Summary: Part 2 of this three-part series speaks of the 'Great Flood.' Introducing younger people to the reality of the 'Great Flood' and answering broad questions like 'Where did all of the water come from?' and 'Where did the water go?'
Well… we are picking up right where we left off which is Part 2 of our ‘Back-to-School’ series.
Our message is titled ‘History 102.’
If you recall… We began our series… discussing briefly the creation and then went into Dinosaurs.
How many of you enjoyed the information we covered as it related to dinosaurs?
As we said then, dinosaurs play an important role in the debate between Christian and Non-Christian. Dinosaurs are a window into a Christian’s soul because they are just waiting for us to deny that they ever existed.
Should we go there… they have us right where they want us. To them, they have shot down the accuracy of our Bible and uncovered in their minds a 6000-year-old hoax.
That is why this topic and this series is so important. If we want to win young people to the Lord, we cannot insist that dinosaurs never existed… because they did. God has left us with definitive proof that they did.
Our children are bombarded by false information daily, including the magazines that don our check-out counters in the grocery store or Walmart, etc.
Here are just a few:
• Dinosaurs Honked Like Buicks
• Cow Mattresses Help Cows Produce More Milk
• Mother to Be on Diet Of Only Chicken, Lays Huge Egg
• WWII Bomber Found on The Moon
• Woman Gives Birth To 2-Year-Old Baby: Child Walks & Talks In 3 Days
• Adam & Eve’s Bones Found In Asia: Eve Was A Space Alien.
Many young people and even some older folks find it much easier to believe that kind of nonsense vs. what is written in the Bible. Like the ‘Great Flood’… which is next.
III. THE GREAT FLOOD
VI. JESUS CHRIST
We will now look at our third of six points and it is titled:
** POINT THREE: THE GREAT FLOOD
Let us open our Bibles…
Atheists, or non-believers, would like our young people to disbelieve the ‘Great Flood’ ever happened. Why?
Because it does not fit in with their narrative. They want us all to believe that everything we see or hear concerning the mass-destruction of animals on earth was due to a rather large meteor striking the earth.
They will go on to tell our young people that this happened some 600,000+ years ago and it will happen again… most likely in another 600,000+ years. I know… for I have read it myself.
This supports their belief in an old earth. You do remember me starting the series talking about their theory called ‘The Old Earthy Theory’? Right?
If it happened some 600,000+ years ago, the earth would have to be at least that old. And if it is that old… well then, the Bible is just a book of lies.
See how they connive? They sit around… it almost puts you in mind of the Pharisees… where they sit around and plot in the secrecy and darkness of the night.
They have it all figured out and they have convinced the school-book publishers as well as many of our congressmen… that they have it all figured out.
That is precisely why this nonsensical garbage is in our history books and being forced down the proverbial throats of our impressionable young people.
Can you tell that I hate what they are doing to our children?
Here is some news we can believe:
“One can argue, and some have, that the decision by the Supreme Court – in a series of three decisions back in 1962 and 1963 – to remove Bible and prayer from our public schools, may be the most spiritually significant event in our nation’s history over the course of the last 55 years.”
On June 25, 1962, the United States Supreme Court decided in Engel v. Vitale that a prayer approved by the New York Board of Regents for use in schools violated the First Amendment because it represented establishment of religion.
In 1963, in Abington School District v. Schempp, the court decided against Bible readings in public schools along the same lines.
Since 1963, there have been at least five negative developments in the nation’s public schools:
• Academic achievement has plummeted, including SAT scores.
• Increased rate of out-of-wedlock births
• Increase in illegal drug use
• Increase in juvenile crime including numerous shootings in our schools
• Deterioration of our youths’ behavior at home and at school
“So, we need to realize that these actions do have consequences,” said the professor at California State College in Long Beach and senior fellow at the Witherspoon Institute in Princeton, N.J., “When we remove that moral fiber -- that moral emphasis – this is what can result.”
