Stars

On a clear night, an unaided observer can see somewhere around 2000 stars.  With a telescope multitudes more become visible.  How many are there in all?  No one really knows, and yet the Bible records God’s promise to Abraham thousands of years ago:  “In blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven and as the sand which is upon the sea shore” (Gen. 22:17).  Just as no man could ever count the grains of sand on the sea...

For Signs and For Seasons

Posted on Dec 20, 2013 in Think & Believe Newsletter | 0 comments

The Bible tells us that God made the lights in the heavens “for signs, and for seasons, and for days and years” (Gen. 1:14). Since the dawn of recorded history, people have studied the stars.  Interestingly enough, cultures all around the world have identified and named the same constellations, though the groupings of stars bear little or no resemblance to the creatures they supposedly represent.  Is this merely coincidence or does it indicate a common origin for their...

The Apparent Age of the Stars and a Young Earth

Posted on May 20, 2001 in Think & Believe Newsletter | 0 comments

The Bible indicates the universe is young but why does it appear so old?  Physicist, Dr. Russell Humphreys studied this problem for about 12 years.  His professional career as a scientist at Sandia Laboratories includes investigating various aspects of nuclear energy which requires a thorough understanding of relativity theory.  His answer to the problem is based upon Einstein’s prediction that clocks run at different rates.  The rate that a clock records time has been...

The Heavens Declare God’s Glory – 2001

Posted on May 20, 2001 in Think & Believe Newsletter | 0 comments

Have you even been struck with awe and wonder on a clear, starlit night?  There is something special about the stars that lift our eyes heavenward and our thoughts beyond every day cares.  Somehow, in a very real way, God reveals His Glory in the heavens. In our modern world of cities, smog, and electric lights, we can often go for weeks without gazing at the stars; but I suspect it wasn’t that way in times past.  For settlers scattered on the plains of the American west,...

Great is our God

Posted on May 20, 1999 in Think & Believe Newsletter | 0 comments

The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament shewest his handiwork.  Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge.  There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard. (Psalsm 19:1-3) As a child, few things jarred my awareness for the existence of God more than a clear summer’s night sky.  The incomprehensible vastness and peaceful sparkling beauty testified of an all-wise, all-powerful God. The Bible states that on the fourth...

Light From Distant Stars

Posted on Mar 20, 1992 in Think & Believe Newsletter | 0 comments

Opponents of a literal interpretation of Genesis 1 often state, “Given the size of the universe and the speed of light, it would take the light billions of years to reach the earth.  Therefore the universe can’t be young.  If it was, we couldn’t even see most of the stars.”  How can a young-age creationist answer this challenge? First we believe that God is powerful enough to create a universe that can be seen!  How He did this, we may never know.  Some suggest that the...
