Today’s article will be short I hope. I am watching the Ken Ham of Answers in Genesis & the Bill Nye Pre-Debate show.
I watched this debate…I purchased the debate on DVD. To be honest I was a bit disappointed. I expected more out of Bill Nye The Science Guy. What did we learn from this debate? Bill Nye is NOT a Science Guy and God did it. I understand Ken’s position, I just would have hoped he would have supported his opinion with facts. There are plenty of facts that support God did it. Perhaps I missed them…I will watch the debate again.
Bill Nye has a children’s program…where he claims to be a science guy. I have watched the show and he does come off as some sort of an expert. he uses some pretty big words. “Our bodies find germs with special chemicals called anti-bodies. When the white blood cells sense the anti-bodies they attack the germ.”
His shows are relatively entertainment and there is some information. (I’ll show you a clip in a minute). I have a question? How much prep time does Bill Nye need for a 23 minute children’s science show?
A Christian Brother of mine…you may know him. His name is James L Georgeson. This is a man that I became antiquated with Mr. Georgeson in the winter of 2012 when his young sin was murdered by U.S. Marshall’s. Mr. Georgeson’s life was just ripped in a million pieces with no chance of ever recovering the pieces in order to re-assemble it. I reached out to him and he asked me to do a Bible Study in my home. It was clear after the first meeting he was not ready for this sort of gathering. I then invited him to a grief support group. This too lasted perhaps for one or two sessions.
Shortly after this, he completely pushed me away. I knew his grief was almost too much for him to bear. He pushed everyone that loved him away. I continued to pray but gave him the space he so desperately needed.
Finally, we reconnected and I could immediately see changes in him. He was quick to point out his walk with Christ was better than it has ever been and he was hungry for Biblical knowledge.
Just today he asked who John was talking about in Revelation 6:2. I quickly said, Jesus Christ and used Revelation 19 and Psalm 45 to support this. He was reading a book and the author claimed it was the antichrist.
I am aware that some Contemporary Bible Expositors agree with this teaching. I simply disagree.
I have a question?
How long did the author of the book that Mr. Georgeson was reading have to research before he wrote the booklet?
When I was in the Army I read a grand book on rock climbing. This was the ABC’s of Rock Climbing…it had everything from selecting equipment, preparing rigs to tying knots.
I had been rock climbing…but nothing serious. I certainly was not an expert. One day several of us were sitting around shooting the breeze. I started talking about the “art of rock climbing”. I spoke as if I had invented the sport. At the end of my 30 minutes of “talking” these boys were all excited and ready to go rock climbing. One young man even said, “Kevie, I would go rock climbing with you and I would not be afraid because you really know what you are doing.”
DOH! I read a book! I was not an expert….not even close and to be honest, I WOULD BE AFRAID TO ROCK CLIMB WITH ME.
I have a question.
How long did it take for me to research rock climbing before I could convince others that I was the man to go with…that I was the man to keep them safe?
You see, Bill Nye is NOT a science…he plays one on a 23 minute children’s show. Does he have some knowledge? yes, but he is an entertainer. How can we trust any man? How can we trust a man that says, “I am an expert.”
Now, please don’t mix words with me. He doesn’t actually have to SAY he is an expert. I never once told those army buddies that I was an expert rock climber. Our actions can say it. You know, ironically, that fella in the army that said he wanted to go with me, his name was Darrin O’Sheilds. Today, he lives in Washington D.C. and he works for S.W.A.T. — in fact he trains them! One of the skills he teaches is rock climbing and repelling.
I will ask again, “HOW CAN WE TRUST ANY EXPERT?”
Psalms 118:8 – It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in man.
I say unto you…TRUST NO MAN….TRUST NO EXPERT.
We can take it a step further:
Matthew 23:8-9, “But be not ye called Rabbi: for one is your Master, even Christ; and all ye are brethren. And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven.”
I think that it is safe to say that Jesus is not big on titles…and He even forbids the use of some.
Put your trust in the Life Giver.
