Over the past few months, we have released a series of blog posts in celebration of Creation Today’s 10th anniversary! While covering topics like Impacting Christianity, Impacting Children, and Impacting Continents, we have given you a glimpse into the past decade of our ministry to thank you for the part YOU play in everything we do. Through your prayers, encouragement, financial support, and scheduled events we have also been able to impact many churches with Creation Apologetics. And when churches have a firm foundation for their faith, the entire world will be impacted as a result.
Recounting the details of the ascension in the book of Acts, Luke repeats the charge Jesus Christ gave His disciples before going back to Heaven. Notice how their witness was to start in Jerusalem and expand from there to the rest of the world.
You shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth. —Acts 1:8
Just like the disciples, we have all been tasked with living and sharing the Gospel. It doesn’t start on the other side of the world. It begins in our families and churches. It impacts our communities. It spreads across the country. And from there it extends to the uttermost parts of the world.
That is why it is imperative that our families and our churches are established in the truth. The potential impact of one church is astronomical, if that church is filled with spirit and truth.
But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him. —John 4:23
Lately it seems like the whole world has lost its mind! Common sense has gone A.W.O.L. and we’re continually fighting over things that are less than irrelevant. Meanwhile, life just gets crazier and crazier and we wonder if there is an end to the rabbit-hole. Of course, everyone has their own theory for what is wrong with our culture but, here at Creation Today, we believe most of the insanity can be traced back to a departure from the Book of Genesis.
When Darwin published, “The Origin of the Species” in 1859, most churches did not know how to respond. Like the frustrated Rev. Brown portrayed in the film, “Inherit the Wind,” many churches rejected evolution simply because it conflicted with their own traditions and preconceptions. Sadly, they had little truth upon which to base their rejection, because the church had already begun to question the veracity of the Scriptures. Then, as fossils began to pop up to seemingly discredit the Creation Story, our predecessors either relegated them to the hoax column or conceded that Genesis could not be trusted in matters of science and history. Very few retained a faith that the Scriptures are not only infallible, but also relevant for us today.
Because of this, our churches have seen some drastic pendulum swings over the past 150 years. While some have maintained a firm stand on the Inerrancy of Scripture, there are many who have completely rejected Genesis and other “questionable” passages. More still are confused by the issue or unwilling to choose sides. Consequently, truth has become ambiguous and is frequently sacrificed on the altar of “love,” for fear of causing offense.
Yet, as Warren Wiersbe so eloquently put it, “Truth without love is brutality, and love without truth is hypocrisy.” If we love others, we will tell them the truth—in love. We will take a stand for truth—in love. We will promote truth throughout our churches, communities, and country. But we will do it in love. That is our goal at Creation Today.
Over the past ten years we have been blessed to reach hundreds of churches and thousands of individuals with Creation Truth. From Bible Studies to Creation Seminars, Worldview Weekends, and Truth Conferences, our ministry has endeavored to build up and encourage churches to take a stand on the Infallible, Inerrant Word of God. When churches have a firm foundation for their faith, they can impact the entire world.
Are you looking for ways to reach your congregation with the Creation message? Please consider inviting Eric Hovind to your church for a Worldview Weekend or Creation Conference. It’s never too early to impact our children, churches, communities, and country with Truth!

August Question: During the course of his ministry, Eric Hovind has spoken in how many churches? (Answer is approximate and can be found in a recent blog post.)
After many years of hard work, “Genesis: Paradise Lost” is finished and ready for distribution! This full-length movie depicts the first chapter of Genesis in full stereoscopic 3D animation, intertwining interviews with leading scientists and theologians. Rivaling anything on Discovery or History Channel, the theatrical release of Chapter One is November 13, 2017. Tickets go on sale to the public on September 1st!
Please pray for churches to partner with us in the distribution of “Genesis: Paradise Lost.” This foundation is missing from the heart and intellect of so many church members, yet it is so crucial to our understanding of truth!
EXCITED ABOUT GENESIS 3D
Thanks so much for your ministry. I am very excited for the impact that a high-quality and truthful portrayal of Genesis can have in this culture! Let me give you just one example.
I recently sent a video about dinosaurs and the Bible to a college fraternity brother, but he was disappointed and thought it was silly. I realized that he had closed his mind to simple Biblical truths and the consistency of God’s Word because he thought he was getting a CGI (Computer Generated Imagery) type of video that would be entertaining and graphically stimulating like he was used to seeing from Discovery Channel and Hollywood. Instead, he just got a talking-head lecture. He didn’t even listen.
Hello Genesis in 3D! I’m praying that this movie will entertain him, but more importantly sober him to God’s truth and how Genesis lays the foundation for the how, why, what, when, and where of the rest of the Bible, our fallen state, and the reality of our opportunity for salvation thru Jesus Christ.
Praying for the tremendous potential outreach for eternity through this film! —Christian, North Carolina, USA
Thanks for praying and for partnering with us!
