“JESUS” at Sight and Sound Theater.

Terry and I went to see the production of “JESUS’” at the Sight and Sound Theater in Lancaster on Wednesday.  This is our first time at S&S and we were amazed.  Sight & Sound’s unique theater experience begins with a 2,000-seat auditorium, a 300-ft stage that surrounds the audience on three sides, state-of-the-art technology and live animals.  The animals we saw included live pigs, sheep, goats, and horses all running up the aisles.  The show was amazing and I recommend it to anyone.  Parking was well organized we had no problem coming or going.  Here is some info about the theater and the JESUS show.

OUR MISSIONOur purpose is to present the Gospel of Jesus Christ and sow the Word of God into the lives of customers, guests and fellow workers by visualizing and dramatizing the scriptures, through inspirational productions, encouraging others and seeking always to be dedicated and wise stewards of our God-given talents and resources.

TIMELESS STORY OF RELENTLESS LOVE While Jesus’ story may be familiar, his actions are unexpected. He befriends outcasts and heals the hurting. He challenges social norms and confronts hypocrisy. He sets sail with fishermen and reasons with religious scholars. And the lives he touches will never be the same. From the streets of Jerusalem to the raging Sea of Galilee, there’s no place—and no person—that his love can’t reach.

Several of Charlie’s experiences with Christian education, one good reason why and a great example of his saving grace.

Charlie became a Christian in March, and Terry in May,1977. In mid-1978 they moved to Mauldin, near Greenville, SC.   Soon after arriving in Greenville, Terry tried to register our son for second grade in the local public school. On three separate occasions, she was unable to register him. The pastor from Mitchell Road Presbyterian Church, where we were attending, came to visit us the week before school was to begin to encourage us to enroll our children in MRPC’s Christian school. I remember Dr. Thomas Cross saying: “As Christians, you want to bring your covenant children up in the faith and become believers as you are. Christian School will be consistent with everything you teach them at home. Since the public school’s foundation is Humanism, when you put them there, you bring them into the camp of the enemy of Christ for 5 hours a day. Most parents can’t or won’t undo the daily damage done in those schools.” So, began our commitment to educating our children in a Christian school.

After we had been in MRPC for more than a year Terry and I were asked to help start a mission church in nearby Simpsonville. I had been trained and ordained as a Deacon and then as an Elder. Three Elders, John Wheeler, Render Cains and myself were the founding elders of Davenport Road Presbyterian Church. One of my responsibilities was teaching the high school class. One Sunday the lesson was on Jesus teaching about building your house on the rock or the sand from Matthew

Matthew 7:24-27“Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock. And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on the rock. And everyone who hears these words of mine and does not do them will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand. And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell, and great was the fall of it.”

The lesson included little paper houses and pages with pictures of sand and rock. I thought this was a weak, childish lesson, BUT I taught it faithfully. I even told Terry on the ride home that I thought it was a stupid lesson. Years later back in Greensboro, I met one of the students from that class. He said: “Mr. Liebert do you remember teaching the lesson about the two houses, one built on sand and the other built on rock”. I confirmed I remembered. “Well, that lesson changed my life!” Lesson learned by me! NEVER underestimate God’s ability to use weak vessels to carry out his will and don’t trust your sinful judgment to sell God’s Word short! After more than 40 years as a Christian and an educator Gods’s word is still my guide.

Two Liebert Family Stories of Survival, Life, and Death.

This week I’m blogging two excerpts from my book: Liebert Annals in Deutschland, Our Complete German History.The blogs are taken from the short stories: Rosemarie, Kristallnacht Transformation.And Helene at Mama Henney’s Boarding School for Girls. For info go to  http://sixdaycreation.com or find on Kindle/Amazon.com   

Rosemarie, Kristallnacht Transformation is the story of how my twice Jewish aunt, survives the Holocaust as her gentile cousin Olga Quandt.  Twice Jewish because she was the daughter of and married to a Jew. It’s Berlin, Germany, the day after Kristallnacht.  Her uncles’ Jewelry store’s been looted and all 19 family members disappeared.  She knew she had to find a way to hide.  The “escape bag” of diamonds hidden under the store’s floorboards could let her become her dead cousin Olga because she died in Africa with no record of her death in Germany.

EXCERPT: Berlin, downtown, 11/12/1938 1:15 AM.  Rosemarie stopped at the corner and looked down the street toward her uncles Hans and Fritz’s Jewelry store.  As she expected the windows were broken and the glass and other remnants of the previous night’s looting were still on the sidewalk.  On the far corner, two Gestapo stood under the street light smoking. The advertising sign that usually hung in the window  “Diamanten und Gold Zuverkaufen” (Diamonds and Gold For Sale) was on the sidewalk below the window.  Painted on it in large, red letters was the word JUDEN! She knew she had to see if the “escape bag” was still there, but she would have to wait until the SS was gone.  That bag could be the difference between life and death!

Helene at Mama Henney’s Boarding School for Girls.  From 1898 until 1901 my Grandmother Helene was in Italy at a school for aristocratic girls from all over Europe with lung diseases that could be helped by the Italian climate.  Three times a year Europe’s ruling aristocrats would bring their sons to a school ball to meet potential wives.  Preparation for the annual Departure Ball, Friday, June 24, 1898, included Wednesday and Thursday afternoon dance practice sessions.  On Thursday, Heidi arrived from Munich.  She was very ill with TB so, she knows she can only dance a few times, so she asks for the best dancer, Helene, my grandmother.

EXCERPT:Heidi’s Last Dance.   Helene tells Heidi’s story to her children in 1922: “For music we just had one violinist to play waltzes.  After our first dance, Heidi is very, very tired. She collapses into a chair and immediately falls asleep.  About an hour later, after her second dance she coughs up blood for several minutes, and her father tells her: “No more dancing.”  Another hour later, Heidi’s father’s gone, and dance practice is about to end. Although she looks exhausted, she insists on dancing one last time.  I help her out of the chair onto the dance floor.  Heidi whispers in my ear: “Hold on to me very tight.  I don’t feel strong.”  She lays her head on my shoulder and sighs, her last breath. Thinking she fainted, I carry her to a chair and let her down slowly.  Her parents rush over, but she’s gone.  Her parents thank me for, ‘making Heidi’s last hour happy.’  All the girls in the school, except Gretta, wore black armbands for the next month.”

Newspaper Article “Liberated Lieberts” Jesus Rescues US!

My blog this week is a newspaper article I recently discovered published 18 years ago. It’s longer than my usual blog but worth reading.  I’m posting it because it dramatically explains Terry and my salvation and our call to Christ.  Note: This article originally appeared in the September 15, 2000 edition of the Charlotte World (North Carolina, USA) newspaper written by Paul Chesser.  https://answersingenesis.org/ministry-news/ministry/liberated-lieberts/

Greensboro NC—Charlie Liebert’s idea of a good time back in New Jersey was to drink beer with a bunch of buddies and mock Billy Graham on television.

A self-described “atheistic evolutionist,” Liebert would ridicule the fact that he and his friends were “sinners.” Despite the foolishness of the times and circumstances though, he says it still had an effect on him.  “The point was, I heard the Gospel go in,” he said.

The former chemist from Greensboro has repented to the point where he teaches creation science workshops, contracting regularly with the ministry Answers in Genesis. He even looks scientific, with receding hairline, a full, neatly trimmed beard and rounded glasses. The name “Liebert” gives the impression that the stereotypical German laboratory accent might tumble from his lips, but his dialect is distinctly Long Island.

Liebert grew up in New York as the son of German immigrants. His father, who was half-Jewish, emigrated from his mother country at the age of 13 in 1928. Liebert’s grandfather was a German officer in World War I.

Attending public school on Long Island, Liebert said science teaching indoctrinated him into evolutionist beliefs. He followed his parents to Methodist church but dropped out at age 16 when the pulpit preaching on the evils of alcohol contradicted what he knew about the lifestyles of much of the congregation.

Most of Liebert’s chemistry career covered his 27 years with Ciba-Geigy, whom he started working for in 1967. Six years later the company relocated him to Greensboro, and by then he and his wife, Terry, had two small children under age three. Not long after arriving in North Carolina, Terry decided to become involved in church again after a long absence, mostly for the children’s sake. Terry’s upbringing had been solidly Catholic, but she started attending an Episcopal church, which she enjoyed for its social aspects.

“It was a good middle ground for an ex-Catholic and Methodist,” she said.

Charlie would have none of it, so Terry would leave the children home with him on Sunday mornings. A few months of child-care responsibilities, however, inspired Charlie to start going to church with Terry.

At the same time, they experienced severe marital strains. Charlie succumbed to temptations with alcohol, and in 1977 they started talking about divorce. By then, his worldview had progressed from atheist to agnostic—mild progress.

Nearing his low point, Charlie attended a retreat in Asheville in March 1977. It was there where a workshop speaker, and the Holy Spirit, confronted him with three questions that he couldn’t answer:

What’s your purpose in life?          What does life mean?         Where are you going?

“I could see myself going down the tubes,” said Charlie. “So, I said, ‘God, if you’re there, come in; I need some help.’”

At that point, he said he was completely confused intellectually. Everything he had ever learned about science and evolution was a contradiction to what his new spiritual life represented. “I had to renew my mind,” he said.

Charlie returned home on fire for God and immediately began engrossing himself in the Bible and other books to straighten out his scientific puzzlement. Meanwhile, Terry felt left in the dust. She was never interested in science and resented all his reading.

“It was an immediate change in him,” said Terry. “But he didn’t know how to share the gospel with me. I was in such darkness.”

It began almost two months of spiritual depression for Terry, with most of her time alone spent “constantly crying.” Her best friend moved away in April, and with her marriage in tatters, she felt desperately alone. Her Catholic background and recent Episcopalianism collided in her mind, with neither making sense. She said: “The Lord was working in me.”

“Being a Catholic, you’re always in hell. I only saw flames in my mind,” she said. “And the Episcopal Church wasn’t looking for you to be born again, but for spiritual renewal.”

Two months after Charlie’s conversion, Terry traveled to a women’s retreat. It also turned out to be a catalytic event for her turning to Christ. Instead of merely understanding that Christ died for the sins of the whole world, Terry realized that He was her personal savior.

Christ filled the void of the friend who moved away and began healing their near-broken marriage.

“Being in Christ truly made us one spiritually,” remembered Terry. “Because we were so excited about the Lord, it was instant.”

Charlie continued to toil for Ciba-Geigy and read, read, read. Three years passed before he could be peaceful with the creationist explanation for the origin of life. He calls himself a “pragmatic scientist,” and believes he is uniquely qualified to teach creation because “I understand the other side of the issue,” he said.

He began teaching science in 1982 at the request of a homeschooling mother and ended up developing creation workshops, which he taught as side work. His workshops even passed muster with Ken Ham, Answers in Genesis’s executive director, who began contracting Liebert to lead workshops and seminars on their behalf in 1994. That year, Ciba-Geigy cut back on their workforce, and Liebert took early retirement so he could teach creation as his primary occupation.

REVISED: The Charlie and Terry now, in 2018 are members of Redeemer OPC in Carlisle Pennsylvania. His ministry has excelled as well, with Charlie teaching his materials around the country. He has spoken throughout the Carolinas and around the Southeast.  For ten years, 1995-2005, Charlie produced his television show, “Creation Foundation Explanation,” on local cable access in Greensboro.

“The thing that is most frustrating as a creation scientist is the outright lying the evolutionists do to convince the public,” said Charlie. “It’s bad science, and it’s lies.”

Charlie Liebert’s short story about his grandmother at 15-18 in 1899. Helene [Hel-lain-a] at Mama Henney’s Boarding School for Girls.

Recently, I’ve written three stories that tell my family’s history in Germany before my dad, and his mother came to the US in 1928.  When I turned 16 on September 2, 1957, I got my driver’s license and three weeks later my first car, a seven-year-old 1950 Ford.  I could now travel on my own.  My father’s mother, Helene Quandt Liebert Gohmann, lived in the small town, Copiague, 10 miles east of where we lived in Amityville.  Her health, at 74, was faltering because she had only one functioning lung and smoked cigarettes and cigars secretly.  My dad suggested my grandmother help me with the German I was studying by having lunch together on Saturdays.  We would speak German, and I would (secretly) monitor her health.  She knew, of course, precisely what I was doing, but she loved telling me stories about her life and speaking German, so she didn’t object to my visits.  So, began a 2½-year adventure learning about my family and their living in Germany.  The story highlighted today comes from those dialogues. When my grandmother, Helene, was 15 she was sent to Northern Italy to an all-girls school to recover from Tuberculous.  This story captures her three years at Mama Henny’s Boarding School for Girls.   Teenage girls love this story

Helene was 15, living with her family in Berlin.  Her great-grandfather, a high-ranking aristocrat left France in 1788 and moved with the family’s wealth to Germany. They had lived in Berlin ever since.  In late 1897 her world was shattered when the doctor said: “You have TB!” which was an almost certain death sentence. She looked forward to a great inheritance, but now she had TB. Would she live to have a wonderful life or die in her youth?  Her father, Herr Quandt, found a school in northern Italy, near Milan, that took aristocratic girls with lung diseases.  Many returned home after three years at Mama Henney’s Boarding School for Girls in good health. Both the climate and the environment of study seemed to help to heal the girls.  Helene, her sister Eva and her best friend Bette embarked on a three-year adventure to school in northern Italy.  Helene is their story of life and death, joy, and sorrow, Illness and health, leadership and revenge.  Three girls would begin at Mama Henneys in 1898, but in 1901 only two would return to Berlin.   This story is the recollections of real events from the life of the author’s grandmother.
