Beginning on March 2, 2015 at Crossroads COGOP in White Bluff TN starting at 6:00 pm and ending at 9:00 pm, TN COGOP will be offering a six week class discussing and comparing the beliefs and facts concerning the creation account of God and the naturalistic man-made view of evolution. In this study, the class will explore the creation and flood accounts of the Bible as described in the KJV and compare that account to the current curriculum taught in our public school system.
This class will delve into various topics such as the scope and duration of the Noah’s flood. In this study we will explore how Noah’s Flood has affected the current geologic condition of the earth and if evolution is a viable alternative to the study of geology and biology. This class will include a brief overview of the Gilgamesh Epic and whether or not this Epic is more viable than the biblical flood account as described in Genesis. As this class progresses, we will review the various ancestors of mankind; the various testimonies’ of both creationist and evolutionist as they have come to us through the last several centuries; the geologic time scale; the various age dating methods; the two belief systems in the world and many other ideas and opinions of man as compared against the Word of God.
There are many of you who may have grappled with the ideas of science and how those ideas measure up to the Bible the Word of God. Hopefully this course will give you a foundation and a basis from which you can discuss intelligently the questions you may not have had the answers to in the past as described in this course. Please join us in this study of God’s word as compare to the man’s naturalistic view of the world. We challenge you to come to see that the Lord is good. Come and allow this class to give you a deeper walk with the Lord as it relates to His word.
