1,000 in Central New York

by Ken Ham on September 28, 2010

Around 1,000 people crammed into the auditorium in Farmington, in rural central New York, last night for the public meeting associated with a Calvary Chapel pastors’ regional conference. I am one of the keynote speakers.

I received many great comments. One young man said he is a non-Christian and is tired of going to Christian meetings and hearing the same old stuff.  He said what he heard last night is the first time he had heard a Christian talk that gave answers and logical thinking. We had a great discussion, and I challenged him concerning his salvation.

Here are some photographs of the evening:

They changed their glory into the similitude of an ox

(Psalm 106:19-20)  They made a calf in Horeb, and worshipped the molten image. Thus they changed their glory into the similitude of an ox that eats grass.

We are made to glory in something; everyone has a glory of what they delight in and worship—our glory is the Lord Jesus Christ.
