  2. Havnt been there in many years. Have you got photo's of the statues, I would like to check them out?
  3. :) I hope you are sure now!
  4. My brother has, will get them and post here.
  5. I dont mean to be rude (i'm new here) but what is the evidence that points towards creationism. Also I can't seem to find the quote about the UCL professor of zoology, could you point in me the direction as to where to get it. Cheers:)
  6. Sure man. This is the source link, it will also help with your question. http://www.creationtoday.org/creationist-challenge/. And then if you are up for a really good read try this one http://www.trueorigin.org/isakrbtl.asp. If that is not enough there is this one found from simply typing 'science points to intelligent design' which I have read and agree with, http://www.evidencetobelieve.net/evidence_of_design.htm. Google Kent Hovind as well. Don't forget we are also told this in scripture, Romans 1:20.
  7. I would like to add to my post above- that a good solution for the school system is to simply have public religious schools.

    Establish a public school for every religion... then when you go pay your yearly property taxes, you get a voucher to take your child to the school of your choosing. If you do not pay property taxes, then you may choose to send them to one of the religious public schools, or homeschool them. There could be some kind of system in place for accountability, and if someone did not have kids, then they would know their property taxes would fund a school that backs up their religious views.
  8. These are the only ones I could get.
  9. As well as Genesis 1:1-----------Job 12:7-8!!!!
  10. Thanks But I cant seem to open them?
  11. If as Christians, we aren't being oppressed, we're not doing it right.

    John 15:18-21
    “If the world hates you, you know that it hated Me before it hated you. If you were of the world, the world would love its own. Yet because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you. Remember the word that I said to you... If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you... because they do not know Him who sent Me."

    John 16:1-4
    These things I have spoken to you, that you should not be made to stumble. They will put you out of the synagogues [today it might be from churches]; yes, the time is coming that whoever kills you will think that he offers God service. And these things they will do to you because they have not known the Father nor Me. But these things I have told you, that when the time comes, you may remember that I told you of them."

    John 17:14-18
    "I have given them Your word; and the world has hated them because they are not of the world, just as I am not of the world. I do not pray that You should take them out of the world, but that You should keep them from the evil one."

    Galatians 5:11
    "And I, brethren, if I still preach circumcision, why do I still suffer persecution? Then the offense of the cross has ceased."
  12. This Scripture can be horrendously abused. The Westboro Baptist Church uses John 15:18-21 to perversely justify the hatred they receive from others. (And that is why they run on hate.) You are not exempt from this if the reasons people hate you are irrelevant to your Christian identity. They have every right to persecute you if dishonestly hide behind the Cross while working your iniquity.
  13. If we teach the full Gospel, We will most likely be hated by many.
    All to often, the full Gospel is not taught.
    The Gospel of love, grace, peace, forgiveness, and eternal life never generates hatred.
    It is the Gospel of repentance, for which we are hated.
    Because the Gospel of repentance generates hatred, many avoid teaching the full Gospel.
    Many have been deceived by false prophets, who teach a feel good philosophy that satisfies the "itching ear"
    This false teaching, promises love, peace, grace, and eternal life without repentance.
    Without the Gospel of repentance, the full Gospel is not taught.
    For without repentance, there is no love, no grace, no peace, no forgiveness, and no eternal life.
