Genesis 1 and Evolution

G

29 And God said, “See, I have given you every herb that yields seed which is on the face of all the earth, and every tree whose fruit yields seed; to you it shall be for food. 30 Also, to every beast of the earth, to every bird of the air, and to everything that creeps on the earth, in which there is life, I have given every green herb for food”; and it was so. 31 Then God saw everything that He...

The Flood, fossils and faith

T

Philip Bell – Creation Ministries International I’m going to particularly Focus this morning on the flood of Noah, on how that relates to fossils that we find in the rocks and to our faith. If it didn’t relate to faith, there wouldn’t be much point bringing this on a Sunday morning, would there? Does it matter? Is this of relevance to Christians? Does it really matter...

Human race: Especially created?

Lucien Tuinstra – Creation Ministries International The scientists and the journalists all agree our genetics are getting worse. So, in comes an evolutionary expert, Richard Buggs, who asks a question. Well, actually, he’s got two: Is an Adam and Eve bottleneck inconsistent with human genetic diversity data? In what time scale could Adam and Eve’s bottleneck be consistent with...

Sunday Services – November 13, 2022

“When it comes to claims of great antiquity for the earth and humanity that far exceed that of the biblical timeline, we must treat them with extreme scepticism. The dates provided by the archaeological reports, and often trumpeted in the media, are based upon seriously flawed methodologies.

Evolution – how it works

E

Jay Seegert The truth is that not only is believing in evolution not required to do science, believing in evolution gets in the way of doing good science. Here’s an example, something called ‘vestigial organs’. These things are supposedly ‘leftover pieces in our body that aren’t doing anything’. Well, they used to have a use in earlier stages of evolution but now they’re useless...

The Bible and Science

As an example, the Bible gives us a framework to understand astronomy. Psalm 33.6 By the word of the Lord the heavens were made, And all the host of them by the breath of His mouth.Psalm 33.6 God is the one who created this universe, and His fingerprints are all over it. But the secular astronomers will say, ‘Well, no, wait a minute! See these swirling gases over here, that’s the birth of a...
