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.
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.
This episode discusses what the Mount St Helens Creation Center is able to do in support of education – especially Christian education. Also, presenter Paul Taylor reviews a new book, jointly published by Master Books and the Ark Encounter, entitled How Many Animals Were on the Ark.
