Transformed by the Evidence

I have been fascinated by the stories of Christian scientists who once believed in evolution, but were, Transformed by the Evidence.
When I was in high school, and even microbiology in nursing school a few years ago, I learned that DNA was read in one direction. There was no mention of layering or backwards coding. Jay Seegert, a creation speaker, talks about the dynamics of DNA in one DVD.
And in his book Transformed by the Evidence, by Jerry Bergmann Ph.D he includes the account of Tom Hennigan, who is an associate professor of biology at Truett-McConnell College. Mr. Hennigan gives a stunning analogy of DNA complexity.
Let me quote what he wrote regarding the complexity of DNA. He explains that DNA is made up of "multiple instructions embedded within multiple instructions in multiple directions." He goes on to explain, "if you read the book from front to back, you would learn all about building a car. If you read it from back to front, you would learn how to design the electrical circuitry of a house. Starting in the middle and reading forward then backward you could learn a new language or, alternatively, if you began reading in the middle, reading backward, and then forward, you would learn calculus. The complexity is mind boggling and inconsistent with random natural process.

Yes, indeed, "In the beginning, God"....

This book, "Transformed by the Evidence"  has been so phenomenal! Men and women are coming to know Christ, or develop a deeper walk with Him because of the evidence leading to belief in a historical Genesis chapters 1-11. This is too good to not share:

By one contributing author, Jonathan Bartlett, "When I believed in an old earth, it meant that most of history was disconnected from the Biblical narrative. Now, when I think of the Paleozoic, I think of the onset of the flood; when I think of the stars, I think of the fourth day of Creation; when I think of the K/T boundary (the geological layer above the dinosaurs with very few fossils), I think about the end of the flood, and Noah releasing the animals to repopulate the earth. Christianity becomes not just one part of my life, and one part of the history of the world, but rather a total truth about the whole history of the earth."

Enjoy some pictures from the summer fairs

Calvary Chapel Madison plays a big part in the booth in Dane County. What a privilege to share God's Word with the hundreds of families, teens, college students and adults and  kids. We pray the Lord brings fruit from our work.

Krista loved answering questions as kids spun the wheel. 

We are an interactive booth. Would you like a dinosaur tattoo? or a pressed penny with a butterfly on it? or would you like to look at some fossils or a replica of Noah's Ark? Take a look at a feather or butterfly wing under the microscope?  Look at the human and chimp skull; mankind was created with uniqueness and special purpose!

Dad and son look in the microscope and discover complexity in nature that can only be explained by: 'In the beginning, God..."

Isaac and Crystal talking to folks and giving out resources

Final evening of State Fair. People kept coming and coming...

Some folks just want to look from afar. It might be the first authoritative statement about Biblical Creation they have encountered.  

"My muscles are strong enough to squish a penny". Did she chose the penny with Noah's Ark that states: "Noah's Ark, salvation from the judgement of the flood; Jesus Christ, salvation from our sin."?

Yes, the Biblical Flood explains the sedimentary layers and the formation of petrified wood.

Yes, those sedimentary layers were laid down during The Flood!

Sheboygan County Fair. It's the best booth at the fair!

Pastor Richard loves to talk to kids about dinosaurs and the Bible....and Jesus!
