Public School Children Pray for Salvation
The picture on this page was taken at the close of one of our public school creation assemblies. Over the last two weeks we have given assemblies to 35 different Fiji public schools attended by over 15,000 first through twelfth graders. Every student received a copy of our Inspired Evidence creation devotional book. These student assemblies (some with over 1000 students present) sang Christian hymns in perfect harmony while waiting for the speaker to begin. They listened with rapt attention to every word about how science confirms what the Bible has to say about their creation. They were polite, courteous, and longing to learn. All of the students ended the assembly in prayer as they thanked JESUS for creating them; for providing teachers and schools; and they asked Jesus to forgive their sins and become their Savior. And these are Fiji’s publicly funded schools!
The teachers were also astounded at the evidence presented for a Biblical worldview of science and history. Their textbooks are permeated with evolutionary concepts and they were thrilled to hear that there is scientific evidence supporting a biblical explanation for their origin. At each assembly:
• The students learned how the complexity of life could never have formed itself, the fossil record reveals creation (not evolution), and how variation within a “kind” of organism does not support the evolutionary belief that monkeys turned into people or bacteria turned into fish.• We shared how the rock layers of the Earth were laid down rapidly and recently by the flood of Noah.
• We showed how dinosaur bones contain soft tissue that could not be there if these bones were millions of years old.
• They learned how coal could form a matter of months during the compaction of vegetation ripped up during this flood. Coal did not require millions of years to form.
• “Lights went on” as they heard that there are fossil seashells on top of Mt. Everest – showing that even these rock layers were formed recently and rapidly during the flood of Noah and that the world’s mountains formed at the end of this flood – only about 5000 years ago.
What an incredible trip, ministering to the youth of a culture still open to biblical truth.
For a fascinating, visual presentation of the evidence supporting a Biblical creation viewpoint see the The Rocks Cry Out Curriculum.
The sincerity on the faces of these school children moved me to tears… and prayer that the seeds of faith that have been planted will grow and be fruitful. May God bless this ministry mightily! “How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him who brings good news, who proclaims peace, who brings glad tidings of good things, who proclaims salvation, who says to Zion (and, I add… Fiji), Your God reigns!” (Isaiah 52:7, NKJV).
