We are all familiar with the iconic ape-to-man image, which shows a smooth evolutionary progression from stooped ape to upright man. But what is the scientific evidence for the various transitional species in this evolutionary ‘march of progress’?
In this short video, you will find out. Contents: Introduction 00:34 Homo neanderthalensis (‘Neanderthal Man’) 01:01 Homo erectus 01:21 Australopithecus afarensis (e.g. ‘Lucy’) 02:02 Homo habilis 02:56 Summary.
In the last few years, apologist William Lane Craig has attacked biblical (‘young earth’) creation. However, he is not enamoured with many of the other compromise views. In 2021, he published a book, In Quest of the Historical Adam. He concluded that Adam and Eve were a real original couple who gave rise to all humans, and who committed the first acts of sin. But they were a pair of Homo heidelbergensis who lived perhaps 750,000 years ago. Dr. Jonathan Sarfati and Keaton Halley of Creation Ministries International offer their analysis of Craig’s book.
They do an excellent job of critiquing Craig’s book. God’s Bible is inerrant. It clearly provides evidence for a young earth and this video will help you support that view.

The book of Genesis is foundational to the entire Bible. Jesus and all of the New Testament writers considered the Old Testament as true history and foundational to all that they wrote. The foundational doctrines are all established in Genesis, origin of man, nature of man (made in the image of God), sin, death, marriage, God’s judgement of mankind with the worldwide flood of Noah’s day, origin of God’s nation Israel and its purpose. Jesus and the N.T writers all quoted from Genesis.
Did you know that having clarity about the opening chapters of Genesis (i.e. clarity about origins) brings clarity to the Gospel itself? It’s true! Thus, one of the enemy’s tactics is to spread a fog of compromise over the Bible’s account of origins. Learn how we can detect wolves in sheep’s clothing—who are distorting God’s Word—and why compromising ideas such as theistic evolution, the gap theory, day-age theory, the framework hypothesis, and progressive creation, obscure the plain gospel message.
Dr Mark Harwood of Creation Ministries does a great job of bringing clarity to the Gospel by addressing these compromising views of Genesis. As I have explained many times on this website, fulfilled prophecy proves the Bible is the inerrant word of God. Moreover, CMI and many PhD scientists such as Dr Mark Harwood on http://www.creation.comshow clearly that the physical evidence of the world, particularly for a worldwide flood, supports a young earth history of this world. His presentation runs for about 45 minutes. The balance is Q & A. and explanation of the resources that are available from CMI.
Jesus is the only way to heaven, hell is a real destination for those that don’t trust in Him,. How many people do you interact with every month that are on the road to eternal separation from God in Hell?
The existence of Hell is a painful, uncomfortable, but honest truth. So, here’s the million dollar question: what are we doing about it? What are we willing to do about it?
Who in your family and what friends will not join you in the first resurrection? It takes place when Jesus returns to rapture, first those dead in Christ, and then those Saints still living. At this time, we receive bodies capable of living eternally.
Remember unbelievers souls remain in Hades for a thousand years before they are raised for judgement at the White Throne Judgement. Following which they are cast into the Lake of Fire which is the second death.
Death and Hades delivered up the dead that were in them. And they were judged each one according to his works.” Revelation 20:13
“Then Death and Hadeswere cast into the lake of fire. This is thesecond death. And anyone not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire.Revelation 20:14
“Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” John 14:6
Jesus is the only way to God, Jesus is God, if you believe in Jesus you shall not perish. But if you don’t place your trust in Jesus, then you will perish. Jesus talks about this eternal perishing as second death in the Lake of Fire.
“For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 6:23.
“The truly righteous man attains life, but He who pursues evil goes to his death.” Proverbs 11:19
“Then, when desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, brings forth death.” James 1:14
Jesus said, “ “And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. But rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.” Matthew 10:28
That’s why the resurrection of Jesus is so central. He performed miracle after miracle, proving he was divine, including the ultimate miracle, when he rose from the dead, validating every exclusive claim he made about himself. So, when other religions honour Jesus as a prophet or a good teacher, but not the Son of God, they are not placing their trust in Jesus for forgiveness and salvation, and Jesus himself said he’s the only way to heaven.
Sadly, because the Bible is no longer believed to be the inerrant word of God, largely due to the acceptance of evolution by Bible Colleges and some denominations such as the Catholics and Anglicans, the creation story in Genesis is no longer believed as true history. Once the foundational book of the Bible was toppled other truths such as Jesus is the only way to God went as well, certainly with the Catholics.
Can I suggest you connect with http://www.creation.com to get equipped to witness to your family and friends, to defend your faith, and deliver the gospel message in a compelling way to those that have swallowed the lie of evolution and billions of years and therefore jettisoned God’s Word.
