Battle for the BibleIn the 1970’s, leading evangelical thinkers fought the first “battle for the Bible” in modern times. They argued against the idea that the Bible contains historical and scientific errors, and it only speaks truth in spiritual or moral issues. This led to the 1978 International Council on Biblical Inerrancy, which produced the “Chicago Statement on Biblical Inerrancy.” The Evangelical Theological Society embraced the Chicago Statement & removed from their ranks any scholars who denied inerrancy. However, in recent years, some leading evangelical thinkers have invented new approaches to interpreting the Bible which allows these scholars to claim to hold to inerrancy (i.e., the Bible is totally without error in all that it teaches), yet deny several Gospel miracles by claiming they are just figurative speech or poetic devices and not genuine historical miracles. In this lecture, Dr. Fernandes shows that this hermeneutical approach destroys the doctrine of inerrancy.

About the Speaker:

Dr. Phil FernandesDr. Phil Fernandes is the president of the Institute of Biblical Defense, which he founded in 1990 to teach Christians how to defend the Christian Faith. He is also the pastor of Trinity Bible Fellowship in Silverdale, Washington, and teaches philosophy, world religions, theology, and apologetic's for CrossPoint Academy and the Imago Dei Institute (formerly Cascade Bible College).

Dr.Phil Fernandes has earned the following degrees: a Ph.D. in philosophy of religion from Greenwich University, a Master of Arts in Religion from Liberty University, and a Bachelor of Theology from Columbia Evangelical Seminary. Fernandes has debated some of America’s leading atheists (i.e., Dr. Michael Martin of Boston University, Jeff Lowder, Jim Corbett, and Dan Barker). He has lectured and debated in defense of the Christian world view at some of America’s leading universities.

The Origin of LifeThe incredible complexity of all life is highlighted by examining the components of a "simple" cell. The computer-controlled protein (including enzymes) manufacturing process illustrates that DNA, RNA, and over 150 proteins must be present and fully functional for life to exist. The natural scenarios (proteins first, DNA/proteins first, and RNA first) are analyzed and shown to be totally inadequate, even from the natural sciences. The information systems of life illustrate with certainty that life had an intelligent source. The Biblical basis for life's origin demonstrates agreement with known science. We are fearfully and wonderfully made!

About the Speaker:

Dr. Don JohnsonDon Johnson earned Ph.D.s in both Computer and Information Sciences and in Chemistry. He was a senior research scientist and consultant for over 14 years, and taught 20 years in universities in the US and Europe. Since retiring as an APU (Christian university) professor, he has done consulting, speaking, and writing (4 books, including best-selling “Programming of Life,” and several peer-reviewed papers). He has made Christian and secular presentations across the US and on most continents. His Christian Website has links to the “Programming of Life” video (over 236,000 on-line views), several video presentations and printable flyers, as well as links to his two secular science Websites. For over 20 years he believed, taught, and defended the evolutionary scenarios, until science convinced him of the bankruptcy of those beliefs.
