Does It Matter?
Many Christians today find themselves in a culture they find foreign. They remember a culture that, even a few years ago, seemed to reflect Biblical understanding and truth. But, the changes in the culture now make them wonder “What Happened?” The culture has become hostile to Biblical thinking and truth. The reason for much of this can be related to how the church has stood on foundational truths found in Genesis.
Why should Christians care about the old-earth vs young-earth debate? Does it matter what we believe about the age of the earth? The answer may surprise you. In both our culture and our churches, we are seeing the consequences of “what we believe”.
Dr. Ronald C. Marks, Professor of Chemistry, has served and taught in local churches across the United States for the past thirty years. Serving as an ordained Deacon, Elder, and Lay Pastor, and trained as a scientist, he has observed how the church’s view of Genesis has impacted its ministry and our culture. Our view of Genesis does matter. It matters because how we interpret, view, and apply the truth in Genesis impacts:
- Our View of God – producing a Crisis of Authority
- Our View of Man – producing a Crisis of Identity
- Our View of Truth – producing a Crisis of Knowledge
- Our View of the Gospel – producing a Crisis of Sin and Salvation
You will not want to miss this relevant and clear discussion of why it matters what we believe about the creation and the age of the earth. Come join us on Thursday night, April 20, at 7:00 p.m. The presentation is hosted by the Creation Study Group and Second Presbyterian Church, 105 River Street in Greenville SC.
