Today's Creation Moment

Jun

Lamech
1 John 3:12
We should not be like Cain, who was of the evil one and murdered his brother. And why did he murder him? Because his own deeds were evil and his brother's righteous.
Lamech was the great great great grandson of Cain, the world’s first murderer. We don’t know much about him, but what little we do know is not good. We know, for example, that he took two wives,...

God's Design

Climate Change and the Bible

Genesis 8:21-22
And the LORD smelled a sweet savour; and the LORD said in his heart, I will not again curse the ground any more for man's sake; for the imagination of man's heart is evil from his youth; neither will I again smite any more every thing living, as I have done. While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.

When I was a boy, Summers were brighter and warmer than they are today. In Winter, we always had snowfalls, that made the place look pretty on Christmas Day, but the snow did not last long enough to cause damage. Before we knew it, the snowdrops and daffodils were announcing Spring.

Is the Universe a Hologram?

Romans 1:21
Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.

Many astrophysicists have speculated that the universe is like a four dimensional sphere. If we imagine that we were ants, living on the surface of a very large beach ball, we might think that the surface on which we stood was a flat surface, even though it stretches around and back on itself in a sphere through the third dimension.

At the Foot of Mount St Helens

Psalm 29:7-8
The voice of the LORD divideth the flames of fire. The voice of the LORD shaketh the wilderness; the LORD shaketh the wilderness of Kadesh.

In another Creation Moment, I talked about the Road to Mount St Helens. One of my favorite spots on this road can be found 40 miles along the road – still 12 miles short of the dead end at the Johnston Ridge Observatory. At this point, you will find Castle Lake Viewpoint.

The Road to Mount St Helens

Psalm 29:9
The voice of the LORD maketh the hinds to calve, and discovereth the forests: and in his temple doth every one speak of his glory.

Most people visit the area around Mount St Helens, by leaving Interstate 5 in Washington state at exit 49, and traveling East, along a road called Spirit Lake Highway. The road is so called, because, before 1980, it used to terminate at Spirit Lake. The lake is no longer accessible by road from the West, and even from the East, a substantial hike is required. So, I like to refer to Spirit Lake Highway as the Road to Mount St Helens.

La nueva luz sobre el fechado radiométrico

2 Pedro 3:5
" Estos ignoran voluntariamente que en el tiempo antiguo fueron hechos por la palabra de Dios los cielos y también la tierra, que proviene del agua y por el agua subsiste...”

La mayoría de las personas encuentran el tema de fechado radiométrico demasiado técnico para ser entendido.  Hasta hace pocos años, los científicos que creen en la creación no han tenido los recursos necesarios para explorar el fechado radiométrico en detalle.

God’s Rainbow

Genesis 9:13
I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant between me and the earth.

Rainbows are beautiful. But why do they happen?

God’s RainbowIsaac Newton showed in his famous experiment that white light is a mixture of colors, which can be separated by refraction, or bending, using a prism. Light is similarly refracted by droplets of rainwater in the atmosphere, when the sunlight shines on them. The large bow-shaped spectrum of colors thus produced is what we see as a rainbow.

How Old Does the Earth Look?

Isaiah 46:9b-10a
I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me, declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done…

I have often been asked this question. “If the Earth is only 6,000 years, why does it look as if it is millions of years old?” Other people have suggested that the Earth could look as if it is millions of years old, because God could have chosen to make it look old. How Old Does the Earth Look?However, I am going to suggest a different answer to this question.

Why Does God Ask Questions?

Ezekiel 33:11
Say unto them, As I live, saith the Lord GOD, I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked; but that the wicked turn from his way and live: turn ye, turn ye from your evil ways; for why will ye die, O house of Israel?

Why does God ask questions? He has been asking questions, since the beginning of time.

He Formed It to Be Inhabited

Isaiah 45:18
For thus saith the LORD that created the heavens; God himself that formed the earth and made it; he hath established it, he created it not in vain, he formed it to be inhabited: I am the LORD; and there is none else.

There are those who believe that they can read the supposed evolutionary order of things into the account of creation in Genesis 1. However, when we look more closely, we realize that there are a number of discrepancies, which cannot be reconciled. Even evolutionary atheists have noticed this – for example, Richard Dawkins is adamant that it is not possible to harmonize Genesis with evolution.

Bacterial Research Does Not Require Evolution

2 Timothy 2:15
Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

Scientists at the University of Lincoln, in the UK, have discovered that there is no link between the shape of bacteria and their movement. The study, published in Nature’s Ecology and Evolution Journal, concerned the famous flagellum motors possessed by many bacteria. Their reasonable predictions that rod shaped bacteria would move faster than other shapes proved to have no support.

Evidence for Evolution Can Be Illogical

Colossians 2:3
In whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.

In a previous Creation Moments broadcast, we looked at why chimps and humans have similar features, and showed that it is because they have a common designer. Evolutionists use the similarities between organisms to suggest proof of descent from common ancestors. This is illogical. Let me explain a little logic. Suppose I use this syllogism:

The House of Cards Religion

Proverbs 9:10
The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding.

One well-known pastor has recently stated that, if we ask our young people to believe something, because “The Bible tells me so”, then we are creating a house of cards religion. What happens, he asks, when they go to college and find that the walls of Jericho did not really come down, or that what they have been told about the world being created in 6 days is at odds with the fact that the universe is 14.7 billion years old?

Cain’s Sacrifice

Genesis 4:4b-5a
And the LORD had respect unto Abel and to his offering: But unto Cain and to his offering he had not respect.

Why did God accept Abel’s offering, but not Cain’s? As a child, I just couldn’t get it. They both brought offerings to God. Why did God show such favoritism?

A Delay in OriginsI was told by teachers at elementary school that we should do the best we could for God. God deserves the best. But didn’t Cain bring to God the very best of his crops?

A Poem Lovely as a Tree

Psalm 96:12
Let the field be joyful, and all that is therein: then shall all the trees of the wood rejoice.

The gramophone was switched on, 12-inches of vinyl placed on it, and the needle balanced on the disc, in order for us to hear the music. This was my mother’s favorite record, featuring the deep, gravelly bass voice of Paul Robeson, singing a song called “Trees”.

Jesus’ Age for the Earth

John 1:1-3
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.

Did Jesus get things scientifically wrong? After all, He was a man of His times. Jesus’ followers could never have comprehended the sophistication of evolutionary biology and cosmology, would they?

Jesus’ Age for the EarthYet, in so many places, we read about Jesus stating things that went against the very grain of the society He lived in. This is because He told the truth.

Fountains of the Deep

Genesis 7:11
In the six hundredth year of Noah's life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened.

It must have made a tremendous noise, when the Earth’s crust cracked into pieces.

The Singing Lake

Psalm 66:4
"All the earth shall worship You and sing praises to You; they shall sing praises to Your name."

It's a quiet, cool, overcast morning at the lake. There's a hint of fog in the air and a fine, lightly falling drizzle. Then you notice the sound. It's almost a musical note, and it's coming from the lake. It's almost as if the lake were singing.

Not a Chance!

Psalm 148:7-8
"Praise the LORD from the earth, You great sea creatures and all the depths; fire and hail, snow and clouds; stormy wind, fulfilling His word…"

Is there any such thing as chance or luck? Does anything ever happen randomly? Many people don't realize that the Bible speaks to these questions.

The Miracle Star

Matthew 2:1-2
"Now after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, behold, wise men form the East came to Jerusalem, saying, 'Where is He who is born King of the Jews? For we have seen His star in the East and have come to worship Him.'"

What was the star the wise men followed to find the infant Jesus? Some suggest that it was a comet. Others say it was the conjunction of two or more planets or stars. Do any of these theories offer possible explanations?

The King of the Universe

Daniel 4:37
"Now I, Nebuchadnezzar, praise and extol and honor the King of heaven, all of whose works are truth, and His ways justice. And those who walk in pride He is able to abase."

That infant in the manger is God's voice to mankind. And despite appearances, He is the King of the universe.
