Soli Deo Gloria
Welcome to the website of the Society of Creation, founded in August 2011. We are an organization of full-time faculty in various academic disciplines who teach at most of the ten institutions of the Concordia University System (CUS). We also welcome members who support our mission but are not CUS faculty. You don't need to be a faculty member to join us.
Our goals include support of the historic position of
The Lutheran Church--Missouri Synod on creation, encouragement of the same, and education. Our charter states, "To provide support, education, affirmation, and encouragement for those who teach the historic position of the LCMS on the doctrine of creation and to affirm the biblical position on creation." We do not take positions on other issues, relevant though they may be.
The photos on the left and above were taken in (left) or near (above) the Grand Canyon in July of 2012. The Grand Canyon contains much evidence for the worldwide flood of Noah, but also much beauty. Those who hold to a worldwide flood, as described in Genesis 6-9 almost always understand the creation story in Genesis 1 as a straightforward account.
"Posterity will marvel that so very flimsy and dubious an hypothesis could be accepted with the incredible credulity that it has" (Malcolm Muggeridge on the theory of evolution, The End of Christendom, p. 59).
