There is also just as much science to prove the young earth theory...or what God’s Word says!
Like the halo’s in the granite...these were made within a few seconds, not millions of years! I guess the bible can be trusted:)
The Bible is the first Book to state the Theory of Relativity. Time is a complex subject and depends (among other things) ones perspective.
Oh, for goodness sake! How long is infinity? How long in G-d’s time does it take to create an unending universe...and perhaps others? What constitutes a ‘day’ for G-d who lives forever? Does G-d even need days or nights...or ‘time’ for that matter? It’s just silly. Man is so arrogant that he believes HE is the center of all things and G-d must operate on Eastern Standard time. How blasphemous to say one believes in G-d and sets about to limit G-d to man’s own laws...which have often been proven wrong, and been MORE often just stupid.
God put the Bible in human terms for us to understand. An especially stupid human trait is to use humanity’s limitations to beat up on God.
The quote about a day with God being as a thousand years was written at a time when few had any concept of millions, let alone billions. The days seem to describe what we humans refer to as ages. The important thing is that God started it all in motion, whether billions of years ago, or less than ten thousand. Your belief system may vary, that’s your right.
Young earth, old earth, my salvation doesn’t depend on either. God created the earth, that is all that matters.
Back in the mid-seventeenth century, Archbishop James Ussher of the Church of Ireland calculated that the earth was created on October 23, 4004 BC at 9:00 AM—and I assume he meant Pacific Daylight Time. When my geology class met at 9 on the morning of October 23 some years ago, it turned into a surprise party put on by the geology department to celebrate the creation of the earth.
The old Earth was ruined by the fall of Lucifer when Lucifer was cast out of heaven with a third of the angels. In Genesis, God made things right again and “replenished” it.
Do you believe in a literal Adam and Eve?
Do you believe that death existed before Adam?
Do you believe that God destroyed the whole world in a global cataclysm?
I think the big, unanswered question is “Why did God hate dinosaurs?”
(NSFW, rude language)
Prove to me that today is thursday.
No, you are definitely not alone...millions have been driven away from the church, and Christ, because of this very topic.
No, millions have been driven away from the church because their refusal to submit themselves to the authority of Scripture.
These people are reprobates and have no business corrupting the church with damnable heresy
Church is not where someone goes to find affirmation of their personal feelings and beliefs.
