Theistic Evolution Undermines Our Christian Faith

Theistic Evolution Undermines Our Christian Faith

Theistic evolution is a significant threat to the Christian church  It undermines the very foundation of the Christian faith and causes people to doubt the truth of Scripture I grew up as a theistic evolutionist  I was interested in science, and was an undergraduate biochemistry major  I believed in God and heard that he was the Creator on Sunday, but heard evolution all the other days of the week  I did what seemed the only logical thing that I think so many Christians also do, and that is to try to blend the two together  So I combined them, thinking that evolution was simply the process that God used to create, but that is so wrong  I think people make that compromise because they do not know all of the scientific evidence that calls the theory of evolution into question and they also have not been made aware of the major theological/biblical problems that it generates Read More

Biblical and Scientific Defense of Our Young Earth

Biblical and Scientific Defense of Our Young Earth

I would like to explain why I believe that the earth and the universe are about 6000 years old  My premise is that the Bible is the Word of God  As the Word of God, the Bible is completely trustworthy  Because it is completely trustworthy, I can accept the plain reading of it  The plain reading of the Bible leads me to accept the historical narrative found in the book of Genesis  I also believe that if the historical record in the Bible is not accurate, then I would have no reason to trust the theology or the morality of the Bible because it can no longer be considered the Word of God Read More

Letter: Creator is ‘missing link’ between apes and man

Letter to the Editor by Larry T Ingels, was published in the Free Lance Star Fredericksburg and the interesting comments following the letter Almost human Every few years there is an “amazing discovery” concerning a claimed ancient connection between apes and man Just recently [“Bones found in cave reveal new human relative,” Sept 11], there was a widely publicized announcement about the findings in a burial site inside a cave in South Africa Another “atheist” paleontologist proudly announced that he has found a “missing link” between apes and man, thousands and thousands of years old Read More

Christians that Question the Bible Concerning Creation

Christians that Question the Bible Concerning Creation

When God presented the account of how He created the world and universe in the Book of Genesis, He gave an explanation that was straight forward and easy to understand We, of course have no idea of what processes took place when He spoke or when He stretched His hands But He gave an account that indicated the work was accomplished in a period of what we know was 6 days Read More

The Origins of Humans

The Origins of Humans

Dr Dan Reynolds writes "On the Origin of Humans One of the key issues in the creation-evolution debate is the origin of humans, Homo sapiens What we think about the origin of our own species has a dramatic impact on our morality and worldview because it answers the questions of who and what we are and why we exist The secular and biblical views of our origins are diametrically opposed and must come to totally different conclusions about our place in the universe Secular scientists tell us that the evidence that we evolved from a common ancestor with primates is “overwhelming” But just how good is that evidence The Origins of Humans Dan Reynolds PhD | TASC - Triangle Association for the Science of Creation One of the key issues in the creation-evolution debate is the origin of humans, Homo sapiens What we think about the origin of our own species has a dramatic impact on our morality and wordlview because it answers the questions of who and what we are and why we exist The secular and biblical views of our origins are diametrically opposed and must come to totally different conclusions about our place in the universe Secular scientists tell us that the evidence that we evolved from a common ancestor with primates is “overwhelming” But just how good is that evidence The Bible teaches we were made in God’s image and designed to have fellowship with Him both now and forever Recent results in the field of genetics have been remarkably in accord with the biblical model for human origins and inimical to evolutionary scenarios Here we will compare the biblical and secular models for human origins and discuss recent science that supports the biblical view and/or discredits the evolutionary view Specifically, we will discuss “junk DNA” as “evidence” for common ancestry, the real percent similarity of the human and chimpanzee genomes, the alleged historical fusion of two primate chromosomes that “prove” humans share common ancestry with primates, genetic evidence that Homo sapiens and Neanderthals interbred and were hence the same species, and genetic evidence that is consistent with Adam and Eve as well as Noah and his family 1 Biblical history of human origins vs alleged evolutionary history Read More

Celebrate a Creation Sunday this February 15, 2015 – Not an Evolution Sunday!

Celebrate a Creation Sunday this February 15, 2015 – Not an Evolution Sunday!

Dear Pastor, For many Christians, holidays are a time to reflect upon faith – and stir it up by way of remembrance (2 Peter 1:13) At Christmas, we celebrate the incarnation of Jesus Christ On Good Friday, we reflect upon the awful price that paid for our sins On Resurrection Sunday (Easter), we praise God for the risen Savior and the promise of eternal life But in recent years pastors in Christian churches around the world have begun celebrating a different sort of holiday, Evolution Sunday, literally preaching Darwin from the pulpit Unlike truly Christian holidays, this one erodes faith and undermines the Bible, replacing the Genesis narrative with a “sacred story” of suffering, thorns, disease, and death – all in the world before sin – with a dash of Goddidit to disarm objectors Evolution Sunday began in 2006 to promote evolution among religious communities and convince them that belief in God is compatible with evolution Those who promote Evolution Sunday insist that the church must adapt biblical doctrine to millions of years of microbes-to-man evolution, or perish Read More

Evolution and Creation- Both Are Unbelievable!

Evolution and Creation- Both Are Unbelievable!

  The majority of scientist and biology teachers say the Universe came about from nothing, accidentally by random chance; that everything evolved from a Big Bang and God was not involved They insist that Evolution is more than a theory: it is a fact! Their authority comes from their having earned a PhD in some scientific field, which they feel gives them a superior ability to make determinations about the history of our Origins Read More

What Is the Gap Theory?

What Is the Gap Theory?

A summary taken from the book Creation Under Fire My purpose here is simply to educate; I am not defending any particular position or particular age of the earth, which I’m not really concerned about My concern is, however, to promote and defend the integrity of Scripture from obvious errors that have risen and been promoted In short, the gap theory teaches that a long undetermined amount of time transpired between verses one and two of Genesis chapter one It teaches that the cosmos and the earth had been created long before the creation week described in Genesis chapter one, with animals and dinosaurs; some versions have a race of humanoids as well It teaches that Satan fell during this time and ruled the earth and corrupted it so badly, that God had to destroy the earth by a global flood indicated by the waters in verse 2, before re-creating it starting in verse 3 It is also known as the “pre-Adamite theory,” or the “ruin-restoration theory” Read More

Evolution Versus Creation

Evolution Versus Creation

Discussion of how naturalistic evolution is not realistic God’s Creation - in one form or another - is realistic A    Naturalistic Evolution is what “unbelievers” believe The idea of our existence on earth as a natural formation started centuries early - perhaps as early as BC 300 The basic description of evolution then began with Charles Darwin in 1838 onward as he focused on “natural selection” His book On the Origin of Species was published in 1859 One of the things to see is that people who focus on evolution do not believe in God’s creation, and that is one of the reasons that they commit themselves to both naturalism and evolution Read More
