Evolution Taught To Kids As Truth | I've heard it all! Evolution has nothing to do with a kid's faith. But when evolution is taught to kids as truth the problems begin. It is one of the reasons that kids leave their faith as they get older. | #podcast #creationscienceEvolution Taught To Kids As Truth ~ Episode

I’ve heard it all! Evolution has nothing to do with a kid’s faith. But when evolution is taught to kids as truth the problems begin. It is one of the reasons that kids leave their faith as they get older. There are many excuses given for how a kid raised in a Christian, God-loving home can leave their faith behind. Maybe the kids never believed. Maybe they didn’t really mean it when they accepted the Lord as their personal Savior. Maybe they didn’t make their faith their own, or they weren’t really “saved.” No one can answer this question other than the person who once believed and now doesn’t.

In my experience talking to hundreds of parents in the years since I co-authored my first book on the topic of Creation, in 1994 the common theme was, evolution. The child bought into the lie taught as fact in the schools they attended. The biggest question I’ve asked is why is a theory taught as a fact? I think the answer is as varied as the person asking the question. Again, the common theme is because the “other” (Creationism) is faith and evolution is science. Evolution is a theory. It is not a scientific law.

Science, Faith, and Truth

In fact on further examination evolution contradicts scientific laws like Thermodynamics. But of course, we sweep this under the rug. Upon digging deeper we also learn that Darwinian evolution is discounted (because the fossil record never substantiated Darwin’s theory) and neo-Darwinism is in. Or is it? Now scientists think neo-Darwinism is in need of a replacement.

Many Christian households teach a Biblical Creation as stated in Genesis 1: God created… and many also are at a loss on how to fit their faith into evolution. News Flash! You don’t have to “fit” faith into evolution because evolution is a lie. Is there microevolution, changes within a kind. Absolutely. But macroevolution – goo to you by way of the zoo is a myth. Now scientists realize that what they thought was DNA “junk” randomly evolving human genome can’t happen. In fact, 95% of human genomes can not evolve. Really? We knew this. So, why do evolutionists keep insisting that Genesis is a myth?

Evolution Taught To Kids as Truth – The Problem

Once kids are taught that evolution is a “valid” theory (aka educated guess) kids think their parents lied, or worse. They park their faith at the door and feel that maybe Genesis is the fairy tale. In my many years of study into creationism and evolution, I learned that kids need to be taught both of the faith systems because truthfully both are based upon faith. We have faith in the unseen, we were not present when God created the world and we were not present when the big-bang or whatever other theory started the world, and from this disorder came order – and everything in between. There are many theories of origins and as demonstrated earlier, they keep changing. Some Christian believe that Almighty God chose to begin the world by evolution (Theistic Evolutionists).

Debating Evolution Taught to Kids as Truth

So much of this has been debated and truthfully, it is up to each one of you to make this determination on your own. But, I’m warning you, if your kids are brought up with a strong faith and yet believe in evolution as a theory of molecules-to-man, they will be hard-pressed to defend their faith when they are in higher education. My co-author on the Creation Science Series, Jill Whitlock use to lament that those who believed in Theistic Evolution were lost, souls. I don’t go that far. Sure, you can believe in God, have a relationship with the Almighty and still believe in evolution. But what a loss.

Explaining to children that the Bible (especially Genesis) is an allegory or fairy tale, and then jumping to Genesis 1:27 – “Oh, but we believe that God created Adam and Eve, just not as He said in Genesis. You see, these organisms evolved and then at some point when a human was formed, God infused a soul into the first man and then the first woman, and called them Adam and Eve.” That is confusing to say the least. We must believe that Almighty God used death and destruction and “chance” as the molecules formed themselves eventually into a human, to then infuse a soul? Wow.

Never mind that there is no evidence that evolution happened. No fossil record. No verifiable scientific data. Only a theory.

Why are people so adamant that Creationism is false? That Genesis is not to be read literally? Because then a person must change and follow God and the “rules” which they believe are limiting.

Recently some big names in the Christian world have abdicated their faith. They’ve decided they are no longer Christians because of the “definition” of what it means to be a Christian. In the same sentence they added – oh, by the way, I am also getting divorced. We see the tragedy of sin in the priest scandal. We see pastors of various denominations falling prey to sin. How does this happen? It begins by turning away from the truth and coming up with the slang of the day “speaking your own truth.”

And when evolution is taught to kids as truth then nothing is sacred.

Kids begin to question:

  • We don’t have to believe the Bible as written?
  • Do we have to believe in Noah’s ark? That was pretty far fetched, anyway.
  • Jonah and the whale – yeah, that was hard to believe, too.
  • Moses parting the Red Sea – yeah, totally weird.
  • Jesus born of a Virgin? How can that be?
  • Jesus the Son of God? Wow. I don’t know.
  • Jesus and the miracles of the loaves and fishes. How can that happen?
  • Jesus dying for our sins? If Adam and Eve didn’t exist then why did he have to die?
  • Jesus rising from the dead? Not sure about that one either.

Never mind that the disciples that walked with Jesus (except for John) were all martyred for their faith as well as thousands upon thousands of Christians. You don’t give your life for a myth or allegory.

Kids think in ways that many adults tend to think and if we begin questioning the truth of the Bible or a loose interpretation of it, then nothing is sacred. Friends, don’t believe me. Research creationism side-by-side with evolution. No one has all the answers but evolution is sure based on a bunch of theory by scientists who have very little if any evidence that points to a conclusion that is substantiated.

Hug your kids. Teach them the truth. You will be happy you did.

Truth Goodness & Beauty | Unveiling Their Significance in Homeschooling, LifeSkills 101 Podcast on the Ultimate Homeschool Podcast NetworkTruth, Beauty, and Goodness

Today on the podcast, True North Homeschool Academy Director, Lisa Nehring is talking with True North teacher, Angie Ferrell about Truth, Beauty, and Goodness.

Show Notes: Exploring Truth, Beauty, and Goodness: Unveiling Their Significance in Homeschooling

In this episode of the podcast, join Lisa Nehring, Director of True North Homeschool Academy, as she engages in a thought-provoking conversation with Angie Ferrell, an esteemed educator at True North. Together, they delve into the captivating realms of Truth, Beauty, and Goodness, concepts that frequently resonate within the homeschooling community. But what lies beneath these terms? And why should they hold a place of importance in our lives?

Unveiling the Core of Education

History of Education

  • The foundation of education stands resolute when rooted in Truth, serving as the wellspring from which the rivers of goodness and beauty flow. For individuals of faith, Truth finds its bedrock in the person of Jesus Christ, entwined with the transformative redemption offered through acceptance of Him as Lord and Savior. Additionally, the Bible emerges as a profound testament of His love and wisdom bestowed upon humanity.

    Manifestation of Virtue

    Goodness, the tangible manifestation of Truth, urges believers to align with God’s perspective and understanding. This moral obligation beckons us to navigate life through the lens of divine definition. By embracing goodness, we embrace the inherent purpose woven into all things, employing them in ways that honor their intended design.

    Nurturing Moral Imagination

    The gateway to comprehending goodness lies in cultivating a moral imagination. This lens allows us to peer beyond the surface, capturing the essence of purpose intricately interwoven within. Recognizing that purpose may shift across seasons, we find solace in the significance of even seemingly minor roles we undertake – for within them resides immeasurable value.

    Reflecting on ‘Honor Patronage, Kinship, and Purity’ by David DeSilva

    Honor Patronage, Kinship and Purity by David DeSilva

  • Venturing into the realm of beauty, we encounter a connection to the laws of physics and the potent Law of Attraction. Truth stands as a beacon, drawing us closer, while lies weave a seductive web. Beauty, an offspring of goodness, in turn, invites us to a life infused with purpose. Through its allure, we discover a renewed devotion to serving others, an organic outgrowth of the harmonious relationship between beauty, goodness, and Truth.

    Resonating with ‘Coat of Many Colors by Dolly Parton

Show Notes

Have you heard what is being said on social media, in movies, on TV, by politicians, by influencers, and in some churches?

Is Hard Work Dangerous?

“We weren’t made to work hard” story

“All hard work brings a profit, but mere talk leads only to poverty” (Proverbs 14:23 NIV)

“Whatever you do, do your work heartily, as for the Lord [x]rather than for men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the reward of the inheritance. It is the Lord Christ whom you serve. For he who does wrong will receive the consequences of the wrong which he has done, and that without partiality” (Colossians 3:23-25)

Biblical work week

Follow Your Heart?

Every secular movie and some Christian ones

The heart is more deceitful than all else And is desperately sick; Who can understand it?” (Jeremiah 17:9 NASB1995)

How Many Sexes?

Man or woman or something else? Can you define a man or a woman?

Then God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.” So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them. God blessed them and said to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground” (Genesis 1: 26-28 NIV)

What is God’s View of Sex?

“Marriage should be honored by all, and the marriage bed kept pure, for God will judge the adulterer and all the sexually immoral” (Hebrews 13:4 NIV)

Is there a Right & Wrong?

Is something right for you but not for me?

“Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!” (Isaiah 5:20)

“There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way to death” (Proverbs 14:12)

“All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness” (II Timothy 3:16)

Is the Battle Between Brown & White?

We talk so much about race in a way that divides. Is that what the Bible teaches?

We are all descendants of Adam and Noah. One race the human race; yet many nations.

Is Western Culture Worth Saving?

Western culture is a combination of Jewish, Christian & Pagan.

Every tribe and tongue around the throne. (Revelation 7:9)

Does God Even Care about Sin?

The sin of every man, woman, and child will be punished.

“The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people, who suppress the truth by their wickedness, since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse. For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like a mortal human being and birds and animals and reptiles“ (Romans 1:18-23)

Our sin will be punished in hell or on the cross where Jesus died.

Gospel:

If we are truly born again – we will live a holy life tho we will sometimes sin (see I John 1)

How Can I Swim Against the Evil Tide of Our Culture?

Abide / Surrender (John 15)

Hide the Word (Psalm 119:8-11)

Worship & Prayer (adoration, confession, thanksgiving, supplication-ACTS)

Live a holy life (I Thessalonians 4)

Share the Gospel!!!!!!!!!

Speak Out!

Rescue those being led away to death; hold back those staggering toward slaughter. If you say, ‘But we knew nothing about this,’ does not He who weighs the heart perceive it? Does not he who guards your life know it? Will He not repay each person according to what He has done? (Proverbs 24:11-12)

Truth, Goodness and Beauty with Annie Ferrell

A Production of the Ultimate Homeschool Podcast Network.

LS101 Truth, Goodness and Beauty with Annie FerrellTruth, Beauty and Goodness

Today on the podcast, True North Homeschool Academy Director, Lisa Nehring is talking with True North teacher, Angie Ferrell about Truth, Beauty and Goodness.

These are terms you hear in the homeschooling world a LOT, but what exactly do they mean, and why should we even care about these concepts?

History of Education

Standing on Truth allows us to build a firm foundation and is that from which goodness and beauty flow.

As believers Truth is based on the person of Jesus Christ and the redemptive salvation he offers through acknowledging him as Lord and Savior, as well as the Bible, which is his love letter to humanity.

Goodness is that expression of truth. As believers, we avhe an obligation to fulfill truth and think about God’s definition of things. Goodness is the essential nature of things and utilizing them for the purpose for which they have been created.

Moral imagination allows us to fully understand goodness. Goodness is tied to purpose and our purpose can change through the seasons. Our job might seem small but it is so valuable.

Honor Patronage, Kinship and Purity by David DeSilva

Beauty has to do with physics and the Law of Attraction. Truth attracts, lies seduce.

Beauty gives us a life of purpose and encourages us to serve others, it flows from goodness, which flows from Truth.

Homeschooling When History Gets Messy

Homeschooling When History Gets Messy

Homeschooling when history gets messy.

Show notes:

  1. When teaching history it’s important that we focus on truth.
  2. Truth is broader than mere facts.
  3. The Bible is full of conflicted people. We can’t avoid teaching them.
  4. True history tells the story.
  5. There are 2 types of Revisionism (Liberal & Christian).
  6. What is the agenda in the public schools teaching of history?
  7. What is the agenda of Christian revisionism?
  8. We should teach the entire truth.
  9.  Can we resolve the dichotomies truthfully? The way the Bible does?

Join Israel Wayne and his wife Brook, every month as they discusses life, theology, Christian Apologetics, education, family and cultural issues from a Biblical worldview. Israel is an author and conference speaker who often speaks at homeschooling conferences, and churches, as well as marriage and parenting seminars.

Finally, the information he teaches around the nation will be available to listeners like you. Each broadcast will be about a half hour and will feature interviews and thoughtful commentary from Israel and his guests.

_____________________________________

The decision to homeschool is difficult. There is so much to learn, and there are often radical changes that take place in your family. Unfortunately, not everyone will be supportive.

Well-meaning friends and relatives may believe you are going to “ruin your child.” How can you make sure that you have laid a good foundation for your child’s future? How can you respectfully defend your choice to those who disagree with you?

Many studies indicate that Christian youth are leaving the Church, and anti-Christian education has been linked as a major factor in this equation. The Bible is full of instructions on how God desires His children to be educated. IF GOD has a definite opinion about the issue of education, wouldn’t you desire to find out what it is and how best to implement HIS WISDOM? Order your copy here.
