Sorry for the long delay, but have become enamored with a couple of sites you may find interesting with excellent article.
First, Answers in Genesis is an apologetics (i.e., Christianity-defending) ministry, dedicated to enabling Christians to defend their faith and to proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ effectively. We focus particularly on providing answers to questions surrounding the book of Genesis, as it is the most-attacked book of the Bible. We also desire to train others to develop a biblical worldview, and seek to expose the bankruptcy of evolutionary ideas, and its bedfellow, a “millions of years old” earth (and even older universe).
AiG teaches that “facts” don’t speak for themselves, but must be interpreted. That is, there aren’t separate sets of “evidences” for evolution and creation—we all deal with the same evidence (we all live on the same earth, have the same fossils, observe the same animals, etc.). The difference lies in how we interpret what we study. The Bible—the “history book of the universe”—provides a reliable, eye-witness account of the beginning of all things, and can be trusted to tell the truth in all areas it touches on. Therefore, we are able to use it to help us make sense of this present world. When properly understood, the “evidence” confirms the biblical account.
For an elaboration of AiG’s presuppositional thrust check out our Answers section—for example, learn how the Bible offers the best explanation of the world’s geology, astronomy, and genetics. Also, for information on the issues we deal with and which ones we don’t, see “Where Do We Draw the Line?”
Please visit our ministry news page for the latest updates about the Creation Museum, the Ark Encounter, and our overall ministry.
Second, the Christian Research Institute exists to provide Christians worldwide with carefully researched information and well-reasoned answers that encourage them in their faith and equip them to intelligently represent it to people influenced by ideas and teachings that assault or undermine orthodox, biblical Christianity. In carrying out this mission, CRI’s strategy is expressed by the acronym E-Q-U-I-P:
The “E” in EQUIP represents the word essentials. CRI is committed to the maxim: “In essentials unity, in nonessentials liberty, and in all things charity.”
The “Q” in the acronym EQUIP represents the word questions. In addition to focusing on essentials, CRI answers people’s questions regarding cults, culture, and Christianity.
The “U” in the word EQUIP represents the word user-friendly. As much as possible, CRI is committed to taking complex issues and making them understandable and accessible to the lay Christian.
This brings us to the “I” in EQUIP, which stands for integrity. Recall Paul’s admonition: “Watch your life and doctrine closely. Persevere in them, because if you do, you will save both yourself and your hearers.”
Finally, the “P” in the acronym EQUIP represents the word para-church. CRI is deeply committed to the local church as the God-ordained vehicle for equipping, evangelism, and education.
Third, Risen Jesus is a Christian Apologetic site with great resources to either read, listen to, or watch. I first heard an interview with Mike Licona, PhD, by Scott M. Sullivan, PhD..I find both characters and interesting people with much to teach us about Christian apologetics. You may just find his article I’m a Doubting Thomas! It seems to be very true that we all doubt at times and our kids will have the same problem IF we do not prepare them and help them grow in their faith. Meaning that we have to help them to come to the conclusion on their own based upon their own studies and research.
Godspeed, Good Reads, & Happy Viewing!
