Have you ever stopped to consider what Jesus Christ did for your soul? Has your breath ever been taken away by the beauty and simplicity of the Gospel? Has your mind been boggled by the fascinating paradoxes found in Scripture?
Other religions impose rules which subjugate mankind to worthless idols. Yet in Christianity, the commandments were given, not to appease the whims of a capricious god, but to reflect the holiness of the Almighty Creator. Since mankind was not capable of perfectly keeping His rules, the Lawgiver came to earth, fulfilled His own commands, and then died an excruciating death at the hands of those whom He had created.
The ungratefulness of humanity is staggering, isn’t it? Not only did we crucify our Messiah, but with our thoughts, words, and actions we daily reject, deny, and spit in the face of our Redeemer. Thankfully, the story doesn’t end with His crucifixion:
There in the ground, His body lay, “Light of the World” by darkness slain,
Then, bursting forth in glorious day, up from the grave He rose again!
And as He stands in victory, sin’s curse has lost its grip on me.
For I am His and He is mine; bought with the precious blood of Christ.
—Keith and Kristyn Getty, In Christ Alone
Sadly, many have never heard of this amazing grace. They have endured rules. They have experienced religion. They have embraced rituals. But how many truly understand the sheer simplicity of the Gospel — that God loved humanity so much, He was willing to send His own Son to rescue, ransom, and redeem all who call upon His name?
In an effort to reach communities with the Glorious Gospel of Jesus Christ, Creation Today has spent the past ten years engaging in worldwide evangelistic outreach, as well as creation education for the next generation. It is our desire to equip YOU to make a lasting impact in your community.
In addition to live events and conferences, Creation Today has been actively involved in educating others through various media outlets. Visualizing the need for Creation Apologetic Training, we undertook the hard labor of building our own online learning platform and launching Unshakable Faith, a two-year curriculum geared for today’s high school students. Addressing thousands at Home School Events and Conferences helps us reach the treasured home-education world. And every year at Jackson Hole Bible College, his alma mater, Eric challenges young minds and hearts to the max as he remains one of their most loved professors.

In August we asked you to guess how many churches have hosted Eric Hovind during the course of his ministry. Many of you found the hint in a recent blog post and won a free download for responding. For those still wondering, the answer is approximately 500 churches!
September Question: Which DVD was used by the Holy Spirit to bring Eric Hovind to saving faith in Jesus Christ?
PRAYER and PRAISE
Spiritual warfare surrounds any activity that threatens to interrupt Satan’s plans. With the nationwide Genesis movie release only 7 weeks away, pray for God’s divine intervention and protection for the Genesis team. We humbly praise God for the unique national spotlight afforded us to present the Gospel through the Genesis: Paradise Lost 3D and 2D theatrical release.
Eric’s course convicted me of my apathetic attitude toward the lost. I now know confidently why I believe in God and I have learned how to defend my faith in Him! I have committed that through the power of Christ in me, evangelism will be a lifestyle for me, not something to do occasionally on weekends! —Sarah, Student from Jackson Hole Bible College
