The Christian Today Australia website recently carried an article reporting on the “State of the Nation” (USA) address I gave recently. The report (with a nice photograph of the set AiG’s AV team built) begins:
Atheism, naturalism replacing Christianity, apologist says Apologist: Christianity Losing Out to Secular Humanism?

We have changed,” said Ken Ham, president of Answers in Genesis, in his second State of the Nation address on Tuesday.
The Young Earth creationist was citing President Obama's well-known mantra that America is no longer just a Christian nation as he delivered an hour-long speech outlining where America and Christianity stand today–just weeks after Obama’s State of the Union address.
He sees Christianity being thrown out of the public sector and mocked and generations of Americans building their worldview on secular humanism.
“Most of the founding fathers of this nation . . . built the worldview of this nation on the authority of the Word of God,” he said. “Because of that, there have been reminders in this culture concerning God’s Word, the God of creation.”
We are a homeschooling family who loves the Answers in Genesis ministry, its materials, speakers, and magazine. Through homeschooling conferences we’ve been able to meet Dr. Chittick and Mr. Mike Riddle. We’ve seen many videos featuring Mr. Ken Ham and read countless books published by the Answers in Genesis ministries. When we discovered [Answers] magazine, we subscribed to it right away and even ordered all the previous back issues. We didn’t want to miss a thing. We were so blessed by them and learned so much that we decided to share them with our family here in the U.S. We got gift subscriptions for them at Christmas time. We are praying that God will use the powerful information in this resource to impact lives with the truth and give people a clear understanding of the accuracy and reliability of God’s Word.
. . . the main reason I’m writing to you is to share with you how God has used your materials to impact my father’s life. He is an engineer . . .who grew up being taught the lies of evolution in school, college, the media, and even in his church . . . . As a result he did not believe the Bible was accurate. Since he is a fluent English speaker, my husband and I prayerfully decided to purchase the entire collection of back issues of AiG magazines and sent them to [him in] Argentina. We hoped that the graphically appealing, shorter articles and concise, clear information would motivate my father to read them, even when he might not have read a larger book on the subject of biblical accuracy.
Well, he did read them! And we are praising God after he told us how the information in the Answers in Genesis magazines has totally shifted his way of thinking: “I am learning to think in a whole new way and it’s exciting,” he told us recently. “Right now I’m learning about the dimensions of the Ark. Wow! I’ve had many AH HA! moments when things just clicked in my head and I understood them for the first time!”
Thank you for making it possible for this man we love so much to finally understand that the Bible is the true and inerrant Word of God that can be trusted from the very first chapter. We know that this understanding is removing stumbling blocks to accepting Jesus Christ as Savior and is enabling him to embrace biblical truths in the face of lies and deceit. The rest of our Argentinean family is watching and hearing dad marvel at his new understanding, and we pray that God will turn their hearts towards His truth, and towards Him, as well!Over 70,000 people subscribe to the world’s leading creation/Christian worldview and apologetics family magazine—one of the greatest tools you could invest in for your family.

I determinedThanks for stopping by and thanks for praying, Ken
(1 Corinthians 2:2) For I determined not to know any thing among you, save Jesus Christ, and Him crucified.
Not about business, vacations, hobbies, recreations, or politics, but our determination is to make the Lord Jesus Christ and His death our chief interest and delight.
