Tuesday was a historic day for the ministry of Answers in Genesis and our high-tech Creation Museum. Famed engineer, scientist, comedian, author, and inventor Bill Nye and I debated the question: “Is creation a viable model for explaining the origins of the universe?” Even before the debate started, the event garnered much international attention among believers and skeptics alike.
From the opening remarks of the debate, it was apparent which worldview each man was presenting. Of course, I started with the point that every Christian must start with the Word of God. If the Bible is truly the infallible, inerrant revelation from God to man, then we must trust the history that is foundational to the interpretation of the world around us. As Christians we are able to present our beliefs regarding origins and science with absolute confidence and clarity because it is completely consistent with the character of God. I made a distinction between the ideas of historical science and observational science and showed how a person’s beliefs about the past influence the interpretation of things in the present.
Sadly, many Christians are not equipped to handle the secular attacks against the Bible, especially issues dealing with origins and the book of Genesis. That’s where we as a ministry come alongside the local church in equipping believers to answer the skeptical questions of the age and present the gospel with power and authority.
You should consider holding one of our Bible-affirming conferences in your church. These apologetics meetings—for ages 12 and up (some meetings even have a children’s program)—are geared towards equipping the church to defend the Christian faith, establish the authority of God’s Word in this increasingly secularized culture, and present the gospel message more effectively. AiG’s speakers are highly qualified to speak on a range of biblical and scientific topics, all associated with relating Genesis to biblical authority, the gospel, and the Christian worldview, such as the following topics:
