US Budget Crisis

October 24, 2011

US budget crisis; expensive, overcrowded prisons that don’t work; really low science test scores; and the unscientific evolution theory. What’s the connection? More than you would think.

The budget is in the news a lot these days. (Actually there is no budget so they just spend, spend, spend while they can.) Even the huge BOP (Bureau of Prisons) budget made USA Today, I understand. It’s about time! America locks up about 760 per 100,000, while most European countries lock up 80 per 100,000. Hmmmm? Are Americans 10 times more wicked than Europeans or are we fighting the wrong battles? In spite of spending a royal fortune on education, American school students test twenty-third against the rest of the world. Hmmmm? Well, let’s look at some obvious connections and fixes.

First, we teach the kids the unproven evolution theory which teaches students that they are just animals. Then we sit back and wonder why they act like animals. Hmmmm? Let’s get this evolution-religion out of science class and put it in a religion class if it is taught at all. It is a waste of science class time and science textbook space and by mixing true science and religion, it only confuses the kids. No wonder they test low in science. See Creation Seminar Part 4 for lots more on that! This problem didn’t exist when we taught our students, “We hold these truths to be self-evident. All men are created equal. They are endowed by their Creator…” Let’s shut down the entire Federal Department of Education and let states run their own schools. Parents know best; not politicians in Washington, DC.

Next, let’s totally stop federal involvement in scores of things for which the Constitution does not allow. If the Federal government simply followed the Constitution that elected officials all swore to uphold, much of the budget could be eliminated. We lock up 2.3 million bread winners and put most of those families on welfare and wonder why the economy has problems. Hmmmm? Ya don’t need to be a genius to figure that out.

I’m not Republican or Democrat but Ron Paul, who the media is trying desperately to ignore, seems to have many of the puzzle pieces laid on the table. I urge you to listen carefully to what he says.

The only REAL solution is 2 Chronicles 7:14. Both the problem and the solution are spiritual. Let’s read that one carefully today and check our hearts. Are we right with God? Is our sin helping bring on God’s judgment? Hmmmm? Thankfully, we have 1 John 1:9. God has already provided our propitiation for us! Let’s apply that to our everyday walk with God.

    I couldn’t agree with you more Brother Hovind. This theory of evolution is really the basis for a lot of the problems we have in our world today.

    I’ve got some good news though. Here in South Africa they’re going on about the ‘Cradle of Humankind’ at the Magalies mountains. So my wife and I decided to go check out what all the hype was about. Right through the tour they were speaking about ‘Millions and millions of years’…so I was starting to get irritated and began to ask simple questions regarding the validity of these discoveries. The tour guide was stumped, and my wife asked me to keep quiet and let the man do his job.

    After the tour the guide came to us and we talked a while about evolution and creation. It turned out he was a Christian and he only did this to have a job.I told him to get the Kent Hovind series on creation.

    So a couple of years went buy, didn’t think much of it, then one of my friends went to the Sterkfontein Caves at the Magalies mountains, and he told me ‘You won’t believe what happened when I bought my ticket’

    He explained to me that whenever a ticket was sold at the caves, you also get a free copy of your creation seminars. WOW!!! so although the people give the whole lecture on evolution blah blah, the people go home and find out the truth.

    Just goes to show, that you have to be a witness for Jesus Christ everywhere you go, you never know the big impact it could have down the line.

    Thank you for all your hard work, and we pray that one day when you are released that you could pay South Africa a visit.

    Kindest regards and Blessings

    I couldn’t agree more Dr. Hovind. Unfortunately, almost all of the Christians I know seem to be moving away from Ron Paul. Most cite his idea of stopping foreign aid to Israel. It seems to me that the church has been co-opted to side with the military industrial complex. It’s very unfortunate and I wonder if it has anything to do with the 501c status.

    Regardless, I’m glad to see that you are for Ron Paul.

    Mr Paul is a good choice for President. I plan to vote for him in the primary. How likely do you think he would be to further our agenda of removing the religion of evolution from textbooks? I would imagine he would be in favor of leaving it to the states.

    Hi Kent. Thank you for your blogs. Besides that, I want to thank you so much on behalf of many others. Besides stoking my fire for Christ (I now do ministry through a website to get others saved), the salvation of people here that started from your Creation Seminars is amazing. We got a friend saved and she loves your stuff; she in turn is evangelising lots in her area. From that, people are getting saved and turning their lives around; even the weak in faith have had their fire kindled and now have gone from not knowing who’s right, to holding Bible studies. Drunks have given up alcohol. and it all started from sharing your seminars with a friend! God bless you Kent!!! When you get out, please remember that we really want you to speak in South Africa, in the meantime we Christians and Creationists have our work cut out for us, but we’re doing our best and South Africa is a place where many people WANT to know and learn more! And if Rapture happens before your release, then we’ll see you in Heaven and we can “taste and hear the colours” together! In the meantime, stay strong and know that plenty of us in South Africa love you, pray for you and can’t wait for the day of your release!

    Yours in Christ,
    Matt – Johannesburg, South Africa

    Well, you just answered my question if you liked Ron Paul, thanks, lol. And, yes, I totally agree with everything you just said.
    God is with you Brother.

    It is undeniable that the Libertarian philosphy of Ron Paul is also closer to the spirit of federalism as it was originally intended. Rather than trust in the overbearing hand of centralized government or trust even in excessive government at even the local level, the founding fathers believed that deeply instilled moral values were the self-controlling mechanism for our fledgling democracy. The most recent fifty years has proven them to be correct. (I am reminded of the multitude of slides of statistical charts which were included in Dr. Hovind’s image package which I bought from CSE a few years ago.) We took the Bible and prayer out of the schools and, thereby, started a cultural decline which is clearly identifiable.

    The irony of this situation is that so many of our voters are so dependendent upon the federal government, at least indirectly, that any talk of such changes sound rediculous, extreme and dangerous. This growing group does not want these changes that are absolutely necessary.

    Yep and soon it will all come crashing down on them.

    God bless you Kent for continuing to speak truth in spite of persecution.

    You must be hitting spot on for them to go to these lengths to sequester you.
