Youth 110

Mutualism and Symbiosis: Astounding Evidence for Special Creation

Join Dr. Martin as he reveals some of the phenomenal mutualistic and symbiotic relationships between creatures, insects, and plants in God's creation and encourages listeners to use these examples in creation evangelism. He shows that because of specific dependencies on each other, they had to be created at the same time or they would have died! Dr. Martin presents symbiotic relationships such bioluminescence in the angler fish, to the Brazil nut tree, and the Atta ants living in the thorns of the Acacia tree. There is no room for evolution in this exciting talk!

Room 370

The Evolution of a Creationist

This talk includes many of the evidences for creation that the Lord used to bring Dr. Martin from being an agnostic, zen-Buddhist, evolutionist to a young earth creationist. Dr. Martin uses   statistics and current studies to vividly demonstrate how our Christian school kids are following the same downward path into secular humanism that the public school kids are taking and that it is only the homeschoolers who are “stemming the tide,” though they are also sloping off into moderate Christianity instead of staying solidly Biblical. When belief in the Bible’s authority and accuracy is shaken, people lose their trust in it and the culture departs from Biblical principles. This talk will help equip all ages with foundational truths about creation which will enable young people to stand strong against the attacks of evolution and secular humanism in the academic arena and today’s culture.

Room 372

Christian Leadership: The Life of Nehemiah

Through the lives of biblical men and women, Dr. Martin will demonstrate to parents and young people how they can live with a view toward eternity—teaching them the value of one person’s life before the Lord. Having a goal in life, standing alone amidst the increasing opposition of our age, and being a biblical leader in the midst of our changing culture are themes Dr. Martin will cover in this session. A main theme in the book of Nehemiah is to “pray first” which should be the Christian’s first thought in all situations. In addition to Nehemiah, Dr. Martin will also cover leadership principles found in the lives of Shamgar, Esther, and Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego.
