Seminary by Chris Ashcraft, recorded at the Seattle Creation Conference, August 2007.
In this presentation, Chris Ashcraft provides illustrations of beauty and wonder within the creation that offer a testimony to the glory of God, but which hasn't been seen until modern times. With evolutionary indoctrination reaching epidemic proportions, these previously unseen treasures provide valuable tools for creation evangelism.
In 1 Peter 3:15 we are instructed to "Always be prepared to give an answer," and yet most Christian are unable to defend their faith through logic, reason, and empirical evidence. Using recent surveys and events to demonstrate the effects of evolutionism on society, this message will inspire those who attend toward scholarly pursuits in creation apologetics.
