I am the sort of person who can read and reread (and reread) a book I enjoy, and I can watch movies and videos many, many times if I really enjoy them. Here are two videos by the Is Genesis History? website and YouTube channel I have watched several times. I highly recommend watching them. (Note: You can listen to YouTube videos faster to save time.)
I am really looking forward to meeting Kurt Wise, who tells why he is a Creationist in this first video. Have you ever heard of a teenager who spent a year cutting verses out of a Bible to determine the answer to a theological question? No, I hadn’t either before watching this video. I love Kurt’s enthusiasm for God and His creation.
If the second video, the hour and three-quarters feature film Is Genesis History? had been available 20 years ago, I could have done a much better job defending young-earth creationism. It is an introduction to many different facets of creationism, and more exhaustive videos are available on the website and YouTube channel for each topic if you are interested. This is their description of the movie.
"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, 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.
The reason I have watched this video several times is I always feel more confident in God in these troubled times after watching it. God was definitely in charge of what happened in the past, so He is definitely in charge of what is happening now, and will happen in the future. Plus, it is always faith-building to hear people quoting Scripture that pertains to their occupations.
Who knows? Maybe you will watch them several times too. 🙂
Jesus is coming very soon. Be ready!
4 But you, brethren, are not in darkness, so that this Day should overtake you as a thief. 5 You are all sons of light and sons of the day. We are not of the night nor of darkness. 6 Therefore let us not sleep, as others do, but let us watch and be sober.
1 Thessalonians 5:4-6 NKJV
32 “Now learn this parable from the fig tree: When its branch has already become tender and puts forth leaves, you know that summer is near. 33 So you also, when you see all these things, know that it is near—at the doors! 34 Assuredly, I say to you, this generation will by no means pass away till all these things take place. 35 Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will by no means pass away.”
Matthew 24:32-35 NKJV
34 “But take heed to yourselves, lest your hearts be weighed down with carousing, drunkenness, and cares of this life, and that Day come on you unexpectedly. 35 For it will come as a snare on all those who dwell on the face of the whole earth. 36 Watch therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man.”
Luke 21:34-36 NKJV
