The Bible Is NOT a Theory!

 

The Bible Is NOT a Theory!
Unlike evil-oo-shun – which must be rethought, reshaped, and redesigned every few years – the Bible is not a theory. God dictated to Moses precisely what He did on each "evening and morning" day of Creation, and then He made sure that the genealogies from Adam on were included in the Bible so we would KNOW that the universe is some 6,000 years old, not millions or billions.
But some smart person decided one day that APPEARANCE = REALITY, and new extravagant ages began to be thrown about – first in hundreds of thousands of years, then millions of years, and then billions of years, as the atheists became bolder. If that rock at your feet APPEARS to be 100 million years old, then that rock MUST BE 100 million years old ... AND THE BIBLE IS WRONG. (Never forget that last conclusion, because that was ALWAYS their point.)
Come now, and let us reason together. At the exact instant when God first breathed life into Adam, how old did Adam APPEAR to be? 21? How old WAS he? A second, even if Adam had a scar on his knee from a childhood accident.
When God first fashioned Eve from Adam's rib, how old did she APPEAR to be? 18? How old WAS she? A second.
When Adam first opened his eyes, how old did the trees in the Garden APPEAR to be to him? 100 years? 200 years? How old WERE they? A second, even if Adam had chopped one down and counted 200 rings.
In Jesus' first New Testament miracle, how old did the fine aged wine APPEAR to be? Several years? How old WAS it? A second. And while we're at it, let's be clear about something else – He didn't turn the water into wine because water will NEVER turn into wine – not in a million years. No, Jesus CREATED wine where there had been only water because JESUS IS THE JOHN 1:1 "WORD".
They tell you that the light from that twinkling star took 100 billion years to reach us. What they don't realize is that God created the light BETWEEN here and there at the same time that He created both here and there. At the very second that He first spoke, God created a fully functioning universe with the APPEARANCE OF AGE.
It's one thing for atheists to try to disprove or discredit the Bible – that's what atheists do. It's something else altogether, however, when those in the church choose to believe the world over the Word and scramble to rethink, reshape, and redesign the Bible. People add to or subtract from the Bible at their eternal peril.
GOD SAID WHAT HE MEANT AND MEANT WHAT HE SAID!
Aiding and abetting those whose sole (or is it soul?) purpose is to try to prove that God doesn't exist and that the Bible is a lie is NOT a mission any Christian should pursue. God sees, and the Bible is NOT a theory!

Since evolution requires billions of years (according to the evolutionists) and the earth is only thousands of years old (according to the Bible) if one subscribes to any of the Darwinian theories, they have to somehow defend their hypothesis of billions of years. They have yet to do so effectively, and convincingly. This premise is as true for atheists as for theistic evolutionists.

When I chose reading material, or a Bible expositor from available media sources on a subject that even hints of a billion year old universe, I tend to discount most of the content as conjecture. This includes well known Bible commentators and pastors. My logic is the same as the pro-choice churchmen, liberal theologians, and the LGBT-supporting clergy. If they can't recognize the most basic tenets of Christianity, they have nothing of use to me.

"Now Moses was a very humble man, more humble than anyone else on the face of the earth." - Numbers 12:3

Interesting that people think Moses wrote that.

"They tell you that the light from that twinkling star took 100 billion years to reach us."

Whoever "they" are, they are not competent astronomers. Such a star may exist, but it is not visible to even the best telescope. Its distance from Earth is almost 8 times the age of the Universe thus far (all the way from the Bang), and that would make it invisible. Even if the light traveled through a passing wormhole, the star would only be visible for a few seconds, and it would be hard to distinguish from a fluke in the equipment used to observe it.

This error aside, it is outside the behavior of a loving God to lie to us systematically in the natural record. Like all Young Earth ramblings, this article conveniently ignores this latter point.

I wholeheartily agree with your comments.

The only thing I question is the Statement "Appearance of Age". This is not meant to be a criticism but the statement "Appearance of Age" is pure speculation. I personally do not know of any evidence to support that claim. It's like this nonsense about CO2 causing global warming. You can not extrapolate from the present and make statements about the past (thousands of years) without encountering a large propagation of error. There is no way to know at a high statistical confidence level that what you are saying is true! Logic dictates that everything was created good (or to Elohim perfect) and would not "Appear to be Old".

I take issue with the comment that the 'wine' the Lord Jesus made was 'aged', which to me may mean fermented. The Lord Jesus would not make fermented wine! The wedding guests were already drunk and the Bible frowns on drunkenness ........... so the wine He made would have been lovely, fresh, unfermented grape juice, the very best! (And they thought so too!)

Awesome post! Powerful, meaningful, and to the point. Love it.

You're right, the bible isn't a theory. A theory is a well established body of knowledge that is consistent with all known facts. The bible's just a myth.
