I had the wonderful opportunity to visit my home country of Australia and speak to overflow crowds in two different churches in the state of Queensland on the “Relevance of Genesis.” Believers in these churches were presented with the importance of thinking foundationally to give answers to a culture that is increasingly rejecting the word of God and the gospel of Jesus Christ.
As with the rest of the West, Australia is headed for moral and spiritual chaos as secular, humanistic religion takes hold of that nation. It’s a very small percentage of the population that is controlling the entire culture and forcibly trying to impose their anti-God worldview on people.
I want Christians to recognize the importance of allowing Scripture to be the authority in all areas—including history and science. The moral and societal decline we’re seeing across the West is a direct result of man making himself the authority, instead of seeing God’s Word as the authority in all areas. If man makes the rules, then why not redefine marriage, family, and gender? Why not allow anyone to live any way they please? But we are not the ultimate authority—God and his Word are, and we need to allow his Word to shape our thinking and boldly share its truth with our dying culture.
But there is some encouraging news from "down under" as well. It's exciting to see how God is growing the Answers in Genesis ministry in Australia and New Zealand!
Thanks for stopping by and thanks for praying,
