We bring you a thrilling essay written by Ken Ham (ol’ Hambo) — the Australian entrepreneur who has become the ayatollah of Appalachia, famed for his creationist ministry, Answers in Genesis (AIG) and for the mind-boggling Creation Museum.
Ol’ Hambo’s newest article is titled Opportunity of a Lifetime. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us, and Hambo’s links, scripture quotes, and references omitted:
About 4,300 years ago, eight people experienced the incredible event of their lifetime as they boarded Noah’s Ark.
Yes, and if you believe that, you believe that all the millions of other people in the world were killed, along with their children. Also extinguished were millions of puppies, songbirds, etc. It’s a wonderful story! Then Hambo says:
While the situation is quite different today, you will have (over the next two years) an opportunity of a lifetime: getting a special lifetime boarding pass for you and your family (or grandparents and their grandchildren) for what I believe will be one of the greatest evangelistic outreaches of our time — the Ark Encounter, with a full-size Noah’s Ark.
Don’t be left behind. Get a boarding pass now! Let’s read on:
In Noah’s day, the whole world, except Noah and his family, rejected the truth of God’s Word: [scripture passage]. Even though we see great wickedness all around us today, thankfully there are many people who have not rejected the truth of God’s Word. And many of them are burdened to share the saving gospel with their families, friends, and others. In the book of 2 Peter, we are warned that there is another global judgment to come. Not by water this time, as it was 4,300 years ago, but by fire:[scripture quote].
Wow — the righteousness of Hambo and his drooling followers is all that’s keeping the world from being destroyed again! He continues:
Answers in Genesis is building a colossal, life-size Noah’s Ark out of wood, with exciting animatronics and walk-through exhibits, scheduled to open in the late summer of 2016. … For all those who visit the Ark Encounter’s life-size Ark, they will have an encounter with this biblical vessel and also encounter God’s Word. Our prayer is that our guests will have an eternity-changing encounter with the Lord Jesus — our Ark of salvation!
If you visit Hambo’s Ark, you will have an encounter! Aren’t you excited? Here’s more:
Until the Ark Encounter is officially opened in 2016, AiG is offering a variety of lifetime boarding passes. … I truly believe that a lifetime boarding pass to the Ark and the Creation Museum is one of the greatest opportunities you will ever have to impact so many lives for the Lord Jesus Christ. Meanwhile, you will be helping fund this amazing outreach!
Ol’ Hambo “truly believes” that a lifetime boarding pass to the Ark will be “one of the greatest opportunities you will ever have.” Moving along:
Don’t miss out on this offer of a lifetime. It’s one of the greatest investments you could make in this time of history.
Skipping over a lot more of the same, he concludes with this:
I do urge you to consider becoming a boarding-pass member of the Ark Encounter (and Creation Museum) to help you be a Noah-like “preacher of righteousness” for your children and other loved ones in today’s challenging world.
