Jeannie Fulbright: My Personal Beliefs

I feel it's really important that people know what I, author of the Apologia Young Explorer series, believe just so there is no confusion or doubt. I'm not speaking for Apologia or anyone else, but just for myself, a Creationist author. All of my books carry these beliefs throughout.

1. I believe the Bible is the infallible, inerrant word of God. (2 Timothy 3:16)

2. I believe the Bible (and Genesis) should be read and understood literally. It is totally trustworthy. (Mark 10:6, Mark 13:19-20, Luke 11:50-51, John 8:44, Romans 5:12-19, 1 Cor 15:21-22, 45-47, 2 Cor 11:3, 1 Tim 2:13-14, 1 Cor 11:8-9, Romans 1:20, 1 Pet 3:20, 2 Pet 2:4-9, 2 Pet 3:3-7, Luke 3:23-38 - Genealogy of Christ traces him back to Adam).

3. I believe the earth and everything in it, including the universe, was created in six literal days. (Gen 1-11, Hebrews 11:3-7)

4. I believe when Adam sinned, the entire universe experienced destruction and decay and was subject to the bondage of a fallen world. Before the fall of man, the world had not experienced destruction, decay, death, or any other factors associated with the fall. (Romans 5:12, Romans 8:18-25)

5. I believe Jesus came as a result of this literal fall. This literal fall is the reason we need a Savior. (Luke 19:10, John 3:17, 1 Tim 1:15)

6. I believe Jesus came to redeem us from the fall and restore us to Himself, and that one day all of creation will be liberated from the bondage, decay, and destruction that occurred at the fall. (Romans 8:18-25) (Acts 3:21)

7. If you truly believe in your heart that Jesus died for your sins (took the punishment for your sin upon Himself), you immediately receive the gift of restoration to God, which Jesus offers. This is salvation. (John 3:16, John 3:36, John 6:40, John 11:25, Romans 5:8, Romans 2:9, 1 John 4:10, Acts 16:31, Hebrews 10:39, Romans 10:9)

8. I believe the Bible supports the Creationist view of Scripture, and that you will find every word in Scripture backed by science. (Gen 1 - 11, 2 Timothy 3:16, plus many evidences throughout)

9. I believe Jesus believed in a young earth view of Scripture and that Genesis should be read literally. (Mark 10:6, Mark 13:19-20, Luke 11:50-51, John 8:44)

10. I believe it is important that we teach these truths to our children in order to ground them in the Word of God. (Matthew 28:20, Deut 6:4-9, Romans 14:23)
