Worlds of Creation: Mercury

Mercury is a little planet with big implications. Appearing much like Earth’s moon, this small world is barren, cratered, rocky, and lifeless. It is a world of extremes, with temperatures on the day side reaching 800 degrees Fahrenheit, and temperatures on the night side dropping to 280 degrees below zero. The smallest of the eight classical planets, Mercury frustrates secular thinking, but confirms the creativity of the Lord.

Worlds of Creation: The Sun

The sun is a creation of God to give light upon the Earth and to govern the day and separate light from dark. And the sun does exactly these things. It illuminates the Earth and governs the day by determining its boundary; if the sun is above the horizon, it is day, otherwise it is night. But the way in which the sun fulfills its God-ordained role is fascinating, and altogether unexpected.

Worlds of Creation: The History of Discovery

The solar system is a delightful example of the creativity of the Lord. It is beautiful and interesting, and a wonderful example of how the Lord hides fascinating truths in nature for us to discover over time. We know so much about the solar system today, and it is far different and more interesting than our ancestors could have ever imagined.

Denying the Holy Spirit

Our critic of the week is Ned who has taken issue with our recently posted articles demonstrating that the Bible teaches the doctrine of the Trinity. In particular, Ned rejects the Holy Spirit as the third person of the Trinity. But is his reasoning cogent and consistent with Scripture?

The Good News About Hell

We can hardly imagine anything worse than eternal conscious torment. And yet, there is good news about hell! Yes, the reality of hell should cause us to praise God and appreciate His righteousness, mercy, and love. But how can we reconcile the existence of hell with a loving God?

The Trinity Part 3: Eternally Distinct

We now examine the third and final principles of the Trinity, which is this: the three persons of God are each fully God and are eternally distinct from each other. In other words, the Father is not the Son or the Spirit, nor is the Son the Spirit, but each is fully God and this has always been that way and will always be that way.

The Trinity Part 2: The Three Persons

In the previous article we defined the doctrine of the Trinity in terms of three principles. Then we proceeded to show that the Bible clearly teaches the first principle of the Trinity: that there is one and only one God. Having established this, we now move on to ask if the second principle of the Trinity is biblical.

The Trinity Part 1: Monotheism

If we are to have a correct understanding of God, then we must accept what God has said about Himself. This is why the Trinity is an essential Christian doctrine. Many people deny what the Bible says about God’s nature, and instead place their faith in a god they have produced from their own imagination – a god that is easier to understand. The problem is, an imaginary god cannot save you. Only the real God can. And the real God is Triune.

Natural Selection – Part 3: Biblical Issues

In the previous two articles, we have examined the principle of natural selection – the observation that organisms better suited to their environment will tend to survive and reproduce more successfully than those organisms less suited. In this third installment we will contrast the claims of “continuous environmental tracking” with what the Bible teaches concerning adaptation.

Natural Selection – Part 2: Adaptation

Natural-selection-deniers make some claims that are directly contrary to the Bible. Furthermore, they tend to misunderstand the concept of biological adaptation, and make basic errors in logic. In this article, we will explore these errors, and how they might have been avoided if proper scientific protocol had been followed.

Natural Selection – Part 1

What exactly is natural selection? Is it the same as evolution? Does it really occur? And who came up with the idea? Unfortunately, a few creationists have greatly misunderstood natural selection, and have used faulty arguments to try to convince others of their misunderstanding. It is important that we understand this topic properly, both from a scientific perspective and from a biblical perspective, so that we do not inadvertently promote error.

Is the Earth Really Round?

In 1957, the Soviet Union launched Sputnik, the first manmade object to achieve earth orbit. People all over the world could see this satellite as it passed overhead. Sputnik was equipped with radio antennas to broadcast a series of pulses which could be detected by amateur radios. In the years that followed, many other spacecraft – some manned, some unmanned – were placed in earth orbit. Many of these took photographs of the earth. For the first time, human beings were able to see pictures of the earth from above. These pictures confirmed what the Bible had taught millennia earlier; the earth is round and hangs upon nothing (Job 26:7,10).

A Round Earth, Natural Selection, and Dinosaurs

What do a round Earth, natural selection, and dinosaurs have in common? They are all things that are demonstrably true and biblical that some professing Christians deny. All of these things are mentioned or implied in Scripture. And they are scientifically provable. Yet, some Christians claim that such things are false or even anti-biblical! When Christians deny things that are observable, provable, and biblical, it is dishonoring to the Lord and makes unbelievers less likely to embrace the Christian worldview.
