Dr. Jason Lisle will be on CNN’s Situation Room with Wolf BlitzerTODAY between 3pm-6pm CT. He has been asked to respond to Rep. Paul Broun’s (R-Ga) comments regarding creation, young earth, and the Bible.
At a speech delivered recently to the Liberty Baptist Church Sportsman’s Banquet, Rep. Paul Broun was quoted as saying,”All that stuff I was taught about evolution and embryology and the Big Bang Theory, all that is lies straight from the pit of Hell. And it’s lies to try to keep me and all the folks who were taught that from understanding that they need a savior.”
He went on to say, “You see, there are a lot of scientific data that I’ve found out as a scientist that actually show that this is really a young Earth. I don’t believe that the Earth’s but about 9,000 years old. I believe it was created in six days as we know them. That’s what the Bible says.”
How grateful we are for Bible believing politicians and their bravery to stand up for their beliefs. Please pray for Rep. Paul Broun and Dr. Jason Lisle as they are expected to defend the truth of Scripture and it’s authority in our lives.
Dr. Jason Lisle is the Director of Research for ICR in Dallas, TX. He is the author of The Ultimate Proof of Creation, Taking Back Astronomy, and The Stargazer’s Guide to the Night Sky and more.
