Over at Answers in Genesis (AIG), they’re still babbling about the projected opening date for their “life size replica” of Noah’s Ark. They have a new post from Ken Ham (ol’ Hambo), the Australian entrepreneur who has become the ayatollah of Appalachia. He’s famed for his creationist ministry, Answers in Genesis (AIG) and for the mind-boggling Creation Museum.
This one is titled Ark Encounter Opening Day Announced This Morning. There’s not much news in it, but a few of ol’ Hambo’s remarks are worth mentioning. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us:
I truly believe that this project will be one of the greatest Christian evangelistic outreaches of our day. Ever since Satan’s first attack in the Garden of Eden as written in Genesis 3:1 (“Did God really say . . . ?”), our adversary has been attacking the Word of God and working to shake the foundation of the Christian faith.
Hambo is fighting the devil himself! Isn’t that amazing? He tells us:
I believe that in our Western culture, we are seeing atheistic evolution and the idea of millions of years being the primary means that the adversary is using to undermine the authority of the Word of God, and to all ages.
Get that? The theory of evolution — and the godless science that supports it — is the devil’s “primary means” of opposing God. Let’s read on:
At Answers in Genesis and the coming Ark Encounter attraction, we want to equip Christians and non-Christians to understand that God’s Word is true, that Noah really did build a huge Ark, that the animals really could have fit on board, and that the global Flood really happened as an outpouring of God’s judgment on a wicked generation.
That noble effort is certainly worthy of tax support from the state of Kentucky! Only the devil and his followers would think otherwise. Hambo continues:
At the same time, Noah’s Ark is also a picture of God’s mercy and salvation. God had Noah build an Ark of salvation — and those eight people who went through the one door were saved from the waters of the Flood.
Yes — mercy. As for all the other people on the planet, including newborn babies, cute little puppy dogs, butterflies, songbirds, and the rest — no mercy for them! They all deserved death by drowning. Here’s more:
We want people to know that God has provided an Ark of salvation for us, too — the Lord Jesus Christ. He is the only door by which anyone can enter this Ark of salvation. One day each one of us will stand before our Creator for the final judgment! We are burdened to see as many people as possible go through the “door” of salvation.
Perfectly reasonable! Okay, that’s enough. Now you understand what motivates ol’ Hambo. It’s a worthy cause, and it certainly deserves your support.
