Regarding God's Creation
Tonight ! Webinar link below.
The recent theater showings of the movie
"Is Genesis History?" has made a big impact across the nation. It is a big impact because it contrasts the two basic opposing views of Earth history and provides explanations from PhD scientists who conclude that yes, Genesis does contain real history. The two major contrasting viewpoints are called "uniformitarianism" and "creationism".
assumes that all in the past
can and must be explained in terms of processes that can be observed in operation today. Uniformitarianism is the position of all secular institutions and it leads to the exclusion of any consideration of the involvement of a God or anything supernatural. Sometimes this exclusion is quite militant.
in contrast assumes that there
is a God and His supernatural creation activity has at times played an important role in Earth history while His sustaining activity dominates for considerable periods of time. Creationists consider the laws of physics to be one expression of God's sustaining activity.
So, strict uniformitarianism demands that there
is no God while Creationism assumes that the Bible contain real historical information although that historical information is nowhere near as complete as we would like. Creationist also argue that there are many events in Earth history that are far too large and too fast to be explained by presently observed processes.
Events that are too large and fast to fit into the uniformitarian assumption are often referred to as catastrophic events. These
catastrophic events could be triggered by God supernaturally or designed as a consequence of initial conditions and the sustained laws of physics. Most creationists would argue that both cases occur. Over the last few decades more and more formerly strict uniformitarians are agreeing that catastrophic events have played a very substantial role in Earth history.
The "Is Genesis History?" movie presents eleven PhD scientists being interviewed on location about the evidence from their field of science that supports the Biblical concept of a young supernatural creation.
The scientists include:
We will look at each of these interviews and stop to ask the question, "What are the main points this expert is making?" Recalling and discussion of the main points will help us all to understand and retain the essentials. That will build confidence we need to present the movie to family, friends, church groups, and even our pastors. That is our ultimate goal.
