40 years of creation ministry in uk

Forty years ago, Creationism was not on the agenda for most Christian leaders in UK. Theistic Evolution (the belief that God used evolution to bring about creation) was regarded as orthodoxy.

Most of us have to listen to teachers promoting Evolution or the Big Bang. But how should Christians react when being taught these ‘theories’? Some Christians remain silent when Evolution is taught as a fact.
