Divine Depository

I saw this interview entitled "Divine Depository" on Fox and Friends today. Ken Ham is such an articulate and well spoken defender of the clearest of all natural laws. His Creation Museum however moves far beyond the 'mere' universal knowledge of the creator, but unveils the full spectrum of Special Revelation defining this natural knowledge.

"We have the same science, we study the same evidence" as the humanistic naturalist, but, the difference is in theories of origin, which are guesses and hypothesis to explain the past by what is seen in the present. We of course do this all the time, "Hmm, how did that get there?" But of course we know that we make mistakes, all the time as well. But the key is eyewitness. If I wonder how my keys got on the table and then think I must have forgotten putting them there last night, I change my theory when my wife informs me that she borrowed my keys and left them there.

In Creation we have the testimony of an eyewitness, "Do you not know? Have you not heard? The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth." (Isaiah 40:28). Jesus said, ""Haven't you read," he replied, "that at the beginning the Creator 'made them male and female,' (Matthew 19:4). As believers, I wish we were all as confident, articulate and clear about the issue. Science is a friend, not an enemy. Secular Naturalistic Humanism, the established religion of the academic and left elite is the enemy, with their theory of origins apart from God.

The Church is this Divine Repository, "the pillar and grounds of the Truth" (I Timothy 4:19), charged to "demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ." (2 Corinthians 10:5). The science involved with putting a man on the moon is far removed, Ken Ham reminds us, from the guesses of scientists, or philosophers, or anyone else about the past. These arguments and pretensions must be contradicted by the faithful church. For more information visit
