The Christian Worldview

On January 17 of this year the pastor of Grace Point Church, Bentonville, Arkansas asked one of the AIG (Answers in Genesis) speakers to avoid talking about the part of Genesis where God says He made us male and female and the part that says marriage is the union of a man and a woman after the AIG speaker mentioned these things in the early morning service. And then the pastor removed the AIG presentation from the church’s website as soon as he could get to it and apologized for inviting the AIG speaker to speak the following Sunday. Whatever happened to our Christian worldview?

Please answer the following questions before you read the rest of this article:

Jesus Came, He’s Coming Again!

Jesus is coming soon! These words encourage and inspire believers around the world. We celebrate His first coming at Christmas every year. We understand the signs preceding His first coming and when He came. First, we must realize that His coming was a supernatural event that broke natural laws. It also superseded everything that had happened from the creation of the world. The very Creator God humbled Himself and came to earth in human form through a virgin, which is biologically impossible. The human mind cannot comprehend a being that is totally God and totally human. It can be accepted for the fact that it is, but not fully comprehended.

Agnostic Surgeon Viggo Olsen, MD Discovers Truth!

By Mark Ellis, taken from God Reports, June 8, 2012

Dr. Viggo Olsen has more than twenty letters of academic and professional achievement following his name and is a diplomate of the American Board of Surgery. His brilliant surgical career is documented in the book, Daktar: Diplomat in Bangladesh.

At the beginning of his medical practice he believed in science, a view that held little room for religious faith. “I viewed Christianity and the Bible through agnostic eyes, feeling that modern science had outmoded much of this religious sentiment,” he recalls.

Creation and the Problem of Evil

Perhaps the most frequent argument used by skeptics against the Christian faith is that a good, loving, and all-powerful God wouldn't possibly allow evil (along with sorrow, pain, bloodshed, etc.) into his world. Evil obviously exists in our world. It is all around us. Thus, the biblical God can’t possibly exist. If he did, and he was indeed omnipotent, he would obviously do something about it! It is not only skeptics, however, who struggle with this “problem of evil.” The Christian who shares his faith will find that this question probably causes more people to doubt the validity of the Bible and the Christian faith than any other.

Atheism Rising: What Can We Do About It?

We are faced with an alarming trend of rising atheism in our youth today. I will address this undesired trend and provide actions that parents, youth , and we as individuals can implement to help decrease this trend. Otherwise, as President Reagan said, “A nation not under God is a nation already gone under.” Let us all please rise to the challenge and reverse this trend.

God of Creation - God of Miracles

As scientific creationists we can, if we are not careful, become focused on our main issue of the historical and scientific accuracy of the Creation / Fall / Flood / Tower of Babel account of Genesis 1-11 to the point that we fail to remember that our greater mission is to uphold the authority of the entire Bible. But our underlying and greatest mission as believers in Jesus is to make disciples as we go into the world. That was the last of all the commands of our Lord Jesus that we are to obey. Our effort to uphold the truth of Genesis is only one important tool that helps Christians to effectively present the gospel as being a reasonable thing for the world to believe by faith.

With Respect to the Origins Debate, Dr. Schweitzer is Right, We All Need to Put God First

As many Christians interested in the science of creation know, Dr. Mary Schweitzer is the paleontologist who published a 2005 article in Science magazine, “Soft-tissue vessels and cellular preservation in Tyrannosaurus rex,“ 1
