Today's Creation Moment

An Unused Religious Icon?
Psalm 9:17
"The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God."
Are we Christians becoming less able to defend the truths of Scripture, like creation? Dozens of studies show that not only are we, as a group, less ready to defend the hope that we have in Christ,...

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.

I absolutely agree with this. Some clergy, pastors have lost it by trying to fit into the thinking of the world. they forget that the word of God is sufficient for all matters pertaining to life.

The race to seem "educated" is more important than being correct. And how can you actually be correct? By going to the Lord. You have to throw out the wisdom of the world if you want to avoid being a fool.

Exactly! I recently had someone from church praising a certain Sunday School teacher, whom I know to be open to evolutionist ideas. He considers himself a physicist, and for this, he turns from the Lord and subscribes to stupidity. I told the person from church I would have to discount him as a teacher, since he had not done his homework enough to know what he was talking about on Genesis 1, and what else could he know? Yeah. Thanks, but I'll check with the Lord when I want to know something. And I'll spend my time reading Isaiah, not listening to a physicist who's closed his ears to the voice of the Lord.

"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.

Clearly, you haven't checked with the Lord on anything, or you would know Moses had records from the days of Adam and that Joshua and others who followed the Lord had access to and helped keep the records Moses kept. Joshua or someone else who knew Moses probably put that comment in, the same as I would comment on a godly man or woman. I could tell you a lot about Paul, and yet you might argue that I don't know him. But I do. I know his character. And I know the same Lord who is his Lord, the Lord God of Israel, Jesus Christ.

Fact is, we are all one in Christ, so you are in error, being someone who wants to completely distance yourself from heaven. And since that's your wish, you shall probably succeed.

But don't try to cast aspersions on Moses and on the records kept of the word of the Lord just because you don't know anything or anyone worthwhile yourself.

P.S. The comment about Moses' character is correct. You would know this if you remotely knew anything at all. Why don't you read the Bible before you expose yourself as knowing nothing?

"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!)

In fact, this is a misunderstanding common among 21st and 20th century thinkers, who are seemingly unaware that the term "wine" in King James English referred to fine juice made of fruit, not fermented drinks. Of course, since Jesus and his family were far from rich, the wine that they provided probably was not juice of pomegranate or some other exotic fruit, but most likely grape. In the heat of the day, as the wedding progressed, the wine would sour. The surprise of his guest was not that the wine had fermented or was fermented, but that it was instead fresh to the taste.

P.S. By the way, it is a good idea to check out what the Lord had to say about it. Lev. 10:9 Do not drink wine nor strong drink. In other words, do not drink wine that has been fermented so that it has become "strong drink." Fresh wine, however, is a blessing, and is described as such in the Bible, such as when the Lord gives you plenty of corn and wine.

Clearly, the Lord views fresh juice of the vine as a sustaining part of your diet, but forbids fermented drink.

Numbers 6:3 He shall separate himself from wine and strong drink, and shall drink no vinegar of wine, or vinegar of strong drink, neither shall he drink any liquor of grapes, nor eat moist grapes, or dried.

Interestingly, if you are someone who has never forced your body to take in fermented drink, you will certainly notice that alcoholic beverages smell like vinegar and are repulsive. Drinking fermented drinks is something people do merely to pickle their brains, and it is nothing the Lord recommends or allows.

I would have made the point in the post that water does not turn instantly into fresh juice. That's an accurate way of describing it. The point is, the Lord acts instantly. He cannot be confined to human action, human understanding, or human thought.

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.

When Jesus multiplied the bread and fishes to feed the multitude, he didn't have to sit there and hope somehow the food would evolve in a slow process. No! It took place in an instant. How old was the fish? Half a second. How old was the bread? Half a second.

How old is this solar system? It's now about 6,000 years old, but when Adam came down, it wasn't.

How long does it take to create a planet? As long as it takes God to decide to do it. Planet-making is not the problem. It's the evil of people's cold hearts that's the problem.

Remember when the Lord said you should not limit the Holy One of Israel? Then don't think evolutionary theories can limit God. God will still make millions of solar systems in the blink of an eye and the only person you'll be limiting is yourself.
