In this episode, we look at the astounding success of Del Tackett's movie “Is Genesis History?” We revisit the idea of a commentary and study course on the whole book of Genesis. And we review a brand new book, by Pastor David Martin, about youth ministry.
In episode 19 – do we need a new Genesis commentary; how to sort out the real science from false in evolutionary articles; how to ask questions for us to answer; excursions coming up.
One writer has recently described Genesis 1:1 as the most offensive verse in the Bible. That certainly proved to be the case, when I discussed this verse with two Jehovah's Witnesses at my door.
Theistic Evolutionists and Creationists alike have, for different reasons, given an impression that the book of Genesis is actually 2 books: chapters 1 through 11, and chapters 12 through 50. In this podcast, Paul Taylor shows that we cannot understand the life, work and faith of Abraham aright, without believing the literal truth of the first 11 chapters of Genesis. Therefore, the book of Genesis should be seen as a unified whole.
News from the Mount St Helens Creation Center, and a talk about Bethlehem's Star, including a little of Paul Taylor's personal testimony. How did the Wise Men know where to go, and why were they looking for the star? And what could the star really be?
In this episode, we hear about plans for the new premises for the Mount St Helens Creation Center. Listeners are invited to help fund that project.
The main topic for the show is a response to the dialog from September 10th 2016 between Sean McDowell and atheist Ryan Bell on Premier Radio (UK)'s Unbelievable Show. Paul shows that the debate did not work, or achieve a useful object, given that the apologetic approach used was not good.
Paul outlines some of the latest news from the Mount St Helens Creation Center, including, hopefully, the imminent announcement of new premises for the ministry.
Then the episode tackles more on the issue of biblical inerrancy, which has morphed into an attack on Presuppositional Apologetics. Paul responds to a number of recent articles on this controversy, from Spencer Toy, and from Frank Turek, as well as Andy Stanley. Using his book, Only Believe, Paul brings us back to a positive view of biblical apologetics.
Attacks on the authority of Scripture have been coming thick and fast. In this episode, we look at the recent teachings of megachurch pastor Andy Stanley, and examine the reasons why he is undermining people's acceptance of the Bible as foundational truth.
There have been a number of attacks this last week on biblical truth. One of the attacks noted at the Mount St Helens Creation Center is on Presuppositional Apologetics. In this episode, Paul interacts with an interview given by Peter J Williams, and also with a critical review of Paul's book, “Only Believe”.
There have been a number of attacks on the doctrine of the Trinity, recently, from figures previously assumed to be from within the church. Others have begun to assume that it is not essential to believe in the Trinity. Is it a necessary doctrine for salvation? This is particularly noticeable among creationists. How do we relate to creationists, who do not accept the Trinity?
Presenter Paul Taylor makes the case that the doctrine of the Trinity is essential, and not just an optional extra, and that Trinitarian teaching is, or should be, at the heart of creationist teaching.
