More-excellent-way, I'm so sorry your life growing up was bad. I spent most of my life not wanting to live. But when I was 30, I came into a deeper understanding of my salvation, the Lord taking me on the journey of a lifetime, through the cross put to death the old man so miserable, and raised me up together with Him A NEW CREATURE. This didn't happen overnight, and even that experience was painful......but I can say today I wouldn't change one of those moments for anything.

God sent His Son to save the weak, poor in spirit, lost souls , and the Gift of Salvation with the accompany of the riches in Christ Jesus far outway the old man. Now remembering back is like trying to remember an old movie. A renewed mind is beyond glorious.

I had a terrible life that I wouldn't wish on anybody (I never realized until I wrote what I have written that God had a good reason for my existence), but I wish my mother had an abortion when she was carrying me....NO, abortion IS NOT murder if you are not going to be taken care of properly.

You assume that your world is wonderful and great (PRIDE/EGO),....IT IS NOT.

Trav:

You criticize my political beliefs, but what about yours?

You support a president who:
- holds revenge as his highest virtue
- married three times, cheated on every wife
- lusted after his own teenage daughter*
- hit on married women*
- ran beauty pageants so he could enter dressing rooms to see naked contestants (and some were teen pageants)*
- cheats contractors* and claims it's a good business practice
- told 30,000+ lies or misleading statements in office.
(* and boasted about it)

A man who is very charismatic, breaks most of the 10C and boasts about it, and persuades many, especially the Church - any serious bible students would recognize such a person as an embodiment of antichrist.
---StrongAxe on 7/24/22


Trav:

Abortion is a tragedy, not murder.

You assume human life begins at conception. The Bible never teaches this. In several places it says that human life begins with the first breath.

If two men fight and one's pregnant wife intervenes, and miscarries, the penalty is just a fine, NOT death (Ex 21).

If a man suspects his wife of adultery, she drinks bitter water, and if guilty, her womb shrivels up, which would of course abort any child (Num 5).

Women would have children ripped from their wombs (Hos 13).

Yes, God said he knew Jeremiah when he was still in the womb, but so what? I know the eggs and the flour too, but they're not actually a cake until it comes out of the oven.

Archaeology ALWAYS claims that the earth is hundreds of millions to BILLIONS of years old.....we will never know for sure.

Check out "PANGEA" the supercontinent that existed before this world we know (look it up at Wikipedia).

In previous worlds/generations, our lamb of God was probably known as THE "SUN OF RIGHTEOUSNESS" (Malachi 3:2).

We are told that our time on earth is short.

1Ch 29:15 We are here for only a moment, visitors and strangers in the land as our ancestors were before us. Our days on earth are like a passing shadow, gone so soon without a trace.

OK. It is not an attack when I point out that you promote and stand with a political platform that supports killing 0ver 64 million innocents, and deviant from scripture.

I understand that many people have HEROES/icons and will entrust THEIR SOUL (this is a very bad and dangerous practice,.the soul is a very private/personal thing) to them, but we are doing just what the Jews did (seeking the approval of man instead of seeking the approval of GOD ONLY).
Scripture says that we are all sons of the most high (Psalm 84:5). Even still (and the Jews were aware of that fact, John 10:34), in order to be validated by their cultural institution/tradition and receive the approval of their priests and superiors, they preferred to remain sons of THE KINGDOM (servants) .
Mat 8:12 while the sons of the kingdom will be thrown into the outer darkness, there men will weep and gnash their teeth.
---more_excellent_way on 12/27/21


more_excellent_way:

Right. The Bible never calls scripture as the Word of God - only Jesus. It points to the Way. It isn't the Way itself. Many worship the letter book rather than its author - the mistake of the Pharisees.

Nevertheless, we are repeatedly told to "study to show ourselves approved". Bereans "searched the scriptures daily to see if these things be so". How can we know the Way unless we see the signposts we are given?

Many believe whatever they are told, without checking to see if it's actually true. This has always been true. Even today we have people who reject provable facts, and believe conspiracy theories, pseudohistory, pseudoscience, and heresy without evidence.
---StrongAxe on 12/22/21


Exactly, StrongAxe,

Ihe Lord wants wise and careful lovers (this is THE GOAL of all our reverence, NOT being a good reader).

The Romans had scriptures and "KNEW" God (Romans 1:21), but they made their devotion a 'BOOK devotion', they did not love God with "ALL THEIR HEART AND MIND"....So that you investigate where to put your heart/mind ("LIVING WATER", passionate caring is our THIRD WITNESS) is a lesson from God.

The water that flowed from Christ's side was "living water" we need to start learning from God's spirit (His spirit does not agree with the blood ONLY, but the WATER and the blood.

1 John 5:8....."THESE THREE AGREE".

THIS is what makes a GODLOVER.
---more_excellent_way on 12/22/21


more_excellent_way:

I don't object to things "because of what I was taught". I know there are many different perspectives. I like to investigate them before automatically making assumptions. Just like the Bereans, who didn't just take Paul's and others' word for things, but who did their own research "they searched the scriptures daily, to see if they were true".

I'm an iconoclast. I smash sacred idols, and slaughter sacred cows. I don't automatically believe what people tell me about religious (or other) matters unless they can prove they're true. I AM interested in fringe theories - but only if they can be proven correct, and when they contradict actual evidence, they must necessarily be false theories.

The "Phantom Time Hypothesis" is something Herbert Villig thought up, but is rejected by reputable scientists, and refuted by reliable science. It's a conspiracy theory that suggests that several popes conspired to retroactively change the time of Jesus' birth.

Curiously, Villig was active in an association devoted to Immanuel Velikovski (another conspiracy-theory-pushing pseudo-scientist/historian).

Historical astronomical observations of eclipses and Halley's Comet coincide with recorded dates, not shortened time - which also doesn't account for histories of cultures outside papal Europe, e.g. Islam and China.

Fomenko was a conspiracy theory crackpot who pushed a theory that says, basically, "I'm right, and everyone else in the world is wrong" - as if people all over the world (including civilizations that have been keeping accurate time records, e.g. the Chinese, and who have not been in the Vatican's orbit), don't know what they're talking about either.

Modern scientists, who have access to more accurate means of measurement than he had, have debunked his claims, and call his methods pseudoscience.

E.g. one claim is that historical Jesus was actually Andronikos I Komnenos (1152-1185), emperor of Byzantium, which would mean we are now in 869 A.D., not 2021!

FOMENKO (a russian mathematician) developed a CHRONOLOGY (a TIMELINE OF HISTORY) that says almost all of what we have been taught is FAKE.

He says that the battle of Armageddon/Megiddo happened 1479 b.c. or 609 b.c. (look it up in the encyclopedia before you whine and complain that I'm exaggerating/wrong).

There is another historian named Rohl (the ROHL CHRONOLOGY is about the ancient far east).

Good stuff David. Someone asked why people are worried about Earth age. Their kids must be grown and gone. Science had gotten better, dating past the 6,000 year Biblical period. We are sending our kids out with uneducated 200 to 500 year old doctrines that fail them when they need them most. All men from Noah after the flood, for example. I believe their was a flood in Noahs time but, it did not cover the Global world.

Why are people concerned about how old the earth is?
---JS1234 on 6/13/19


Just an added thought about the age of the earth:

God spoke everything into existence in six days just as he used Jesus to perform the miracles in the NT. He healed everyone instantly. It didn't take days or weeks of healing using man's medications or surgery. God even brought people balk to life - instantly and unnaturally.

If God could bring a person back to life instantly and unnaturally, he surely can create everything in six days.
---Steveng on 11/12/18


Now I think I know what your asking. Who were the people created on the sixth day? You asked who was created after the sixth day, which I believe were the Sons of God.

Did you know we had no knowledge of the dinosaur until the mid 1800s? Now since these folks created on the sixth day, lived and died during the same period as the dinosaur, could this be a plausible reason we have no knowledge of them?

However, I do believe Cains children were some of the offspring of these very people.

The Sons of God, those born of a living Soul, as written in (Genesis 2:7).

Like I have already said "Adam is the first 'human' son of God, both male and female. There were no other humans called sons of God until Father gave man that right.

Fellas, lets look at the facts one at a time.

In the Garden...Adam is created first ,before everything else God creates in the Garden. In Chapter one, male and female are created on the same day. Does it appear Eve was created on the same day as Adam, in Chapter two?

The mere sequence of creation in Chapter one and in Chapter two, all by itself, should be enough evidence to tell us one is about the creation of the earth, and the other is about the creation of the Garden.

Also this version of events can logically explain where Cains wife came from. The daughters of men, seemed to have evolved into attractiveness according to (Genesis 6:2). Perhaps God created them to be ugly, simply to keep the Sons of God away.

There is no conflict or contradiction between Genesis chapter one and two. Chapter two is simply a supplement to chapter one and focuses on man while chapter one focuses on the entire creation. The contradiction appears to be verse 19 where the animals seem to be created after man. I simply considered this as a sample of a flashback (or backstory) in novel writing.

One must understand that the Hebrew language is a poetic language full of flashbacks, backstories, metaphors, similes, parables to understand spiritual matters using worldly knowledge. This is why the jewish people today are good in the entertainment field.

Man is correct when they use man's instruments to calculate the age of physical objects or the universe.

Alpha Centauri is 4.2 light years away (using triangulation) and uses the speed of light to calculate the age of 6 billion years old using man's calculation. The bible states that God spoke everything into existence in six days - the sun, the moon, the earth and everything in it - including light. So, if God created everything last week Alpha Centauri would still be 6 billion years old. Scientists "perceives" this age using man's instruments/calculations.

This goes for the age of the rocks of the Earth. If God created the Earth last week, scientist would still calculate the Earth as being 4 billion years old.

Cain was banished from his family home and found a wife that was not of his family And you base this on what? How do you know he didn't take his wife with him? Adam & Eve's daughters are not listed
If Cain and his wife were from the same family, why is Seth mentioned? Because Cain slew Able and seth was his replacement. (Gen 4:25) A question for you David, why was cain not mentioned in Adam's Genealogy?.

The chronology of creation is different in Chapter 1 than it is in Chapter 2. In Chapter 1 we have the creation of the world. Chapter 2 is the creation of the Garden in Eden. If I am wrong, can you explain why the creation chronologies are different?

It should be simple logic, in light that Cain was banished from his family home and found a wife that was not of his family, that there were others who God created.

Plus in (Genesis 6:4), we can see a clear distinction between those who came from the family of Adam, and those who were not from the family of Adam.

Cain also found a wife before Seth was born. If Cain and his wife were from the same family, why is Seth mentioned, but those living in Nod were not?

Scripture states there have been many generations Of earth, doesn't mean that any of those earlier times had DAYS, any more than Gods thrown has days, hrs, minutes. Maybe LIGHT was everywhere with no darkness, until Satan fell. God is light. I believe when darkness fell upon the face of the deep the lack of light caused the waters to freeze. And it took the warmth of the Holy Spirit to move upon the face of the waters and melt that ice. Also when we read Genesis , Satan had already fallen, where for our life now on earth, God said LET THERE BE LIGHT?

And whatever the heavens and earth were before Noah's flood is also something different than we know today. The fact that man lived to almost 1000 years proves that fact.

"Those created in the six day creation cycle, were not Sons of God" God said "Let us make man in our image, after our likeness:" (Gen 1:26) By definition Adam was the first man. Chapter 2 simply tells us how that man was formed. The same word, "adam" Strongs H120 is used in both places.

I believe the gap theory between Gen 1:1 and Gen 1:2. Peter backs this up. Genesis also talks about the GENERATIONS of the earth...as being more than 1. So I believe the earth could be 4.5 billion years old. There are also scriptures in the OT of Lucifer walking in the Garden of God, that earth during one of those generations may have been a paradise like something we have never seen before. But as a result of lucifers fall, the earth became without form and void and darkness fell upon it. That fall would explain why the moon seems to have huge craters on it. That never happened in the last 6000 years. One day a NEW heaven and earth, resulting in its LAST and final generation.

Hi Joseph,
God created the earth in 6 days and rested on the 7th. Genesis states that the evening and the morning were the first day, thus establishing a 24 hour time period for each day during creation.
There are approximately 4000 years between the time of Adam and the time of Christ. If we then add 2000 years to this number since the year is 2018, we arrive at the earth being approximately 6000 years old.
Hope this is helpful.

"Answer: A little over 6000 years. Next question.
That was a very dogmatic statement Trey, what is it based on? "In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth." Scripture, as far as I know, does not address when that beginning was. If an answer was demanded of me, that answer would be, before time, as we know it, began.

On a site similar to this, a similar question was raised, so I'll give the same answer.

How our uncreated God's eternal and unmaterial "Fiat" comes to pass in the created universe of space, time, and matter is a mystery we will never understand in this world. There may not even be human language to express it.

In the next world, we won't care.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

Johnny: "That means the Egyptian pyramids were built before the deluge!"

Oh really? Based on notoriously falsified Egyptian history, I presume?

Accelerator Mass Spectrometer C14 measurements of worldwide fossils date the flood at circa 4500 YBP.

About 6,000 years.

Not sure. In the Beginning GOD created the heavens and the Earth.

When Genesis starts the planet is there. How long it was there we are not told. Then in six days GOD transformed and made it a place we can live.

That happened we thing about 10,000 to 15,000 years ago. But that is still just a guess.

The important thing is do we live in love for GOD and others.

I have no idea how the first post was posted, I never hit submit, the program failed in the middle of the composition. This is my complete thought. The question can not be answered, factually, because when the earth was created, man did not exist, and the Father did not say. I realize that someone will quote Jesus as saying "from the beginning of the creation, God made them male and female." I submit, this is in reference to the creation of man, why? Jesus was addressing divorce in that dialog, man's relationship with his woman. The verse references that which commences from that beginning. The rest of the creation is not mentioned, or referenced.

How old IS the esrth?
---Johnny74 on 10/1/18


"How old is the earth?" This question can not be answered, factually, because no man existed in the beginning, and the Father does not say. Some one will rebuke this statement by quoting Jesus saying "from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female. Male and female created he them, and blessed them, and called their name Adam, in the day when they were created."
