The Rocks Cry Out
Very, very few people have ever seen a fascinating, visual presentation of the evidence supporting a Biblical creation viewpoint. The Rocks Cry Out creation curriculum provides the perfect tool for you to change this for your church or small group.
This curriculum works equally well as a church class for youth/adults or as a study for home schoolers and small fellowship groups. It is also enjoyable to simply watch with family and friends. If used as a class, a minimum of 45 minutes is needed but it is preferable to have 60 minutes to allow for discussion time. Longer time slots work by simply allow for longer discussions. Leaders will likely need to limit discussion time in order to finish the content each week (total video time varies from 40 – 50 minutes).
This is not just a class on the evidence for creation. The goal of this study is to increase participants trust in the reliability and accuracy of God’s Word. In this way they are far more likely to share their faith with others. Keep guiding the discussion back to this central issue. Each lesson has question breaks and suggested questions following the Opening Segment and Main Teaching. Each DVD follows this general outline:
- The Introduction is basically a “teaser” used to arouse people’s interest. It is best viewed by the class a week before the lesson. The Lesson 1 Introduction should be used to promote the class.
- The Opening Segment always focuses on why this issue matters.
- The Main Teaching deals with some aspect of science or history which confirms the reliability and accuracy of God’s Word. This section is always the longest.
- The Closing Segment answers the issue of why so many people seem blind to, or uninterested in, Biblical truth and the evidence for creation.
- The Skeptic Rebuttal addresses what skeptics say about the evidence supporting a Biblical creation model – and why they are wrong!
Lesson 1: Science Testifies to Creation
The most basic laws of science confirm the absolute fact that there is a creator responsible for creation. Using visual demonstrations of how we can know that neither the universe nor life could have made itself, this lesson reveals how leaving this reality out of our thinking ultimately destroys a culture’s trust in Christianity and blinds people to the truth.
Lesson 2: The Red Record
The Red Record reveals an astounding confirmation of the Biblical account of early earth history – including creation, the entrance of death, the worldwide flood, intriguing references to the post flood ice age, and other details of earth history. This lesson recounts the captivating story of the discovery/translation/preservation of this remarkable, yet little known, Native American document and provides a fascinating confirmation of how the ice age fits into Biblical history.
Lesson 3: Design Testifies to Creation
How can we know if design is the result of natural processes or intelligence? This lesson travels from Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore to the Badland National park and Mt. Rushmore to show how the design of life testifies to God as its designer. We’ll take a closer look at the supposed mechanisms driving evolution (mutations and natural selection) to show the impossibility of these forces driving life upward in complexity.
Lesson 4: Noah’s Flood and Geology
The starting assumption of modern geology is slow processes and lots of time to create the sedimentary rock layers of the Earth. Therefore, modern geologists cannot even consider the possibility of a world-covering flood which would have created these rock layers rapidly and recently. This lesson examines the Top 7 Evidences for the rapid deposition of the rock layers of the Earth and the implications of leaving this Biblical model out of our thinking.
Lesson 5: Dinosaurs and Dragons
Dinosaurs are used extensively to convince children that evolution is a fact and mankind evolved to appear upon the Earth millions of years AFTER dinosaurs went extinct. Yet cultures around the world and throughout history have references to these creatures. This lesson examines how dinosaurs fit into biblical history and reveals recent irrefutable discoveries confirming that dinosaurs were created quite recently – right alongside mankind.
Lesson 6: The Age of Creation
The belief in billions of years of Earth history implies that death, disease, bloodshed, and extinction have been around long before mankind appeared. If this were true, death is not really the penalty for mankind’s sin and God is the “author of death”. This lesson examines exactly how dating methods work, shows why they give erroneous results, and climaxes with a tour through a typical science and history museum which all too often are simply billion-dollar propaganda machines promoting non-biblical philosophical beliefs disguised as science.
