10 Creation Vacations

Building Your Biblical Worldview . . . One Destination at a Time.

by Pam Sheppard and Mike Matthews on April 3, 2009

We have an opportunity, everywhere we go, to learn more about God and to increase our discernment.

According to Deuteronomy 6:7, we are to talk about God’s Word everywhere we go—when we sit in our house, when we walk by the way, when we lie down, and when we rise up.

What about vacations?

Some Christians spend months and months finalizing details about where to stay and what to eat, but they never give a thought to their biblical worldview. When visiting zoos, museums, and parks, they often don’t even notice the unbiblical, anti–God teaching, even when they have children.

Others are so concerned about the false teaching that they won’t even consider going to these places.

Both types of Christians are missing out. According to God’s Word, we’re to be in this world but not of this world (1 Corinthians 5:9–10; John 17:15–17).

From the links on the left, we suggest ten destinations to consider visiting. Two are Christian-run, where you can relax and soak in the biblical teaching. Eight others offer fantastic things to see, but you have to watch out for the humanistic content about evolution and history over millions of years.

The key is to prepare yourself with good resources. We’ve suggested some resources, but don’t forget free Christian websites like AnswersInGenesis.org and ChristianAnswers.net.

Why miss out on polar bears, rock canyons, and mounted dinosaurs—which God wants us to study and enjoy—just because of the secular propaganda? Such propaganda can even be turned into learning opportunities.

As a Christian, learn to recognize anti-biblical content, and discern how to answer the propaganda from the perspective of the Bible and solid, observational science. Your efforts will help prepare you and our next generation to live victoriously in this fallen world, as we defend the Christian faith without compromise and proclaim the gospel with authority.
