  1. Matt, are you already admitted to the Phd program?

    I like your future vision of wanting to plant churches and train pastor/elders.

    We are heading out in about 11 months (God willing) to do this: http://www.JacobsWellNJ.org

    I would love to connect with you some more. I am still poking away at my MDiv – not in a rush, but I am in Louisville from time to time.

    Nice blog redesign.

  2. Matt,
    Greetings. I enjoyed taking a look at your blog site. It’s an excellent resource. I noticed that you have very much about ID and little (that I could find) about young-Earth creation, a literal interpretation of LGensis 1-11, no death before the Fall, the explosion of culture just after creation (Gen. 4), the global flood that destroyed the world that then was, the unity of the language until Babel, etc. I did not see any website links for
    1. Answers in Genesis http://www.answersingenesis.org
    2. Creation Ministries International http://www.creationontheweb.com
    3. Center for Scientfic Creation (Dr. Walter Brown)
    http://www.creationscience.com
    4. Creation Studies Institute (Tom DeRosa)
    http://www.creationstudies.org
    5. Institute for Creation Research http://www.icr.org

    Would you be interested in adding some of these sites to your various resource lists? Mark Driscoll, an outspoken OECist, has a wide array of “creation science” books and links on his website.

    Thanks,
    Jon Orcutt
