Wonderful, but flops very badly at the end.
on 11 January 2014
A lovely presentation containing 19 chapters showing how God's four cardinal qualities are manifest in His Creation, as says Romans 1:20. But flops very badly at the end!! This presentation is scientifically sound, but spiritually is misleading.
God's POWER is manifest in thunderstorms, the atom, the sun and stars, and the universe.
God's WISDOM is seen in the beautiful "faces" of snow, the pre-programmed formation of a baby in the womb, water, the design of bird's bones and feathers, the oxygen filter (laminae) of fish gills, the DNA structure, trees as solar-powered aerators, plants and their seeds----wonderful testimony to a Creator. Chapters 17 and 18 cover God's JUSTICE and God's LOVE; chapter 19 ends with a song of Jesus worship.
The first 16 chapters beautifully show God's Creation with sound science----fine; no problem, except its Bible references replacing the Divine Name Jehovah with "the Lord" (if you look at the Hebrew Text of these scriptures, it clearly shows the Tetragrammaton YHWH and its vowelized form YeHoWaH in the Masoretic Text; the Hebrew word for "the Lord" is ha-'Adhonai, not YHWH). Its last 3 chapters betray the authors' obvious ignorance and very shallow Bible knowledge (and those of the Bible-blind reviewers who wrongly worship Jesus and ignorantly give this 5 stars; I am on my 18th time of reading God's Word from cover to cover!).
For example, Chapter 17 at 01:14: a man is asked: "So if you are guilty as a blaspheming, lying, thief [sic], on the day of judgment, would God send you to heaven or hell, based on the Ten Commandments?". The man replies: "Uh, I would definitely go to hell." Hell is a false non-Bible teaching of God tormenting people in a fiery hell; the word hell comes from an old Italian form of "inferno" the Latin word for Greek Hades and the Hebrew Sheol--the common grave of dead souls. The Bible teaches that the soul dies (Ezekiel 18:4); even Jesus was in "hell" (Greek Hades--Acts 2:27, 31-32); everyone goes to the Bible "hell"--the common grave of dead souls, with the hope of a resurrection except the deliberate wicked. Even Romans 6:7 says "For he who has died has been acquitted from his sin". Besides, these false 'Christians' are also breaking the First Commandment in having other gods against Jehovah's face, that is, in worshipping Jesus, God's Son, and not worshipping Jesus' Father; and breaking the Second Commandment in using the cross as a carved image in worshipping Jesus. Those who worship Jesus are not true Christians.
Even worse is Chapter 18!: at 01:16 Dr. John Whitcomb says "Because the penalty for sin is death, THE CREATOR CAME TO EARTH AS A MAN, lived a sinless life, and died to pay the penalty for our sins. He then rose from the dead and offers forgiveness and eternal life to all who will trust Him." How can Jesus resurrect himself from the dead unless God resurrected him from the dead? Jesus would then be deceiving us as not genuinely dying for mankind, but pretending to die. As Peter says in Acts 2:32 "This Jesus God resurrected"--two people. Who spoke from heaven at Jesus' baptism on earth? Only a fool believes that Jesus is God.
At 01:21 Dr. John Whitcomb says that "Jesus is the Creator", contradicting Jesus' own words that he is God's Son (John 10:36). Gabriel to Mary, Peter, Paul, and John, even Jehovah God himself twice confirms Jesus is God's Son. So God is the Father, not Jesus; thus God is the Creator, not Jesus. Therefore, Jesus is the Son of the Creator Jehovah God, whom Jesus refers to as "my Father" 30 times in the Gospels. John 1:1 describes the Word as A god; the absence of the Greek definite article before the Greek noun for god implies the indefinite article before this noun theos: A god.
It is such a shame that a mostly fine video proving a Creator is ruined by an ignorant liar at the end saying that Jesus is the Creator, promoting Jesus worship. At Matthew 4:10; Jesus recites Deuteronomy 5:9 "It is Jehovah your God you must worship...". Worshipping Jesus via the cross is false worship. Therefore, the whole DVD is misleading and misguided, deceiving people into Jesus-worship. In effect, the whole DVD is aimed at proving that Jesus is the Creator. Not good!
