  1. I read your article on Kent Hovind, was very good. I noticed something similar when I called the number trying to get hold of Kent Hovind, I got someone else instead, and from the way that they spoke to me, was an indication that they were getting a heavy dose of Kent Hovind, and Ravi Zacharias, rather than a personal knowledge of God's Word. His imprisonment is very moving, enough to drive people to support the ministry, but leaves me thinking... Am I really supporting God's Ministry, or someone's version of it.

    It's not a negative review that I have, I'm sort of on the fence, not quite sure, there are things I agree with, but also things I do not. When I finally did get the chance to speak to him, was not quite what I was expecting. I didn't really feel that warm sense of welcoming in his voice, but more of an urgency for me to see his particular side, than looking at it from someone else's point of view, and that's why it's so important for Christians to build their faith only on God's Word alone. Some of these ministries have a way of making other Christians feel worthless, as though they can never do enough. But what is enough... I was under the influence that we are saved by Grace, and not by works... still, at times they make me feel as though my entire faith is without value if I am not supporting them in their's.
