Links: Learning Creation is Important for Kids

I’ve had my hands full recently and just can’t squeeze in a post needing a lot of research, but I have been keeping up with the creation materials flowing into my inbox and facebook newsfeed. It was exciting to see a couple of them focusing on the next generation; so exciting I decided to collect all the examples I could find into one place for all of us.

Enjoy!

Creation Moments has been producing radio segments for 50 years now. March 24, 2014, they shared a testimony of a young man who found great assurance in the Bible by learning creation science. Then they had this to say about too many Christian young people:

“They grew up learning about creation and Adam and Eve in Sunday school. As they were exposed to evolution, they desperately wanted the Bible to offer an intelligent alternative to evolution. But no one could ever offer it to them.”

Today, there’s no reason for such a tragedy to still happen!

The Creation Today Show with Eric Hovind has redesigned its format and is now including an experiment segment! It’s buried in the middle, but the rest is well worth watching. The first episode like this is up online and uses a thin garbage bag and hot air to show us something about air and… the Holy Spirit.

Keep it up, Eric! 😀

In case you hadn’t visited them in a while, Answers in Genesis has claimed this as their theme this year:

Standing our Ground, Rescuing our Kids

What’s more, they’re putting their money where their heart is by offering free admission for kids to the Creation Museum through the end of 2014!

Recently, I read the testimony of Dr. Rob Carter, who found Jesus as a child, but felt his faith slipping away until running into creation materials in college. 

I also heard what happened to Albert Einstein when he was left to read secular science books for himself:

“. . . I came—though the child of entirely irreligious (Jewish) parents—to a deep religiousness, which, however, reached an abrupt end at the age of twelve. Through the reading of popular scientific books I soon reached the conviction that much in the stories of the Bible could not be true.” Einstein, Albert (1979). Autobiographical Notes

It’s enough to break your heart knowing the difference it could have made if he’d heard the truth about science!

Checking around on Creation Ministries International’s website, I ran into an article written so long ago I wished my parents had happened to read it. Of course, being based in Biblical thinking it’s just as useful for us today:

Your children and evolution
Hints for Christian Parents

Most of us are well aware of the need to reach our young people before the world gets its hands on them. The difficult thing is presenting engaging materials worded for people who haven’t gotten to Collegate Dictionary level yet. Praise God, He’s called a number of us to provide these resources!

    I remember doing Apologetics in Bible school and it was amazing how so many Christian Apologists shut down the atheists they argued with! Brilliant resources you have here. Keep reaching the children and making difference in the world by making a difference in their world!

      Lord willing, I will. Of course, the best thing isn’t to “shut down” the skeptic, but to give the Holy Spirit something to work on their hearts with. Thanks for the encouragement!

        Oh yes, that’s true. I just saw some videos about it and read a bit on it too. I do believe that an element of the fruit of the Holy Spirit would be deposited in the skeptic, even amidst the “shut down.”

I'd love to hear your thoughts
