Show Notes

In today’s episode, Ray, E.Z., Mark, and Oscar are joined by Ken Ham, founder and CEO of Answers in Genesis (AIG), the Creation Museum, and the Ark Encounter. Accompanying him is Joe Boone, the president of AIG. The conversation delves into the rich history of AIG, a ministry devoted to biblical authority, the gospel, and upholding the authority of God’s Word. This ministry emphasizes the importance of believers being able to articulate and defend their faith.

Joe Boone underscores the significance of apologetics by sharing a poignant story from his teaching experience. He highlights how unanswered questions often contribute to individuals leaving the church. The conversation encourages Christians to embrace an open dialogue about their questions, acknowledging that believers shouldn’t have a blind faith but rather a reasonable faith that can withstand scrutiny.

The name “Answers in Genesis” is derived from 1 Peter 3:15, a verse that calls on Christians to always be prepared to give an answer. The ministry’s focus is on providing answers, with the realization that many of these answers are found in the book of Genesis. Genesis, specifically chapters 1-11, is considered foundational to everything, offering a worldview and essential information for building a biblical perspective.

Joe Boone reflects on a transformative moment in his life that led him to his current work with AIG when he attended a homeschool convention featuring Ken Ham as the keynote speaker. Despite a personal loss, Ken delivered a powerful talk that left a lasting impact on several attendees. Ken, in turn, shares the influence of his father on his faith, highlighting his father’s commitment to the Word. He stresses the importance of parents immersing themselves in God’s Word to set a genuine example for their children.

The conversation turns to the attractions in northern Kentucky: the Creation Museum and the Ark Encounter. The Creation Museum is described as a captivating walk through the Bible, featuring numerous exhibits that bring biblical narratives to life. The Ark Encounter, a full-size replica of Noah’s Ark, stands as the largest freestanding timber frame structure in the world. Both attractions serve as powerful evangelism tools, providing answers with an apologetics emphasis.

Listeners are encouraged to explore the Answers in Genesis website to learn more about the work happening with AIG and The Ark Encounter. The exhibits serve as impactful tools for evangelism and provide believers with an opportunity to engage with non-believing family and friends through the lens of biblical truths.
