Join us at Hope on Saturday July 20th at 1pm for a presentation by Dr. Gary Locklair of Concordia University Wisconsin: Creation is Reasonable

“Four evidences that argue powerfully for God’s creative activity.”

Is it reasonable to believe that the universe is the result of a special creative act of God? Is it reasonable to reject the evolutionary model for the origins of the universe? Must Christians feel as if there is a great disconnect between their faith and science?

Can you share why you accept the creation account to an honest skeptic? Can you do so in an engaging and understandable way?

The Bible clearly shows that God created everything in six days at the beginning. The universe and life did not naturally develop over eons of time. But what if you need to share creation with an unbeliever or someone who accepts evolution?

Since God did create everything, His world clearly demonstrates that fact.

Let’s investigate how four evidences argue powerfully for God’s creative activity

The Fine Tuning argument demonstrates the creation of the universe

The testimony of Information Theory shows the creation of life

The Fossil evidence supports the creation of diverse life

The Image of God confirms the creation of human beings
