Imagine you are talking to two other persons: a socialist and Murray Rothbard. And imagine the socialist makes the following statement: “There isn’t a capitalist or a socialist way to help the poor.

While all of what the Confession says in Chapter Four—brief as it is—is indeed true, a very crucial is point is overlooked by this historic document of Reformed theology.

Michael Ruse, Professor of Philosophy at Florida State University, devotes a chapter to the subject of eschatology in his book The Evolution-Creation Struggle.

Dr. Henry Morris, president and founder of the Institute for Creation Research, died on February 25, 2006 at the advanced age of 87. Never willing to “retire,” Dr. Morris was a man who was active in prolifically defending the Christian faith until the very end.
