Fossils, Dinosaurs and Apemen

Principally referencing DNA, David Vallance presents the teleological argument  for the existence of God (the argument from purpose or design). The complexity of the genetic information system at the heart of biology is such that no natural explanation can come close to explaining it. On the contrary, DNA shouts “design” and points to an all wise Creator. David tackles commonly proposed arguments for evolution such as antibiotic resistance in bacteria and what is known as ‘homology’.

The Universe and the Big Bang

Worldviews and Suppositions

David Vallance explains that the Bible is not anti-science. Quite the reverse. A biblical worldview is essential to provide a basis for real science. After giving a history of scientific discovery, pioneered by theists such as Kepler, Newton, Boyle and Faraday, David explains the difference between the inductive and deductive methods of inquiry and criticises the broader scientific community for starting from the premise of naturalism. Quote of the day: “The only thing you can know for sure is what God tells you.”

Days, Ages and Gaps

David Vallance outlines the stark choice facing us all. Which is right – “the Bible” (Genesis), or the grand theory of “evolution” (cosmic, molecular, biological etc.)? Starting with Darwin’s “origin of species”, David helpfully distinguishes between “horizontal variation” (observable) and “vertical evolution” (a fairy tale for grown-ups). He finishes by explaining why he rejects 5 compromise positions: the gap theory, the day-age theory, progressive ages, the literary framework hypothesis, and theistic evolution

The Value of Apologetics

David Vallance outlines what the Bible means when it uses the Greek word “apologia” (answer, defence – 1 Pet 3:15). A consistent Christian life, combined with a gracious personal testimony to God’s truth and grace is the best apologetic of all!

You Must Be Born Again!

Mervyn Hall preaches on a vital Bible text: “You must be born again” (John 3:7). “You” – it’s personal; “must” – it’s essential; “be” – it’s real; “born again” – it’s spiritual. What does it mean to be born again? Why must I be born again? Listen to this vital message and learn your need of a divine regenerative work of God in your life if you ever hope to be in heaven. Do you say you are born again? Learn too that you cannot claim to have an encounter with God in new birth and remain unchanged (Message preached 22nd July 2018)

Episode 17 – Testimony (Clive Barber)

Baptised as an 8 day old baby and given communion from 6 months old, Clive Barber spent the first 17 years of his life in a legalistic religious sect that held meetings every day of the year. However, all that time, Clive never discovered the truth that he was a lost sinner in need of God’s salvation. Excommunicated and told to leave his home at the age 17 for infringing the sect’s rules, Clive turned against Christ, the Bible and Christians. He became involved in drugs, crime and the vandalism of churches – but by the grace of God, while in Australia, came under the influence of a saved businessman who gave him a job, a Bible and introduced him to the gospel of Christ. Over a period of months, God brought Clive under deep conviction of sin, until finally he trusted in the Lord Jesus for personal salvation and the forgiveness of sin, after hearing the gospel preached by the evangelist Norman Mellish (Testimony given 6th July 2018)
