August 18, quick CSE updates

August 18, 2006

It’s a boy! Well, he is not here yet but due to modern technology (which has nothing to do with evolution) Eric and Tanya Hovind discovered yesterday that child #3 for them is a boy. After having two wonderful girls, Stephanie, soon to be 4 and Angie age 2 ½ this was exciting news for Eric and Tanya. This one will bring the total to 5 grandkids for Jo and I. All live within 100 yards and come see “grandpa” and “granny Jo” every day. What a joy! We enjoyed raising our three but this grandpa stuff is much better!

Dinosaur Adventure Land continues to have visitors every day even with school starting back last week. Our DAL home school classes begin in a few weeks so stop by the bookstore and sign up if you want to come.

Construction and remodeling will begin in a few weeks on “Camp Creation” in Ellisville, Mississippi. Call Dan Vallis, 850-479-3466 ext. 123 if you want to help. He will need painters, framers, finish carpenters, yard workers, trail blazers to clear nature trails and general grunt workers anytime over the next few months. Bring your family and stay in the dorms for a few days if you like.

Other news, the court date over the IRS battle has been moved to Oct. 17 now so keep praying please. Costs of defending ourselves against these bogus charges have been astronomical! Thank you to those who have donated to the “legal defense fund.” You can call in a credit card donation or donate on line.

Eric continues to travel and preach but nearly all my September meetings have been cancelled so if you know of any church, school or group in northern Florida that would be interested in having a creation seminar on short notice please call Marlissa at ext. 113. I must confess though that after traveling hard for 17 years the stay at home break has been great! I am getting things done on the honey do list and seeing more of my wife and family than I have in a long time.

The CSE 101-104 series has been, and continues to be, a blessing to thousands since it was taped in 1999 but now, after months of delay and technical problems, college class CS 201 is finally nearing completion. This new series has much more information to help those wanting to be better prepared to defend their faith against those who believe in evolution. Watch the web site for scores of other new products as well.

We also need a full time web master to come join the ministry team.  Call Glenda at ext 110 for an application.

All for now,

Kent Hovind

    I read in section 8 of the Constitution that Congress has the power to “lay and collect taxes.” I have great respect for Dr. Hovind and believe he is sincere when he claims to have done nothing wrong. Could anyone here at this blog reference documentation regarding exemptions from taxes for churches and their opperations?

    congratulations on the baby. What can we do to help your ministry. Also my wife and I are interested in having Dr. Hovind speak at our church (The Rock Family Church in Ocala, Fl.) If you find time please contact me at 352-502-2837 or email at [email protected]

    p.s. I have studied the Hovind series for a long time now and am very familiar with your material. Whenever I play a seminar or debate it seems as though people flock to the scene and are extremely intrigued as I was. We would like to do a video series at our church so others can see your material. It will be free, but may take up an offering for your ministry. We would like to be sure that we have your permission to show the whole series at our church. Thank you.
    sincerely, Jeremy, Amanda, and Tori Richards we are praying for you on the IRS issue
    so fear not.

    Dear Kent, and Saints scattered throughout north America,

    it doesn’t come easily, it doesn’t come quickly, but it does come: people who sit down and start to examine the ‘common law advocacy’ material do eventually get the picture. It is such a giant subject and there are so many places to begin, and so many rabbit holes to divert one’s attention – but I would highly recommend the work of “Judge: David-Wynn: Miller” and “Cracking the Code” as places to start.

    One of the titles of Jesus [Yahoshuah] is “King of kings, and Lord of lords”. These words convey the implication that unless one learns to be a king in a royal household then Jesus cannot be one’s own Lord and King.

    Unless men take their own sovereignty seriously, and the identity that engenders, they can only be slaves; they have no alternative.

    God grant you peace and wisdom to walk in His ways.

    brother: Phillip-George (c) 1974

    Praise God that in the darkness his light will still shine and his blessings will still come! Congrats on grandbaby #5 soon to come and on the new camp. And thank God that these hard time have been a blessing unto you to be able to get things done and spend wonderful time with your family. Keep working for the Kingdom! God Bless you and your family.

    Brother Hovind,
    You have my support and the support of my wife and children. We will continue to pray for you and your wife regarding this IRS issue. I don’t have to know all the facts, per sey. I believe you are a blessed servant of the Lord Jesus, and since I know quite the contrary is true of the IRS, I pray the Lord will use this ordeal for His glory. In the meantime, let me leave you with a paraphrase of my life verse, from Psalm 23:4: “Yea, though you pass through this valley of the shadow of the IRS, remember the Lord is with. His Word and His Spirit will comfort you.” May the Lord bless you.
    RC Murray
