New Book Validates Bible’s Historical Accounts, Challenges Evolutionary Timeline

Brilliant BookMIDLAND, MI – A new book released last month reveals the accuracy of the Bible’s historical accounts and spotlights several recent findings that contradict the evolutionary time-frame.

Bruce Malone, founder of Search for the Truth Publications, is a popular Christian speaker and author of several books, including “Censored Science.” His latest book, titled “Brilliant,” explores the timeline of world history through a biblical worldview.

“Cultures throughout the world are filled with mysteries which do not fit the pervasive evolutionary time-frame, but make perfect sense if the Biblical timeline of history is understood,” Malone said in a press release. “‘Brilliant’ takes the Bible seriously and every page contains an artifact from some ancient culture testifying to the reality of these true events of history.”

“Brilliant” highlights many recent historical and archaeological findings that challenge the uniformitarian, evolutionary time-frame. The Ice Age, the extinction of the dinosaurs, the Great Flood, and many other historical events are documented within the book’s pages.

In an interview with Christian News Network, Malone said many Christians today question or reject the reliability of the Bible’s historical accounts—particularly those in Genesis. This mentality is “enormously damaging to the credibility of Christianity,” says Malone.

“I’m not saying this is a salvation issue,” Malone stated, “but I am saying if you aren’t willing to accept the Bible in a clear, straightforward way, you’re certainly undermining some of the very basic doctrines of Christianity.”

Though many Christians focus primarily on spiritual matters with little regard for historical matters, Malone says this viewpoint is unwise: “In John 3:12—just four verses before the most famous verse in the Bible—Jesus says, ‘If you do not believe me of earthly things, how will you believe me of spiritual things?’ He connected the two.”

When Christians discount the Scripture’s historical accounts, the perceived reliability of the entire Bible is negatively affected, says Malone.

“Without out a doubt, the Bible has become increasingly not credible to the non-Christian world around us, and most colleges and most Christian colleges and most denominations totally ignore what the Bible has to say about the real, historical, physical stuff of the world around us,” he said. “And I think that’s a big part, if not the primary reason, the Bible has become not credible to the world around us.”

The purpose of “Brilliant,” Malone explained, is to recount history through a literal interpretation of the Scriptures.

“This book takes the Bible credibly,” he stated. “It assumes it means what it says, instead of assuming it doesn’t mean what it says.”

History makes much more sense when viewed through a biblical worldview, Malone told Christian News Network. For example, he said, dozens of flood legends around the world point back to the Great Flood and support the young earth perspective. From an evolutionary standpoint, the existence of these flood legends is inexplicable.

“History strongly connects the biblical viewpoint that we were recently created,” he noted.

Not only does “Brilliant” explain why history makes sense when viewed through a biblical worldview, it visually shows where world events occurred in the biblical time-frame.

“Every page of ‘Brilliant’ has a timeline running across the top that shows creation about 6,000 years ago, the Flood about 4,350 years ago … it shows where the Tower of Babel fits, and it also shows where the Ice Age fits in,” explained Malone.

Malone says the arresting visual layout of “Brilliant” will appeal to believers and non-believers alike. Plus, price discounts for multiple copies are designed to encourage distribution to friends and family.

“The ultimate end goal is to lead people toward a real, true relationship with God,” Malone stated. “But I think we do that by making the Bible credible, by making science credible, showing that it doesn’t contradict God’s Word—it supports God’s Word, and to make history credible, to make people understand that it doesn’t contradict God’s Word—it supports God’s Word.”

    If God had not created the universe, and life on earth, it would not exist. The universe did not create itself, and it didn’t happen by chance.

    • Mathew

      This is the sort of reasoning that is so very damaging to Christian claims. Even if the universe were created, that doesn’t mean “God” did it. Even if life was caused to start by some agency, that doesn’t mean “God” did it. Just because we don’t know how the big bang actually happened (14 billion years ago) doesn’t mean “God” did it. An unknown natural explanation is still more likely than a supernatural one… that isn’t going to change. It’s the 21st century people.

      • http://www.youtube.com/user/EyrtheFyre Regina Forbes

        I’m guessing you’re not a Christian. Here’s a question, if someone could prove to you to your satisfaction that God does exist- would you worship Him?

        • http://google.com IntheCustodyofCarl’sJr.

          That is the point isn’t it? Thank you for illuminating the rabbit trail.

          • http://www.youtube.com/user/EyrtheFyre Regina Forbes

            thanks. when you look at what someone says you gotta ask yourself…why are they saying it? and thats the motivation behind a non-believer…its not that they cant believe, its that they dont want to believe. like the same way a criminal cant find a cop…

      • Gary

        I disagree. A natural explanation for the universe, and for life, is impossible. You can wish God does not exist all you want, but you cannot change reality, even if it is the 21st century.

        • Elemental Brain

          “A natural explanation for the universe, and for life, is impossible.” – The same was once thought for many things, and we found them. You cannot say it is impossible.

          • Gary

            It falls to you and those who agree with you to prove what you claim.

        • Budlorance

          All the arguments against God are recycled. Rebellion is not new. Before I became a Believer I made all the claims opposing God I could think of. There’s hope for everyone, however saving faith will never be the result of a debate. It is a supernatural transformation by the indwelling of the Holy Spirit! One day many of those making these statements will say “that’s what they were talking
          about!”

      • bowie1

        But how does naturalism come into being when before there was nothing for it to come from? How does the universe’s non-existence come into existence since it has no self-awareness before it comes into being?

        • Elemental Brain

          Who says there was nothing?

          • Demopublicrat

            Where did that come from?

          • bowie1

            That is the only logical explanation since otherwise time and space would be eternal even in a small compacted point and this is impossible to get from the eternal past to the here and now. Eternity is forever and if it would be the same behind us we would never be able to get here. The only possibility is to have an eternal spirit who is not bound by time and space. He is the I AM where past, present and future are all the same to Him.

          • Elemental Brain

            Or perhaps space is cyclical. Or we have an incorrect understanding of eternity. Or a million other possibilities. “Nothing” has never been observed and there is no reason to think it can exist.

          • The Last Trump

            Exactly. There was God.

          • Pax Humana

            Elemental Brain, you lack one and that is an elemental truth.

      • http://google.com IntheCustodyofCarl’sJr.

        How would you explain concepts for which we have no evidence? Take Eternity, for example.

        Ecclesiastes 3:10 I have seen the task which God has given the sons of men with which to occupy themselves. 11 He has made everything appropriate in its time. He has also set eternity in their heart, yet so that man will not find out the work which God has done from the beginning even to the end. 12 I know that there is nothing better for them than to rejoice and to do good in one’s lifetime;

        what is the natural explanation for conceiving of timelessness when all humans experiences are the results of time?

        • Neiman

          Natural science tell us that man is a stimulus/response being; that is, whetever we think of has to be stimulated by something real in our daily environment and we respond in various ways to what we see; but, where was the stimulus, what caused men to believe there was a God? Could it be that this knowledge is in the heart of every man?

          • http://google.com IntheCustodyofCarl’sJr.

            Yes it is. But good luck trying to reason anyone into faith. I almost started down that wormhole myself. again. Salvation from a perfect eternal God is beyond reason. His love isn’t reasonable.

          • Neiman

            It is possible just to enjoy debating various issues that we might gain insights and knowledge that will help confirm our own faith or shows us areas where we might need for more meditation on God’s Word.

          • http://google.com IntheCustodyofCarl’sJr.

            of course! But I don’t see the validity in evangelizing by looking at the dirt.

          • Neiman

            Everything is not about evangelism. That is indeed a gift of the Spirit and a call upon every believer to be sure, but there is also a need to strengthen the faith of other believers and one way to do that, is to challenge the lies of the enemy with the Truth. Thus strengthened, won’t they do better at winning souls for Christ?

          • http://google.com IntheCustodyofCarl’sJr.

            That is true, there is exhortation and encouragement, among other ministries and gifts, but it is a falsehood to say that the evolutionary debate is not largely, if not mostly, crafted for evangelistic purposes. Why focus on an argument with as little to no evidence and as futile as the “search” for proof of God’s existence? We know God exists, we know he created everything; those with doubts are lying to themselves and somewhere in the spiral of Romans 1, arguing themselves dizzy.

            There are more concrete and wondrous ways of exhortation, encouragement and evangelism – like history as it relates to prophecy, and how the unfulfilled prophecies are going to come to pass in the same manner as those already fulfilled.

          • Neiman

            I applaud your evangelistic zeal, while I believe withing limits it is necessary to counter the lies of the enemy for the sake of babes in Christ and those poor lost souls that will never be open to the Gospel because of deception.

      • Demopublicrat

        The big bang happened? Or do people just have religious faith that it did?

        • http://google.com IntheCustodyofCarl’sJr.

          according to string theory it did. Problem is God says the universe is woven as a blanket, so in effect God says, you may be on to something, but I have used, relative to your eyes, an infinite number of strings!

          • Demopublicrat

            More religious belief?

          • http://google.com IntheCustodyofCarl’sJr.

            It takes a lot of faith to work out that equation

          • Pax Humana

            Are you not guilty of promoting your OWN religious belief yourself, Demopublicrat?

          • Demopublicrat

            Nope, just asking questions, and pointing out the obvious.

          • Pax Humana

            Do you mean that you and the rest of your like-minded ilk are obviously stupid, foolish, and unwise as YAHWEH EL ELOHIM and His Holy Word have pointed out to humanity? Yes, that IS indeed painfully obvious in you historical revisionist, attention whoring, Lucifer worshiping, and Illuminati promoting trolls.

          • bowie1

            Isn’t the string theory an alternate viewpoint to the big bang theory (and the steady state theory that came before the big bang theory)?

      • The Last Trump

        The universe and everything in creation reveals clear design and purpose. Vast complexity and intricate design. To deny a Creator flies in the face of the evidence. That isn’t going to change. And it has not. Come on people. It’s the 21st century. Time to stop believing that MAGIC created everything. Just follow the evidence.

      • The Last Trump

        Information, organization and purpose. Doesn’t happen by accident. An “intelligence” very clearly designed everything. There’s just no getting around this.

        • Ken

          You refuted your own statement. An intelligence responsible for designing the universe would itself necessarily possess information, organization, and purpose, and therefore couldn’t exist unless it was also designed. So who designed it, another creator? And who designed that creator?

      • Pax Humana

        Sod off, Matthew! No one cares for the opinion of a servant of Lucifer like yourself around here!

      • Andy

        You’re illogically and unfairly stacking the deck in favour of your preferred worldview, when you claim “an unknown natural explanation is still more likely than a supernatural one.”

        On what possible scientific grounds could you know that? You’re making an affirmation of FAITH, mister.

  • Neiman

    I will have to get this book.

    If one undermines Genesis, the first words of God to the world, then they are undermining the very foundation of the Christian faith. They are in effect saying God lied and as He has no motive to lie, it is to undermine His very existence.

    • Mathew

      False… they’re saying people made claims that are wrong.

      • Neiman

        Who are they? What false claims?

        • Pax Humana

          He can not tell you who “they” are, but we already KNOW who they are and they are Lucifer and his metaphysical, human, and hybrid minions that promote evil things and that Matthew is also probably among their ranks and that he has been sent as a scout and as a source of distraction to let the Illuminati and their subordinate organizations and subdivisions know just how strong that the resistance of REAL Christians and REAL Jews are that are TRUE to their faith in YAHWEH EL ELOHIM in their lives.

      • James Grimes

        Please enlighten us to what they are. I’m interested in hearing some facts.

        • Neiman

          I am convinced that in nearly everything in this life, Satan by his many wiles, by his lies, by his use of things like casting doubts on God’s Word, is engaged in the most merciless attack in all human history on the very existence of God. Whether it be by the homosexual community’s attacks on marriage and whether or not that conduct is a sin, via evolution or a myriad of other avenues, he is succeeding, as we know he would, in casting such doubts in the minds of people that they harvest of souls is greatly reduced and our brothers and sisters in Christ are in danger of falling back.

          As children of God, we must stand against his lies.

    • Elemental Brain

      Or, they are saying God is a poet, who wrote a poetic book.

      • Pax Humana

        …or I can say that you are a moron that wants to troll websites and promote your 419 scam as a legitimate source of information when even a child would be smart enough to tell you that it could not happen in the first place.

    Romans 1:20-32 sums it up entirely…the downward spiral that happens when you deny the Creator. This shows not only what happened to people in the past, but what is happening to our world now.

    20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly
    seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal
    power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
    21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were
    thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart
    was darkened.
    22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
    23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to
    corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping
    things.
    24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own
    hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:
    25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the
    creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
    26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women
    did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
    27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in
    their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is
    unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error
    which was meet.
    28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave
    them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not
    convenient;
    29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness,
    maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity;
    whisperers,
    30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
    31 Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:
    32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are
    worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do
    them.

  • railhead

    This book may be good to shore up the faith of Christians, but in day to day soul winning (or “personal evangelism” as modernists like to call it) it’s the word of God that is going to change a person’s heart. I argued for days with an evolutionist only to have him admit finally that Christianity and creation were as valid a belief system as evolution…but he did not get saved–waste of time.

    The Bible says to avoid oppositions of science, falsely so called (1 Tim. 6:20). Later in life, I gave the gospel to a man at his door step and when he brought up evolution I ignored it and continued showing him the Bible. That man got saved.

    Not only that, but anyone who goes out giving the gospel to people knows that most people believe in God in some form or fashion, it’s just that 99% of people who believe in God believe they are going to heaven because they live a good life, including most people who go to Christian churches. That’s been the main enemy of the gospel since Cain brought his own fruits to God, and Adam tried to cover himself with fig leaves.

    • http://BibleGateway.com/ Revelation55

      Please indulge me in a few questions…

      1) The “man who was not saved” in your first paragraph – How do you know that he isn’t saved “Now”, and that maybe you “Planted The Seeds Of Salvation”, which, of course, need to grow??

      2) What is your definition of “Got Saved”?? – Did “YOU” save them?

      3) In your last paragraph you “imply” that “Living A Good Life” is a “BAD THING”.
      I say that because you said that “99% that believe that ARE ENEMIES OF THE GOSPEL”. – Surely you don’t “REALLY” believe what you posted there, do you?
      By “implication”, then, one would ASSUME it would be BETTER TO BE WICKED.
      Obviously, that would be the remaining “1%” that you’re talking about, who are NOT ENEMIES OF THE GOSPEL.

      Can you explain the “Anomalies” that you’ve laid out, please?

  • Ericzipp

    I have always marveled how in all languages and cultures the 7 days of the week are universal and they are named after the same heavenly bodies and the same deities/elementals are connected to them. All except Hebrew in which only a number is given to them. It seems to point out that at one time almost all the world had the same religion and culture. The culture and religion has lived on after the language was mixed at Babel.

      Well…I know of at least 3 days that are named after the following….., and, I believe they are named by the “Romans”….

      1) SATURDAY = Roman god of SATURN

      2) SUNDAY = Roman god MITHRAS. In Latin it’s called “SOL” – like “SOLAR”.

      3) MONDAY = Roman god of the MOON. In Latin it’s called “LUNE” – like “LUNAR”.

      You may also notice the “SOLA’S” that are Latin for the 5 Terms of CHRISTIAN SALVATION….Like “Sola Gratia” “Sola Fide” etc, etc, etc.

      >>> THE 5 SOLAS<<<< http://www.christianity.com/church/church-history/the-five-solas-of-the-protestant-reformation.html

      These are all based on the "SUN", which the Romans worshiped as MITHRAS.

    • http://BibleGateway.com/ Revelation55

      The Five Solas are:
      Sola Scriptura (“Scripture alone”): The Bible alone is our highest authority.
      Sola Fide (“faith alone”): We are saved through faith alone in Jesus Christ.
      Sola Gratia (“grace alone”): We are saved by the grace of God alone.
      Solus Christus (“Christ alone”): Jesus Christ alone is our Lord, Savior, and King.
      Soli Deo Gloria (“to the glory of God alone”): We live for the glory of God alone.

    • http://BibleGateway.com/ Revelation55

      The Five Solas are:

      Sola Scriptura (“Scripture alone”): The Bible alone is our highest authority.

      Sola Fide (“faith alone”): We are saved through faith alone in Jesus Christ.

      Sola Gratia (“grace alone”): We are saved by the grace of God alone.

      Solus Christus (“Christ alone”): Jesus Christ alone is our Lord, Savior, and King.

      Soli Deo Gloria (“to the glory of God alone”): We live for the glory of God alone.

      Let’s have a brief look at each of these five points.

      SOLA SCRIPTURA

      The Scriptures are our ultimate and trustworthy authority for faith and practice. This doesn’t mean that the Bible is the only place where truth is found, but it does mean that everything else we learn about God and his world, and all other authorities, should be interpreted in light of Scripture. The Bible gives us everything we need for our theology.

      Every word of the 66 books of the Bible is inspired by God’s Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit also helps us to understand and obey Scripture.

      2 Peter 2:20, the Bible is about Jesus Christ and his role as God and Savior. Additionally, Romans 15:4 is 2 Timothy 2:16.

      SOLA FIDE AND SOLA GRATIA

      We are saved solely through faith in Jesus Christ because of God’s grace and Christ’s merit alone. We are not saved by our merits or declared righteous by our good works. God grants salvation not because of the good things we do, and despite our sin.

      As humans, we inherited (from our ancestor Adam) a nature that is enslaved to sin. Because of our nature, we are naturally enemies of God and lovers of evil. We need to be made alive (regenerated) so that we can even have faith in Christ. God graciously chooses to give us new hearts so that we trust in Christ and are saved through faith alone.

      God graciously preserves us and keeps us. When we are faithless toward him, he is still faithful.

      We can only stand before God by his grace as he mercifully attributes to us the righteousness of Jesus Christ and attributes to him the consequences of our sins. Jesus’ life of perfect righteousness is counted as ours, and our records of sin and failure were counted to Jesus when he died on the cross.

      Sola fide and sola gratia express the teaching of Ephesians 2:8:

      “For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.”

      SOLUS CHRISTUS

      God has given the ultimate revelation of himself to us by sending Jesus Christ, Colossians 1:15. Only through God’s gracious self-revelation in Jesus do we come to a saving and transforming knowledge of God.

      1 Timothy 1:5. Because God is holy and all humans are sinful and sinners, 1 John 1:1 Hebrews 7:25 Romans 8:34. Neither religious rituals nor good works mediate between us and God. Acts 4:12 by which a person can be saved other than the name of Jesus. Hebrews 7:23, and his sacrificial death alone can atone for sin.

      SOLI DEO GLORIA

      Glory belongs to God alone. God’s glory is the central motivation for salvation, not improving the lives of people—though that is a wonderful by product. God is not a means to an end—he is the means and the end.

      The goal of all of life is to give glory to God alone: “Whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God” (1 Corinthians 10:31). As The Westminster Catechism says, the chief purpose of human life is “to glorify God and enjoy him forever.”

    Scripture also affirms natural revelation. The Bible says nothing about a “6,000 year old earth” and we should not put our words in the mouth of God–that is something that really destroys credibility. See links at end to Augustine and R.C. Sproul on natural revelation: http://textsincontext.wordpress.com/2012/05/03/creation-young-earth-ham-nye-genesis-one/

      • James Grimes

        You are less than half the man that R.C. Sproul is. He has accomplished more in his 75 years than 90% of the people living today. Making a statement such as you did makes you look small and insignificant. Have you ever listened and learned from him? Most likely not.

        • Pax Humana

          Are you done? Mr. Sproul, and you, are less than half of the man that I am and not even a minute fraction of what YAHWEH EL ELOHIM is, and I HAVE heard what Mr. Sproul has said before and some of the things that he said are NOT in line with the Holy Scriptures, so know your role and shut your pie hole, you jabroni! You both claim that you are big people and that you are significant, but the Holy Scriptures say that this is NOT the case for you two and that also means that you BOTH have spirits of arrogance and pride in your lives and that you two would do well to repent of such wickedness in your hearts, minds, and lives. The Holy Scriptures say for me to expose false teachers and Mr. Sproul IS one, whether you like to hear it or not, you servant of Lucifer. Argue otherwise and you will be confronted by NUMEROUS parts of the Holy Scriptures, period, full stop!

        • Pax Humana

          I do not care HOW many years he did what, for what that man, and YOU, as well as myself, for that matter, will ALL have to be around for the Great Judgment of Humankind and YAHWEH EL ELOHIM will be impressed with NONE of those accomplishments in His Sight, let alone YOUR accomplishments OR mine in my life. So what, sir? The question is did he teach not just from the Holy Scriptures, but did he do it RIGHTLY in the Sight of YAHWEH EL ELOHIM. The evidence, at least from the Holy Scriptures, is a resounding NO, so, no, I am not just casually judging him, or, if you want to hold on to your human made misinterpretation of Christians and Jews should not judge their fellow human beings, for the Holy Scriptures themselves condemn that man as a false teacher as well as one that is promoting the current apostasy that is within modern Christianity and Judaism! Furthermore, yes, I HAVE learned from him and what I learned from his is that he is NOT a humble person, he DOES NOT have a teachable spirit, and his doctrines, as well as himself, are in utter rebellion, sedition, treason, betrayal, and open warfare against YAHWEH EL ELOHIM. Finally, speaking of being small and insignificant, what he did, let alone what you and I do in our lives, will be seen as insignificant in comparison to the unlimited power of YAHWEH EL ELOHIM, so do not even THINK that you can be a better man than myself and certainly do NOT falsely praise a false teacher like him in a sense of idolatry and witchcraft, which violates the Holy Scriptures in a myriad of ways in your life, sir!

      The “Time Of ADAM” to today has been “6,000 years”.
      If you read all the “Begots”, you would’ve known that.

      Is God a Divine Deceiver? Did God Who claims to be a God of Love and more importantly a loving Father, deliberately, without having any concern for what His children believed, allow us for many millennia to believe, by His own words therein, that He created all things in six literal days, while all the time He actually meant it took many billions of years? That would make Him guilty of abusing His children, of allowing them to believe a lie – is that what God is to you, a liar?

      When He finished talking about His Creation, God said, “31 And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day. He said He created it all in six days.

      There are many that would vainly assert that a thousands years is like but a day unto the Lord, thus “day” could have meant an indeterminate period of time, perhaps billions of years. Yet, when He spoke of the Sun to rule the day and the moon to rule the night (Sun/Moon cycle), “5 And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.” surely that to any thinking man would mean a roughly 24 day just as we measure it now.

      Now unless we do damage to the plain words and I mean by that words He defined, like “day,” what possible warrant do we have to change that word into meaning some indeterminate period of time? Surely, He had to know that His children would accept His words as meaning normal 24 days as we do now and we would stand thus upon His word. Yet, despite Him defining what “day” meant by the division of one Sun and one Moon cycle and Him knowing we would take Him literally, unless somewhere else in Scripture we can find amplification of some sort, then if you are right, God deliberately deceived or allowed His children to be deceived. Yet, as God would have no motive to lie and if He loved His children He would never allow them to be so deceived, the answer must lie elsewhere.

      Thus unless you are ready to call God a Deceiver and a child abuser, one must either accept His word as delivered and as He defined certain words like “day,” or in the last analysis we must declare God to be a liar and to deny His very existence. That is how eternally important Genesis One is to our faith, if the foundation, the very beginning is a lie, then it is all a lie. If He allowed His children to be so long deceived, on what basis can we possibly justify believing even the Gospel of Salvation? If God lied or deceived us in one thing, He is not worthy of our trust as touching any other matter under heaven.

      Are you ready to declare God a Liar and to be dead?

    • John_33

      Of course the Bible doesn’t talk about a 6,000 year old earth — it wasn’t 6,000 years old when He wrote it, but God does give us a timeline. In Genesis 1:1, it tells us that time was created when God said “In the beginning.” Genesis 1:5 concludes the first day. As a result, there’s no possible way that a gap can fit between verses 1-2 since verses 1-5 are part of Day 1. If there was a gap, then Day 1 would be extremely long and the other days would be short, which would contradict the text. Many people have tried to force various secular interpretations onto the Bible. It may sound right now, but it will be proven wrong later, and the proponents of such secular interpretations will look foolish. It’s far better to just take God at His Word and believe what He says regardless of what man claims.

  • James Grimes

    The Useless are going to cry “Foul!” on this one.

  • http://BibleGateway.com/ Revelation55

    I believe in “Creation”.

    However, I also believe that the “Secrets Of God” are being hidden from us purposely, and, that there is a “Veil” over all of our eyes….a “Shroud” so to speak.

    This “Veil” is not just limited to what we can “See” on Earth. It also “Prevents” us from breaking out of our “PRISON”, which is, and has always been, limited to our own “GALAXY”.

    To be more “precise”…..we have yet to venture past our own “Solar System”.

    Well, maybe our “Machines” have – But, WE HAVEN’T.

    Doesn’t anyone question why it is so virtually IMPOSSIBLE for us to leave our own “Solar System”??

    Why we can’t get up enough “Speed” to break the “SPEED OF LIGHT”?

    Yet, we’ve “Broken The Sound BARRIER”….and that’s just what these things are “BARRIERS”…..but, they are also PRISONS & BLINDERS.

    I will present what is believed to BE A “FACT”…..

    We already “KNOW” the “STARS” we “see” at night, and we know that MOST OF THEM ARE “ALREADY DEAD”……..Yet, WE STILL SEE THEM. – “Why”???

    The “scientific answer is” because they are so far away that the LIGHT IS JUST NOW REACHING US……sounds “reasonable”.

    But, what PROOF do we actually have that those STARS ARE DEAD??

    NONE.

    It’s all based on an ASSUMPTION.

    We don’t know which stars are DEAD, and which stars are ALIVE – do we??

    It’s all a “MATHEMATICAL ASSUMPTION”.

    Math is supposed to be “FLAWLESS”, yet, they still CAN’T SOLVE “QUANTUM PHYSICS”…..which is simply; “WHEN WE LOOK AT SOMETHING – IT CHANGES”.

    However, if we DON’T LOOK at it, then IT DOESN’T CHANGE…..how’s that for ODD?

    I propose the SAME THING happens when we LOOK AT THE STARS – “IT CHANGES”.

    How do I “Know that”??…..BECAUSE THEY ARE DEAD!!

    But, “when we look at them – they CHANGE”.

    They change to “BEING THERE” when we LOOK AT THEM.

    That’s “Quantum Physics”!!!

    So, it stands to “reason” then, that IF WE “DON’T” LOOK AT THE STARS, THEN, THEY AREN’T REALLY THERE……because THEY ARE DEAD.

    What does this mean to ME?.

    It means that WE ARE ONLY “SEEING WHAT WE ARE ALLOWED TO SEE”!!!

    We have NO CONTROL of “How We See Things”…….THAT’S QUANTUM PHYSICS!!

    I further propose that “WHAT WE SEE ISN’T THERE AT ALL”!!!.

    “Why”?

    Because we “LOOKED AT IT”……that’s “REVERSE” QUANTUM PHYSICS, which DELUDES us into thinking “WE SEE SOMETHING”, but it’s NOT THERE.

    “Why”?

    BECAUSE THE STAR IS DEAD!!

    So, that could only mean THAT WHAT WE SEE IS AN “ILLUSION”.

    And, we’ve FOOLED OURSELVES into believing that IT’S THERE, and, we’ve CREATED A MATHEMATICAL REASON to “Back That Up”……knowing FULLY WELL, that the STAR IS DEAD.

    So, we’ve SEEN AN ILLUSION, and, the only way to EXPLAIN IT is to “CREATE” a “Mathematical Explanation” to reinforce our ILLUSION.

    What’s my point?

    My point is SIMPLE.

    The ENTIRE HEAVENS “isn’t Real”…..it’s a SHROUD & PRISON that GOD HAS US IN, and, we cannot ESCAPE IT.

    When we are “REBORN & RESURRECTED” God will REMOVE THE SHROUD, AND THEN WE WILL SEE WHAT IS “REALLY THERE”.

    That’s when we will see THE NEW HEAVENS & NEW EARTH, which has been here the entire time – WE JUST CAN’T SEE IT YET.

    Job 19:8
    He has blocked my way so I cannot pass; he has shrouded my paths in darkness.

    Job 40:13
    Bury them all in the dust together; shroud their faces in the grave.

    Ecclesiastes 6:4
    It comes without meaning, it departs in darkness, and in darkness its name is shrouded.

    Isaiah 25:7
    On this mountain he will destroy the shroud that enfolds all peoples, the sheet that covers all nations;

    ISN’T IT CLEAR TO YOU THAT GOD HAS A “SHROUD OVER OUR EYES”???
    And what we “Think We See”, isn’t really there, and, what’s “Really There”, we cannot see!!

    At least NOT YET.

    • Neiman

      What does all of that have to do with the subject of this thread?

      Yes, God tells us that here we only see partially as if through a dark glass, but there we shall see things as they really are face to face.

      But, I still do not see how that applies to this thread.

      • http://BibleGateway.com/ Revelation55

        I will give you a Clue as to what it “applies” to, okay NEIMAN??

        It means that all the so-called “Scholars”, as well as the “Theologians”, as well as all the “Sermons From The Pulpits”, and, especially all the “Religions” don’t mean NOTHING.

        All they do is “take our eyes off the real matter at hand”.

        In order to “GRASP” a Miracle, which actually is “Faith”, you first have to “Believe In The POSSIBILITY” that what we “Perceive” isn’t necessarily actually “WHAT IS”.
        The same “applies” in Reverse…..What we “Don’t See, or Perceive” actually “IS” the “Reality”.

        In other words…..all we are, and have been doing, for thousands of years is simply FOOLING OURSELVES. And, we’ve been doing it so long that to us it has “Become Our Reality”, because that’s what we are BRAINWASHED TO BELIEVE.

        Obviously…..you missed the entire POINT, otherwise, you wouldn’t have asked such a question.
        Instead, you rely on the “MORE TRADITIONAL” ways of obtaining “Knowledge”, which I believe is all a DELUSION.

        It’s quite “Humbling” to realize that WE KNOW NOTHING, and all we’ve been doing is “Feeding Our Heads” with the ILLUSION of having KNOWLEDGE & BELIEF is something that DOESN’T EXIST, except in our “Minds”….and, that what ACTUALLY EXISTS we are INCAPABLE OF SEEING, OR BELIEVING…….Yet, it’s THERE none the less.

        Much Like Faith – “Believing in something you cannot see, but, you know exists”.

        So, throw out the BOOKS (Except The Bible), and ACCEPT WHAT GOD HAS BEEN TELLING US FOR 3,500 YEARS.
        And that is;…..”GOD IS RUNNING THIS SHOW”.

        Do you get it yet??

          It amounts to nonsense, nonsensical ramblings without any point at all, except to YOU. ! I read it over and over and it is still nonsense.

            Guess what NEIMAN?

            I WASN’T WRITING IT TO “YOU”, WAS I??

            Of course it makes NO SENSE to YOU…..”YOU’VE SAID THAT TWICE NOW”, and TWICE YOU’VE COMMENTED ON SOMETHING YOU HAVE “NO CLUE” ABOUT WHAT IT MEANS.

            So….who is “not making sense”?
            “Me” for WRITING IT….or “You” for NOT UNDERSTANDING IT??

            Take a walk.

            LAST I LOOKED, I WAS “FREE” TO WRITE WHATEVER I WANTED.

            WHAT MAKES YOU THE “COMMENT POLICE SQUAD”???

            Does it INSULT YOU that you don’t know how to “MAKE SENSE OF IT”???

            IS THAT “MY PROBLEM”, OR YOURS???

          • Neiman

            I apologize, I said it was nonsensical ramblings, I was wrong, it is the nonsensical ramblings of a lunatic mind

            I FIND IT VERY INTERESTING THAT YOU USED THE WORD “NONSENSE” THREE TIMES THERE!!!!!!
            Do you feel like “You’re Not Being Heard”???

    We can debate until the cows come home. The fact is that the Word of God says, people will be offended and subsequently will become hateful. The Word of God also says many will fall away.

    One of the Atheists who is trolling this site to be disagreeable and to make hateful remarks has disparaged Dr. R.C. Sproul. I am taking classes at Reformation Bible College and started a new course tonight. The first lecture by Dr. Sproul was excellent and I was fully engaged for the entire time. I find R.C. to be an excellent teacher who fully develops and covers a topic. His lectures are highly recommended.

      R. C. Sproul is wrong and he is a servant of Lucifer, period, full stop.

    In the beginning God created the heavens and Earth. Now the earth was formless and empty and darkness was upon the face of the deep. God did not create the earth this way, it became that way. Also, Genesis 1 supports the possibility of evolution when it says, “Let the earth bring forth.” It’s time to get off the nonsense that everything took place in the past 6000 years, there’s no possible way it could have. Neither scripture nor science support a young earth.
