In the News: World's "First" Animals?

In December 2011, Discovery News published an on-line article titled, "Earliest Animals Looked Like Baseballs." In the article, Jennifer Viegas referred to a study in the Proceedings of the Royal Society: Biological Sciences that claimed "microscopic 570-million-year-old fossils from China may represent the earliest evidence for animal life on Earth." (Notice the difference in this statement and the aforementioned article title. Whereas the announcement in the title is made with certainty, the statement within the article is toned down considerably.) Fast forward only two months. The same Web site (Discovery News) published a story titled "World's First Animals Were Namibian Sponges" (2012). What's more, these dust-speck-sized sponges were said to be found in Africa "in rocks between 760 and 550 million years old.... That means animals, previously thought to have emerged 600 million to 650 million years ago, actually appeared 100 million to 150 million years before that" ("World's First Animals...," 2012).

Taking the Lord's Name in Vain

Any person who has earnestly read the Bible understands that God's Word has much to say about how we use our words. God condemns gossip (1 Timothy 5:12-13), lying (Ephesians 4:25), filthy talking (Ephesians 5:4), and a host of other detrimental uses of language. On the other hand, He commends building others up (Ephesians 4:29), telling the truth (Ephesians 4:25), preaching the Gospel (Matthew 28:18-20), and a plethora of other constructive uses of our words. In truth, the power of death and life are in the tongue (Proverbs 18:21). It can be used to save, encourage, and build up, or it can be used to kill, destroy, and tear down.

Pluralism, Multiculturalism, Syncretism, and America  

As America continues her downward spiral into social, moral, ethical, and spiritual chaos, it is difficult to realize that the first 150 years of American civilization stand in such stark contrast to current culture. The Christian orientation of this country from its inception is irrefutable, revisionist history notwithstanding. The present extensive transformation of society, and the wholesale abandonment of biblical principles, are astonishing. If the Founding Fathers could be resurrected momentarily to observe the change, they would be unquestionably incredulous. They would be aghast, horrified, and deeply saddened that America could be so thoroughly redirected toward moral degradation-a condition that characterized the France of their day.

Satanás, Job y Una Implicación Falsa  
La Biblia describe a Satanás como el acusador de los justos, quien los acusa ante Dios de día y de noche (Apocalipsis 12:10). En una de las escenas más vívidas que describe la naturaleza acusadora de Satanás, el paciente patriarca Job enfrentó la calumnia cruel de Satanás. Los hijos de Dios habían venido a presentarse ante Dios, y Satanás también vino. Dios preguntó a Satanás si había considerado a Job, un hombre justo que odiaba el pecado. Al responder la pregunta de Dios, Satanás reportó: "Al trabajo de sus manos has dado bendición; por tanto, sus bienes han aumentado sobre la tierra. Pero extiende ahora tu mano y toca todo lo que tiene, y verás si no blasfema contra ti en tu misma presencia" (Job 1:10,11).
