Evolution versus Christianity: Why You Really Do Have to Choose

I once said God could have used evolution and that we had to allow for long ages in the days of the Creation Week. The following excerpt from my book, Defending Genesis: How We Got Here & Why It Maters, explains my dilemma at that point and why we really do have to choose between the authority of God’s Word and the claims of men who’ve interpreted the evidence by science chained to pure naturalism, despite claims to the contrary by Michael Zimmerman and BioLogos.

A Ready Defense: Living Fossils

One of my favorite BBC television shows is Primeval. Oh, I know the show [like almost all BBC fare] presupposes millions of years of microbes-to-man evolution, but what can I say?

There are some who say that Jesus Christ never lived or, at the very least, we can’t prove that He really ever lived. But of course He did, as we will demonstrate. I call this one the Skeptic’s Lie. A true Skeptic believes that we really cannot know anything for sure. One is tempted to…
