Description:

Introduction:

The study of life is so large, that it is impossible for one person to be well educated in all areas of specialty.

Faith and Theory:

The faith in creation does not rest on a scientific theory.  It rests on the faith in the word of a risen savior.  Theories come and go with regularity.

It has been said, “The Bible is not a book of science, therefore we don’t expect to find scientific truth within the Bible”  However, the God who created our world is the author of the Bible.  The Bible is not a book of science, but there are no scientific errors in the Bible.

Views of Earth Science

Uniformity is a belief that “all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.”  According to 2 Peter 3, these people assume that nothing cataclysmic has happened in the past and will not happen in the future.  Uniformity teaches that the rate of change for erosion, transportation, sedimentation and other geologic processes have always run at the rate we now see.

Unbelief

God will hold men responsible for their unbelief.  The Bible is not rejected because of evidence against it.   Instead it is rejected because men love their pride and sin.  “…scoffers walking after their own lusts.”  Judgment that will fall upon the world will be because of unbelief.  If God is going to punish the world for unbelief, then there must be no excuse for unbelief.  Romans 1 says that unbelief is “without excuse.”  God has given powerful evidence that his word is true and will hold us responsible for how we respond to him.

Apologetics

Apologetics is the defense of the Bible.  Some people wonder if it is necessary to defend the Bible?  A good defense for the Bible will strengthen faith of believers.  However, a good defense for the Bible may not change the minds of intelligent people even if presented with the facts.  This is because “the natural man receiveth not the things of God, neither can he know them.” (1 Corinthians 1).   


Uniformity and Evolution

These “Siamese twins” of belief are linked so closely that logically they cannot be separated.  A believer in one must necessarily believe in the other.  


The meaning of “science”

Science is facts that can be observed, examined, demonstrated, described and repeated.  While the theory of evolution cannot be proved, the only alternative is Special Creation which is unthinkable for a person who assumes there is no God.

Education and Evolution

The United States court systems have deemed that Creation cannot be taught in school.  It would violate the “establishment clause” of the U.S. Constitution.  The god of this world has a plan to remove God from the world, and rob him of glory.
