Many modern astronomers have adopted a worldview that is in stark contrast to the Bible. Holding to a materialistic philosophy, they seek to explain the origin of the cosmos and the celestial bodies through purely natural processes. Creation astronomers, which includes many of the fathers of astronomy, such as Nicolas Copernicus and Sir Isaac Newton, look to the Word of God for special understanding. This class provides a general introduction to astronomy from the Biblical worldview ("creation astronomy"). The origin and age of the cosmos and the celestial bodies are discussed, and important evidence of fine-tuning is illustrated.

Battle for the Bible
In the 1970’s, leading evangelical thinkers fought the first “battle for the Bible” in modern times. They argued against the idea that the Bible contains historical and scientific errors, and it only speaks truth in spiritual or moral issues. This led to the 1978 International Council on Biblical Inerrancy, which produced the “Chicago Statement on Biblical Inerrancy.” The Evangelical Theological Society embraced the Chicago Statement & removed from their ranks any scholars who denied inerrancy. However, in recent years, some leading evangelical thinkers have invented new approaches to interpreting the Bible which allows these scholars to claim to hold to inerrancy (i.e., the Bible is totally without error in all that it teaches), yet deny several Gospel miracles by claiming they are just figurative speech or poetic devices and not genuine historical miracles. In this lecture, Dr. Fernandes shows that this hermeneutical approach destroys the doctrine of inerrancy.
About the Speaker:
Dr. Phil Fernandes is the president of the Institute of Biblical Defense, which he founded in 1990 to teach Christians how to defend the Christian Faith. He is also the pastor of Trinity Bible Fellowship in Silverdale, Washington, and teaches philosophy, world religions, theology, and apologetic's for CrossPoint Academy and the Imago Dei Institute (formerly Cascade Bible College).
Dr.Phil Fernandes has earned the following degrees: a Ph.D. in philosophy of religion from Greenwich University, a Master of Arts in Religion from Liberty University, and a Bachelor of Theology from Columbia Evangelical Seminary. Fernandes has debated some of America’s leading atheists (i.e., Dr. Michael Martin of Boston University, Jeff Lowder, Jim Corbett, and Dan Barker). He has lectured and debated in defense of the Christian world view at some of America’s leading universities.
