Removing the Stones

On this date in 1997, I gave my life to Christ. This week, I had the opportunity to hear Ken Ham of Answers in Genesis speak at a homeschool convention in South Carolina. I genuinely enjoy listening to Ken speak. I think I’ve heard every presentation he has at least four times over, but I…

What you’re about to read is what happens when a man who doubts the historical veracity of the Bible finds something in the Bible that contradicts his loosely Bible-inspired theology. Basically, he’s stubbed an opinion on a passage of Scripture. It’s sad. It’s instructive. It underscores the truth of Jesus’ warning in John 3:12 about the interconnectedness of…

Evolutionary Theology: Where Scientific and Biblical Illiteracy Go Hand in Hand

Ever since the publication of Already Gone (and more recently Already Compromised), Answers in Genesis has been increasingly pumping out general apologetics materials. Why?
