This week we are talking about the false teachings of evolution. Humanism has taken over the teaching of origins in our schools at all levels and wee need to have answers to their false science. Let’s pick up where we left off yesterday.
In Tunisia, evolutionary scientists were excavating dinosaur foot prints. Of course, they said these dinosaur footprints were millions of years old. They kept digging and in the same layer they found human footprints. Massive research has been conducted, and both the secular and the Christians scientists agree. They found footprints of an adult human and two children walking in the same layer as the dinosaur footprints. This is a huge problem for the evolutionists because it upsets their whole time scale. Man shouldn’t have existed at the same time as these dinosaurs.
I am not a scientist, but I can tell you that the Bible tells us that the dinosaurs were around at the same time as man. Again, the evolutionist has a problem with the facts, but the facts fit with what the Bible says.
One of the biggest concerns for me, as a Christian, is that we are losing our children. When we send them off to college, the colleges are destroying their faith. Even those who come from good Christian families, and from good Bible believing churches, they are losing their faith. I believe that one of the reasons is they are being challenged on the issue of origins. This is why I chose to address this issue. We must give our children the answers to deal with the challenges they will face.
In one particular denomination they are losing 80% of their children who are more than 18 years old. The reason this is happening is, they don’t believe the Bible is the Word of God. They have doubts about its authority and its application.
It is kind of like two kids on a playground, a Christian, and a non-Christian. The Christian goes to his friend and tells him that the Bible is true, and that he needs to trust Jesus. The non-Christian says the Bible is not true. He starts asking him questions like, Where did Cain get his wife? Or, How could God get all those animals on the Ark? What about radio carbon dating? Is there really a God? And, Why is there all the pain and suffering in the world?
The Christian kid has no answers and goes home depressed. He asks his parent for help in answering these questions, and they don’t have any answers either. The problem today is that the parents don’t have the knowledge to give an answer for what they believe (1 Peter 3:15).
Skip tells me that the most asked question in all of the ministries he has been involved in, is Where did Cain get his wife? To those who know the Bible, it is a very simple question. To many Christians, it is a stumbling block. The reason it is a stumbling block is that they have not considered the biblical world view.
We need parents to get back to the authority of the Word of God. God to websites like Creation.com and find the answers. What parents really need to do is tell their children, I don’t know the answer, but let’s get the Word of God, let’s do some research on the Internet, and lets go to our pastor and find the answers. Many of the answers are very simple if we will just read our Bibles.
Most people are very familiar with Adam and Eve’s first two children, Cain and Able, but they are less familiar with Seth, and don’t know that they had other children also. The answers are there, if we will only seek them out.
And Adam lived an hundred and thirty years, and begat a son in his own likeness, after his image; and called his name Seth: And the days of Adam after he had begotten Seth were eight hundred years: and he begat sons and daughters: (Genesis 5:3-4)
The answer is that he married a close relation. Notice that I didn’t say sister. They lived a very long time, and there could have been many generations before Cain married. We need to remember that the prohibition against marrying a close relative isn’t given until Leviticus. In Cains time, it was quite acceptable.
The blood line would have been much more pure than it is today. The possibility that they could have deformities was less likely. There had not yet been enough time for the gene pool to be corrupted.
People ask how all of the animals got to the different continents? We see the separation of continents by oceans. These separations are caused by the worldwide flood.
Let’s take a look at the Ice Age. While we are looking at this, we will see the truth about global warming as well.
As we look at our world today, we need to remember that it only takes the right conditions for something to happen. In New England you hear about the ice age very early because the evidence is all around you. There are what they call, erratic boulders, Erratic boulders are boulders that are sitting in places where they ought not be. There may be a piece of granite sitting some place where there is no granite for 50 miles. How did it get there? It was brought there by the Ice Age.
The Ice Age is a real event that happened in the history of the world. It takes the right conditions for an ice age to happen. The secular world has no explanation for the conditions that cause the Ice Age. The Bible does talk about something that would allow for an ice age to happen. It is the conditions at the end of the Genesis flood.
Volcanism is something that God used during he history of our earth, we see the evidence all over the place. Consider this, during the flood the oceans rose to a level that covered all of the earth. The oceans would have been very warm. There are estimates the the temperatures in the Arctic Circle would have been as high as 81 degrees at one time. There would have been massive evaporation at that time. As the continents began to rise out of the water, the right conditions existed where snow could pile up very rapidly. This means that the Ice Age would have started right at the end of the flood.
Tomorrow we are going to look at the Ice Age from a biblical record. I think you will be surprised to see how well the Bible fits with the the scientific facts.
