Temporal versus Eternal
 This country has just come through one of the most bitter elections in our history. Iraq is in turmoil, Iran and North Korea are threatening, doomsayers and naysayers abound—and the morality of this "Christian" nation is in the worst shape in many decades. Is there hope? Can the Lord's people do anything to confront and abate the issues?

"Salt" Heals and "Light" Exposes

Those terms that Jesus uses are no mere metaphors about the impact of the Christian witness. The gospel is "power" (Romans 1:16), and the "light" of truth (John 3:21) exposes the "darkness" of evil (John 3:19). We are commissioned to be "ambassadors" (II Corinthians 5:20) and to "persuade" men (II Corinthians 5:11)—not a simple task of evangelization! It is an all-encompassing mission to reconcile men to God. Our role is to "capture" the thoughts of men, bringing them into obedience to Christ (II Corinthians 10:3-6).

ICR Is Positioned to Launch a Major Initiative

ICR is unique among parachurch organizations. We have been doing research to combat the "virus" of evolutionary science which spreads the "disease" of atheistic naturalism throughout society. The information we have uncovered is accurate, demonstrative, and powerful. But, we lack the resources to get the message out to the many. Yes, there's more research to do and work for the technical experts for many years to come. But we have the "ammunition" now for a major assault!

Here's How You Can Help

However, we need significantly more funds to mount an assault against the horrific error now dominating our schools, colleges, seminaries, and universities. We have the science. We need the exposure. We know the answers, we must communicate more effectively. Help us expand the "salt" of a Biblical worldview and turn on the "light" of creationist science.

This is the time of year when we consider significant gifts. Please evaluate your assets and share something special—something eternal for this vital work.
