  • Time for this week's question.  Do you believe in a young earth or an old earth?

    My answer: I used to be pretty lenient about the age of the earth.  I didn't see it as a huge theological issue, but that changed.  You see, there's a lot of evidence for a young earth and a lot of evidence against an old earth.  There are issues if you consider an old earth both theologically and scientifically.  So I believe in a young earth, and I believe that the old earth teaching is heretical.

    1 Peter 3:15 (NASB): "But sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you, yet with gentleness and reverence."

  • Same here.

  • I agree, but there are some "Christians" who believe that God took billions of years to create the Earth, that the 6 days were NOT literal days, even though Genesis supports 6 literal days when the account says, "there was MORNING and there was EVENING, the first day" (and so on).  From there, the Bible recounts the genealogies from Adam to Abraham, Abraham to David, and David to Jesus, then from Jesus to now and we can get an approximate age of the Earth.

  • I believe that the earth is actually pretty young. Carbon dating (which most scientist use to place an age on the earth) has proven to be extremely faulty. I've read about cases where they've tested living specimens and the age results come back saying millions of years old. So with that being disproved, I really have no reason to believe that the earth isn't as young as the bible says it is.
