a young earth


Naturalism and Evolution claim that the world evolved over billions of years.  The Bible claims that God created the world in six days.  Can we believe both?  Could God have used evolution to bring about man?  What information do we have that helps us understand how old the earth is?  This is a companion series to the first two sermons in “Genesis: The Beginning of God’s People”.
