"Making Science Splat~tacular!"
Adam Thornton's
Elephant's Toothpaste

Supplies: Safety Goggles, Active Dry Yeast, Food Coloring, Warm Water, Dish Soap,
Hydrogen Peroxide, 2 Liter Soda Bottle, Aluminum Pan, and a Funnel.

What happens: Put on your safety glasses and head outside.  Place your empty soda botle
in the pan and pour 1/2 cup of hydrogen peroxide in it.  Squirt some dish soap in and add a
few drops of food coloring.  Now mix 2 tablespoons of warm water and 1 teaspoon of yeast
in a glass.  Dump into the bottle using the funnel and stand back.

Explanation: Yeast is a catalyst causing the hydrogen peroxide to quickly release the
oxygen atom...the air causes the soap to form suds and turns into an awesome fountain!

Object lesson: Living Water
Wow, this foam fountain reminds me of John chapter 4 when a woman came to drink to
some water from a well and Jesus asked her for a drink. (Jews and Samaritans didn't
normally interact together so she was shocked when Jesus asked her.)  

Then Jesus said, “If you knew the gift of God, and who it is who says to you, ‘Give
Me a drink,’ you would have asked Him, and He would have given you living
water.” John 4:10

Whoa...Living Water?  That kinda sounds like a fountain of youth...but she wondered where
Jesus would get this miracle water.

Jesus answered and said to her, “Whoever drinks of this water will thirst again,
but whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him will never thirst. But the
water that I shall give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up into
everlasting life.”


Our lives are like an old yucky cup that soon will be removed from the kitchen...we're like a
cup that's disgustingly dirty from breaking God's Law.  Let's take a closer look at God's
Law: The 10 commandments.  How many lies have you told?  (That's the 9th
commandment)  Have you always honored your mom and dad? (That's the 5th
commandment.)  Have you ever stolen something...like candy or cheated on a test?  
(That's the 8th commandment.)

Someday we will have to stand before God because we've broken His Law...and all liars will
not be allowed to enter heaven.  God however is rich in mercy and provided a way to clean
your yucky cup!  God sent His only Son Jesus to come to earth and die for our sins...and
because He died on the cross He took our punishment and sins!

That means we can either choose to let Jesus take the punishment for our sins or
you can try to pay your debt for your sins on your own...

But you can't ...why? Read Isaiah 64:6 below:

Isaiah 64:6 says "And all our righteousnesses are like filthy rags"

That's means we can never do enough good to make up for the bad things we've
done...James 2:10 says, "For whoever shall keep the whole law, and yet stumble
in one point, he is guilty of all."

That's right even one sin can send you to hell...

Why am I telling you this? I certainly don't enjoy telling you about hell...but no one
knows when he will stand before his Maker...and after death you face Judgement
(Heb 9:27)...don't delay...get right with God today.

Jesus can forgive your sins and give you everlasting life...let Him know now that you want
this "
Living Water" and thank Him for taking your punishment.
