What About Fossils?
Instructor: Carl Kerby
In this course we will address what the fossil record actually “says!” We will read a LOT of secular articles and critically evaluate what they teach.
In my 20 plus years of ministry I’ve noticed that one of the most used tools to cause doubt in the Word of God is the fossil record. It’s not uncommon to hear, “The fossils prove . . .” , then take your pick any of the following statements:
- the earth is millions of years old!
- that evolution is true!
- you can’t trust the Bible!
Well, what’s the truth? In this course we will address what the fossil record actually “says!” We will read a LOT of secular articles and critically evaluate what they teach. By teaching “How” to think on these materials and not just “What” to think we will be preparing the student to be able to give an answer for the hope that lies within them from a Biblical perspective. Come ready dig (pun intended), and to critically think about the evidence that we see in the world around us. Let’s use it to bring glory to God!
