The Bible teaches us that the earth is not as old as science says it is. Science will have you believe that the earth is billions of years old and formed when a whole lot of nothing exploded in an event called the “Big Bang” and out of circumstance created earth and all the life on it. The theories constantly change which proves they are not truth. The Bible has all of the truth we need to prove the earth is only around 6,000-7,000 years old. God created the earth in 6 literal days and rested on the 7th. The truth is available to everyone in their Bible, regardless of what people say the Bible is perfect and you either believe all of it or none of it.
“16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: 17 That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.”2 Timothy 3:16-17
The Devil is the one behind all of the science being taught in universities and to the little children in school. He operates most effectively by planting seeds of doubt in people’s minds. Science will say “it took mountains and islands millions of years to form”. They will base it off of the extremely slow way that continents shift and move and volcanoes erupt underwater over long periods of time to form islands which at the pace that this does occur would take hundreds of millions of years to create mountain ranges like the Swiss Alps or islands like all of the Pacific Islands in the Ring of Fire. Nowhere in the Bible does it say God created everything at its beginning stage. In fact God spoke every island and mountain range into existence on the third day:
“9 And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so. 10 And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas: and God saw that it was good.” Genesis 1:9-10
So what would naturally take hundreds of millions of years to form with the way the earth works and operates took God only one day, He can do the impossible. There are also Christians that are in love with the world and try to agree with the Devil to be accepted by the world and say that “the 6 days that God created the world could be 6 eras of millions of years”. This is wrong because the first day of the earth was the actual first day of earth’s existence, the Bible says so:
“3 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. 4 And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.5 And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.” Genesis 1:3-5
What God did before the first day, none of us know. Since God always was and will be it was an infinite amount of time. Our human minds can not comprehend that nor should we try because it will end in endless equations and failure. The scientists will say the stars have to be billions of years old but again God created them on the fourth day:
“14 And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years: 15 And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so. 16 And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also.” Genesis 1:14-16
Nowhere in the Bible does it say every star has planets going around it. There is no life on other planets, nothing in the Bible indicates this, the stars were made for us on earth, the center of God’s creation. There is a spiritual realm however and there are many fallen angels in it that will get confused as extraterrestrials when in reality they are just interdimensional. It is a blessing to know we are the center of God’s creation.
Science will use the lie of evolution to say that all life evolved but it is nothing but a lie from the pit of Hell. God created every animal, sea creatures on the fifth day and land creatures on the sixth, the same day He created man. If animals can evolve then yes it would take what God did in one 24 hour day billions of years. God showed Adam every creature and let him choose the name it would be called, what a loving Father God is.
” And out of the ground the Lord God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof.” Genesis 2:19
Since Adam was created on the 6th day and lived 930 years (part of the reason for longer lives back then was to populate the earth, God reduced lifespans significantly later in the Bible) we can follow the generations listed in the Bible and find that the earth was created around the year 4,000 B.C. According to some scholars some of the genealogies could have skipped a generation or two based on other scripture but that would not even come close to millions of years. So we can say based on the Bible the earth is around 6,000-7,000 years old. It is not a salvation issue to know the exact number because only God knows and will tell us in Heaven one day, Lord willing. The Devil will stop at nothing to try and put doubt in God so it is no wonder he has infiltrated what the world calls “science” and “education”. God puts a very simple outline in how He formed our earth and all creation in the first couple chapters of Genesis so we could understand and marvel at His Glory because it would have been impossible without Him.
