Trust in God to do right. Trust in God and do right. - Unknown
When I try- I fail. When I trust- He succeeds! - Howard Hendricks
Prayer is the recognition of your personal bankruptcy and of God’s total adequacy. My need is not partial- it is total. - Hendricks
A bulldog can take a skunk every time, but he doesn't always know if it's worth it. - G. Beauchamp Vick
I like for people to understand- it's not "the will of God for my life,"- it's "my life for the will of God." There's a world of difference. If you will give your life for God's will God will thrust His will upon you. - Tom Sexton
It often astonishes me that I did not see the importance of meditation upon Scripture earlier in my Christian life. As the outward man is not fit for work for any length of time unless he eats, so it is with the inner man. What is the food for the inner man? Not prayer, but the Word of God- not the simple reading of the Word of God, so that it only passes through our minds, just as water runs through a pipe. No, we must consider what we read, ponder over it, and apply it to our hearts. - George Mueller
When my brother and my dear father died, I had no evidence that they were saved. But I dare not say that they are lost, for I do not know. My soul was perfectly at peace under this trial, which is one of the greatest which a believer can experience. I laid hold of that promise, "Shall not the judge of all the earth do right?" (Genesis 18:25). This word, together with the whole character of God, as He has revealed Himself in His holy Word, settled all questionings. I believed what He had said concerning Himself and have been at peace ever since concerning this matter. - Mueller

In this issue . . .
A: Science comes out of a Christian worldview. Only the God described in the Bible can account for a logical and orderly universe. God upholds the universe in a particular way, such that we can study it by observational and repeatable experimentation. Because God upholds the universe in a consistent manner, we have a valid reason to expect that we can study the world we live in and describe the laws that God uses to sustain the universe.
In the secular view, where all matter originated by chance from nothing, there is no ultimate cause or reason for anything that happens, and explanations are constantly changing, so there is no basis for science. Though many non-Christians do science, like inventing new technologies or improving medical science, they are doing it in a manner that is inconsistent with their professed worldview.

Science Confirms the Bible DVD
In this fast, illustrated presentation, Ken Ham shows again and again that real science really does confirm the Bible. Over a dozen "hot topics" are answered with the humor and intensity that has made this Australian-born educator one of the most-requested Christian speakers in America.
That's right, AiG is transitioning to a new "news feature" that we are calling News to Know. Rather than covering all the news in a very long article on Saturday (as previously done), we have opted to have headline items spread out through the week as articles on our website. This section of Answers Weekly will offer highlights each Saturday of the previous week's News to Know items, giving you a biblical perspective of the latest discoveries and happenings in the news.
Philadelphia Abortionist Gets Life in Prison for Infanticide:
Kermit Gosnell has been convicted of the murder of three babies born alive at his inner city abortion clinic. Gosnell's grisly use of scissors to sever the spinal cords of babies born alive initially escaped headline media attention until an op-ed piece in USA Today forced the national media to give Gosnell's trial the attention it merited.
This Week . . .
Please pray for wisdom as AiG selects and trains a number of seasonal employees.
