Is Gavin Right About “Is Genesis History?”

Dec 7, 2023 | Creation, Podcast

Gavin Ortlund from @TruthUnites is a gracious and kind Christian brother. I disagree with his take on origins though, and I think a response to his latest video critiquing Is Genesis History? is warranted. I hope all who see this understand my heart toward the situation and find this to be a helpful (even if long!) contribution.
