Dr. Grady S. McMurtry, an international creation emissary, Biblical Scientific Creationist, and Christian apologist, delivers his message through Creation Worldview Ministries, Inc., an educational missionary organization. With God and Grady S. McMurtry as its driving forces, Creation Worldview Ministries acts as a resource center for distribution of missionary discipleship and evangelism, particularly Biblical Scientific Creationism. The organization’s website, http://www.creationworldview.org, also seeks to promote, propagate, and preserve a Christian Biblical Worldview.

Christian Worldview Ministries offers a variety of programs for home schools, universities, vacation Bible schools, conferences, and seminars. The organization delivers its point of view on radio and televisions shows as well. In addition to focusing on “the truths of biblical foundations,” seminar and sermon offerings include secular presentations that focus on critical thinking and intellectual honesty in approaching the topic of origins. The ministry also recommends other organizations as a source for speakers, including the Creation Studies Institute; the Institute for Creation Research; and Creation Moments, Inc.

Sermon/seminar presentations include a number of science-based discussions, such as “It’s a Young World After All,” scientific evidence for a young earth/universe; and “Carbon 14 – Proof for a Young Earth,” an exploration of why the Carbon 14 dating method does not work. Other scientific subjects range from genetics and the empirical evidence for longevity to chemical evolution and the fallacy of global warming. “Light from Distant Galaxies” explains how humans see light from distant sources while only being 6,000 years old.

Other Christian Worldview Ministries talks delve into marriage; communion with God; the worth of people; and the history of the world, including Noah’s Ark, the Tower of Babel, and the eruption of Mt. St. Helens in the Pacific Northwest. With these and other programs, Christian Worldview Ministries will continue to lift Jesus Christ up so that “He might draw all people unto Himself.” For more information, articles, sample programs, a schedule of events, and more, visit the Christian Worldview Ministries website.

Early Christian Apologists: The Apostle Paul

As a Christian apologist, Dr. Grady S. McMurtry supports a rational view of Christianity. In doing so, Dr. McMurtry follows in the footsteps of Christian apologists throughout history, including C. S. Lewis and Saint Augustine. Paul the Apostle is often considered the first Christian apologist.

Born at around the same time as Christ and originally given the name Saul, Paul was raised in Orthodox Jewish tradition, including study of The Old Testament Law. With his staunch Jewish beliefs and strong legal background, Paul spent his early adulthood persecuting and arresting Christians. The Book of the Acts of the Apostles, however, describes Paul’s conversion to Christianity.

While traveling along the road to Damascus, Paul witnessed a vision of the resurrected Christ. The vision left Paul blind, and changed the direction of his life. After completing his journey to Damascus, Paul met with Ananias of Damascus, who baptized him and prayed that Paul would be cured of his blindness.

Paul began preaching the Word of God, telling his followers that the way to salvation was through Jesus, and not man’s laws. He alienated the Jewish community with some of his beliefs, including the abandonment of Jewish dietary restrictions and the traditional practice of circumcision. He was persecuted, arrested as a heretic, and imprisoned. While he was in prison, Paul wrote 13 epistles that are now a significant portion of the New Testament: Romans, Galatians, Ephesians, Colossians, Philippians, Philemon, Titus, I and II Corinthians, I and II Thessalonians, and I and II Timothy.

Formally founded in 1963, the Creation Research Society (CRS) has members who study and write various publications about Biblical Scientific Creationism, the scientific and religious belief that life, earth and the universe were created 6,000 years ago. CRS utilizes creation science, using scientific methods and practices, to prove that creationism is a true concept.

Originally founded by three individuals, CRS welcomed 10 members into the ranks by the end of the first year of operation. Shortly after CRS’ founding, the organization’s members began searching for a modern creationist biology textbook for use in schools. In 1970, CRS’ search ended with Biology: A Search for Order, which was published by Christian publisher Zondervan. The book’s initial printing of 10,000 copies quickly sold out, prompting a new run of books.

In all CRS endeavors, the organization’s members work to promote the group’s core beliefs: that the Bible is the Word of God and is historically and scientifically accurate; that all living things were made by God during the week of creation described in the Book of Genesis; that the worldwide flood chronicled in Genesis was a factual occurrence; and that all CRS members, male and female, accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.

Since 1964, CRS has published the Creation Research Society Quarterly, a periodical covering various articles related to the group’s beliefs and practices. For more information on CRS, visit creationresearch.org.
