Philippians 4:8, "Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things."

We have been eagerly anticipated the Discovery Channel's 11 part series, "The Planet Earth." Last night we watched the first three hours, and thoroughly enjoyed every minute. It was the best photography of a nature show we had ever seen - wow! There was more than one moment of such awesome beauty that it brought emotion and we all verbalized our praise of the Creator.

Near the end of the third hour I prepared my family for the inevitable: the pagan push. I was looking at it philosophically as a teaching opportunity, telling everyone to be ready for the smearing of the lines between creature and creator, and man and nature, and instead hearing the philosophy of evolution and the associated pagan doctrines. I was pleasantly surprised to hear instead the concept of the sovereignty of man, and how the fate of nature depends on the care of man. This clearly marked the distinction between man and nature. I genuinely hope this will continue.
