The Battle for the Truth at the Answers Mega Conference

The Answers Mega Conference has begun! Here are some excerpts and key thoughts from the speakers. First, what is the Mega Conference all about? Watch this video by Ken Ham:

Ken Ham kicked off the conference with the first talk on the subject of “The Great Delusion,” informing us about the declining state of the culture and what we can do about it. As he was concluding, Ken passionately stated, “When we get the answers, we will not be intimidated by the secularists! And we will be able to stand up to them with the truth.” The audience gave applause in agreement. That really is what the Answers in Genesis ministry is about—giving answers so that people can “give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear” (1 Peter 3:15). Read AiG’s Mission Statement for a complete list of the goals of the ministry.

Tony Perkins of Family Research Council

Watch the following short video of Tony Perkins, president of the Washington DC-based Family Research Council:

In the second talk of the night, “Advancing a Culture of Life in the U.S.,” Tony Perkins gave the following key point:

Friends, I think it is vitally important that we send a clear message that there are those of us—that are committed to the Truth—that are not going anywhere. We are not going to wave a white flag and call for a truce on the great moral issues our day, nor are we going to be silent until every child, born and unborn, is welcomed into the world and protected by our laws.

A common theme throughout the night was a battle over the truth of God’s Word, but no matter how many people attack the Bible and try to destroy it, God’s Word has remained firm through the ages. Why should we trust the ever-changing, fallible opinions of men when we have the truth of God’s Word that has stood the test of time?

Ray Comfort of Living Waters

To conclude the evening, the startling film Evolution vs. God featuring Ray Comfort of Living Waters premiered at the conference. Here’s what Ray said:

Ray Comfort introduced the premiere of the film Evolution vs. God. At one point, he stated, “If atheistic evolution is true—and we are past primates with no moral accountability—then fornication is nothing but our species following our instinct to procreate. If Darwinian evolution is true, then adultery, pornography, homosexuality, lust, lying, and blasphemy are culturally acceptable. If there’s is no God, then anything goes.” You can find out more information and purchase the film through our online store. Did you know that the evening sessions are publicly available to watch online? They can be viewed for free at answerslive.org.
