I have always enjoyed learning from Ken Ham and the team at Answers in Genesis. While in Bible College in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, Ken was one of my professors and I enjoyed his teachings immensely. (BTW: This fall I have been asked to join Ken Ham, Jason Lisle, and others as one of the teachers at the college. I look forward to going back to invest in the students’ lives there at Jackson Hole Bible College later this year. If you don’t have college plans for this fall, contact JHBC to see about enrollment.)
Ken spoke with the audience about the state of the nation regarding what has happened in the church as Sunday school teachers continue to tell “Bible stories” and teachers in school teach “real truth.” The ultimate question is: “Are we preparing our children to answer the questions they will face outside of the church?” It seems that the questions have not changed. We are all still wondering about the same things as we grow up. Can the Bible be trusted? Where did Cain get his wife? How did Noah fit all the animals on the ark? Where did all the water come from to flood the world? Do I just have a blind faith while others have real truth? How do you talk with an unbeliever?
The Bible tells us in 2 Timothy 2:15: “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”
Have you studied? Are you prepared to give a defense for your faith? If not, start learning and begin defending! Kind of hard to defend when you don’t even share, isn’t it? If you want some help on where to start learning to defend your faith, http://www.creationtoday.org is a great place to learn!
