Dragons and the Bible - Central Institute

July 11th - July 18th, 2018

Dragons have been relegated to fairytale and myth in modern society, but a closer look at the history of mankind will prove that dragons are actually dinosaurs. This has incredible implications for our faith because those who believe in evolutionary theory try to separate the dinosaurs from humans by over 65 million years. Also, Darwinian thought has dictated recent Bible translation. For example, the King James Version used the word “dragon” 24 times in the Old Testament, while the modern translations replace the word “dragon” in almost every instance. We will use compilation scholarship (the combining of individual fields of study) to draw our conclusions: theology, paleontology, archaeology, dragon mythology, geology, biology, and history.

July 11 & 18 6:30 - 8:30pm in the chapel at Chapel Ridge campus

Note: No childcare will be provided unless there is a large demand for it. Please contact info@central institute.co for questions.
