Presuppositions and Biblical Creation Account

Presuppositions, even among Christian theologians, in multiple ways affect the possible interpretations of the Genesis creation record (as evidenced by the fact that I, because I believe Genesis to be literal history, call it the “Genesis record” while others would call it the “Genesis story” or “Genesis tale”).  These presuppositions affect how we view the original audience of Genesis also: if we believe they were less intelligent than ourselves, possibly little more than the stereotypical…See More

Creation…Literally

Why don’t Christians consider the creation account in Genesis to be a literal record of creation?A plain reading of the first chapter of Genesis clearly says that the universe, and all that is in it, was created in six days. Why don’t we believe that? Is it because we don’t believe God is powerful enough to have done it that way? Are we limiting God?Is it because secular scientists have said that evolution is a fact and, therefore, science has proven that it took much longer than six literal…See More

What about Those Who Have Never Heard the Gospel?

Posted on October 29, 2015 at 2:36pm 3 Comments

The concern for those who have never heard the Gospel is common for believers everywhere. We should do all that the Lord leads us to do to get the Gospel message to everyone we can; however, there will be some, and have been some, who will never hear the Gospel in their lifetime. Let me lay out some foundational biblical truths that should guide us in our thinking on this subject.

First, we need to remember that God loves humanity enough to send His Son to die on a cross for our sins…

Worldviews, choices, and destinations.

Posted on October 29, 2015 at 2:35pm 0 Comments

There are two competing foundational worldviews; each one containing radically different end results. 

One worldview, the naturalist/humanist/secular worldview, tells us that we came into being by accident (not guided by intelligence), that the only purpose we have is the purpose we give ourselves, and that we are responsible to no higher being or cause.

The competing worldview, the Biblical worldview, claims that humans were created by God, for His purposes, and that we are…
