Despite a common belief that science and Scripture are at odds with each other, those of us who believe that God is the creator of this world also believe by extension that he is the creator of the science of this world. His Word, the Bible, backs up this belief. Many aspects of science are given in God’s word, showing that science and scripture are in harmony. It is only atheistic religion masquerading as science, such as evolution, that is contrary to scripture. But evolution is in the Bible, too. We’ll get to that shortly, but first, let’s look at some of the science in the Bible.
If Scripture is accurate, the earth is only about 6,000 years old. Yet evolutionists would have you believe that the earth is billions of years old. Frankly, how they’ve convinced themselves that pond scum could turn into all the life teeming on this planet in any time frame is beyond me, but those desperate to be their own gods will choose to believe the impossible rather than bow to the One True God.
In Isaiah 46, in verses 9 and 10, Yahovah tells us, “… I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me, declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done…” Have you ever tried to look at the beginning of God’s word, to see how he has declared the end from the beginning, how the ancient times declare the future not yet come? It’s there. A verse that gives an important hint on how the beginning of creation tells the earth’s history is found in 2 Peter 3:8, “But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.”
We have a tendency to view ourselves as the center of the universe, and sometimes feel that we have problems that are overwhelming. But the truth is that our minds can’t fully grasp the vastness of the universe, and by extension, the vastness of our God. If the purpose of this universe was to be a home for you and me, it is grossly oversized. But that isn’t its purpose. Scripture tells us in Psalm 19:1 that the heavens declare the glory of God. Based on the vastness of the universe, we have grossly undersized how big our God truly is.
