‘Christianity for Skeptics’
Does God exist? How can anyone believe in religion when science has neither a need nor a place for God? Is evolution happening today? If God is a God of love, why do we suffer and die?
Creation Ministries International is coming to the Indiana area soon with answers to these important questions. Come and hear Dr. Jonathan Sarfati expose the bankruptcy of the evolutionary myth. You’ll be amazed to see how weak the scientific evidence for evolution is.
See the presentation of “Christianity for Skeptics” at 6:30 p.m. Monday, June 9, in the Toretti Auditorium in the Kovalchick Convention and Athletic Complex at Indiana University of Pennsylvania. The program will include a question-and-answer session.
