‘We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ’ (2 Cor. 10:5).
In Romans 12:2 we read that Christians are to think differently from the world. ‘Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.’ CMI resources, such as our books and Web site, are designed to help Christians bring about this change in thinking.
They did in my life. When I first began studying the creation/ evolution issue, like many others, I had some confusion about the whole area of facts, evidence and ‘proof’. As a result, when watching well-produced evolutionary programs on television, I was often filled with anxiety because their ‘facts’ sometimes seemed to be more conclusive than our ‘facts’.
After listening to [creation ministry] audiotapes over and over, I came to understand that the ‘facts’ do not ‘speak for themselves’ but are interpreted to fit a certain view of history, either Biblical or man-made. It helped me ‘demolish’ this evolutionary nonsense.
This really helped me in dealing with evolutionary programs and articles. No matter how well produced a program is, or how well written a book or article, or how exalted the scientist who says it, if we start with God's Word it is possible to wade through the nonsense of the evolutionary interpretation of facts.
Our new book Refuting Evolution 2 (a superb sequel to the original bestseller) will help you do exactly that! Author Dr Jonathan Sarfati, a brilliant scientist, completely shatters the 'latest and greatest'; arguments from recent anticreationist articles in Scientific American magazine and others. All the points raised by evolutionists attacking Biblical creation are masterfully refuted—demonstrating that, when starting with Biblical history, science makes sense.
What a great time to be a Christian! We have so many resources that help us understand that God's Word is true.
