Darwin Was Wrong!
Charles Darwin was dead wrong about so many important truths – yet his dead body lies enshrined in Westminster Chapel and a statue of him has been placed on the stairway of a library and museum of science in London. His picture is like an icon to evolutionists all over the world and his birth is celebrated even in many so-called “churches” on Darwin Day, February 9. Abraham Lincoln was born on the exact same day a continent away, February 9, 1809, yet in spite of his godly attitudes and accomplishments – such as winning freedom for slaves – he is rarely mentioned in most churches. Why? (I’m thankful that his birthday and George Washington’s are remembered as President’s Day on our American calendars.) There is solid evidence that Abraham Lincoln was truly converted to Christ during his presidency and baptized into Christ by a Christian evangelist. Even before his conversion he demonstrated a deep reverence for Almighty God and His Word. Here are a few things that Darwin was wrong about: (Do you recognize why these are wrong?)
1. The simple cell. (There is no such thing as a “simple cell”!)
2. Spontaneous generation – that life may have begun by an electric charge in a warm little pond.
3. Macro-evolutionism – a common ancestor for all living things.
4. The Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection.
A. Species are simply variations in created kinds of animals. There are definite limits to variation. Micro-evolution is misnamed. What is deceptively named “micro-evolution” is actually only variation within the created kinds. Our awesome Creator designed the potential of a tremendous amount of variety within each kind of creature. For example, the canine kind of animals includes everything from the huge Great Dane to the tiny Chihuahua, and the wolf to the dingo – and they all go back to a common ancestor. Darwin’s false fantasy was the concept that all forms of life – plant, animal and human go back to a common ancestor (which is a blatant contradiction to the Word of God!).
B. Nature is not a person – no ability to select – no intelligence.
5. Racism: The Preservation of Favored Races in the Struggle for Life (the subtitle for Darwin’s most popular book).
6. His rejection of the Word of God as his infallible standard.
7. His slide deeper and deeper into atheism.
8. His acceptance of Charles Lyell’s Principles of Geology, accompanied by James Hutton’s rejection of the Biblical account of Creation and the Flood.
9. His refusal to renounce his false doctrine and repent – in spite of his strong inner conflicts and severe doubts.
10. His refusal to accept the grace of God and forgiveness to receive peace and joy instead of his stomach churning and psychotic behavior as a result of his doubts and inner conflict.
11. The Decent of Man – Charles Darwin’s book published in 1872 – 13 years after The Origin of Species told us his fantasy that human beings are descendants of ape-like ancestors. Evolutionists have offered many so-called proofs of transitional forms between apes and humans (ape men). None of them are proof – and many of them have already been exposed as hoaxes and frauds.
“More Than Conquerors in Cultural Clashes”
Praise God! Finally this book is republished by WestBow and available both in print and digital format. Please pray with us that:
1. God will use it to powerfully influence multitudes of Americans to give their lives to Jesus and to become bold witnesses for Him.
2. And please pray with us that at least 1,000 copies will sell during this first quarter of 2017.
Before the book was released in its revised form, WestBow sent us a series of questions in an interview form. Here are the questions and my responses:
1. What inspired you to write this book?
The pervasive and persuasive propaganda of the left-wing ideology of Darwinism and Marxism – which is misnamed “political correctness.”
2. Summarize your book in one to three sentences as if you were speaking to someone unfamiliar with your book and its topic.
This book is an expanded commentary on Paul’s inspired warning given to us in Colossians 2:8-10. “Beware lest anyone cheat you through philosophy and empty deceit, according to the tradition of men, according to the basic principles of the world, and not according to Christ. For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily; and you are complete in Him, who is the head of all principality and power.”
3. What is the overall theme (central topic, subject or concept) of your book?
The overall theme of this book is Biblical truth and reality, as confirmed in my own life through the transforming power of our Lord Jesus Christ, resulting in amazing joy and peace, contrasted with the lies and philosophical foolishness of the world which parades itself as “science,” “wisdom” and “political correctness.” Not only my own experience and the experiences of multitudes of transformed lives testify to the wisdom and verifiable truth of the Bible, but also the established laws of science and the abundant historic and archaeological confirmations as well. You can trust the Bible! You can trust God Himself as revealed in the Bible!
4. Where does this book take place?
In USA, but the issues are pertinent in the cultures of many other nations.
5. Who are the main characters and why are they important to the story?
Christ and Satan – because the conflict of the ages has been going on since the Garden of Eden.
6. Why do you think that this book will appeal to readers?
Because our country is in the throes of cultural conflicts – which have been escalating for decades.
7. How is your book relevant in today’s society?
Perhaps a better question would be: “How is this book not relevant in today’s society?”
8. Is there any subject currently trending in the news that relates to your book?
Yes, definitely! From the purported “proofs” of evolution (which are later exposed as frauds, etc.), to the purported “proofs” of homosexuals being “born that way,” to violence and riots on America’s streets, this book is relevant!
9. What makes your book different from other books like it?
I have many books by popular authors that deal with some of the issues in this book, but I am not aware of any book that delves as deeply into the root causes of our cultural conflicts, or covers such a wide spectrum of intertwined philosophies causing the conflicts and confusion.
10. What do you want readers to take away from your writing?
First – a commitment to Jesus Christ as Lord, and a deep assurance of salvation.
Second – a solid faith in the reliability of the Bible as the infallible Word of God and an abiding trust in the goodness and sovereignty of our awesome God!
Third – strong confidence in the power of God so as to be bold witnesses for Jesus.
11. How did you learn about the topic? (i.e. personal experience, education, etc.)
I have a curious nature and love to read and to listen to talk radio. I also have a lot of personal experience in dealing with the cultural conflicts.
12. Is there a particular passage from your book you’d like us to utilize? If so, please provide.
Chapter 4 – “How to Handle Conflict”: “Because of our innate differences, any two people (or more) who live together will sometimes irritate each other, and because we all inherit a selfish nature, sometimes our wills will clash. There will be conflict. The key to having good relationships is learning how to handle conflict. Some conflicts will be mild; some may be explosive. Since not one of us is always right, there are four phrases that make a marriage work:
I was wrong.
I am sorry.
Please forgive me.
I love you.
These four phrases are based on the Biblical principles of love, acceptance, and forgiveness. In fact, these same principles and phrases build beautiful relationships – not only in marriage but also in family and friendships. However, don’t try using these phrases as a gimmick. No one loves and appreciates a hypocritical con-artist. Honesty is the best policy!”
To the Glory of God
“If you would not be forgotten as soon as you are dead, either write something worth reading, or do things worth writing” – Benjamin Franklin. I hope to be doing both, but nothing I do is valuable or lasting unless it is empowered and led by the Holy Spirit and done to the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ. Bill & Gloria Gaither said it so well: ‘Life is worth the livin’ just because He lives!”

“I have so appreciated your newsletters, and the email prayer requests Sandy has sent. I do have a lot more time for prayer now. I was glad to hear about your trip, Rick. And all the other articles. Satan is working overtime – BUT – we serve an awesome, amazing GOD. All praise to Him!
Blessings to you both, Gwen” (Eichel)

“Please, pray for my mother. She has unexpected bleeding from her tongue. She is going to be 80 this March. We do not know what to do about it right now. Waiting for the doctor. We hope nothing serious…
Thank you for sharing newsletter* from Volodya and the article about criticism. God is good! Lord willing I will be able to serve and help Volodya and his congregation. I have developed several new sermons and preached them at Messianic church. Now I feel like I need to make short videos based on those sermons and locate them on the Internet for people I am in contact with to lead them to the Lord! Please, pray about it. Next week meetings are planned to meet with personnel of the prisons and opportunities to speak in prisons. Now I am preparing for that.
Please, also pray for peace in Ukraine… It is Russian aggression. Russia needed to take their troops from our territory. We pray it will become possible. Believers in Ukraine do what they can to help people.
Have a good day, Zhenya” (Molodchy)
*Note: Volodya and Maryana Vakula, along with a co-worker named Igor, operate a very effective outreach and rehab ministry to drug and alcohol addicts. God rescued both Volodya and Igor from that trap themselves.

“Good morning Rick…greetings in our Lord Jesus, Iryna and I wanted to share with you and the friends of the ministry that the ministry is growing especially to the children you met at the orphanage near the Transition Home and also to the local schools here.
That being said we are now looking at starting a special youth service on Sundays at 4 pm. near the orphanage, where older children from the orphanage can attend as well as teens from the schools.
Our outreach team needs a sound system/guitar/overhead projector and other AV equipment like mics and cords. The cost of these items to purchase here in Ukraine is $1000…Rick, please share this need with your friends that you believe would like to support this work and bless the team and children.
Note, this equipment will also be used for the orphan summer camps outreach that LCI is planning.
To close, Rick, we also would like to have a church or group/individual become the sponsors of this new Youth Church…we are looking for $100 per month sponsor.
Iryna and I wish you and Della His blessings and encouragement.
What is taking place here is truly amazing…praise Him.
In His Grace

Urgent Prayer Concerns
1. Recently we received this urgent prayer request from our friend, Janzi Frandin: “Emergency prayer for my Ukrainian friend Galena’s sister, son, husband, trapped in city of Donetsk, with others, who cannot get out, and City is under heavy, heavy fire. Thank you so much, for Galena rang weeping for Prayer.”
2. On a news report on Saturday, February 4, I heard that the Trump Administration is condemning the Russian aggression in eastern Ukraine. Praise God! On the other hand, I heard some broadcasts that Donald Trump continues to try to build bridges of friendship with Putin. That puzzles me, however, my speculation is that Donald Trump, who can be quite a persuasive negotiator, is trying to gain enough favor with Putin to be able to persuade him to pull his troops out of Ukraine without sending American troops and shedding a lot more blood. I hope I’m right. Please pray!
3. Please pray that our USA does not degenerate into another bitter and bloody civil war like America experienced back in 1861-1865. To clarify what is happening for our consultants (many of our consultants are in Ukraine):
Our country has been infiltrated and saturated with Marxism (undergirded with Darwinism and humanism). From the public schools to universities, and from all the major news sources to the arts (especially Hollywood), and from the halls of Congress to the Supreme Court – justice, truth, and freedom are distorted and mocked by devoted Marxists intent upon accomplishing their perverted agenda. Barack Hussein Obama (the Marxist/Muslim darling of the Marxist movement) is now out of the White House, and Hillary Clinton (their next choice) didn’t get in. Why not? Because enough Americans awoke out of their sleep and voted against the Marxist agenda. The result – the Marxist losers are fuming mad and are on the rampage. The riots and bloodshed you may have seen and heard on news reports are the Marxists showing their true colors!
By the way, clear back in 1944 Norman Thomas, who ran for President of the USA six times on the Socialist Party ticket, decided not to run again. Why not? He said he didn’t need to because the Democratic Party had adopted the Communist Party platform. The “Democratic Party” also is viciously committed to promoting the abortion industry, the homosexual agenda, and open borders for Islamic terrorists to come flooding into our country. Why? Because their true purpose is to destroy the constitutional republic our founding fathers designed to be “one nation under God.” Barack Hussein Obama even used it as part of his campaign speeches to say that he was intent on wanting to fundamentally transform America. He accomplished most of his goal but now has lost his throne. Please pray with us that much of his devastating legacy can be overturned and the United States of America can be restored to the land of the free and the home of the brave, and which gives the glory and credit to Almighty God! Please pray for atheism, communism, and Islam to be out of the halls of influence, and righteousness, truth, and Biblical standards to be back in (as America’s founders intended).
The Republican Party has an excellent party platform that is pro-life, pro-family and pro-America. Unfortunately, too many professing Republicans are closet Marxists themselves and are siding with the Democratic Party on many issues. When you scrape away the cover-up lies, this is what the rampaging, the riots, and the wrath of Democrats and conflicts in America boil down to. We need your prayers.
Norman Thomas had formerly been a seminary student (as both Darwin and Stalin had been). He studied at the liberal Union Theological Seminary and became a Presbyterian minister – but degenerated from there to become a socialist activist and one of the founders of the ACLU (a communist front organization).
Back in the 1970’s Malcolm Muggeridge made the comment about Western civilization, “We have educated ourselves into imbecility!” The imbecility is now in a much more advanced condition – like a malignant cancer. For example, the “politically correct” crowd is trying to create genders that God Himself never created. Transgender is a physical, emotional, and scientific impossibility. Why? Because God created a male to be a male and a female to be a female down to every last cell in his body and her body. No amount of sharp scalpels or hormone treatments will alter the hard facts. Yes, there are gender confused individuals – and homosexual activists are intent on capitalizing on that confusion. But God is not the author of confusion! Are you aware that a woman’s brain is not wired the same way as a man’s? Who is going to attempt to rewire the brain of an individual who desires to be transgendered? Is it any surprise that many so-called transgendered individuals are more unhappy after the process than they were before? Why? Because it is the height of ingratitude and arrogance to believe that you have the right to change the person God designed you to be. It is flagrant disobedience to the command to be content with what you have.
Perhaps the epitome of imbecility was capped off by our so-called “Supreme Court” on June 26, 2015. Putting the label “Holy Matrimony” on the practice of sodomy makes about as much sense as putting the label “Chocolate Cream Pie” on a cow pie! Filth is still filth no matter what label perverts put on it. The five “Supreme Court” justices who ramrodded this decision over the strong protests of the other four will answer before the “Supreme Court of the Universe” when they stand before Almighty God. Pray they repent and submit themselves to His offer of Grace and Forgiveness before that fateful day!
Are you aware of the fact that until 1962, sodomy was still on the books in many of our states as a serious crime (felony)? Now sodomy is celebrated in the streets of many American cities in obscene and pagan perversions of decency under the banner of “Gay Pride Parades.” What a flagrant insult to the God of Heaven and to the nation that began in 1776 under the banner “Jesus Is Our King.” The Word of God labels both pride and sodomy as abominations.
How did sodomy get sanitized and transformed in fifty five years from a crime to be punished, to a glory to be celebrated? It was the powerful propaganda of political correctness! Where did political correctness come from? Get a copy of More than Conquerors in Cultural Clashes if you really want to know.
Lurking in the shadows of “politically correct” ideas and the promotion of Marxism, globalism, homosexuality and the undermining of our “one nation under God” are several powerful billionaires. Most prominent of these are George Soros, one of the most evil men on earth, and Tom Gill, an activist promoter of homosexuality. How did the sleeping giant (Middle America – and all those not persuaded by the flood of Marxist propaganda) wake up in time to vote against the Marxist/feminist, Hillary Clinton? (Especially since George Soros owns and controls most of the major media sources). I believe the answer lies in the many converging prayer movements prior to the elections.
How will America keep from slipping back under the domination and control of shadowy billionaires and the entire Marxist cartel pushing for a one world anti-Christ government? “ if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:14 (NKJV)
In a recent publication from Scott Lively, I found this pertinent insight: “In 1971 leftist strategist Saul D. Alinsky published his infamous handbook for ‘community organizers’ titled Rules for Radicals, which ever since has been the essential resource for left-wing agitators, including the Clintons and Obamas. On the dedication page in Rules for Radicals, Alinsky tipped his hat to ‘the first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom – Lucifer,’ [the entity also known as Satan, the Father of Lies and Enslaver of Mankind]. As we conservative populists begin to reclaim our nation from the anti-American Bolsheviks who have been empowered since the 70s by Alinsky’s street-fighting tactics, we need a present-day resource for pro-American Constitutionalists.”
“When you take a stand for truth, you’re going to have a head-on collision with error.” – Adrian Rogers.
Therefore, if you have the perception that we are engaged in something much more serious than disputed political positions – you are absolutely right. This is spiritual warfare! Intense spiritual warfare! We must remember: “For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. 4 For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, 5 casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ,” 2 Corinthians 10:3-5 (NKJV)
Has it also occurred to you that the United States of America has been experiencing one shocking disaster after another, after another? Does it also look to you like Almighty God has withdrawn His protective hand from this once great nation (which has been expelling His presence for so many years)? What should we do? “if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:14 (NKJV)
Also Scott Lively has a list of ten practical suggestions which I will send you upon request. More than Conquerors in Cultural Clashes has many more suggestions as well. Once again, I choose to quote Bill & Gloria Gaither: “Because He lives, I can face tomorrow – because He lives, all fear is gone!” Yes! Wow! I can live and walk confidently in the power of my Risen Lord Jesus!
