Article
Full-text available
Rugby Australia's termination of Israel Folau's playing contract for posting a paraphrase of Biblical verses that communicate the sinfulness of various behaviours including homosexuality, should concern all Australian workers, not just Christians and people of other religious faiths. This article examines the facts and circumstances of Folau's case...
Article
Full-text available
Modern day international relations are dominated by human rights talk and many political causes around the world today have been framed in terms of human rights. But how are human rights defined and where do they come from? Existing human rights instruments are merely declarative and offer no ontology or justification for their declarations. This p...

In a world that has become increasingly skeptical of, and hostile to, Christianity, where do evangelicals stand? What happened to evangelical churches? What does it mean to be an evangelical? This paper argues that the evangelical movement has lost its way. Despite its creeds and confessions and high view of Scripture, many evangelicals—including e...

This paper offers a detailed rebuttal of Darek Isaacs's criticisms of my recently published paper "Human Dominion and Reproduction" (Kulikovsky 2012). The paper demonstrates that Isaacs has confused concepts and mischaracterized my position to the point that his critique amounts to a straw man argument.
Article
Full-text available
In the early chapters of Genesis, God instructed Adam and Eve—the entire human race at that time—to “Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it.” Mankind was instructed to rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air and every other living creature that moves on the ground. But are these commands really commands? If...

In Faith & Life September 2010, Mark Brett and Chris Marshall responded to my article ‘Wrestling with Aboriginal Issues.’ They found my article ‘profoundly disturbing,’ and reflecting ‘an inadequate reading of the Bible’ and ‘a serious distortion of the facts.’ I had originally planned a second article discussing practical steps the Christian commu...
Article
Full-text available
The interaction between Australian Aborigines and the rest of Australian society and the problems and issues that have arisen are difficult and complex. Such problems require effective and just solutions that are well thought-out and grounded on biblical principles. Token, patronising, ‘feel-good’ responses will simply not do. This article will exa...
Article
Full-text available
The recolonization model is a recently proposed diluvial solution to many enigmas of the rock record. Working within the framework of the global stratigraphic succession developed by uniformitarian geologists over the past two centuries, it seeks to reconcile it with Biblical history by moving the Flood event to the very base of the stratigraphic r...
Book
Andrew S. Kulikovsky brings to the debate among creationists a robust reading of the relevant biblical texts, including the opening chapters of Genesis. He argues that biblical authority applies to the natural world of the sciences and history as well as to matters of faith and conduct. Scripture itself clearly points to a recent creation of the ea...
Article
Full-text available
The first paper in this series discussed God’s present work in creation and humanity’s relationship with the created order. This second part seeks to expound a Christian view of both development and environmentalism. Because of the Fall, humanity’s stewardship role has not ended, but it has become much more difficult. The Fall and its effects are n...
Article
Full-text available
Despite its fallen state, God has not abandoned His creation. He constantly sustains and preserves it through His common grace and providence. Although fallen, human beings are still God’s image bearers and mankind is still the pinnacle of God’s creation. Furthermore, mankind still has dominion over the rest of creation and, as God’s stewards, we a...
Article
Full-text available
The first paper in this three-part series discussed God’s present work in creation and humanity’s relationship with the created order. The second part expounded a Christian view of development and environmentalism. In this third and final paper, the ethics behind environmentalism are considered and a set of principles are proposed that can guide ou...
Article
Full-text available
Analysis of the historical development of doctrines and theological motifs is a crucial but often neglected element of the interpretive process. Such investigations protect the interpreter from making the common mistake of reading later ideas back into the biblical text. This survey outlines the major views on Creation and the age of the earth advo...

Full-text available
One of the challenges to those who hold to the biblical view of a relatively recent creation is the question of how to understand general revelation and integrate the conclusions of modern science with our understanding of Scripture. At present, the understanding of the majority of both Christian and non-Christian scientists stands in stark contras...
Article
Full-text available
The 'rest' mentioned in Hebrews 4:1-11 has been used by a number of 'progressive' creationists 12 as 'evidence' that the Bible can be reconciled with the billions of years postulated by evolutionists/ uniformitarians. Because this passage includes a quotation from Genesis 2:2, God's rest has been equated with the seventh day of creation. Considerin...
