Escape from an apostate church through knowledge of Scriptures.
Word of the Month for March 2010
Wilhelm Leber’s article “Word of the Month for March 2010” typifies why I and others have separated ourselves from the New Apostolic Church.Far from being a defender of the faith, Leber’s position attempts to impugn the credibility of the Scriptures.
Leber is not defending the faith with this article.Leber is taking an antagonistic position that is similar to the position taken by the Roman Catholic Church, in that the more the church can impugn and discredit the words of Scriptures, the more people will look to the church and submit themselves to the arbitrary whims of the church leadership instead of looking to the Scriptures and submitting themselves to the commands of our Creator.This is a trend we see in many churches, religious organizations and cults.
Furthermore, Leber and even a great many scientists today are overlooking a mountain of scientific evidence that refutes the notion of a universe that is billions of years old.
In today’s media and academia, Darwinian evolution, which requires billions of years since the origin of the universe, is simply an assumed foregone conclusion.This constant drumbeat causes people to doubt the credibility of a literal interpretation of Scripture in favor of the satanic lies perpetrated in our culture today.
Yet, when we closely examine the science, we see that there are virtually always at least two ways to interpret the evidence.The conclusions that we reach rely largely on our predetermined belief system.For example, the fact that most animals have two eyes suggests common ancestry to Darwinian evolutionists, yet to a software engineer like myself, the fact that most animals have two eyes suggests an optimal design pattern.
For these reasons, we are going to start a new series titled “Creation per Scriptures” in which we will see that the belief that the universe is billions of years old requires more faith than believing the words of Scriptures.We will examine the following evidences.
Spiral Galaxies – The shape of galaxies suggest that the universe cannot be billions of years old as old-universe advocates claim.
Speed of Light – The first piece of evidences that is virtually always citied by old-universe advocates is that fact that light presently requires billions of years to travel from distant galaxies, yet this claim ignores the evidence that the speed of light has decayed with time.We will examine this fascinating evidence.
Missing Old Supernova Remnants – We can examine the debris fields of exploded stars to determine how long ago the star exploded, yet we see scant evidence that stars exploded billions or even millions of years ago.We should see thousands of super-nova remnants that are more than a million years old, yet we see just a few. The absence of thousands of very old super-nova remnants presents a problem for old-universe advocates.
Star Formation – We will examine the impossibility of the formation of stars according to natural processes, as an old-universe would require. Stars simply cannot evolve into existence the way old-universe advocates claim.
Recession of the Moon – The moon is slowly moving away from the Earth at such a rate that would have put it in contact with the earth a relatively short time ago, according to old-universe advocates.We will examine how this evidence is troublesome for those who claim that the “days” of creation were very long periods of time.
The Shrinking Sun – The sun looses its mass at a rate of 0.1% every year, which presents big problems for old-universe advocates.
Earth’s Fading Magnetic Field – The magnetic field of the Earth shields us from deadly solar radiation and is disappearing fast.The projected disappearance of this protective barrier interestingly coincides with the universal lifespan as suggested by Scriptures of 7,000 years.
The Magnetic Fields of Other Planets – Learn how a scientist accurately predicted the magnetic fields of each of the other planets in our solar system by presupposing that the earth and the entire universe are only 6,000 years old.
Existence of Comets – Comets are essentially large snow-balls in space that lose their mass over time as the result of solar radiation.The existence of comets suggests that the solar system is not more that several thousand years old.
Salinity of the Oceans – If the earth is actually billions of years old as old-universe advocates suggest, then the oceans would be much saltier than they are today.We will examine the evidence.
And what about the so-called predecessors of modern human beings?What about the age of ancient fossils?We will examine the following evidences.
Carbon-14 Dating is Unreliable – we will examine the evidence that radio-metric dating is based largely upon assumptions that have not been proven true.Is this method of dating fossils really accurate?
Mitochondrial DNA– the cells of every human being on the planet bear witness that we all came from the same mother.
Past Fossil Frauds – we will examine the gaffs Darwinian evolutionists have made in the past regarding their interpretation of various fossils.We will examine Heidelberg Man, Nebraska Man, Piltdown Man, Neanderthal Man, and Cro-Magnon Man and will see how each of these fantastic fossils turned out to be frauds.
Did the authors of Scriptures actually believe the Earth is flat?Antagonists of Scriptures and liberal theologians (i.e. wolves in sheeps' clothing) make such a claim in order to erode faith in the credibility of Scriptures.We will examine the evidence and see that the answer is a resounding no.
By examining the scientific evidences we will see that the belief that the universe is billions of years old is a belief based merely on faith and not on science.
By examining the Scriptures we will see that religious leaders who do not affirm the literal truth of Scriptures will stand charged with calling our Creator a liar on the dreadful Day of Judgment.
