Dinosaurs and the Bible! Most folk, particularly children (yes, Christian kids) believe that dinosaurs lived millions of years ago. This often leads them to refuting the Bible’s account of the history of the Earth and the book of Genesis. But, did you know that dinosaurs are mentioned in the Bible? Dr. Jonathan Sarfati will be ministering at 8:30 am, 10:00 am & 11:00 am on Sunday June 2, 2013, here at Atonement. There is no doubt that Jonathan is regarded as one of the world’s leading Christian apologists when it comes to Bible/science related issues and the book of Genesis. His esteemed body of work includes his Refuting series of books, which are not only some of the biggest-selling creationist books ever, but are regarded as keystone books in the defense of a six-day, straightforward understanding of Genesis—both scientifically and theologically. Jonathan is also a co-editor of the internationally renowned Creation magazine and Journal of Creation (formerly TJ), and much in demand as an international speaker. Here’s your chance to hear a clear, logical defense of the faith, starting in Genesis, and why this issue is vitally important if we are to make a difference in our families and communities.
Jonathan studied science at Victoria University of Wellington. He obtained a B.Sc. (Hons.) in Chemistry. His Ph.D.was in Chemistry. In 2004, he wrote Refuting Compromise, defending a straightforward biblical creation timeline and a global flood, and answering biblical and scientific objections. Dr. Sarfati is also a former New Zealand Chess Champion. He is said to be be able to play 12 games of chess simultaneously while blindfolded.

"Genius" is an amazing new short film based on the life and tragic murder of John Lennon. The Producer of the Los Angeles-based film company, Ray Comfort, said, "It's chilling because it reveals what people will do for money. There are ordinary people out there who would kill you. All they need is the right amount of money and the belief that they won't get caught."
Ken Mansfield, the former U.S. Manager for Apple Records said, "Genius will open your eyes." Other reviewers have called it "fast-paced, thought-provoking and compelling." It is being promoted as "33 minutes that will rock your soul." Comfort's last movie "180" received more than 3.7 million views on YouTube and aired on television around the world. "Genius" has been released for free viewing on www.GeniusTheMovie.com to coincide with the December 8th anniversary of the death of John Lennon.

It is time for students to encourage others to question Darwinism in their schools—after all, don’t teachers urge students to “question everything”? Students have a right to question the evolutionarypseudoscience peddled to them.
What good questions can you ask? There is an exciting ‘Question evolution’ tract with 15 Questions for Evolutionists that provides critically important questions that evolution cannot adequately answer.
Share these with your friends, family and fellow students. These attractive tracts [view / order] are very affordable, or print your own from a downloadable PDF document [plain A4-size, plain letter-size]
You can also get shirts, hats and caps, bags, mugs, stickers or badges printed with “Question evolution! / Creation.com” or “Evolution—The greatest hoax on Earth? / Get the facts at Creation.com”.
By simply sharing a tract or wearing a shirt, cap or badge, others will visit creation.com and find out the truth, empowering them to reject the lie that “everything made itself without God”. Christ as our Creator and Redeemer sets people free!
