The Universe Is Thousands And Not Millions Of Years Old

Many Bible-believing Christians struggle with the question of whether the earth we occupy today is old, meaning millions of years old, or is it young, only around 6,000 years old. Did God create the earth from the beginning in 6 days or did he create it and allow it to evolve over millions of years, only to destroy it and re-create it in the Genesis account of 6 days. To truly understand the Bible, we need to understand how it all began and how our world that we see today, changed dramatically during the great flood.

We are excited to introduce to you a fascinating and extended study titled…
Beyond Is Genesis History?
Rocks & Fossils
First you will want to watch the original documentary…
Is Genesis History?
to discover what the Earth and the Bible teaches us about how the world was created and how it changed during that great flood. Learn from more than a dozen scientists and scholars as they explore the world around us in light of Genesis, and explain how the world intersects with Genesis. From rock layers to fossils, to lions and stars, this amazing film will change the way you see the world.

A fascinating new look at the biblical, historical, and scientific evidence for Creation and the Flood. The goal of the film is to provide a positive case for Creation in six normal days, a real Adam and Eve, a global flood, and a tower of Babel. Dr. Del Tackett, the creator of “The Truth Project,” serves as your guide—hiking through canyons, climbing up mountains, and diving below the sea—in an exploration of two competing views … one compelling truth.

Dr. Kurt Wise Ph.D. is a Paleontologist who teaches us that from an early age, we are taught in schools that conventional science is knowledge and that knowledge is the truth. We see Christians all over the world and down through the ages that have associated conventional science with something that you can prove, but it’s just not true. We have some educated guesses called theories, but you never know for sure if a theory is true. Many Christians close their minds and their hearts to what God has put into the creation of the earth, very evidently, to teach us about Himself and to confirm what He has claimed in His Word. When we worship conventional science, we turn away from the source of real truth.

Beyond Is Genesis History?
Rocks & Fossils
is designed to give you a better understanding of the impact of the global flood on the Earth. It explores the disciplines of geology, paleontology, and atmospheric science through interviews with Dr. Del Tackett and six scientists from the original film.

On May 18, 1980, a catastrophic geologic event occurred that not only shocked the world with its explosive power, but it challenged the way we think about the origin of the earth and its very foundation. That 9-hour event was the eruption of Mount St. Helens in Washington, over 38 years ago. Major changes occurred in the mountains, rivers and surrounding landscape.

Geologist, Steve Austin, Ph.D. provides an overview of the explosion that occurred that day and the subsequent mudflows as a result of the explosion. He explains how the results relate to the creation of the earth and how geologic processes associated with the volcano and its aftermath can teach us about even larger catastrophic processes that occurred during the global Flood. He explains how the present catastrophic event of Mount St. Helens is not only the key to the past, but it helps us understand the catastrophic formations elsewhere on the earth.

You will see how the surrounding canyon formed in a day, yet as you look at the geological formations in the area, it appears to have taken thousands, even millions of years to form. This one major event is further proof of how our current day earth was formed during the great flood. By studying the events of Mount St. Helens, you see the amazing effects of the power of water to erode a landscape in a very short amount of time. He takes you to the Grand Canyon to once again prove the great Flood carved out the massive canyons and not the Colorado River over millions of years, as taught today in conventional science.

Marcus Ross Ph.D. is a Paleontologist that teaches us that in 2nd Peter, Peter tells us that God formed the earth by water and through water. It was as if God was using the actions of water in the very beginning. In day one of creation week, we find that God says in Genesis 1:1,2, “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. 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.” The earth at this point was basically a watery ball of mush that had not yet been organized into something that could support life. Day two, God separates the waters, so now we have a distinction between atmospheric water and water on the earth itself. Day three, God pulls the land up out of the waters in order to create the oceans and continents. Genesis 1:10, “And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas:” 2 Peter reminds us that God created the earth using water and with those waters, the world was later destroyed in the great flood. During the flood the world was brought back to the same state as it was at the beginning of creation. A watery ball of unformedness with chaos going on underneath as animals were being destroyed and buried and turned into fossils. But, that was the whole point. God was resetting the world using Noah as a representative of the human race and preserving the animals. God was not in the business of re-creating the world. Ross explains exactly how the fossils were formed and how long it took for this to occur.

Larry Vardiman Ph.D. is an Atmospheric Scientist who will take you to Mt. Baker in Washington to explain the Ice Age and Climate Change. As a creationist, he applies the Bible to his science. He explains how the global flood set up the unique conditions necessary for an ice age to occur. He also discusses climate change and the reliability of ice core dating. He reminds us that conventional science believes in millions of years, known as the Milankovich Theory, but what supposedly occurred during the conventional Ice Age and is just not possible according to the data shown.
His discoveries are fascinating!

Art Chadwick shows Del Tackett his collection of over 20,000 fossils gathered from Hanson Ranch. Art explains how fossils are formed and how they change from the top to the bottom of the Mesozoic rock layers. He explains how various aspects of the fossil record – including dinosaur footprints, death postures, and dinosaur eggs, fit with the idea of a global flood.

This documentary is over 6 ½ hours long in 20 in-depth fascinating studies that will take you to Mount St. Helens, through the wilderness and the Grand Canyon. You will visit Mt. Baker in Washington to learn when and how the Ice Age happened. You will also visit the Natural History Museum and a fossil repository in Texas. See for yourself the evidence for a Young Earth!
Discover how the world was created in the beginning and what it was like before God destroyed it in the great flood. You will be shocked to learn how the world was totally reshaped quickly by that great flood and each expert in their field proves how that happened. This is the most powerful and fascinating documentary you will ever witness to show you why the earth teaches us that the Bible is true and not conventional science. Discover the evidence that supports the Genesis story of 6-literal days of creation.

Both films are truly amazing!
You will never believe the earth is millions of years old again!

Each film can be purchased separately!

Instantaneous Creation Ex Nihilo

There is a great divide between those who claim to believe in the Bible and those who really do.  I often speak with people who say they believe in the inerrancy of the holy scriptures, and then after a mere superficial chit chat, I find they do not believe in all of the Word.  I would suggest that one great litmus test would be an Instantaneous Creation, that is: Ex Nihilo- out of nothing.  God simply spoke the universe into existence instantly, and made it out of absolutely nothing.  And guess what?  He did not even use His baby finger.  You think about that.  The Lord is totally awesome, beyond our comprehension, and trillions of light years beyond us in His perfect power, wisdom and understanding of all things.

Hebrews 11:3 King James Version (KJV)
“Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.”

Instantaneous Creation
BY HENRY M. MORRIS, PH.D. | THURSDAY, MAY 03, 2018

“Let them praise the name of the LORD: for he commanded, and they were created.” (Psalm 148:5)

The concept of “fiat creation” is opposed by evolutionists and all who believe in the so-called geologic ages. Nevertheless, this is clearly the teaching of the Word of God, and God was there! Psalm 148 exhorts all the stars to praise the Lord, and then notes that, as soon as God spoke, they “were created.” Similarly, “by the word of the LORD were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth. . . . For he spake, and it was done; he commanded, and it stood fast” (Psalm 33:6, 9).

It is worth noting that whenever the verbs “create” and “make” are used in reference to God’s work of creation, they are never in the present tense. God is not now creating or making stars or animals or people as theistic evolution requires; at the end of the six-day creation period, in fact, God “rested from all his work which God created and made” (Genesis 2:3).

This is the teaching of the New Testament also. “The worlds [that is, the space/time cosmos, the ‘aeons’] were framed [not ‘are being framed’] by the word of God [not ‘by processes of stellar evolution’], so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear [not ‘out of pre-existing materials,’ as required by theories of chemical and cosmic evolution]” (Hebrews 11:3).

The Lord Jesus Christ Himself confirmed the doctrine of recent creation. “From the beginning of the creation [not, that is, four billion years after the solar system evolved] God made them [Adam and Eve] male and female” (Mark 10:6). Thus, those who believe in the geologic ages are rejecting both the biblical record and the authority of Jesus Christ in order to attain ephemeral acceptance by the ungodly. This is a poor exchange!

The Bible Reveals The Hydrologic Cycle Thousands Of Years In Advance Of Modern Science

The Bible and TRUE science have always been in total harmony.  Although the Bible is not solely a book on science per say, whenever scientific principles are brought up in the Bible, there is never a contradiction.  The only exception that I can think of, are the miracles that God has performed, whereas He breaks His own laws, such as Jesus walking on water, the parting of the Red Sea, the ax head floating, and a myriad of others.  Enjoy the following article which graphically describes the Biblical narrative of the earth’s hydrologic cycle, written thousands of years before scientists understood it.  In His Service, Pastor Steve  <><

 

DAYS OF PRAISE DAYS OF PRAISE
The Rivers and the Sea
BY HENRY M. MORRIS, PH.D. | MONDAY, APRIL 09, 2018

“All the rivers run into the sea; yet the sea is not full; unto the place from whence the rivers come, thither they return again.” (Ecclesiastes 1:7)

As the ancients observed the mighty Nile and Euphrates and other great rivers flowing into the ocean, they could not help but wonder why the sea level never rose. They knew that many of the waters in the rivers came from rainfall, especially during floods, but they had only quaint notions, at best, as to where the rains originated. Not until the days of modern science did men discover that rainfall actually comes from the oceans via evaporation and atmospheric transportation.

But the Bible writers somehow seemed to know about the true nature of the hydrologic cycle thousands of years in advance of modern science. The rivers come from the same place to which they return—that is, the sea.

But how do the waters of the sea ever rise into the sky? “He maketh small the drops of water: they pour down rain according to the vapour thereof: Which the clouds do drop and distill upon man abundantly” (Job 36:27-28). Water droplets are made very small by the process of evaporation so they can be carried aloft by the up-rushing air forces over warm waters; later they “distill upon man abundantly.”

There are other references in Scripture to different phases of this great hydrologic cycle, but one of the most significant is Isaiah 55:10-11: “For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth. . . . So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please.” The waters return to the skies only after doing their good work on the lands. Just so, the life-giving Word of God returns to Him, not void, but full of the spiritual fruit for which He sent it. HMM

Teaching Stones

Days of Praise

Teaching Stones
by Henry M. Morris, Ph.D. | Jan. 18, 2018

“Woe unto him that saith to the wood, Awake; to the dumb stone, Arise, it shall teach! Behold, it is laid over with gold and silver, and there is no breath at all in the midst of it.” (Habakkuk 2:19)
How foolish are those who worship idols—objects of wood and stone with no life in them, not even when they are adorned in silver and gold. Can inanimate objects come to life and even become teachers? A child knows better.
But not college professors! All over the land, these proud purveyors of “science falsely so called” are indoctrinating young minds with the absurd belief that inorganic substances can somehow first become simple living substances and then eventually organize themselves all the way up to being people. They would not, of course, suggest that sticks and stones could suddenly become human (neither did the ancient idolaters, for that matter). They just believe that time—lots of it—can magically develop people out of much simpler substances than even these ancient philosophers ever imagined. “In the beginning, hydrogen” is their arrogant notion.
But God will not be mocked in this way forever. Life can only come from life—ultimately from the living God! The wooden idol of the pagan is every bit as scientific as the evolutionary models of the modern intellectual; neither one can create life. “Their idols are silver and gold, the work of men’s hands. They have mouths, but they speak not: eyes have they, but they see not: . . . They that make them are like unto them; so is every one that trusteth in them” (Psalm 115:4-5, 8).
Only God can create life, and He can even cause stones to teach. “Speak to the earth, and it shall teach thee: . . . Who knoweth not in all these that the hand of the LORD hath wrought this?” (Job 12:8-9). HMM

****************************************

The foolishness of evolution and idol worship knows no bounds.  It takes a stubborn, strong willed, Antichrist spirit to believe that no one plus nothing, and a whole lot of time made everything.  Likewise, the folly of idol worship is also off the charts.  Since the fall in the garden, man has taken to worshipping the creation rather than the Creator.  I cannot help but remember the rebellious Israelites in the wilderness, when Moses climbed Mount Horeb.

Exodus 32:24  King James Version (KJV)
24 And I said unto them, Whosoever hath any gold, let them break it off. So they gave it me: then I cast it into the fire, and there came out this calf.

We would laugh at the last five highlighted words from this scriptural text if they were not so sad.

Christ The Creationist

The Bible is full of affirmations for a recent creation, if one properly reads, exegetes, and believes in it!  Both Old and New Testaments confirm this fact to be true.  Jesus Christ also validates this often, and a couple more of His references are cited below, in the devotional “Days Of Praise” from the Institute For Creation Research.  This article was written by their founder, Dr. Henry M. Morris:

Christ the Creationist
by Henry M. Morris, Ph.D. | Oct. 5, 2017
“For in those days shall be affliction, such as was not from the beginning of the creation which God created unto this time, neither shall be.” (Mark 13:19)
In predicting a future judgment on the unbelieving world, the Lord Jesus referred to “the beginning of the creation which God created,” thus affirming the biblical doctrine of supernatural, sudden creation. In the pagan world of His day, evolutionism was dominant almost everywhere. The Epicureans, for example, were atheistic evolutionists. The Stoics, Gnostics, Platonists, and others were pantheistic evolutionists. None of the extra-biblical philosophers of His day believed in a God who had created all things, including even the universe itself.
But Christ was a creationist, and the much-maligned “scientific creationists” of today are following His example and teaching. He even believed in recent creation, for He said (speaking of Adam and Eve) that “from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female” (Mark 10:6). The pagans all believed in an eternal cosmos, but Jesus said it had a beginning and that man and woman were a part of that beginning creation, following which “the sabbath was made for man” (Mark 2:27).
He also believed that the “two accounts” of creation (Genesis 1 and 2) were complementary, not contradictory, for He quoted from both in the same context. “Have ye not read,” He said, “that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female [Genesis 1], And said For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh? [Genesis 2]” (Matthew 19:4-6).
There may be some Christians who are evolutionists, but there is no such thing as “Christian evolution,” for Christ was a creationist! HMM

Massive Full-Scale Version of Noah’s Ark Comes to Life in Kentucky

 

 

There might not be a flood of biblical proportions in the forecast, but Noah’s Ark is coming to Williamstown, Kentucky, this summer.

Massive Full-Size Version of Noah's Ark Comes to Life in Kentucky

A full-size version of Noah’s Ark is expected to be completed before Ark Encounter, a Bible-themed park, opens July 7.

Ken Ham had the massive ship built to match the dimensions set out in the Bible. The entire project is expected to cost $100 million.

“The message that we have — it’s making the Bible come alive, really. By building Noah’s Ark, we’re saying, ‘This really happened. This is plausible,'” Ham told “Nightline.”

According to Ham, his ark is 510 feet long, 85 feet wide and 51 feet high. “It gets bigger and bigger. When you get inside, it gets bigger again,” he said.

Ark Encounter is just a few miles from Ham’s Creation Museum, which attracts nearly half a million visitors a year and teaches a young Earth theory of creation. Ham calls his ministry Answers in Genesis.

“We have a lot of people who are not Christians who come here, and they appreciate the way it’s presented. It’s presented very tastefully,” said Ham. “It’s educational.”

Visitors to the Creation Museum can find exhibits like Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, which is next to one showing dinosaurs playfully eating fruit.

One of Ham’s biggest critics is Bill Nye, an evolutionist who is known as the television personality the Science Guy. He dismissed Ham’s creationist exhibits as biblical propaganda. Nye said dinosaurs died out long before human beings ever came along.

“I can prove that beyond any reasonable doubt. That is what’s very troubling. Allosauruses and humans did not live at the same time. Teaching the earth is 6,000 years old is completely wrong and inappropriate,” he told “Nightline.”

“When they dig up dinosaur bones, they don’t dig them up with labels on saying, ‘Hi, I’m 70 million years old,’ or whatever it is,” Ham said. “We’re saying that most of those bones they dig up are actually from the flood of Noah’s day, not from millions of years ago.”

Ham rejected mainstream science institutions as evolutionary doctrinaires.

“Museums like the Natural History Museum inWashington, D.C., Smithsonian or Chicago Field Museum, mostly they teach that we supposedly evolved [from] apelike creatures. Why shouldn’t we be able to use the same technology and really challenge people to consider the Bible as the true history of the world?” he said.

Ham’s Noah’s Ark project took advantage of $18 million in tax benefits and tourism incentives.

The state of Kentucky attempted to block the project from receiving public funding, but Ham took his case to court and won. “Christians pay taxes in this world. We live in this world. We’re not second-class citizens. The federal judge rule in our favor,” he said.

“It’s just inappropriate. To me, [it’s] a clear violation of the First Amendment, for crying out loud,” Nye argued.

To work at Ark Encounter, job applicants must sign a statement of faith, professing a Christian belief in the creation story. For instance, they agree that the “great flood of Genesis was an actual historic event, worldwide in its extent and effect.”

Ham said this is necessary because “we are a Christian organization and we have a Christian message.”

Among the construction workers who have helped build the ark are Amish carpenters who said part of their faith included accepting the Bible as truth. The artists who created the ark’s exhibits are believers too.

“There’s a lot of people that scoff,” Ham said. “We get a lot of attacks by some of the aggressive secularists. Sometimes I feel a bit like Noah.”

Admission to Ark Encounter will be $40 for adults and $28 for children, and Ham said he expects that fascination with Noah and his ark will result in 1 million to 2 million visitors in the first year.

“We really do believe that if we build it, they will come. And they’re going to come,” Ham said.

**************

About 4,000 years ago, the people laughed at Noah because he built the ark on dry land.  Today, the people laugh at Ken Ham for building a replica of the ark on dry land.  Yes indeed, the more things change, the more they stay the same.  Pagan evolutionists like Bill Nye, actually despise the replica of the ark being built because they hate the truth.  The Scopes’ Monkey Trial of 1925 asserted that evolutionists simply desired an equal voice.  That “equal” voice has snuffed God and prayer out of the classroom, and contributed to moral decadence throughout this once great nation.  Abortion, euphanasia, fornication, and every other form of debauchery find their roots in this godless philosophy.  A mere generation ago, Christianity ruled the land as we enjoyed a wonderful way of life.  We have “sown the wind, and we are reaping the whirlwind.”  Hosea 8:7    Maranatha, Pastor Steve

Hard To Harmonize

The following statistics are certainly eye opening, and reveal volumes about the spiritual status of our nation:

1)88% of Americans own at least one Bible.

2)More Americans believe in aliens and extra terrestrials than believe in God!

Blending these facts together, I believe they reveal that our nation is totally brainwashed by evolution.  If one does not believe in God, then by default they believe there is no such thing as a creation. and they must search in the past for changes in life forms, usually believing they exist elsewhere in a more advanced state.  Evidently, their “god” is random chance plus time.  In other words, time plus nothing made everything.  Life originally was the result of mere chance, and everything in the universe is the result of a great cosmic crap shoot!  You know, when I was an unbeliever and lost, I still realized that there was a God who made everything.  The Bible tells us that all men are given proof of the reality of the Godhead through our conscience within and the creation around us.  (Romans 1:19-21)  The beautiful, intricate and orderly design of the universe shouts out for a perfect, all seeing, all powerful and all knowing Creator!  The proof is in the pudding.  You think about that.  Pastor Steve

John MacArthur On Creation

If you deny the literal interpretation of the Genesis account of creation, you’ve undermined every major doctrine of the Bible, including the sovereignty of God, the inerrancy of Scripture, the depravity of man, and the gospel itself.  If Genesis is not divinely, authoritatively, and inerrantly true and sufficient, all moral obligations to God are null and void.  It’s no coincidence that fornication, adultery, and homosexuality are being celebrated today.  We live in a Romans 1 world where people have suppressed the evident truth about God’s reign as Creator.  The result is that God has given them over to their lusts.  The unrestrained, disastrous plunge into sin we’re witnessing is both the cause and result of God’s judgment.

Mark 10:6 Proves A Recent Creation

Days of Praise

The Beginning of the Creation

“But from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female.” (Mark 10:6)

These words of the Lord Jesus Christ ought to settle once and for all, for those who take His words seriously, the controversial question of the age of the earth. The earth was created essentially at the same time, He said, as the creation of Adam and Eve. Christ was quoting from Genesis 1:27: “male and female created He them.” This greatest of God’s creative works was “from the beginning of the creation,” not 13 billion years after the beginning of the creation, as modern old-earth advocates allege.

One can understand why atheists believe in evolution and an almost infinitely old universe, for they really have no other alternative. One who believes in a personal God, on the other hand, only dishonors God if he believes such humanistic speculations rather than God’s Word. God is omniscient and omnipotent, as well as loving and merciful, and He would never do anything like this. The great ages assumed by evolutionary geologists supposedly involved billions of years of suffering and dying by billions of animals before man ever evolved. Surely this would have been the most inefficient, wasteful, and cruel method that ever could have been devised for “creating” human beings. Since man’s creation was God’s main purpose, there is no conceivable reason why He would waste billions of years in such a meaningless charade as this before getting to the point.

In fact, the only reason He took six days instead of an instant of time was to serve as a pattern for man’s work week (Exodus 20:8-11). In fact, the Lord Jesus Christ was not only a creationist, but was Himself the Creator of all things (John 1:3; Colossians 1:16; etc.). Therefore, He is the best possible witness as to when He created man and woman, and He said it was “from the beginning of the creation!” HMM
