Viewpoint of Mark Cadwallader, Creation Moments Board Chairman
I am working on this letter while on a road trip, taking my son from our home in Texas to a Bible college in California. Yes, September is back-to-school time! It’s also a time for groans from some kids, excited chatter from many others, and sighs of relief from many moms! Whether you send your children to public school, private school or homeschool them, this is the time of year when kids are once again being given the intellectual tools they will use for the rest of their lives.
Sadly, though, in most schools – even in some homeschool curriculum – children are also being taught lies. They are being told things in direct opposition to the Bible. And I’m not just talking about in the science classroom. Evolution is being taught in virtually every classroom – from English and math to social studies and history. The indoctrination of our precious children begins in the earliest grades and follows them through high school and then to college. And don’t think for one minute that your children are safe when you send them to Christian schools and colleges. Very few of these institutions have stayed true to the Word of God. Most of them teach evolution as fact!
God wants us to teach our children about Him. The training of children is primarily the responsibility of the parents. As the Bible tells us in Exodus 10:2: “And that thou mayest tell in the ears of thy son, and of thy son’s son, what things I have wrought in Egypt, and my signs which I have done among them; that ye may know how that I am the LORD.” Though this passage pertains to the teaching of history, it certainly sets an example that teaching about God’s supernatural involvement in His creation is the responsibility of the parents.
As a parent myself, I do whatever I can to get each school year off to a good start. This is why I am so excited about the terrific resource I will tell you about later in this letter. This is also why I’m so blessed to be part of a ministry that has been used by God to teach young people why the Bible is trustworthy, especially in the area where it is most under attack – science! Judging from the letters we receive, we are, indeed, making a difference! Take a look …
“Your Creation Moments radio show has helped me with the educating of my grandchildren. Thank you. God bless you.” – D.M.
“I print off a dozen of your Scrambled Scriptures word search puzzles each week for the children of our church to do and they love it! Many thanks for being such a blessing to so many!” – M.R.
“Thank you for the Creation Moments bulletin inserts. For the past several years I have been printing them out for our church’s use, and members have made a point of saying how much they appreciate them. We think they are especially important in that most of our church’s children have not had the privilege of attending Christian schools and are constantly at risk for believing evolutionary nonsense.” – J.K.
“Every morning I play Creation Moments for my children. I am not always sure they are listening, but today I was thrilled when your program mentioned a book, and my 12-year-old son said, ‘Mom, can you get that?’ I am grateful for Creation Moments and the influence you are having on my family.” – M.S.

And that’s why the following comments from listeners are not only thanking Creation Moments, they are thanking you as well!
“We appreciate all you have done through the years. We frequently use your Creation Moments to teach our children about our Lord Jesus Christ’s true view of science.” – J.C. and C.C.
“Thank you for sharing all of your wonderful stories of Creation! I have learned so very much from you that I would never have learned if you had not shared it. I now share it with my grandchildren and other children at church. You are a wonderful blessing to us all.” – C.J.
“What a blessing your Creation Moments are to creationists! As a pastor’s wife, I tell a children’s story every week. I have used information from your program in my stories. Thank you.” – M.G.
“I am a Children’s Pastor and I often send the kids I serve to Creation Moments when they have questions about life and why life is the way it is; I appreciate all the great information I have received through the years. Creation Moments has very much impacted my life and the life of the many children I serve.” – J.A.
All of us at Creation Moments consider the raising of children to be “job one”. Indeed, our children’s eternal destiny is imperiled by the evolutionary teaching bombarding them from every direction – especially from an educational establishment that has thrown God out of the classroom!
Thank you and God bless you for enabling us to impact the lives of so many children all over God’s creation! Now, keep on reading below to see how you can make a major impact on the children in your own family.
