Dying in the Middle
Friday, June 25, 2010
Looks like it’s the beginning of the end of The BioLogos Foundation, at least as the distinctively Christian organization it claims to be. As BioLogos President Darrel Falk demonstrates in his latest blog post, the distinctively Christian tenets of his faith have eroded on middle ground, the place he’s chosen to make his final stand.
The Facts About Fossils
Thursday, June 24, 2010
What are fossils? How were they formed? What clues, if any, do they provide for determining the age of the earth? Today, John MacArthur answers those questions as he explains what the fossil record proves, and maybe more important, what it doesn’t prove.
Creation Series - A La Carte
Tuesday, June 22, 2010
We'll start with a few comments about BioLogos, the Pyromaniac, and Al Mohler. Then a look at Uniformitarianism and a universe with the appearance of age. Finally, we'll pull out the roadmap to find out where we're going next.
Why Six Days?
Sunday, June 20, 2010
According to Scripture, God created the universe over six days’ time and rested on the seventh day. But why six days? Not because he needed that much time to create, and certainly not because He needed to rest on the seventh. Rather, He was establishing a pattern for the cycle of work and rest—a permanent pattern for the good of humanity.
Creation: A Second-Class Doctrine?
Thursday, June 17, 2010
Consult the doctrinal statement of 100 churches in America. You’ll probably find this phrase, “In essentials, unity; in non-essentials, liberty; in all things, charity.” What about the doctrine of creation? Is it essential or non-essential? According to John MacArthur, divine creation is one of the primary doctrines of the Bible.
Theistic Evolution, Flying Frogs—
What Do They Have in Common?
Tuesday, June 15, 2010
What if someone asks you, “Could God have used evolution as an agent of creation?” How would you respond? The question deserves an answer, and the text of Genesis 1 and 2 provide it. Maybe you’ve never thought about that kind of question. John MacArthur has, and he gives his compelling answer in the following short video excerpt. Don’t miss it!
Enquiring Minds Want to Know
Sunday, June 13, 2010
Have you ever wondered: How did the world come to exist as we know it today? Why are there so many different cultures and ethnicities? Where did languages come from? How can we explain the presence of evil?
The Fallacy of the
Wednesday, June 09, 2010
It’s no surprise that the creation account has always been in the crosshairs of the enemy. Since the Garden of Eden, God’s Word has suffered and withstood many aggressive attacks, all driven by one scandalous purpose—to cast doubt upon God and the integrity of His Word.
Genesis in particular, has been a favorite target. Many are saying . . . Adam was not a real person, Eden was not a real place, and the talking serpent was not a real tempter. In fact, they start with the word, “day” in Genesis 1. According to the “framework hypothesis,” day doesn’t mean a real 24-hour period of time. John MacArthur goes on to explain . . .
Changing the Rules
Sunday, June 06, 2010
The straightforward, literal reading of Genesis 1-3 has proven to be a stubborn obstacle for those who embrace the "millions and billions of years ago" myth. To get around it, some evangelicals try to change the rules of interpretation in the first chapters of Genesis. After all, if the biblical creation account wasn't meant to be taken literally, then those who insist upon a literal, six-day creation aren't just wrong, they are doing violence to authorial intent.
Genesis and Naturalism: Cognitive Dissonance
Wednesday, June 02, 2010
You’ve probably heard of dissonance. It’s a term normally employed by musicians to describe disharmony and disagreement between sounds. There is another term called cognitive dissonance used to describe similar discord in the world of ideas and beliefs. Maybe that’s a good way to view the debate about origins in Genesis—cognitive dissonance.
