THINKING ABOUT CREATION VS EVOLUTION – PART TWO
As a Christian we must never forsake the fact that what the Bible says is true. We must not let the evolutionist shake our confidence in the Bible. If we have trouble with Genesis chapters one through eleven you can bet we will have trouble with the rest of the Bible. Do not be intimidated by the seemingly complexity of the questions and the wide variety of viewpoints. It doesn’t have to be that way. You are just as smart as they are. You have a mind that God has given you to use. Read Joshua chapter one and notice what God had to say to Joshua about how to have success.
Let’s take “Radiometric Dating” which can sound very intimidating. God said, “Thus the heavens and the earth, and all the host of them, were finished. And on the seventh day God ended His work” – Genesis 2:1-2.
Let me ask you a very simple question, “how many and what kind of people were around when God created the rocks?” The answer: “None!” It is a simple truth of the Bible that people were not there when God created the rocks. What’s the point? The point is that we can only guess about their content or how quickly radioactive elements decayed.
However, God was there and the Bible lets us know that the earth is very young in terms of years. Simple fact, the rocks we see today have all formed within the last six thousand years (many of them during Creation and the Flood). It has not taken billions and billions of years as the evolutionist would have us believe. Who is right man or God? You have nothing to be ashamed of by standing where God stands and defending the Bible.
