philfernandezIn this lecture, Dr. Fernandes shows that America’s acceptance of Darwinian Evolution has led to a de-valuing of human life. This has led to abortion, infanticide, destruction of the family unit. In the near future animal-human hybrids, human clones, and the outlawing of Christianity will follow—unless, of course, Americans repent and return to the God who blessed our nation.

Dr. Phil Fernandes is the senior pastor of Trinity Bible Fellowship and the president of the Institute of Biblical Defense.  Fernandes founded the Institute of Biblical Defense in 1990 to help train Christians in their defense of the faith. He also teaches Bible, philosophy, and world religions at Crosspoint Academy and the Gateway School of Ministry in Bremerton, WA. He has completed doctoral work in both philosophy of religion (Greenwich University) and theological studies (Columbia Evangelical Seminary), and is currently doing further doctoral work in apologetics (Southern Evangelical Seminary). He is a member of the Evangelical Theological Society, the Society of Christian Philosophers, the Evangelical Philosophical Society, and the International Society of Christian Apologetics.

Several websites list Dr. Fernandes as one of the top 100 Christian apologists in the English-speaking world. Dr. Fernandes has publicly debated leading atheists (Michael Martin, Jeffrey Jay Lowder, Dan Barker, Doug Krueger, Eddie Tabbash, Reggie Findley, Robert Price, etc.) at schools such as Princeton University, Washington State University, the State University of New York (Oswego), and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He has authored several books dealing with the defense of the Christian faith such as Hijacking the Historical Jesus, The Atheist Delusion, and God, Government, and the Road to Tyranny.
