Sunday, March 26th
Time Session Title Description
10:00 a.m. Sunday School Dinosaur Theology: 101 Many do not know basic facts about dinosaurs. ICR Q&A Specialist, Bruce Wood, will share fascinating theological and scientific details about when dinos were made, how long they lived, their place in Noah’s ark—LITERALLY, how they died—but not that long ago. HINT: pictures will reveal soft tissue and other organic examples found IN dino bones, as well as humans seeing dinos through the 15th century!
11:00 a.m. Worship Service Family History Matters Does your family history matter? To really appreciate it, you need biblical creation thinking. Dr. Johnson gives scriptural insights for why family history matters and also offers practical tips on collecting and converting family history information such as verbal or photographic content into useful “packaging” products and experiences that can be shared with family members and friends.
2:00 p.m. Session 1 What Good is Genesis Based Apologetics? Some think apologetics is limited to answering inquirers who ask about the Christian faith. Others think apologetics is a fancy word for defending the faith. But the Scriptures provide four very different purposes for how we learn and use creation evidences (and what the New Testament calls “many infallible proofs”) to affirm and promote our biblical faith. This presentation includes “4 C’s” of Genesis apologetics: corroborating facts presented in Scriptures; contradicting the false teachings (especially evolutionary myths) that pervade our world; clarifying confusing topics to those who are puzzled, confused, or just curious; and celebrating how creation displays the glorious creatorship of our Lord Jesus Christ. Illustrations include polar bears, fish, humans who lived with dinosaurs like Stegosaurus, answering fools (Proverbs 26:4-5), carbon-14, soft tissue in Tyrannosaurus and Triceratops bones, bait-and-switch and other faith-bashing scoffer tactics, and more.
3:00 p.m. Session 2 Does the Bible Teach a Young Earth? It’s not just the natural science data that point to a young earth—the Bible does, too. Dr. Johnson presents a fast-moving, bird’s-eye view of Bible history to show the time frame for Earth’s existence. Based upon Scriptures that measure specific time frames in years, our world must be between 6,000 and 7,000 years old. Some question this young age for the earth, claiming we cannot determine whether biblical genealogies are “open” or “closed.” Dr. Johnson shows that the open-or-closed question is just a red herring used to inflate Earths’ chronology.
4:00 p.m. Session 3 Ancient History Corroborates Genesis History The history presented in Genesis is corroborated by ancient Chinese pictographs, archaeological discoveries, and Flood stories from all over the world. The pictographic language preserves a memory of God, creation, Adam and Eve, mankind’s sin in the Garden of Eden, the serpent’s role in tempting the first couple, Adam and Eve’s eviction from Eden, Cain’s murder of Abel, blood sacrifices associated with gaining righteous standing with God, the Genesis Flood, and the Tower of Babel. Did you know that the Moabite Stone corroborates a prophecy in Genesis? This kind of information is more than just interesting—it’s important for personal apologetics and personal evangelism.
