For deeper consideration:

·       Apologetic Resources: “A Young Earth ministry perspective, namely contrasting Scripture to true science now and during the ages” by Jim Pagels. (Michigan District LCMS)

·      What a Foolish Idea archived webinar by Martin Barlau. By the time they reach middle-school children are confronted with varying concepts about the origin of the universe and the development of all the life forms that have existed on earth. In a Christian school, if not elsewhere, they learn about creation. But their world is also steeped in full blown acceptance of the principles of evolution. These ideas may also be supported in some Christian schools, especially at higher levels.

·      Did God Really Say? archived webinar by Martin Barlau. Survival of the fittest is a concept deep in the bedrock of the theory of evolution. As such, it also shapes the basic worldview of those who deny the account of creation or of those who are doing life without God. As Christians, we must ask whether survival of the fittest, or other aspects of the concept of evolution, are in line with God’s Word. Did God really say, “Let there be…?” And how does the concept of survival of the fittest play out in daily life? What should we be teaching our children? Should our worldview differ?
