Many Christians accept the Big Bang model of creation, believing that the sudden creation of the universe comports with the Genesis account of creation. But Big Bang cosmology fails to match up with the biblical view of the origins of the universe. In this brief notice, I will quickly point out four major problems facing the Big Bang model, as viewed from a biblical standpoint. Continue reading

The world needs Christianity, not only for personal salvation but for a moral foundation. Cornelius Van Til spoke of the progress of unbelief in becoming more consistent as an “integration downward into the void.” That is, the more fully thought-out and applied unbelief becomes, the worse its results will be.
Postmillennialist believe Scripture teaches that in the long run (not by the year 2018!), the Christian faith will overwhelm the world, leading to a long era of righteousness, peace, and prosperity. But we also believe there will be ups and downs along the way, such as we are experiencing today as unbelief has gained the upper hand.
Nevertheless, as the real-world implications of unbelief become more obvious, its results will become less appealing. God will use the horror of unbelieving culture to cause a response against it, furthering the Christian faith. The unbelief controlling evolutionary thought will be one of those sparks for the resurgence of the Christian faith. And because of this, there is a way in which we can thank Dr. David Barash for helping us to see the horror of atheism (for those who did not learn it from the French Revolution or Soviet Communism).

[Gentry note: Postmillennialism affirms the impact of God’s kingdom on this world. It also recognizes the original creation not only set up this world, but becomes a paradigm for its redemptive renewal through the new creation principle. It also affirms its eschatological hope by means of a confident commitment to of God’s revelation in Scripture. Consequently, the Reformed postmillennialist is committed to Six-day Creation as revealed in Scripture. This article is helpful for reminding us of the dangers of Darwinism.]
Review of The Darwin Effect: Its Influence on Nazism, Eugenics, Racism, Communism, Capitalism, and Sexism
This work covers the effects of the Darwinian revolution on 19th and 20th century thinking. It is striking how pervasive and harmful this effect has been. Because this work is so rich in diverse topics, I focus on only some of them and concentrate on developments in the latter part of the 20th century.
Darwin was not simply a product of his time and culture. To the contrary, he effectively steered his culture. His ideas were aggressively promoted and they transformed societies. Moreover, the interactions of Darwinism with so many different strands of human thought were, and are, much too pervasive to be dismissed as ‘misunderstandings’ or ‘misinterpretations’ of Darwinism.

A straightforward reading of the Bible indicates that God created in six 24-hour days a little over 6,000 years ago. This is the way the church has understood it for most of the church’s history,1 and the way Hebrew scholars have always understood it.
However, with the rise of long-age claims in geology led by James Hutton2 and Charles Lyell3 about 200 years ago, some conservative Christians became intimidated. Continue reading

They maintain, “There is little disagreement among zoologists about the taxonomic classification of animals”1, p. 156 Creation biologists agree. Continue reading
