Introducing Operation: Wittenberg from Tony Breeden

Introducing Operation: Wittenberg

Introducing Operation: Wittenberg

In the wake of Creation Sunday 2010, I got this crazy wonderful idea.

What if we could get churches to nail the first eleven chapters of Genesis to their front doors the way Martin Luther nailed the 95 Theses to the doors of Castle Church? Would it start a New Reformation, a call back to Biblical authority? back to sola Scriptura rather than Scriptura sub scientia? 

As exciting as the idea was, I simply didn’t have time to dedicate anything to it. It deserved a certain amount of attention and I simply had too many irons in the fire. I thought it was too important to cast aside completely, so I designed a banner logo and parked it on a page over at CreationLetter.com, hoping I’d find time to develop it more fully.

Recently at the Answers For Pastors conference, I heard Ken Ham mention several times that he’d like to see churches do the very thing I’d been chewing on for almost the past year. He even had a final slide depicting Martin Luther nailing the 1st eleven chapters of Genesis to the Wittenberg Church door.
Well!

God began stirring at my heart and this is where we stand. Operation: Wittenberg is underway! At this site (http://operationwitternberg.wordpress.com), you’ll find a PDF you can download and print to affix to your church doors this October 31, 2010 – Reformation Sunday!

We hope to have more promotional materials very soon. More importantly, we hope your church makes a stand with us this Reformation Sunday for the ultimate authority of God’s Word from the very first word!

Agreed! I have signed the Creation Letter as shown below:


“Observable, testable, repeatable science has brought us many benefits and innovations. The founders of modern science were Creationists, “thinking God’s thoughts after Him.” Most of the disciplines within science were founded before Darwin or by scientists who actually rejected his theory. The Scientific Method itself is based on the idea that an orderly creation can be rationally understood because it was designed by an Intelligent Creator. Creationists today continue to practice normal, experimental science without need of evolution.
Evolution is not observable, testable, repeatable science. It’s a belief about the past, an atheist Just-So Story seeking to displace the divinely revealed Creation record. It’s based on the flaw of naturalism, which begs that all problems must have a natural explanation, so God isn’t needed. This stands directly at odds with the Biblical claim that God’s existence, eternal power and Godhead are self-evident in His Creation, for it excludes an Intelligent Creator from all consideration. Faulty assumptions lead to faulty conclusions! Sadly, statistics demonstrate that children taught godless evolution as scientific truth reject religious truth wholesale! It’s time to judge this tree by its fruit!

The Bible stands as the inerrant, revealed Word of God. As such, the conclusions and speculations of fallible, finite men should be weighed in light of the revelation of an infallible, infinite God – not the other way ’round. Let God be true and every man a liar!
Some claim to take the Bible seriously but actually hold man’s word as their true authority, so long as it calls itself science; where it disputes the Genesis record, they denigrate the Word of God to mere Bible stories in the tradition of Aesop’s fables. After swallowing the camel of the Resurrection and supernatural miracles, they strain at the gnat of a historical Creation week.

We do not follow cleverly devised fables. While the Bible is NOT a science textbook, the Word of God is true and accurate in all it records. Jesus affirmed the truth and authority of God’s Word, mentioning Creation, Adam and Eve, Abel, Noah and Jonah as matters of fact. Though some object that religious truth is of a different order from scientific truth, Jesus refuted this false dichotomy when He asked Nicodemus, “If I have told you earthly things, and ye believe not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you of heavenly things?” [John 3:12] The very reason Jesus literally died and rose again is a world cursed by the literal Fall of a literal Adam!

We the undersigned affirm the truth of a Biblical, literal 6-day Creation and strongly discourage any Bible-believing Christian from endorsing or celebrating an Evolution Sunday. Evolution is a lie which undermines both Biblical authority and the foundational basis of the Gospel. We urge churches to send a clear message  of the enduring authority of God’s Word by celebrating a Creation Sunday instead of the Clergy Letter Project’s proposed Evolution Sunday. We urge school board members to fight for the integrity of our science curriculum by insisting that evolution’s mortal flaws be published. We ask that science remain science, so that truth may remain truth.”
