Paul sent this note to Samantha:
I saw Josiah’s site, and could not find his email address. I sent him a posting, which I hope he will receive. I also went to your blog, and saw that you are searching.
In 1977 I was finishing my college career, which no longer seemed relevant in my search for Truth. In 1978, God answered my question, and showed me His Messiah, Jesus Christ. As a Jew (nominally religious, proclaimed agnostic – which to me meant withholding judgment because not knowing), this was not something I had anticipated or previously contemplated, but the sun had risen and there was no going back. On the contrary, I had immense joy in the Light of Day, knowing the Truth and beginning a journey that has been much more than I could have ever imagined. How can mortal man know the things of Heaven? But God has revealed them to us (1 Corinthians 2:10).
We have found the Scriptures to be true, not as dead doctrine, but as living Truth. Jesus Christ is alive; He reigns! Believe it. Go to our site. Share with Josiah.
Josiah did receive the comment, I can see it on his page, and I forwarded him your email. =) Thank you for your concern; we are both committed Biblical Christ-followers.
Sam, off to watch fireworks =)
I ran across Josiah’s blog while looking up something about evolution. I am in the process of writing a letter that I could perhaps share with the two of you. You might find it worthwhile.
I notice on your site you say:
“On the other hand, a great many Creationist organization list in their
mission statements that part of their goal is to deconstruct Evolution (with the goal, one would imagine, of leaving Creationism the only viable alternative). This is not Biblical.”
I am not sure you realize what the word “deconstruct” means. I quote from an online dictionary:
“1. To break down into components; dismantle.2. To write about or analyze.”
Perhaps you think the people that used the word meant something different by it. Whatever the case, there is nothing unBiblical about analyzing something if that entails refuting what is not true. In fact, the Bible itself stands as a Refutation of all things not true.
There is nothing in our physical world that is more untrue than the teaching of evolution as the explanation for God’s creation. And the source of this lie is found in the spiritual realm, where man, the rebel, says, “Who are You to tell me what to do?!”
Peace in Christ, Lord and Creator, and Savior of those that believe on Him,

The greatest "secular" lie of our times, imposed upon the world at large, is that of evolution. While the entire world indulges in this deception, it is more than secular; it is spiritual as well, because in its essence, it denies the existence of God as He is. I say, "as He is," because there are those who think they can reconcile evolution with God the Creator. To do so is to deny the Scriptural testimony He has bestowed on mankind concerning His Nature, Character and mode of conduct. Denying the Book of His Authorship is to deny Him, for the theories of evolution are not compatible with the God of the Bible. Any reasonable person can know that. Either we believe the Bible and therefore God, or we do not.
Can intelligence and organization come from chaos? This brief correspondence demonstrates that like comes from like. The one espousing chaos as his origin exhibits disorganized thinking, though concealed behind educated and intellectual sounding propositions that might even sound logical. To those whose minds are in a muddle, it all sounds very impressive, but with critical examination we find a dog's breakfast of notions incoherently assembled into an inedible mass. The antidote is sound thinking from the source of our existence, the One Who organized and created us.
How the words of the inspired writer come alive when applied at the proper time and place. And here evolutionists meet God: "Seeming to be wise, they were in fact foolish, and by them the glory of the eternal God was changed and made into the image of man who is not eternal, and of birds and beasts and things which go on the earth" (Romans 1:22-23 BBE). In this section you will find some very simple, yet logical and conclusive, arguments against the mad theories of evolution, guided above all by godly wisdom and reason. This is not blind faith, but knowing and understanding faith made available to all in the Creator.
