Bank Robbery

A lawyer enters a bank as a robber is making his getaway.
Noticing that the customers have their faces buried in the
floor, and the tellers have their hands in the air, the
lawyer asks what's going on. As the bank manager dials the
police department he shouts, "That man just walked out of
here with a million dollars!"

"A million dollars! Why didn't you say something?" the
lawyer says in shock. "I would have given him my card."

Whenever I feel blue, I start breathing again.

The first microscope was probably invented in 1595 by Zacharias
Janssen and his father in Middleburg, Holland. Their compound
microscope used two lenses, one convex and one concave. The Janssen
microscope marked the beginning of a period of rapid development of
microscopes throughout Europe.

In 1610, the Italian Galileo Galilei made a microscope by adapting
one of his telescopes, reversing the lenses. After that discovery,
he made more of these "occhialini," sending some of them to other

In 1660, another Dutchman named Anton van Leeuwenhoek developed a
single-lens microscope that magnified up to 270 times. He was
probably the first human to directly observe bacteria.


Are You "Anti-Science"?:
The Christian Origins of Science

Very soon, "the practice of religion must be
regarded as anti-science."

With these words, another salvo was launched in
the war between religion and science. The writer
was John Maddox, editor of "Nature", the world's
most prestigious science journal--the journal
that practically defines what counts as science today.

And now Nature has defined religion as "anti-science."

But that would be a big surprise to the people
who founded modern science. Most of the early
scientists--Copernicus, Isaac Newton, Carl
Linnaeus--were Christians. In fact, historians
tell us that Christianity actually helped inspire
the scientific revolution.

Consider a few examples. Pagan cultures saw the
world as alive with river goddesses, sun gods,
astral deities. But Genesis 1 stands in stark
contrast to all that. Nature is not divine; it is
God's handiwork. The sun and moon are not gods;
they are merely lights placed in the sky to serve
God's purposes.

This teaching provided a crucial assumption for
science, for when nature commanded religious
worship, then digging too closely into her
secrets was deemed irreverent. But in
Christianity, nature was no longer an object of
fear and worship. Then--and only then--could it
become an object of scientific study.

Another crucial assumption for science is that
nature is orderly. This, too, was provided by
Christianity. The belief that God is rational and
trustworthy implies that His creation is rational
and ordered.

The early scientists described that order as
"natural law." Today this phrase is so common, we
may not realize how unique it once was. Yet as
historian A. R. Hall points out, no other culture
has ever used the word law in relation to nature.
The idea of laws in nature came from one source:
the biblical teaching that God is both Creator
and Law-Giver.

Even the experimental method of science has roots
in Christianity. Since it is God's rationality
that orders nature, and not our own, we cannot
sit in an ivory tower and do science by sheer
rational deduction. Instead, we must do
experiments and see what happens.

For example, when Galileo wanted to find out
whether a 10-pound weight falls to the ground
more quickly than a one-pound weight, he did not
argue about the concept of weight, as was typical
among the philosophers of his day. Instead, he
dropped cannonballs off the Leaning Tower of Pisa
and watched what happened.

Some historians suggest that the story of Galileo
is apocryphal, but the point still stands: The
early scientists were acting on their conviction
that God's ways are not necessarily our ways--and
that God's ways in nature have to be discovered
by experiment and observation.

The fact is that people like John Maddox who
portray religion as "anti-science" simply don't
know their history. It's up to you and me to make
sure we do know our history. Your Bible study and
Sunday school groups can use this special
"BreakPoint" series, based on a book by Nancy
Pearcey and Charles Thaxton called "The Soul of

Christians everywhere must learn how to defend
their faith against irresponsible attacks
launched in the name of science. Chuck Colson


"I believe the Bible is the best gift God has ever given to man.
All the good from the Savior of the world is communicated to
us through this book." --Abraham Lincoln

"For we must consider that we shall be as a City upon a hill.
The eyes of all people are upon us. So that if we shall deal
falsely with our God in this work we have undertaken, and
so cause Him to withdraw his present help from us, we
shall be made a story and a byword throughout the world."
--John Winthrop, Governor of the Massachusetts Bay Colony, 1630

"America was born a Christian nation. America was born
to exemplify that devotion to the elements of righteousness,
which are derived from the revelations of Holy Scriptures.
Part of the destiny of Americans lies in their daily perusal
of this great book of revelations. That if they would see
America free and pure they will make their own spirits
free and pure by this baptism of the Holy Spirit."
--Woodrow Wilson

"It cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often that this
great nation was founded, not by religionists, but by Christians;
not on religions, but on the gospel of Jesus Christ. For this
very reason peoples of other faiths have been afforded asylum,
prosperity, and freedom of worship here."
--Patrick Henry, original member of the Continental Congress

[TBC: The "religious" nature of such beliefs as evolution and humanism have
long been pointed out. In seeking to eradicate "religion," (i.e., biblical
Christianity) from every facet of university life, so called free-thinkers
have created a religious edifice which is already turning against them. The
following excerpt from The National Association of Scholars shows the
penalty for exchanging allegiance to the Creator to the shifting sands of
science "falsely so-called.]

Outside the classroom, various innovations, including sensitivity training
and speech codes, were introduced to discourage the expression of
non-conforming views, reversing what had, only shortly before, been a
virtually iconic dedication to academic free speech. Ambitious efforts
commenced to reshape student life, through dorm-based counseling, the
regulation or suppression of fraternities and sororities, the creation of
diversity offices with extensive public affairs and advisement functions,
and the institution-wide sponsorship of events and programs "celebrating"
cultures, values, groups, and lifestyles formerly marginalized or censured.
University investment portfolios, purchasing policies, and openness to
military recruitment were also altered to reflect new creedal agendas. All
in all, the temple of science began to resemble something of a postmodern
church. . . . the increasingly creedal nature of the university poses
dangers to the natural sciences, threatening to undermine the meritocratic
protocols on which they depend, while corroding their deeper intellectual

Verse of the Day

* * * Four Important Things To KNOW: #1) For ALL (Americans, Muslims, Jews, Catholics, Hindus, Buddhist, Asians, Presbyterians, Europeans, Baptist, Brazilians, Mormons, Methodist, French, etc.) have sinned & fall short of the glory of God. #2) For the wages of above (see #1) are DEATH (Hell, eternal separation from God, & damnation) but the Gift (free & at no charge to you) of God (Creator, Jehovah, & Trinity) is Eternal Life (Heaven) through (in union with) Jesus Christ (God, Lord, 2nd Person of The Trinity, Messiah, Prince of Peace & Savior of the World). #3) For God so greatly loved & dearly prized the world (Americans, Muslims, Jews, Catholics, Hindus, Buddhist, Asians, Presbyterians, Europeans, Baptist, Brazilians, Mormons, Methodist, French, etc.) that He even gave up His only begotten (unique) Son, that whosoever (anyone, anywhere, anytime - while still living) believes (trust in, relies on, clings to, depends completely on) Him shall have eternal (everlasting) life (heaven). #4) Jesus said: "I am THE WAY, THE TRUTH, & THE LIFE. No one (male/female - American, Muslim, Jew, Catholic, Hindu, Buddhist, Asian, Presbyterian, European, Baptist, Brazilian, Mormons, Methodist, French, etc. ) comes (arrives) to the Father (with GOD in Heaven) EXCEPT BY (through) ME (no other name). *** This wonderful loving GOD gives you the choice - - - (Rev. 3:20) {Please note that church membership, baptism, doing good things, etc. are not requirements for becoming a Christian - however they are great afterwards!!!} *** Jesus said, "Wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction (Hell, damnation, eternal punishment), and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life (Heaven, eternal happiness, forever with God), and only a few find it.

But these are written so that you may
believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the
Son of God, and that by believing in
Him you will have life. Jn 20:31

Seek the Lord while He may be found;
call on Him while He is near. Let the
wicked forsake his way and the evil
man his thoughts. Let him turn to the
Lord, and He will have mercy on him,
and to our God, for He will freely
pardon. "For My thoughts are not
your thoughts, neither are your ways
My ways," declares the Lord. "As the
heavens are higher than the earth, so
are My ways higher than your ways
and My thoughts than your thoughts.
As the rain and the snow come down
from heaven, and do not return to it
without watering the earth and making
it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed
for the sower and bread for the eater,
so is My word that goes out from My
mouth: It will not return to Me empty,
but will accomplish what I desire and
achieve the purpose for which I sent it.
You will go out in joy and be led forth
in peace; the mountains and hills will
burst into song before you, and all the
trees of the field will clap their hands.
Instead of the thornbush will grow the
pine tree, and instead of briers the myrtle
will grow. This will be for the Lord's
renown, for an everlasting sign, which
will not be destroyed." Is 55

O Lord, you have searched me and you
know me. You know when I sit and when
I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar.
You discern my going out and my lying
down; you are familiar with all my ways.
Before a word is on my tongue you know
it completely, O Lord. You hem me in -
behind and before; you have laid your
hand upon me. Such knowledge is too
wonderful for me, too lofty for me to attain.

Where can I go from your Spirit? Where
can I flee from your presence? If I go up
to the heavens, you are there; if I make
my bed in the depths, you are there.

If I rise on the wings of the dawn,
if I settle on the far side of the sea,
even there your hand will guide me,
your right hand will hold me fast.

If I say, "Surely the darkness will hide
me and the light become night around
me," even the darkness will not be dark
to you; the night will shine like the day,
for darkness is as light to you. For you
created my inmost being; you knit me
together in my mother's womb. I praise
you because I am fearfully and wonderfully
made; your works are wonderful, I know
that full well. My frame was not hidden
from you when I was made in the secret
place. When I was woven together in the
depths of the earth, your eyes saw my
unformed body. All the days ordained
for me were written in your book before
one of them came to be.

How precious to me are your thoughts,
O God! How vast is the sum of them!
Were I to count them, they would
outnumber the grains of sand. When
I awake, I am still with you. Search me,
O God, and know my heart; test me
and know my anxious thoughts. See
if there is any offensive way in me,
and lead me in the way everlasting.
Ps 139

But indeed for this purpose I have raised you up,
that I may show My power in you, and that My
Name may be declared in all the earth. Ex 9:16

When I survey the wondrous cross
On which the Prince of Glory died,
My richest gain I count but loss,
And pour contempt on all my pride.

Were the whole realm of nature mine,
That were a present far too small:
Love so amazing, so divine,
Demands my soul, my life, my all.
- - Isaac Watts
