The Institute for Creation Research will hold its 40th anniversary celebration banquet in Dallas, Texas, on October 7, 2010, featuring Dr. R. Albert Mohler, Jr., as special guest speaker. Dr. Mohler serves as president of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary—the flagship school of the Southern Baptist Convention and one of the largest seminaries in the world.
A staunch defender of the Bible’s accuracy and authority, and of the Genesis record, Mohler commented recently that the issue of Charles Darwin, evolution, and creation is really a discussion about the revealed Word of God:
We can eliminate the conflict between evolution and Christianity if we redefine God to be something far less than the Creator he reveals himself to be in Genesis. If we dispense with Genesis as revealed truth, we have no problem declaring a truce between evolution and Christian belief….
The conflict between Genesis and evolution is not merely over the “how” as opposed to the “why” of creation. Evolution presents a direct challenge to the entire story-line of the Bible.1
Dr. Mohler hosts The Albert Mohler Program, a daily live nationwide radio program on the Salem Radio Network. He also writes a popular blog and a regular commentary on moral, cultural, and theological issues. Both can be accessed through Dr. Mohler’s website, www.AlbertMohler.com.
Widely sought as a columnist and commentator, Dr. Mohler has been quoted in the nation’s leading newspapers, including The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, USA Today, The Washington Post, The Atlanta Journal/Constitution, and The Dallas Morning News. He has also appeared on such national news programs as CNN’s Larry King Live, NBC’s Today Show and Dateline NBC, ABC’s Good Morning America, The NewsHour with Jim Lehrer on PBS, MSNBC’s Scarborough Country, and Fox’s The O’Reilly Factor.
His writings have been published throughout the United States and Europe. He is the author of several books, including Culture Shift: Engaging Current Issues with Timeless Truth (Multnomah), Desire & Deceit: The Real Cost of the New Sexual Tolerance (Multnomah), Atheism Remix: A Christian Confronts the New Atheists (Crossway), He Is Not Silent: Preaching in a Postmodern World (Moody), The Disappearance of God: Dangerous Beliefs in the New Spiritual Openness (Multnomah), and, most recently, Words from the Fire: Hearing the Voice of God in the 10 Commandments (Moody).
In addition to Dr. Mohler, ICR’s 40th anniversary banquet will feature a musical concert, sumptuous food and fellowship, a multimedia presentation highlighting both the legacy and future of ICR’s work in apologetics and creation science, and much more.
Save the date, October 7, 2010, and make plans to attend! More details to follow in the months ahead.
