School shootings appear to be on the rise. According to some sources, there have already been 17 school shootings in 2018. That’s twice as many as the first two months of last year. What is causing this rise in school shootings? Is there a solution to this problem?
Kevin’s guest today is Nate Landis with Urban Youth Collaborative. According to Nate Landis, there is a good solution that would solve gun violence in schools and it isn’t gun control. The real solution is to get churches involved in schools.
Nate Landis and the Urban Youth Collaborative sponsor student-led Christian groups that work their schools and communities to impact them for Christ. Urban Youth Collaborative (UYC) is a coalition of 45 church partners that support student-initiated and student-led faith clubs at 97 middle and high school campuses in San Diego County and motivational assemblies in Mexico. Students serve physical and spiritual food to over three thousands of their friends each week and look for practical ways to make a difference in their local communities. In 2017, young people generated over 30,000 hours of voluntary community service in Southern California and around the world!
Tune in to hear how Nate Landis believes the issue of school shooting can be solved by students from the inside out. If you want to find out more about Urban Youth Collaborative, head over to https://www.uyc.org. You can also learn how to get involved to change your community and/or your school.
Today on Educate For Life, Kevin has as his guest Doug Axe. Douglas Axe is the director of Biologic Institute. His research uses both experiments and computer simulations to examine the functional and structural constraints on the evolution of proteins and protein systems.
After a Caltech PhD he held postdoctoral and research scientist positions at the University of Cambridge, the Cambridge Medical Research Council Centre, and the Babraham Institute in Cambridge. His work and ideas have been featured in many scientific journals, including the Journal of Molecular Biology, the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, and Nature, and in such books as Signature in the Cell and Darwin’s Doubt by Stephen Meyer and Life’s Solution by Simon Conway Morris.
Throughout his distinguished and unconventional career, engineer-turned-molecular-biologist Douglas Axe has been asking the questions that much of the scientific community would rather silence. Now, he presents his conclusions in this brave and pioneering book. Axe argues that the key to understanding our origin is the “design intuition”—the innate belief held by all humans that tasks we would need knowledge to accomplish can only be accomplished by someone who has that knowledge. According to Axe, for the ingenious task of inventing life, this knower can only be God.
Starting with the hallowed halls of academic science, Axe dismantles the widespread belief that Darwin’s theory of evolution is indisputably true, showing instead that a gaping hole has been at its center from the beginning. He then explains in plain English the science that proves our design intuition scientifically valid. Lastly, he uses everyday experience to empower ordinary people to defend their design intuition, giving them the confidence and courage to explain why it has to be true and the vision to imagine what biology will become when people stand up for this truth.

Today on Educate For Life, Kevin has as his guest Thomas Purifoy. Thomas Purifoy is the producer of “Is Genesis History?”, a movie all about determining whether Genesis can be proven to be actual history or a series of mere legends.
Is Genesis History? features over a dozen scientists and scholars explaining how the world intersects with the history recorded in Genesis. From rock layers to fossils, from lions to stars, from the Bible to artifacts, this fascinating film will change the way you see the world.
The film’s goal is to provide a reasonable case for Creation in six normal days, a real Adam and Eve, an actual fall, a global flood, and a tower of Babel. Dr. Del Tackett, the creator of “The Truth Project,” serves as your guide—hiking through canyons, climbing up mountains, and diving below the sea—in an exploration of two competing views … one compelling truth.
If you want to learn more about the movie and the experts involved in making the film, check out IsGenesisHistory.com. You can also purchase the movie either on DVD or download and stream it.
Suicide is the second leading cause of death for those age 10 to 24. Every day in the U.S. and average of over 3,470 people attempt suicide. These statistics are staggering and tragic. Why are so many considering and even attempting suicide? Is there anything we can do to reduce these numbers?
Today on Educate For Life Kevin has as his guest, Ray Comfort. Ray Comfort is the Founder/President/CEO of Living Waters Publications. Ray Comfort is a well-known evangelist and apologist. After relocating from New Zealand to Southern California in the late 1980s, Ray introduced a long line of pastors and churches to a biblical teaching which he called Hell’s Best Kept Secret. The positive and enthusiastic response that followed took Ray’s Living Waters Publications ministry to a whole new level.
Ray Comfort has produced several movies speaking to the truth of God and the Bible, including his newest film, Exit: The Appeal of Suicide. In this movie, he explores depression, its sources, and why so many see suicide as the only way out.
