This course met and exceeded my longtime expectations. I have already begun using what I learned in leading my Bible class and in common conversation.Dr. Nick T.
Thank you guys for providing all this amazing instruction. This is my 5th [Reasons Institute] course. … The structured instruction, reading, and backup provided by RTB is just great. I am encouraging everyone to come running and take advantage of these programs. I only wish I could spend all my time on these subjects. I have certainly matured as a Christian, and I certainly have come to understand the Christian worldview as Ken Samples instructs in the Critical Thinking course . . .. Even though I am in my 5th decade and have been everywhere and seen everything, I now see the moon, sun, stars, animals, birds, insects in a whole new light. It is amazing.Sid
I really enjoyed [the World Religions and Science] class, and I learned a LOT! Prior to the class, I had very little knowledge of world religions, biblical doctrines, and Christian apologetics. I also learned to think like a philosopher. Though it was extremely rigorous, the class was excellent overall and my experience was truly enriching.Joy
I never imagined that I would be taking Creation and the Bible. Now I know that the whole ministry is committed to spiritual passion and truth. … I appreciate how the class kept me engaged with God and his Word during a major crisis in my family. All praise and glory to the God of all creation.Pastor Ernie
Thank you for another great course. Thank you for raising our awareness of God’s glory and his revelations. Thank you also for pushing us and showing us that science and Christian values can help and support each other. [The Creation vs. Evolution] course and its materials have been very inspirational and given us lots to think about for the future.Cary
I have little scientific background and I have always basically left creation to my very limited knowledge and been OK with it. . . . Well, in this week’s lecture something clicked and I started getting it, like really getting it. It totally enthused me and opened another window that I never had a desire to see before. I actually feel like I know something about stars and planets, and why they are stars and planets. And what they mean and do in the grand scheme of things.Brandon
[Even though I am] not the science type, I too am having fun in this class. When I read the cell membrane thing in one of the handouts, the Holy Spirit quickened my heart. Suddenly there is a fire in me that can’t wait to find the next piece of the gigantic creation puzzle. It’s like discovering a clue to our existence and getting to know the heart of our Creator, too. Science is now my friend!Marylou
This class has far exceeded my expectations. As I’m preparing for the final, I can actually understand most of what we learned over the past weeks, which have gone incredibly fast. …This class has opened my eyes biblically. … I have learned new principles philosophically. The Word of God is true but what nature and science tells us is also true. The definitions of Sola Scriptura and Biblicism are extremely helpful. Romans 1:20 tells us we can know about God by what has been made. Thank you to Dr. Lennard and to my fellow students in making this a wonderful learning experience.Gary
I once thought that science was voodoo and it held no viable answers. However, I know that it does have its place in my faith. Thank you for a wonderful class.Joshua
I am currently watching a TV show about the creation of the universe and the source of life on Earth. It is amazing all that I now understand after what I learned with you in my classes. With programs like that [TV show], it is just more difficult to talk about Christ unless you have the correct understanding, like we get through your class. I just want to thank you for RTB.Peter
I think that for me the most important thing was being able to look at science and discover that the evidence that science is uncovering is actually making a stronger and stronger case for the correctness of the biblical creation model. I have been amazed by the design features of the universe, the anthropic principle that points to such great care on the part of the Lord to fashion a just-right place for us to live.Jerry
Just wanted to share a great experience I had last week sharing the RTB creation model with about 100 Chinese college students (mostly believers). This is having a great impact here encouraging these young students.John
This course . . . gave me greater confidence that my faith is reasonable and is supported by a mound of evidence in divine special revelation and more and more in the discoveries of the workings in our physical universe. Now I can come into conversation with evolutionists and young-earth creationists with intelligent understanding of the basics of how the universe works and the biblical support for an old universe creation view. I can have a civil conversation and not feel like I have no answers for the skeptic. . . . If I don’t have all the answers, now I have a resource to point them to that gives them intelligent, scientifically provable, empirical facts about the observable universe.Jeremy, a student at King’s College & Seminary
