A Spiritual Battleground

Posted on May 29, 2014 in Johnsons from the Front | 0 comments

  In April, I was invited by Master Plan Ministries  to speak on the Auraria campus in downtown Denver. The Auraria campus is the home of Metro State College, University of Colorado Denver, Community College of Denver and approximately 40,000 students. Auraria is the largest campus in Colorado and has a very sizeable international student population from some of the most closed nations in the world. I was invited to speak on the “hot” topic of Creation at the weekly...

“Wet Glue”

Posted on Jan 28, 2014 in Johnsons from the Front | 0 comments

  This is not an unknown revelation … things break. Some of these broken things can be repaired if we can only stick them back together. The first item many of us turn to for repairs is duct-tape or bailing-wire; however, if you try to put a vase, or fine china, back together using duct-tape, the results are far from satisfactory – and a wire repair on such items is preposterous. So our next option for restoration is some type of glue product. Two of the most versatile...

An Engineered Marvel in a Wall

Posted on Dec 17, 2013 in Johnsons from the Front | 0 comments

  Over the past few months I have been in the process of updating the windows in our older home (built in 1950), adding insulation in the wall cavities, and upgrading the electrical system. Apparently fuel for heating was very cheap back when the house was constructed, because the carpenters did not put any insulation in the walls. As you can imagine, it has been difficult and expensive to keep the house warm during the winter and cool during the summer. To my...

Have a Laugh!

Posted on Nov 15, 2013 in Johnsons from the Front | 0 comments

  The following is an article from Creation Moments ( You Need a Healthy Laugh ): Proverbs 17:22 “A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones.” Laughing is good for you even if it does begin with the release of adrenaline and other stress hormones. Whether you are tickled or reacting to a good joke, at least seven different centers in the brain react in various ways. Your response begins with the release of stress hormones. Your...

The Comfort of the Word

Posted on Nov 7, 2013 in Johnsons from the Front | 0 comments

  My mother shared with me an experience that happened to her last week. She went to visit a dear Christian friend of hers that was at a hospice facility, something she had been doing several times a week when possible. She told the nurse that she would only stay for a few minutes, but the nurse insisted that she stay as long as she wanted, for her friend, even though near death and in a comatose state, could hear her. My mother held her friend’s hand and conversed...

On the Lighter Side

Posted on Oct 17, 2013 in Johnsons from the Front | 0 comments

  Kids have told us a lot of humorous things over the years. Two of our favorites: After a family seminar where we had talked about dinosaurs, a young girl about 7 years old came up to my wife and told her that she knew what happened to the dinosaurs (in reference to why they went extinct). “My girl horse doesn’t like our boy horse, so she can’t have a baby. So I think the girl dinosaurs just didn’t like the boy dinosaurs!”    On a recent occasion, I had just asked an...

Rapid ‘Hoodoos’

Posted on Oct 8, 2013 in Johnsons from the Front | 0 comments

    In Bryce Canyon National Park (located in the High Plateaus region of the Colorado Plateau in Utah) are some amazing rock pillars called ‘Hoodoos’. These hoodoos have wondrous, fantastic shapes that a person could spend hours viewing. How were these hoodoos formed … here is a quote from a web site on the geology of Bryce Canyon: “The chaotic destructive force of water, not wind, is responsible for the fantastic shapes in Bryce Canyon. Bryce Canyon’s...

WHAT’S THE EVIDENCE?

Posted on Sep 27, 2013 in Johnsons from the Front | 0 comments

  Dave and Mary Jo Nutting (directors of AOI) taught me early on, when we joined this ministry, to recognize the pretty pictures, or what we call ARTWORK. We find these everywhere – school textbooks, media, scientific journals, and museums – and it is being shown and used as evidence for evolution. What we always teach in our seminars is ARTWORK is just someone’s personal idea of the evidence. Once we understand that, then we should ask, “What’s the Evidence?” ...

3-D Brain

Posted on Sep 20, 2013 in Johnsons from the Front | 0 comments

  My first recollection of 3-D technology was as a kid going to the 3-D movies, where we were handed a pair of cheap, cardboard colored glasses, with one red lens made of a flimsy plastic material, and the other lens of blue plastic. It wasn’t very exciting, but with a little imagination you thought you were seeing in three-dimensions. I understand the 3-D movies today are a vast improvement over the movies of old. Today we know that brain cells communicate with each...

The Human Brain – A Problem for Chance an Accident

Posted on Aug 29, 2013 in Johnsons from the Front | 0 comments

  In my last blog (The Mind Boggling Speed of the Human Brain) I wrote about the incredible speed of the human brain  … a man-made supercomputer (consisting of 82,944 processors … only 1 per cent of the neuronal network of a human brain) completed in 40 minutes the equivalent amount of activity that is observed to take place in the living brain within one second! To put that in perspective, that supercomputer is the equivalent of 250,000 personal computers. Yet the...

The Mind Boggling Speed of the Human Brain

Posted on Aug 16, 2013 in Johnsons from the Front | 0 comments

  In 1992 Gerald D. Fischbach wrote1: ‘the most complex structure in the known universe, complex enough to coordinate the fingers of a concert pianist or to create a three-dimensional landscape from light that falls on a two directional retina’ … ‘the current version [of the brain] is the result of millions of years of evolution. It is difficult to understand the brain because, unlike a computer, it was not built with specific purposes or principles of design in mind....

Which Came First, The Chicken Or The Egg

Posted on Aug 7, 2013 in Johnsons from the Front | 0 comments

  This below question was asked of me last week at a camp. I recalled a poem I had read from A Closer Look At The Evidence1 : Which Came First, The Chicken Or The Egg   Which came first, the chicken or the egg? This question we must pose The answer rests upon God’s Word And what the evidence shows.   Evolution says it was the egg; Pure chance brought us the bird. The Bible says God made the bird In Genesis One of His Word.   These views we know can’t...
