“Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.”
Creation Matters North-West (CMNW) has now celebrated its tenth anniversary, our first meeting was held at Emmanuel Church, Workington on 29 January 2005. Our aim has always been to help Christians to be confident in the Bible’s teaching on Creation (recognising the challenges of living within a secular, atheistic and materialistic society). It was appropriate therefore that Steve Layfield spoke on the “Relevance of Genesis” at that inaugural meeting.
I studied Physics at university, and found the subject of Thermodynamics to be most challenging. This raised a real conflict for me when it comes to the ‘Big Bang’ theory. How can the first and second laws support the concept of matter exploding from nothing, and then ordering itself into an intricate cosmos and be equally intricate at the sub-atomic level? I had to conclude that either Thermodynamics was wrong or Big Bang was incorrect! To allow order to emerge from ‘Big Bang’, science has had to fudge these laws. Can you really teach that both these principles are right? Creation Ministries International have recently produced a DVD titled “Evolution’s Achilles’ Heels”. This is an excellent DVD and well worth watching. Fifteen eminent scientists examine seven areas of science that allegedly support Evolution and show the failings of these paradigms. This DVD is the subject of our next meeting, and I would encourage you to come and see the DVD and to bring friends with you.
Our plans for the next few meetings are:
Friday 20th March 2015 at Grace Evangelical Church, Carlisle (7.30 pm) DVD: “Evolution’s Achilles’ Heels”
Friday 24th April 2015 at Cockermouth Christian Fellowship (CCF) (7.00 pm & 8.30 pm)
