Creation

The Bible and the "Problem" of Time

December, 2012

Modern science makes bold insistence that it alone has, in the last 250 years or so, unlocked the true formula for determining the age of creation. Christians under the influence of this thinking go along with the assumption that the creation account in Genesis is not already clear when read in its most simple and straightforward manner. They do this by isolating Genesis 1 from the rest of Scripture so the account of creation can be dismantled piecemeal and reconstructed in whatever way is necessary to conform to the wending ways of modern science. Rather than Scripture shedding light on science, modern science becomes the light by which all other things must be understood.

Davis Young and Ralph Stearley, authors of The Bible, Rocks and Time, represent this influential school of scientific thinking. In an effort to be inclusive of all possible views of creation (young earth excepted), they have determined that the creation account in Genesis 1 is “unique” in the pages of Scripture. Consider the following quote:

We believe that those writers are on target who suggest that Genesis 1 is a literary genre unlike any other. As John Stek has put it, Genesis 1 is sui generis, a genre in a class by itself, a genre of which we have no other examples.”1

Sharing Our Creation / Creation Science Message

September, 2012

For this month’s newsletter article I will take the opportunity to share two creation / creation science messages that will help you become equipped to share and encourage you to share with others. One is The Triangle Association for the Science of Creation (TASC) upcoming, September 8, Origins 2012 Conference. The other will be a personal sharing experience with my nephew which represents our critical need to share with our youth and adults in these challenging times when the worldviews are influencing us and causing many to give up our faith in God our Creator. Perhaps these two events on the will encourage you to share with your family and friends who need to gain and hold faith in God our Creator, and Christ our Creator and Savior. Colossians 1:14-17

First, we at TASC would like to invite you to join us at the Origins 2012 Conference, Saturday, September 8, to reach the people in the greater Raleigh area, and you, in turn, please bring your children ages 6-12, teens, college students, and invite other family and friends. Our website for the conference and registering is: www.originsraleighconference.com. We learn in Isaiah 55:11 that in the sowing of God’s word, He will prosper it.
