Introduction to the 30 SECOND Videos
In 30 seconds there is not enough time to do anything other than make an assertion. An assertion without facts to back it up is of no value. Each of the 30 SECOND videos has an associated web page, referenced at the end of the video, that provides facts backing up the assertion(s) made in the video. The links here on our web site take you to that web page. (The 30 SECOND video is at the top of the page.)
But there's more...
The answers to just abut any question you can think of are available online. However, when it come to the Bible and evolution it can be difficult to find those answers. In addition there is A LOT of, what I call slush, on the web. Incorrect information. Distortions of scripture. Bad science. How do you sort the truth (reality) from propaganda and fiction? It can be difficult for those without a science background, for example. On the web pages for each 30 SECOND video, when we can find one, we'll provide a video with more indepth information. Also, at the bottom of the web pages are three links to articles or scientific papers providing more information backing up what the video is saying.
So what we have are layers of information allowing you to go deeper should you choose to do so.
How To Use The 30 SECOND Videos
The 30 SECOND videos are intended to provide a quick presentation of reality. We are making them to use in our evangelism outreaches to quickly answer questions and start a discussion.
You can use the 30 SECOND videos as a daily devotional. Watch a video each day and read the associated web page. You'll find your understanding of scripture, God, and science to be continually growing.
BTW, what is science? Is science the "evil" tool of humanists and atheists who try to lead people away from Jesus Christ and the truth of scripture? No! The word science means "knowledge as opposed to ignorance." Science is a tool used to gain knowledge. Science is a tool that reveals the awesomeness, beauty, and magnificence of God';s creation.
You can use the 30 SECOND videos in Sunday school classes and Bible studies to introduce a topic and start a discussion.
You can use the 30 SECOND videos in homeschooling. Pick a video (or have the student pick a video), and have the student research the subject presented in the video. Not only will they learn about that subject, they'll also learn how to do the research to debunk the false science and false Bible teaching that is all over the web.
You can use the 30 SECOND videos to answer questions from family, friends or co-workers. If a question about science or the Bible comes up, refer them to a 30 SECOND video. BTW, as the number of videos grow we will be providing more ways to find the appropriate video. Also, this web site already has extensive directories to online videos made by other ministries.
You can use the 30 SECOND videos to learn more about God's creation and how we know truth and reality both Biblically and scientfically. Watch several videos that catch your interest. Or go to YouTube and let it automatically play through the entire playlist. You'll learn a lot about God's creation.
THE GOOD NEWS
What makes this good news is the bad news about you:
For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. - Romans 3:23
Sin means breaking the law. In this case God's law. This is bad news because perfection is required by God. Lawbreakers must pay the just penalty for breaking the law. That penalty is the lake of fire (the second death).
All liars, their part will be in the lake that burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death. - Revelation 21:8
Have you ever told a lie? Have you ever taken something that does not belong to you, no matter how small? Have you ever looked at another person with lust? In Matthew 5 Jesus said:
You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall not commit adultery’; but I say to you that everyone who looks at a woman with lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart.'
You have broken God's laws. You have sinned. There must be justice, and that means eternity in hell, the lake of fire, the second death. Unless...
Unless there was someone willing to pay that penalty on your behalf. Someone who will take on themselves the consequences you deserve. And there is. There is one person who can and will do that. That person is Jesus Christ. If you trust this is true, and repent (turn away from disobeying God), Jesus' death is applied to your account and you are freed from the penalty of sin to be with God forever.
