Charlie Liebert’s Credibility to Give Analysis & Advice for “My Christian Children’s Education, What Should I Do?”

Last week I announced the release ofmy latest book “My Christian Children’s Education, What Should I Do?” which isavailable on Amazon as a Kindle download at $3.99 or paperback at $9.99 + shipping.  As a Christian educator, I’ve presented analysis and advice to help Christian parents make the best decisions to educate their children. This week I’ll summarize my experience in education to establish my credibility qualified to help Christian parents.

In 1996, I joined the board of Caldwell Academy, A Classical Christian School founded in Greensboro, NC in 1994. During my time on the board, the school doubled in size, relocated to a new permanent site, and built its first building.  Today Caldwell has three significant buildings and enrollment has grown to over 800 in grades K-5 through 12.  Immediately after I retired in 1994, I began a single proprietorship business called Creation, Dinosaurs and the Flood (CDEF) which hosted educational workshops and seminars for children and adults.  CDEF sold books and videos at these programs.  In 1990 CDEF established a website that answered over 100  Christian Apologetics questions about the Bible and science http://www.sixdaycreation.com. In 2011 the sales business was liquidated, but the site continues today.  In 1997, for two years I worked for Answers in Genesis, Ken Ham’s Biblical Creation ministry leading children’s workshops and adult seminars.  In 1998, I resigned from the Caldwell board toteach Science and Bible for that year. Keeping my interest at Caldwell alive, from 1999 until 2001 I led weekly Grammar science assembly programs. Beginning in 1995 until 2005, I produced an educational one-hour, weekly, public access TV show on Greensboro Community Television (GCTV) using footage shot at my seminars and workshops.  In August 2004 I began teaching business courses at Davidson County Community College (DCCC) in Lexington, North Carolina. I continue teaching today on-line courses.  At DCCC, I won 2 academic prizes for excellence in teaching, including a grant of $3,000.  I began work as an author in 2012.

To summarize in the last 27 years:

1) I’ve helped start and grow a Classical Christian School in Greensboro, NC,

2) Taught science at both the Grammar & Middle (Dialectic) School levels,

3) Led “Origins” seminars and workshops for Answers in Genesis and ministry CDEF.

4) For ten years, I produced an educational weekly TV show.  From local exposure on that show, I became known as the “Creation Guy” and was often recognized as I traveled in the Greensboro area.

5) Led more than 50 programs teaching Christian Apologetics in churches, schools, and civic clubs.

6) Counseled Christian parents and their children in Apologetics to counter the results of the students “loss of faith” when they left home and went to college.

7) Taught Business and general education subjects at Davidson County Community College for the last 14 years

I pray the LORD bless you as you consider your Biblical responsibility to educate your children.

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.”

My Testimony; why clear and logical thinking Atheists should become Agnostic.

During March I’ve given my testimony at three CBMC (Christian Business Men’s Connection) outreach events in Carlisle, York, and Chambersburg and I’ll be doing it again in Gettysburg next Wednesday at Dunlap’s Restaurant. I became a Christian at 35, converted from “hardcore” Atheism.  As I’ve spoken each time, during the Q&A, a common reaction has been: “Explain WHY you said Atheism is an illogical and impossible philosophy.  My Answer: No one can say:  “There is no God.” because a person must be omniscience to make that statement and NO man is!

To the Atheist: “Be honest with yourself.  Your belief that “there is NO God” is a FAITH statement based on your BELIEFS, not on any proof!” The absence of evidence is NOT proof.  Besides, proving that negative is impossible.  For example, I say: “There are no unicorns alive on Earth today.”  Can I prove that? NO!  I’d have to be able to see every square foot of the planet at the same time to be sure, and even then I might miss it because of the animals camouflage.  I’d need Planetary Omniscience to know for sure there are no Unicorns.

Since no man has perfect, absolute knowledge, the best an Atheist can say is “I don’t and can’t know if there is a God.”  He can’t say for certain “there is no God” because he’s not omniscient!  When the Atheist realizes this untenable, logical dilemma, he should flee to Agnosticism. Both Atheism and Agnosticism deny God—the Atheist with absurd certainty and the Agnostic with skeptical, uncertainty.  The Agnostic’s view is a confession of ignorance NOT knowledge or truth.  In the Bible, Romans addresses this as “suppressing the truth.”  Agnostics do not deny the existence of God but hold that one cannot know for sure whether or not God exists.

Ask the Agnostic: “Is there a God?” They typically reply, “I don’t know if there is a God or not, but if there is, he is not relevant to my life.” Most would probably add, “no one can know for sure if there is or is not a God, but it doesn’t matter.”

Nineteenth-century British scientist Thomas H. Huxley created the term “Agnostic” for himself in 1870.  He believed that only material phenomena were objects of exact knowledge. He made up the word from the prefix a, meaning “without, not,” as in amoral, and the noun Gnostic. Gnostic is related to the Greek word gnōsis, “knowledge,” which was used by early Christian writers to mean “higher, esoteric knowledge of spiritual things.”  In coining the term Agnostic, Huxley was considering a group of his fellow intellectuals—“ists,” as he called them—who eagerly embraced various doctrines or theories like Evolution that explained the Universe without God.

Astronomer Carl Sagan, a self-identified Agnostic, said, “The Cosmos is all that is or was or ever will be. Our feeblest contemplations of the Cosmos stir us. There is a tingling in the spine, a catch in the voice, a faint sensation, as if a distant memory, of falling from a height. We know we are approaching the greatest of mysteries.”

Worldviews and the Uniqueness of Christianity PART 2.

This BLOG is from Chapter 4 “The Uniqueness of Christianity” of:Always Be Ready to Give an Answer!” Last week we saw the three different views of Mankind’s position in this world: 1) God’s not relevant, and death is final. 2) Non-Christian religions escape death by human efforts, and 3) Christianity, God rescues man from death. All three worldviews answer the same question: “What happens to us when we die?” Christianity differs from all other worldviews and religions in a stark way that all humanity is helpless and hopeless in defeating death. All are condemned to Hell by both their nature and action.

The History.

God placed Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden with the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil to test their love and obedience. By not eating from the tree, they could continually demonstrate love for God as an act of their will. They had the choice to not love by disobedience, so they had true free will. God warned them that eating from the tree would have the consequence of death. When Adam ate from the tree, he brought the curse of sin and death to all of the creation. Adam’s spirit died immediately. His body entered the process of dying, but it would be some time before he would physically die. It’s as if God said: “You will begin to die (spiritual death), you will continue to die (aging), and eventually, you will be dead (physical death).

The Dilemma.

The entrance of sin meant all children of Adam and Eve are guilty of this rebellion by both birth and personal practice. We are born sinners, and we sin by intent daily. All mankind is dead in their spirit and will not seek a relationship with God, hating God by nature and practice (Read Romans 1–3). The situation is entirely hopeless. All are destined to Hell, and no one can do nothing to stop their death. If this were the end of the story, Christianity would be the most hopeless religion because there would be no way to escape death. We are all lost, condemned and hopeless, so God alone can provide a solution.

The Good News.

Now, the good news of the gospel! God himself came to earth as Jesus, the perfect man, also called the second Adam. He was not born by the natural process but rather miraculously conceived in the virgin’s womb. As a result is not a son of Adam, and does not inherit the sin nature. His spirit is alive. Jesus lived a perfect life obeying all God’s law and then sacrificed himself to pay the sin debt of some of mankind. Since people will not seek God because they are dead, God himself has to awaken them, to hear the call to receive the payment of their debt made by Jesus. It’s called substitutionary atonement. One life traded for another to satisfy justice. Lazarus in the grave is a great example! See my earlier blog: http://wp.me/p6OUE6-1y

LESSON: Christianity is unique in world religions because it alone teaches man is dead and will not seek God. God alone can provide escape from death and only through Jesus Christ

The Absolute Laws of Science Refute Atheism and Materialism.

You’ve heard Your Atheist, Humanist or Materialist relative or friend say: “I only believe in what I can see. Faith is for fools! The only reality is the material world. There is no supernatural! Everything is relative! There are no absolutes!”

Our world is full of people that deny the supernatural. They make explicit statements about the world and act as if they were questions because they are looking for a response from us.   In the last two weeks, we explored immaterial opposites and history to demonstrate that people who claim they only believe in the material world believe in many things that can’t be sensed. Today we’ll look at the third of these, non-material arguments, absolute scientific laws.

Absolute Scientific Laws

I: “I only believe in what I can see. My five senses tell me all I need to and can know. There is no supernatural; only the material world exists. Faith in something you can’t see is foolish.”

Me: “Do you believe in gravity, the laws of aerodynamics, or thermodynamics?”

I: (Affirms.)

Me: “Do these laws change?”

I: “I don’t know.”

Me: “Have you ever seen them change or know of any time or place they did?”

I: “No.”

Me: “Then we can accept they don’t change. These laws are absolute. The universe has some scientific laws that don’t change.”

I: “But there may be a place in the universe where they do change.”

Me: “That’s an argument from silence and is faulty logic. You are begging the question!”

I: “Okay, there are laws about the physical universe that don’t change.”

Me: There are also rules of morality that don’t change, as we saw above when we talked about justice last week. Your belief that everything is relative is false. There are absolutes in both the physical world and in morality. You agree to believe in things that can’t be sensed, you accept the testimony of others about events you didn’t experience, and the now you agree the universe contains absolutes that are always true. Your view of a purely materialistic reality is false. What you believe about the world isn’t true! None of the things you said you consider to be true are true. You have a worldview that is inconsistent, illogical, and false. I say with confidence; you need to find real answers to your view of reality. My Christian worldview is real, and demonstrable and it contains good news and bad news. First, the bad news: There is a God, who created all things, sustains all things and brings justice to all things. That justice carries a sentence that includes your death and condemnation. No human can escape death! You’re lost and without hope when you stand before that just God! Now the good news: God has provided a way to satisfy his justice, not by anything you can do, but by believing that Jesus paid the debt you could not pay by dying on the cross. Reconciliation to God takes place when you put your trust in Jesus.

Atheists, Agnostics & Materialists have FAITH because they believe History.

You’ve heard Your Atheist, Humanist or Materialist relative or friend say: “I only believe in what I can see. Faith is for fools! The only reality is the material world. There is no supernatural! Everything is relative! There are no absolutes!”

Our world is full of people that deny the supernatural. They make explicit statements about the world and act as if they were questions because they are looking for a response from us. These statements are easy to answer and often provide an opportunity to present the gospel. Materialist declarations challenge Christians to spar verbally. Don’t shy away from them; they will give you a chance to share the Gospel.

In the United States today there are many people, even in churches, who believe these materialistic imperatives from Atheism, Agnosticism, Humanism, Materialism, and Marginal Christianity.   All of these worldviews are described in “Worldviews and Religions” from the book Always Be Ready to Give an Answer!

Last week we explored immaterial opposites like hot-cold, wind, and light-darkness to demonstrate that people who claim they only believe in the material world believe in many things that can’t be sensed. Today we’ll look at the second of these non-material arguments, the Historical Narrative dialogue. Our whole understanding of history is based on others writings and experiences and not on our knowledge. WE believe in history by faith in the ones who communicated it to us.

Historical Narratives

I: “I only believe in what I can see. My five senses tell me all I need to and can know. There is no supernatural; only the material world exists. Faith in something you can’t see is foolish.”

Me: “Do you believe George Washington was a real person? Did you ever see him? You only have the testimony of books written by other men.”

I: “Of course.”

Me: “Do you believe there was a Roman Empire? Do you believe two world wars occurred in the twentieth century?” (You can use as many examples as you can think of, just don’t use any events that happened during the person’s lifetime.)

I: “These things are historical events I know happened.”

Me: “You only know about past events that you didn’t witness through the testimony of others. So, you trust in something you did not see. Do you concede you believe history through the testimony of others?

I: (Affirms.)

Me: Then let me tell you some history. The life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ are the most documented events of all time. If the stories about Jesus were not true, we would know because men and women don’t sacrifice their lives for a lie. Besides the testimony of history, we have two-thousand-plus years of history to affirm Jesus’ saving power.” (Give a short testimony.) “What about you? Do you believe Jesus lived, died, and rose from the dead to bring you salvation?”
