The morning sessions on the third day of the Answers Mega Conference continued our week of solid, biblical teaching. The speakers presented practical applications of building our thinking around the truth of God’s Word rather than man’s fallible ideas. If you have not had a chance to watch any of the sessions, you can still purchase access to watch all of the talks (available until September 1).
In the second part of the presentation, Dr. Mortenson then talked about the strengths and weaknesses of the ID movement. He identified a key flaw in the ID movement: “The Intelligent Design movement does not point to the God of the Bible.” On the contrary, Dr. Mortenson stated that, “Nature reveals God Himself,” as the Scripture stated in Romans 1:20. For more information on this topic, see the article “The Intelligent Design Movement.”

There are people, however, who compromise on God’s Word and claim that Adam was not real. In light of those claims, Dr. Purdom affirmed, “A real, historical Adam is necessary for the doctrine of salvation.” She went on to explain, “Jesus is the promised seed” that God would provide to Adam and Eve (Genesis 3:15), and “last time I checked, allegories and metaphors do not have children.” Of course, she also reminded attendees that “you do not have to believe in a real Adam and Eve to be a Christian.” This is not a salvation issue, but it does lie at the heart of the gospel.
Dr. Georgia Purdom gave us a quick summary of her presentation in the following video:
