Home Confinement

Update from Eric Hovind

We received an update regarding my Dad’s release. According to his latest review meeting, he will be sent to home confinement for a period of six months on February 11, 2015. Dad continues to request that 6 months of Half-Way House time be added to that, as the BOP regulations permit up to one year of Half-Way House time on a ten-year sentence. However, the BOP regulations do not require them to grant a full year. It is a discretionary decision that lies in the hands of the BOP Administration.

Dad also continues requesting a furlough transfer closer to home. He is currently still in Berlin, New Hampshire, over 1,500 miles from Pensacola.

All for HIS glory,

Christmas

About a week before Christmas as a man walked down the street, he noticed a sign in a store window that said, “Merry Xmas!” Being an algebra teacher, he walked in, found the store owner and said, “Excuse me, sir. Is there some sort of prize for the one who can solve the equation?”

With knitted eyebrows, the owner gave the teacher a puzzled look and asked, “What equation are you talking about, sir?”

The teacher replied, “Why, the one in 12-inch letters in your front window.”

The store owner looked at the window like a calf lookin’ at a new gate.

The teacher continued, “Your sign says, ‘Merry Xmas.’ I teach algebra. I can solve the X for you. It’s Jesus! Andrew told his brother Peter about Jesus when he said, ‘We have found the Messiah which is, being interpreted, the Christ.’ It’s pretty simple, sir. Jesus Christ is what is missing on your window. Is He missing from your heart, too?”

Eyes wide open, the store keeper looked like he had seen a ghost. Finally, he lowered his head and softly said, “Yes, I’m afraid he is. I wish I could find him.”

The teacher reached in his pocket and pulled out a New Testament. In a matter of minutes the algebra teacher led the man to Jesus.

The store owner said, “I think I’ll get some soap and water and fix that sign right now! Thanks for helping me find the answer to the equation. It is easy to solve now that I think about it. Jesus has been missing from my life for a long time. Thanks for stopping.”

How about you? Is Jesus missing from your life? Is He missing from the life of someone in your family or your neighbor? Have you led ANYONE to Jesus this year? We are about out-a-year, ya know. Let’s find somebody soon. If ya can’t get a big one, then get a little one. Somebody is HOPING that somebody will care enough to tell them.

Psalm 142:4 “I looked on my right hand, and beheld, but there was no man that would know me: refuge failed me; no man cared for my soul.”

Merry CHRISTmas!

Open letter to House speaker John Boehner and all US Congressmen

Open letter to House speaker John Boehner and all US Congressmen,

HOLD FIRM! NO TAX INCREASE FOR ANYONE! NO increase in the Debt ceiling! The government needs more money “from the rich” like a drug addict needs “one more fix” before he decides to quit or an alcoholic needs “one more beer” before he starts to sober up! STOP RIGHT NOW!

It should be obvious to anyone with one eye and half a brain that the REAL goal in all this political posturing by Barak Obama and many Democrats is simply the advancement of Communism in America. I don’t understand how ANYONE- Republican, Democratic or Independent can want to increase “revenues” even one more dime! There is a spending problem not a revenue problem but it goes even deeper than that!

The entire idea of “take from the rich and ‘redistribute’ to the poor” is pure Communism 101. Go to ANY communist country to see how they got there and the end result. They always follow Karl Marx’s thinking and the idea that you take two steps forward and one step back. Everyone thinks they backed up but they are actually one step closer to the goal! That is all Barak is doing. Don’t “compromise” ONE INCH!

Everyone in Congress, the Senate and the Executive branch (and judicial branch!) took an oath to follow and defend the U. S. Constitution. I would suggest they ALL get it off the shelf, dust it off and read it. It’s only a few pages long. It gives the clear limits of government. I can solve the financial crisis in 10 minutes! Follow the Constitution! Why are “The Feds” involved in: education? a war on drugs? foreign wars that don’t involve us? welfare of any kind? medical decisions of any kind?

You should follow the Constitution and “coin money” and shut down the mis-named “Federal Reserve” and put us on a real money basis. Why do you let private bankers print our “money?” Shut down about 95% of all government programs and lay off about 95% of the government workers and release all federal prisoners who did commit a crime on federal property like Post Offices and Military bases and scale the Fed WAY back to what the founders envisioned. Stop calling ANYTHING an “entitlement.” There are NO entitlements. No one is “entitled” to welfare, Social Security, Obama Care, Medicare, education or 1,000 other programs at the federal level. If ANY program cannot be found in the Constitution you swore to uphold, shut it down. Stop funding it! That is your job. That would “balance the budget” in 10 minutes!

There you have it. Everyone else seems to be giving their ideas on the fiscal cliff so I’d throw in my 2 cent’s worth. We went over the cliff MANY years ago. The ONLY solution to America’s SERIOUS problems is found in II Chronicles 7:14. Our problem is spiritual and the solution is spiritual not political. We need to return to our godly heritage. God would have spared Sodom if He could have found 10 righteous people. Are there 10 in Congress? The Senate? In the Executive branch? Judicial? I pray so!

The founders knew that power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely. They also knew the power to tax is the power to destroy. They gave CLEAR instructions in the Constitution about taxes and what the federal government could and could not do. Go to www.wallbuilders.com and read what the founders said. They gave great advice for times like these!

Speaker Boehner, you folks in Congress are supposed to control the purse strings. Well, DO YOUR JOB PLEASE! Don’t vote for ANY spending outside the limits of the very document you swore to uphold. If the president wants to go over the cliff, let him. DON’T have your fingerprints ANYPLACE ON IT PLEASE! We need Statesmen NOT politicians! Ignore the polls, the Senate, the media, the critics and follow the Constitution please. For all of us!

The Mayans Should Have Gotten A Bigger Rock

BROTHER HOVIND!!! Is Dec. 21, 2012 the End of the World? That’s when the Mayan calendar runs out!

Ahhhhh, NO! The Mayans should have gotten a bigger rock, that’s all.

Dec 21 is NOT the end of the world but it IS the first day you can watch an exciting new movie about the end times on youtube for free! :) Go to www.afterthetribulation.com for details. To be forewarned is to be forearmed. PLEASE tell EVERYONE you know (or can get to know by then) that they NEED to watch this film and get ready for what is coming! Maybe get it on DVD for a belated Christmas present?

My longtime friend and Pastor, Steve Anderson and THOUSANDS of others (myself included) have come to realize that we “independent, fundamental, temperamental, right wing, radical, chicken eatin’, Bible believing Baptists” have been deceived about the rapture for the last 180 years! For 38 years of my Christian life I was taught and believed in the “pre-trib” rapture idea that was made up by a 15 year Scottish old girl in 1830! I just trusted the “prophecy experts” to have studied it and to know what they were teaching. NOT a good idea! “Study to shew YOURSELVES approved unto God…” Hmmm? I failed at that on this topic! Not any more though!

II Thes. 2:1-3 says the Day of Christ (the day of the rapture–NOT “Day of the Lord” as in NIV and others!) CANNOT come until two things happen: A great falling away and the man of sin (antichrist) is revealed. I see now why Satan has pushed so-o-o-o-o-o-o hard to deceive people about the timing of the rapture! So-o-o-o-o-o many are waiting for the Lord to come and rapture us out before things get bad. That is NOT gonna happen and Jesus NEVER said it would! He said, “In the world ye SHALL HAVE TRIBULATION…” Jn. 16:1-4, 33. (BTW- DON’T confuse tribulation with wrath!)

Why don’t you tell the Christians being killed by the hundreds TODAY in various parts of the world that “we will not be here for the tribulation.” (See persecution.com) Tell them, “God would never let His church go through suffering.” Ahhhhh, WRONG! Study the history of the 2,000 year trail of blood Christ’s Church has endured. It will be here in America SOON! I predict that because of the disillusionment over the false pre-trib doctrine that MILLIONS of believers right here in America will “fall away” from their faith and even turn other believers and their own family in to be imprisoned or killed just as Jesus warned us would happen in Mt. 24; Mk. 13 and Lk 21! Better read II Peter 3 CAREFULLY!

If you were a Jew living in Germany in 1933 and could see the future, what would you have done? If you were living before the Great Depression in 1929 and could know what was about to happen, what would you have done? If you were living in NJ on the beach before Superstorm Sandy hit and could see the future, what would you do? Well, we have a Book that tells us what is about to happen AND what we should do about it. That’s what this film is about! Watch it and get ready.

This is NOT the time to be scared or panic. 365 times the Bible says, “fear not…” This IS a GOOD time to get SERIOUS with your Bible reading AND your relationship with God! This would also be a great time to quit playing with that stupid ball (ANY ball) and win souls! (I been sayin THAT for YEARS!) This WILL be a GREAT time to win crowns! (Rev 2-3) Jesus told us to REJOICE in persecutions because GREAT is our reward! (He knows things that we don’t :) )

Anyway, I can’t see the movie from here (unless I win my case and go home before that!) so please watch it and tell me what you think. If I can encourage you to stay true to the Lord in the coming persecution it helps me get the Dan. 12:3 prize! You can have the prize too! Mark Dec 21 on your calendar now and make a list of folks to blast an email, tweet, phone call, telegram, yell over the fence, etc to on that day to remind them to watch it as well!

I’ll see you at the finish line! It’s closer than you think! :)

A “Science Guy” Against Science?

Written September 1, 2012

This rebuttal is my response to an article written on Bill Nye, the Science Guy. I have responded paragraph by paragraph to Mr. Hallowell’s article on Mr. Nye.

Billy Hallowell, “Scientist Bill Nye Hammers Creationists: Evolution-Deniers ‘Hold Everybody Back,‘ Harm Children’s Education & Hold Views That Will Eventually Be Extinct,” The Blaze, August 27, 2012.

Bill Nye was once beloved for being America s brightest and most energetic “science guy.” However, the former children s show host (“Bill Nye the Science Guy” aired from 1993 until 1998) is entering more contentious ground of late, as he recently jumped into the political realm to intensely support President Barack Obama s re-election campaign.

The adjectives used by some to describe Bill Nye include bright and energetic. History records lots of people who were “bright” and “energetic” but were WRONG. Hmmm? Let’s see: Hitler, Pol Pot, Stalin, Mao, Voltaire, Osama bin Laden to name a FEW who were zealous for the wrong cause. Let’s remember that “bright and energetic” does NOT = right!

But, politics isn’t his only area of interest these days. Last week, the famed scientist lashed out against champions of creationism. In a new video for Big Think, an online educational forum, Nye claims that evolution deniers are damaging children and harming scientific progress.

“Evolution deniers?” Do ya see any prejudice in THAT statement? Before we can decide if we “deny” evolution, we need to understand the terms. Bill needs to define the word evolution first in order for folks to know if they want to “deny” it or not! I have been through this important define-the-terms step in all 100 debates I did with evolutionists at various universities as well as thousands of Q&A sessions. I encourage students and teachers everywhere to carefully define the word evolution BEFORE they enter into a discussion on evolution, so everyone knows what they are discussing. It is futile to proceed until the terms are defined. The problem (intentional?) is that the word “evolution” actually has six meanings or levels or stages:

  1. Cosmic evolution: the origin of time/space/matter from nothing in the supposed “Big Bang”
  2. Chemical evolution: all the elements “evolved” from hydrogen
  3. Stellar evolution: stars formed from dust clouds
  4. Organic evolution: life formed from non-living matter
  5. Macro-evolution: plants and animals produce offspring different than their ‘kind’
  6. Micro-evolution: variations develop within the kind such as big dogs and little dogs; bacteria becoming resistant to drugs; etc.



Only ONE of these definitions for evolution is true SCIENCE—Number 6. The first five are part of a RELIGION that adherents must “believe” in since they have NEVER been observed or demonstrated. Bill is guilty of mixing these definitions indiscriminately. He (along with many science books) sees and shows lots of evidence for definition #6 with which I agree, but then ASSUMES that this is evidence for the first five. That is NOT good science, Bill! The variations we all observe and that every farmer on planet earth understands and uses does NOT offer ANY evidence for the first five definitions of evolution.

Of course, Bill is welcome to BELIEVE the first five definitions, but he should be honest and stop trying to deceive people into thinking they are also part of science. Only #6, micro-evolution can be observed and demonstrated, the criteria for provable science. Creationists do NOT “deny” that there is evidence for evolution definition #6, but we DO deny there is any “scientific” evidence for the first five. Bill should plainly and honestly admit his use of the word evolution is religious. He is free to promulgate his religious views on his own dime, but he should not be allowed to use tax payer money to teach his mixed definitions of evolution as science in tax funded programs. Bill is the one who is “damaging children” and “harming the scientific process” when he confuses the terms and evidence!

The video, which was posted last Thursday, has already been viewed more than one million times. Entitled, “Creationism Is Not Appropriate for Children,” the clip holds little back when it comes to the scientist’s views on evolutionary denial. In the video, Nye takes particular issue with the fact that America is the only nation in which creationism is so widely embraced.

Millions of copies of our Creation Seminar Series are circling the globe in over 30 languages (see: www.creationtoday.org) so Bill needs to get busy! Bill is the one in denial. The evidence for a Designer is OVERWHELMING at ALL levels through the microscope or telescope. The verse in 2 Peter 3:15 describes it perfectly—”willingly ignorant…”! Does Bill need to light a candle to see the sun?

“Denial of evolution is unique to the United States,” he said. “People still move to the United States. And that’s largely because of the intellectual capital we have, the general understanding of science.”

Beer is often sold at football games. Beer has NOTHING to do with football and beer does NOT ever produce better athletes by frequent association with football. It is true that the evolution religion is unfortunately often mixed with science books, but it will never become science by virtue of frequent association with real science. Evolution needs to be taught in a RELIGION class at school or maybe an “ancient mythology” class, but NOT in a SCIENCE class.

His qualms with individuals who don t embrace the notion that human beings evolved goes well beyond mere theological and scientific disagreement. Nye believes that those who tout creationism are actually doing damage to scientific progression.

All through history there have been FALSE notions that hindered or damaged scientific advancement. For instance, the geocentric theory made it very hard to advance astronomy. Today, evolution is one of the greatest hindrances to the advancement of science. See the video “Expelled” with Ben Stein for many examples.

“When you have a portion of the population that doesn’t believe in that, it holds everybody back, really,” he said, going on to say that it’s difficult to make sense of life and to attain the proper answers if one denies the scientific theory. “Evolution is the fundamental idea in all of life science — in all of biology.”

This is a crazy statement for an otherwise intelligent man to make! It was the belief in creation and design in nature that was the driving force behind the founding and advancement of EVERY branch of science over the last 400 years. It is the religion of evolution that is the obstacle today. DESIGN is the fundamental idea in all of science—NOT evolution! The evolution theory has done nothing in the advancement of science. Revelation 12:9 says Satan “deceiveth the whole world.” You have been deceived, Bill. Open your eyes before it is t-o-o-o-o-o late!

Bill’s statement, “Evolution is the fundamental idea in all of life science and all of biology” is not only unprovable and wrong, it is standard dogma for his followers. I have often said that even if evolution, as in the first five definitions, were true, it has NOTHING to do with any real practical science. In addition to being harmful to the advancement of science, evolution is a USELESS theory!

Nye went on to plead with parents — even those who “deny evolution” and live in a “world that’s completely inconsistent with everything we observe in the universe” — to properly educate their children.

I agree! Parents need to “properly educate their children.” This would include teaching them the truth about evolution in order to prepare them to face the zealots who peddle their evolution religion under the guise of science. Part Four of The Creation Seminar entitled, “Lies in the Textbooks,” and my books: Help! I’m Being Taught Evolution in my Earth Science Class!, and, Help! I’m Being Taught Evolution in my Biology Class! would be a great start for curriculum!

“We need scientifically literate voters and taxpayers for the future. We need people that can — we need engineers that can build stuff, solve problems,” he added.

“We need scientifically literate voters and taxpayers in the future.” Hmmm? Are these Bill’s code words to say that anyone who does NOT fall for his religion should NOT be allowed to vote, should not be allowed to earn a living, or maybe even, not allowed to live on planet earth? What engineer uses any of the ideas of the evolution religion in his work, Bill?

“In another couple centuries that worldview, I’m sure just won’t exist,” Nye concluded. “There’s no evidence for it.”

Future? I think it was Voltaire who said something similar. He said that in the future, no one would believe the Bible. Sometime after that Voltaire’s house was used to store Bibles to ship to missionaries! Nietzsche said, “God is dead!” Hmmm? I think God would say, “Nietzsche is dead!”

As noted, Nye has been speaking out fervently for President Obama’s re-election campaign and, as Inquisitr has noted, he’s been stumping for him.

Isn’t it revealing that a guy who believes he came from a rock and that there are therefore no moral absolutes would be for Obama? What morals does a rock, or more recently, a monkey, have? Hmmm? Makes ya think about this election! Truly the god of this world, Satan, has blinded the minds of many. Second Corinthians 4:4 says, “In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.”

Proverbs 28:2 also gives us a timely warning: “For the transgression of the land, many are the princes thereof.” We have LOTS of politicians and government bureaucrats telling us how to run our lives in every detail because we are a wicked nation! God is giving us what we DESERVE not what we WANT. America has SERIOUS problems that will NOT be fixed by this (or any) election. I think 2 Chronicles 7:14 is the ONLY fix for this problem! Read that verse carefully! God is waiting for HIS people to do right.

Remember Stalin said, “He who votes is not important. He who counts the votes is important!”

When I am released, my offer still stands. I will debate any ten evolutionists, including Bill Nye, at any time on three simple conditions:

  1. The Creationist side gets half the time.
  2. We talk about one topic at a time.
  3. Either side can video the debate and distribute it, unedited, except for adding in visuals or PowerPoint slides.



I would love to see Bill’s (or anyone else’s) best evidences for any of the first five definitions of evolution. Looks to me like anyone with one eye and half a brain can see that “God created the Heaven and the earth.”

BTW, world events s-u-u-u-r-e make ya think we are getting close to the end just as the Bible predicted. Meanwhile — WIN SOULS!

See ya at the finish line!

Open Letter to Elizabeth ~ Soul Winning

Dear Elizabeth,

Thanks for your kind comments. Your blog post covers a subject that is timeless—soul winning.

In your blog post you said, “You have such a good attitude about soul-winning. I wish I always had a good attitude about it.” Then you describe some discouraging moments you had going door to door soul-winning. I won’t retype your whole blog because: a) I type slow; b) Anyone can read them on line; c) Others are waiting on the typewriter as we have only two working typewriters here for 550 men; and, d) My back hurts when I sit for long periods of time since I broke it once, had whiplash twice, and slide on it way too much. Baptists not only believe in backsliding, we practice it! :)

Here are some of my random thoughts about soul-winning prompted by your post:

1. The Bible says in Proverbs 11:30, “He that winneth souls is wise.” Daniel 12:3 also says, “They that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever.” From these passages, I get the idea that a wise man wins souls (or tries to) and a fool does not. We need to ask God for wisdom and win souls (James 1:5)!

2. Spreading the gospel and winning souls is a command of the Lord (Mt. 28:19-20; Mk. 16:15-20; Acts 1:8). Just do it.

3. You don’t have to feel any love for the world or the lost. That may or may not come. Jonah hated the people God sent him to. (Jonah 4). The Bible says, “God so loved the world…” (Jn. 3:16). I don’t have to love them. God does. I love God, so witnessing is done because of love for and obedience to God; not always from a love for the lost.

4. You mention “always” having a good attitude about it. Forget it. I often do NOT have a good attitude about it but do it anyway. God is the Boss. I am His servant. (I am NOT His “slave” as most new perversions say. A slave has no choice. I am a voluntary servant. See Ex. 21:1-6.) I don’t always have a good attitude about being God’s servant either. I read His Word and try to follow it but there is no compulsion. Follow God if you want. The same mentality applies to scores of other relationships. God gave commands for the husband, the wife, the children, the servants, and the masters (Eph. 5:21-6:9; Col. 3:18-4:1; 1 Pt. 2:17-3:8).

It is a truly wonderful thing when a man voluntarily surrenders his will to the will of God. I find the more I simply obey the easier life gets. God is admonished us not to “harden our hearts” (Deut. l5:7; 1 Sam. 6:6; Ps. 95:8; Heb. 3:8, 15; 4:7). He warned us in Proverbs 29:1, “He that being often reproved hardeneth his neck, shall suddenly be destroyed, and that without remedy.

It is a sad thing when a child hardens his heart against the will of the parents who love him (Eph. 6:2). The first commandment with a promise was to honor the father and mother (Ex. 20:12). That promise was a long life. It is just as sad when a wife does not understand her commands and a husband does not understand his commands. Disobedience always brings problems in the family, in the church, and in society. God told us what He wants and blesses us when we do it but He does not force His will on us. Even after being a Christian for nearly 43 years, I still go through cycles of serving willingly and cheerfully and then serving begrudgingly or even not serving or obeying at all. You would think I would learn. Some of us are hard-headed!

Anyway, DON’T wait till you have a good attitude about sharing the Gospel. Just go.

5. Don’t get caught in the trap of thinking there is only one way to fulfill the great commission to go and spread the Gospel. It does not have to be door to door. Jesus “went about doing good” (Acts 10:38). You could develop an entire ministry around something you love to do. For example, suppose you like to bake cakes. Bake ten cakes and go find some person or family to give one to. As you give them the cake say, “God laid it on my heart to give you this. He wants you to know that He loves you and wants you in His family. Can I leave this tract with you or can I share with you how to join God’s family?

I don’t know if Dr. Carl Hatch is still alive or if his material on soul- winning is still available but he was one of the most innovative and effective soul-winners I ever met! If you find his teaching tapes you will get hundreds of new ideas on how to win souls. The same is true of Ray Comfort’s materials available on www.livingwaters.com.

If you don’t like going door to door, then don’t do it that way. I like using creation science information to start conversations and lead people to Christ. I spent MANY years going door to door and had some great success. I drove a church bus for 17 years and brought thousands to church and to the Lord. I’m for that method but fear that some get stuck thinking that is the only way. Not true. In the parable of the sower in Matthew 4 and Luke 8, some of the seed was accidently sown by the way side “as he went out to sow.” Before the sower even got where he was going, he planted some seeds unknowingly.

Let God guide you into how He wants you to do tell others about Him. You could be a video missionary. Just give out DVDs to people you meet. Creation Today offers a “tract pack” where you can order 100 DVD’s for $99. These make great “tracts” that bring people to Christ. You could be a full-time tire changer. Look for people along the highway with a flat tire and say, “Excuse me ma’am. I’ll change your tire for you if you will read this booklet while I do it.”

Just remember the scene from the movie The Matrix”—there is no spoon. There is more than one way to share God’s Word. Just do it!

6. Give something away. “A man’s gift maketh room for him.” (Proverbs 18:16). When you give someone a gift, they will often have “room” to give you some of their time to hear the Gospel. As I mentioned above, giving a free DVD is a great way. Here are a few more:
A. Go visit hospitals or nursing homes and give booklets like “Big Daddy” or “In the Beginning” or “It’s Coming” all available at www.chick.com and available from www.creationtoday.org. Give them your time by reading to them and listening to their stories. You can give the gift of laughter. Just read them the blog I wrote called “The Dog Died.” That ought to open a door to minister to someone!
B. Give out book markers. I make book markers here for the men and their families. If you have never seen one of these I make, please send me your address and the names of your family members and I’ll be glad to make them each one. They are way cool! I am currently rather limited in my opportunities for evangelism, which I am sure the Devil intended, but I can still witness by making these little gifts.
D. Give an hour of free yard work or house cleaning in exchange for them reading a tract or watching a DVD. The list of ideas along this line would be endless! Just find some way to get someone to listen to the Gospel.

7. Don’t get discouraged! The results are up to God. Noah preached for many years and nobody listened (2 Pt. 2:5). Paul preached and some believed, some mocked and some said, “Hmmmm…let me think about that.” (Acts 17:4-5; 28:24). Be not weary in well doing (2 Thes. 3:13). God is keeping score and He will try every man’s work to see of what SORT it is, NOT what SIZE it is (1 Cor. 3:13). Think on THAT verse for five minutes!

Elizabeth, thanks again for your kind words. It is such a blessing to get words of encouragement in prison (Pro. 25:25; Mt. 25:34-46). Many serve God faithfully for years and never see the fruit of their labor (Heb. 11:39). If you have never heard the story of “The George Street Preacher,” be sure to listen to that one! It is only about ten minutes long and it will bless your gizzard!

Keep running the race! I’ll see you here, there, or in the air!

Happy 5th of July!

Happy5th of July! We don’t celebrate this day much, but we should. This is the day many of the founding fathers began the l-o-o-o-o-o-n-g struggle to win the freedoms we take for granted. It’s easy to declare your independence and quite another to actually gain it. Moses and his crowd found that out as did Joshua and Caleb, the D-day invasion force, the guys who stormed Iwo Jima’s beaches and millions of others over earth’s long bloody history. Freedom ISN’T free!

I found it quite ironic yesterday to be celebrating freedom for the 6th time in part of the largest prison system in the world run by the same government that has established FEMA camps all over the land (currently empty but guarded) capable of holding millions! Hmmm? ya think they are nervous about their “Pinky and the Brain” plans to rule the world? Maybe they think there are still some Patrick Henry’s, Sam Adams’ and Paul Revere’s out there. I sure HOPE so!

Anyway, all is well here. Lots of heat and wind and a little rain once in while. Great Bible studies with the guys who still need encouraging mail as young converts! Call 877-479-3466 to get a list. Our lunch was hamburgers on the grill and watermelon! Really good! We had a bag supper so the staff could be with their family, like 95% of these guys should be. S-o-o-o-o-o, for supper, I had one of my famous sandwiches (well, around my house they’re famous) with peanut butter, jelly, cheese, banana, turkey, and honey! Wow! You will remember eating THAT for hours! Love em!! Ask my wife or kids if you don’t believe me. :) )

Good news! I got promoted! I was rolling silverware for $.12/hr, but I am now the Halite Crystal Installation Engineer! (I put the salt in the bag lunches.) Twenty men work 1/2 hr each day to pack condiment bags for the prisons next door. I was putting the tea in the bags. THAT is QUITE ironic! It made me remember a tea party in Boston one time. :) ) Is it time for another one of those? Lots of folks sure think so. We’ll see if it plays out this November! BTW – Stalin said, “He who votes is not important. He who COUNTS the votes is important!” Hmmm? Who counts your votes? Who checks up on the ones who count?

It is just a rough estimate but I think I have gotten over 10,000 letters since I was sent to prison. I answer nearly all of them and often send one of my world famous (well…not yet :) ) book markers in my reply. It a simple but great way to minister! It is s-o-o-o-o-o encouraging to get mail and especially testimony letters in which people tell how the videos have changed their lives! All glory to God, alone! Even Elijah got discouraged ya know (I Kn 18; James 5:17). Well, the one I got at mail call an hour ago from someone in Canada gets the prize! I wish I could share all 5 pages but…here is just a summary:

Dear Dr. Dino,

Just after New Years Eve 2007 was the first time I heard your voice. I stopped to visit a friend and was drunk at the time. I was in party mode and arrived bearing gifts—more beer. Two of my friends were there watching these stupid DVD’s of some guy that I figured was a con artist that was out to grab money. Both of the men were bikers and it was strange how they were glued to the screen. I began to mock and criticize and try to get their attention and pretend I was not interested.

But something happened while I slept that night. I awoke with a strange desire to hear and watch more. I put the video back in and watched more. I found myself consumed by the message. We were all pretty hardened in our lives and needed strong proof that what we were hearing about creation verses evolution was true. We searched for mistakes, lies, and slip-ups but couldn’t find any. Fact checking became part of our daily lives. It wasn’t enough that we were convinced that our new Lord and Savior was real-we had to convince everyone else! Soon we were spending days and nights making copies of your DVDs to pass out to friends. J*** would go days and nights without bathing or leaving the house, just fixated on copying and spreading your Gospel message.

I was baptized June 17, 2007. My journey was carefully calculated by God. Kent, God had been trying to reach me for so long and like some wild horse running through fields terrified to become captive and taken care of by the Master, all the while running through barbed wire fences, inflicting unnecessary wounds to itself, with blinders on, running full force, smashing into things. That was me until I heard your DVDs. God Bless you Kent! Love, L***

Letters like this make me s-o-o-o-o-o glad I devoted myself to winning souls 43 years ago. Are you investing your life in things that last forever? You should!

Please pray Acts 12:5 style for my soon release!

Kent Hovind
