Among the many controversial passages of the opening chapters of Genesis, the second verse of the first chapter stands out as a particularly provocative one. What does the phrasing “the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep” allude to? Is it a straightforward, literal remark, or is it to be taken as a hint of something deeper?
The fact that we see design throughout life shouldn’t surprise us if we realize that there is a designer behind it all. This universe is no accident, nor is the life that resides in it. Design is evident, and with that we have a first and compelling argument for the existence of a transcendent creator God. The way Genesis presents this God also appears to preemptively oppose the coming false interpretations of His being and creation. Continue reading “Compartmentalizing Genesis”
For some, belief comes easy. Others however – much like who I was at the start of my walk with God – require a booster of tangible evidence to jump start their walk down the path of righteousness. For those who lie somewhere in between, comfort can be found in the clear declaration of design seen across our universe.
As human beings, we go through life with a desire – a yearning even – for something tangible, something solid upon which to anchor our positions, and worldviews are born from this search…
Do you have a defense for your faith? Could you give a reason for your belief to those who don’t share it, indeed those who may be viciously opposed to it? Now, whether you possess such a defense or remain unprepared to offer an explanation for your faith, one more consideration remains…
Now, as with so much else, it has become fashionable over the years to reject the Christian faith. While some reject it wholesale – dismissing the belief system as nothing more than a useless emotion-fueled vestige of yesteryear – others however take a more measured stance concerning it, and in many cases, do more damage than those who simply abandon religion.
“And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.” Just as God did so then, blowing the dark away with warm, revealing illumination, so too was what He did in me several years ago now.
To be clear, I’m certain that most educators do not possess sinister ambitions in regard to their pupils, nor do they have much choice in what they teach or how they teach it. That duty tends to lie in the hands of those above them, controlled by various boards and councils and governmental bodies.
“The Official Art of Remnants of Eden” was just awarded its first 5-Star Editorial Review!
Reviewed by Fiona Ingram
“I have not read Remnants of Eden by D.S. Causey, yet the art depicted in The Official Art of Remnants of Eden is so riveting, so descriptive, and so thought provoking that I immediately wanted to read the book itself and delve further into the author’s quest for answers to questions that man has sought to answer for millennia. Is creation the work of a divine intelligence or a cosmic accident? How could matter emanate from darkness? Are we attempting through science and medicine to recreate ourselves as gods? Are we pushing the limits of humanity with biotechnology and nano robotics, transcending creation? Can faith and science co-exist? Cosmology, archaeology and geology are represented as three blind crows, deluding each other as they squawk their findings…
The images are finely drawn, sometimes simple, yet some filled with deep symbolism and small details that the reader might miss at first glance. Each image is accompanied by an extract from Remnants of Eden which outlines the author’s visual statement. Some images are sepia tone, some full color, some a mix, but all are unbelievably powerful and thought provoking. The images of the animals and birds in a primordial world are absolutely fascinating and one is awed by the grandeur and majesty that is creation, and how the first humans must have felt when confronted by an untouched Earth.
The author speaks of constructing the art like so: “One of my first steps towards completing the book was designing the art in such a way that it made sense on one level, yet also stoked the imagination on another, all the while making sense both to me and ultimately others.” He has certainly achieved this goal. The early images show the development through to the finished product, incorporating biology, history, mythology and cultural representations. I very much enjoyed the sketches of dinosaurs. Strong biblical references throughout show the reader the author’s leanings but this does not intrude upon or detract from these visual gems. I would encourage readers of Remnants of Eden to pick up this book of images and read the two together; the latter definitely would enhance the reading.”

Demographics unmistakably demonstrate that the newest generation is by and large rejecting belief in favor of materialistic interpretations. For others, indifference is the default option. This is an utter shame, responsible not only by those actively leading that generation away from the truth, but also by those believers who passively allow it to go on unchallenged!
