Charles Clough

Role: Conference/Guest speaker

After four years of active duty as a weather officer supporting Air Force operations, he entered Dallas Theological Seminary. Charlie earned the Th.M. in Old Testament Hebrew while at Dallas, graduating in 1968. His master’s thesis was titled A Calm Appraisal of The Genesis Flood, which was a review and analysis of the reviews and analyses of John Whitcomb and Henry Morris’ classic work The Genesis Flood.

By this time in his life, he had examined the philosophical foundations—rarely mentioned in contemporary education—underlying the extension of the scientific method for forensics (study of past events not reproducible in laboratory conditions). He concluded that no conflict exists between actual data and the Bible’s historical narratives. The oft-cited “conflicts” between forensically applied science and the Bible arise solely due to the philosophical speculations required to generate interpretive theories, not due to any actually observed data. While involved in Christian ministry to university students, he utilized this insight to present biblical truths as forming a basic framework for all of knowledge.

Continuing his work with the Air Force as a Reservist in the early 1980s, Charles earned the M.S. in Atmospheric Science from Texas Tech University. From 1982 through 2006, he served as a staff meteorologist with the Department of the Army in charge of atmospheric measurements, modeling, and environmental applications to support weapons testing at Aberdeen Proving Ground, Maryland. He retired from the position as Chief of the Atmospheric Effects Team.

Starting in the fall of 1995, Charlie began teaching a Thursday evening class at Fellowship Chapel in Jarrettsville, Maryland on his Basic Framework for Christian Doctrine. This series was completed in the Spring of 2002. All of the 224 MP3 lessons, class handouts, lecture transcriptions, and miscellanea are available for downloading from this Web site: http://www.bibleframework.org

A well-respected Bible scholar, with a scientific background, Charles is a much sought-after conference speaker and teacher.  He is on the Governing Board and serves as a member of the Adjunct Faculty of Chafer Theological Seminary.

Charlie and Carol reside in Bel Air, Maryland. They are parents of four grown sons.

For those who are acquainted with what I refer to as the biblical framework approach to following out the implications of, and teaching the Word of God in our contemporary situation, this paper will be a review and update on using the framework approach cross-culturally with Muslim background believers. For those unacquainted with the framework approach, it will be an introduction and illustration of its use. Necessarily much of this paper is autobiographical in order to describe the origin, rationale, and method involved. ...

Duration: 1 hr 8 mins 10 secs
Most of us who have believed in the Lord Jesus Christ for eternal life recognize by this point in the early twenty-first century that biblically-based Christianity is in for the fight of its life. Adversaries include not only modernism that lives on in science and engineering circles, post-modernism that continues to dominate the liberal arts, but these adversaries also include neo-pagan forms of unbelief and militant, expansive Islam. No believer, and in particular our believing children, can escape these temptations of reinforced arrogance, subjectivity, and hatred of God’s revelation. In the Apostle John’s words, these adversaries are antichrists who all, as we shall see, fundamentally deny that Jesus is the Christ (1 Jo 2:18). ...
