In the Beginning: God, Adam, and You
Over the past few years, numerous denominations have seen the doctrine of the historicity of Adam challenged. While such challenges are not new, what is disturbingly new is that these challenges are coming from fellow evangelicals, from those who are supposed to uphold the inerrancy of Scripture.
Due to the supposed irrefutable scientific evidence that man has evolved from lower life forms and was not the product of God’s special creation, even those within the Reformed church are calling for a reshaping of how people think about the historicity of Adam. Some have gone so far as to say that Christians should abandon our conviction that Adam was a real individual. Others have tried to be subtler, seeking a mediating position. One thing on which all of the opponents of the traditional teaching are agreed is that it is simply wrong to believe what the Bible says concerning the real, historical existence of Adam.
The questions being raised are neither light nor harmless. Moreover, they are not new questions. But each generation is called upon to defend the great truths of the Bible. The PCRT was founded to respond to such compromised teaching. In the same spirit, PCRT 2013 responds to these harmful and serious questions, which constitute an assault on the very foundations of our faith.
