This is Ken Ham, editor of the new book against evolution entitled Glass House.
Some people claim that talking about the age of the earth, as we do at Answers in Genesis, is just a waste of time. They’ll say oh, it’s just a “side issue.” But it’s actually vital. Why? Because what you believe about the age of the earth impacts your view of Scripture. In other words, is God’s Word or man’s word your authority?
You see, being a young earth creationist is simply a consequence of accepting biblical authority. Now, a young earth has never been our main issue. We’re all about encouraging the church to start with God’s Word in all areas.
We talk a lot about earth’s age because that’s the focus of today’s attack on the Bible.
Ken Ham is the CEO and founder of Answers in Genesis-US, the highly acclaimed Creation Museum, and the world-renowned Ark Encounter. Ken Ham is one of the most in-demand Christian speakers in North America.
