What has the church traditionally taught about God? Our church forefathers crafted a concise statement about God in what we’ve come to call The Apostles’ Creed. Two words express the core of His being and character: He is Father Almighty. How did God express that almightiness? By creating the heavens…

"In the beginning". Most people familiar with the Bible know these are the opening words of the Book of books. A LOT of controversy surrounding the opening chapters of Genesis. What is it that you believe about how all things came to be? And what about all the other creation stories that were floating around, even in Moses' day? Which story is the true one? Join the Grace United Crew as we begin our trek through the first book of THE book.
In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. Worldview- A particular philosophy of life or conception of the world. Biblical Worldview- Filters a philosophy of life through the teaching of the Bible. -- What it is not: Merely Christian Morals. Not a few verses that you like to live by. Not…
As we’ve been looking at the story of creation in Genesis, we’ve seen that the Bible teaches that God created the universe, all the animals, and human beings. The question we must ask is whether God indeed created these things, or whether they evolved by natural processes. Whenever you talk about creation,…

to the Evolutionist: In the beginning there was nothing. And nothing said to itself, “Let us become something, explode, and become an ordered universe that is governed by laws of science, physics, and mathematics. Let us become a universe that is able to sustain life. And it happened. All of the universe…

Evidence #1 There are no transitional links and intermediate forms in either the fossil record or the modern world. Therefore, there is no actual evidence that evolution has occurred either in the past or the present. Evidence #2 Natural selection (the supposed evolution mechanism, along with mutations)…

Often, even as followers of Jesus, we find our immediate response regarding behavioral psychological issues to be more in line with an unbelieving, materialistic, naturalistic worldview. This, in spite of the fact that Jesus regularly dealt with, talked about, and affirmed the reality of the meta-physical, the unseen spiritual world in which we live. At the very least, we should pause and pray, consider, and seek the LORD in the situations in which we find ourselves in relation to the people around us in regard to both their and our behavior. Maybe there's more to humans that random, electrical impulses, synapses, and chemicals. Where do we draw the line anyhow? And who gets to decide where that line even is? God has made a world full of powerful elements. Medicine can be good. We ought to trust in God and be wise. We are to live by faith.

The King of Glory
The common trope of a Christian Bible riddled with the relics of religious myths leading its adherents into an unscientific stance toward reality is more of a projection than it is a perception. It turns out that atheistic intellectuals are often the perpetrators of macro-myths which poison the pot of academic discourse despite the presence of otherwise rational ingredients.

Genesis 09-14-08 01-01 Intro: Video “Genesis: Apollo 8 Creation Story” If we step back from life for a second we see with wonderment the world around us. If we could step into outer space we would see with awe the vastness of it and our existence would be questioned. Why am I here? What is my purpose?…

Text: Genesis 1:1-2 This is our first glimpse of God from eternity past. A God that is creating (v.1) and a God that is moving (v.2). Here, the Spirit of God is in an ACTIVE state. It seems that Theistic Evolution presents the role of God as passive with creation. They seem to think that God was just…
What about Creationism? Is Evolution real? Can a Christian believe in evolution and still be a Christian? You wouldn't think this question would be relevant on Easter, but the answer might apply to this day more than you realize. Man's relationship with God began at the time of creation. The need for a Savior was because of what happened in the Garden of Eden. It all goes back to Genesis.
