Great Stuff From Tom Cantor

The following is excerpted from Tom Cantor's delightful booklet "How a Jew Became a Scientific Creationist."

(Read the full text here)

"Being a creationist is both intellect and soul liberating, because Creation reveals the faithfulness of the Creator. For example, the human body is the work of a faithful Creator. The intricate layout of all of the blood vessels with each one attached to its correct terminus, all working together for the overall function of transporting nutrients, wastes and oxygen to and from cells, shows the work of a faithful Creator. The ear drum receiving tonal sound waves and moving less than the diameter of an atom and then transferring those movements to 3 bones, which in turn go through a transducer, converting movement into electrical signals that are interpreted by the brain as different tones, shows the work of a faithful Creator. The interdependency of plant and animal as the plant both uses our exhaled carbon dioxide and produces the oxygen we need, shows the work of a faithful Creator. These are but a very few of the many parts of the Creation that all display the work of a faithful Creator. Allowing the Creation to speak of the Creator’s faithfulness is an encouragement to call on that Creator for the greatest need we have — which is to be saved from the penalty of having sinned against the sinless, Holy Creator. The Bible clearly identifies who the Creator is."

Colossians 1:13-17
“…His dear Son: In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins: Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or  dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.”

"The Creator is the Lord Jesus Christ. Not only is He the Creator, He is the Savior from sin. He has promised to save everyone who calls on His name for salvation from sin. The Bible encourages needy souls to commit the keeping of our souls to the Lord Jesus Christ as a faithful Creator."
