The Bible is the foundation for logic.

Logical reasoning itself only makes sense in a Biblical worldview. To make a logical argument about anything, we have to use laws of logic. But if the universe is just matter in motion (as many evolutionists believe), laws of logic wouldn’t exist since laws of logic are not made of matter.

Laws of logic are “rules” that help us distinguish correct from incorrect forms of reasoning. But in an evolutionary universe, why should there be a standard for reasoning, who is to say what that standard is? How could we ever really know for certain the laws of logic?

In the Biblical creation worldview, however, laws of logic make sense. They reflect the thinking of God who upholds the entire universe by His power. God is our standard for correct thinking because all truth is in Him. We can know about laws of logic because God has made us in His image and has revealed some of His thoughts to us in His Word. We can expect laws of logic to be universally true and never change because they stem from the nature of God.

So, when evolutionists such as Charles Darwin attempt to use science and logic, they reveal the fact that in their heart of hearts they know the God of creation.

The fact that evolutionists believe in science, rationality, and morality is inconsistent with their professed belief in evolution. This shows that in their hearts, they really know the God whose Word they are attacking, even though they verbally deny this. They “suppress” the truth, as Scripture teaches (Romans 1:18-25).

From Darwin to Dawkins, all evolutionists have relied upon their suppressed knowledge of the God of creation—as evidenced by their belief in science, logic, and morality. As a result of their failure to honor God or thank Him, their thinking is reduced to futile speculations (Romans 1:21).

The notions of particles-to-people evolution is just one example of mankind’s futile speculations. But people cannot consistently function rationally with such a futile way of thinking. In their effort to construct arguments against Biblical creation, evolutionists must unwittingly rely on the concepts that can come only from Biblical creation.1

“For although they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened.”

Romans 1:21

Our Mission

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

“But ask the beasts, and they will teach you; the birds of the heavens, and they will tell you; or the bushes of the earth, and they will teach you; and the fish of the sea will declare to you.

Who among all these does not know that the hand of the LORD has done this?

In his hand is the life of every living thing and the breath of all mankind.”
(Job 7-10)
