Climate Change: Physical and Spiritual

to Apr 12

Williamstown, KY

Answers Center - Ark Encounter

Has there been catastrophic climate change in the past? Are we experiencing climate change now? Well, yes—but that depends on how you define climate change! We’re seeing catastrophic spiritual climate change throughout the West, and the only way to fight it is with the truth of God’s Word and the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Environmental climates change, but there’s no reason for the climate despair paralyzing the younger generations or the alarmism of the media and many scientists.

Get answers to the radical climate change happening in our culture, and the not-so-radical climate change happening in the environment, at our one-of-a-kind Easter conference, taking place at the Ark Encounter.
