Jim Allen visited us in 1982 and one evening gave us a powerful presentation on the topic of creation vs evolution. He described the fairy tale of accidental cosmic, chemical and biological evolution, and contrasted it with the truth of divine creation as outlined in the inspired record of Genesis. In a similar recording given at Ballymena 31st Oct 1981, Mr Allen sets out the truth of God’s word in relation to the beginning of the universe, life and human beings. Mr Allen takes a stand against the “gap theory” and the “day age theory” and any attempt to compromise with the evolutionary theories of men by imbibing some form of “theistic evolution”. Readings: Col 1:15-17, Heb 11:3, Gen 1:1-5, 1:31-2:4.
