17 Genesis 12 and Abram

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.

The Mountain And The Word – Episode 015

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.

The Mountain and The Word – Episode 011

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.

The Mountain and The Word – Episode 010

In this episode, presenter Paul Taylor looks at recent remarks by apologist William Lane Craig, in which he states that what he calls “Young Earth Creationism” is embarrassing. Paul responds to this allegation, showing that Craig has given a false authority to evolutionary science, and even to science per se, ignoring the true authority of Scripture. Paul goes on to look at Craig's principle apologetic method, the Kalam Cosmological Argument, and shows that the god who is “proved” by the KCA is not even the God of the Bible, and, therefore, must be a false god or an idol.
