the eleven pillars of evolution taught in junior and senior high schools today. The program was designed by experienced professionals and reviewed by scientists at the three leading Creation Ministries in the US: Answers In Genesis (AIG), Institute for Creation Research (ICR), and Creation Ministries International (CMI).

debunking-coverThe training resources for this program consist of a DVD and book on Debunking Evolution, along with a Student Guide. This program helps equip the next Christian generation to stand in the faith by providing them with clear scientific evidence that supports the Genesis account of origins.

Dr. Dan Biddle, President of Genesis Apologetics, is the editor of the book on Debunking Evolution. The authors of the book include David Bassett, Dr. Jerry Bergman, Dr. Daniel BiddleDavid Bisbee, Caleb LePore, Roger Patterson, Pat and Sandy RoyDr. Jonathan Sarfati, Roger Sigler, Dr. Jeffrey Tomkins, and Cornelius van Wingerden.
