Reflection Questions
  • What differences are there between the creationist view of human origin which takes the data of geological and biological antiquity seriously, and the view taken by the theistic evolutionist?

  • How does your study so far support the stance that a thoroughly Christian testimony may accompany a position of the creation of humankind which is well integrated with the scientific data?

  • By now, how do you view an ancient creation in relation to the essential message of the Bible? Upon what is your conclusion based?
