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).

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 @ Ristorante Italianissimo
Sep 9 @ 12:00 pm – 2:00 pm
Luncheon at Restaurant Italianissmo in Woodinville
  • Lunch at 12:00 PM
  • Talk at 1:00 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!”

James Ussher and the History of Bible Chronology – Paul F. Taylor @ Atonement Free Lutheran Church
Oct 20 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

James Ussher and the History of Bible Chronology


Description: Paul Taylor, the Director of the Mount St. Helens Creation Center, speaks on Ussher and his legacy. Ussher‘s famous Annals of the World still has a major impact on creation studies today. However, it is fashionable for modern Christians – even some creationists – to join evolutionists in disparaging Ussher‘s legacy. This biographical talk explains Ussher’s intellectual and theological background, and shows the depth of his research and ideas – sufficient depth that we should still accept much of his findings today.


SpeakerPaul Taylor was born and grew up near Manchester in the North of England. He studied piano at Chetham’s School of Music, but read Chemistry at the University of Nottingham. Paul taught Chemistry, Physics and Science in government (“public”) schools in England and Wales for 18 years, eventually becoming a Head of Science, with a Masters in Science Education and Management from the University of Cardiff.

Paul was saved at the age of 15. He came across creationist literature in his late teens, and quickly became involved in speaking and writing on the subject of creation and evolution, Genesis and apologetics. Since 2005, he has been a full-time creation speaker, having worked for Answers in Genesis (UK/Europe) and Creation Today. He and his wife are the Directors of the Mount St Helens Creation Center. Paul is married to Geri, and they have five children between them.
