Readers of this blog know from following my Bible timeline studies that I believe in a literal interpretation of Genesis. I believe that when God said He made the world in 6 days He did just that. Some have problems with this but I do not. God, the true and living God, the self-existent I AM would not require even 6 days to do this and yet that is the time-frame that He chose for setting His creation in motion.
This is the God I worship because I believe Him when He said He created the world in 6 days. He was there and I was not. It's His testimony. I think there is a lot riding on God's credibility.
When He says that Jesus died, was buried, and was resurrected in order to pay the price for my sins because He loves me and desires to spend eternity with me I believe Him because there were witnesses. It's their testimonies recorded in the Bible. If I cannot believe what God says in Genesis, how can I believe what He says in the New Testament? Simple answer: I can't.
If God's Word is true then there should be science to support it. Everyone holds one of two world-views and the proponents of each examine the same evidence and then draw radically different conclusions. Most scientific documentaries are written from an old earth perspective.
Last week Pastor Dad and I had the privilege of seeing the premier of a documentary written from the Biblical perspective. We are not scientists, we - or rather, he - is a theologian, and I am a student of the Bible, but we both enjoyed the discussion and explanations between the host, Del Tackett, and the scientists from various fields as they examined the evidence and presented their case for a young earth.
