The Foundations – Ken Ham DVD set (A Review)

Ken Ham is the nation’s leading spokesperson for Young Earth Creationism (YEC). Ken has spoken at hundreds and hundreds of events all over the world, talking about how all of the major doctrines of the church, and issues we face in life, have their origins in the book of Genesis. While Answers in Genesis had previously released teaching videos from Mr. Ham on his key topics, they realized that they needed to revise and update those teachings with new state-of-the-art technology and graphics. So they released a newer series entitled, “The Foundations (Psalm 11:3)“. This set contains 12 sessions (30-minutes each) on 6 DVDs. The topics addressed are (each in two parts): Death the Enemy In Six Days Always Ready (Evangelism and Apologetics) One Blood, One Race (Racism) The Relevance of Genesis Revealing the Unknown God As a staunch YEC adherent myself, and as a parent, I want my children to have the opportunity to hear these teachings as a part of a well-rounded instruction on the topic of origins. I believe that a personal Creator God made everything that exists in six literal 24-hour days, but I also teach my children the theory of Evolution, and the Intelligent Design models as well. They need to be presented with all of the views while they are still in my home, so we can discuss them and they won’t be caught off guard later when they hear views that oppose my personal beliefs. I don’t want them to wonder, “Why didn’t Dad tell me about this view? I wonder what he is trying to hide?” I would challenge parents who believe in Intelligent Design (but not a personal Creator), or unguided Macro-Evolution, or other various Old-Earth views of origins, to do what I do and introduce your children to all of the competing theories. I believe you owe it to your children to allow them to hear the YEC model taught and defended, and no one is more famous for teaching that approach than Ken Ham. This is a video set that needs to be a part of your home, Christian school or church library. The DVD set also comes with a Leader Guide and a Participant Guide for group study.

Did C.S. Lewis Believe in Evolution?

I have read most of C.S. Lewis‘ non-fiction books, and have always been intrigued with his perspective on the topic of Evolution. He was certainly not a young-earth creationist, but his precise views are a bit obscure. However, this video shares some personal letters and hand-written notations by Lewis in books that he owned and kept in his personal library that help to shed light on this intriguing topic.

God and Stephen Hawking (John Lennox refutes “The Grand Design”)

I was reading an excellent article this morning by Dr. John Lennox, professor of Mathematics at the University of Oxford, refuting the concepts contained in Dr. Stephen Hawking‘s book, The Grand Design. The article was contained in Dr. Ravi Zacharias‘ fine publication, Just Thinking. http://www.rzim.org/just-thinking/stephen-hawking-and-god/ Having read Stephen Hawking’s book, I thought John Lennox put into words what I would say about this book myself. This is not a book of hard science, as Dr. Hawking would have us believe, but rather a book of Philosophy (which Dr. Hawking ironically seems to feel is now useless) and Metaphysics. Far from giving us a definite Scientific explanation for how the universe created itself through the laws of physics (the book’s stated goal), it hypothesizes about many non-proven theories that are really speculative science-fiction, rather than observable science. John Lennox demonstrates how the existence of the laws of Physics (Gravity for example) do NOT disprove the existence of God (as Stephen Hawking claims), but are rather evidence for Him. I am thankful for brilliant scholars like Dr. Lennox who are willing to challenge the intellectual elite and expose when they are merely promoting a presuppositional bias, rather than doing real Science. I would also encourage you to watch this lecture by Dr. Lennox where he explains his objections to this book in more detail. Israel Wayne is an Author and  Conference Speaker.
