God's Creation Calls to You

I'm really not exactly sure why I started this blog in the first place ... you know... just kind of 'felt' like it was something maybe God was calling me to do ... My parents don't believe that God 'calls' people to do stuff ... and they are supposedly 'Christians' but who am I to judge?  My dad was trying to finish his degree and become an ordained minister in the Methodist Church .. and he never believed that God had 'called' him to do that ... he just said that it was something good to do ... and in his opinion God 'calls' everyone to think about being a minister .... I happen to totally disagree with my parents' way of thinking ... And I just think that much of the people in American churches today ... most adults even ... most 'moral 'church going Americans ... well ... I believe that yes ... they would agree with my parents ... like just go to your job ... go to church  ... blend in with the crowd ... be a 'good' person ... don't make waves in society  ... and by all means DON'T talk about having a special relationship with God ... when we all know that this doesn't happen to 'normal' people in  the twentieth century ... and if you think that God might be calling you ... just wait for it to pass ... and then go back to the same mundane boring life that you had before ... In my parents' opinion ... God helps us but He does not talk to us ... God gives us guidelines but He does not personally 'guide' us ... and God so loved the world that He gave His only Son to die for our sins .... but apparently  ... according to my parents ... that was  a one time thing ... and if we expect God to help us out with our every little tiny insignificant problem ... then we have got another thing coming ...

I can still almost hear exactly how they would say these things like it was yesterday ....

I talked a little bit about how I've gone through experiences ... experiences that I think are an allegory that help me personally to understand more about God's love and His plan for my life and for all of us ... and I really have a feeling that I also may have gleaned some understanding that could either help and/or encourage other believers ... possibly even help some atheists to relate to my thought process before I found God ... and possibly help them to see that I am a person no better or worse than them ... and a person that hopefully they can relate to and be inspired by to take a chance on God.

After a previous blog where I talked about this feeling of starting this blog and not knowing exactly why ... I came to realize where my name Creation Chick really comes from ... you see ... my life as a little girl was in turmoil right from the start ... and I used to look up at the sky and KNOW that God existed ... some how I just KNEW!  It was like when I went outside .. He was there and He surrounded me and spoke to me ... through His CREATION!  and so ... maybe I do not know everything about Creation Science ... of course I don't  ... However I plan to learn all I can because I know that God has gifted me with both a passion and a talent for doing well in science  ... and though yes ... Ken Ham could of course explain everything better and know all the answers better than me ... any day of the week ... I still want to be the Creation Chick ... because I want to show young people my age who have grown up in the kind of evolution centered environment that I have ... that there is a way to be a Creationist and still survive in this society ... so many of my friends did not agree ... and they went over to evolution's side because they did not want to be argumentative, etc .... and therefor we get all the theistic evolution that runs rampant in our American churches today .... I say ... of course I don't want to be argumentative ... but why should I say the square is blue when I can clearly see that it is red? ... you know ... it's like everything in my mind and my gut is telling me that evolution is totally messed up ... but people don't want to be argumentative we just say 'yah sure you betcha to any new idea that comes along' it's sad really ... but that's what we've come to here in America ...

So back to Creation Chick ... the name ... well .. mostly it is what defines me ... my parents tried to define God for me ... and then God came and spoke to me through His Creation ... and so the reality of the situation is that without Creation .... I WOULD NOT BE SAVED TODAY .... and I KNOW that if God did not Create the world  ... then my faith is NOTHING ... just as if Jesus did not die on the cross and rise again on the third day ... my faith is NOTHING ... Because God is perfect ... EVERYTHING He said in His WORD MUST BE TRUE ... if anyone tries to alter these truths ... they are altering their definition of God ....

I must also note that when I was a little girl my only answer to skeptics in school was that I knew that God's WORD was correct no matter WHAT it said ... and so I had no reason to even THINK about believing in evolution ... because
      THE STAGES OF EVOLUTION are INCONSISTENT WITH WITH THE STAGES OF CREATION in the BIBLE ... and so even as a girl in grade-school I knew that evolution was a lie ...

What is so weird is that have trusted God by faith  ... and somehow ... there is ALWAYS EVIDENCE THAT COMES OUT IN CREATION'S FAVOR . . .   even when it's found by the evolutionists... why?   because it's the real deal, baby  ... that's why!  because creation is the truth. ... that's why ..

People are constantly coming up with new theories about the origin of life ... but does God's Word change on the subject?   Do we revise it to suit the social climate of the times?      Of course not ... the Bible still talks about 'Adam and Eve, the Garden of Eden, the six days of Creation and the calling of Abraham just as it has done for thousands of years ... Yes ... our liberal churches change their interpretations of the text... but the text remains for those who will have the will to read what God is actually telling them no matter what the social climate may be around them ...

And so  ... I just want Creation Chick to symbolize a girl who just looked up at the sky ... at the heavens one day and just KNEW that God was there... and so ... I have so much hope for the world through God's Creation ... because no matter WHERE YOU LIVE or WHO YOU LIVE WITH or HOW YOU WERE BROUGHT UP ... ANYONE ... anyone... ANYONE AT ALL ... can look up at the sky and see God's Creation ... for me it was the beginning to my eternal salvation in Jesus Christ ...

No matter who you are ... God Loves You ... God created you ... God can speak to you wherever you are ... just like He spoke to me.  God is very real and QUITE alive and involved in the world and even in your own life ... even before you know who He is.

I didn't get to everything I was going to talk about ... but I'll end it here ... and leave the rest for another day.

God Bless You all!
May God Bless You with Abundant Life today and Always!

New Year 2010!

Many of you do not know this . . .  but I am married . . .  I was married young and I am still the age of many college students . . .  but marriage and living in the real world has taught me more than I ever learned from school.  I really believe that I have a distinct and unique perspective on life in America and the Christian culture here . . . .  because I believe I have been on both sides of the fence . . . in a way.  I have been on the skeptical side of the fence for many years . . .  I have been on the doubting side of the fence . . .  I have been on the moral and "sophisticated" side of the fence . . . or more like 'moral and successful' side . . . . I have been on the side of the street where girls and boys grow up in gangs and with the only they  . . . and even I could seem to get back at the world was to lash out with words . .  or with raw emotional physical destruction . . . . but nothing can ever really take the pain away from not only having no family  . . .  but also growing up in a violent, abusive, and many times life threatening environment . . . . .  and  . . . I have also grown up with the thought that I did not understand why it was so hard to believe in God . . . or wondering what it was even like to have a spiritual renewal experience of my very own. 

Well sometimes things happen . . .  and GOD happens  . . . when you least expect it  . . .  and just like as in the story with the footprints . . .  you suddenly look back  . .  and you are amazed at the wonders God has performed in your life when you didn't even realize it.

AT this time  . . . right after Christmas  . . . and the new year 2010 already begun . . .  I think about all my Atheistic friends . . .  I think about my emotionally torn past . . .  and I think about my parents . . . not even knowing if they are even saved . . . I worry more than anything about whether I can help the people closest to me to learn about Jesus and be saved . . .  I mean who knows? . . .  The second coming could be any day now . . . . and STILL people come to my site just to mock me . . .  Seriously I am more saddened for them than for any personal attacks they make towards me.  Nothing can be worse than Hell . . . nothing . . . .

And at this time . . .  I also have doubts . . . like what am I even doing anymore . . .  where my life is going . . .  so many times I have even asked myself if I am kidding myself about this 'God thing'  knowing that my parents told me themselves they thought I was crazy . . .

It's weird that the one thing that makes MY life complete . . . is the one thing that separates me from the majority of people on the planet . . .  the majority of whom are not Christians . . . do not take the question of the afterlife seriously, do not think about consequences or purpose to what is going on in their lives at this exact moment  . . .  All they can think about is how their life choices will effect their personal comfort . . .  and THAT is what is accepted in society right now . . . and I'm sure has been accepted for a long long time . . . .

The holidays are very rough on me . . . so I ask that anyone reading this would PLEASE keep me in prayer . . . I am not good at asking this to people face to face right now . . . So I will leave it in God's hands . . . that whoever reads this post and decides to pray for me . . . . I'm sure that is just the right person I need to pray for me . . . .

You see . . .  my marriage to a believing and professing Christian has caused a rift between me and my former friends and family . . .  and it has saved me from an abusive environment . . .  Somehow . . .I believe that whether or not I am able to help close this rift  . .  the least I can do is try to help close the rift between Christians and Atheists here in America and around the world . ..  especially those that I relate to  . . . those who still have the most hope and window of opportunity to come to understand each other . . .  the youth of our generation.

And so I can only pray that someone will reach my own family and friends . ..  but at the moment I cannot . .  and I am not emotionally able to . . .  It has been killing me inside . . . But I'm going to have to leave it in God's hands . .  and perhaps I will help reach someone reach a member of someone else's family that no one else could reach.

The reason I believe so strongly in talking about Creation Science . . .  is because . .  Science is like a god to this world to Secularists and Atheists . . .  and science is something people know to be good and helpful . . .  science is something people can relate to . . .  If we can take this jumping off point and run with it . . .  just like Paul did with the 'unknown god' with the Greeks . ..  perhaps we can reach some people with the truth that has saved us . . . the Saving faith in Jesus Christ our Lord.

Thoughts on Christmas

I've been thinking about Christmas . . .  Thinking about God, Thinking about the too-good-to-be-true  miracle of Jesus Christ, God's only son becoming flesh and walking among us . .  to show us how to live, to relate to our struggles, to show us how to love, and to inevitably die for our sins hung tortured on a cross . .  with nails through His wrists and feet, and pieces of His flesh on His back ripped apart by flogging . . .  pieces of His soul and His dignity,  any His psychological strength and will being ripped away from Him as He was mocked, insulted, lied about, misunderstood, not accepted . . .  and He was PERFECT.  Jesus lived the perfect life.  How horrible and sad He must have felt to know that no matter what He did . .  . people rejected Him . .  how horrible for the world . . that even when someone who was completely good . . . even then a person not go through this life without pain because the world really doesn't like good, kindness, or love, but the world is influenced with deception and evil . . .  the world rejects truth, the world rejects light, and the world rejects the salvation that was given through the blood of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior! Praise Be His Name!

I say "Merry Christmas" to people when I am working (retail) because I believe it is a friendly greeting . .  and in some way . .  I am wishing that even if they do not celebrate Christmas I wish them a good life . .  and a good day on Christmas.  My secret best wish for them at Christmas, however, is that they find real true happiness for this life and in the next . . . and of course the only way this is possible is if they find Jesus  :  )  So I feel I must say Merry Christmas . . it is the least I can do on Christmas.  So many people say "Happy Holidays" but I much prefer to say Merry Christmas . . . If my job had a problem with it then I would have to decide whether to keep saying it or not . .  or else perhaps worst case scenario- lose my job . ..  but as things stand I am not in that predicament . . .  I have been before but am not at this moment . .  and so I choose to say "Merry Christmas" . . .  because every time I say "Merry Christmas" I feel free . .  and every time I have tried to bring myself to say the politically correct "Happy Holidays" I feel like a piece of my soul has died and I feel defeated.  But when I say "Merry Christmas", I feel like I am free to express myself as part of God's Creation!  I know that I am created by God, and so my purpose in life is to give Him glory.

Some may feel that the 'Happy Holidays/Merry Christmas' controversy should not be a controversy at all . .  but I do not mean to make it a controversy . . . I just mean to express my true nature as a creation of God . . .  just as with being a Creationist, I do not mean to cause controversy  . . .  but I am more afraid of creating controversy between myself and my God . . than "creating controversy" between myself and just people.  God is God and people are just people . . just part of His Creation . .  and so I will say "Merry Christmas" because I can . .  and because it makes me happy to . .  just like it makes me happy to talk about Creation Science . .

I love God and it is in my created nature to say "Merry Christmas" and in some way when I say it . . .  it is like an invite and a blessing to all those who hear it . . so that maybe . . just maybe . .  when they do hear it . . . they will think . .  hmm . . . I wonder what this thing called "Christmas" is all about? . . . and if they would find out the meaning . . . they will find life . . .  eternal life in Jesus Christ . . .  - and THAT is the meaning of Christmas.

And so  . . . though it may even feel like Spiritual Warfare just to get the words out our mouths, "Merry Christmas" I would risk anything to say it . . .  because no matter what job or status I have in this world . . . it is all NOTHING if I cannot acknowledge my Creator especially on the day He gave Himself to us to save my soul and the souls of the whole world.  And so, whatever job or organizations or status or responsibilities I have in the rest of my life . . . I hope to NEVER stop saying "MERRY CHRISTMAS!"

Merry Christmas to you all!  May God Bless You Abundantly!

Conservatives Fight Back?

Hi There! This is Creation Chick! I just wanted to comment on something I heard on the conservative talk radio, recently. Umm . . I actually don't remember who it was . . but it was someone filling in for Rush on Tuesday, I think it was . . and he was talking about the need for the silent majority to fight back. . . . the way the liberals do that is . . no mercy . . no topic of discussion too low . . . no personal attack too sacred . . . nothing sacred AT ALL! Of course . . we won't lie and then cover up the fact that our lies were found out later like the liberals (and evolutionists) do, but we will not refrain from telling the world about the things that the liberals actually have done . . . after all they do not refrain from telling us what to do, right?

Well, someone actually did call into the station and tell him that we conservatives with moral values should not stoop to their level . . . and the radio guy and the guest chatted for some time about how really, the people of this country are never going to know how bad the liberals actually are . . unless somebody tells them, you know? Pretty much the radio show host said that we conservatives are just too afraid to fight back.

I have to say . . that I do agree with the talk show host. There are people constantly harassing me on my Youtube page . . and if I would say the same kind of argumentative and derogatory remarks back at them, it would be like I am becoming what I am fighting against. However, it is true that perhaps . . we need to fight back . . or they will continue to walk all over us. People in this country apparently can't see through the fact that a person uses manipulative and harassing tactics to get ahead anymore. We, as a nation and as people of this world . . no longer look at political debates in the way we once did. We no longer look at personal character traits in the way we once did either. Before, when this country and much of the western world held to Judeo-Christian beliefs, we as a people of earth had a way of dignity and respect of others that translated even to the way that we viewed other non-Christians. Yes, of course there are religious groups that had pronounced themselves to be Christian such as in the Crusades . . that people misunderstand as being actual Christian ideas . . as if Christianity is some sort of conspiracy made by people rather than a personal individual connection that each Christian has with Jesus Christ. I mean, seriously . . what do people think . . that we have some underground connection that we all discuss how we are going to elaborately make this crazy scheme to make it seem as there is a God . . when there really isn't? This doesn't even make sense to me . . I mean . . what better reason would there be to be a Christian than . . Christianity actually being true?! So Liberals actually believe that Christianity, God, Salvation through Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit entering the heart of every Christian and the Spiritual Gifts, as well as angels and all that . . IT'S ALL JUST ELABORATE SCAM? Wow! That's got to be some determination that we have . . especially since many Christians are martyred physically or sometimes politically or socially because they are Christians. Anyway . . I don't know if that made sense . . but I just had to get that out . . . Anyway . . what I'm saying is that it's just crazy in my opinion to think that God doesn't exist and that we made it up. But, I guess that's why atheist believe that all religious people are psychologically messed up and that Christianity is just one more mental disease that people have. In some ways . . they may be right .. Perhaps being religious is some kind of disease in some cases . . but not having true faith . . no faith is different than religion . . and faith is not a disease . . . Faith is taking a chance to believe in something greater than yourself . . Faith is a something that takes bravery, courageousness, humility . . and being able to face the possibility that something you do not understand could be true.

I remember that when my grandfather was a missionary in China . . it was very important for him not to do anything offensive inside a Buddhist temple . . short of actually bowing or before Buddha that is because that would go against his Christian faith . . but there were certain things that were not supposed to be done in a Buddhist temple and my grampa could have been like "oh Buddha doesn't exist so it's okay if I treat these people anyway I want" . . but he didn't because he respected their beliefs. I really think that is something maybe some Christians growing up in America have been missing, but I think that it is something that we have had to learn is important after we have seen ourselves how difficult it is to be dismissed just because of others' prejudices against our Christian beliefs. I believe that maybe there is a reason that American Christians have gone through a surge of anti-Christianity . . Heaven help us . . if we do not swing back to the right soon, but . . seriously . . we need to start looking for the good in everything. The Bible says that all things work for good to those who love Him and follow His commands. So . . even though there may be a reason that God is trying to teach a lesson to those who do not know Him here in America, I also believe that we must look for a reason that we Christians are going through this as well. After all . . a majority of people in the United States call themselves Christians . . and even if the faith might not be totally genuine in everyone, the fact that the majority believes themselves to be Christian . . demonstrates the fact that the majority of people here . . really believe that it is important to have Christian morals in this country.

Personally I believe that the problem is that 1. Christians in America have really no depth to their faith, and 2. We are too afraid to stand up for our faith. I believe that these two aspects of Christian faith combines . . make what we call . . the "silent majority" here in America . . which is a very strange situation. The majority of people in America are too afraid to stand up for what they believe . . so the main holding of power bounces from one zealous group to the next. And then we sit around and complain about how unfair the whole thing is . . of course in secret . . not out loud . . because if we did then the problem . . in my opinion would disappear . . which is of course why I've decided to blog out loud my ideas on the internet . . . . the only downside I can foresee . . could be that I get either get harassed off the internet . . by people who don't even care about getting to the truth . . but do care about suppressing other's viewpoints.

So . . what I'm saying is . . we Christians should realize that it hurts really bad to be wrongfully suppressed, to be made fun of for no fault of our own, to be treated shamefully in society, to be fired just for being a Christian, to have our religion actually laughed at on talk shows and national TVs, do have the name of Jesus rejected by people and laughed at an made fun of . . It's horrible . . I know that people say that we Christians in America are not going through as much as in other countries, but still . . you have to admit . . that how things are in America is very bad right now . . is horrible for Christians and . . for non-Christians as well . . because without the truth to guide us . . our whole country is becoming warped.

It's true . . we may be heading for socialism soon with the Obama Administration and everything that is going on with the direction this country is headed it . . However . . if we do make it out of this . . I believe that we as Americans need to stand up for our beliefs . .be firm . . but never again should we take our influence on this nation's valued for granted again . . we should never again force Christian ideals on people without actually working on saving their actual souls and caring about respecting them as people . . . but NEVER should we disrespect Jesus Christ again . . by being too cowardice to stand up for our Lord, our God, and our Savior, Jesus Christ!

So . . all in all . . whether we inadvertently hurt people by speaking the truth . . the important lesson is that we should never deviate from the scriptures again . . the foundation of our faith . . We need to come TOGETHER . . no matter what out specific differences of opinion within Judeo-Christian believers in America . . and within Christianity itself in America . . and within conservatives in America . . and within the difference of opinions on HOW we get that message through to liberals . . whether it is head to head no mercy debating tactics . . or whether it is leading by example by NOT stooping to their level.

I'm not sure where America is headed . . but one thing is true . . we have never needed to count on our Heavenly Father any more than this hour.

I say . . give me that old time religion . . if it was good enough for our forefathers, then it's good enough for me!

God Bless You All,

First Post - This Christian Nation

Hi there . . . Creation Chick, here! : D How is everyone? This is my blog for all my political viewpoints . .. pretty much for me . . this is so that I don't start getting political when talking about religion, science, faith, or any other topic . . . where politics does not belong. HOWEVER, politics is an important part of being a Christian . . and it is an important part of being a citizen of the united states, so I believe it is very important to at least have some sort of viewpoint on every issue. Once we all can express our viewpoints, then we at least have a jumping off point to discuss things with other people who agree or disagree with us. Anyway . . I think that a big part of what's going on in America today is that a majority of the population disagrees with how our values are being warped, but no one is big or brave enough to stand up for real morals. It is the well known term, the silent majority, in America that needs to speak out. But no one can speak out unless they feel safe . . and when we are constantly being called haters of bigots or close-minded. Yes, we have an opinion . . . . . is that a crime?
