Hello everyone, I hope this post has found you all doing well! I realize I have not posted in quite some time, I apologize for my absence. We’re still waiting for housing, hanging out in hotels, and site seeing. All four of us jammed into a small room filled with luggage and beds make my inability to focus on what to write a lot harder. So, rather than give you a confused explanation of the next “branch” in our family tree I thought I’d share some very helpful lectures.
Dr. Georgia Purdom is a geneticist that works for Answers in Genesis. She’s one of my favorite modern scientists, not just because she’s a Biblical young earth creationist, but also because she’s really good at explaining things to my level. In the videos below, she deals with Adam and Eve. Particularly, she goes through the evidence for their literal existence. There is a great deal of professing Christians that suggest Genesis is poetry, or stories for moral examples, rather than historical narrative. Many will say God used evolution over millions of years to get man from ape ancestors. This comes with steep consequences, such as calling our Lord and Savior a liar, as He frequently talked about Genesis. It alters or does away with, fundamental doctrines of the faith, like original sin.
We do not, and should not, base our faith in scientific evidence. The Bible is our standard and authority, the Word of God is where we stake our claim to salvation by the grace of God alone. We enjoy science, we study science and praise God when we see how He has designed things. His creation cries out, as a witness to His existence. As such, especially when we discuss the “evolution” of man, we can look and see that He has left us without excuse. Science has failed utterly to show mans evolving but has found some truly beautiful evidence of Creation. I hope these lectures will bless you as much as they blessed me, and I hope to be back to a normal posting schedule soon. As always, beloved brethren, be good Berean’s and study to show yourselves approved.
