This controversy about the age of the universe and the age of the earth has been growing in the church for the last 50 years. It's about time that the church comes to grips with time.
Dr. Turek sets the stage by first giving 3 powerful evidences for God as the Creator. Then he compares a great controversy from 400 years ago when the Earth was considered as the center of the universe. He sheds the light on this, that when God's revelation in nature indicated the Earth revolved around the sun from the telescopes of Copernicus and Galileo, the church realized that the Bible was not a text about astronomy. In the battle about the age of the Earth that rages today, Dr. Turek brings people back to Scripture, asking what does it really say. The Greatest miracle in the Bible is Genesis 1:1, that God created the universe out of nothing, in the Big Bang, or better the Big Flash.
This lecture should be heard in every church in the country that has been influenced by young-earth creationism. There cannot be real inherent conflict between the Bible and science, because both the Bible and nature have been authored by God. There is only conflict with some people's interpretation of Scripture.
Impact Apologetics, please get this important topical lecture into the Christian bookstores across America, so that the church can offer a credible Christian worldview to a hurting world, to scientists as well as non-scientists.
