Creation Series Draws Locals
More than 200 people attended a seven-night series on origins at the Moscow, Idaho, Best Western Convention Center the first week of November 2008. The series featured Stan Hudson, pastor and co-host of LifeTalk Radio's Sink the Beagle. Hudson was a University of California geology major. When Christ entered his life, he changed his major to theology, eventually earning a doctor of ministry degree. However, he never lost his love for earth sciences.
Those attending the series included students and staff from the University of Idaho and Washington State University as well as Christians from the community. The first lecture, In the Beginning, God or Hydrogen? addressed the theory of evolution via natural selection as proposed by Charles Darwin. An overview of the conflict between science and religion was part of the opening night. Attendance was encouraged by the promise of a workbook the second night and free dinosaur teeth to the first 50 attendees on the fourth night (featuring dinosours).
Jason Satterlund, Spokane Valley producer, filmed the series, and a DVD and workbook will be available. For those interested in studying more, a Genesis study at the Moscow, Idaho, Church is available.
Creation evangelism is a passion for Hudson. He believes it to be a central part of the Three Angels' Messages of Revelation 14, explaining, "any approach to sharing the good news to people in these last days that doesn't include at least a component of the reliability of Genesis' account of origins and the flood is sharing an incomplete message. A judgment hour call lacks power if it doesn't underline the fact that the earth has had a judgment hour call before...with devastating results."
