The Cost of Intelligent Design and Q&A

May 5, 2016

On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast, Hank shares his thoughts on the great price that has been paid by Intelligent Design advocates such as Phillip Johnson, Stephen Meyer, and William Dembski. Well known evolutionary biologist, Richard Dawkins says that these very people are ignorant, stupid, or insane, yet unlike Dawkins, these brilliant scientists are willing to follow the evidence wherever it leads. Thus, Intelligent Design rightly practices open-minded science. Once you recognize design, you inevitably recognize a Designer. This is exactly what Paul teaches in Romans chapter 1.

Hank answers the following questions:

  • Why does it appear that all the major religions seem to have started in the East? Which one is the oldest?
  • How would you define faith?
  • Is it okay for me to use the words “our Father” when I am praying by myself?
  • The Qur’an claims that it is true because it is based on the Bible, but the Bible says not to add or take away from it. Can you comment on this?
  • It seems that all world religions are waiting for their own Messiah, but this Messiah will be the Antichrist. What are your thoughts on this?
  • I attend a Protestant church but I have been studying Eastern Orthodoxy and their view of the sacraments; is it okay to abandon these sacraments?
  • According to 2 Corinthians 7:10, what is the difference between godly sorrow and worldly sorrow?
  • Where did Cain’s wife come from? Did he marry a sibling?

About Hank Hanegraaff

Hendrik (Hank) Hanegraaff serves as president and chairman of the board of the North Carolina-based Christian Research Institute. He is also host of the nationally syndicated Bible Answer Man radio broadcast, which is heard daily across the United States and Canada — and around the world via the Internet at

Widely regarded as one of the world’s leading Christian authors and apologists, Hank is deeply committed to equipping Christians to be so familiar with truth that when counterfeits loom on the horizon, they recognize them instantaneously.

Through his live call-in radio broadcast, Hank equips Christians to read the Bible for all it’s worth, answers questions on the basis of careful research and sound reasoning, and interviews today’s most significant leaders, apologists, and thinkers.

Hank is the author of more than twenty books, which have cumulatively sold millions of copies. Christianity in Crisis and Resurrection each won the Gold Medallion for Excellence in Christian Literature awarded by the Evangelical Christian Publisher’s Association (ECPA); and Counterfeit Revival and The FACE that Demonstrates the Farce of Evolution each won ECPA’s Silver Medallion — the latter published in the condensed Fatal Flaws: What Evolutionists Don’t Want You to Know.

Other noteworthy volumes include The Prayer of Jesus, which rose to number one on the Christian Marketplace Bestseller list October 2002, and the popular Complete Bible Answer Book: Collector’s Edition, which clearly and concisely answers common questions regarding Christianity, culture, and cults, while tackling complex questions including, “How can Christians legitimize a God who orders the genocide of entire nations?” and “How could the Bible command a rape victim to marry her rapist?”

Through his ground-breaking The Apocalypse Code: What the Bible Really Teaches about the End Times and Why It Matters Today, as well as his historical fiction works The Last Disciple Series and Fuse of Armageddon, Hank exposes the dangers of both Christian and secular Zionism. And in Has God Spoken? he provides memorable proofs for the Bible’s divine inspiration.

Additional works include The Legacy Study BibleThe Covering: God’s Plan to Protect You from Evil, and the Creation Answer Book.


He is a regular contributor to the award-winning Christian Research Journal and an articulate communicator on the pressing issues of our day, having spoken in leading churches, conferences, and on college campuses throughout the world (most recently at the University of Tehran, Iran).
