Mining for Truth is a monthly Thinking Matters gathering held in Hamilton which seeks to deepen people’s understanding and awareness of various Christian issues and culturally relevant topics discussed from a biblical worldview.
Every month, we invite a guest speaker to present on a given topic with periodic breaks in their talk to encourage discussion both with the speaker and those around you. The point of this is to allow you to soak up the information you just heard, process it with your neighbors, and perhaps even challenge others with a different point of view.
The Global Flood: Fact or Fiction?
Presented by Michael Cook
Date: Saturday 11th May Time: 7-9pm Location: St Matthew Lutheran, 27 Abbotsford St, Whitiora, Hamilton
The watery cataclysm of Noah’s day is treated as a major historical event of global impact in both the Old and New Testaments, yet today, many consider the Flood to be either a myth or simply a localised event. If the biblical account of a year-long, massively destructive global event was in fact true, what type of evidence would we expect to see on Earth today? Michael Cook explores this challenging, yet fascinating topic, drawing on earth science and theological evidence.
