Fossil Facts

The fossil record is often cited as evidence for evolution. But actually it provides support for a biblical creationist worldview.  As in all aspects of the Creation vs. Evolution debate, each side follows certain pre-suppositions.  The creationist presupposes an eternal supernatural Creator God, design, thousands of years, abrupt changes, and catastrophism.  While the evolutionist presupposes [...]

Man and his Environment

What is a biblical perspective of environmentalism?  God as the Creator and owner of the earth (Isaiah 45:12, Psalm 24:1) has mandated that mankind should take stewardship or dominion over the earth’s physical and biological realms.  A good term for this is conservation  - the act of preserving, protecting and properly managing the earth’s natural [...]

The Question of Evil

The question of evil is a classic issue that some people use as an excuse to reject the existence of a loving God.  We often cannot explain why things happen – especially if we try to know the mind of God, who said, my ways are not your ways, Isa 55:7-9.  But the Bible gives [...]

How do we know the Earth is about 6,000 years old?

In our world today, almost everyone is taught that the universe and the earth are billions of years old.  The Big Bang Theory puts the origin of the universe at 15 to 20 billion years.  Matter was originally compressed into a singularity – a small dot!  From this explosion (or rapid expansion), all the stars [...]

What about the Day-Age and other theories?

This is the third and last in a series concerning Theistic Evolution. The term Theistic Evolution is used here as an umbrella term for attempts, mostly by Christians, to combine evolution or millions and billions of years of earth history with the Bible. Although, some of the proponents claim to reject evolution, they open the [...]

What About the Gap Theory?

This is the second in a series about attempts to reconcile a supposed ancient earth (millions or billions of years old) with the Bible.  One of these attempts is the Gap Theory, which after two centuries is still popular today, even among conservative Christians. As mentioned in the first blog, by the end of the 18th [...]

Can Evolution and the Bible be Reconciled?

If we believe Jesus when He said Adam and Eve were created “at the beginning” (i.e., the sixth day of creation – Matthew 19:4), and we take the genealogies of chapters 5 and 11 of Genesis literally as historical narrative, we see that the earth is about 6,000 years old.  Yet today, most Christian theologians, [...]

The Justice of God

Some people argue that God must not be just because He allows so much evil in the world.  But then many of these same people cling to the philosophy of evolution, rejecting God as their judge. The fact is that God is our sovereign Creator exercising perfect justice over all the earth for all time.  [...]

Noah’s Flood is no Myth

Skeptics often ridicule the Creationist position that there was a global flood about 4400 years ago in Noah’s day.  They say it is a myth and there is no evidence.  Although Noah’s ark has not been definitively found, there have been a number of eye witnesses over the years who claim to have seen a [...]

Is Jesus Christ the Only Way to God? (part 2)

In a previous blog we asked the question whether Jesus Christ is the only way to God.  What about those who have never heard of Christ?  God answers this objection by showing that He reveals himself to all mankind through conscience and Creation.  Mankind has no excuse because everyone has a conscience and everyone can [...]
