Sorry Francis - You're in LEFT Field with this BIG BANG nonsense! (homosexuality)

posted by bibleprobe(R) Homepage, Mass., 10.30.2014

Jesus told us in clear terms that He saw Satan and his rebellious followers fall from Heaven after trying to usurp GOD's authority.

In Genesis 1:1-2 we read, "In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep..."

SO HERE we have an indication that for perhaps a million or two or more years the earth was barren... Just Nothingness. A fitting place for Satan and his Fallen Angels to dwell in.

It was a Protestant Bishop named James Ussher (1581-1656), one of the greatest scholars and theologians of his time, who around 1650 A.D. first insisted that God created the world in 4004 B.C. Science and what we can observe tells us that this statement is incorrect. Of interest though - nothing in the fossil records indicates man existed more than 6,000 - 8,000 years ago. So perhaps Bishop Ussher and the chronological time scale of the Bible is exact after all - 6009 (in 2005) years or so. Also, there is an awful lot of evidence from Jewish, pagan, and worldwide tribal traditions for both a worldwide flood, and dating creation to about 6009 years ago.

James Ussher (1581-1656), Archbishop of Armagh, was the Primate of All Ireland. Bishop Ussher established the first day of creation as Sunday 23 October 4004 BC. Ussher calculated the dates of other biblical events, concluding, for example, that Adam and Eve were driven from Paradise on Monday 10 November 4004 BC, and that the ark touched down on Mt Ararat on 5 May 2348 BC `on a Wednesday'.Ussher began his calculation by adding the ages of the twenty-one generations of people of the Hebrew-derived Old Testament, beginning with Adam and Eve. Working backwards through the Book of Judges, Ussher computed 330 years for the duration of the rule of Judges. The chronology first appeared in The Annals of the Old Testament, a monumental work first published in London in the summer of 1650. As a Protestant bishop in a Catholic land, Ussher's obsession with providing an accurate Biblical history stemmed from a desire to establish the superiority of the scholarship practiced by the clergy of his reformed faith over that of the Jesuits, the resolutely intellectual Roman Catholic order.Ussher's proposed date of 4004 BC was not greatly different from the estimates of the Venerable Bede (3952 BC) or Ussher's near-contemporary, Scaliger (3949 BC). It was widely believed that the Earth's potential duration was 6,000 years (4,000 before the birth of Christ and 2,000 after) corresponding to the six days of Creation, on the grounds that "one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day" (2 Peter 3:8).

Shakespeare, in As You Like It, has his character Rosalind say, "The poor world is almost six thousand years old." Martin Luther, the great reformer, favored (liking the round number) 4000 B.C. as a date for creation. Astronomer Johannes Kepler concluded that 3992 B.C. was the probable date. The Mayan calendar dates the creation of the Earth to August 11 or August 13, 3114 BC (establishing that date as the zeroth day of the Long Count 13.0.0.0.0). The Mayan Calendar ends abruptly in 2012 A.D.

Currently, there is a near consensus among earth atheist scientists that the age of "Earth and [the rest of] our solar system is 4.54 billion years, plus or minus 0.02 billions years." This seems to change by a billion or so years every 5 years or so, however.

CHRISTIANS ABSOLUTELY CAN BELIEVE IN A YOUNG UNIVERSE
We have an awesome God, who spoke the universe into creation. This same God created Adam and Eve as adults and not as babies. It would be nothing for this God to create an earth and universe 7500 years ago - already mature. The Bible, however, alludes to an age before mankind.

In Genesis 1:1-2 we read, "In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep..."

There is NO mention of any BIG BANG in Scripture. Pope Francis is way out in scriptural LEFT FIELD here with this BIG BANG thing. There is however mention of 7 days (which may be several hundred years) in which GOD created everything.
