Question of the Week: Is Science Secular?

From the highly recommended website: www.answersingenesis.org

Is Science Secular??
Is Science Secular?
Is Science Secular?
Many people today insist that science can only be done by people who have a secular worldview—or at least by those who are willing to leave their religious views at the door as they enter the science lab. But is this really the case, or are these opponents of a biblical worldview simply making assertions that cannot be supported with facts and substantial arguments, having an incorrect understanding of true science?

John R. Rice Quotes of the Week

A mother said to me, "Brother Rice, will you talk to my boy? You know how boys are, they will not listen to their own mothers." And I answered, "I listened to my mother." I know many boys who listen to their mothers. That depends on what kind of mother you are. The mother who is the right kind of mother, out-and-out for God, against sin, filled with the Spirit, loving, prayerful, waiting on God, filled with the love and kindness and patience and gentleness of Christ -such a mother boys will listen to. I know that fathers and mothers can have influence over their children if they begin early. And I believe that wives can always win their husbands, if they really mean business and do not wait too long. But Lot lost his wife and, as far as we know, she went to Hell. - John R. Rice

But the most real sin of Lot in this case was not in his wine-drinking. It was not in the adultery he committed. That was horrible, but he knew nothing of it. Back of all that was the greater sin; he had lost his touch with God, he had lost his influence with his daughters. Lot was a Christian. He did not have the joy of a Christian. He did not have the fruit of a Christian. - John R. Rice


Now the Spirit of God lives in the body of every Christian. No one need pray, "Holy Spirit, come and make Your home in my body." He does already. That is a part of salvation. - John R. Rice

Romans, chapter 8, verse 9, says, "But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his." After Christ has risen from the dead, anyone who does not have the Holy Spirit living within him is not saved. I am not talking about having a certain attitude, some indefinite attitude of mind or quality of your own heart. I mean the Holy Spirit - a Person - lives in the body of every Christian. - John R. Rice

Somebody said, "If I do so-and-so, the Holy Spirit won't be with me." Oh, yes He will. He is with you, going where you go. He may shut Himself into some secret shelf of your heart so that He doesn't talk to you, doesn't smile upon you when you sin and grieve Him. You read the Bible and it isn't sweet to your heart. But He is there. Always the Spirit of God is with you, if you have been converted. "Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his." Every Christian has Christ in him through the Holy Spirit and that is his hope of glory. - John R. Rice


The scientists and the educators, the self-styled wise men of this world, teach that man began at nothing, and from an amoeba in a swamp is climbing upward toward God: yea, that man is making himself a god. This Bible teaches that man was made by the hand of God and in the image of God and is going downward toward Hell! - John R. Rice

The government in every nation of the world is unsteady today. Kings fall, dictators rise to take over democracies which have rotted with the leprosy of sin. Not a government on the face of the earth today is steady and secure and untroubled. Human governments have always failed and are destined always to fall. - John R. Rice

CONFESSION AND FORGIVENESS


                                             PSALM 51                                           
Pastor Rick Jackson



Everyone needs forgiveness. How do I know that? I know because all have sinned. Since all have sinned all need forgiveness. Forgiveness is not a given. It must be obtained. The alternative to forgiveness is condemnation. Condemnation is a given (Jn. 3:16-19).



I. THE BASICS OF FORGIVENESS



1. Mercy (not being condemned like we deserve) based on love (v. 1)

2. Removal of sin based on the blood (v. 2, Rev. 1:5)

3. Confession precedes forgiveness (to confess means to agree) (v. 3)



(1) The lost must confess Christ as Saviour (Rm. 10:9-13)

(2) The saved confess their sin to God (1 Jn. 1:9)

---The saved already have a relationship with God hence the difference.



II. THE BASICS OF CONFESSION



1. All sin is against a thrice Holy God (v. 4, Is. 6:3, Rev. 4:9)

2. All humans are born sinners (v. 5) ---We aren’t sinners because we sin; we sin because we are sinners. A Cat is not a cat because it meows, it meows because it is a cat; it is the cat’s nature to meow

3. Confession allows God’s desire of fellowship with man (v. 6, Ps. 8:4, Is. 59:2)



III. THE BASICS OF WHAT CONFESSION DOES FOR CHRISTIANS



1. Allows the blood to be applied to the specific area (v. 7, Is. 1:18, passover)

2. Allows joy to return (v. 8)

3. Allows communication to resume (v. 9, Ps. 66:18)

4. Allows God to renew us (not resave us) (v. 10-11)

5. Allows God to restore the joy of salvation to our lives (v. 12)

6. Allows God to use us again (v. 13, I Co. 9:27)

7. Allows us to worship in work and words alike (v. 14-19, Jn. 4:24)

Vance Havner Quotes of the Week

One may think of a minister as a householder standing before the people with all the treasure of God behind him, giving out of the wealth with never a fear of a Mother Hubbard experience, for that cupboard will never be bare! - Vance Havner

What a terrible time we have in our churches to keep people faithful in attendance and loyalty! How we reward and picnic and coax and tantalize church members into doing things they don't want to do but which they would do if they loved God! The only service that counts is faithful service that issues from love of Christ. - Vance Havner

Christian living calls for faithfulness. Not everyone can sing or preach, but all can be faithful. Maybe that is what takes the glamour out of it - anybody can do it! Anyway, there isn't much of it. - Vance Havner

Too many saints go up like rockets and come down like rocks. - Vance Havner

Of course, some saints are permanent fixtures; but our permanence should be the living permanence of a tree, not the dead stability of a tombstone. - Vance Havner
