Genesis - An Interview with Dr. Terry Mortenson (Answers In Genesis)

Understanding what the book of Genesis says about the origin of all things is foundational to understanding the Bible. If chapters 1 and 2 of Genesis are not the truth about the beginning of all things, how can we believe the rest of the scriptures? Especially when the New Testament claims that our creator is also our redeemer. Because if God is not our creator, how can he be our redeemer?

In an "evolving world," defending the Christian worldview is not easy, and many Christians lack the knowledge and confidence to mount a vigorous defense of the Bible. Unfamiliarity with God's Word and what it says about how everything came to be is not a justification for a retreat from the battlefield of ideas.

In this episode, our guest Dr. Terry Mortenson (from Answers in Genesis), will join us for an insightful discussion on how scriptures answer the many questions that a surprising number of Christians have about creation. Worldly ideas that contradict God's Word do not need to be a source of fear and confusion. The scriptures have the answers you need to have understanding and confidence in the only book that the creator of the universe authored just for us - The Bible.

I have a profound devotion and admiration for Biblical truth. In my free time, I like road cycling and restoring classic cars. My wife and I are thankful to be able to travel in our motorhome and explore new places, all while spreading the message of scripture and helping others understand the full and accurate truth concerning the Lord Jesus Christ. In my walk with God, I've come to realize that being Relentlessly Biblical™ is not just a set of rules but a way of life and mindset that should guide our daily decisions without compromise. I encourage you all to adopt this same approach.

Hey my name is Christian! I am a born-again believer of Jesus Christ who happens to own a business alongside my wife, capturing photo & video for weddings. We were recently blessed with a beautiful daughter in February of 2022 and can't get enough of our little baby girl, Luna. I am a musician who loves writing and playing music. Two other things I enjoy most are reading and studying the Word of God (the Bible) and leading other fellow believers in worship at our church. There is nothing like a good laugh, cup of coffee in the mornings and amazing food like; Thai, Indian, Spanish and dry cereal as a snack. One future goal I'd love to accomplish is to film an original short-film.
