I have been reading a lot of Morris of late, wondering what you folks think of him.
Morris was the chap who re-invented the creationist view of Genesis back in the 60's.
Sound in theology for some fundamentalists.
I have read a few books, but that is all I know of him.
That is to say I have been reading a lot of his books, not that I have been reading a lot about him. Sorry for the poor choice of words.
I like his books. Some of his theories put forth in the early work has been disproved.
He has a great scientific approach.
I think he is dead isnt he?
Yes, Dr. Morris died in 2006.
He argued strongly for the universal flood, which made a lot of people happy. Those of us who held to a local flood didn't bat an eye.
Other than one thing that I know I disagree with him on, I think he's pretty good. But then again, I haven't done any research on him or anything.
*The one thing I disagree with him on is the idea that Jesus' body was a special creation and had no physical parents. I agree that He had no physical father but I disagree that Mary was not His physical mother.
Do you know where he said this?
My opinion of him is generally favorable, although I admit I have only read a small portion of what he has written. I have probably read more of his devotional stuff that I have of his more scientific stuff, but my wife has read a lot of his scientific stuff as well and says it's good (she and I both got our Bachelors degrees in the sciences).
I have read a number of Dr. Morris' books and met him at Virginia Tech. I agree with your above statement regarding his view of the incarnation. Incidentally they have moved part of their operation to Dallas.
I personally think they are doing a good work in their creation Science. there are a number of other groups who are working on creation science. More and more scientists are recognizing the flaws of evolution.
I heard about it from a thread on here. Let me find the thread again....
I've read most of his work and agree with most of it. I've know him since he taught at VPI.
I have always believed in a literal interpretation of Gen. so I agree with him. If I can't take Gen. or the first 11 chapters of it as fact, what part can I take of the Bible as fact and how would I know what part that would be?
IMHO of course!!:thumbsup:
His book on Revelation was kinda strange. But his book "The Long war against God" is on my top 10 list.
Do you guys also agree with Dr. Morris about Jesus' body being made specially for Him by God and not of Mary's egg?
I hold brother Henry Morris in VERY high regard.
During his time on earth as a christian he did a great service for the Body of Christ.
I have his work "Creation and the Modern Christian". It is excellant.
[page 134f, The Modern Creation Trilogy, Volume 1, by Henry and John Morris]
No! That view is totally contrary to Scripture!
I think Dr. Morris has a valid argument on the creation of Jesus in the womb as opposed to a fertilized egg. There is nothing in scripture either way, so it is all speculation at best, but may satisfy reason.
