  • Infallible - Without any mistake

  •  

    The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament showeth His handiwork.

    Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night showeth knowledge.

    There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard.

    Their line is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them hath He set a tabernacle for the sun.

    - Psalm 19:1-4

     


    How does creation testify of its Creator? How do atheists and evolutionists deny God's revelation of Himself in their consciences and creation?

      packed a picnic lunch, and spent the afternoon at the city's swimming beach. Now that Michael was thirteen years old, this practice had become a regular Sunday custom to him.

      Once when discussing how to lead a Christian life, Michael's best friend, Robert, told him that spending Sunday afternoons at the beach was wrong. Michael disagreed.

      "When I do something wrong, my conscience tells me," Michael argued, "and I can honestly say that I do not feel that I am doing anything wrong on Sunday afternoon. "

    There are people in our society today who deny the revelation of God in creation. They believe that creation developed by itself, by chance, over long periods of time.

      Herman once toured an art gallery with a group of his fellow employees. He had previously spoken with some of them who did not believe that there was a God.

      As the group was admiring and commenting on the excellence of a beautiful oil painting of a mountain and lake landscape scene, Herman saw an opportunity to teach a fitting lesson.

      As they were speaking, he stepped forward and said seriously, "The painting you are admiring was actually never painted by an artist." As the group looked at him rather strangely, he continued, "This painting developed entirely by itself over a period of many years. Let me tell you its story. A person once built a cabin overlooking the lake that you see in this painting. One morning he set out a painting canvas, paints, and brushes on his picnic table, planning to paint this scene. However, before he could
