Have you noticed that evolutionists have been able to get many church-goers
to accept their faith that the earth is billions of years old?
Not everyone believes in billions of years for the age of the earth but it does appear that a large number of people have converted to this belief.
So, given that the 'theory of evolution' and the 'geological column' are both unproven inventions, or conjectures, it would be good to see what the God, who was there at the beginning, has to say about origins.
Take Romans 1:20 for instance...
Rom 1:20 For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse.
according to Paul writing to the Romans, God's attributes have been clearly
revealed to man since the creation of the world!
Mar 10:6 But from the beginning of creation, ‘God made them male and female.’ ‘Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.’ So they are no longer two but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let not man separate.”
So out of Jesus' own words we have a record of man being on hand at the
beginning of creation and having marriages!
We can also get witness statements from the old testament. One such place is in Exodus 20, vers 11, which says...
Exo 20:11 For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day. Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and hallowed it.
So according to this statement written down by God Himself, the heavens
and the earth and the seas and everything that is in them were all made
in six days! And the only six days that God details of Him making
stuff is the six days at the start of Genesis 1, which has the sun,
moon and stars being made on Day 4 and man being made on Day 6. Just
two 24 hour days apart!
Best wishes for Grace and The Peace of Jesus.
