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.

How my twice Jewish Aunt survived the Holocaust. “Rosemarie, Kristallnacht Transformation.”

“Rosemarie, Kristallnacht Transformation”  available on Kindle and Amazon, is the amazing true story of how my Jewish aunt survived the Holocaust.  Rosemarie Liebert was twice a Jew.  She was the daughter of a Jew, and she had beenmarried to a deceased Jew.  It’s Berlin, Germany, November 12, 1938 the day after Kristallnacht.  Her uncle’s Jewelry store has been looted.  All 19 members of her three uncle’s families disappeared.  She knew now she had to find a way to hide.  The “escape bag” filed with diamonds could save her by letting her become her dead cousin Olga.   Olga died in Africa with no record of her death in Germany.  .  The Gestapo’s pursuit is relentless. Rosemarie, the twice Jew, survives the Holocaust as the gentile Olga Julia Quandt

Berlin, downtown, November 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 zu verkaufen” (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.  As she stood there waiting she thought:  “How did I ever get to this situation?”  As she stood atthe corner waiting, her thoughts flashed back to some of her life events

Brussels, Gestapo HQ 12/23/1941:Two Gestapo officers with one man and one woman dressed in civilian clothes entered and sat in the four opposite chairs.  Only the woman smiled.  The uniformed officer that sat almost directly opposite Olga opened a folder and began to read.

“Your papers indicate you are Olga Julia Quandt. You were born in Munich on May 16, 1908, to Shavoy and Marie Quandt.  Is that true?”

Olga/Rosemarie realized they were already trying to trap her. “No, that is not true.  I was born in Berlin on June 16, 1908.”

The officer smiled and sarcastically said: “Very good.  You know when and where you were born.  Now let us review our problem. We have a record of you leaving Germany in 1936, but we can find no record of your return to Germany.  How and when did you come back?”

Olga realized she was in a dilemma.  How would she explain this?  The real Olga never came back. She died in Africa, and her body and papers were burned because of the jungle fever.

To stall for time, she said slowly: “I can explain this.”

Authors note: I dedicate this story of my aunt and to my 18 family members from Berlin who did not survive the Holocaust.

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 first novel “Yellowstone’s Child” is on Kindle and in Print.

If Yellowstone’s Child, a fictional novel, were a movie, it would be rated “PG.” At about 150, pages it is a GREAT read for teens.  Readers complain that once started they weren’t able to put it down.  There are two underlying messages in Yellowstone’s Child.  First, all my characters are human. None of them is perfect. So, the reader will recognize humankind’s sinful imperfection. It is certain every one of us is NOT infallible. Second, as the plot unfolds, it shows life’s uncertainty and unpredictability. Since, as a Christian, I won’t use sex or violence to attract readers I opt for drama, plot reversals and “the story” within the story to keep the reader’s interest.  One of my first readers complained: “Yellowstone’s Child made me cry five times, twice for sadness, three times for joy.”   It’s that kind of a story!

Yellowstone’s Child’s central theme is personal identity, how one answers the question, “Who am I?”  The story begins when a married couple, Sam and Gloria Graham, chicken farmers from Mississippi, lose their ten-year-old daughter, Sally, to brain cancer.  After her death, they plan to sell their Mississippi farm and to move to Nebraska.  Before selling, to help recover from their daughter’s death; they take a short vacation in February to Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming.  At the same time, at Yellowstone, three cousins from the Johanson family reunion fall into a river partially fed by hot springs.  Two get right out but the third, Sarah, hits her head and floats away on her back downstream.

The Grahams rescue her and discover she has complete amnesia so, they kidnap her and take back to Mississippi to replace their dead daughter, Sally.  Yellowstone Park Rangers and Sarah’s family search the Boiling, and Yellowstone Rivers but do not recover a body.  Sarah is eventually declared dead.  In Mississippi, the Grahams inherit significant wealth, move to Nebraska, change their identities through a political bribe and move again to Ventura CA as Sam, Gloria, and Sally Johnson.  Sarah, still with complete amnesia, enters an all-girls private school that specializes in preparing girls for careers in movies and TV.  She starts in 6th grade at Ventura Private School for Girls and graduates seven years later.  During each school year, 6th through 12th, another secret about her identity develops that has to be kept by her parents.  After graduating from VPSG, she earns a BA in Music, Theater, and Dance from Cal State.  She obtains a starring role in the new TV series DETECTIVES LIVE as Detective Elaine Scott.  About to finish her Masters, she has an auto accident on her way home, bumps her head and suddenly vivid memories of her life before she was ten return.  She confronts her “parents,” and they admit to kidnapping her so, she begins to search for her real identity.  She asks, “Who am I? Sarah, Sally, Elaine. Johanson, Graham, Johnson, or Detective Scott.”  She concludes, NO! She’s Yellowstone’s Child!  The Appendix contains a timeline & list of characters.  If you respond by email to this blog, you can buy a copy for $6.00 plus actual shipping cost.

Yellowstone’s Child is on Amazon Kindle @ $3.99 and a Soft Cover Version @ &7.99

Share the Gospel this Christmas by reading my short story “The Memory Tree” to your family. It’s on Kindle.

“The Memory Tree” is a short Christmas story written by Charlie Liebert.  Reading it to your family is an easy and effective way to share the gospel at Christmas dinner or when you tell stories around the tree. It can be read in about 15 minutes. Some readers have used the story as a script to tell the story as a skit or play.

Can a Christmas tree planted, more than 50 years ago, in memory of Ruth and Barry’s grandfather speak to their father, Harry?  Harry’s been bitter for years about the death of his wife Charlotte on Christmas Eve.  Harry’s memory went back to that afternoon 28 years before. Charlotte shouting; “Harry!” as the truck suddenly appeared out of the rain.  The sound of the crash was deafening.  Harry awoke, aware of being wet and some hands on his shoulder.  The awful pain in his back made everything seem fuzzy.  He heard someone say, “This one’s still alive, but the woman’s dead.”

His grandson Barry poked him, and he came back to the present.  Before he continued telling the story, he asked, in his mind: “How could a God that loves us let Charlotte die?”  He’d never gotten an answer he could accept.

He continued: “Why did one tree have to die for the other to live?” He asked the children, unsure himself of the answer.  All the bitterness of the years came back suddenly, and he felt tears well up in his eyes.

“That’s what Charlotte said, ‘He had to die to give us life,'” he almost shouted.  He understood that the tree had a message for him all along.  All these years he hadn’t seen it.  Jesus had to die so we could live.  We couldn’t sacrifice ourselves, we weren’t worthy, but He was worthy to pay our debt.  Now it was clear, Jesus had died to give Harry life.  “O Lord how could I have been so blind!!  I need you, Jesus,” he thought.

Author’s Note: Pause, if necessary to clarify the Gospel.[

Ten years later Harry lay on the bed overlooking the backyard.  The tree was now old like him and ready to die.  The last ten years had been kind to him, and he had many chances to share Jesus.  But now the end was almost here.  It looked like another winter storm.  In the darkening sky, the wind blew strong.  Just as Harry breathed out his last breath, the wind picked up and the memory tree cracked at the base and fell into the Slazer’s yard.

Richard Slazer was reading in John when he heard the tree fall.  “Verily, verily, I say unto you, except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abides alone; but if it dies, it brings forth much fruit.”  Richard got up from his chair and went out into the yard to look at the fallen tree.  As he looked at the base where it had cracked and broken, he noticed a tiny branch poking its head up through the soil next to the broken stump. Perhaps a new tree will grow in its place, he thought, as he hurried in to escape the coming storm.

Two Approaches to Teach Your Children Biblical Truth

Now that my third book in Christian Apologetics is launched I’ve decided my next project will deal with Christian Education.  The tentative titles are: My Christian Children’s Education, What Should I Do?  Addressing Christian Parent’s Dilemma of How to Educate Their Children.  Today, from my draft, I’ve included two approaches to teach your children Biblical truth.  Children of believing parents are responsible for instructing them from birth in God’s Truth and Word.  The first is an illustration of the power of God’s Word.  The second a “how to” lesson from one of my mentors that can be very effective teaching method.

One of my responsibilities early in my Christian life at Mitchel Road Presbyterian Church in Greenville, SC was teaching the high school class. On Sunday, the lesson was on Jesus teaching about building your house on the rock or the sand from Matthew 7:24–27

The materials included little, fold-up, paper houses and pages with pictures of sand and rock. Although I thought this was poorly prepared teaching, never the less I taught it faithfully. I even told Terry (my wife and helpmate) on the ride home that it I thought it was a stupid lesson. Years later, 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 thinking to myself “That stupid lesson.” He said:  “Well, that lesson changed my life!” Lesson learned! Never sell short God’s ability to use weak vessels to carry out his will. And don’t trust your judgment regarding what God can do when you are faithful.

REMEMBER BOTH  1) There is no “stupid” in God’s vocabulary and 2) God’s Word has transforming power.

A great idea I got from one of my mentors was his daily review of TV newscasts with his children.  In the early evening, his children would be sent to do homework, and he would watch and videotape the news of the day.  He would pick out several stories and note the times on the tape.  The four children, ages 10 to 16 would come down for the family time each night about 7:00.  They would spend about 20 minutes reading Scripture and prayer.  Then he would play one of the stories from the tape and ask each child what Gods Word said about the content of the news report.  This interaction with the current news was a great learning time both because of his instruction but also the peer-to-peer communication between the four children.  He often created contention by asking “loaded” questions to get them to think about real spiritual issues.  For example, several of the children were doing a summer project reading “Les Misérables,” He asked: “Is it OK to steal bread if you are starving?” This question resulted in six days of lively evening discussions!   He shared one particular video news case with me.  The story was a home invasion where the homeowner shot and killed the intruder.  They all got into a lively discussion that lasted more than 2 hours.  The question they debated became: “When and if is it justifiable to take another person’s life.”  Years later the then 12-year-old would tell his father that story was a life-changing discussion because he realized for the first time how precious God views every human life.
