The discovery of a mummified horse (dated using C14 to be 42,000 years old!) has astounded researchers because of its extreme preservation. The significance of the specimen, and evolution vs. creation explanations for the origin and "development" of horses are discussed. (Photo taken from LiveScience.com April 18, 2019)
Dr. Scripture was asked the question, "What is a 'nephesh' creature," and although the word "nephesh" is a commonly occurring term in the Old Testament, and is associated with the life forms God created on days 5 and 6 of creation, he needed to study the term more thoroughly.
In this 3rd program considering Psalm 8, a prayer/song directed to the Creator/Lord, we consider the dramatic difference between the response of a humble heart like David's to the majesty of the One who created him, and that of the arrogant, self reliant and rebellious heart of the unregenerate man. The famous poem written in 1875, "Invictus" by William E Henley, serves as a powerful example of the rebellious human spirit.
As David praises his Creator he is humbled by the fact that such an awesome God has even a thought about him let alone CARES for him. It's an interesting question to ponder--how does a person respond to the Almighty when confronted with His display of power in the heavens? Humbly as did David or defiantly as did the author of the famous poem, Invictus.
Psalm 8 is totally addressed to the Lord (making it a prayer as well as a song), and David's thoughts are directed specifically to the Creator. This is the first of several programs on Psalm 8, a prayer addressed to the Creator.
In this special and entertaining program, "Grandpa" Scripture interviews his grandson, James Scripture about school, birds, donuts and "why the birds are afraid of us."
Dr. Scripture continues the interview with his son, Lt. Benjamin "Luke" Scripture, a navy helicopter pilot. Luke explains the dynamics involved in sensory deprived perception and his "experiences" with UFOs. Are they alien in origin? What does that mean for our understanding of Scripture?
