Recap of Session Four Question: Is the Bible accurate? Why? Answers: 1.Transmission of OT & NT 2.Manuscript Evidence 3.Accurate Reading of the Bible
Bible Reading Read Genesis 1:1-31 2 Timothy 3:16-17 Psalms 117:160 These verses illustrate that the Bible is very clear on the issue of creation and exactly what happened. Also that scripture is from God and contains no errors. If this be so, then Creation vs. Evolution and Millions of Years should not be an issue.
Creation The Bible clearly states that God created the heavens and the Earth and that He created plants, animals, and humans all in 6 days. Dinosaurs would have been created with all the other animals. God made everything with the appearance of age! – Adam and Eve were never babies. – The mountains were never hills. – There was no egg before the chicken. Any other view would need to stretch the biblical evidence to make it fit.
Evolution The Theory of Evolution requires an old Earth. Their dating methods are flawed. There is no fossil evidence to support evolution. Charles Darwin believed that there would be fossils found that showed a half ape half human, there are no such fossils. The fossil evidence that is available has been distorted to fit their views.
Actual Bones that were recovered. The Pelvis is altered. The bones with plaster filling to “complete” the fossil. Lucy
Genealogic Record Old Testament Genesis 5 - Adam to Noah Genesis 11 - Shem (Noah’s son) to Abraham New Testament Matthew 1:1-17 – Abraham to Jesus (Mary’s line) Luke 3:23-38 – Jesus to Adam (Joseph’s line)
Lessons From the Genealogic Record Genesis 5 – Adam to Noah Adam died at 930 which would have been 931 AC. Noah’s father was born in 875 AC, which was 56 years before Adam died. Noah was born when his father was 182 which would have been in 1057 AC. Noah lived 950 years which means he died in 2007 AC. There were 1057 years between Adam and Noah.
Lessons From the Genealogic Record Genesis 11 – Shem to Abraham Terah was born in 1879 AC and was 70 when Abraham was born. Abraham was born in 1949 AC which was 58 years before Noah died in 2007 AC. Abraham lived 175 years and would have died in 2124 AC. Noah was 500 when Shem was born and there were 392 years between Shem and Abraham. That is a total of 892 years between Noah and Abraham.
Lessons From the Genealogic Record Matthew and Luke’s Genealogies Jesus was born in 4BC. This would have been around 4112AC. Jesus was crucified when he was 33 ½ which would have been in 30AD. This would have been 4145 years after creation. This year is 2011. That would be 6126 years after the creation of the world.
Science vs. Christianity ScienceThe Bible 1.Age of the Earth is 4.54 billion years old 2.The earth was created by a Big Bang 3.Dinosaurs died before humans came along. 4.Life was a product of evolution 5.Everything that happens can be explained by nature and scientific experimentation thus the supernatural does not exist. 1.Age of the Earth is less than 10,000 yrs old 2.God created the heavens and the Earth 3.God created the dinosaurs when he created the other animals. 4.God created plants and animals and then humans in His image. 5.There is a supernatural and miracles and supernatural beings such as angels do exist. God’s ways are not our ways! YOU HAVE A CHOICE Where does your faith, and the evidence lead you?
