It is a common challenge for the modern Christian to unify his belief in the Bible, which describes God as the Creator of all, with the current trend in popular thinking that all living things evolved through random modification and subsequent natural selection. The commonly resulting belief is “Theistic Evolution”: an attempt to combine the Creation and Evolution theories. Theistic evolutionists believe the Bible the inspired word of God, yet also believe man’s existence on Earth to be derived from millions of years of evolution.

We consider the philosophical and theological credibility of ‘Theistic Evolution’ with particular reference to the origin and development of Man.

Genesis 1-2: A Harmonised and Historical Reading
I’m pleased to announce the publication of this book. Through a close examination of the scriptural text it is a defence of the integrity of Genesis 1-2. While the book is set specifically against evolutionary creationist treatments of these chapters as dis-harmonised and non-historical, it nevertheless serves to explain why any liberal biblical critical handling of the early chapters of Genesis is faulty.

It can be purchased from lulu.com via the following link: http://www.lulu.com/ascentpublications All proceeds from this book will go to The National Association for People Abused in Childhood (https://napac.org.uk/).

Theistic Evolution: On the Origin of Man - Christadelphian Answers
Follow Bible Truth and Prophecy on WordPress.com Theistic Evolution: On the Origin of Man It is a common challenge for the modern Christian to unify his belief in the Bible, which describes God as the Creator of all, with the current trend in popular thinking that all living things evolved through random modification and subsequent natural selection. The commonly resulting belief is “Theistic Evolution”: an attempt to combine the Creation and Evolution theories. Theistic evolutionists believe the Bible the inspired word of God, yet also believe man’s existence on Earth to be derived from millions of years of evolution. We consider the philosophical and theological credibility of ‘Theistic Evolution’ with particular reference to the origin and development of Man. Argument 1: The Origin and Trend of Morality Evolution insists humans developed from less complex animal life. (1) Therefore the initial moral state of the human species must be zero (amoral). By contrast the Bible insists the first man was created by a direct act of God, and created in a state described as ‘very good:’ So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them… God saw all that he had made, and it was very good. And there was evening, and there was morning-the sixth day. (Genesis 1:27,) The Bible also describes the first man as displaying positive moral attributes by tending and caring for other living things, albeit at God’s behest: The LORD God took  the  man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work  it and take care of  it (Genesis 2:15) This results in a natural contradiction between the two theories. Resolution of this contradiction may be possible: one could argue a species is not human until it evidences a positive moral behaviour (a ...

Part 1: CREATION – A CLOSER LOOK AT GENESIS – INTRO – Don Pearce
Part 1 Over the next few weeks we will be serializing this fascinating article that recently appeared in the Bible Magazine (Fall 2015)- The result of a lifetime of study, Bro Don has put together this extensive document, that we hope will assist those who have struggled with this fundamental subject, helping all to come to a clear and complete understanding of the first chapter of Genesis. A note from the author….. “ Genesis, the bedrock of the scriptures, the foundation stone, is examined in detail and I aim to provide clear and concise explanations to many of the questions that are asked about this opening chapter of God’s Holy Word.” CREATION – A CLOSER LOOK AT GENESIS CH 1 Thy word IS true from the beginning. Psa. 119:160 Over 1,900 years ago, the Lord Jesus revealed one of the signs of our times by stating what will be his challenge to the nations when he calls upon them to accept to accept his position as Israel’s new King. This challenge follows on from the great destruction of Israel’s enemies on the mountains of Israel at the Battle of Armageddon. The Jews left in their land will have accepted their deliverer as their Messiah, and there unfolds a great work to bring the scattered Jews back to their homeland and to recognise their Messiah. In parallel will be the great work for the saints to bring the nations into submission to Christ’s rule. The message has been clearly set out. And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people, Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of ...

Is the firmament of Genesis chapter 1 solid? Part 1-Matthew Davies / Mark Allfree (Nottingham Forest Road, 2015)
Study 1 Is the firmament of Genesis chapter 1 solid? Introduction There is a view that is gaining currency within Christadelphian circles that Genesis chapter 1, far from being a true historical account of the origins of the heavens and the earth, is a polemic against ancient near eastern mythology. It is seen as an attack on the creation stories of other ancient civilizations. In their stories the universe begins as a watery chaos, ruled over by sea monsters. These sea monsters are defeated by the gods, who then argue amongst themselves about the creative plan. With great effort on their part the universe is brought into being. In stark contrast, the God of the Hebrews, the God of Genesis 1, is the one who creates the sea monsters in the first place. God is alone and unopposed in all that He says and does. He speaks and the creative work is done. According to this view, it is a mistake to view Genesis chapter 1 as a true historical account of the Divine work of creation. This was never its intended function. This allows for the accommodation of evolutionary theory into the creative narrative. Is the firmament in Genesis 1 a solid dome? A significant foundation stone for this understanding of Genesis 1 is the assertion that the firmament in Genesis 1 is portrayed as being solid. The reasoning is that ancient near eastern civilisations believed that the earth was flat, supported by two pillars, and that the firmament was a solid, dome-like structure in which the sun, moon and stars were set. The waters below this firmament represented the seas, and above the solid, dome-like firmament was the ocean of heaven. It is further reasoned that the writer of the book of Genesis, in his description of God’s creative work, assumes that this understanding of the cosmos is correct. Since we now know that ...

Can “Special Creation” and TE/EC be taught from the same platform? -.Christadelphian Answers
Follow Bible Truth and Prophecy on WordPress.com One of the refrains we hear from those who support or accept that TE/EC can be accepted in Central Fellowship is “I am happy if you wish to continue to believe in God creating the world in six literal days – just allow me my belief that we got here by God using evolution.”But can this position be maintained Biblically? Do the Scriptures of Truth, that should be the arbiter in these discussions, allow for such a proposition that two opposing views of our God be promulgated from the same platform?What does Scripture say? Firstly let the Apostle Paul issue a note of caution – “For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace” – 1 Corinthians 14:33. The context of the whole section in which this verse is located is the counsel of the Apostle that there should not be differing voices in the Ecclesia. We should all be speaking the same thing – to the edification of the body as a whole and not to the ‘glory’ of the individual. The Apostle’s inspired comment in verse 33 is also to be seen in the context of verses 7 to 9 which in turn are based on Numbers 10:1 – 9. “And even things without life giving sound, whether pipe or harp, except they give a distinction in the sounds, how shall it be known what is piped or harped? For if the trumpet gives an uncertain sound, who shall prepare himself to the battle? So likewise ye, except ye utter by the tongue words easy to be understood, how shall it be known what is spoken? For ye shall speak into the air.” Can we imagine what would have happened in the camp of Israel if there had been ...

Are Genesis 1 and 2 two different creation stories? Theistic Evolution
The theistic evolutionists suggest that Genesis 1 gives a transcendent description of God but in Genesis 2 we have a more anthropomorphic depiction (human characteristics applied to God), and that this is good evidence for Genesis 1 and 2 representing two differing stories.

Theistic Evolution: A Challenge For Our Times.
Christadelphians 'DO NOT' believe in Theistic Evolution! But what is Theistic Evolution, Evolutionary Creationism or GDE (God Directed Evolution)? This Video Explains what it is, how it first appeared in the Christadelphian Community 50+ years ago and It shows how the Christadelphians dealt with the issue. Today, many 'Christians' have accepted TE as fact and embrace the so-called scientific evidence in support of TE. Today the issue has resurfaced in our community mainly due to key Bible truths being undermined, such as.... the inspiration of the whole of the Bible is no longer accepted by some as truth, (2 Tim 3:16) they claim the opening chapters of the book of Genesis is not a historical account and that the text has been added to and believe various other delusions to justify their convictions. The presenter of this video takes us through some of the questions and answers that are presented as proof of TE, showing that with only the smallest amount of scriptural knowledge coupled with an acceptance that the whole of the Bible is Inspired (God Breathed) by God, the 'theory' of TE is easily dismissed, just as it was in the 1960's when those who promoted such views were withdrawn from due to serious error. Watch this video and understand the arguments put forth and be edified and encouraged by the truth of the scriptures. This video shows how Theistic Evolution is an attempt to change the unchangeable word of the creator God to make it fit with so called scientific evidence. The video shows how Theistic Evolution is incompatible with the Bible and the Christadelphian Statement of Faith Watch in Full HD below - Click Image to play ...
