Creation apologetics will save your kids.

“Only 10% of Christian twentysomethings have resilient faith1

We hardly need statistics to confirm or suspicions when it comes to our youth abandoning the church and the Christian faith.

It’s a shocking statistic. It actually gets a little more shocking.

But it isn’t surprising.

Ken Ham, CEO and founder of Answers in Genesis-US teamed up with Britt Beemer, Chairman and Founder at America’s Research Group to dissect the problem in their 2009 research project published in Already Gone. You can read the book for free online here

“Statistics reveal a huge disconnect taking place between our children and their church experience. Nationwide polls and denominational reports are showing that the next generation is calling it quits on the traditional church. And it’s not just happening on the nominal fringe; it’s happening at the core of the faith. In the first scientific study of its kind, the “Beemer Report” reveals startling facts discovered through 20,000 phone calls and detailed surveys of a thousand 20–29-year-olds who used to attend evangelical churches on a regular basis, but have since left it behind.” 2

 

The results are shocking:

When it comes to the overall landscape of the effectiveness of current Sunday-School efforts their research found the following miseries. Make sure you’re sitting down.

  • Those who faithfully attend Sunday School are more likely to leave the church than those who do not.
  • Those who regularly attend Sunday School are more likely to believe that the Bible is less true.
  • Those who regularly attend Sunday School are actually more likely to defend that abortion and gay marriage should be legal.
  • Those who regularly attend Sunday School are actually more likely to defend premarital sex.

 

There is hope! Creation apologetics changes everything!

In this short but powerful documentary, Creation Ministries International (CMI) conducts interviews with students on university campuses to explain, in their own words, whether they were taught the evidence for creation, and how this impacted them.

A clear pattern emerges—those who were equipped to defend biblical creation remained faithful while those who did not—abandoned the church.

Biblical presuppositional creation apologetics is vital when teaching a twenty-first-century disciple Strongly encourage parents, pastors, and youth leaders to watch the 26-minute video above by CMI.

Our Mission

We exist to glorify and honor God by equipping Christians to diligently “go and make disciples” and contend for the faith, in a morally and spiritually bankrupt culture — with gentleness and respect.

Brian Dobler

Brian has a contagious enthusiasm when it comes to sharing the creation-gospel message. An evangelist at heart, he desires to see Christians defend their faith and proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ more effectively (1 Peter 3:15).

The Dobler family founded Take a Closer Look at the Evidence (now Tyrannus Hall) in 2018 and travel as full-time RVers—allowing them the ability to spend more time and make a more meaningful investment in local communities and churches.

Tyrannus Hall is a discipling/creation apologetics (i.e., bible-defending) ministry. Our primary focus is providing answers to questions surrounding the book of Genesis, as it is the most attacked book of the Bible.

We also desire to train others to develop a Biblical worldview and live for the glory of God. Not only do we teach Biblical creation, but we expose the bankrupt philosophy of molecules-to-man evolution and its “millions-of-years” of earth history that has led so many people to doubt the Christian faith (2 Corinthians 10:5).
