God Helps Design a Better Submarine
Psalm 69:34
"Let the heaven and earth praise Him, the seas, and everything that moveth therein."
Engineers who design vehicles to move through fluids face a quandary. A torpedo-shaped vehicle can move quickly and efficiently through a fluid like water, but it is difficult to maneuver precisely...

Creationism

Billions of Years for the Heavens!

The current belief is that the age of the earth is 4.6 billion years; this figure is an essential foundation for the theory of evolution. Of course, if the age of the earth really is in billions of years, the age of the universe can be no less and reasonably would be much greater; it is currently set somewhere between 13 and 17 billion years, say, 15 billion earth-years in round figures. The reason that these figures are qualified as “earth-years” will become evident in a later paragraph but first we need to define what Scripture means by, “the heavens”.

INTELLIGENT DESIGN

Book: Evolution: A Theory in CrisisThe modern Intelligent Design (ID) movement generally is held to have had its beginning in the early 1980’s. The Mystery of Life’s Origin by Thaxton, Bradley and Olson was published in 1984 as well as Denton’s Evolution: A Theory in Crisis in 1985. So thinking in an ID direction was mounting!

The Religion of Evolution

People find many different reasons for opposing creationism.  Some are simply ignorant of the scientific and biblical points which support the creationist worldview.  Very often people really believe that evolution has been proven as fact.  But in the end, those who refuse the truth are adopting evolution as an alternate religion to the Bible.

What Is Truth?

Author: 
Pastor Paul Bartz

Painting: Christ in front of Pilate1. The gospel of John stresses the themes of truth and light in the context of Christ as creating Son of God and Savior of mankind from sin, death and the devil. In stressing this theme John also contrasts truth and lie. Jesus' words about the devil being the father of lies, untruth being a part of his nature, are in John 8:44. How does this verse contrast with John 18:38-39?

Why Oppose Creation?

Those who refuse to accept the truth of creation are adopting evolution because it offers an alternate religion to the Bible. When we Christians realize why people oppose the creationist view of the world, and how their thinking works, we will be better equipped to speak to them about God’s concerns for them in the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Using Our Minds to Discover God's World

Discovery and learning are highly valued in our age. Often Christians are seen as being against discovery and learning. And, with evolution and the other claims of our day which seem to run against Christianity, sometimes we are led to believe that we should oppose these values.

God Teaches About Design in His Creation

Author: 
Pastor Paul A. Bartz

Note: Creation Moments exists to provide Biblically sound materials to the Church in the area of Bible and science relationships. This Bible study may be reproduced for group use.

The argument from design is the most basic argument for a Creator. In fact, God Himself makes use of this argument in Scripture. It is not as though God feels that He must argue with man to make His point. Rather, He knows that He has given man enough intelligence that even the most stubborn unbelief will have difficulty explaining away the design in the creation.

Extinction and God's Control of History

Author: 
Pastor Paul A. Bartz

Many Christians wonder how the fact that God is the Creator and preserver of His creation fits in with the extinctions of so many creatures.  In fact, it was this problem that made it seem as though proof of extinctions in the past was proof of evolution.

Getting to Know the Old Testament Calendar

Author: 
Pastor Robin D. Fish

From a strictly human standpoint, the claim that the earth is young is just so much double-talk. But the question of whether the earth is billions of years old, or just a couple of thousands of years old, occupies a central place in the creation/evolution debate. For some, it is the question of whether there was time for the impossible to happen - life to arise from non-life. In the mind of the Biblical Christian, however, it is not a question of defeating evolution but of what is true, what does the Bible say?

God Expects Us to Use Our Minds

Author: 
Paul A. Bartz.

While human reason has been crippled by sin, the use of our God-given minds is something God expects of us. Just as the hands of a person who has been regenerated in Christ can be turned to fruitful service for the Lord, so too, the mind and reason of one who has been regenerated in Christ can be turned to fruitful service in the Lord. We must only remember that just as even the hands of the regenerate can still fall prey to sin and its effects, so can the mind. The forgiving grace of God is, then, a daily need of the Christian that is supplied by God.
