Why would anyone in his right mind voluntarily enter the Colosseum every day to face the lions? 1698 reads There are 10 Comments Hagiography Bert Perry - Thu, 11/01/2018 - 9:26am Word to the wise; organizations that publish hagiographies of their leaders tend to suffer for it. Ham suffers criticism, yes, and I thank God for his willingness to do so, but it's not like he's being fed to the lions here. Aspiring to be a stick in the mud.

I don't see where Bert mentioned who wrote it: Larry Nelson - Thu, 11/01/2018 - 9:35am TylerR wrote: Todd Friel wrote this. He's not an AiG employee. AiG merely published it. Here's what Bert said: "organizations that publish hagiographies...". No mention of who wrote it, only that AiG published it. Yup Bert Perry - Thu, 11/01/2018 - 10:26am TylerR wrote: Todd Friel wrote this. He's not an AiG employee. AiG merely published it. Tyler, Larry nails it. It would be worse if Ham had written it, but since he's the head of AIG, he at least created the culture that signed off on this. An organization that does hagiographies often tends to overlook accountability for their leaders, and that's a huge danger sign. Aspiring to be a stick in the mud. Meh TylerR - Thu, 11/01/2018 - 10:42am Doesn't really bother me. Some people really don't like AiG. I appreciate what they do. If you really want hagiography, just read this.

Ron Bean - Thu, 11/01/2018 - 10:51am Ask everyone you meet outside of your church circles if they know who Ken Ham is. "Some things are of that nature as to make one's fancy chuckle, while his heart doth ache." John Bunyan I appreciate Ken Ham and AIG Jim - Thu, 11/01/2018 - 10:56am I appreciate Ken Ham and AIG. I still think the ark is stupid And he is a little too strident / specific on the young earth (I'm a YEC so we are in close agreement) Twitter Jim's Doctrinal Statement Ark Encounter Darrell Post - Sat, 11/03/2018 - 5:48pm Regarding the Ark, here is the list of American evangelicals in the 21st Century who have worked out a way to get unsaved people, by the tens of thousands annually, to voluntarily pay money to spend a day walking through a gospel presentation. 1. Ken Ham The Gospel Ron Bean - Sun, 11/04/2018 - 12:55pm I've not visited the Ark. I am a Young Earth (with the appearance of age) 6 day creationist. My only reservation is that the clear statement of the Gospel (Jesus Christ died for our sins according to the Scripture and rose again) is often hidden in the effort to prove and defend the Biblical account of creation, a doctrine that even the devils believe. "Some things are of that nature as to make one's fancy chuckle, while his heart doth ache." John Bunyan Gospel is clear at the Ark Darrell Post - Sun, 11/04/2018 - 1:56pm At the end of the second floor and the third floor of the Ark Encounter, guests fill up a large area of benches to watch a video presentation--a very timely relief on the feet given all the walking, and in the second video it is all about how a skeptic is shown the gospel and comes to Christ. Ray Comfort of "The Way of the Master" is shown in the video presenting the gospel. It was very well done, and the gospel message was not a bit clouded.
