We are already seeing tremendous responses from the Answers for Darwin conference this past weekend in Costa Mesa, California. It was thrilling to receive this one:
Just got home from today's conference, and like last night, it was phenomenal! Everything was so well done and polished. The slides and videos looked great, and each speaker spoke loud, authoritatively, and confidently standing on God's Word.
Oftentimes scholars speak on their subjects accurately, but there's a certain holy spark in AiG's speakers in person that doesn't even come across in other media (web pages and videos).
It was especially an honor for me to shake Dr. Snelling's hand, and thank him for the ARJ [Answers Research Journal, our online journal] and all of his material from the past I've read; and also to shake Dr. Menton's hand, and thank him briefly ... his Scales/Feathers/Skin presentation drew such a great mixture of wows & laughter from the crowd (even as people were meandering afterwards, recounting with joy what they had heard). And I'm so grateful that instead of relaxing after retiring from university, he gives of his time to share his knowledge with others!
And of course it was a great pleasure again to shake Mr. Ham's hand and thank him for bringing the conference to Calif. (he actually remembered having breakfast with me and the Eggerts last year in LA). This is a new memory I'll treasure forever! ... The big take-home point for me was not just evidence for the reliability of Genesis from various science disciplines, or that Genesis provides a solid foundation for the Gospel, but that Darwin chose one starting point for which he is greatly lauded by people 150 years later, even though our starting point far surpasses his logically (not to mention our eternal rewards for glorifying God instead of God's creation).
Here are some photographs:
“Listen to pull them out of the fire”Thanks for stopping by and thanks for praying,
(Judges 1:22–23) And of some have compassion, making a difference: And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh.
The best preparation for us to bring the gospel to the lost is to listen to them so that our hearts may fill with compassion & hatred of the sin that destroys them.
