What Would Leonardo da Vinci Say to an Evolutionist?

Wednesday is for Science

“No human investigation can be called true science without passing through the mathematical tests.”

— Leonardo da Vinci —

The following is an interview with David Berlinski, a Jewish, agnostic, mathematician, who has some severe questions for Darwinists. He strikes me as an honest genius, possessed of a tremendous vocabulary and a clarity of thought that demonstrates both a huge ego and a realistic humility. The video shows that it is not only Christians who believe the Bible that have difficulty with evolution. The media, and many scientists, and nearly every atheist would love it to be so but the reality is that evolutionary theory has zillions of holes. 

It is simply the cultural myth of our age. Like slavery was once the culture myth of British and American culture, it (evolution) will eventually die under both the weight of the evidence against it and the coming of the Lord at the end of the age.

Just for fun on a Friday. Enjoy the day.

Some days are like this in the world of parenting.

But they are worth it. Bring them up in the instruction of the Lord.

“So, whether you eat or drink [or parent], or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.” (1 Corinthians 10:31, ESV)

“And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.” (Colossians 3:17, ESV)   cf. also 1 Peter 4:11.

Killing Sin for Our Joy

Wednesday is for Prayer

A perennial issue for all believers is dealing with temptation. We want our lives to reflect the holiness that Christ both purchased for us and desires in us but we all stumble in many ways. Here’s a quick three minute video that offers help and direction for how to deal with sin so that the glory of Christ is displayed in our lives so that an unbelieving world sees the glory of the gospel and our Savior.

“Oh Lord my God, when I in awed wonder consider all that You have done for me in Christ, I long for Your holiness to be reflected in my life. My trouble is that I don’t pause long enough or often enough to gaze in wonder at the beauty of the cross and the rescuing-love of Christ. Make my passion for holiness grow. Make it burn into such a flame that all my temptations to sin are consumed in the conflagration or a holy passion for You.”
