  • Jim Scudder Jr.: Are yourancestors ape-like creatures,
  • 00:00:01.985 --> 00:00:04.521
  • or are you madein the image of God?
  • 00:00:04.554 --> 00:00:07.624
  • Find out today on "In Grace"with our special guest, Ken Ham.
  • 00:00:07.657 --> 00:00:11.494
  • Jim: Ever since I was a boy,I've been fascinated
  • 00:00:19.502 --> 00:00:22.038
  • with God's creation.
  • 00:00:22.072 --> 00:00:24.340
  • I'm traveling the planet totell his story about his world.
  • 00:00:24.374 --> 00:00:28.445
  • I'm Jim Scudder Jr. Come with meon another
  • 00:00:28.478 --> 00:00:31.648
  • exciting adventure in grace.
  • 00:00:31.681 --> 00:00:34.184
  • Are you a result of random,purposeless chance,
  • 00:00:38.855 --> 00:00:44.394
  • or are you here becauseGod made you and loves you?
  • 00:00:44.427 --> 00:00:49.532
  • I'd rather believe the latterbecause it means
  • 00:00:49.566 --> 00:00:51.935
  • that I have a purpose anda reason to be here.
  • 00:00:51.968 --> 00:00:56.840
  • Last time on "In Grace,"we began a tour
  • 00:00:56.873 --> 00:00:58.942
  • of the amazing museumin northern Kentucky that
  • 00:00:58.975 --> 00:01:02.378
  • gave us answers to the world'smost perplexing questions.
  • 00:01:02.412 --> 00:01:06.149
  • Is there a God?
  • 00:01:06.182 --> 00:01:07.750
  • Why are we here?
  • 00:01:07.784 --> 00:01:09.252
  • Where will I go when I die?
  • 00:01:09.285 --> 00:01:11.221
  • And is there hope?
  • 00:01:11.254 --> 00:01:13.590
  • Ken Ham will again be our guide,and he's the founder
  • 00:01:13.623 --> 00:01:16.326
  • of Answers in Genesis.
  • 00:01:16.359 --> 00:01:19.129
  • He speaks around the worldabout the truth
  • 00:01:19.162 --> 00:01:21.731
  • of the creation accountin the Bible.
  • 00:01:21.764 --> 00:01:24.767
  • Come along on a fascinatingjourney back in time
  • 00:01:24.801 --> 00:01:28.571
  • and find the true meaningof life.
  • 00:01:28.605 --> 00:01:31.608
  • Ken Ham: We want momsand dads and children
  • 00:01:42.752 --> 00:01:45.188
  • to experience the Bible,it makes the Bible come alive,
  • 00:01:45.221 --> 00:01:47.757
  • and we call it the seven Csof history,
  • 00:01:47.790 --> 00:01:50.160
  • the seven Csin God's eternal plan:
  • 00:01:50.193 --> 00:01:53.096
  • Creation, corruption,catastrophe, confusion,
  • 00:01:53.129 --> 00:01:56.299
  • Genesis 1 to 11.
  • 00:01:56.332 --> 00:01:58.234
  • Christ, cross, consummation.
  • 00:01:58.268 --> 00:01:59.836
  • So, the first C, creation,we come into the garden,
  • 00:01:59.869 --> 00:02:02.772
  • it's beautiful.
  • 00:02:02.805 --> 00:02:04.607
  • There was no death or suffering,there were no thorns.
  • 00:02:04.641 --> 00:02:07.644
  • There weren't any harmfulviruses or harmful bacteria.
  • 00:02:07.677 --> 00:02:12.582
  • There would've been bacteriaand viruses.
  • 00:02:12.615 --> 00:02:14.117
  • Jim: So, you have no death.
  • 00:02:14.150 --> 00:02:15.451
  • Ken: In their perfect functions.
  • 00:02:15.485 --> 00:02:16.786
  • Jim: You have no suffering,no disease
  • 00:02:16.819 --> 00:02:18.121
  • in this perfect creation.
  • 00:02:18.154 --> 00:02:19.789
  • Ken: And you seehow beautiful it is.
  • 00:02:19.822 --> 00:02:21.558
  • There's a lot of subtle thingsin here too.
  • 00:02:21.591 --> 00:02:23.393
  • For instance,Adam is middle brown,
  • 00:02:23.426 --> 00:02:25.528
  • he's not light, he's not dark.
  • 00:02:25.562 --> 00:02:27.564
  • Jim: Okay, so explainwhy you chose that.
  • 00:02:27.597 --> 00:02:30.433
  • Ken: Because when you look atthe range of shades people have,
  • 00:02:30.466 --> 00:02:34.037
  • and I say shades 'causewe're all the same basic color
  • 00:02:34.070 --> 00:02:35.772
  • from a pigment called melanin--
  • 00:02:35.805 --> 00:02:37.807
  • Jim: So, there's reallyno white and
  • 00:02:37.840 --> 00:02:39.142
  • there's really no black.
  • 00:02:39.175 --> 00:02:40.476
  • We're all shades of brown.
  • 00:02:40.510 --> 00:02:41.811
  • Ken: No truly white.
  • 00:02:41.844 --> 00:02:43.379
  • Brown, melanin is the name ofthe pigment that's produced
  • 00:02:43.413 --> 00:02:46.282
  • in our epidermis frommelanocyte cells.
  • 00:02:46.316 --> 00:02:49.052
  • That's the main pigment,there's a couple of forms of it.
  • 00:02:49.085 --> 00:02:51.654
  • And it's a brown pigment.
  • 00:02:51.688 --> 00:02:52.989
  • So, when you look at the geneticvariability today
  • 00:02:53.022 --> 00:02:55.225
  • from light to dark, it sortof makes sense to us
  • 00:02:55.258 --> 00:02:57.794
  • that God put maximum geneticvariability in Adam and Eve,
  • 00:02:57.827 --> 00:03:01.231
  • so it's most likely they weremiddle brown.
  • 00:03:01.264 --> 00:03:03.399
  • So, from middle brown peopleand the genes they had,
  • 00:03:03.433 --> 00:03:06.002
  • you can get the whole rangeof shades that we see today.
  • 00:03:06.035 --> 00:03:09.706
  • And so, as we walk through here,for instance,
  • 00:03:09.739 --> 00:03:11.441
  • you will see a dinosaur.
  • 00:03:11.474 --> 00:03:12.775
  • What, dinosaurs inthe garden of Eden?
  • 00:03:12.809 --> 00:03:14.911
  • Well, God made all the landanimals on day 6.
  • 00:03:14.944 --> 00:03:18.448
  • And in 1841, when the word"dinosaur" was invented,
  • 00:03:18.481 --> 00:03:21.317
  • a certain particular groupof land animals,
  • 00:03:21.351 --> 00:03:24.287
  • that would meanthat those land animals
  • 00:03:24.320 --> 00:03:26.656
  • that we now call dinosaurswere there originally.
  • 00:03:26.689 --> 00:03:29.292
  • And of course when God created.
  • 00:03:29.325 --> 00:03:31.194
  • As we go through here too,we're teaching doctrine.
  • 00:03:31.227 --> 00:03:34.130
  • For instance, with Adam and Eve,God made male and female,
  • 00:03:34.163 --> 00:03:37.734
  • so there's only two genders.
  • 00:03:37.767 --> 00:03:39.802
  • And that was the first marriage.
  • 00:03:39.836 --> 00:03:41.638
  • Man made from dust,
  • 00:03:41.671 --> 00:03:43.406
  • woman from his side,a man and a woman.
  • 00:03:43.439 --> 00:03:45.675
  • We get a lot ofnon-Christians that come here,
  • 00:03:45.708 --> 00:03:47.543
  • and so we're not--we're nottrying to hit them on the head
  • 00:03:47.577 --> 00:03:50.580
  • concerning issuesof gay marriage and abortion,
  • 00:03:50.613 --> 00:03:53.716
  • but what we're doingis giving the foundation
  • 00:03:53.750 --> 00:03:56.152
  • for the right worldview.
  • 00:03:56.185 --> 00:03:58.488
  • And so they--that wouldmake them think
  • 00:03:58.521 --> 00:04:00.256
  • about their worldview.
  • 00:04:00.290 --> 00:04:01.958
  • And so, we go through here,Adam and Eve,
  • 00:04:01.991 --> 00:04:05.128
  • you know, walked with God,but then,
  • 00:04:05.161 --> 00:04:07.130
  • something terrible happened.
  • 00:04:07.163 --> 00:04:08.998
  • Jim: Do you ever think as yougo through something like this,
  • 00:04:09.032 --> 00:04:11.668
  • so beautiful and so peaceful,what it's going to be like
  • 00:04:11.701 --> 00:04:14.570
  • one day when all sin is putdown, rebellion is put down,
  • 00:04:14.604 --> 00:04:18.041
  • and we're recreated?
  • 00:04:18.074 --> 00:04:19.575
  • Ken: Well, you know, we'refallen beings in a fallen world.
  • 00:04:19.609 --> 00:04:21.477
  • And I often thought about that,and I think about the fact no
  • 00:04:21.511 --> 00:04:24.147
  • matter how much we try to thinkabout what a perfect world
  • 00:04:24.180 --> 00:04:26.449
  • is like, I don't think we havemuch concept at all.
  • 00:04:26.482 --> 00:04:29.919
  • We get a little glimpse.
  • 00:04:29.952 --> 00:04:31.321
  • You know, that's why we didthis with the garden
  • 00:04:31.354 --> 00:04:33.089
  • as you walk through, but--
  • 00:04:33.122 --> 00:04:35.958
  • Jim: But something happens,and this is--this is how
  • 00:04:35.992 --> 00:04:38.461
  • we can understand pain,suffering, evil, disease.
  • 00:04:38.494 --> 00:04:42.765
  • Everything comesto this one moment,
  • 00:04:42.799 --> 00:04:45.435
  • which is pretty early onafter creation.
  • 00:04:45.468 --> 00:04:47.804
  • What is your best guessfrom creation till this fall?
  • 00:04:47.837 --> 00:04:52.975
  • Ken: It had tobe fairly quick,
  • 00:04:53.009 --> 00:04:54.644
  • I think, because Adamand Eve had children,
  • 00:04:54.677 --> 00:04:59.549
  • but they're all born in sin,so it had to be
  • 00:04:59.582 --> 00:05:00.917
  • before Eve conceived.
  • 00:05:00.950 --> 00:05:03.619
  • So, I think it was fairly quick.
  • 00:05:03.653 --> 00:05:04.954
  • I don't think ittook long at all.
  • 00:05:04.987 --> 00:05:06.889
  • This is the tree of theknowledge of good and evil.
  • 00:05:06.923 --> 00:05:09.892
  • And so, here yousee Adam and Eve,
  • 00:05:09.926 --> 00:05:11.694
  • and you see theserpent in the tree.
  • 00:05:11.728 --> 00:05:13.629
  • By the way, people often ask us,"How come the serpent doesn't
  • 00:05:13.663 --> 00:05:16.332
  • have legs?"
  • 00:05:16.366 --> 00:05:17.734
  • And we say, "Show us in theBible where it says that serpent
  • 00:05:17.767 --> 00:05:19.869
  • has legs."
  • 00:05:19.902 --> 00:05:21.437
  • You know it doesn't say in theBible that serpent had legs?
  • 00:05:21.471 --> 00:05:23.773
  • It just says, "As a resultof the fall, you know,
  • 00:05:23.806 --> 00:05:26.876
  • you will eat dust for the restof your life and so on."
  • 00:05:26.909 --> 00:05:29.946
  • So, we deliberately do this tomake people ask that question.
  • 00:05:29.979 --> 00:05:32.815
  • ♪♪♪
  • 00:05:33.816 --> 00:05:43.793
  • So, now we come to thesecond C, so this is corruption.
  • 00:05:43.826 --> 00:05:48.798
  • So, man fell, the rejection ofGod's Word leads to corruption.
  • 00:05:48.831 --> 00:05:53.970
  • Jim: And this isintentionally dark
  • 00:05:54.003 --> 00:05:56.539
  • and dreary in here--
  • 00:05:56.572 --> 00:05:58.741
  • Ken: As youwalk through here,
  • 00:05:58.775 --> 00:06:00.510
  • you see Adam and Eve andtaking the fruit here.
  • 00:06:00.543 --> 00:06:04.414
  • And then we get tothe Cave of Sorrows.
  • 00:06:04.447 --> 00:06:08.818
  • We want people to understandall this death and suffering
  • 00:06:08.851 --> 00:06:12.755
  • we see in the world today,it's not God's fault,
  • 00:06:12.789 --> 00:06:14.657
  • it's our faultbecause we sinned in Adam.
  • 00:06:14.690 --> 00:06:17.827
  • Jim: And you haveRomans 5:12,
  • 00:06:17.860 --> 00:06:19.562
  • which is talking about oneman's sin entering to the world,
  • 00:06:19.595 --> 00:06:22.098
  • and death by sin has passedupon all men.
  • 00:06:22.131 --> 00:06:24.867
  • Ken: In Romans 8,the whole of creation groans
  • 00:06:24.901 --> 00:06:27.270
  • because of sin.
  • 00:06:27.303 --> 00:06:28.871
  • And so, we pictureterrible things, even, you know,
  • 00:06:28.905 --> 00:06:31.107
  • the World Trade Center,the twin towers.
  • 00:06:31.140 --> 00:06:34.444
  • Jim: I'm sure that day isimpressed in your mind
  • 00:06:34.477 --> 00:06:36.879
  • as it is in mine.
  • 00:06:36.913 --> 00:06:38.648
  • And the Holocaustis depicted here.
  • 00:06:38.681 --> 00:06:40.883
  • We have these horrible thingsthat have happened,
  • 00:06:40.917 --> 00:06:43.052
  • but it does help usto understand it
  • 00:06:43.085 --> 00:06:45.288
  • because of corruption,because of the fall.
  • 00:06:45.321 --> 00:06:48.858
  • Ken: And you notice howwe keep this very up to date.
  • 00:06:48.891 --> 00:06:51.427
  • You know, artists are alwaysputting up new signs and so on
  • 00:06:51.461 --> 00:06:54.430
  • to make sure--
  • 00:06:54.464 --> 00:06:55.798
  • Jim: Because we alwayshave the latest catastrophe
  • 00:06:55.832 --> 00:06:57.133
  • happening.
  • 00:06:57.166 --> 00:06:58.468
  • Ken: We do, and for people torecognize the world we live in
  • 00:06:58.501 --> 00:07:00.736
  • is a fallen world.
  • 00:07:00.770 --> 00:07:02.405
  • And we have video playinghere of atrocities and so on.
  • 00:07:02.438 --> 00:07:05.842
  • But then we come to a sectionwhere we have the first
  • 00:07:05.875 --> 00:07:10.279
  • blood sacrifice as a coveringfor their sin.
  • 00:07:10.313 --> 00:07:12.648
  • Actually, it's the originof clothing,
  • 00:07:12.682 --> 00:07:14.217
  • the very first blood sacrifice,a covering for their sin,
  • 00:07:14.250 --> 00:07:16.853
  • a picture of what wasto come in Jesus Christ,
  • 00:07:16.886 --> 00:07:18.821
  • the Lamb of God who takesaway the sin of the world.
  • 00:07:18.855 --> 00:07:20.456
  • So, what we're actually sayingis 'cause if you look
  • 00:07:20.490 --> 00:07:22.391
  • at Genesis 3:15,it's the promise of the Savior.
  • 00:07:22.425 --> 00:07:25.962
  • We know thatas we look back at that,
  • 00:07:25.995 --> 00:07:27.864
  • or the proto gospelas people call it.
  • 00:07:27.897 --> 00:07:29.732
  • Genesis 3:21,the first blood sacrifice,
  • 00:07:29.765 --> 00:07:32.268
  • setting up the sacrificialsystem to lead to
  • 00:07:32.301 --> 00:07:36.606
  • the ultimate sacrifice, the onewho died once and for all.
  • 00:07:36.639 --> 00:07:39.075
  • So, now there's a promise,all these bad things,
  • 00:07:39.108 --> 00:07:41.978
  • ah, but God has a solution.
  • 00:07:42.011 --> 00:07:44.447
  • Jim: Well, this first sacrificemust've been very poignant
  • 00:07:44.480 --> 00:07:47.016
  • to Adam and Eve 'causethey had never experienced
  • 00:07:47.049 --> 00:07:50.052
  • death, especially the deathof an innocent animal.
  • 00:07:50.086 --> 00:07:53.990
  • That animal didn't do anything.
  • 00:07:54.023 --> 00:07:55.892
  • So, now because of our sinand rebellion,
  • 00:07:55.925 --> 00:07:58.995
  • now this innocent is dying,a picture of what is to come.
  • 00:07:59.028 --> 00:08:02.565
  • Ken: Exactly.
  • 00:08:02.598 --> 00:08:03.966
  • Just a little funny aside here,because those animals
  • 00:08:04.000 --> 00:08:06.168
  • are skinned 'cause God tooktheir skins and made clothes
  • 00:08:06.202 --> 00:08:09.305
  • out of them, that's the reasonwe wear clothes.

  • 00:16:42.999 --> 00:16:45.501
  • Jim: But it all comes downto this point of who is Jesus?
  • 00:16:45.535 --> 00:16:48.971
  • Who do you say that he is?
  • 00:16:49.005 --> 00:16:51.040
  • And we have to hopefullyrespond with he is the Christ,
  • 00:16:51.074 --> 00:16:54.711
  • the Son of God, who diedon a cross for my sins
  • 00:16:54.744 --> 00:16:57.647
  • and rose again.
  • 00:16:57.680 --> 00:16:58.981
  • I trust in him.
  • 00:16:59.015 --> 00:17:00.316
  • And the Bible says that personhas right now eternal life.
  • 00:17:00.349 --> 00:17:03.352
  • That's hope,that's the only hope.
  • 00:17:03.386 --> 00:17:05.188
  • Ken: And that'swhat it's all about.
  • 00:17:05.221 --> 00:17:06.622
  • You know, as a ministry, we sawno point in just having,
  • 00:17:06.656 --> 00:17:09.992
  • you know, creation versusevolution museum.
  • 00:17:10.026 --> 00:17:12.228
  • We deal with creationand evolution,
  • 00:17:12.261 --> 00:17:14.564
  • but it's really a walk throughthe Bible to present the gospel
  • 00:17:14.597 --> 00:17:16.899
  • to challenge people.
  • 00:17:16.933 --> 00:17:18.568
  • History in the Bible is true,that's why the gospel based
  • 00:17:18.601 --> 00:17:20.570
  • in that history is true.
  • 00:17:20.603 --> 00:17:22.171
  • And to equip Christians withanswers to defend the Christian
  • 00:17:22.205 --> 00:17:24.741
  • faith, and to help parents tobring their children to raise
  • 00:17:24.774 --> 00:17:28.911
  • them up to be godly offspring,to understand the Bible,
  • 00:17:28.945 --> 00:17:32.448
  • and this really does help bringthe Bible alive to such.
  • 00:17:32.482 --> 00:17:36.185
  • Jim: Amen.
  • 00:17:36.219 --> 00:17:37.787
  • Hey, one last question,I saw ziplines.
  • 00:17:37.820 --> 00:17:40.857
  • Have you done them?
  • 00:17:40.890 --> 00:17:42.191
  • Ken: Actually, I have.
  • 00:17:42.225 --> 00:17:43.526
  • The ziplines here atthe Creation Museum,
  • 00:17:43.559 --> 00:17:45.027
  • there's about 27 ziplines,and they go through the trees.
  • 00:17:45.061 --> 00:17:47.396
  • Down at the ark, the ziplinesgo across the valleys,
  • 00:17:47.430 --> 00:17:50.099
  • and some of them are upto 2.000 feet long.
  • 00:17:50.133 --> 00:17:52.535
  • You know what?
  • 00:17:52.568 --> 00:17:54.103
  • We want people to know thatthere's a family friendly place
  • 00:17:54.137 --> 00:17:58.341
  • they can come to have fun,but to learn about God's Word,
  • 00:17:58.374 --> 00:18:02.645
  • to learn about Jesus, but theycan have fun as a family too.
  • 00:18:02.678 --> 00:18:05.848
  • And so, we also haveanimal programs,
  • 00:18:05.882 --> 00:18:09.852
  • live animal programs.
  • 00:18:09.886 --> 00:18:11.254
  • And particularly downat the ark,
  • 00:18:11.287 --> 00:18:12.822
  • where we have a big zoo.
  • 00:18:12.855 --> 00:18:14.157
  • And we have all sorts of liveanimal programs and camel rides.

  • attractions in the world.
  • 00:18:20.730 --> 00:18:22.732
  • Jim: Well, Ken, I--on behalfof Christians in America,
  • 00:18:22.999 --> 00:18:25.234
  • I thank you for your vision,your stand.
  • 00:18:25.268 --> 00:18:27.336
  • You're just saying, "No,the Word of God is true.
  • 00:18:27.370 --> 00:18:30.339
  • Let's stand on it,and let's teach it,
  • 00:18:30.373 --> 00:18:32.241
  • and let's believe it."
  • 00:18:32.275 --> 00:18:33.743
  • Thank you for all that you do,God bless you.
  • 00:18:33.776 --> 00:18:35.278
  • Ken: Appreciate it.
  • 00:18:35.311 --> 00:18:37.180
  • ♪♪♪
  • 00:18:37.213 --> 00:18:47.223
  • Jim: I hope that this tourof not only the museum,
  • 00:18:48.891 --> 00:18:52.061
  • but of the experiences hereat the Creation Museum
  • 00:18:52.094 --> 00:18:55.331
  • encourage you to come here.
  • 00:18:55.364 --> 00:18:57.733
  • But this was a poignant momentwhen we walked through
  • 00:18:57.767 --> 00:19:00.069
  • the museum and we just see theproblem that sin has caused,
  • 00:19:00.102 --> 00:19:04.574
  • and the hurt, and the pain,and the sorrow.
  • 00:19:04.607 --> 00:19:07.043
  • And it all comes down to this,the sacrifice.
  • 00:19:07.076 --> 00:19:12.415
  • The sacrifice that God made,the first sacrifice
  • 00:19:12.448 --> 00:19:16.252
  • for Adam and Eve.
  • 00:19:16.285 --> 00:19:18.120
  • And that sacrificial systemcontinued on
  • 00:19:18.154 --> 00:19:20.022
  • all through the centuries.
  • 00:19:20.056 --> 00:19:22.625
  • And you see Noah,and you see Abraham,
  • 00:19:22.658 --> 00:19:24.760
  • and the Jewish peopleoffering the sacrifices.
  • 00:19:24.794 --> 00:19:27.997
  • It all pointed to one sacrifice,his name is Jesus.
  • 00:19:28.030 --> 00:19:33.002
  • John the Baptist declared Jesusas the Lamb of God that
  • 00:19:33.035 --> 00:19:36.205
  • takes away the sin of the world.
  • 00:19:36.239 --> 00:19:38.774
  • Up until now, the bloodsacrifices were just covering,
  • 00:19:38.808 --> 00:19:42.245
  • it's actually called a kipurra,or you've heard of Yom Kippur.
  • 00:19:42.278 --> 00:19:46.782
  • A kippura is a covering,but Jesus came to take away
  • 00:19:46.816 --> 00:19:50.920
  • the sin of the world.
  • 00:19:50.953 --> 00:19:53.456
  • This is the moment thatwe make "In Grace" for,
  • 00:19:53.489 --> 00:19:56.893
  • is this moment to invite youto say,
  • 00:19:56.926 --> 00:19:59.562
  • "I'm a sinner andI can't save myself.
  • 00:19:59.595 --> 00:20:01.397
  • But right now, I put my trustin Jesus Christ."
  • 00:20:01.430 --> 00:20:04.166
  • Let me show it to you this way.
  • 00:20:04.200 --> 00:20:05.768
  • This is all of us,we all have sinned.
  • 00:20:05.801 --> 00:20:09.405
  • We've all fallen shortof the glory of God.
  • 00:20:09.438 --> 00:20:11.774
  • This is God who is perfectand holy,
  • 00:20:11.807 --> 00:20:14.043
  • and our sin separates usfrom him.
  • 00:20:14.076 --> 00:20:16.178
  • What are we going to do?
  • 00:20:16.212 --> 00:20:17.713
  • We can't get ridof this ourself,
  • 00:20:17.747 --> 00:20:19.315
  • our sin separates us from God.
  • 00:20:19.348 --> 00:20:21.550
  • We need a perfect sacrifice,not just a covering,
  • 00:20:21.584 --> 00:20:25.321
  • we need an expiator.
  • 00:20:25.354 --> 00:20:27.723
  • We need someoneto take away our sin.
  • 00:20:27.757 --> 00:20:29.859
  • And Jesus, who was perfect,came and died on a cross
  • 00:20:29.892 --> 00:20:33.129
  • for our sins.
  • 00:20:33.162 --> 00:20:35.164
  • The Son of God died in our placeand rose again the third day,
  • 00:20:35.197 --> 00:20:38.434
  • and here's the invitationfor you.
  • 00:20:38.467 --> 00:20:40.970
  • Put your trust in him.
  • 00:20:41.003 --> 00:20:43.139
  • Jesus said, "Believe on meand you will have eternal life."
  • 00:20:43.172 --> 00:20:47.310
  • That's what we have to do.
  • 00:20:47.343 --> 00:20:49.045
  • It's not about religion,it's not about works,
  • 00:20:49.078 --> 00:20:50.780
