Let's be reasonable with one another, shall we?

We are going to the Creation Museum today. John and I and our four kids: 1, 8, 10 and 12 will be leaving for the three hour drive in just a little while. I am pretty excited. John has been there twice but I haven't seen it yet. Two of the kids went wth him last summer. I hope the baby is manageable!


  • Ooooohh! Rose you'll all love it! My wife & I went recently & I'm still on fire from it! God Bless y'all as you go!

  • One moment our Political leaders are asking for prayer and the next moment they are knocking on wood. Just an observation, not surprising though!

  • Hope you have a great time. Be sure and tell us all about it when you return.

  • It was really cool. The museum was not what I thought it would be, but it was neat anyways. I think it is a great ministry. It was more of a ministry than a museum. Great job they have done there.

    I was surprised to see AW Pink's 'the Sovereignty of God' in the limited selection of books in the gift shop!

  • Hi Rose, glad to hear you all had a good time.
    Here is something from that book:

    A dead man is utterly incapable of willing anything. Pink,Sovereignty, p.141.
    Pink comments: "The will of the natural man is opposed to God, and he has no will Godward until he has been born again." Pink, John, p 30.

    That's a little flavor of Pink

    have a great day!

  • Rose, Answers in Genesis have been selling MacArthur books for a few years now.

    Their breakaway group, Creation Ministries International recently made some Lordship Salvation statements in a newsletter.

    I suspect that a good deal of the Creationist movement is sympathetic to Calvinism.

    (That should not be taken as a criticism of Creationism as such)

    God Bless

  • Rose,

    I have been away for a while and have been catching up on yours and Antonio's blogs.

    Glad to see that you had a good time.

    Grace and Peace,

    Calvinism by the back door.

  • Interesting thing is, Matt, that the Institute for Creation Research had several workshops at this year's Grace Evangelical Society's National Conference.

    There are far more lordshippers who believe in the gap theory ;)

  • Welcome back Rose. I didn't see that terrible book, sorry about that. But I did notice some Macarthur stuff there if zI rememebr right. Still, a great ministry as you well-stated. God Bless.

    What you can leave out when the witnessed-to-soul starts getting interested.

    THE FALL OF ADAM: A mere blip which left his free will sovereignly intact - certainly nothing to feel guilty about.

    I jest again

    Glad that you enjoyed your day out. Was that a pun in there when you said that Pink's book was found in the limited book section?

  • Good Morning Rose


    have a great day in the Lord!

  • Hi Rose

    training manual

    Dead like a rock Frankenstein “ZAP”

    Results: completely downloaded and do the monster mash all the way to the end.

    Logic: Need much information to have life, even though you’re dead like a rock and need the "ZAP"?!?!

    Have questions see manual, under heading “Dreadful Decree of God.” Sub section “mystery”.

    Practical application: made willing

  • Colin,
    No I did not intend that as a play on words! It really was a very small section of books - very limited - that is why I was kind of surpised to see such an extremist fringe piece of literature there. :~)

    Alvin and Goodnight - you two crack me up!

    Yes I saw many of them too. Obviously there is a Calvinist Lordshipper in the house! hahaha

    Anything written by an Evangelical before 1980


    Anyone who reads extremist fringe literature (See above) especially with gold gilt pages and soft leather covers with red page marker and a reference column down the middle.


    Figurative term - not to be confused with the rat infested tumbledown shack which Calvinist Lordshippers will enjoy in heaven, while they are bound hand and foot and wail and gash their teeth, having been carted out because their wedding garment a.k.a a well thumbed, underlined, highlighted, memorised,well anotated, wept/drooled over copy of "Absolutely Free" was conspicous by its absence. Note: This is working on the assumption that the said Lordship Calvinists were ever saved in the first place. Did they ever "say after me" etc.,

    Here, I've got work to do...

    What the FGers (and their "nice" opponents) should open their correspondence with on this site. Often forgotten in the heat of the day/battle

  • Colin,
    You are in rare form today! heehee :~)

    By Blogger Rose~, at 6/18/2008 9:04 AM  

  • You know a lot of the things I say are meant to jest in their method of statement as well, I presume.

    (e.g.: Obviously there is a Calvinist Lordshipper in the house! hahaha)

    By Blogger Rose~, at 6/18/2008 9:06 AM  

  • And yes, Colin, Rose's Reasonings is a place where affirming words are not only welcome... but required. haha

  • I loved the Creation Museum when we went in October.

    Let me tell you a little story about when I went. I had one of the most encouraging conversations with a believer in the Lord in the food line. We talked long about the Lord, kids, and such. He was an older fellow and obviously a grandfather.

    He decided out of the blue to come up to me later and gave me $20 and said that "when I was your age I probably wouldn't spend any money on buying books, so I wanted to give you $20 so you could buy a book for yourself to study this more". Then he gave me $20 and walked away.

    He was such a sweet man and I am thankful for the book that he gave me in an act of kindness. Praise the Lord for those who are trying to serve Christ.
