Dilworth Church of Christ pastor Earl Barnett will host a television special this Saturday night on CBS 42 from 7-8 p.m. The spot, paid for by Barnett’s sponsors, is called “Our God is an Awesome God” and will discuss his opinion and views on questions related to the Bible.

Among the questions Barnett will attempt to answer are:

•Do we have a reliable copy of the Bible?

•Does the Bible conflict with true science?

•Does the Bible say the Earth is just 6,000 years old?

The special mostly consists of Barnett standing in front of a screen that shows scriptures, photos, talking points and videos related to the discussion.

Barnett said he will also discuss the Book of Nature and how it relates to the Bible.

He points to various species, such as the squid, octopus and cuttlefish as definitive proof that the Earth and its inhabitants were the detailed design of a creator, rather than by evolution or other means.

He points to various other species of animals to reinforce his views, as well as using the model of human DNA as further proof of an intelligent creator who fashioned every detail of each human, animal and plant.

Barnett’s last special, shown last year, reached 67,000 homes. After the airing, the program will be archived on ww.cbs42.com under the Community tab.
