No it isn't... Yec is made up of a bunch of renegade or cult "so called" scientists that are trying promote this warped idea that the earth and the universe we know today is only a few thousand years old. This is a gross misinterpretation of the facts. And these young earth creationists are a very very small group of scientists, even too small to be taken seriously.
No it isn't. Yec is a term for young earth creation. It is a gross misrepresentation of facts to say the earth is old. Science can't go there at all. So scientists have nothing to do with it. They are stuck in the fishbowl. They only dream of the past, and have no clue if it was different or the same. They have simply assumed. Period.
Well the spiritual and physical can't contradict each other. There is NO problem with the science we know today. And if you took the time to study it you would actually find that it really supports what the Bible has been saying all along. And that is that God created everything...
No problem with it, that is right, long as it stays in the fishbowl of the present temporary state universe. Thus far, and no further. You shall not pass. I have no problem at all with science, just the silly so called science that is a myth, and tells tales of some same state past that never was.
I would be extremely careful what you are promoting. This silly literal 7 day interpretation of creation is causing many people who believe in the Bible to lose faith (when faced with the scientific facts) and prevents others (non-believers) from believing in the Bible and in God as well. Someone is going to have to answer to this...
They need lose no faith at all, no science facts can challenge it. The fact is, they have nothing to say about creation week, or the future. They can only tell us how it now works, and that is all well and good...now.
Are you serious? Not only do you have to understand the language of other cultures, you also have to understand their customs, mannerism, figures of speech, and expressions. It is a very complicated study.
Nonsense. A child could understand it, that is the way God had it written. It was well understood for generations. It is the people that felt they needed to apologize for God, and make His word fit man's wisdom, that thought they needed to bend it out of shape.
You just can't read a few words and then say "thus says the Lord" and then force it to fit into faith. As for the spiritual, my God says that this literal interpretation is wrong and that it is stifling his children from reaching him.
Your God ought to read the bible. You would both learn something. Start with an open mind, not an all consuming need to compromise with man's silly little wisdom.
No... Your logic and reasonings stems from centuries old interpretations of the Bible, starting with the KJV and other books when the translators had very weak scientific foundations. The problem is, this defect was fused into the teachings which now has shipwrecked hundreds of thousands of people's faith.
Thank you for demonstrating what I just said. That is your concern, man, and his wisdom. Try God, and His wisdom. It is higher. Much higher.
No it doesn't... Those simple word studies we showed you exposed those defects.
Not in the least way, is that remotely close to a distant relation to the truth.
The contortion came from those early English translators who then fused their present day science with the Bible. The crazy thing about it is, some of these present day evangelicals went along with it and thus corrupted it's meaning and corrupted others faith also.
Their understanding was right. They were moved by God, not science. Inspiration, not compromise.
What do you mean, so? You just can't cherry pick words from Genesis and then say here is what it means. We have to be careful with the word of God. We have to take all things into account... Things like where has this word been previously used, to whom it is written for, what is the context it was written, etc..
I didn't do anything like that. I took the Hebrew meaning, and it was day. The context was, by the mornings and evenings, and other things, a day, as we think of a day. As Jesus thought of a day. As God thought of a day, walking in the cool of the day in the garden. Give it up.
Do you know what speaks for God?
How do you know??
He told us, and Jesus told us, and it works.
Do you really care about all these people that look at the real scientific evidence and then compare them to what these "cult" so called yec scientists are saying? Again, someone is going to be held accountable for this...
Yes, the ones that bought into man's wisdom. They are without excuse. As I pointed out, science can't cover the bible past or future. Really. Get it?
