Does it really matter??

Posted on Jan 5, 2022 in Creation Nuggets | 0 comments

  Read this carefully! “I remember in seminary the theology professor saying, “The Hebrew text in Genesis clearly points to a recent creation and the creation days being ordinary days, but science points to an old earth—so you guys go figure it out.” This left me with lingering questions. Why would God be so clear about the history in Genesis if ‘science’ disproves it so readily? How could the God who transmitted Scripture through inspired human authorship be a...

Posted on Jan 24, 2020 in Creation Nuggets | 0 comments

  There are many biblical occurrences of yôm: it appears a total of 2291 times with 1446 being in the singular (a slight majority, 729, appear with a preposition), and 845 in the plural (only 213 appear in a prepositional phrase).18… …The word yôm, either singular or plural, is used with a number 359 times outside of Genesis 1…Terence Fretheim observes, ‘When the word “day” is used with a specific number, it always has reference to a normal...

Is it really a side-issue?

Posted on Jan 16, 2020 in Creation Nuggets | 0 comments

  Is the Age of the Earth topic – just a side issue? Have you heard this before: “Can’t you be a Christian and believe in Evolution or the Billions of years?” “RESPONSE: It is possible to do this, but only if you don’t think much about the consequences of deep time and evolution for the Gospel. See: Did God create over billions of years? It is certainly not a side-issue for evangelism, because the perception that you ‘can’t believe the Bible because...

The Star of Bethlehem – My Perspective

Posted on Dec 23, 2010 in Creation Nuggets | 0 comments

Our study of the Star of Bethlehem begins with the wise men coming to Jerusalem (Matthew 2:1).  The wise men came from the East, so I am assuming they are either from Persia or the Babylonian area.  In Matthew 2:2, the wise men inquire concerning the whereabouts of the King of the Jews, because they saw His star the night Jesus was born.  Why were they looking for a star?   I believe they were looking because of the prophecy made by Balaam in Numbers 24:17, 19a, about the...

The Miracle of the Incarnation

Posted on Dec 16, 2010 in Creation Nuggets | 0 comments

One of the greatest doctrines, and greatest mysteries, of the Christian faith is the incarnation of Jesus Christ, in which our holy, transcendent Creator took on human flesh and became man.  Scripture clearly teaches this truth, and we accept it by faith, yet those of us with inquiring minds still have many questions. Henry Morris, in his book, Biblical Creationism, discusses some of these questions at length. The following ideas are condensations of his suggestions.  While...

What is a Day?

Posted on Nov 20, 2010 in Creation Nuggets | 0 comments

How long is a day? Now this might seem like a silly question; however, some people believe the days of Creation that we read about in the book of Genesis in the Bible are long periods of time, not real, ordinary, 24 hour days. Believing that the millions of years that evolution teaches are true, they try to change how long a day of the Bible is to fit with these long ages. Some think the Bible teaches that each day of Creation can be a thousand years  …“But, beloved, be not...

Bible’s Records of Creation-Written in Legalese?

Posted on Nov 18, 2010 in Articles | 0 comments

Surveying the sordid history of our world, it’s obvious that social relations between humans are often plagued by misunderstanding.  A lot of this misunderstanding is due to unclear language. To address this chronic human problem, we have established courts of law.  Courts, in turn, have developed their own distinctive method of communicating clearly.  Lawyers employ a language style known to non-lawyers as “legalese.”  One of the main features of “legalese” is repetition. ...

Gems From Genesis – How Did All the Skin Colors Arise?

Posted on Sep 20, 2008 in Think & Believe Newsletter | 0 comments

A common question of skeptics of the Bible and even of some Bible-believing Christians is, “If we all came from Adam and Eve, why are there so many different skin colors?”  There is a good answer, which is consistent with both the Bible and with well-known genetic principles.  I will deal with the genetic principles in the next article (The Origin of the Races), but let’s review here the Biblical foundations for answering this question. The early chapters of Genesis reveal...

The Origin of the Races

Posted on Sep 20, 2008 in Think & Believe Newsletter | 0 comments

The explanation of the origin of “races” is given by simple genetic principles.  (For those of you who freaked out in high school biology, hang in there!  I will try my best to make this understandable.  Geneticists, please bear with the simplification!)  All right, here we go! Our “looks” are determined by genes.  Genes coding for a particular trait (like skin color) can come in a variety of forms called “alleles.”  Sometimes these alleles appear to be of equal strength,...

Gems From Genesis – In the Image of God pt. 2

Posted on Mar 20, 2008 in Think & Believe Newsletter | 0 comments

In the last article, we looked at some ideas of what it means to be made “in the image of God.”  In particular, we talked about the fact that as a result of Adam’s sin, the image of God has been blurred and distorted in mankind.  However, in the fullness of time, God sent Jesus, “the image of the invisible God” (Col 1:15 AKJV), to be the “last Adam” and to undo the damage done by Adam’s sin, that we may be “conformed to the image of his Son” (Rom 8:29 AKJV).  This is truly...

Gems From Genesis: Conflicting or Complimentary Accounts?

Posted on Jul 20, 2007 in Think & Believe Newsletter | 0 comments

After a lecture at a university, a student told me that although he had a church background, he had become an atheist.  When I asked him why, he said that one reason was because of all the contradictions in the Bible.  I asked for an example, and he replied that there are two different creation stories, one in Genesis 1 and another in Genesis 2.  Personally, I was glad that he chose this example of a so-called contradiction, because I myself had struggled with it in the...

Gems From Genesis 1

Posted on Jan 20, 2007 in Think & Believe Newsletter | 0 comments

Genesis – the book of beginnings!  What a treasure!  There is so much hidden in these pages, yet they are too often skimmed through, overlooked, ignored, or even scoffed at in our “sophisticated” world.  But stop and think what we would be missing without the book of Genesis. In Genesis, God gives us valuable information about Himself, ourselves, and our world, that we would have no other way of knowing for sure.  In the pages of Genesis, we read about the creation of the...
