Creatures with the “Breath of Life” are affected by death, the penalty for Adam’s SIN! Nephesh!

In addition to the classification system for living organisms, the Bible also separates what scientists call “higher” animals from all others.  The word used in Scripture is “nephesh” and is most often translated as “soul.”  It is also defined as the “breath of life.” God told Noah which creatures to take on the Arkand based on these instructions we conclude, animals that breathe will be saved in the ark, and those that are left outside will drown in the flood.  Since Insects do not breathe but absorb oxygen through other means, they do not have the breath of life(lungs). Insects can stay underwater for long periods of time, and a majority spend part of their life cycle in water. Insects did not go on the Ark but survive in the flood waters.

Now we define animal death as opposed to plant death. Plants don’t die in the same way the soul animals do.  For example; when you eat fruit like an orange you do not destroy its life in the seed because even if the seed passes through an organism’s body, it still has life. Plant it and watch it grow.  That is not true when you eat the chicken sandwich. The chicken has given up its life.

When the Bible talks about death as the penalty for sin, it refers to the death ofhumans and the creatures that have soul life, not insects or plants.  As people, we recognize this and grieve when a loved one dies.   We know in our hearts this is not the way life is supposed to be and that knowledge is part of our being made in God’s image. Watch an animal special on TV and see the lion take down a zebra, kill it and begin to eat it. Other zebras don’t grieve the death of one of the herb because they don’t have an awareness ofdeath as sin’s penalty and they are not made in God’s image.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Nephesh (נֶ֫פֶשׁnép̄eš) is a Biblical Hebrew word which refers to the aspects of sentience, and human beings and other animals are both described as having nephesh. Plants, as an example of live organisms, are not referred to in the Bible as having nephesh. The term נפשis literally “soul,” although it is commonly rendered as “life” in English translations…  In Genesis 2:7 the text is that Adam was not given a nephesh but “became a living nephesh…” Nephesh, when put with another word, can detail aspects related to the concept of nephesh; with רוּחַrûach (“spirit”) it describes a part of men that is immaterial, like mind, emotions, will, intellect, personality, and conscience, Job 7:11.

Biblical use:  The word nephesh occurs 754 times in the Hebrew Bible. The first four times it is used exclusively to describe animals: Gen 1:20 (sea life), Gen 1:21 (great sea life), Gen 1:24 (land creatures), Gen 1:30 (birds and land creatures).

Introducing: God’s Created Creatures Wreck Evolution. A Teaching Guide for Biblical Creation.

Today I’m introducing my new teaching book for Christian Biblical Creationists, God’s Created Creatures Wreck Evolution. A Teaching Guide for Biblical Creation.      I became a Christian at age 35, in 1977. After about 4 years of study, I began teaching children and adults Christian Apologetics in several different church settings.  Seventeen years later, in 1994, I retired from the Corporate world and began conducting workshops for children, in homeschools, churches and Christian schools, showing “Creation” as the real explanation for our origin.   For about two years, from 1977 to 1999, I led workshops for Ken Ham’s ministry “Answer In Genesis.”   From all my teaching and writing experience I’ve developed many lessons using living creatures to show how Creation defeats Evolution.  In this book I’ve created a teaching tool for Christian educators and parents that use examples from the natural world to teach the flaws of Evolution to Grammar and Middle school children. http://sixdaycreation.com  

I’ll keep the language simple and use a lot of pictures to make teaching easy and fun. Most units are an even number of pages so you can open the book and see all of a lesson at one time, although some are in two parts.  As a long time, teacher of all ages I suggest, particularly with young children, using one lesson at a time.  Make the teaching fun and don’t be afraid to use the Internet to enhance your teaching but always use caution by keeping children supervised. SO, USE CONTROLS AND FILTERS!! May the LORD bless you when you use this book to teach your children.  The book is divided into four Chapters: 1) Science, 2) Day 5 the SEA, 3) Day 5 the AIR, and 4) Day 6 the LAND.  Each chapter shows examples of Evolution’s failure to explain nature’s creatures, their design and behaviors.  Each example contains goal(s) for that particular topic. There are more than 25 activities on 70+ pages with seven chats/tables and six worksheets.  All 135+ pictures are full color. Here’s four examples of some activity pages. ONLY $14.99 or $14.00 at my website http://www.sixdaycreation.com  Quantity discount? contact Charlie at  charlie@sixdaycreation.com.  If you buy it and like it please write a review on Amazon.

Charlie Liebert’s website http://sixdaycreation.com revised and updated.

My website http://sixdaycreation.com has been renewed and improved to include all the resources I’ve produced to help Christians gain confidence in their faith and mature into effective personal evangelists.  In my more than 30 years as an Apologist, I’ve videoed many answers to questions about religion, science and the Gospel.  On this site there are more than 60 answers linked tomy YouTube channel in nine categories: 1) 10 Common Questions, 2) Astronomy, 3) Bible Questions, 4) Creation & Evolution, 5) Creation Seminar (a complete seminar in 12 parts) 6) Dating & Fossils, 7) Dinosaurs, 8) Noah’s Flood and 9) Races & Genetics.

All four of my published Christian books are listed in two categories.  Since I’ve begun to publish with KDP (Kindle Direct Publishing), I’ve been able to reduce my book prices by an average of 40%.  ALL of my books now sell for $9.00 or less.  All are available on my website http://sixdaycreation.com

Part 2 of Charlie Liebert’s Christian Apologetics Trilogy. 1 Personal Evangelism 2 Questions & Answers 3 Evolution Debunked

Last week I recounted how I came to write my first book: “Always Be Ready to Give an Answer!”  because I saw many of my Christian friends afraid to share the gospel with the unbelievers they encountered every day. Why were they so hesitant? When I asked, the most common answer was:

“Because I can’t answer all the hard questions they ask me, like, “Where did Cain get his wife? What happens to the native in the jungle who has never heard the gospel? Does he go to hell? Why do bad things happen to good people?” The Bible says, ‘Be ready to give an answer for the hope that is in you.’ But I’m not ready! I can’t answer those questions! I just don’t know enough about the Bible or science or anything else! Help!”

Always Be Ready to Give an Answer! Develops a personal, Christian evangelism strategy that doesn’t immediately answer the hard questions but still gets to the gospel every time a believer has an opportunity. Using this strategy we share our lives in Christ before we answer our listener’s questions. Now that you’ve shared the Gospel, you still need to answer those hard questions.

On my website “sixdaycreation.com” I’ve answered questions for 25 years.  Questions and answers from 106 of those are in “ANSWERS For “The Hope That Is in You.”  A difficult area for most Christians is explaining their belief in Biblical Creation in a culture steeped in Darwinian Evolution.  In “ANSWERS…” I addressed the cultural context of Evolutionary science answering the two most important implications of Evolution: 1) the value of human life and 2) racism’s evolution connection. This critique of Evolution’s impact on society will give you more ammunition to fight the good fight in our spiritual war with e vil. It will fortify your faith and provide even more answers.

As I was finishing “ANSWERS …” I realized that although I’d compared Creation and Evolution in that book, I had not shown the IMPOSSIBILITY of Atheistic Evolution. So now in my third book, Without 3 Miracles Darwin’s Dead! Science Proves Atheistic Evolution is IMPOSSIBLE. I’ll expose Evolution’s impossibility because:

Evolution is NOT science; it’s a faith statement about the past!

Evolution breaks three unbreakable scientific laws, and that’s impossible! Scientific laws CAN”T ever be broken, and remain laws. Because Evolution breaks scientific laws, it must fall back, at least, to a theory or a hypothesis.  It’s not scientific because it postulates past events that CANNOT be addressed by science.

Evolution’s never been observed in a laboratory or the field. Dr. Richard Dawkins, one of the foremost Evolutionists in the world, said. “Evolution has been observed. It’s just that it hasn’t been observed when it’s happening.” (Authors note.  That’s a nonsense statement!!)

The missing links between apes and men are ALL still missing,

There are some creatures whose behavior, design or intricate complexity Evolution cannot explain.  The history of Evolution contains many frauds, and I’ve highlighted two of them.

TWO QUESTIONS ABOUT CREATION. Young Earth (YEC) vs. Old Earth Creation (OEC): Did God lie in “YEC” because newly created things look old, and they are NOT? Does “OEC” conflict with Scripture?

I was recently confronted by an “Old Earth Creation” (OEC) Christian with the challenge: “I don’t believe in a Young Earth, because God lied in Genesis since newly created things look old, and they are NOT!

I responded.  “You made a false assumption in your objection to “Young Earth Creation” (YEC).  God is not deceptive, but God is outside of time. You assumed the age of anything can be determined from its present state, which is called Uniformitarianism. This is NOT true. When God creates, the item appears older than it is because of that false assumption. For example, when Adam was one second old, how old did he appear 18, 20?  When God created the fruit trees, they were ready to bear fruit. That takes YEARS from the seed. When Jesus changed the water into wine, it was splendid wine. The only way we can get good wine is to age it. Uniformitarianism is a false assumption!   When God creates, the objects have an appearance of age.  That’s not deceptive.  You have been led astray because you made that false assumption.”

Then I said: “Also OEC is inconsistent with theology taught by Scripture.”  He disagreed.  So, I continued: “The OEC position directly violates God’s word at least twice. These conflicts are real and not an interpretation of the meaning of the words of Scripture. These two are:

First, Death in Creation before Adam sins in Genesis 3 and

 Second, an imperfect Creation before the end of Day Six.

Both are violations of the nature and character of God as He revealed Himself in Scripture.  There are other indirect Biblical reasons, but they are not as compelling as these two. For example: why did God give us the genealogies in Genesis 5 and 11 and Luke and Matthew if dating isn’t important?”

A Caveat.  I don’t believe that Christians that hold the OEC position are not saved, but that that belief is inconsistent with what the Bible teaches. Believers understanding of God is imperfect because we are sinners. I implore those accept OEC to be receptive to the teaching of God’s Word. Remember, in my journey I was first an Atheistic Evolutionist, and then a Theistic Evolutionist, then I considered gap, day-age, long days, etc. and finally arrived at the “Young Earth” position three years after my conversion. It took an extended study of both Scripture and science to become a YEC.  I went through a process of Evolution in my life, from Atheistic Evolutionist to Young Earth Creationist! He left promising to consider what I said.  I pray he does.

This blog is based on questions 62 and 69 in my book “ANSWERS for “The Hope That Is In You.” that has answers to more than 100 questions Christians are frequently asked.  Are you afraid of those hard questions your friends and family member ask that you can’t answer?  Here is a reference you can carry to answer those “hard” questions. http://yourchristiananswers.com

Q: Why did Charlie Liebert write “Without 3 Miracles Darwin’s Dead!”? A: To show “Science Proves Atheistic Evolution Is IMPOSSIBLE!”

Newsflash:  My efforts to raise $6,000 for marketing “Without 3 Miracles Darwin’s Dead!” has reached $5,775 with only one week left in my seven-week campaign.  Please contribute TODAY @ https://igg.me/at/W3MDD.  A contribution of $50 gets a softback copy of this book and $150 a hardback copy.  Get yours by contributing today!

In Charlie Liebert’s first book Always Be Ready to Give an Answer! he developed an effective personal Christian evangelism strategy to get past unbelievers questions and present the Gospel in all Christian encounters. After one of his spiritual mentors asked, “Well, shouldn’t you answer the questions?” he wrote his second book, ANSWERS For “The Hope That Is In You!”  It answers more than 100 questions commonly asked by unbelievers to stump or silence Christians.

Charlie says: “As I was finishing ANSWERS … I realized that although I’d compared Creation and Evolution in that book, I had not shown the IMPOSSIBILITY of Atheistic Evolution. So now, in my third book, Without 3 Miracles Darwin’s Dead! Science Proves Atheistic Evolution is IMPOSSIBLE! I expose that impossibility:

  • Evolution is NOT science; it’s a faith statement about the past!
  • Evolution breaks three unbreakable scientific laws, and that’s impossible! Scientific laws CAN’T ever be broken, and remain laws.
  • Evolution’s never been observed in a laboratory or the field. Dr. Richard Dawkins said. “Evolution has been observed. It’s just that it hasn’t been observed when it’s happening.”
  • The missing links between apes and men are ALL still missing,
  • There are some creatures whose behavior, design or complexity Evolution cannot explain.
  • The history of Evolution contains many frauds, and I’ll highlight two of them.

How do Evolution proponents address these issues? Denial, rationalization or just plain lying! They can’t answer these problems, and they know it.  It’s true; Science Proves Atheistic Evolution is IMPOSSIBLE!”

Evolution has damaging effects on our culture and wastes resources that could be used to improve health and living conditions in the US. Millions of tax dollars are spent on evolutionary research that will NEVER bring value to humanity.  It’s a waste of resources based on a lie.

Both Creation and Evolution seek to answer the question: “Where did we come from?” The only reasonable answer is, “We are created in God’s image for purpose.” We did not originate from an explosion of Hydrogen gas and ascend out of pond scum!

This book asks and answers the question, “Is Atheistic Evolution possible?” In the mind of any intelligent, open-minded person the answer must be, “Science Proves Atheistic Evolution is IMPOSSIBLE!”

Blog 2017 40 10/13/2017 Evolution’s Third IMPOSSIBLE problem! Going uphill in a downhill Universe.

This week we close a series of three articles summarizing the themes of my new book “Without 3 Miracles Darwin’s Dead!” subtitled “Science Proves Atheistic Evolution is IMPOSSIBLE.” There are two opposite views to explain how we got here: Evolution, everything appeared very slowly during billions of years. OR Creation, God made everything in six days about 6,000 years ago. Which one is true? Both frameworks face the same obstacles. There are three steps in both that require miraculous action because they violate known and proven scientific LAWS.  Laws of science have NO exceptions. If they do, they can’t be laws, only a theory or a hypothesis. For Creationists, breaking scientific laws requires no explanation because Creation by its very nature is supernatural and God has the power to break laws, and they remain laws. These events are called miracles.

3) UPHILL MOLASSES! Decreasing Entropy, Increased Information in Genetic Systems, DNA/RNA, Order from Chaos.

Many arguments are made against increasing order in the Universe.  Here are four examples: 1) DNA and New Information, 2) From Simple to Complex. 3) Adding Energy With or Without Machines and 4) Biological Complexity

The Evolutionary fallacy of decreasing entropy requires DNA to develop new information. All living organisms contain the four-letter language system we call DNA. In animals that sexually reproduce each new generation is the product of two different individuals with different DNA. Each gender, male and female, contributes half of the genetic material for one complete new unique individual. The DNA language has three billion pairs in humans; therefore, the possible unique children born to any human couple is 102017. Indeed, that proves every person is a unique individual.

DNA communicates the characteristics of living organisms to the next generation so, this information cannot come from random processes; it can only come from intelligence. All our knowledge in the field of information Science confirms orderly information ONLY come from an intelligent source.

Here, then, is the third step of faith for the Atheist. For Evolution to work complex information must arise without intelligence. An absurd belief! This level of faith is illustrated by Richard Dawkins book Climbing Mount Improbable where he argues intelligence can come from no intelligence.

Watches and the beach.  Here’s an illustration of the problem of information created without intelligence. All the materials needed to make a timepiece are either dissolved in ocean water and present in the sand on the beach, but we don’t walk down the beach looking for watches washed up on shore. A watch requires a watchmaker. A typical Rolex watch contains at least 115 precisely designed parts including gears, screws, battery, frame, hands, etc. Even if we had all the parts and shook them together in a bag for millions of years, we still won’t have a watch. The components each have to be precisely made and then the watch assembled. If we consider the 115 parts randomly assembled one at a time, we would need 2.92 X 10158 attempts to get a functioning watch. That’s one chance in a number higher than the electrons in the Universe (1080).
