In the Beginning There was an Atom

Have any of you ever been frustrated by debating an atheist?  Many times we, who believe in the Bible, are accused of checking our brains at the door when it comes to critical thinking.  I have heard it said that we are simply believing in fairy tales, tooth-fairies and Santa Clause when it comes to our belief that God created it all.

Here is a great article that was in the Wall Street Journal yesterday that you can use as ammunition when you debate a "scientific atheist."

According to a recent Associated Press poll a majority of Americans—51%—do not believe the universe began with the "big bang."

The skepticism of half the country may seem startling, given how essential the big-bang theory is to modern cosmology, but there is a good reason for it. The big bang is at first hard to swallow. I am a physics writer, and yet I remember how perplexed I was many years ago when I heard MIT cosmologist Alan Guth describe the universe expanding within a fraction of a second from the size of an atom to "as big as a marble." My initial thought was: How could he possibly know the size of the entire universe when it was less than a second old? Believing in the big bang seemed to require a leap of faith.

And if you feel uncomfortable with big-bang cosmology, you're in excellent company: The greatest physicist of the 20th century, Albert Einstein, stubbornly refused to believe in it. Ironically, it was a Catholic priest who first came up with the big-bang idea in 1927. The Belgian priest Georges Lemaître, who was also an astronomer and physicist, theoretically deduced the expansion of the universe and proposed that it was launched from a "primeval atom"—the process later known as the big bang.

At the time of Lemaître's prescient idea, not only Einstein but other physicists and astronomers believed that the universe was static, with no beginning or end. Lemaître did not buy this supposition. He believed in the story of Genesis, which outlines the birth of the universe, and he searched for a way to prove it scientifically. He presented his complicated mathematical results on the beginning of the universe—based on Einstein's own general theory of relativity—in a 1931 meeting in London of the British Science Association that was dedicated to the relationship between science and spirituality.

And so the big-bang theory is verified not only by the Bicep evidence, but also from decades of data on the microwave background radiation in space ("embers of the big bang") as well as high-energy particle collisions from the Large Hadron Collider (a tiny-scale simulation of the big bang). It also fundamentally does not conflict with scripture. So why do so many deny it?

The culprits might be "scientific atheists," a small but vocal group of thinkers who employ science to claim that there is no God. Some argue that the universe came into existence all on its own. In particular, physicist Lawrence M. Krauss's 2012 book "A Universe from Nothing" insists that the big bang occurred within a complete emptiness, and thus there is no need for a "God." But the key assumption of Mr. Krauss's conjecture is flawed and at odds with modern cosmology. The big bang did not occur in "nothing." It had to be spawned in some kind of pre-existent medium, known by physicists as "quantum foam," though we don't know exactly what it is.

Despite the damage scientific atheists are doing to public opinion, the truth is that—at least with respect to big-bang cosmology—science and faith are not at odds. For it was the story in Genesis that inspired the big bang's founder to discover how the universe came to be. And it was Genesis that provided the stimulus for the first mathematical calculations that led to the "primeval atom." The 51% of Americans who deny the big bang—if they do so because they think the theory conflicts with faith—should come to trust our science.


So yes, God DID speak it all into existence...exactly as the Bible says.  And yes, a Big Bang is probably exactly what it looked like!  Boom!  Here is a universe!!!

But don't let "scientific atheists" claim to have the high ground.  Nothing in science has EVER disproved the Bible....the more that we discover of our universe...the more it SCREAMS of proof of our Creator.

Remember, atheists don't want there to be a Creator-God...because they hate the idea that one day they WILL have to answer and bow to Him...and the penalty for their unbelief will be severe.

Humongous Solar Flare

It is really quite humbling to realize how out of control we really other words, we are in control of nothing.

We all live on a massive rock that is hurtling millions of miles per year around the sun...and we can't steer the rock in the least.  We just go wherever the earth goes.

We don't control the temp of the sun, we can't control ocean currents, we don't control asteroids that could smash into us, and the list goes on and on.

With that being said, the sun has been in a rather explosive rage as of late.  It was only recently revealed that in 2012, earth narrowly missed flying right through a solar explosion that could have knocked out all of our electricity for months.  That would have been interesting....

Today we find that NASA recently photographed a solar flare that was 'humongous' and was the best observed flare EVER!

Four spacecraft and one ground-based observatory recorded the eruption of a powerful X-class solar flare on March 29, making it the best-observed such event in history, NASA officials say.

Solar flares are powerful explosions with energies exceeding that of millions of hydrogen bombs. Never before has an X-class flare — the most energetic type — been observed by so many telescopes at once. A NASA video of the monster solar flare features several views of the March 29 sun storm.

The data from the unprecedented observation could help scientists better understand what catalyzes flares, and possibly predict when they will happen in the future — valuable information, considering that flares can cause radio blackouts on Earth, potentially disrupting aircraft, ship and military communication. 

In addition, NASA's Solar Terrestrial Relations Observatory (STEREO) and the Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO), a joint NASA/European Space Agency effort, studied a coronal mass ejection (CME) that accompanied the flare.

CMEs, superheated clouds of plasma blasted into space at millions of miles per hour, can wreak havoc if they hit Earth, spawning geomagnetic storms that can potentially disrupt radio communications, GPS signals and power grids.


Jesus holds all things together..."through Him all things are made".  This world isn't going to end one second before Jesus says so.  America is not going to go dark one second before Jesus says so...but isn't it amazing to observe how many people can look at this awesome creation and these startling photographs, and still come to the conclusion that "there is no god?"

"The fool says in his heart, 'There is no God..."

More evidence to those who have heard The Word and believe The Word that The Word is true...all of it.

Harvard to Host Satanic Mass

Remember friends...I'm not WRITING the headlines...I'm just posting some as I come across them.  It's up to you to decide whether they are a) Appalling b) Awful, c) Concerning, d) Prophetic, e) Interesting, f) Boring, g) Yawn

Personally, I think this next bit of news is b,...awful.  Especially when you look back on Harvard's illustrious history and remember that it used to train future ministers of the Gospel.

( – A Satanic Black Mass reenactment is scheduled to take place at the Queen’s Head Pub in Memorial Hall at Harvard University on May 12, with the Mass performed by The Satanic Temple, which is being hosted for the event by the Harvard Extension Cultural Studies Club.

A non-consecrated communion host will be used in the reenactment, according to Lucien Greaves, spokesman for The Satanic Temple.

“While Black Masses are supposed to utilize a consecrated host, ours is merely representative of a consecrated host,” Greaves told  “It is not consecrated. We neither believe in nor invoke the supernatural.”

“To us, the Black Mass is an amalgamation that developed through time based on witch-hunting fears and later adopted by some as a declaration of personal Independence against what they felt to be the stifling authority of the church,” said Greaves.

Harvard University was launched in 1639 through a financial gift from the Protestant clergyman John Harvard.  In its early decades, Harvard trained many Protestant ministers who went on to serve the various Christian churches of New England.

The Satanic Temple, which is scheduled to perform the reenactment Black Mass, is the same group that is trying to have a statue of Satan (depicted as “Baphomet”) installed on the grounds of the Oklahoma State Capitol.


"But aren't reporting on all the awesome things that are happening all over the world!"

Ummm...yes, I am....when I can find the cool stories about Muslims coming to Christ by the thousands...I have blogged on it.

Also, if Jesus had said to "watch" for all the awesome stuff like peace, love, unity, selflessness, harmony, and nations coming together...we might be WATCHING AND WAITING FOR THOSE THINGS....BUT HE DIDN'T.

He said to watch for wars, rumors of wars, race against race, earthquakes, famines, violence, selfishness, love growing cold, pestilence, false teachings in the church, etc....

"But because you are lukewarm, I will SPIT you out of my mouth," said Jesus.

So watch!  Pay attention! Pray always!  Be busy!  Make a disciple!  Read your Bible!...and don't put a whole lot of confidence in the US government to bail out this sinking we plunge headlong into immorality, debauchery and every man doing as he sees fit.

God never promised us he would SPARE us the hardships that go along with living in a falling nation that has rejected His Son....He promised that he would walk with us THROUGH THE FIRE.

A "Positive" Abortion Story

Friends...if you want to see how far our culture has fallen...please read this story about a smiling woman having an abortion on video to show everyone that "it's really not that bad."

I am reminded of the last verse in Judges as I read this article, "In those days Israel had no king; every man (and woman) did as he saw fit."

Remember, God told the prophet Jeremiah that he was called for his job as prophet before he was put in his mother's womb!  God knew us before we were created!!  He knows us all in the womb! We are humans at conception!!  To that there can be NO DOUBT!

Killing a baby because you don't want stretch marks or you want to avoid the embarrassing stares from others IS NOT GOING TO PLAY WELL at judgment please, if you are reading this and haven't asked Jesus to save you and cleanse you from all your sin, I would suggest you do it now.

It’s time for all of us to understand that we are at war, and lives are at stake.

The enemy — the self-worshipping death cult known as modern liberalism — has become increasingly vile, violent, and deceitful, and so we must become increasingly bold, fearless, and aggressive in our response.

If you don’t believe me, consider this video.

Before you click on that link, I should warn you of its contents. It depicts a woman named Emily Letts — self described ‘patient advocate’ — getting an abortion. Now, Emily’s clip does not show any of the possibly less palatable aspects of hiring a contract killer to murder your child. Instead, it shows her smiling and giggling about how she got pregnant but ‘wasn’t ready for a baby.’ The portion where she actually gets the abortion only gives a glimpse of her face, as she chuckles and goes on about how ‘lucky’ she is, and how ‘supportive’ all of her abortion doctors have been.

It’s funny, I suppose murderers tend to be ‘supportive’ when you pay them 400 dollars to do what they do best.

When the ‘procedure’ is completed, Emily says “cool!” and is wheeled out of the room, childfree and grinning from ear to ear.

“I’m done! YAY!”

She laughs and celebrates as if she’d just gotten a tattoo, or her belly button pierced.

The video then jumps forward a few days, and treats us to Emily’s reflections on how the slaughter of her child has positively impacted her life. In perhaps the most bizarre and unsettling part of the entire bizarre and unsettling video, she says this:
“I feel in awe of the fact that I can make a baby. I can make a life. I knew what I was doing was right because it was right for me, and no one else.”

The last sentence perfectly encapsulates the entire philosophy of American ‘progressivism.’ I know what I’m doing is right, because it’s right for me. One day, I believe that phrase will be the epithet on the tombstone of modern culture.

I know that it is right — because it’s right for me. So succinct, so emblematic, so tragic.


You know we are living in the days that Isaiah prophesied...when good will be called evil and evil will be called good.

So how will WE, who claim to be followers of Christ, continue to be salt and light while morality and depravity come crashing in all around us?

The Bible tells us that the righteous in Judah, like Daniel and his friends, got punished right along with the wicked...they ALL got hauled off to Babylon.  Of course God will see his people through....but we are kidding ourselves if we still believe that God will never judge America....because we are mostly "good" people.

We have allowed 50,000,000 little babies to be killed for $300 a piece...and had them sacrificed to the false idol of CONVENIENCE.  The blood of those babies HAS to be calling out to their Creator for "justice!"

Oklahoma Issued Earthquake Advisory

In our never-ending quest to bring you news with the words "ever" and "never" mentioned...we have this coming out of Oklahoma...

(OKLAHOMA CITY) -- For the first time ever, on Monday the United States Geological Survey issued an earthquake advisory for a state east of the Rocky Mountains, Oklahoma.

The USGS said on Monday that the risk of an earthquake of magnitude greater than 5.0 has noticeably increased in central Oklahoma. Robert Williams, a geophysicist with the USGS, said that the agency can't predict when or where the state's next earthquake might take place.

"This is an advisory based on the increase in earthquake rate over the last five years, and especially the last six months," Williams told ABC News.

On a per-mile basis, there have been almost as many tremors in Oklahoma as there have been in California this year, Williams said. He added that the increased risk may be related to fracking activity, saying that "the contributing factor may be related to injection and cycling of fluid at the subsurface, associated with oil and gas activity in central and north-central Oklahoma.


"For the first time EVER..."

Well, one thing is for sure...there will be earthquakes in various places...and Oklahoma having as many tremors as California certainly seems to qualify as SOMETHING INTERESTING.

Hollywood Turns Against Sharia

I must say...this news is an interesting development...and maybe a really good one.

The Sultan of Brunei recently declared that his country will begin to implement Sharia law.
Ultimately this will include stoning gays and adulterers to death.

Of course this has been going on in numerous Muslim countries for centuries...but Hollywood didn't seem to really care.

What got their attention this time??  It turns out the Sultan owns the Beverly Hills now Hollywood is going to boycott the hotel...and that is what is making news.

After the owner of The Beverly Hills Hotel, Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah, announced the implementation of strict Sharia Law in the Southeast Asia state—including stoning homosexuals to death—celebrities and prominent organizations have decided to boycott the establishment.

In recent weeks, the Hollywood establishment has given a collective middle finger to The Beverly Hills Hotel, along with the other hotel interests in the Dorchester Collection—including London’s Dorchester, Paris’ Hotel Plaza Athénée, and the Hotel Bel-Air. The Dorchester Collection, a subsidiary of The Dorchester Group, is owned by Brunei Investment Agency (BIA), an arm of the Ministry of Finance of Brunei— which is controlled by the Sultan of Brunei, Hassanal Bolkiah. Last October, the 67-year-old dictator announced his plans to introduce Sharia law in Brunei—a strict Islamic penal code calling for penalties including flogging, the severing of limbs, and death by stoning for acts like abortion, adultery, and homosexuality. The enforcement will be introduced in three phases, from least severe (phase one: fines) to most severe (phase three: death by stoning), with the initial phase taking effect May 1. 

“Today... I place my faith in and am grateful to Allah the almighty to announce that tomorrow, Thursday 1 May 2014, will see the enforcement of Sharia law phase one, to be followed by the other phases,” the Sultan proclaimed, according to AFP. He also called Sharia law “part of the great history of our nation” that sees “special guidance from God.”  

The United Nations reacted with indignation, calling the matter one of “deep concern,” and Hollywood has decided to follow suit. On April 22, four days after LGBT organization The Gill Action Fund decided to move a planned conference from the hotel, Oscar host Ellen DeGeneres took to Twitter to announce her boycott of The Beverly Hills Hotel and the Hotel Bel-Air over the Sultan of Brunei’s anti-gay stance, tweeting a link to a story on The Daily Beast.

See it here;

Of course Hollywood hasn't seemed to care about Muslims stoning women to death, or killing their daughters in "honor killings" or Muslims giving their daughters away in forced marriages to pedophiles....but when news got out that they could stone GAYS...that was too much for Hollywood to stand for!!

So maybe this will be a GOOD THING if the actors of Hollywood learn what Sharia is all about. Maybe they will end up going onto the talk shows and red carpets of America and start drawing attention to the fact that SHARIAH IS ISLAM!!

Yes, there are many moderate Muslims who DON'T want Sharia...but the vast majority of Muslims all over the world DO WANT IT.

Hey...maybe this will lead to Hollywood taking a closer look at Hamas and Fatah in Gaza and the West Bank?  Maybe they will start to understand who rules over those Arabs their?  Maybe they will start to question their unending support for another Arab State called Palestine?  Maybe they should realize they shouldn't support a boycott of Israel...because Israel stands AGAINST Sharia law in the Middle East?

Well, one can hope!

Jews Preparing to Leave Ukraine

Have you noticed quite a few articles, as of late, that report of anti-Semitism?

Here is one more;


Most of the Jews living in Ukraine are now filling out paperwork to prepare for emigration to Israel if necessary, Ukraine’s chief rabbi, Yaacov Dov Bleich, said Sunday in a radio interview.

While he stopped short of calling for mass evacuation, Bleich said he is encouraged by those Ukrainian Jews who are making Aliyah, or emigrating to the Jewish state, to “take care of themselves.”

In an interview on Aaron Klein’s Sunday night radio show on New York’s 970 AM The Answer, Bleich squarely blamed the violence ripping the country apart on Russia and its allies in Ukraine.

He stated, “All of the violence, and when I say all, I mean every single case of violence of Ukrainian against Ukrainian has been instigated and implemented by the pro-Russians – initiated, implemented, instigated.”

In an interview on Aaron Klein’s Sunday night radio show on New York’s 970 AM The Answer, Bleich squarely blamed the violence ripping the country apart on Russia and its allies in Ukraine.

He stated, “All of the violence, and when I say all, I mean every single case of violence of Ukrainian against Ukrainian has been instigated and implemented by the pro-Russians – initiated, implemented, instigated.”Regarding Ukraine’s Jewish community, which has been facing an increasingly hostile environment, Bleich stressed he is not calling for mass evacuation “and we aren’t telling people to run away because who knows what will happen, what will be.”

He continued: “We still are quite optimistic. However, at the same time, most of the Jews and whoever has a possibility is preparing documents so that if they want to make Aliyah there will be nothing to hold them up.”


Don't be surprised to find more and more articles reporting of violence and intimidation against Jews exploding all over the world.  Don't be surprised to even find it growing here in America.  So when you see Jewish cemeteries desecrated with swastikas...don't be surprised.  When you read that Hitler's book, MEIN KAMPF is a best seller in many nations...don't be surprised.  When you see even the Evangelical church of America starting to side with the Arab lies surrounding Palestine...and threatening to boycott Israel...don't be surprised.

The Jews WILL BE regathered back to God's Holy Land for the prophecies of the Last Days to be fulfilled.  Some will go back there willingly, but some will need to be forced out of their comfortable positions in foreign countries...and I believe we may be seeing that play out right before our very eyes.

The Importance of Prophecy

Pastor Rick Warren seems to have a disdain for prophecy...which is funny since somewhere between 25 and 30% of the Bible has something to do with prophecy.

In his bestselling book, The Purpose Driven Life, Rick Warren mocks Bible prophecy when he writes, “If you want Jesus to come back sooner, focus on fulfilling your mission, not figuring out prophecy.” He then goes on to characterize prophecy as a “distraction” and says that anyone who lets himself get involved in distractions like studying prophecy: “Is not fit for the kingdom of God.”

Some people have told me, "Dennis, why waste time thinking about the things that are coming...just stay focused on doing Kingdom work today!"

Ummm...why would anyone call studying God's Word a waste of time? How about Revelation 19:10 which says: “For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.”

As I have said NUMEROUS TIMES on this blog...DON'T GO DIG A HOLE IN MONTANA and stock it with food and ammo!!  Don't have a spirit of fear! Don't be a hoarder!!

DO have your eyes open for the mission field that God has placed you in and be ready to have an answer for the hope that you have!  Your neighbors, co-workers and friends are desperate to hear the words of eternal life..SO GET BUSY!!

Remember, Jesus told us to "Watch!"  He also told us that if we don't wake up THEN he will come as a thief in the night and we will have no clue!....BUT if we are awake to prophecy then His coming WON'T surprise us like a thief!!

So what would you rather say to Jesus when he comes, "Wow!  I had no clue you were coming!  I was just eating, drinking, marrying, giving in marriage, going to Vikings games and building my 401k...had I known you were coming, I may lived these last years differently!"...OR...."Jesus!  I am so pumped to see you!  We were watching all the signs that you gave us and we were BUSY ABOUT doing your work as we lived EXPECTANTLY awaiting your arrival!"

With that as a backdrop, please take a few minutes and read this article titled, THE IMPORTANCE OF PROPHECY....because it really is important.


Our time here on earth is SHORT!...I don't care if Jesus comes tomorrow or 100 years from now. Most of us reading this article will be GONE from this earth in the next 50 the finish line is in let's all run with eternal purpose.

Some years ago an older man at my office saw that I was getting excited about Bible reading and he told me, "Dennis, don't get so heavenly minded that you become no earthly good."  Wow!  Deep!  I thought that maybe he quoted that from the Bible!

I wish I had the spiritual maturity at that time to say, "Jim, don't get so earthly minded that you become no heavenly good."

So which one are you?

New "International Order"

Many prophecy watchers have been watching movement towards a NEW WORLD ORDER.  This new order will be necessary for the Antichrist to grab hold of it and usher in the Mark of the Beast.

Today we find this headline from a Chinese News Source, and the main photo is Putin shaking hands with a Chinese leader;

Obama forced to concede new 'international order'

The rise of China and Russia is forcing the US president, Barack Obama, to concede the dawn of a new "international order" that is no longer controlled by the United States, reports Duowei News, an outlet run by overseas Chinese.

Delivering a commencement speech over the weekend at the US Military Academy at West Point, Obama said he would seek a new international order with more international cooperation, stronger international standards and institutions and alliances to help resolve challenges ranging from terrorism, nuclear proliferation, climate change to economic decline.

Starting from the end of World War II and particularly after the collapse of the Soviet Union, the US has not had any real challengers to its power, leading it to make decisions that disrupt international order, such as its ill-based decision to invade Iraq without United Nations approval, without many repercussions, Duowei said.

As such, the US idea of international order is one in which the global rules don't apply to themselves but do apply to the rest of the world, Duowei added.

History has proven, however, that there is no power that can maintain its hegemony forever and there are signs that the US is losing its grip, Duowei said, adding that the impact of the global financial crisis on the US and Europe has paved the way for China and Russia to re-emerge.

The United States is not sitting idly by as the power of China and Russia rises, but rather they have continued to strengthen their presence in the Asia-Pacific region, however, through strategic alliances with Japan and the Philippines, both of which are embroiled in tense terrritorial disputes with China.

While the Philippines has little effect on international order apart from being a constant headache to China, Japan presents a different story especially after Obama affirmed its commitment to defending Tokyo in the event of a conflict over the Diaoyutai, Duowei said.

Faced with losing its place in the global pecking order, the United States can no longer continue to act as though it is the leader of the world, Duowei said, adding that the only option is for Washington to ditch its double standards and jointly safeguard international order by respecting the political systems and development path of different countries.


Funny how this Chinese author states that we are "Faced with losing its place in the global pecking order..."

Yep...$17 trillion in debt and $50 trillion more unfunded government liabilities coming in the next few decades will certainly challenge our ability to function as the leader of the world.

Obama's hope to "Lead from behind" may come as our reality a lot sooner than anyone thought possible.

Of course as we read the Bible, we realize that the current system needs to have some sort of major collapse/ that the new system can be ushered in.

I am amazed that our house of cards hasn't collapsed already...and am beginning to seriously wonder if it isn't being held up ONLY to collapse AFTER the Rapture of the church.

Remember that America's economy would probably be the most SERIOUSLY affected when the trumpet blows...announcing the Bridegroom is at hand!  And when America falls, the crash will reverberate across the world.

Even so...come Lord Jesus!

Class of '65 Had Dreams....

I was driving to the office this morning and pulled up behind a mammoth motor home pulling a mammoth trailer that clearly had a fancy car inside.

On the back of the trailer in large letters was written;


A few thoughts....if you have to advertise to the world that you ARE living your dream...are you really?

Also, doesn't that seem like a desperate cry for help..."Look at me!!  I'm retired with a huge motor home and fancy car!  Pay attention to me!!"

And finally, when he meets Jesus...will his "DREAM LIFE" of driving his motor home around to car shows bear eternal fruit?  Will his dream be rewarded in the next life??

Now don't get me wrong, I'm not judging him...maybe he is a HUGE witness for Christ when he pulls into all these car shows...maybe he hands out Jesus pamphlets where ever the road leads him....BUT....when you see a sign like that painted so prominently on his prized possessions...I'm just going to take a wild guess and say that MAYBE those possessions are his false idol??

It's a good reminder to us all to focus on eternal things and spend our time using our spiritual gifts so that when we meet Christ he might say to us, "Well done good and faithful servant!"

I heard an awesome quote last week from a lady that sponsors children in Africa...."Don't worry about failing at something that is important...instead, you should worry about being successful at something that is meaningless." convicting....
