One of the appendices of
is the document “ Coming to Grips with Genesis Affirmations and Denials Essential to a Consistent Christian (Biblical) Worldview,” which is meant to be a supplement to the affirmations and denials in the statements on biblical inerrancy and biblical hermeneutics by the International Council on Biblical Inerrancy published in the early 1980s. As helpful as those documents were for the church’s understanding of Scripture, the authors of Coming to Grips with Genesis believe that the statements related to creation, evolution, and the age of the earth were inadequate and opened the door to false ideas in the church. We invite others who are theologically trained and agree with us to add their names to the list of signatories and to do all they can to encourage Christians in their sphere of influence to embrace, teach, and defend these additional affirmations and denials.
To be on the list of signatories of the “Affirmations and Denials Essential
to a Consistent Christian (Biblical) Worldview,” the signer should have
at least a Master’s degree in theology, religion or missions. In some cases,
we will accept those without one of these advance theological degrees but
who are recognized Christian leaders. The qualified signer needs to send the
following items to Answers in Genesis, Attn: Walt Stumper, PO Box 510, Hebron,
Signed copy of the “
Affirmations and Denials” document. Resume/CV including address and phone number of current place of employment.
