Creation and Genesis 1
11/30/2011 - Jeff DownsThis past summer (August) Greenville Seminary hosted a conference on the topic of creation. The two speakers were Drs. Jonathan Sarfati and Joseph Pipa. GPTS recently received the video of the conference and I was given permission to post Dr. Pipa's first lecture titled "What Genesis 1 Teaches About Creation" During this lecture Dr. Pipa presents a exegetical case for a young earth.

Dr. Pipa is the president of GPTS and the author of this recent commentary on Galatians, as well as this book on the Sabbath.
By the way, our next theology conference A Commemoration of Princeton 1812-2012, March 13-15 will include speakers such as Drs. Paul K. Helseth, Fred Zaspel, C.N. Willborn, and Tony Curto. On the creation issues, Fred Zaspel will address the topic "Princeton and Evolution/Creation." The schedule is located online here.
Homosexual Uber-Rights...I Told You So
11/26/2011 - James WhiteFor years now I have been commenting on the fact that homosexual advocates are not, and will never be, satisfied with mere "tolerance." No, they are demanding uber-rights, supremacy, in-your-face capitulation to the supremacy of their worldview and the denigration of anything that makes them feel "different." That means families, with a father and a mother, and children growing up as boys and girls in a wholesome, safe environment. The attacks are becoming more and more open, more and more utterly ridiculous. But, given the moral degradation of Western culture, these attacks are not only countenanced by the social elite, but encouraged thereby. Check out this situation in Canada.
His Eternal Power and Divine Nature...
11/26/2011 - James White...have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse (ἀναπολογήτους, without a rational defense, an answer, an apologetic)." Romans 1:20)
In light of the Mississippi disaster a few weeks ago, it is good to be reminded that the abortion holocaust is purely a matter of convenience, politics, and money combined with corrupt morals. It is not in any way, shape, or form, a matter of ignorance concerning the humanity of the pre-born child. That is a completely settled matter. As in all things, scientific knowledge can be used for good or for evil. But its testimony to God's existence, wisdom, and power, can only be denied at the cost of our own humanity, our own rationality. We must beat daily upon the image of God within us with the rebellious hammers of our willful stupidity so as to deface the testimony He has placed within us. Watch this video and see and hear again the vindication of God's truth in Romans 1.
