Has Science Now Buried God? – Dr. Heinz Lycklama @ Calvary Chapel Westgrove
Jan 7 @ 5:00 pm – 6:00 pm

Has Science Now Buried God?


Description: This talk is based on Dr. John Lennox‘s book, God’s Undertaker: Has Science Buried God?” According to many modern commentators, science has now explained all that we observe in the universe and God is no longer needed. We are told that atheism is the only intellectually tenable position, and any attempt to invoke God as the explanation impedes progress in science. Lennox asks the critical question whether science points to atheism? He shows that theism fits more comfortably with  science than atheism. Science is limited in the scope of its explanations. We conclude that this is not a debate between science and religion, but a debate between two very different worldviews.


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. 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.

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.

Why The Bible Is Unique – Dr. Heinz Lycklama @ Faith Lutheran Church
Feb 17 @ 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm

Why The Bible Is Unique

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.

Darwinian Pseudoscience – Dr. Heinz Lycklama @ Willingdon Church
Feb 18 @ 2:00 pm – 5:00 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.

Geology and The Clash of Worldviews – Chris Ashcraft @ Atonement Free Lutheran Church
Feb 24 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

Geology and The Clash of Worldviews

grand-canyon-stock-photo biblical-geological-model


Description: Secular geologists say there has been no global flood as described in the Bible, but vast layers of rocks provide a monumental testimony to this event and God’s recent judgment of humankind. This presentation provides an introduction to Creation Geology and a characterization of the geological column that is logically derived from the Biblical worldview.

biblical-geological-model

Several important examples are provided that show how strata and canyons can form rapidly, rather than over millions of years. In addition, the secular geologic worldviews are examined to illustrate how historical bias against catastrophism has caused erroneous interpretations of geologic features that are now known to have been formed catastrophically.


Chris_Ashcraft

Speaker: 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 in 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.

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.

A fascinating look at the biblical, historical, and scientific evidence for Creation and the Flood. Since the first showing on Thursday, February 23 was sold out, two special encores have been planned for Thursday, March 2 and Tuesday, March 7. The official trailer (3 minutes) for the movie can be found here. You can find a theater near you by entering your ZIP code here: http://isgenesishistory.com/theaters.  We are happy to recommend this quality film, featuring top notch footage and over a dozen scientists/scholars. The DVD version will be available in April. An official review of the film has been written by CMI’s own Dr. Jonathan Sarfati, author of the Genesis Account, and can be found here: http://creation.com/is-genesis-history-doco-review. Note that Dr. Sarfati will be speaking in the Seattle area, March 1 to 12. We are privileged to be able to hear him during that time.

Invite your friends and family to this incredible movie about Creation and the Flood. These kinds of movies are rarely shown in public theaters. Since there are only two more showings of the movie on Thursday, March 2 and on Tuesday, March 7, 2017, you might want to purchase your ticket(s) early.

The Genesis Account – Dr. Jonathan Sarfati @ Summit Park Bible Church
Mar 9 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

Description: The Genesis Account, a new book by Dr. Jonathan Sarfati, is a classic commentary on Genesis 1–11. It defends the biblical creationist position: creation in six consecutive normal days, death resulting from Adam’s fall, and a globe-covering Flood, and confusion of languages at Babel, and in the process it explains how the rest of the Bible interprets Genesis in the above straightforward manner.

In his book and this video presentation by the same title Dr. Sarfati demonstrates that all doctrines of Christianity begin in Genesis 1–11, and he straightforwardly answers the commonest objections to a plain understanding of these crucial Genesis texts.

Does God exist? How can anyone believe in religion when science has neither a need nor a place for God? Is evolution happening today? If God is a God of love, why do we suffer and die?

Dr. Jonathan Sarfati answers these questions and exposes the bankruptcy of the evolutionary myth. This is an issue that affects everyone. Evolution teaches us there is no need for God, there is no spiritual realm, and there is no afterlife. According to the theory, spirituality is just an evolutionary trick of the mind!

The Bible gives a very different picture about the nature of these things. In this presentation, you will learn how the scientific evidence, when properly understood, confirms the details of the biblical account.


SpeakerDr Sarfati is a dual citizen of Australia and New Zealand. He earned a Ph.D. in physical chemistry from a secular NZ university. Dr Sarfati co-authored papers in mainstream scientific journals including one on high-temperature superconductors published in Nature when he was 22.

Jonathan was a co-founder of an Apologetics Society in New Zealand, then joined Creation Ministries International in Australia in 1996. In 2010, he and his American wife transferred from the Australian office to the USA office near Atlanta.

Dr Sarfati has authored some of the most popular and powerful books on the issues of origins, strongly defending biblical (‘young earth’) creation and refuting the strongest arguments for evolution and millions of years. His first book, Refuting Evolution, has sold half a million copies, making it the best-selling creationist book of all time (apart from the Bible!). His latest and most important book is The Genesis Account, a thorough 800-page theological and scientific commentary on Genesis 1–11.

Jonathan is also a chess master and former New Zealand chess champion, and drew a tournament game with former world champion Boris Spassky. One specialty is playing simultaneous chess games, sometimes ‘blindfold’, i.e. from memory.

Refuting Compromise – Dr. Jonathan Sarfati @ First Baptist Church Arlington
Mar 10 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

 


Description: A six day, young earth understanding of Genesis is the only one that comes from the text itself, which is why the rest of Scripture interprets it that way. Long-age views are a modern aberration that comes from imposing outside ideas of uniformitarian “science” upon the text. See how compromising views render the Bible meaningless to a dying world. You’ll be encouraged and energized to hear there is no need for compromise and that there are answers. The evidence for Creation and the Bible’s account of history is all around us if only we know how to look for it, and Jonathan will show you how to do just that!

The book by the same title, Refuting Compromise by Dr. Jonathan Sarfati, is a comprehensive and resounding refutation of the position of ‘progressive creationist’ Hugh Ross, whose views are causing massive confusion about science and the Bible. The most powerful theological and scientific defense of a straightforward view of Genesis creation ever written. It has recently been updated and expanded.


SpeakerDr Sarfati is a dual citizen of Australia and New Zealand. He earned a Ph.D. in physical chemistry from a secular NZ university. Dr Sarfati co-authored papers in mainstream scientific journals including one on high-temperature superconductors published in Nature when he was 22.

Note: After Dr Sarfati’s presentation we will take a break, followed by an extended one-hour Q&A period during which you will have the opportunity to ask him questions related to Creation, Evolution, Science, the Bible, etc. Most of the questions will be answered using visual aids via Powerpoint. He has written numerous books, articles and pamphlets on all of these topics in his 20+ years in the Creation Ministry.

Design, Deluge & Dilemma – Dr. Jonathan Sarfati @ Calvary Chapel Marysville
Mar 11 @ 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm

 


Description: Dr. Jonathan Sarfati addresses the following issues in his talk on Design, Deluge & Dilemma:

  • Widespread apostasy in young people—not because of lack of evidence, but lack of dissemination of the evidence.
  • Jesus as Creator, as well as Kinsman-Redeemer, meaning that He must be our blood relative.  This means that all humanity must come from Adam, also the ancestor of Jesus, the Last Adam.  Adam’s sin brought death, so Jesus brought Resurrection—Rom. 5 and 1 Cor. 15 make an explicit connection.
  • Since death came through sin, fossil record must post-date Adam.  Explained by Genesis global Flood, which has other evidences.
  • Design in nature, including micro-machines.  Coded information stored on DNA.
  • Goo-to-you evolution requires information increase, but what we see are sorting out already-existing information, natural selection culling information, and mutations corrupting information.

Learning From Catastrophe: Biological Recovery at Mount St. Helens – Dr. Keith Swenson @ Atonement Free Lutheran Church
Mar 24 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

Learning From Catastrophe: Biological Recovery at Mount St. Helens

!Job: 124965, Layout: 1!

!Job: 124965, Layout: 1!


Description: Noah’s Flood left the entire earth biologically devastated. Creationists believe that over the tens, hundreds and thousands of years following the Flood, living organisms recovered, eventually producing the ecosystems seen on the modern earth.  But is such a belief reasonable? Is the biota really that resilient? And if so, by what ecological mechanisms could such remarkable transformation take place?

Since there is no detailed information on biological changes which transpired following the Flood, creationists must look elsewhere for information.  One source is the study of recovery from modern disturbances, such as the 1980 eruption of Mount St. Helens which produced a 230 square mile area of biological devastation termed the blast zone.  The responses of organisms to this eruption have now been intensely studied for over 35 years generating hundreds of articles.

Dr. Keith Swenson shows us this renewal of life in the blast zone, noting the resilience of the creation and suggesting some comparisons between what happened at Mt. St. Helens and what must have occurred globally following the great Flood described in the Bible.


keith-swenson0

Speaker: Dr. Keith Swenson is a retired medical doctor who now teaches courses in biology and geology at Multnomah University in Portland, Oregon. He also served for twenty years as President of Portland’s Design Science Association and was on the board of the Seven Wonders Museum near Mount St. Helens. Keith especially enjoys leading field trips and has taken thousands to Mount St. Helens, the Columbia Gorge, Northwest forests and the Grand Canyon. He co-leads, with Dr. Steve Austin, periodic trips into the “Little Grand Canyon” at Mount St. Helens. Keith has a B.S. in Zoology from the University of Idaho and an M.D. from Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis. He and his wife, Connie, have four grown children.

A good summary of the recovery of the Mount St. Helens area after the devastation of the eruption in May 1980 is described in this article by Swenson and Catchpoole on the creation.com website. The unexpected rapid bounce back provides us insight into how the world recovered from Noah’s Flood.

Paranormal Apologetics – Dr. Phil Fernandes @ Atonement Free Lutheran Church
Apr 28 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

Paranormal Apologetics

ufos

bigfoot


Description: Often, apologists do not answer many of the questions that numerous Americans are asking today about paranormal events. We define paranormal events as “reports of events that seem to defy any natural explanation.” Dr. Fernandes addresses some of the paranormal questions that non-believers are presently asking. Some of these questions include: the true identity of UFOs, bigfoot, ghosts, and haunted houses. Fernandes will also discuss the supposed visitations of Mary and the stigmata (the miraculous appearance of the wounds of Christ)?


Phil Fernandes

Speaker: Dr. 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.

Science Truths in the Bible – Dr. Heinz Lycklama @ Cedar Park Church
May 3 @ 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm

HydrologicCycle  LifeIsInTheBlood


Science Truths in the Bible

Description:We trust the Bible for spiritual truth. Events, people and nations in the Bible have been corroborated by extra-biblical historians. The Bible has been confirmed by prophecy, archaeology, and geography. Do we trust the Bible when it makes scientific statements? There are many biblical references in different disciplines of science. The authors refer to nature and natural processes using everyday language. Their statements are amazingly accurate and often anticipate scientific insights that were not discovered by scientists until the last few centuries. The Bible is authoritative in all matters that it addresses. In fact modern science is founded on the biblical worldview.


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.

Critical Thinking Skills That Disarm Evolutionists – Mike Riddle @ Atonement Free Lutheran Church
May 19 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

 

Description: Evolution is a “theory” that attempts to explain the origin of the cosmos without a creator. Unfortunately, this view is guarded against scrutiny and taught uncritically in our public schools as though it were an absolute fact. Such treatment has led students to view Darwinism as the only accepted explanation for the diversity of life on Earth. This presentation encourages critical thinking about naturalism, examines the “evidence” for the theory of evolution, and in particular describes the evidence that we would expect to  find if evolutionism were true.

  • The critical thinking method
  • Three critical thinking questions
  • A power question
  • Words have meaning: fuzzy words and magic words
  • Red-flag words
  • Why the fossil record refutes evolutionism
  • If evolution is true what should we observe?

Questions that will be answered by Mike include:

  • What is observed evidence for evolution that does not require faith?
  • How much original material in key fossils is actually found vs is fabricated?
  • Does the fossil record refute evolutionism?
  • What are the arguments that demonstrate the fossil record does not support evolution?
  • If evolutionism is true, what evidence would we observe?
  • What question can we use to challenge the pictures of fossils in textbooks?

Learn how to confront the teachings of evolution with questioning techniques. See how and why new discoveries are confounding so many evolutionists and scientists around the world.

What About Global Warming? – Dr. Heinz Lycklama @ Calvary Chapel WestGrove
Jun 3 @ 5:00 pm – 6:00 pm

   


What About Global Warming?

Description: The issue of Global Warming (GW), now referred to as Climate Change (CC), has received a lot of attention in the press.  The UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has issued its Fifth Assessment Report.  The IPCC claims that GW is occurring at a rapid rate, that GW is largely due to the increased burning of fossil fuel, and that we face dire consequences if we don’t cut back on greenhouse gases released into the atmosphere. The Nongovernmental International Panel on Climate Change (NIPCC) has concluded that Nature, not Human Activity, rules the Climate. We explore the science behind these different conclusions.

GW alarmists tell us, in effect, that “the end is near” unless drastic state-imposed restrictions are imposed now on our consumption of CO2 emitting fossil fuels – despite God’s promise to Noah – Gen. 8:22.  Other climate scientists claim that any GW is largely due to natural causes such as sun irradiance,  the El Nino phenomenon in the Pacific Ocean, the Pacific Decadal Oscillation, etc. This raises some legitimate questions – 1) What are the facts? 2) What is the appropriate biblical perspective? 3) Should we be concerned? and 4) Is there another agenda?

A short video produced by The Idea Channel entitled History of Climate Change in Greenland provides a historical perspective on GW.

Heinz has done an independent analysis of the GW issue (see www.heinzlycklama.com/gw) and sent the results of his findings and recommendations to many of the leading climate scientists around the world.

Gen. 8:22, “While the earth remains, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.”


SpeakerDr. 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.

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. As his children reached school age and began to ask questions about what they were taught in school, he became more involved in researching the topic of Creation v. Evolution. He has developed a series of lectures and courses on Creation v. 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. Information on his messages and presentations can be found at www.heinzlycklama.com/messages.

Heinz and his wife Gerda live in Arlington, WA. They were both born in the Netherlands, immigrated to Canada after WWII with their families, married in 1964, and then immigrated to the US in 1969. They have 5 children and 16 grandchildren. Heinz continues to give talks on Creation v. EvolutionChristian Apologetics, and the Biblical Worldview in various venues. Gerda teaches women’s Bible studies in her home, and is an avid quilter – brightening the lives of many an orphan around the world. Heinz and Gerda have traveled internationally on business as well as on missions and teaching trips.

Reversing Secularization of the Church – J.D. Mitchell @ Atonement Free Lutheran Church
Jun 23 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

Reversing Secularization of the Church


jdmitchell-16Description: This talk suggests a path to a reversal of the rampant secularization of the Church. Secularism is the anti-religious (especially anti-Christian) worldview that true knowledge can only be found through rational or empirical means. Secularists live their lives with an orientation toward the present world only, as opposed to the Christian view that life is everlasting.

Much of the acceptance of secularism in the Church is the result of the introduction of biblical compromise (especially theistic evolutionary philosophy) into the Church by theologians and Christian educators. The great mistake these men have made, and continue to make, is to accept and then promote non-scriptural explanations for the geology of the earth. This mistake has allowed for much harmful compromise to fundamental biblical teachings, especially with regard to the history in the Bible. If the biblical history is wrong, then logically, there is no reason to believe any other aspect of its teachings; and there is no reason for the Church to resist the barrage of detrimental secular ideas aimed at it by its Adversary.

Mr. Mitchell’s talk will be a call to all Christians, and especially its theologians and educators, to take a fresh look at the earth’s history using the Biblical Worldview. He will carefully compare the atheistic presuppositions of uniformitarian giant Charles Lyell (that the Church has by and large accepted) to the biblical presuppositions of scriptural geologist George Young (that the Church has mostly ignored). Mr. Mitchell believes that an open-minded study of these presuppositions, along with a look at the actual scientific evidences, will result in a determination that reality only matches the Biblical Worldview.


JDMitchell-266x300Speaker: J.D. Mitchell is a registered professional engineer in Oregon and Washington and has a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Washington. He has also completed his Master of Biblical Studies in Biblical Creation Apologetics from Master’s Graduate School of Divinity.

J.D. is Executive Director of the Institute for Creation Science of Oregon, and speaks and writes regarding the creation versus evolution controversy as a part of his creation science ministry (Creation Engineering Concepts).

How To Interpret Fossils – J.D. Mitchell @ Mazatlan Mexican Restaurant
Jun 24 @ 11:30 am – 2:00 pm

How To Interpret Fossils


DescriptionMr. Mitchell’s presentation will highlight information found in his new book, Fossils: Description & Interpretation – Within a Biblical Worldview. A point of focus will be the foundational ideas upon which the book is based:

  • Most fossils are evidences of a single, year-long, cataclysmic event that took place on the earth some 4,500 years ago (the Genesis Flood).
  • These fossils have great value today because they are a reminder of, and proof of, God’s judgment, power and grace.
  • These fossils are not evidences of many events over hundreds of millions of years that have value today because of their great age and their proof of the macroevolution of life.

In order to emphasize the truth of the book’s foundational ideas, the “18 Facts of Paleontology” will be enlisted to make clear the superiority of the Biblical Worldview over the Secular Worldview. Fossils only make sense to the critical thinker if the vast majority of them are understood to be the result of the global Flood at the time of Noah.

A variety of apologetics and biblical creationist educational materials will be available for sale at the meeting, including the book Fossils: Description & Interpretation. There will also be a number of actual fossils available at the meeting for sale. The book and fossils can be a great help in explaining the true history of the earth to young people.

Science Truths in the Bible – Dr. Heinz Lycklama @ Summit Park Bible Church
Jul 16 @ 9:15 am – 10:15 am

Science Truths in the Bible

Description:We trust the Bible for spiritual truth. Events, people and nations in the Bible have been corroborated by extra-biblical historians. The Bible has been confirmed by prophecy, archaeology, and geography. Do we trust the Bible when it makes scientific statements? There are many biblical references in different disciplines of science. The authors refer to nature and natural processes using everyday language. Their statements are amazingly accurate and often anticipate scientific insights that were not discovered by scientists until the last few centuries. The Bible is authoritative in all matters that it addresses. In fact modern science is founded on the biblical worldview.

Monstrous Problems: Awesome God – Rick Deighton @ Atonement Free Lutheran Church
Jul 28 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

   


Description: Rick Deighton presents an overview of the book of Job, which zooms in on God’s questions to Job in Chapters 37-41 with special emphasis on God’s descriptions of behemoth and leviathan.  From these chapters we can come to a clear understanding of the purpose for this oldest book in our Bible.  Why did God allow Job to suffer so greatly?  God never gave Job a direct answer to that question – but He did give Job powerful object lessons so he saw the answer and fell on his face before our Awesome God.


SpeakerRick Deighton is a graduate of Boise Bible College, Boise, Idaho, and did post-graduate study at Ozark Christian College in Joplin, Missouri.

His studies included mission strategy, expository and evangelistic preaching, personal evangelism, philosophy, and writing techniques. Rick’s articles, tracts, and booklets have been published in English, German, Korean, and Russian.

He has four published books:

  • “Ready to Give an Answer”
  • “Is the Bible Without Any Errors”
  • “Millions of Miracles – The Evolutionist’s Dilemma”
  • “More Than Conquerors in Cultural Clashes”

Rick and his wife, Della, own a lighting company, and Rick is a bi-vocational missionary who works lighting business between mission trips to former Soviet Union nations, primarily Ukraine. Rick and Della are also Northwest representatives of Peace On Earth Ministries, and Rick is an associate evangelist with Reggie Thomas (White Fields Overseas Evangelism.) He is also one of the directors for Northwest Science Museum in Boise, and serves on the promotion team for Mike Riddle’s Creation Training Initiative.

He especially enjoys teaching on apologetics and creation by our Awesome God. “Overseas Outreach” is his primary ministry, and the two legs by which Overseas Outreach moves forward are: Creation Evangelism and Compassion Evangelism.

My Awesome God – Rick Deighton @ Bryant Community Church
Jul 30 @ 10:00 am – 11:30 am

 

 


Description: Years ago A. W. Tozer wrote:  “What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us.”  Wow!  That is powerful.  The purpose for the message, My Awesome God, is to remind us how awesome, amazing, majestic and mighty is our Father in Heaven – yet He loves us unconditionally and is committed to providing for each of us exactly what he or she needs at the right time and in the right way.  Those of us who are in Christ can rest and relax in His loving care in spite of the fact that our country is in turbulence you hear or see daily on news reports.  Psalm 33:8-9 reminds us of Who our Awesome God is.  Satan is a fly speck compared to our God!  “And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.  for whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren.”  Romans 8:28-29 (NKJV).  Let’s keep focused on our Awesome God, rather than the turbulent turmoil!

Evolution, Species and Kinds – Dr. Don Johnson @ Atonement Free Lutheran Church
Aug 25 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

Description: After explaining the difference between micro- and macro- evolution and whether there’s any science for connecting them, the difference between Biblical “kinds” and species will be described.  The basics of neo-Darwinian biology and it’s lack of verifiable evidence will be highlighted, causing thousands of scientists to abandon it. Information science will be highlighted as the biggest obstacle for the naturalistic scenarios, as the reality of millions of biological computers and computer programs in each cell (humans have 100 trillion) have been scientifically verified, with NO naturalistic explanation.  Evolution can be explained as a religion, and science actually supports Biblical insights.


Speaker: Dr. Don Johnson has earned PhD’s in both Computer & Information Sciences from the University of Minnesota and in Chemistry from Michigan State University. He was a senior research scientist and consultant for 15 years, and taught 20 years in universities in Wisconsin, Minnesota, California, and Europe. Since “retiring,” he has done consulting, speaking, and writing (4 books & several peer-reviewed papers). He has made presentations across the US and on most continents. His www.4iam.org Christian Website has links to several video presentations and printable flyers, as well as to his two secular science Websites (peer-reviewed papers).

See the following websites for more information:

  • Science Integrity (secular site describes books available)
  •  PoL  (secular site without pro-ID language, limited to informational aspects of life).

The Programming of Life (PoLbook highlights the proven fact that every cell has thousands of interacting computers reading billions of bits of digital information, including implementation of extremely complex digital computer programs.  Microsoft founder Bill Gates has written “Human DNA is like a computer program but far, far more advanced than any software we’ve ever created” [The Road Ahead]. Can you imagine how believable it would be if someone were to suggest that the Windows 7 operating system just arose by natural processes?

Awesome Eclipse & Other Astronomical Wonders @ Mens’ Breakfast – Dr. Don Johnson @ First Baptist Church Arlington
Aug 26 @ 7:00 am – 9:00 am
Men’s Breakfast at First Baptist Church Arlington
  • Breakfast at 7:00 AM (Optional)
  • Talk at 8:00 AM on Awesome Eclipse (All welcome, men and women)
  • Please invite your friends!

Description: Dr. Johnson observed the total solar eclipse that passed over the US on Monday, August 21. He took many pictures of this unique eclipse. Don will show these pictures, as well as some pictures of this eclipse taken by others. Other pictures of eclipses and awesome star formations as captured by others will be shared. A total solar eclipse requires the sun, moon and the earth all to be in 3-body alignment. Scientific discoveries have been made during solar eclipses, especially total eclipses. They allow scientists to see the chromosphere (Sun’s atmosphere), Bailey’s Beads (caused by Moon’s irregularities), the “Diamond ring” effect (caused by light through a deep Moon valley), as well as other effects. Past discoveries and projected studies made possible by eclipses are highlighted. For example, measurements taken during a total eclipse were used to verify Einstein’s Theory of Relativity, proposed in 1905, by verifying Solar gravity bending of light from distant stars. We’ll look at the probabilities of being able to observe total eclipses. The requirements for lunar and solar eclipses will be examined, along with the likelihood of 3-body alignments. Some important design principles have been established by the study of total eclipses. There will be Biblical references, as well as discussion of constellations, Zodiac, astrology, and astronomy. God’s use of heavenly signs will be discussed, especially those recorded in the Bible and the 7-year separation between the very rare total solar eclipses.

Transitional Forms – What Does Evidence Say? @ Luncheon – Dr. Don Johnson @ Olive Garden Restaurant

Luncheon at Olive Garden Restaurant in Kirkland, WA
  • Lunch at 11:30 AM
  • Talk at 12:30 PM on Transitional Forms – What Does Evidence Say?
  • Please invite your friends!

Description: Charles Darwin wrote “If it could be demonstrated that any complex organ existed which could not possibly have been formed by numerous, successive, slight modifications, my theory would absolutely break down” [Origin of Species]. He said that the transitional forms would be found in the fossil record, even though none had been found. Have 158 years of science discoveries shown the “missing links”? We’ll look at archaeopteryx, Tiktaalik, hominids (Nebraska man, Laetoli footprints, Hobbits, etc.), trilobites, dinosaurs, as well as ancient species (bacteria with new diets, coelacanths, etc.) still existing. Since all life processes have been shown to be controlled by biological computers, what would be required to form a major change?

Standing With The Reformation – Eric Barger @ Atonement Free Lutheran Church
Sep 22 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

 


Description: As the 500 year anniversary of the Reformation approaches we must be reminded that the fight is the same as it was centuries ago. It’s a battle for the Bible!

We present and address:

  • Why we must stand with the Reformation and NOT unite with Rome
  • Nine reasons why the Catholic system opposes the Bible on such issues as Idolatry, Faith & Works, Papal Authority,etc.
  • Current Ecumenical movements that ignore Scriptural commands
  • The deception of “Unity” and its promotion by Protestant and Evangelical leaders
  • Many concerns facing Bible-believers about Catholicism today
  • Solid facts – direct from Roman teachings in the Catholic Catechism – to answer the drumbeat of “unity” being heard throughout the Evangelical world
  • A review of the Reformation and the “Reformers Hall of Fame”

We’ll revisit the men who risked life and freedom to stand with the Bible against a corrupt system five centuries ago. The question is: will we stand with Luther, Tyndale, Wycliffe and others? Or will we ignore their sacrifice – and the Scriptures – all for “unity?”

 Unity at the cost of truth isn’t really unity. How can unity be our path if it is actually based in error?” – Eric Barger


Speaker: 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.

Eric has written for USA Today and has been interviewed by numerous print and electronic media outlets, including Time Magazine and Fox News. His articles are now syndicated on many biblically-based prophetic and apologetics websites and blogs.

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, such as Southwest Radio Ministries, Christ in Prophecy with Dr. David Reagan, Point of View with the late Marlin Maddoux, and many more.

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!

A more detailed bio can be found on Eric’s website at  www.ericbarger.com/1.1.barger.bio.pdf.

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

Description: In this Mini-Conference at Atonement Free Lutheran Church 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.


The first seminar at 9:00 AM is on Is Your Church New Age, Emergent, or Christian? What an astounding question! Just a few short years ago, few would have dreamed that by 2013 Evangelicals would be asking this of themselves. These are truly the “perilous times” the Apostle Paul spoke of when men would have “a form of godliness” but would be void of the power of God (II Timothy 3:1-5).
This comparison of New Age and Emergent beliefs against the backdrop of biblical Christianity will not only expose the many likenesses shared by New Age and Emergent philosophies but it will also help equip Christians with discernment in understanding and recognizing real, authentic Christianity.


The second seminar at 10:30 AM is on The End-Time Occult Invasion – 2017 Update. Adapted from Eric’s book Entertaining Spirits Unaware: The End-Time Occult Invasion this material is vital for church leadership, parents and grandparents. There will be a time for questions and answers after the second seminar.


Speaker: 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.

Eric has written for USA Today and has been interviewed by numerous print and electronic media outlets, including Time Magazine and Fox News. His articles are now syndicated on many biblically-based prophetic and apologetics websites and blogs.

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, such as Southwest Radio Ministries, Christ in Prophecy with Dr. David Reagan, Point of View with the late Marlin Maddoux, and many more.

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!

The Death of Discernment, Hath God Said? – Eric Barger @ First Baptist Church Arlington
Sep 24 @ 9:00 am – 12:00 pm

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


During the Sunday School hour at 9:00 AM, Eric delivers a message on The Death of Discernment – How The Shack Became the #1 Bestseller in Christianity. This powerful message illustrates the desperate need for clear and decisive biblical apologetics in the Church today. Find out why author and Christian apologist, Eric Barger, believes that the popularity of William Paul Young’s emotionally charged story, The Shack, signals an unprecedented lack of discernment from within Christianity. In 2008 Barger challenged Young face to face about the form of universalism promoted throughout his book. Years later, Young has finally admitted that he believes in the aberrant idea of Universal Reconciliation. But this runaway bestseller and motion picture contains other unbiblical, unorthodox theologies that continue to threaten and deceive untold numbers of both Christians and unbelieving seekers in our midst.


During the Worship Service at 10:30 AM, Eric delivers a message on Hath God Said? – Holding Onto The Bible in Troubled Times. How We Got the Bible, Why it’s True, and How We Know! Eric Barger states: “If Jesus Christ is who He said He was, If He did what history says He did, If He died and rose from the tomb, AND IF HE PROCLAIMED SOMETHING TO BE “THE WORD OF GOD,” then those who claim to follow Him should understand, proclaim, and defend it as such. Since we’ve accepted the promise of eternal life based on the teachings of its pages, we’d best know with resounding certainty why the Bible is reliable, inspired and infallible!”
