What About Creation?

What About Creation?

Did God Create Everything Out of Nothing? The notion that God created everything from nothing has fallen on hard times. A surprising number of philosophers and theologians dogmatically contend that the doctrine of creation out of nothing (ex nihilo) has little scriptural support. But the opening statement in Scripture — In the beginning God created

A Pagan Festival?

Shout and be glad. I am coming and I will live among you. — Zechariah 2:10 Therefore do not let anyone judge you by what you eat or drink, or with regard to a religious festival, a New Moon celebration or a Sabbath day. These are a shadow of the things that were to come;

The Spirit of Christmas

Now I commit you to God and to the word of His grace, which can build you up and give you an inheritance among all those who are sanctified. I have not coveted anyone’s silver or gold or clothing. You yourselves know that these hands of mine have supplied my own needs and the needs of my companions. In

How Do I Find a Good Church?

One of the questions I am most frequently asked is “How do I find a good church?” This question has taken on added significance in recent years because of the massive impact televangelism has had on our culture.

What Does the Bible Say about Dinosaurs?

Maybe you’ve seen it (stories about Dinosaurs) on the Internet, the popular claim that human footprints have been discovered alongside dinosaur tracks in the Paluxy Riverbed of Glen Rose, Texas. It is argued that these footprints in stone prove that the world is six thousand years old and therefore dinosaurs existed contemporaneously with human beings.

Acts 17:26

Did God Use Evolution As His Method For Creation?

Under the banner of “theistic evolution,” a growing number of Christians maintain that God used evolution as his method for creation. This, in my estimation, is the worst of all possibilities. It is one thing to believe in evolution; it is quite another to blame God for it. First, the biblical account of creation specifically

If We Can’t See God, Can We Know He Exists?

It is not uncommon for skeptics to suppose that Christians are irrational to believe in a God they cannot “see.” In reality, it is irrational for skeptics to suppose that what cannot be seen does not exist. First, Christians and skeptics alike recognize black holes, electrons, laws of logic, and the force of gravity despite
