Christian Educational, Book, and Family Resources

Answers in Genesis - Answers in Genesis is an apologetics (i.e., Christianity-defending) ministry, dedicated to enabling Christians to defend their faith, and to proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ effectively. We focus particularly on providing answers to questions surrounding the book of Genesis, as it is the most-attacked book of the Bible. We also desire to train others to develop a biblical worldview, and seek to expose the bankruptcy of evolutionary ideas, and its bedfellow, a “millions of years old” earth (and even older universe). AiG teaches that “facts” don’t speak for themselves, but must be interpreted. That is, there aren’t separate sets of “evidences” for evolution and creation—we all deal with the same evidence (we all live on the same earth, have the same fossils, observe the same animals, etc.). The difference lies in how we interpret what we study. The Bible—the “history book of the universe”—provides a reliable, eye-witness account of the beginning of all things, and can be trusted to tell the truth in all areas it touches on. Therefore, we are able to use it to help us make sense of this present world. When properly understood, the “evidence” confirms the biblical account.

Focus on the Family - There's more to Focus on the Family that meets the eye (or ear). Even those who listen regularly to our radio broadcast and have a fairly solid acquaintance with our purposes and philosophy might be surprised at the actual scope of our activities and involvement. From humble and simple beginnings – a book on child discipline and a 25-minute weekly broadcast which first aired in 1977 – Focus on the Family has grown and expanded over the years to include a wide array of separate ministries under its umbrella. The following descriptions, which detail to some extent our purposeful intentions to strengthen, mobilize, and defend families, are intended to provide just a taste of the variety of these programs, projects, and outreaches.

Plugged In Online - Plugged In is a Focus on the Family publication designed to help equip parents, youth leaders, ministers and teens with the essential tools that will enable them to understand, navigate and impact the culture in which they live. Entertainment is a potent influence on our culture for both good and evil. Through our reviews and discussions of that entertainment, we hope to spark intellectual thought, family discussion, spiritual growth and a strong desire to follow the command of Colossians 2:8. "See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the basic principles of this world rather than on Christ."

Wall Builders - Wall Builders is an organization dedicated to presenting America's forgotten history and heroes, with an emphasis on the moral, religious, and constitutional foundation on which America was built-a foundation which, in recent years, has been seriously attacked and undermined. In accord with what was so accurately stated by George Washington, we believe that "the propitious [favorable] smiles of heaven can never be expected on a nation which disregards the eternal rules of order and right which heaven itself has ordained."

    We are still adding more sites to this page. If you have any suggestions please email me and I will consider them for the TGP resources page. Please understand that I cannot say that I whole heartedly support every aspect of these sites or agree with their doctrinal statements completely or their philosophies. I try to recommend Christian web sites that support the fundamentals of the faith and promote Biblical standards and Godly philosophies. Some websites are not Christian, but are news sites or tech sites. If you find something you personally disagree with doctrinally, philosophically or their standards, please pass the site on. If you find something that is inappropriate (i.e. inappropriate advertising, foul language, etc.), please let me know so I can remove that site from this listing. I have visited each one of these sites, but changes do happen and I may not catch them all. Thanks for your help in making this a productive and helpful resources page.
