We are impacting eternity! How about you? Dear Friends and Partners of CSE,

(as well as a few atheists, scoffers and skeptics who would love for us to stop reminding them that they do believe in God!)

I have to say that the challenges this ministry has faced pale in comparison to the victories that we have won in bringing people to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ, using creation science as a means of evangelism. Nothing thrills my heart more than reading the testimonies from people that were entangled in the snare of their education (or should I say “indoctrination”), but have been set free by the power of the Holy Spirit through the information that we present on creation versus evolution. This is no new formula—it is simply the teaching of God’s Word in a relevant way that opens the eyes of the blind and heals the ears of the deaf. Now, if you want to know what really frustrates me as a leader, it’s the people that do not want to get on board the train of truth with us. My heart goes out to the people that remain, as the Bible declares, “willingly ignorant” of the truth of creation. In 1 Corinthians, the Bible declares that the natural man is blind to spiritual things, but through the power of the Holy Spirit, those blind eyes can be opened. We are thrilled that God continues to use Creation Science Evangelism as a means to that end! Here is an example from Jeremy:

Jeremy from Connecticut “I have been out preaching on the college campuses of Yale and University of Connecticut. Neither school had any students who could articulate why they believed anything they believed. I used a lot of your material to confound the atheists and skeptics on campus. Who would have thought seven years ago when I was given a copy of your then-VHS tapes, that I would get right with God after watching them, and some day be using the material to reach others on college campuses! We set up and preach in the open air on public sidewalks or campus free speech zones, and the students come out to engage us in large numbers.”

I hope you enjoy reading about the exciting opportunities that God has presented to us. These projects and divine appointments are better enabling us to do our part in getting it done—preaching the Gospel to every creature.”

F

ounded in 1989 by Dr. Kent Hovind, Creation Science Evangelism (CSE) quickly gained worldwide notoriety as a foremost authority on science and the Bible. In those twenty years, through mountains and valleys, our position has never wavered: The Bible is literally true and scientifically accurate. God created everything in six, literal, 24hour periods, about 6,000 years ago, just as the Bible clearly declares. Many notice that the “We’ve got creation vs. evolution battle exciting projects rages on in the fields of public to announce, that school classrooms, national will change the television and science journals. landscape of the Unfortunately, the casualties of war are often our children. entire battle.” Recent surveys suggest this indoctrination of evolutionary thinking in society is one of the leading reasons why youth and young adults reject Christianity. Churches and denominations are deserting the clear teaching of Scripture by the droves, drastically impacting our world. CSE fights on the front lines of this battle, and we have our share of scars. For the last few years, we considered our testimony to be “we’re still here!” Yet, merely still being here is unsatisfactory. In 2011, we determined to invest in ministry more than ever before. God is enlarging our vision and we’re

moving forward! We believe we’ve laid a solid foundation upon which we can grow. We’ve hired strategic staff and made tremendous investments into technology and media. We’ve got some exciting projects to announce, which we believe will change the landscape of the entire battle. We hope you’ll stand in amazement with us and see the “God is enlarging faithfulness of God. Look—and our vision and SEE—what the Lord has done! we’re moving

forward!”

The Gospel According to Theistic Evolution

I

n this bicentennial year for Charles Darwin, a number of articles and books have been published, arguing that it is OK to believe in the theory of evolution, while simultaneously believing in the Bible. It is noteworthy that several atheist evolutionists can see the problem. In a recent TV discussion, in which I appeared, Professor Peter Atkins said that he supposed it was all right to believe that a god had created the universe through evolution, but that it would have to be a particularly malignant and cruel kind of god. This illustrates the source of the problem for theistic evolutionists. Rather than concentrate on the many scientific problems with theistic evolution, I “Death came into want to use this article to address the world because some of the theological issues— particularly what we understand of Adam’s sin.” about the nature of God. According to the Bible, death came into the world because of Adam’s sin. In Genesis 3, God tells Adam that the ground is cursed because of him. So the whole of creation is cursed because of Adam, and this point is reiterated in Romans 8:20–21. Originally, in Genesis 1, we see that there was no death—even the animals were intended to eat plants in God’s perfect creation. Therefore, the concept of a new world, where lions eat straw like oxen (see Isaiah 11 and Isaiah 65) is not just poetic. It marks a return to vegetarianism for carnivorous animals. The new heavens and new Earth prophecies make little sense if they are merely symbolic rather than marking a return to original perfection. Indeed,

I have met Christians who believe in a literal end to death and killing in the world to come, but still believe that the past featured an evolution of death, disease and suffering. This is inconsistent. Again, atheist evolutionists immediately see the issue. In a recent documentary, Richard Dawkins said that Christians believe that “Jesus had himself tortured and killed for a symbolic sin by a nonexistent individual.” This is indeed what theistic evolutionists believe. Some confuse matters still further by accepting the existence of a real Adam, but make him merely the first evolved ape-man. In view of this mythological or symbolic nature of Adam, his death is seen as simply a symbolic death. This raises the question of why Jesus couldn’t have simply died a symbolic death for our sins. The New Testament clearly links the representative nature “Jesus died a real of Adam and the representative death on a real nature of Jesus. These parallels are cross, because seen most clearly in Romans 5 and there was real sin 1 Corinthians 15. Jesus died a real brought into the death on a real cross, because there was real sin brought into the world world by a real by a real Adam. Theistic evolution Adam. “ presents overwhelming problems. This is not a minor disagreement on interpretation. It is a straightforward question of whether the Christian is actually going to believe what God has said about Himself and how He created the world. Although proponents and audiences often do not realize it, theistic evolution stands in direct opposition to the truth of the Gospel.

The most ambitious project ever undertaken by Creation Science Evangelism is underway! We are still in the beginning stages of creating and producing the Genesis Series. This full-length feature film incorporates the most advanced animation and special effects in the industry. Genesis: The Creation to the Fall is based on chapters one through three of the first book of the Bible and will be a faithful retelling of this true story. No longer will the story of creation be a tale limited to text on paper. The Genesis movie will be produced in stereoscopic 3-D, and available in Blu-Ray and Anaglyph 3-D integrating the latest scientific research and stunning visual effects. We have already logged two years of development, research and pre-production needed for the project. Our goal is to raise $250,000 before animation can begin. We are currently securing screenwriters for the next stage of development, which will take approximately 12 to 14 months. The total fund-raising goal needed is $1.5 million; $700,000 for production and $800,000 for marketing and distribution. An anticipated release date of 2013 is planned. Donors to the movie will receive regular updates and behind-the-scenes scoops. For a sneak peek at this glorious undertaking, we introduce you to the principals of the Genesis Series: Project visionary and lead animator Ralph Strean is founder of Sevenfold Films, an animation/film company which originally produced secular films, that is now transitioning to full-time ministry work in films. Mr. Strean currently produces CSE’s popular Creation Minute series.

Producer Dr. William Harrity is a practicing anesthesiologist, and founder and president of Resurrection Pictures, a film ministry producing and distributing movies for theatrical release with the objective of bringing people to faith in Jesus Christ. He launched his film ministry out of frustration that there was a lack of wholesome content and an abundance of offensive material in films. Resurrection Pictures is the world’s first 501(c)(3) non-profit, tax-exempt Christian movie ministry of its kind.

Producer Rick Eldridge established Reel Works Studios as president and CEO with Chris Cates in August 2009. He has been involved in the entertainment industry for more than thirty years as producer, director, musician and creative visionary for Universal Studios, Disney, Fox Sports, MGM, Discovery, BET, PBS, ABC, NBC and ESPN. The mission of Reel Works Studios is to produce media that entertains, educates and edifies. All of their movies have messages that are uplifting and redemptive, and raise values worthy of teaching. His feature films include “Bobby Jones–Stroke of Genius” (Sony Pictures) and “The Ultimate Gift” (20th Century Fox).

Q: What is your vision for the Genesis Series? Mr. Strean: The Series’s main purpose is to bring to life the Genesis account as it has never been done before! From God’s creation of the heavens and the Earth to the love story between Himself and man, His ultimate plan of redemption through Jesus Christ all begins in the first three chapters. It is also intended to set the record straight on ridiculous theories like evolution, and to help the audience understand what man and woman relationships are supposed to be. These are just a few of the fascinating truths from the first history book ever recorded. Dr. Harrity: Our mission and vision for this film is to have millions view the movie in theaters around the world and come to faith in Jesus Christ. Q: What effect would you like for this film to have on its viewers? Mr. Strean: We hope that viewers will realize that the Word of God is true; that as sinful men, they need a savior— Jesus Christ; and that every beginning has an end and they had better prepare before their end or The End comes!

Darwin and Darwinism “This excellent book explains how theistic evolution is not a reconciliation of science with the Bible but a damaging union of humanism and the Bible.” — Stuart Burgess, Professor of Design and Nature, UK, and author of Hallmarks of Design. In 1859 Charles Robert Darwin published On the Origin of Species, a book that has had a profound impact on the Western world ever since. Here Ian McNaughton and Paul Taylor review Charles Darwin’s religious ideas, setting them in the context of his background and family, and examine his evolutionary claims in light of the Bible for a worldview consistent with faith in God. 103 pages.

“O Lord, how manifold are thy works! In wisdom hast thou made them all: the earth is full of thy riches.” —Psalm 104:24

I

sn’t it ironic that man only got around to valuing and protecting the earth as lately as 1970? That is the year that Earth Day, based on the assertion that all people have a moral right to a healthy sustainable environment, was inaugurated on April 22. It is also considered to be the beginning of the modernday environmental movement. The Industrial Revolution had raged on since 1733 with no environmental controls until the 1970s. With the advent of Earth Day, beneficial legislation was finally enacted, including the Clean Air, Clean Water and Endangered Species Acts. The earth is not merely an “incubator” for evolution; rather, it’s a complex and intelligently designed home that God has given for mankind to care for and keep. It may be

flawed due to man’s abuse, but the earth is still a magnificent creation, and every creation has to have a creator. We credit God! Here at Creation Science Evangelism, our mission was to take the day of heightened awareness of creation and turn the focus to God Himself. We started a God Created Earth Day campaign with a contest to design t-shirts broadcasting this message. The winning t-shirt design was submitted by Mark Danker via our Facebook Fan Page. On April 22, hundreds of people across the world—from Singapore to South Africa— Canada to the Wal-Mart Headquarters—were wearing our shirt as an evangelistic tool and reminder that God created the earth!

“The earth is not merely an ‘incubator’for evolution.”

mpacting our world with the creation message is a bold mission, one we cannot accomplish alone. At Creation Science Evangelism, we depend upon the faithful monthly partnership of ministry supporters who pledge time, prayers and financial gifts. When you partner with us, where we go, you go—what we accomplish, you accomplish. We’re better together. Our partners impact the world through four significant ways: Media, evangelism, resources, and changed lives. “For we are labourers together with God:” —1 Corinthians 3:9a.

Every day we receive the most precious of any of our mail: testimony letters. These are letters from real people pouring out their hearts about what God has done in their lives. Our partners share in the joy and celebration of the people God touches through our ministry. Look what the Lord has done!

I don’t know what you said to him, but his dying request was that I make sure all our unsaved siblings and family saw your creation DVDs, and that they be available at his funeral. We honored that request, and as a result of those DVDs, Mike’s son, who we all had given up on twenty-five years ago, was able to make amends with his mom. The drug addict sister is no longer addicted to drugs but to Jesus. Three siblings have come to Christ. Many other family members have come to know God.

The person responsible for my accident, my close friend, stole all of my tree climber business equipment and sold it to a pawnshop while I was in ICU. I became bitter. I could not understand how a “Christian brother” could do this to me, when all I had ever done was try to help him. For four years, I kept away from church and from seeking God. Then, I started watching your movies that a Christian brother had given me shortly after my accident in 2006.

n another milestone for our ministry, we are excited to unveil our brand-new film and television studio set. In our twenty-year history, we’ve recorded well over one hundred DVDs and other visual media. God has used these efforts to spread the creationgospel message around the world. It’s no small thing to produce and distribute such a volume of technologically current media. Still, every time we prepared to record something new, we always found ourselves scrambling to find the equipment and resources necessary to make a successful video. We were often left with a hodgepodge of lights, cameras and backgrounds, which to the casual bystander looked fine, but were incredibly inefficient when filming. We have a vision to greatly expand our media outreach and take our message in cutting-edge ways to new audiences around the world. With a generation accustomed to the high-tech animation of “Avatar” and the polished studios of ESPN, we knew our homemade efforts were lacking the creativity and professionalism needed to capture

the attention of today’s world. It was time for a change. We are thrilled to announce a partnership with the Christian Television Network (CTN) affiliate in Pensacola, Florida. In 2010, CTN approached us about using their professional studio for our future projects. The studio is just a few blocks down the road from our ministry headquarters—a perfect fit! We enthusiastically accepted their offer. Next, we needed an attractive set to call our own. Early this year, we worked with a popular set design company from Charlotte, North Carolina to build us a mobile environment, flexible enough for a variety of broadcasts. They delivered a contemporary, beautiful design! Today our new film and television studio is ready for action! Soon, you’ll be hearing about new television broadcasts, DVD series, and online webcasts that will help us engage the attention of countless new people in captivating ways. THANK YOU to CTN Pensacola and all of our generous partners for making this giant step possible!

Eric’s Excursion Ica Stones

In Ica, Peru, there is a private collection of artifacts known as the Ica burial stones. During a private tour of the collection, we learned that these stones are pre-Incan artifacts made by the Ica people who lived in the area from around 300 BC to 800 AD. The significance of these stones is found in the etchings depicting brain surgery, C-sections, maps of coastal seas, and animals that are both alive today and some that seem to be extinct. Yes, these stones even show dinosaurs and man together.

On April 4, I found myself and my bother-in-law Paul Dublin, jettisoned into a lost world—a world of startling evidence of dinosaurs living with man, of advanced science used by the pre-Columbian people, and age-old secrets in the Inca’s land. We were on a ten-day excursion to Peru with leading Peruvian artifact researcher, Denis Swift, to explore evidence of man and dinosaurs living together. We even caught glimpses of an earlier scientifically sophisticated civilization, and in dusty archives of museum backrooms were artifacts depicting people with dinosaurs. In Nazca, we flew over carved lines in the earth, which made me think, “This is possibly the world’s largest sketchpad.” Returning from this mission to discover truth, my mind was flooded with questions. How did an ancient civilization illustrate dinosaurs on stones thousands of years before the first dinosaur bones were discovered? What kind of technology did they have to carve mile-long lines in the earth with such precision? How did they depict the intricacies of a rare spider’s anatomy when today only a highpowered microscope can view it? Much mystery surrounds this place. Yet, the evidence all agrees with the biblical account of creation: Man and dinosaurs lived together and people were sophisticated, not primitive products of evolution.

Nazca Lines Nazca lines are one of archaeology’s most baffling enigmas. Carved in sand with laser-straight precision are giant geoglyphs of a variety of shapes—a spider, monkey, pelican, parrot, and dinosaur. Some of these stretch as long as 25 miles. Amazingly, when a line comes to a hill or a mountain, it stops, and then proceeds on the other side at precisely the same linear path. The precision is astounding. The scientific calculations necessary to accomplish this feat are mind-boggling.! www.drdino.com | 2011 SUMMER |
