Critical Theory Attacks Genesis 1 and 2

It is common for liberal critics of the Bible to assert that the book of Genesis contains two accounts of the creation. Allegedly, these two records reflect different authors, different time periods, etc. It is further charged that the narratives contradict each other in several particulars. The two accounts are supposed to involve Genesis 1:1-2:3 and Genesis 2:4-25. One author ... read more »

The Belly Button Argument

Occasionally one encounters an article that is so bereft of common sense that he wonders how it ever saw the light of day. Such was an essay recently authored by a deluded soul who occupies a small niche in the extremely liberal faction of the Christian brotherhood. The blighted composition subsequently was selected for publication in a magazine which all ... read more »

Psalm 8:3-4 – What Is Man?

In the 8th Psalm, Israel's shepherd king exclaimed: "When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have established [I am constrained to ask]; What is man, that you are mindful of him, and the son of man that you visit [care for] him?" (3-4). This is a magnificent declaration of Holy ... read more »

Why Were Humans Created?

A student at a major university is troubled by questions his professors are asking. For example: Why did God create man? If one replies that God "needed someone to love," why couldn't he just have loved the angels? Whatever may be said about man could apply to them as well. If God already had angels, then why did he create ... read more »

The Extended-Sabbath Argument and Darwinism

People who are intimidated by the claims of modern "scientism" are ever looking for biblical loopholes by which they may force the Genesis record of the creation events into the mold of evolutionary chronology. Evolutionists begrudgingly concede that without a sufficient span of time, there is no chance that macro-evolution (the development of all living organisms from a single, original ... read more »

National Center for Science Education & Evolution

Recently I received a form letter (dated November, 1998) from Eugenie C. Scott, executive director for the National Center For Science Education, Inc. This militant, anti-religion organization is underwritten by some of the most rabid skeptics in America. Prominent names, such as F.J. Ayala, Niles Eldredge, Stephen J. Gould, and Donald Johanson, are connected with the movement. The letter was ... read more »

Will Heaven Be on Earth?

The "Jehovah's Witnesses" along with many denominational writers contend that with the Second Coming of Christ the earth will be purified by fire, and this material planet will be the residence of the faithful throughout eternity. In other words, a "new earth" will be what we commonly think of as "heaven." As Charles Hodge of Princeton stated it: "earth shall ... read more »

Tutoring in the Shadow of Darwin

John N. Clayton is the editor of a bi-monthly magazine titled Does God Exist? Last year, Mr. Clayton, a retired high school teacher in South Bend, Indiana, awarded two scholarships as a result of an essay contest he sponsored via his journal. Applicants were required to compose an essay on "how science supports belief in God and how they plan ... read more »

Is a Literal Interpretation of Genesis 1 Important?

"Many have advanced theories to stretch out the creation account from six, literal days (Gap Theory, Day-Age Theory), to millions or billions of years. As far as I have been able to ascertain, this is done to attempt a harmony between the Bible and evolutionary theory. When shown passages such as Exodus 20:11, many often retort that it doesn't matter ... read more »

Was Jesus Created First?

"A friend, who is a Jehovah's Witness, says that Jesus Christ was the first creature made by God the Father. He cites Colossians 1:15, where Jesus is said to be the 'firstborn of all creation' as proof. Can you comment on this?" The Watchtower dogma, that Jesus was the first being created by the Father and, therefore, he is not ... read more »
