The Glory in Creation

The Glory in Creation

Today on Educate For Life Radio, Kevin has as a guest, David Rives. David Rives believes the Creator left a pattern of His fingerprints across each corner of the universe, found in every crevice on earth, and imprinted in every cell of our bodies. A pattern that David Rives has devoted his life to finding and sharing… while declaring the glory of God through scientific study.

David’s documented field experience in astronomy, paleontology, and archaeology has made him an in-demand speaker with expert knowledge and his powerful and inspirational delivery makes learning about Bible history and science fun and easy for audiences of all ages.

Using the ministries‘ observatory-class telescopes, his breathtaking astrophotography has been featured in textbooks, scientific literature, and shown to audiences around the world. Just as the heavens declare the glory of God, David Rives is proclaiming the manifest presence of God throughout the universe, throughout our world and most especially in the lives of those who know Him.

David’s weekly TV show “Creation in the 21st Century” airs to millions globally on TBN. He is a weekly news columnist on science and the Bible, and is the author of the books “Wonders Without Number” and “Bible Knows Best.”

Tune in for a great discussion of creation versus evolution and how the evidence is plain to see to all. If you want to learn more about David Rives and his ministry, check out https://davidrives.com.

Forged From Reformation

Forged From Reformation

October 31st, 2017 marks an important point in history. It is the 500th anniversary of Martin Luther and the 95 Theses, which kickstarted what would be known as the Protestant Reformation. Corey Marsh joins Kevin to talk about its importance in history and how it is still having an impact or Christianity today. Corey is a seminary professor at Southern California Seminary and he will also talk about a book he helped edit called “Forged From Reformation” which details this incredible history.

It has been five-hundred years since Martin Luther nailed his Ninety-Five Theses to the door at Wittenberg, fanning the flames of the Protestant Reformation. These many years later, we are no less indebted to Luther and the many who accompanied him in times of reform – who set out to return Christian thought and practice to a more biblical orthodoxy. Exemplified by Luther’s five solas (sola scriptura, sola Deo gloria, sola Christus, sola gratia, and sola fide), the Reformation represented and was spurred on by a return to biblical scholarship in the original languages, and by a more consistent application of the literal grammatical-historical hermeneutic.

Forged from the fires of the Reformation’s heightened attention to the Bible and its details, a more refined and systematic dispensational understanding has developed and continues to be shaped. This book, written by a diverse and accomplished group of dispensational scholars, articulates in each and every chapter how, five-hundred years later, dispensational thought upholds and advances the legacy of the Reformation unlike any other theological system in the Christian tradition.

If you want to learn more about the book and the authors, you can go to http://forgedfromreformation.com. You can also order the book from this site. To find out more about Corey and Southern California Seminary, head over to http://socalsem.edu.

Leaving Mormonism

Leaving Mormonism

Today on Educate For Life, Kevin has as his guest Dr. Corey Miller. Corey Miller, Ph.D., is the President/CEO of Ratio Christi (2015). While he grew up in Utah as a sixth-generation Mormon, he came to Christ in 1988 and he has since been a youth and college pastor, a Bible college and university professor, campus minister, lecturer, and first and foremost an evangelist. From 2009-15 he served on staff with Cru’s Faculty Commons ministry at Purdue. He is an Adjunct Professor of Philosophy and Comparative Religions at Indiana University-Kokomo. He is variously published and is co-editor of Is Faith in God Reasonable? Debates in Philosophy, Science, and Rhetoric (2014) and co-author of Ex-Mormon Scholars Tell Why: Testimonies and Reasons (forthcoming, 2017). He holds masters degrees in philosophy, biblical studies, and in philosophy of religion and ethics.

Corey was raised a sixth-generation Mormon in Salt Lake City, Utah, with ancestors who were direct acquaintances with Joseph Smith and Brigham Young. Although Utah Mormonism is less insulated now, growing up he was honestly unaware that there were so many other options outside of Mormonism. But he was not concerned and felt secure in his religion.

Corey was invited to spend the summer of 1988 with a friend at his home in California. But his father made it contingent upon attending a non-denominational Christian camp there called Hume Lake. Although Corey was not living the ideal Mormon life at the time, he had no thought of ever changing religions. He believed Mormonism to be the one true religion. If it were not for the appeal of spending the entire summer on California beaches, he probably would not have attended the camp at all.

I arrived at Hume Lake without any great expectations. To his surprise, the camp speaker delivered a message that week on the topic of hell with a robust presentation of the Gospel. His soul resonated with the message and for the first time in his life, he understood his need for forgiveness. Devastated and in tears, he realized he was a sinner and could not merit forgiveness. He found security in Christ and it was further authenticated by seeing Christ’s love displayed through the people in a way he had not previously encountered. There was something authentic and non-religious about it. Even with his religious upbringing, he never experienced God’s love in that way until he met these people and then met their source, Jesus Christ.

Tune in for a powerful discussion on why Dr. Corey Miller and many other people have left Mormonism. Visit ratiochristi.org to learn more about the mission of Ratio Christi and the impact they are having around the world. You can also learn how you can get involved.

Faith, Freedom, and Public Schools

Faith, Freedom, and Public Schools

Join our team, get educated, make a difference. http://join.educateforlife.org

There is a common perception that the teaching of religion, particularly Christianity, is not allowed in public schools. The most common reason for this is the separation of church and state. But many states not only allow it, they require it as part of their curriculum.

For example, in the state of California, sixth grade students are expected to: “Note the origins of Christianity in the Jewish Messianic prophecies, the life and teachings of Jesus of Nazareth as described in the New Testament, and the contribution of St. Paul the Apostle to the definition and spread of Christian beliefs (e.g., belief in the Trinity, resurrection, salvation).”

Today on Educate For Life, Kevin’s guest is Eric Bueher. Eric is the president of Gateways For Better Education. As a former public school teacher, Eric Buehrer can relate to both sides of the religion-in-schools debate. He writes and lectures extensively on the subject of religion and public education. His audiences include parents, teachers, school administrators, school board members, college students, and churches.

Join Kevin and Eric for an insightful conversation on the connection between religion and public schools. Whether you are a teacher or a parent, we hope this conversation will both inform you and encourage you. If you want to learn more about Gateways To Better Education, check out http://gtbe.org.
