Q: What is the future of Answers in Genesis?
Ken Ham answers: As I consider the growing compromise in churches and notice their general lack of authoritative biblical teaching, I am thankful to think of how God has blessed AiG, the Creation Museum, and now the Ark Encounter project. It really hit home with me when I turned 60 late last year. I realized that I have been in this creation-apologetics ministry for more years than I will probably be living in the future! A sobering thought, isn’t it?
And then I begin to wonder: where will AiG be in the future? Can anything be done to safeguard this ministry from compromising God’s Word in any way, or from starting to lose its boldness in standing on the authority of the Word of God?
Over the years, I have observed many Christian organizations that were once zealous for the Lord become, over time, ineffective (and even irrelevant). I’ve also seen pastors, as their churches have grown, eventually lose their zeal and become more business-like in running their church. Many seem to have forgotten their history.
“Oh Lord,” I cried out to God recently, “how can I, in the position you have placed me, do my best to guide AiG and our staff so we don’t end up like so many others?”
Of course, ultimately the ministry is all in God’s hand. But we still have a human responsibility to do what we can to watch over a ministry the Lord has entrusted to our daily care.

Infanticide—the slippery slope: A pro-life person may think the latest wisdom from the Journal of Medical Ethics is a spoof demonstrating the logical absurdity of justifying abortion. But this reasoning is deadly serious. In “After-birth abortion: why should the baby live?” two professional ethicists explain there is no logical difference between aborting a pre-born baby and murdering a newborn. Read more.
Dawkins “not sure”: During a public “dialogue” at Oxford, “the world’s most famous atheist,” Richard Dawkins, told the Archbishop of Canterbury he couldn’t be sure God didn’t exist. Asked “Why don’t you call yourself an agnostic?” Dawkins said he does but is “6.9 out of seven” sure, adding “I think the probability of a supernatural creator existing is very very low.” Read more.
