03 Genesis Matters!




We offer on this page our Publications which focus on “the origins debate”. On this site these are all available free of charge.

Darwin’s Theory of Evolution is attractive to many people because on apparently scientific grounds it “proves” that we no longer need any sort of God-figure to explain the existence of this amazing universe: all has come about through no-God, natural, scientific processes. So critics rightly argue, “If the Bible gets it so wrong at the very start, why bother with any of the rest of it?”. Quite so.

Now because Darwin’s Theory is accepted as Proven Fact (even though it is nothing of the sort), many Christians meekly “re-interpret” early Genesis. They no longer read Genesis Chapters 1-11 as historical fact, (as was always the case until the so-called “Age of Enlightenment”), but as mere myth and allegory – being basically no more than ancient camp-fire stories borrowed from surrounding cultures of the time, and offering perhaps some spiritual messages for those who feel the need for that sort of thing.

This massive and wholly needless change of approach to early Genesis can be traced straight back to Darwinian Evolution. It has been immensely damaging to the Bible and the Christian Faith, and puts Christians on the back foot – unsure, shy and defensive – in conversations at school or college, at work or around and about.

The reality is that we have NOT evolved at all: not by a Darwinian, no-God blind process of chance – that is scientifically impossible; nor, our fellow Christians, have we evolved by a God-directed process of evolution – that flatly contradicts God’s Word, God’s character, God’s deeds and God’s Gospel.

So is this debate really just a sideshow for a few geeks? No chance! –  it remains as central, crucial, and hot, as ever

** “TIMELY TRUTHS FOR AN AGE OF CHALLENGE” –

Two pdf Presentations of Power Point slides and Notes, given in September 2019 and January 2020, designed to “equip, strengthen and encourage” us in our Christian discipleship. 

Session One – DARWIN AND THE GOSPEL: We consider briefly what is going on in wider society, and why, and then take as an example the widespread belief in evolution.

This belief has been found over the years to be not just the elephant in the room but rather the DINOSAUR in the room! – so pervasive, so influential, and so little noticed in its effects. We duly arrive at some “timely truths” and significant conclusions.

Session Two – ADAM TO ABRAM: We come on to examine afresh the early chapters of Genesis, still the foundation of God’s Word, still entirely trustworthy and still filled with “timely truths” in itself.

These two sessions are suitable for all-comers: Christian believers, atheists, agnostics, enquirers and wonderers, AND ESPECIALLY FOR TEENAGERS AND COLLEGE / UNIVERSITY STUDENTS.
