Carl's Talks

Most Asked Questions

This session gives answers to those puzzling questions about Genesis and science. Many of these might be questions you are hesitant to ask for fear that some may doubt your faith. There are answers – Reasons for Hope* is a good place to look for them!

Evolution Mythbusting

As an outreach to seekers or to those who are convinced evolution is true, this talk is made up of short video clips of interviews with mainstream secular scientists who are questioning the basic tenants of evolution. The purpose is not to answer all the questions, but to put cracks …

The Young Earth

Is the age of the earth just an interpretation issue or is it a presupposition issue? Can we trust the Bible literally or do we have to look to modern science to help us figure out what the Bible says? Do we have to accept atheistic scientific interpretations as truth …

How Do I Know the Bible is True?

This title is not “How Can I Prove the Bible Is True.”  Everyone starts out with a belief system, and proof of that believe system is always ‘in the eye of the beholder.’ Are there good reasons to be confident in the scriptures or do we just have blind faith? …

Genesis, the Key to Abundant Living

There are way too many Christians struggling with sin, just holding on till Jesus comes and finally gives us eternal life. Jesus said He came not only to give us life, but abundant life. The book of Genesis is the key to understand this often missed aspect of our salvation. …

Dueling Worldviews

How can so many sincere people have such diametrically opposing views about how to make this world a better place. By contrasting the basic starting beliefs of a Biblical Worldview with the starting beliefs of Secular Humanism, we’ll begin to see how these contrasting views will flesh out in the …

Creation Scene Investigation

This presentation is designed to clearly explain the difference between observational science and historical science. Many believe that evolution is scientific and based on facts, and that a biblical view of origins is just a religious idea based on faith. This talk will show that what we observe confirms the …

The Struggle is Real: Reaching a Questioning World

Why is it increasingly difficult to reach the younger generation? Why is the church in America experiencing at least a 70% casualty rate among our youth? Where are the millennials? What’s going to happen with their kids? This talk explains how the belief in billions of years and evolution has undermined …

Dinosaurs and the Great Deception

The whole family will enjoy this talk as we answer the questions: “Does the Bible really talk about dinosaurs?” “Did dinosaurs really live millions of years ago or did God create them on day 6 with the rest of the animals?” “Wouldn’t Adam have been afraid of the dinosaurs?” “How …

Genesis – Truth or Trash?

Our nation is more divided today than we have ever been since the Civil War. The dividing issue is “Where do we find truth – in ourselves or God’s Word?”. Billions of years and evolution has so eroded the authority of scripture in our culture that even much of the …

Don’t Myth the Boat!

Many Christians just assume billions of years of evolution is “science”, but it’s unobserved, untested not repeatable theory. They don’t realize that this is the atheist’s belief of how everything got here purely by natural means, without God. If man’s view of history is true, the Genesis account of creation, …

Does Jesus Need a Consultant?

Psalm 23  1  The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. 2  He makes me lie down in green pastures.  He leads me beside still waters. 3  He restores my soul.  He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. 4 Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; …

Monkeys, Typewriters and Language, What Do They Show?

I remember as a young man being told that if you put a typewriter in a cage with a bunch monkeys and give them enough time they’d ultimately reproduce the works of William Shakespeare. I didn’t know until recently that this argument was attributed to English biologist Thomas Huxley, better …

Where Were You When?

Where Were You When? 5  I remember the days of old; I meditate on all that you have done;  I ponder the work of your hands.  6  I stretch out my hands to you; my soul thirst for you like a parched land.  Selah {Psalm 143:5, 6} It’s hard to …

How to Block a Slam Dunk – Part 3

This is the last in a three part series where we’re addressing an article written by Paul Braterman entitled, “How to slam dunk creationists when it comes to the theory of evolution” which was published in “The Conversations” on August 2, 2017.

How to Block a Slam Dunk – Part 2

In this series we’re addressing the article entitled, “How to slam dunk creationists when it comes to the theory of evolution” that Paul Braterman wrote in “The Conversations” on August 2, 2017.

How to Block a  “Slam Dunk”!  Part 1

And the hits just keep on coming!  To those who tell me that people aren’t interested in the origin’s debate, you’re not looking very hard.  The attacks are all around us. Prior to becoming a Christian I loved basketball, it was my god for a long time.  If I had …

Giant Fresh Water Squid, Oh My!

Hey Everyone, Did you see the headlines on the latest find on the shores of Lake Michigan?  Take a look if you missed it: Wow!  Can you believe that they actually found a 21 foot-long freshwater squid on the shores of Good Harbor Bay?  Unbelievable!  How in the world did …

Bible Proven Wrong, AGAIN???

Did you read the front-page headlines on Yahoo news recently? If you didn’t,  Bible believing Christian, you should be afraid, you should be very afraid.  And that’s because the Bible has been proven wrong, again! Christians what in the world are we doing?  How is it that we’ve been so …

The Old “C” Word

I hope you read Juan’s article on “The New “F” Word!” (Read Here!) because it’s really powerful.  Interestingly enough, the weekend after I read the article I had my own encounter with someone who called me the old “C” word!  Hang on, I’ll tell you about it.  

The New “F” Word

A few days ago, someone threw an “F-bomb” at me. Well, not exactly. It wasn’t the traditional “F” word, but rather a new one (at least new to me). I was accused, quite condescendingly I may add, of being a Fundamentalist.

Fixing Myself

Philippians 1:6–And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ. Recently a friend of mine posted the image above on their Facebook page. When I read it, I understood what it was saying, …

Where were you on May 15, 1987?

Psalm 103:2-5 Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits, who forgives all your iniquity, who heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit, who crowns you with steadfast love and mercy, who satisfies you with good so that your youth is renewed …

Enough is Enough with Horus Already!

Not very long ago I was challenged on an issue that has come up a few times over the years.  This time it was different because the same challenge came in from multiple sources at almost the same time. In the past I’d dealt with it superficially and wasn’t that …

Boys vs. Men

Boys vs. Men, can you tell the difference?  Let me share something that was shared with me explaining the difference.

The Million Dollar Question!

Forgive me for dealing with something that I PRAY everyone who reads this already has the answer to. We have dealt with this question in the past in an article entitled “Which came first? The chicken or the egg?”  but, to reinforce WHY you should have an answer to this …

Update 2017

Happy New Year Everyone! Please allow me to say a huge “Thank You!” to everyone for 2016.  It was by far our busiest and most successful year in ministry since we started. 

Life Lessons From the Road! Keys

Hey everyone, we sure hope that we can encourage you by sharing lessons we’ve learned on our travels.  It’s our desire that our lesson’s will give you idea’s on how to use your experiences to teach those the Lord has put in your sphere of influence. 

Life Lessons From the Road!

I’ll never forget one of my first ministry trips to Japan.  Most of you know that I love Japan.  I lived there for over 4 years while in the Air Force and met my wife there.  I’d move back tomorrow if I could afford to take the whole family.  But, …
