Does God exist? How can anyone believe in religion when science has neither a need nor a place for God? Is evolution happening today? If God is a God of love, why do we suffer and die?
Creation Ministries International is coming to First Baptist Church, Philadelphia, with answers to these important questions. Come and hear Dr. Robert Carter expose the bankruptcy of the evolutionary myth. You'll be amazed to see how weak the scientific evidence for evolution is.
This is an issue that affects everyone. Evolution teaches us there is no need for God, there is no spiritual realm, and there is no afterlife. According to the theory, spirituality is just an evolutionary trick of the mind!
The Bible gives a very different picture about the nature of these things. At this presentation, you will learn how the scientific evidence, when properly understood, confirms the details of the biblical account. At the same time, we will answer many of the Big Questions.
Dr. Robert Carter will speak on Sunday, Aug. 18, at First Baptist Church, 414 Pecan Avenue, Philadelphia. For more information, call 601-656-1507.
