The Mountains of Mountain Mysteries
The Secrets of Sinai
How could the Bible maps be inaccurate, and which are we going to believe, Scripture or the maps? Galatians 4:25 tells us that Mt. Sinai is "in Arabia," but maps show it to be in the Sinai Peninsula. But, isn't the Bible the Word of God, and didn't the apostle Paul live much closer to the time of Moses than the map makers of modernity? Certainly. We produced a blog post that touches on a number of points which show that the Bible is true and man-made maps are wrong! With present-day Saudi Arabia being east of the two gulfs of the Red Sea, and the Sinai Peninsula being between the two gulfs, Galatians and the maps cannot both be correct. This presentation uses both archaeological evidences and Scriptural points to contrast the different ideas about the crossing of the Red Sea and the true location of Mt. Sinai. The Biblical importance of this mountain is astounding!
The Cause of Creation
Highlighting the pro-evolution “Clergy Project Letter” (signed by over 13,000 clergy across America), this presentation incorporates a variety of sources to reveal current trends in modern Christianity and presents the need for using creationism and critical thinking in our culture today. In addition, this message shows how important the foundation of creation is to everything Christians believe, particularly the Gospel.
The Importance of Evidences
Why did Jesus appear to over 500 at one time (1 Corinthians 15:6)? How did He handle Thomas, “the Doubter”? This session shares the Biblical emphasis on physical evidences and how those who believe the Bible must use proofs that God has provided. Atheists, agnostics, and skeptics are committed to communicating anti-God, anti-Bible messages in great ways today. How can their views be countered? The key is to use evidences.
Design & Devastation
Are there important messages today in Mt. Rushmore and the volcanic island of Krakatoa? Design and Devastation uses Mt. Rushmore to point to intelligent design. Were the heads on this mountain formed over millions of years of wind or water erosion, or thermal expansion of the rock? Hardly! Yet, evolutionary-minded scientists tell us that the real people (represented by the heads) formed over millions of years of chance processes that required no Designer. Is this belief scientific? In addition, what does the power of water teach? Highlighting other modern catastrophes, this message highlights the 1883 eruption of Krakatoa and ties it to what happened during the Flood.
Did the Biblical Flood really happen and are there evidences for such a massive event? Were dinosaurs on the ark? This session highlights the importance of the Flood, using the Bible and video docuentation as “pieces of a puzle” in the ongoing search for the ark of Noah. Has it been found? Most importantly, this session highlights the profound Biblical significance of the Flood and its significance for Christians today!
Mt. St. Helens and the Flood—Lotsa Water, Lotsa Mud
Mt. St. Helens, a volcano located in Washington State, has been described as “God’s gift to the creationist.” The 1980 eruption was the result of a 5.2 earthquake which caused a massive landslide, releasing great pressure from under the earth. Mudflows carved brand new canyons through solid rock in 9 hours, creating terrain that is eerily similar to canyon systems like that of Canyonlands National Monument outside of Moab, UT. Yet, these and other canyons are described as having been formed over millions of years. Is such a time frame scientific? Or is it just a belief about the evidence? Video documentary shows how this relatively small volcano is an excellent illustration of what happened at the time of the great Flood of Noah’s day!
