Fall Symposium Video

On the evening of December 8 CTS hosted its first Online Fall Symposium with twenty-one CTS members logging in. The topic for our symposium was “The Biblical Flood in the Literature of the Dead Sea Scrolls” led by our President, Dr. Jeremy Lyon. Wipf and Stock published Jeremy’s Qumran Interpretation of the Genesis Flood in 2015. If you have an interest in this topic, this book provides very helpful translations, descriptions, analyses, and discussions of four scrolls: the Genesis Apocryphon (1QapGen), a Genesis pesher (4Q252), a fragment of an admonition based on the Flood (4Q370), and a fragment of a paraphrase of Genesis and Exodus (4Q422).

The Fall 2022 Online Symposium video can be accessed via this link. In this way, those of you who were unable to join us can still hear the presentation and the subsequent Q&A.

Watch for announcements regarding future online symposia. We plan to offer at least two each year — one in the Fall and one in the Spring. The symposia provide only members the privilege of live-stream watching and participation. Every active member receives a Zoom invitation ahead of time so they can join the symposium. Post-symposium access to the videos are available to anyone through the CTS website.

Tax Exempt Status

Praise the Lord! The IRS granted tax exempt status to the Creation Theology Society under Internal Revenue Code (IRC) 501(c)(3). That means that donors can deduct contributions they make to CTS. It also means that CTS is qualified to receive tax deductible bequests, devises, transfers, or gifts. We filed for this exemption as a non-profit organization on August 3 — and we received a positive response in less than one month! The IRS even made the CTS effective date of exemption August 4, 2020, covering our entire history as an organization.

Thank you for praying for this important process and approval. We invite you to visit our Donate page by clicking on the appropriate link in the running head at the top of all our website pages, or by going to Donate in the drop-down menu under Home. Or, just click on this link
