Why teaching creation matters at Living Waters Bible Camp
Viewing entries tagged
IS GENESIS HISTORY? is a fascinating two hour documentary film which looks at the biblical, historical, and scientific evidence for Creation and the Flood. The movie interviews more than a dozen scientists and scholars as they explore the world around us in light of Genesis.
Living Waters partnered with the "Is Genesis History?" project and reserved one hundred tickets at the LaCrosse Marcus theater for the February 23rd showing. We had high hopes of selling all the tickets. Just two days before the movie's showing we were delighted to discover that, not only did we sell all our tickets, but the entire theater sold out! The theater added another screen and we started selling tickets again.
Long story short, on Thursday night over 475 people showed up to see the "Is Genesis History?" movie on three different screens! It was an overwhelming success! Nationwide, 143,000 people viewed the movie making it the number one movie in America for one night.
Partnering with the movie provided an invaluable opportunity to tell more people about the ministry of Living Waters Bible Camp. We pray that those who share our deeply held convictions about the importance of Biblical creation will partner with us in ministry.
Is Genesis History? If you ask this question in our society today you will likely receive two very different answers but both of them will be "Yes." It's kind of a loaded question with a double meaning.
Ask an evolutionist "Is Genesis History?" and they will likely answer "Yes, because it is an outdated theory that has no relevance in science today."
Ask a creation scientist "Is Genesis History?" and they will likely answer "Yes, we can depend on the Genesis account as the literal history of creation."
From either worldview, the topic of creation is a hot topic in our world today. Our schools, media and courts assume creation is a myth that has been proven wrong by modern science. But is that the truth? Is Genesis History takes a close look at the scientific proof available to us about creation as described in the book of Genesis.
For one day only Is Genesis History will be available in a movie theater near you. I encourage you to visit the Is Genesis History website to find a location. If you are in the LaCrosse area, Living Waters will be hosting the movie at the Marcus Theater.
Join us on February 23rd for this premier creation training opportunity. Reserve your tickets today on the Living Waters website.
On April 29-30, Living Waters welcomed Tim Chaffey from Answers In Genesis and Eric Hovind as the keynote speakers for the conference. To say they were engaging speakers is an understatement.
Tim Chaffey is the chief curator for the Creation Museum and the new Ark project in Kentucky. He is responsible for writing the text for all the signs you will see in the Ark. He shared many behind the scenes stories, pictures and videos of the Ark project.
Eric Hovind brought his high energy and very exciting science experiments to show the wonders of God's creation. He amazed us all with giant smoke rings and small explosions. He taught the crowd to shoot rubber bands the "scientific way" as an example of the power of the Holy Spirit in our lives. And yes, he even started a few kids on fire! Using bubble solution he created propane filled bubbles. A volunteer/victim from the audience came up, dipped their arm in water, then scooped up a handful of bubbles and Eric lit the bubbles on fire! Of course he reminded all the children "not to try this at home...do it at a friends house."
After lunch, in-spite of light rain, campers went outside to enjoy a variety of Living Waters nature programs. These hands on programs are designed to help campers discover creation for the purpose of drawing them to wonder about the Creator.
Once again, the creation conference proved that Living Waters is indeed a premiere creation resource in the Midwest. We hope you can join us for our fall Creation Adventure Retreat and next sping when Steve Austin joins us for the Coulee Region Creation Conference.
