The Biblical Flood and the Grand Canyon

Limitations of Science

Limitations of Science

Scientific research has a tremendous influence on society today, not only in terms of advances in technology, but also in our world view. The conclusions of science are often highly regarded by the public and by scientists themselves, but the limitations of science are not always appreciated. Therefore, it is important to consider these limitations in order to evaluate the impact of science on human health and well-being and its effect on our world view, especially when the conclusions of science may contradict religious beliefs.   Read More

12 Arguments Evolutionists Should Avoid

12 Arguments Evolutionists Should Avoid

For years, we’ve maintained a list of arguments creationists should avoid. There are enough good arguments for biblical accuracy and a young earth that dubious claims can safely be discarded. Now we want to address a similar topic: arguments evolutionists should avoid. These worn-out tropes have not only passed their expiration date, but they never should have been made to begin with. Argument 1: Evolution is a fact When our core beliefs are attacked, it’s often easy for humans to retreat to statements such as this: “My belief is a fact, and yours is wrong.” Read More

Promoting Creationism as Revealed in the Book of Genesis, in Six 24-Hour Days

Promoting Creationism as Revealed in the Book of Genesis, in Six 24-Hour Days

Introduction: Creationism and evolution have been in opposition ever since the latter’s introduction by Charles Darwin in 1858.  Their conflicting views come as no surprise since creationism is derived from Christianity, while evolution is claimed to be derived from science. Christianity revolves around the concept of faith in Jesus Christ, and science revolves around the pursuit of evidence in nature. In light of today’s growing focus on science, it is essential to address the issue. Through this treatise, we hope to show that God is the true creator of all life on earth and that evolution is a biased and illogical explanation for the creation and sustaining of life. Read More

Creation – how did God do it?

Creation – how did God do it?

That is to say, the means that God used to create the universe and all things in it was His Word. (<--click to enlarge) The occasions of his speaking, from Genesis chapter 1, verses 3–26 (NIV), are as follows: Read More

Atheists to Co-Opt Theistic Evolutionist Leadership

Atheists to Co-Opt Theistic Evolutionist Leadership

Not Ashamed, "Here I Stand" by  Ken Ham The words attributed to Martin Luther almost 500 years ago--when he boldly stood on the authority of God's Word against the compromisers of the day--often echo in my mind: "Here I stand. I can do no other. God help me."  How we need God's people today to be like Luther.  We need boldness to show that we are not ashamed of the gospel (Romans 1:16) and will handle the Word of God unashamedly. (II Timothy 2:15)  Sadly, as we have illustrated as many times in this newsletter over the years, the majority of theologians and church leaders (and most of the people of their congregations) will not stand on God's Word in Genesis.
