Suffering


IMG_4003This summer, Dr. Katie Galloway joins the RTB family as an adjunct scholar. As a ministry, we are blessed to have her fresh perspective on science apologetics, specifically the evidence for God in biological systems.

The hand-written note read, “I’m not sure what you are going through right now, but the Holy Spirit whispered to me to send this to you.” The CD was a compilation of worship music. (more…)

If there’s one issue that really divides old-earth and young-earth creationism, it’s animal death before the Fall.
