  • REQUIRES AND UNDERSTANDING OF ITS FALL
  • REQUIRES AND UNDERSTANDING OF ITS END
  • BECOME EVOLUTIONISTS
  • SYMPATHETIC TOWARDS LONG AGES
  • ADD OPINIONS TO THE BIBLE
  • REJECT OTHER MIRACLES
  • SHALLOWNESS IN UNDERSTANDING THE POWER OF GOD

4
IF WE FAIL IN UNDERSTANDING THIS
  • AN UNDERSTANDING OF ITS CREATION
  • REQUIRES AND UNDERSTANDING OF ITS FALL

THE CREATION WEEKGENESIS 11
  • IN THE BEGINNING
  • FOUNDATIONAL PASSAGE OF BIBLE
  • FIRST THING SPOKEN OF IS TIME
  • THREE DIMENSIONAL UNIVERSE
  • TIME BEGINNING
  • SPACE HEAVENS
  • MATTER EARTH
  • MAY REFLECT THE TRI-UNE NATURE OF THE GODHEAD

7
THE CREATION WEEKGENESIS 11
POINT
  • GOD EXISTS BEFORE MATTER
  • GOD EXISTS BEFORE SPACE
  • GOD EXISTS BEFORE TIME
  • GOD IS NOT LIMITED BY ANY OF THESE BOUNDARIES!

8
2 PETER 38 But, beloved, do not forget this
one thing, that with the Lord one day is as a
thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.
9
Question Concerning The Beginning
  • when was the beginning. . .how old is the earth?
  • Archbishop James Usher (1581-1659) fixed 4004 BC
  • LXX 5270 BC
  • JOSEPHUS 5555 BC
  • evolutionists/progressive creationists suggest
    billions of years ago
  • assumptive
  • no proven accurate dating method
  • observations often fit prevailing paradigm

DATING
10
Scientific Dating
  • Of the methods that have been used to estimate
    the age of the earth, 90 percent point to an age
    far less than the billions of years asserted by
    evolutionists (How About Carbon Dating?)
  • evidence of rapid rock formation
  • red blood cells found in unfossilized dinosaur
    bone
  • moon slowly receding from earth 1 ½ inches year
  • salt entering sea much faster than escaping
  • etc.

DATING
11
  • PROBABLE AGE OF EARTH
  • 6000 10,000 YEARS
  • FACTS
  • biblical framework doesnt allow millions of
    years
  • no death of nephesh (life) before sin
  • reasonable scientific methods suggest younger
    earth
  • the creation work week was 6 solar days not
    long ages

morning were the sixth day (Gen. 131)

diseases, and violent deaths, God saw all that He
had evolved and behold it was very good (The
Darwinian Christian 131)

The fact that this compass Prov. 827, AV,
sjw had to be set on the face of the deep
shows that the face of the deep originally had no
such sphericityit was formless, exactly as
intimated in Genesis 12. Elements of matter and
molecules of water were present, but not yet
energized. . .the physical universe had come into
existence, but everything was still and darkno
form, no motion, no light (Henry Morris, Genesis
Record, p. 51)
