Defending the Authority of Scripture

Genesis 1:1-31; Exodus 20:11 July 13, 2010 B100713

This preprint of an interview with John MacArthur is used by permission of Creation Ministries International ( and is from the October 2010 issue of CMI’s Creation magazine. As you’ll see, CMI’s Lael Weinberger asked John some pointed questions that expose the nature and heart of the evolution controversy within evangelicalism. John provides critical insight into the failure of evangelical leadership to confront evolutionism directly; he identifies ground-zero in the debate; and he explains how the church can find its way back to certainty and confidence in God’s Word.

Here’s the link to the PDF. After you read it, go to the comment thread and tell us what you think about this question:

Why do you think evangelicals (OECs, TEs, and YECs alike) fail to center the debate on the text of Scripture and its interpretation?
