Elephants in the Room
Beginning September 12th at 9:15am in the Commons Area
Led by Pastor Paustian
When we say "there are elephants in the room," we mean that people are ignoring important issues. Theistic evolution relies on ignoring important issues. Theistic evolution relies on ignoring key biblical teachings in order to appear reasonable. Using God's Word alone, Pastor Robert Koester breaks down evolutionary arguments and shows believers how to discern biblical teachings about creation from common doctrinal errors. Participants will gain a better ability to discuss these problems with others and avoid confusion about science's relationship with God's Word. Led by Pastor Paustian Sundays starting September 12th.
