Already Gone
By Britt Beemer and Answers in Genesis

The George Barna survey states that 90% of church attending children go to public schools. Of that ninety percent -70% of those kids will leave the church the first year after leaving high school. Alarming isn’t it. Answers in Genesis wanted to know WHY.
Answers in Genesis commissioned respected researcher Britt Beemer of America’s Research Group to study this issue and conduct a survey. The first scientific study of its kind reveals startling facts discovered through 20,000 phone calls and detailed surveys of a thousand 20-29 year olds. Here are some of their findings in their book.
At what age did you question the Bible?
Kindergarten – 3rd grade
4th – 6th grade
7th – 9th grade 40%
High School 40%
Early College 10%

Would you say questioning was the beginning of your doubt in the Bible?
Yes – 55.6%
No – 31.1%
I don’t know – 13.3%
Our youth are asking questions like – How do you know the Bible is true? What do you mean by the inspired word of God? Who put the Bible together? Why Christianity, why not Buddhism? What about the races of people? What about the Big Bang? Carbon Dating? Belief that the earth is millions of years old?
They are asking questions and they need answers. The research shows it. This is the main component of why they are leaving the church. They are not taught to trust, answer and defend the Bible.
Asked of the 20 - 29 year olds of those evangelicals who used to attend church regularly but no longer do:
History of church attendance as a child
95% Elementary School and Middle School
59% High School
11% College

At what age did those who no longer believe that all the accounts/stories in the Bible are true and start to doubt? In other words when did they start doubting the accounts in the Bible?
40% Middle School
40% High School
10% College

Did you often attend Sunday School?
61% Attended Sunday School
19% No Sunday School Attendance
Notice that these people as children were spiritually checked out of church even though they were still physically attending church in their middle and high school years.

Sunday Evenings 5pm-6:30pm
January 6, 13, 20, 27 - 2013

Highlighting new evidence revealed at a symposium at Cornell Univ. on "Bio-Info" that Mr. Galloway was invited to attend in 2011.

This series will use selected portions of the 7-Part 700 slide Power Point presentations accessible (HERE).  Plus content from Mr. Galloway's personal interviews of internationally respected scientists who are biblical creationists such as the inventor of the MRI Dr. Damadian, the inventor of the Gene Gun at Cornell University Dr. Sanford, etc.

Our children's beliefs about both MORALITY and CREATION are inseparably connected:
Atheistic Evolution - If no God, then no source of truth, no good or evil, no law, no authority.
Theistic Evolution - If evolution is God’s Way, then “survival of the fittest” is good.

Homosexuality
- If no Adam and Eve, then Adam and Steve must be OK, so kids with 2 Mom's or 2 Dads is considered equal to kids raised with a father and mother.
Promiscuity - If man is an evolved animal, then acting like one must be OK.
Gospel - If the first Adam did not cause the curse of death and suffering in creation, then the second Adam, Jesus, died for nothing.
Future – If Eden is a myth, then God’s promise to restore a New Earth where the lion will again lay down with the lamb is based on a lie.

Creation Evidence will present the following outlines:

Already Gone, Session 1
1. Why the Biblical Creation account in the Bible is relevant not only to our kids, but also to our culture.

2. Show that the Bible is our standard of Truth and the only infallible standard in a cursed world.

3. Prove why evolution is not a fact by using the scientific method to explain the difference between Operational/Observational Science and Historical/Origin Science.

4.Define Worldview - then how confidence in our worldview determines what we believe about the past (Origin Science),
and how confidence in our worldview determines our moral standard (and consequently our behaviors).

Session 5
Radiometric Dating – Optional Session (1 hour) Recommended for 10-12 graders and especially for early college.

Session 6
Did God Create in 6 Literal Days? (45 minutes) by Answers In Genesis
- The Hebrew word for "day" can have a number of different meanings-but in Genesis 1, it can only mean an "ordinary day!"

- The major reason many Christian leaders reject the days of creation as 24-hour days is because of extra-biblical information, not because of the clear teaching of Scripture.

-If the days of Creation in Genesis 1 are long ages, then death, disease, and thorns came before sin.

-Rejecting the days of creation as ordinary days undermines the authority of Scripture.

Session 7
Coming Soon

Apologetics
How to defend Biblical Creation that is absolutely irrefutable.
Unlike so much literature on origins, this series deals with the heart of the issue, showing that the Bible is the bottom-line. The Bible must indeed be what it claims to be: the authoritative Word of God. Otherwise the gospel message itself—of original sin and the need for Jesus Christ—is without foundation.

Session 12
How can we evangelize a secular world? (1/2 hour) on the DVD by Ken Ham from Answers In Genesis

  • The need for a different method of evangelizing in former Christian influenced nations (like American and Britain).
  • People’s need to understand they are lost before they can understand they need to be saved.
  • Western cultures have changed their foundations from being like the Jews in Acts 2, to being like the Greeks in Acts 17 – our methods of evangelism must change accordingly.
  • Most of the church is so secularized in its thinking that people don’t know why evangelism does not work as effectively today as it did generations ago.
  • The history of the world from Genesis, including the account of Creation and the Fall, is essential to explain the gospel to those who don’t have such a foundation in their thinking.


Session 13
Relevance - Already Gone - (1 hour) based on Answers In Genesis Presentation

In this important presentation we will discuss the profound cultural changes taking place in our Western world, as God's Word is rejected and man's fallible ideas are welcomed.

Session 14
4 POWERFUL QUESTIONS TO ASK AN EVOLUTIONIST - (1 hour) based on Mike Riddle's (of Answers In Genesis) DVD.

This presentation will equip you to turn the tables by asking your evolutionist friends four simple - yet powerful questions:

1. Where id the universe's original matter come from?

2. How did life begin?

3. Where are all the supposed transitional fossils between the Precambrian and Cambrian periods?

4. Where did the dinosaurs come from?

Each "power question" is compelling in itself and leads the evolutionist to understand that he is relying on faith and not empirical science. We will demonstrate how the use of these questions to present the gospel and reveal the Truth, that there is a Creator God who made heaven and earth, as recorded in Genesis.
