Some people want us to believe that CREATION is complicated and hard to understand, but it really is simple. In the first chapter of the Bible (Genesis 1) God spells out CREATION in 31 short verses. Just because God said it and it is in His Word (The Bible) CREATION is fact. At the same time, when we study nature the fact of CREATION is proved again and again. See what I mean by checking out the web-site below...

Most often when people think and talk about resources, they are talking about things like oil or coal and stuff like that. What many people don’t seem to get is that the most important, most valuable resource in all the world is KIDS. When we do things to help and protect KIDS, then we are actually protecting our most precious resource.
Noah Jones gets this, and so he started “A Case For Dignity”. He collects suit cases to be given to kids who are suddenly moved from their homes into foster care. Noah collects suit cases to keep kids from possibly feeling like trash being thrown out, when their stuff gets packed into garbage bags. Go to acasefordignity.blogspot.com to learn more. Noah told me, if you write him, he will be happy to send you information about how he started "A Case For Diginity". Hey, maybe you will be inspired to do something for kids who need help in your community.
Did you ever think you might be interested in ARCHAEOLOGY? I found this video on a web page called "Archaeology and the Bible". The web-site is www.oklahomahomeschool.com/archaeolBible.html#bible and there you can learn lots more about becoming an archaeologist! (Hey Dad and Mom, this web-site contains a free homeschool curriculum on the study of archaeology written by Cindy Downes.)
Our new friends at the Alpha Omega Institute know and share all kinds of interesting facts and information that prove our world could not have happened by accident. God being the omniscient (all knowing) and omnipresent (everywhere all the time) being that He is, carefully designed and then created everything we see, hear, smell, taste, feel and know. On their website, AOI has a great section just for kids called Kids Corner. Check it out, but be aware, you'll have FUN and learn cool things, too!
To really understand what God has created, we need to study the Bible and science together. Archaeology is one particular kind of science that proves and is proved by the Bible. Luke Chandler is a Bible Archaeologist who travels each year to Israel to help us learn more about history and the Bible. In the videos below he shows the places where David the shepherd boy and future king fought the giant Goliath.
We learn from our parents by watching the things they do and the way they live. As LOBOC's story of Manasseh shows us, it is also very important to learn from our parents by listening to and obeying what they tell us!
NOPE! People did not "evolve" from monkeys. We were created by a real and loving God. At the same time, the Bible and Science can and should be studied together to give us the most complete understanding of this wonderful world God created for us. Laverna Patterson of TeachingHearts.org has filled her website with loads of FUN and insteresting experiments, studys and projects to help kids understand how science and the Bible work together.
Knowing what the Bible says, helps Bible Archaeologists prove when they have found a place for which they are looking. This video is a good example. Listen closely and you will hear the narrator mention finding evidence of an event noted in the Bible that happened at Hazor.
Sometimes to understand things that are old, you have to study things that are new, and sometimes when you do this, you discover the very old things and new things are the same. For example the sheep pens in this video are much like sheep pens in the Middle East have been for thousands of years.
Archaeology is very important for everyone! The many things we can discover through this science help us better understand the world we live in and the God who created it. The way people are today, is very much influenced by the people who lived in the past. When we understand them better, we can understand ourselves better.
This is exactly what I talk about. Good people of science form a hypothesis (a theory or guess) that the Bible is not real or true. Then, when they set out to do the work and the research to prove it, they find out they are wrong, and the Bible is real and true! Good archaeology is one science that has proved the truth of the Bible over and over.
You might wonder why a Bible Archaeologist would need to learn different languages, well, in this video Randall Niles talks about a really interesting rock called the "Rosetta Stone". To translate the writing on the stone, the archaeologists had to know either Greek, Demotic or Egyptian Hieroglyphic...
