The Case - Part 2

Unread post by jaybe » August 21st, 2018, 11:48 am

“All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness….” (2 Tim. 3:16).
Over 3,000 times, in some form or another, the Bible’s authors claimed to be speaking for God. Jesus also testified to this many times, attributing the words of Old Testament prophets to the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, affirming its historical events, miracles and places as true and accurate, etc.
But let’s look at some evidence from the realm of science to see how the words of the Bible stand up.
1. Astronomy – The Bible declares that the universe had a beginning. This was rejected by philosophers and scientists for over 2,000 years, but now is accepted by most astronomers, albeit in a different way. The evolutionary scientist says that in the beginning there was nothing, then it exploded (!). The Bible declares that the eternal God created the universe.
2. Anthropology – According to the Bible, all humans are of “one blood”, having descended from one man and one woman. There was a time when it was believed that certain ethnic groups (wrongly called, “races”) had a different ancient ancestry. Today, genetics have verified that there is only one human race.
3. Biology – The Bible states that all animals were created “after their own kind”. Plainly stated, dogs beget dogs and bats beget bats, etc. It was once argued that animals evolved (changed) from other very different animals. Today biology confirms that creatures reproduce after their own kind.
4. Geology – In Genesis 6-8 it is recorded that God destroyed the earth and the creatures inhabiting it with a world-wide flood. In the 19th century, geologists began arguing that the major rock layers and fossils in them were formed as sediments deposited slowly (many still adhere to this belief). But true geology actually confirms that many/most rock layers were deposited catastrophically, just as would happen in a global flood. This can be seen especially as the same rock layers found in one part of the world are also found hundreds and even thousands of miles away – even on different continents. It would take a catastrophic event of immense proportions to cause this to be so.
There are many more evidences in each of the above categories that show that only a divine Author could have written the Bible, knowing about them in advance.
My next post will provide evidences from additional areas.

In my Pea-brain understanding and belief in God, many written things/species/theories and considered evolutionary steps, even the Ancient Aliens visitations theory, allow for the divine existence and interactions of God. LIFE IMHO, no matter what physical/historical course it took, DIDN'T JUST SIMPLY POP UP.

You're right, Dan. It's difficult to imagine that so-called intelligent minds could embrace the idea that everything came from nothing - which then exploded and became everything. The only reasonable explanation for this kind of thinking is also found in the Bible.
In Romans 1:18-22 this very thought is explained as the result of people willingly "suppressing the truth". They claim to be wise, but in fact, have made themselves to be fools by the theories they have substituted (and false gods they worship) in place of simply believing what God has shown to all people through His creation. Underlined phrases below are mine for emphasis.

(Rom 1:18-19
For God’s wrath is revealed from heaven against all godlessness and unrighteousness of people who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth, since what can be known about God is evident among them, because God has shown it to them.
(Rom 1:20
For His invisible attributes, that is, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen since the creation of the world, being understood through what He has made. As a result, people are without excuse.
(Rom 1:21
For though they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God or show gratitude. Instead, their thinking became nonsense, and their senseless minds were darkened.
(Rom 1:22-23
Claiming to be wise, they became fools and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man, birds, four-footed animals, and reptiles.

A point that should not be overlooked here is the seriousness of substituting a belief in anything other than the God who created the universe. God loves us so much that He sent His Son to die for our sin. But He does not take lightly those who reject Him.

Wow...…….I've never heard or read so much spot on scripture that described todays liberals in my life.
