Vain Babblings

When I see the 1 Timothy 6:20: 20 O Timothy, keep that which is committed to thy trust, avoiding profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so called: The first thing that comes to mind is evolution. The fact that so many brilliant scientists can come to the conclusion that nothing created everything baffles me. I saw a quote on a meme floating around on email and Facebook which still makes me laugh. Atheism: The belief that there was once absolutely nothing. And nothing happened to the nothing until the nothing magically exploded for no reason, creating

Gap Theory Thoughts

The Gap Theory properly understood from the Bible would be that it’s an undetermined period of time that exists between Genesis 1:1 and 2. 1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. 2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. Those who hold to the gap theory state that “was” should have been translated as “became” as it is a transitive verb implying an action. From what we read in the Bible, that’s all

Canopy Theory

The hydro-plate theory and canopy theory are both alluded to in the verse: Gen 7:11 (KJV) 11 In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened The canopy theory states that there was a water vapor barrier above the atmosphere. Not all creationists agree on this theory, but it does seem to solve a few problems. The first being rain. Rain is not mentioned previous to the flood. God’s covenant

Scientific Discoveries the Bible Anticipated

There are mountains in the sea: Jonah 2 5-6. Oceanography is a fairly recent science and not really explored until the 20th century due to the fairly recent inventions of submarines and deep sea diving. Free diving can only take you so far before you come up for air. God created life according to it’s kind. This is what’s observed in nature and in the fossil record. There are no links between separate “kinds” of animals. No links between dogs and goats, no links between apes and humans. Space, Time, Matter and Energy. Genesis 1:1-3. In the first 3

Fabric of Space

The Law of Conservation of Energy states that energy cannot be created or destroyed. Therefore since there is energy it had to be created by a supernatural creator who is outside space\time. Most of what the average public knows about space is information that they’ve gotten through movies and TV which is that space is an empty vacuum. Other than the scientific proof for the additional dimensions in space which is backed up by string theory and is in line with what the Bible says about space, the most fascinating thing is zero point energy. Zero Point energy was

PI E and the Bible

Hebrew letters and Greek letters each have a value. When you look at Genesis 1:1 and take the (number of the letters x the product of the letters) \ (the number of the words x the product of the words) you will get pi: 3.1416. When you do the same thing in John 1:1 you will get e: 2.17183. Both pi and e are very significant in mathematics. Pi with calculating in circles and e with wave mechanics, electrical theory and other advanced math. This is one of the many things that show that the Bible isn’t just a

Rephaim “…Also After That”

The key point to the phrase “also after that” in Genesis 6:4 is that there were Nephlim after the flood, only to a lesser degree. Prior to the flood the fallen angels corrupted the DNA of the human race except for Enoch who was raptured prior to the flood and all of Noah’s family. This is what the key phrase “perfect in his generations” refers to. After the flood there were 400 years available to Satan to lay down a challenge to the Israelites to inheriting the promised land. This is predicted in: Gen 15:13 (KJV) 13 And he

God’s Everlasting Covenant to Abraham

God’s everlasting covenant to Abraham is started in Genesis 12. 2 And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: 3 And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed. Gen 12:2-3 (KJV) God promises to make of Abraham a great nation, bless Abraham and make is name great, make Abraham a blessing, bless those that bless Abraham and curse those that curse Abraham. All of the

Where Did Israel Begin?

Israel began as the “Seed of a Woman” in Genesis 3:15. Then to the call of Abraham (Gen 12) through the tribe of Judah (Gen 49),. Jacob’s family went into Egypt as a family and came out as a nation in Exodus 4. Israel’s went through the dynasty of King David in (I Samuel 7) and Jesus, the future King to sit on David’s throne came through the virgin birth in Isaiah 7:14. The thing that affects the geopolitical and sociological horizon is who the son of promise is. Isaac is the son of promise. Gen 22:2 (KJV) And

Three Fallacies Of Evolution

The second law of thermodynamics states: “in all energy exchanges, if no energy enters or leaves the system, the potential energy of the state will always be less than that of the initial state” This means that unless you put in energy to a system, that system will move from order to disorder, from design to randomness. Evolution as proposed is the idea that everything is evolving from a simple state to a complex state without adding energy. This simply contradicts the Entropy law. The second fallacy is the use of digital languages. To borrow a quote from the

Why Were Ancient Cultures Afraid Of Mars

You will have a vastly different view of this question whether your are a uniformitarian which is assuming the things we see and observe have always been the same way, or a catastrophist which is the theory that Earth and the galaxy is the product of short lived catastrophic events. From everything we observe, I think theres conclusive evidence that Earth has been shaped by catastrophic events such as meteor strikes, the Global Flood etc… Looking up in the night sky in our current space age, it’s difficult to pick out the planet Mars and no reason to fear

What Did Lot See, What Are The Spiritual Insights

Gen 13:10 (KJV) And Lot lifted up his eyes, and beheld all the plain of Jordan,… 12 Abram dwelled in the land of Canaan, and Lot dwelled in the cities of the plain, and pitched his tent toward Sodom. 13 But the men of Sodom were wicked and sinners before the Lord exceedingly. Gen 13:12-13 (KJV) Lot set himself up in a position to be tempted by the sinfulness that was occurring in the cities of the plain. Particularly by setting his tent in a position toward Sodom, lot would have seen what was going on in that city

What is a Covenant

A covenant according to Strongs comes from the word bĕriyth (1285) which means: covenant, alliance, pledge, treaty, alliance, constitution. In simple terms a covenant is a promise from God. It is a binding agreement in legal terms. The word bĕriyth comes from a root word that means “to cut”. The custom at the time was for cutting or dividing animals into two parts with the two parties or people walking between the two parts in a “figure 8” fashion. The suggestion behind this is if one of the parties breaks his covenant he is in essence saying “may I

Evolution Fallacies

There are many fallacies that are used by evolutionists and theistic evolutionists. In general conversation friends and acquaintances generally use the same arguments that they hear from TV documentaries, movies and articles. They are not scientists themselves. Some common fallacies they use are: Humor or Ridicule This is where a sly comment or insult distracts from the argument. Commonly ridiculing a young earth creation position based in the Bible is not an argument or a reasoned response. This is also an Ad Hominem which is an argument directed at the person, not the claim. This generally leads into Appeal

Apologetics / General / Genesis

Logic in the Bible

To look at this question we have to look at where the idea of allegorizing scripture starts. This is the book of Genesis. Turning Genesis into allegory is the start down the path of turning other parts of the Bible that seem difficult to allegory. The issues brought up in Genesis such as God creating the universe in 6 days are not only in Genesis but it’s mentioned all through the entire Bible, New and Old Testaments. A Hypothetical Syllogism is an if-then statement. If this, then that. If the Bible is the Word of God, then it is
