and relationship to God


TRUTH is more powerful than facts.
Does it matter which view of the Bible we hold?

The fundamental beliefs are the same: GOD is the Creator of earth and the universe.

GOD cares about humanity and chooses to be in relationship with us.

Human sin separates us from God.

Christ’s sacrifice atones for our sins and reunites us with GOD.
Yes, it does matter whether we read the Bible as a factual document or a faith document, because:

1) The separation of church and state protects our right to believe and practice religion as we choose.

2) It is not the school’s job to teach children about God; it’s the church and family’s job to teach faith to our children.

3) Intelligent design imposes non-empirical methods on an empirical discipline: science.

4) The theory of evolution and the creation of the world by GOD are not mutually exclusive options.

5) God doesn’t need to be protected from science, philosophy, theology or any other intellectual searching.
