Title: Age of the Earth

Featuring: Dr. Andrew Snelling
Age Group: Teens; Young Adults; Adults; Senior Saints
Category: Creation
Length: 55 minutes
Media: DVD

Overview:

We must accept what God's Word and Jesus taught about the earth's age. We should not fear the radioactive methods geologists use to position rocks as millions of years old, because their methods are based on unprovable assumptions. Many examples of inherited ages, contamination, and non-constant radioactive decay rates demonstrate these assumptions are repeatedly falsified. Instead, there are many scientific evidences of a young earth, such as crumbling comets, the earth's magnetic field losing energy, and rapid salt accumulation in the oceans.

If we cannot trust the Bible about the earth's age, then we cannot trust its gospel message.

Overview:

Geologist Dr. Andrew Snelling presents several lines of evidence that both confirm the biblical account of the global Flood, and cannot be explained by evolutionary models.

What am I supposed to do for my life’s work and how does being a Christian impact my occupation?

Title:  MERE CHRISTIANITY

Author: C. S. Lewis
Age Group: Young Adults; Midlife Adults; Senior Saints
Category: Christian Life
Media: Book

Overview:

“The reader should be warned that I offer no help to anyone who is hesitating between two Christian "denominations." You will not learn from me whether you ought to become an Anglican, a Methodist, a Presbyterian, or a Roman Catholic.” 
CS Lewis is not trying to convince the reader to be a particle religion, only to point out the basics of Christianity. 
His argument can be related to racial issues of today as it was with the Nazis. 

If you were asked to describe the Christian faith in its simplest form, could you do it? Do you know what the basic elements of that faith are as shown throughout time? C.S. Lewis outlines these thoughts and others in his classic book on the defense of the Christian faith. This book will help you understand what unites Christians around the world no matter when or where they live.
