Seminar by Vince LaPoint
Cedar Park Church, Bothell WA
April 5, 2017
The Bible says that in latter days, people will turn away from the truth and believe myths instead. Why would someone willingly exchange the truth in for a lie? Answer Evolution prepares us to respond to those who believe in evolution. We will consider some recent evolutionary myths and understand how a person’s worldview affects what information we believe and what we reject.
We will review definitions of evolution and science and then we apply these definitions to examples that are commonly brought up as evidence to support evolution. We will provide evidence and arguments that directly challenge the improper and unscientific hypotheses on which evolution relies. Then we will consider some of the supposed transitional life forms and take a look at some living fossils. You will see that the actual evidence supports a literal interpretation of the Scriptures and you will leave with a deeper conviction of the truth. All attendees will be presented with a handout for taking notes that will help them later be prepared to Answer Evolution.
About the Speaker:
Vince LaPoint was not raised a Christian. During his upbringing, he was introduced to naturalism, astrology, witchcraft, eastern mysticism, and various forms of organized religion. In school, he pursued math and science and has spent the last 25+ years in the high-tech industry. Convinced from the empirical evidence, not just blind faith, that the Bible is the true and reliable Word of God, he has rejected those futile paths. He has followed the same empirical evidence investigation with the Origins issue as well, but now views the historical science data with skepticism, which he formerly took on faith. He now is a Christian and teaches classes on apologetics and creation/evolution and has been a guest speaker at other churches.
Vince now attends Calvary Chapel Eastside in Bellevue, WA and is involved in ministry there. He actively mentors (disciples) young adults, addressing the concerns that our next generation is wrestling with. With his passion for apologetics and creationism, his door is always open for those who come by his place in pairs and you might find him in spiritual conversations in restaurants and other locations. He is an active member of The Gideons International, taking advantage of the opportunities to share the testimonies of God’s work around the world in churches, even as they distribute Scriptures locally and around the world.
