God is the Creator of all things and we have been made in his image!

    God's people from every tribe and nation, who have the truth through the Word and the Spirit, have been given the power through that Word and the Spirit for "casting down imaginations and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God" (10:5, 2 Corinthians). Christians need to first understand who we are fighting in the battle against evolution theory "for our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms" (6:12, Ephesians). Understanding the spiritual nature of the battle, Christians can "put on the full armor of God" (6:13, Ephesians), including the belt of truth (6:14), the shield of faith (6:16), and the "sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God" (6:17), and "pray in the Spirit" (6:18). United we stand and boldly declare the everlasting truth that the living God is the Creator of the universe!

    Every day we fight this spiritual battle, but October 18 has specifically been designated as Creation Day, a day for honoring and celebrating our Creator, a day for enjoying God's beautiful creation all around us, and a day for casting down evolution theory by declaring and sharing the truth that God is our Creator. Suggested activities for Creation Day include watching a sunrise or sunset; taking a nature walk; visiting the mountains; hiking with a youth group or other Christian group; visiting a garden; taking a trip to a pumpkin patch; visiting a lake or beach; having a bonfire and singing praises to our Creator; stargazing; distributing creation literature; having a feast of natural foods; having a party in which celebrators dress up as a lion, a ladybug, a planet or any favorite thing out of creation; having a church festival or a creation day parade of floats with land animals, sea creatures, natural foods, flowers, the galaxy and so on; having a Creation Day march to demonstrate to the world our belief in our Creator and our stand against the false teachings of evolution theory in our schools and universities and mainstream media. October 18, 2013 marked the first celebration of Creation Day to honor our loving and awesome Creator, and God in return honored our celebration with a full moon, rings around the moon, and an unexpected eclipse! Compelled by love for the truth, for our young people, for the lost and for all those being misled, every Christian individual, family, group and church is encouraged to join us in this pressing spiritual battle of our day, casting down the imaginations within evolution theory and proclaiming the eternal truth that God is the Creator of all things and we have been created in his very image!

    "We are bringing you good news, telling you to turn from these worthless things to the living God, who made heaven and earth and sea and everything in them." (14:15, Acts)

            And every one was an 'enry...*

            *because I've never heard any British person ever pronounce the beginning "H" sound.

              'Tis only the British people with a BBC accent who seem to pronounce their H's. Them and really posh people. Seriously.

                I have a friend with the heaviest cockney accent you'd ever hear. To date, I've understood four words he's said.  In six years, four words. We end up using charades and/or pointing most of the time

                  The Mancunian accent is even worse, other Brits struggle to understand what we are saying. smile

              Ah, good times, good times....you have a lovely singing voice, I must say smile

              True that. Aren't they cool? Love those British accents. They make me ooo and ahh. Where I'm from, most (yes, myself included 'cause I'm lazy like that) do that with the ending of words instead...goin', stayin', listenin', etc. Somehow, it doesn't quite seem as charming as those dashing Brits! Yes, yes I am jealous! Blasted dashing Brits with their cool accents! *Sigh*

                I spent some time in Europe when I was growing up. Dad was stationed in Germany for the most part, but we kids, for some reason, only had British teachers. I fell in love with the accent (although I admit I like the Scottish accent a bit more.) When we were in London/Edinburgh for our honeymoon I had to play translator for my husband.

                And yes, where I'm from, we don't believe in saying the ending of words either... or really separating them completely from the previous word. It's a weird southern hybrid thing.

                  I've always wanted to go, anywhere and everywhere Western Europe, basically. I've got high hopes! (There's another one to get lodged in your head...sorry!) To go to school there...so awesome, and honeymoon in London/Edinburgh, dear me, fabulous.

                  Yep. One of those Southern thangs wink
