The Glory of God


To fight the good fight at every level possible, that the Gospel would prevail, God would be glorified, the Truth of God would be made known, and the Lamb of God would receive the full reward of His suffering. That in all things, God's name would be great before the nations. 

“Which commandment is the most important of all?” Jesus answered,

“The most important is, ‘Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ The second is this: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.”  
Mark 12

The Salvation of Man   

That men and women, young people, boys and girls would come to a saving knowledge of the glory, majesty, and the love of God in Christ Jesus. That believers would be encouraged to serve. That the Gospel would prevail. 

To Give Light to Those Who
Sit in Darkness
   

"If sinners be damned, at least let them leap to Hell over our dead bodies. And if they perish, let them perish with our arms wrapped about their knees, imploring them to stay. If Hell must be filled, let it be filled in the teeth of our exertions, and let not one go unwarned and unprayed for.”   Charles H. Spurgeon

The Weapons of our Warfare   

1.  The Word of God,  
2.  Intercessory Prayer,
3.  The Proclamation of the Gospel,
4.  Sacrificial Love. 

The battle is the Lord's. The task He has assigned to us begins with our heart, yours and mine; because, whoever holds high ground in our heart, the King, or ourselves, determines our faithfulness and effectiveness in the fight.

Prayer is our Greatest WeaponUse it!

The first battle is within ourselves in the secret place, for our purity. Lose this one, and you're putting armor on a dead man. Therefore, be strong in Christ Jesus and of good courage!  Examine yourself, then put on the whole armor of God from  Ephesians 6:10-18.

Rejoice!

"If by excessive labor, we die before reaching the average age of man, worn out in the Master's service, then glory be to God. We shall have so much less of earth, and so much more of Heaven!"  C.H. Spurgeon 

Our Goal 

Engagement and Victory

Our goal is to engage specific areas of this conflict, wherever Satan is the most active, pulling down every evil stronghold and lofty thing raised up against the knowledge of God.

Some of those areas extend well beyond section  501(c)(3) guidelines,  therefore, we refuse to be under those restrictions.

Satan is certainly not. Nor, is Christ Jesus.

Therefore, we have many more options open and available for engagement and victory.

Jesus is LORD, not Caesar

Engagement of evil demands no IRS oversight. No bit in our mouth. The Devil is Real! Satan has been at work in our nation under the cover of complete silence and anonymity for far too many years.  No more.  The Devil is Real and at work in every area of America life. 

For that reason, we will not, and do not accept donations, offerings, honorariums. We receive no advertising revenue, have nothing to sell. Freely we have received by God's grace, freely we give. A profound privilege beyond words.


Humble, easy, not elaborate and complex, straightforward, as it was meant to be. Hopefully, more 1st century, than 21st.

Gospel Proclamation  

The Gospel is the sine qua non of God's redemptive work. Our redemption came at a high price, God's Son on a cross. That's high! God considers it worthy to be the focal point of our lives. And if it is not, then who are we really following? And if it is not, who are we kidding by not doing what Jesus specifically said to do? 

His Last Words to Us

And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen.   Matthew 28:18-20

Christ the Glory of God 
“He is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature, and he upholds the universe by the word of his power. After making purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high.”  Hebrews 1:3


Emmanuel, God with Us.

Ἐμμανουήλ, Immanuel, God with us, equivalent to savior. A name given to Christ by Matthew, Matthew 1:23, after Isaiah 7:14. According to the orthodox interpretation the name denotes and has reference to the personal union of the human nature and the divine nature in Christ. The name appears twice in the book of Isaiah 7:14, 8:8, once in Matthew 1:23 translated as Emmanuel, God with us.   Thayer's Greek Lexicon 

Our Creator Jesus Christ, God incarnate, was among us for 33 years. History clearly records His remarkable life, death, and resurrection. Enough evidence/documentation exists that you can receive an earned PhD. on the subject.

Pro Choice?

Suppression, denial, outright rejection of the historical record, is and has always been an option, a Choice, for atheists and agnostics.

Killing 60,000,000 Children, Suppressing Truth, Denial of America's Christian Heritage, Desecration of The Sanctity of Life, Marriage, Home, Gender, Faith in God and Country, Profaning/Persecuting Christian Churches, Promoting Islam, Supporting Socialist Agendas, Anarchy, Antifa is all in play for the godless who hate America, and hate the Lord our God.

One minute after they die, a door on eternity will open, and they'll be gripped by sheer panic and terror as the Truth will then be known.  

Hell is Real and Forever. Those who reject God's Gift of Eternal Life at the Expense of His Son, will regret it for all eternity.   

Heaven is Real and Forever. All who accept God's Gift of Eternal Life, our last act of our faith will be to believe that the person who said "You will be with Me"  is good for His Word.



Our position is clear.  We hold that the existence of the Biblical God is a stark objective reality, rationally and factually provable beyond a reasonable doubt.

We hold that Today is the day of Your Salvation. You cannot count on tomorrow.  Please don't put it off!  Heaven and Hell are Real.

Believe on The Lord Jesus Christ and you will be saved, you and your household.   Acts 16:31



The Bible says: “And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to Him must believe that He exists and that He rewards those who earnestly seek Him.” Hebrews 11:6
 

If God so desired, He could simply appear to every individual personally, spend the day, do a couple of miracles, take them to Heaven for a personal guided tour. But if He did that, there would be no need for faith. God requires Faith.

“Then Jesus told him, ‘Because you have seen me, you have believed; blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed’” John 20:29

God desires faith, trust, confidence as any loving parent does of their child, but that is not to say Conclusive Evidence does not exist. There is more than anyone needs, the problem is not a lack of evidence, but our heart.

What do I mean by the problem is our heart? Let me make it simple and straightforward: 



When you don't want to do something, any excuse, and I mean any excuse, will work. 
Is it any wonder, what men and women profess to be true, is what they prefer to be true? 



“The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of His hands. Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they display knowledge. There is no speech or language where their voice is not heard. Their voice goes out into all the earth, their words to the ends of the world”   Psalm 19:1-4.

An exceptional message from Ravi Zacharias who we support, at a diverse ecumenical conference we do not support. 

 Hubble Ultra Deep Field

This tiny spot of the universe, speckled with 10,000 or so galaxies, is called the Hubble Ultra Deep Field. The angle of view is so small, its like holding a dime at arm’s length looking up at the night sky. The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of His hands. Psalm 19:1    

The discoveries of the last 30 years are now insurmountable for the skeptical materialist. The only escape for an atheist or agnostic today is to suppress and reject the obvious truth.  

 







God alone is Holy, with a Pure, Absolute, Incomprehensible, Infinite Holiness that is His alone! He lives in unapproachable light, in majestic Holiness, Purity and Glory that knows no bounds. 

We created the problem.

We were created for fellowship with God, but, we have all sinned and placed ourselves under His righteous judgment. God’s justice requires payment for sin. That payment is separation from God in the blackness, darkness, and torment of Hell for all eternity, without hope.

Jesus solved the problem.

But God, in His love for us gave His Son as that payment for our sin. Unto us a child was born. Unto us a Son was given, as a sacrificial lamb to die, that we may live. 

God now commands that all mankind repent of our sin and place our faith in His Son. When we repent and place our full faith (trust) in Jesus Christ alone, we're declared by God to be Not Guilty! Forgiven, washed clean! Given a new heart and mind to live a new life. 

If indeed, God performs a miracle in your life and saves you, the proof will be the transformation of your whole life. You’ll begin to love things you once ignored or even hated, and find yourself  beginning to hate some of the things you loved.

You'll know that you are now His child, His personal work of love and kindness. By grace, there will be progress toward Christ likeness.

For God so loved the world, that he gave His only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world may be saved through Him.  
John 3:16-17

Our priority is to stand as an anvil well beaten by honoring God, taking every thought captive to Christ in this battle, that He may be glorified in all and there may be genuine repentance and revival; God's forgiveness and restoration, and the healing of our land.

Warning: The opposition is real! The battle is hot! It's not for the wishy washy, or faint at heart. 

Prayer is our Greatest WeaponUse it!

That being said, as Socrates at his trial: "The unexamined life is not worth living." Nor, is a life of pristine orthodox theology worth living,  without works.   James 2

So, are you a Harvester for God, or are you a Gardner for God?  Greg Koukl, Stand To Reason can help you determine your gift. Either way, you'll be on Solid Ground.   Read More...

Orthodox Theology 

We're not a unique ministry, nor, are we another Creation vs. Evolution ministry.

We defend the authority and inerrancy of Scripture from a non-denominational position utilizing the finest apologetic resources from mainline orthodox evangelical seminaries, science based Christian ministries from conservative evangelical theologians, biblical scholars, seminarians and pastors who mainly hold a dispensational view of scripture. 

The website Monergism.com is a rich resource for Reformed theological books and materials that we have used for many years and highly recommend. They may be "the largest online resource for Christianity from a Reformed perspective in the world."  I appreciate their depth of  commitment to the Puritans and early church fathers. You'll find Covenant Reformed and Dispensational resources there.


We focus mainly on four areas of conflict: 1.) theological, 2.) scientific, 3.) political, 4.) historical; wherever Satan is the most active in these four areas. We are simply a database, with the links to the finest primary sources/resources we know of. 

That doesn't mean everyone referenced is orthodox in all areas, as we may not be. However, most do not posit that caveat. So beware of how you explore the links.  

We endorse only the positions we post. Bill Craig's Ontological Argument above is not an endorsement of his systematic theology. We are young earth, he is not.

And so it is, with some of our resources. You need to use discernment, along with wisdom, understanding, common sense and good judgment with everyone; that includes us. Just like the noble Bereans in Acts 17, be smart.  Always check your Bible, it's inerrant. We certainly are not.

Again, so what's our purpose?

To show our love for the Lord our God with all our heart, and with all our soul, and with all our mind, and with all our strength by loving our neighbors as ourselves by sharing the Good News of the Gospel, and helping them to stand as an anvil well beaten for Christ Jesus.

This is my Father's world.

For thus saith the Lord that created the heavens, God Himself that formed the earth and made it—He hath established it, He created it not in vain, He formed it to be inhabited: “I am the Lord, and there is none else.  Isaiah 45

Chemistry Glorifies God the Creator 
God’s Design for Bioluminescence
Honeybees Navigate by Polarized Light 



"When we think of evidence for God, we often consider examples of design in biology (Job 40) or even astronomy (Genesis 1:14–17; Psalm 19:1; Isaiah 40:22). And well we should, for our Creator has made himself quite evident in this way, and has even said so (Romans 1:20; Colossians 1:16)."  AIG





WE AFFIRM that the Bible is God’s Word His written revelation to all mankind in sixty six books given by the Holy Spirit through dual authorship and constitutes the plenary Word of God.

WE AFFIRM that Scripture in its entirety is verbally inspired, inerrant, infallible, sufficient, complete, and determinative in the original autographs, and free from all deceit, falsehood, or misunderstanding. As such,  the Scriptures constitute the only infallible rule of faith and practice.

WE AFFIRM that inspiration, though not conferring omniscience, guaranteed true and trustworthy utterance on all matters of which the Biblical authors were moved by the Holy Spirit to speak and to write.

WE AFFIRM that the biblical record of events, discourses and sayings, through the variety of appropriate literary forms, corresponds inerrantly to historical fact, affirming our literal, grammatical, historical interpretation of Scripture.

WE AFFIRM that since God is the author of all truth, then all truth both biblical and extrabiblical is consistent and coheres. Therefore, the Bible speaks truth when it touches on matters pertaining to nature, creation, history, or anything else.

WE AFFIRM that in some of the cases extrabiblical data has value for clarifying what Scripture teaches, and prompting greater accuracy of our interpretation.

WE AFFIRM that the days of creation in Genesis are six consecutive, literal days. That the entire universe including the earth, sun, moon, stars, plants, animals, and Adam and Eve were created in those six (approx. 24 hour) days by God's Son, Jesus, Second Person of The Trinity.

WE AFFIRM that the Genesis 5 and 11 genealogies are chronological, giving a creation date 6,000  to 8,000 years ago. We acknowledge disagreements whether textual omissions may have occurred. 

WE AFFIRM that all people on this planet are descendants of Adam and Eve and bear equally the image of God. Thereby, affirming, there is only one race of human beings, the Mitochondrial Eve race. Variations of people groups is simply the subsequent result of the dispersion at the Tower of Babel into different regions.

WE AFFIRM that the Bible warrants the need for apologetics. Therefore, we aim to defend the Christian faith against all challenges leveled by unbelievers, there by vindicating the Christian philosophy of life against all autonomous philosophies. 



The Glory of God the Lostness of Man and the Gospel of Christ, David Platt

Our Position is one of love and gratitude for the Son of God loving us while we were yet sinners, and then dying for us! 

Bruce Shelley framed it this way:

Christianity is the only major religion to have as its central event, the humiliation of its God. 


Statement of Faith

Master's Seminary Statement of Faith has been our theological compass for faith and practice for over 30 years. Want to know what we believe?  Click on it.

Master's Seminary Doctrinal Statement.


We've often been called MacArthurites. You will find GTY.org  a major resource.

Greg Bahnsen was, is, will always be my hero in the faith for his defense of Christ. You'll find Always Ready  is often quoted, so you might as well just go buy it.

We also greatly admire and appreciate Albert Mohler's theological as well as philosophical leadership. Therefore, we have the  Abstract of Principles  along with The Baptist Faith and Message  with a history of Al Mohler's presidency of Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. 

Dr. R. C. Sproul of Ligonier Ministries is still a dear and respected mentor. If you do not receive TABLETALK you should be ashamed of yourself and correct that. 

In the beginning

So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.

And God blessed them. And God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth and subdue it, and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over every living thing that moves on the earth.” And God said, “Behold, I have given you every plant yielding seed that is on the face of all the earth, and every tree with seed in its fruit. You shall have them for food.  And to every beast of the earth and to every bird of the heavens and to everything that creeps on the earth, everything that has the breath of life, I have given every green plant for food.” And it was so.  

And God saw everything that he had made, and behold, it was very good. And there was evening and there was morning, the sixth day.  Genesis 1 

Creation was a succession of monumental, supernatural creative miracles by God, out of nothing visible, other than Himself. Science cannot contribute anything to the understanding of creation since there were no observers, and by definition science can say nothing about the supernatural. Creation cannot be verified by any naturalistic methodologies since creation did not come about by any naturalistic processes and cannot be reproduced or duplicated in any way. God has given us His record of creation in the Scriptures. Jesus, Himself quoted from the Genesis account of creation. We either believe what the Bible clearly says about creation or we don't. Science can confirm or deny that basic fact.  



commitment 

To defend the whole body of truth that Christ, while He was here, confirmed, clarified and died for. That means more than defending theism and creationism. Involved is a defense of all areas Satan is working to destroy. That some are saved, others strengthened to serve, we pray! This battle is the Lord's. Christ has given us many great and powerful weapons.  Prayer is our greatest weapon!  Use it



In his early years, Isaac Watts once complained about hymn singing in church: "To see the dull indifference, the negligent and thoughtless air that sits upon the faces of a whole assembly, while the psalm is upon their lips, might even tempt a charitable observer to suspect the fervency of their inward religion." He had been bemoaning such since his late teens. His father, tired of his complaints, challenged him to write something better. The next week, Isaac presented his first hymn to the church, "Behold the Glories of the Lamb," which received an enthusiastic response. The career of the "Father of English Hymnody" had begun.

"No more let sins and sorrows grow, Nor thorns infest the ground; He comes to make His blessings flow Far as the curse is found, Far as the curse is found, Far as, far as, the curse is found."

 Don & Judi, Chris, Christin, CJ Mosteller
ProLife, Pro Family, Pro Hope in Christ

My wife and I served with World Gospel Crusades, and in church and para-church ministries. We've been married 46 years, with three great Christ-centered children. 

Jesus Christ is my Savior and Lord, the love of my life, the very air that I breathe. Defending the Truth of His Scripture has been my highest honor, greatest joy, and precious privilege beyond words.

Wasn't always that way. When I was young  I thought I was a Christian, but maybe not,  just churchy, knew a lot of the right words and bible verses. If I hadn't met a young woman on staff with CCC― well, I'm just very thankful that I met her, and married her a year later.

Sharing your faith can change your life. No matter how simple your story of how you came to faith in Jesus Christ, it can change the lives of others, for all eternity.


"According to research, many Christians no longer believe that God is the supreme Creator and Ruler of the universe. Such “Christians” believe that everyone is god or that maybe god is simply the realization of one’s human potential. Over half of “Christians” don’t believe the Holy Spirit or Satan is real, and tens of millions of them don’t believe that Jesus is the divine Son of God. Finally, almost half of “Christians” don’t believe the Bible is completely true."  Follow Me:  A Call to Die.  A Call to Live. (p. 77).  Platt, David.

Apologetics begins not with the latest discoveries in support of the scriptural worldview, but confidence that all the treasures of  Wisdom, Knowledge and Truth are hid in Christ Jesus our Lord.

When men reject Christ, their minds and hearts are darkened; they become fools. That rejection has intellectual, emotional and eternal consequences.

Understanding the antithesis that exists, the apologist defends faith in Christ by demonstrating by his words and life the supremacy of the Christian worldview.  

1.  Assuming God’s laws of logic to argue for a godless universe.

2.  Assuming absolute moral standards within a world of chemical reactions.

3.  Assuming the order in the universe came from disorder.

Truth is the opposite of naturalism's lie, which now dominates our landscape. Where do you place ultimate authority? God's Word or man's? Choose God's

How does DYFN decide which issues to defend, and which to leave to others to defend? 


Since we're not a universal resource and well understand our limitations, we do not address technical  issues beyond historically accepted positions. We're simply a link to the principal resources shown on our Directory pages on DYFN.org and Simple Apologetics.org . 

Challenges for 2020: 

1.  The residual noetic effects of the Fall and God's Curse on mankind and all of creation. 

2.  Satan, working feverishly to destroy our nation, and God’s highest creation made in His own image, to deprive God of His due glory. 

3.  That in a perfect world with every good thing provided for life, happiness, and our contentment, that we could sin against God.

4. The desires and lust of a man's flesh, the covetousness and envy of our eyes, and our crippling pride, and duplicitous heart.

5. The world in the lap of the Evil One. Yet, that men must first believe that, before they can ever begin to understand it. 

6.  Man's bent toward self-deception, that drives the foolishness of unbelief and the insanity of the rejection of obvious Truth. 

7.  The Immorality of Neutrality. Men trying to please men, rather than God. Fearing the rejection of man, rather than God.

8.  Pastors unwilling to engage pervasive evil for fear of losing  support of their church board, tax exempt status, their job.

9.  The rise of Evil. The destructive annihilatory behavior of the Democratic party. The probability of increasing demonic activity.

10. The rise of Islam and the inevitable demographic and societal realities for Europe and North America by 2030.

11. The rise of the Cultural Left, the LGBTQ influence, threat to education, and church.

12. The 2020 Election: prevalent fraud, media control, Google's position on the Internet, China's cyber warfare unit.

Our apologetic effort is to secure a place for the Gospel to stand and be heard, that men & women, boys & girls, young people might believe to the glory of God. 

I'm aware that we have briefly touched upon many seemingly extraneous issues. Nevertheless, they are corollaries, if for no other reason than Satan is working desperately to destroy them, simply to deny God the full glory of His Creation.
