Creation/evolution topic once again in presidential debates

by on

From CNN

During the first GOP presidential debate last month in California, three Republican candidates raised eyebrows by indicating they did not subscribe to Charles Darwin's theory of evolution. When the topic came up again Tuesday night in a CNN-sponsored debate in New Hampshire, one of those evolution skeptics, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, offered a spirited defense of the biblical creation narrative. "In the beginning, God created the heavens and the Earth," said Huckabee, an ordained Baptist minister. "A person either believes that God created the process or believes that it was an accident and that it just happened all on its own."
You can see the actual video clip.

Although it is good to see a presidential debate participant declare Genesis 1:1, the problem is that he then in essence undermined the authority of God’s Word by not standing on what it clearly states concerning creation in six days. What has been lost from America is the foundation of biblical authority. It’s interesting to see someone take Genesis 1:1 literally, then imply that other parts of Genesis 1 are not to be taken as literal history (even though Genesis is written as historical narrative).

The Creation Museum and AiG ministry has been raised up in this era of history to challenge church AND culture to return to the authority of God’s Word beginning in Genesis.

Today I did a radio interview with SRN news about the comments made at the presidential debates.
