Spiritual Emphasis Week is a great time every semester when we try to give SCA students some time to focus on spiritual growth. This year we were blessed to have Dr. Kurt Wise come and present to our students a case for Biblical, young-age creationism. Dr. Wise is a biology professor at Truett McConnell College in Cleveland, Georgia. He is also the director of the Center for Origins Research at Truett. Dr. Wise is considered one of America’s leading voices in the discussion supporting young-age creationism.
In chapel sessions each day, he brought a tremendous wealth of scientific knowledge to our students to help them in their understanding of this issue. More importantly, Dr. Wise dug into God’s Word with our students to emphasize to them how critical it is for them to know and have faith in the Bible as the foundation for all of their beliefs on this topic and any other. Dr. Wise also spent time in some of our Bible classes each day fielding a variety of questions. He also spoke at Sherwood Baptist Church each evening presenting some scientific creationist theories that seem to be superior to evolutionary theories. It was a great week to dig into God’s Word and discover some of His truths as they pertain to this critical topic of Biblical, young-age creationism.
