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?

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 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!
