Resumo

TUCKER, Roger. Fine Tuning Mission to reach those influenced by Darwinism. Verbum Eccles. (Online) [online]. 2014, vol.35, n.1, pp. 01-09. ISSN 1609-9982.

The scientifically aware section of the South African population is increasing. Many are being exposed to the concept of Darwinian evolution. Exposure has generated a religious sub 'people group' who have problems with Christianity because they have been influenced by the naturalistic element in Darwinian philosophy. Christian antagonism towards evolution has often prejudiced them unfavourably towards the gospel. Recent discoveries concerning the fine-tuning of the universe have now presented a window of opportunity for overcoming this. It may enable the church to 'fine-tune' its missionary approach to present them with the gospel in a more acceptable manner. It is suggested that Paul's Areopagus speech provides a model for such cross-cultural evangelism. A section is included at the end, describing some objections that have been raised against the cosmological fine-tuning apologetic.
