New Evolution vs God video: Ray Comfort dialogues with Scientists

Christians do have a variety of opinions about Evolution. But there is no doubt that for many younger non-believers faith in Evolution without any trace of a creator is a primary objection to the gospel. In this video, Ray Comfort dialogues with Science majors and their professors. Their reaction to the preaching of the gospel towards the end of this video is priceless. The whole video is very impacting, no matter what you believe about God, the gospel or evolution. I encourage you to watch it … [Read more...]

10 Ways a Christian should respond to the earthquake in Japan

As Japan braces itself for a possible further serious earthquake, and deals with the consequences of such massive devastation caused by the last one, not to mention the risk of a major nuclear incident, how should Christians respond? Please understand that none of this is intended to claim that we have all the answers to such a disaster. In fact, like Job's friends' initial response, often the best thing we can do is say absolutely nothing, and share people's pain.I write this article with … [Read more...]

Hear Behe, an advocate of Intelligent Design in the UK

This month you can attend a number of meetings that Behe will be speaking at.  I may well be at next Monday Evenings one in Westminster chapel. There are a number of other events you can read about on their site: Darwin or design? Michael Behe, a biochemistry professor, is a key figure in the emergence of the modern Intelligent Design (ID) movement.

BOOK EXTRACT – Straight to the heart of Genesis

Yesterday I shared an extract from Phil Moore's introduction to Genesis. Today we continue to hear from him on this vital book of the Bible:CREATOR GOD (1:1-31)“Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters. And God said, ‘Let there be light,’ and there was light.” (Genesis 1:2-3)Every culture has its own creation story. The Hebrews had heard a lot of them. The Mesopotamians told them that their god Mardu … [Read more...]

When it is Great to be Wrong!

I received another email (see the first), which I have permission to share anonymously. It shows that I was not entirely right. I still believe, however, that for most people leading our evangelism with creationism is not the best way. I think that stories like this tell us that we must treat every inquirer as an individual, and what might be helpful for one person might not be for another: My email may be one of so few that your point (I am convinced that very few unsaved people will be … [Read more...]

Is it Really Possible to Believe in a Form of Evolution and Still be a Christian?

I received the following email, and with the writer's consent, thought it would be good to publish it here. Remember that the discussion I intended is not about what I personally believe on this issue, nor about what it is best for a Bible-loving believer to believe. Rather, it's about whether arguing about evolution is a good thing to do when evangelizing, or even teaching new Christians: Regarding your most recent blog post . . . I am afraid I have to disagree with you over a few points … [Read more...]

Darwin and the Christian – A Tour by Christian Evolutionists

UPDATE - To avoid confusion, please note that this post should not be interpreted as as reflecting my personal views on the subject of creation and evolution. I was simply noting that people who believe in God have different opinions on this matter, and that in a number of cases, to focus on this issue in our initial evangelism is not wise.Many Christians will not agree with the perspective on evolution expressed by the scientists featured in the Test of FAITH project. But if the DVD I … [Read more...]

Evolutionary Spectrum

I am going to address a theme today that I haven't spoken about very much in the entire history of my blog. It is not an easy subject to write about as I am aware that there are very strong emotions on display on both sides. The debate between atheistic evolution and any kind of belief in a creator God seems to have long since become almost too emotive to discuss. Among Christians, there is much argument about what our position should be.  I have decided for now that I will not pin down for you … [Read more...]

Creation in 6 days?

Nick Queen asks Did God Create Everything in Six Literal Days? Of course he asks the wrong question for today's audience. The question for many is did God create the world at all or even is there a God?I think that the first place to start is whether the world and all in it happened purely by chance. That I simply cannot believe. The intricicies of design in even the simplest molecular building block of life are such that I cannot see them arrising purely by chance. What is more each of the … [Read more...]
