So far this month it has been very productive.
We started off with Nicholls State University and the topic was on One Race, One Blood. We were utilizing the information from Answers in Genesis for our materials teaching on genetics and race.
When we asked the students ‘How many races there are?’ we received answers from one to hundreds. So, if I could prove that there was really just one race, would you be interested?
We then went to teaching on genetics, the Human Genome study, and then Scripture that says that there is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male nor female, but that we are all one in Jesus Christ. (Gal.3:28) And that He has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined their pre-appointed times and the boundaries of their dwellings. (Acts 17:26)
If there is really just one race, the human race, is there such a thing as inter-racial marriages? The only thing that separates us is the amount of melanin in our skin, or the shape of our eyelids. So, there is no such thing as inter-racial marriages.
Is it permissible in God’s eyes for two non-Christians to get married? Yes
Is it permissible for two Christians to get married? Yes
Is it permissible for a Christian and a non-Christian to get married? No.
Why? Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness? And what accord has Christ with Belial? Or what part has a believer with an unbeliever? (2 Cor. 6:13-15)
We had many, many interesting conversations with the students, and opened many eyes, challenging their secular worldview with a biblical worldview.
We then had an opportunity to teach on Creation Science at the Lockport Arts and Crafts show at the Bayouside Park. We probably had about 200 people come and visit with us to learn about God’s special creation, the process of fossilization, Noah’s Flood, and Jesus Christ.
To go along with what we were teaching, we were equipping parents to train their children biblically and giving them resources to equip them. Distributed were the booklet What Time Is Purple, the film The Atheists Delusion, and an opportunity to win either a piece of dinosaur coprolite or a fish fossil.
Many pieces of coprolite and fish fossils were given away, courtesy of Kornell Nash from Nash’s Dinosaur Track and Rock Shop in Granby, Massachusetts. Kornell’s dinosaur track quarry is really cool. Dinosaur tracks all over can be seen in the stone quarry.
Seth, Thomas and Jacob wanted to tackle the topic of morality at Nicholls. According to statistics, only 1% of millennials have a biblical worldview, so morality was going to be a tough topic. If there is no moral law giver (God), then there is no moral law, and morality is then subjective, based on personal feelings or emotions. In other words, people do whatever is right in their own eyes.
Hmmm. Something like Judges 17:6 or 21:25?
We went to Southeastern Louisiana University and were met with nitwits, dimwits, homosexuals, skaters, and transvestites who were really not heckling the group of evangelists there, but just yelling and screaming incoherently to try and disrupt.
However, “we know that the law is good if one uses it lawfully, knowing this: that the law is not made for a righteous person, but for the lawless and insubordinate, for the ungodly and for sinners, for the unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers, for fornicators, for sodomites, for kidnappers, for liars, for perjurers, and if there is any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine…” (1 Timothy 1:8-10)
They are the reason we are at the universities.
We also had the Southdown Arts and Crafts Show in Houma, Louisiana. Again, the goal was to teach on Creation Science, fossilization, Noah’s Flood, and proclaiming Jesus Christ.
We had larger than expected crowds. From 8:30 until 3:45, the people just coming and coming. Jared was working the crowd at the show and telling them about us, so they came.
We had to battle the high winds all day. But…. there were no mosquitoes or gnats. Thank you, Lord, for the wind.
Many people were equipped with materials that we gave them to train their children and grandchildren. The gospel of Jesus Christ as proclaimed as often as we could. However, sometimes we had a lot of families where we had three presentations at the same time, and while people were waiting, the gospel was proclaimed to them outside of the booth.
Over 1,200 gospel tracts, books, booklets, videos, were given away at this Southdown Arts and Crafts Show.
We again attended the campus of Nicholls State University and shared the gospel with a lot of students. We were using morality questions as an apologetic topic to get the students to think and then jumped to the meat, the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Many repeat people come by to see what we have for them. Many conversations are continuances from the previous weeks.
Very few are antagonistic, though we do have those type of people. They are the ones that choose to lash out at us, because Jesus Christ is not here for them to attack. They hate God without a reason.
At First Baptist Church, Lockport, we have a monthly food distribution for people in the community. Besides feeding their body, we also feed their soul.
We taught this group about genetics and one race, one blood. A policeman who was there commented that if more people knew about this, then there would be a lot less problems.
From there we participated with First Baptist Church, Golden Meadow, for a community door-to-door evangelism outreach. Matt Chouest, the pastor, led this group to proclaim Jesus Christ unashamedly throughout some of his community. Matt said that his goal to produce the gospel to EVERY person in the tenth ward. Much work needs to be done.
One man came under conviction and started attending church, and submitted his life to Jesus Christ. Praise the Lord.
Please keep us in prayer as we try and proclaim Jesus Christ to as many as we possibly can, while we still have time.
