"If the foundations are destroyed, what can the righteous do?" (Psalm 11:3)
The foundations of Christianity are under attack. People have left the Word of God as their absolute authority and have replaced it with the word of man. No longer do we have God as our starting point. All things are open to debate. None more so than the origin of man. Science has put forth the proposition that we have no Creator God, time and chance had their dance and from monkeys we became man. This idea of evolution without God has exploded among the worldly. Finally, they could leave all this god stuff behind.
Since Darwin had first put forth the idea, it has been almost unanimously adopted by scientists and taught as fact to generations of school children. Generations have been instructed by those who oppose God and its effects are being seen in the church. Why believe in God and his Word when you have been taught that most of what it says is wrong? If Genesis isn't true then why believe the rest?
The situation is bleak and many are seeking to take up the banner of God's word and confront the deceiver head on. Ken Ham has been leading this charge for most of his life. Recognizing the danger that evolution presents to Christianity, he has pushed the fields of Creation Science and Creation Evangelism forward in a quest to show the world that the Word of God is sure and always to be trusted. With his ministry Answers in Genesis, he provides resources to defend the faith against those who would seek to destroy it. The team has also built the Creation Museum where the truth of God's Word can be witnessed in the story of creation and in the gospel of Jesus Christ.
One of the best ways to learn more about these issues and how to confront them is through Ken Ham's book The Lie: Evolution / Millions of Years. In this revised and expanded 25th anniversary edition Ken lays out in detail the dangers of evolutionary thinking and of removing the Bible as our foundation for truth. Everything is clearly and powerfully explained and the steps we must take to regain our foothold are presented as well. This book truly is an eye-opener and I highly recommend it to everyone.
I'd like to thank Master Books for sending me this free copy for review.
