The Real Problem Is Christians Standing In the Counsel of the Ungodly

 

Psalm 1:1 Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly

The real problem is not one of proving the earth to be a certain age from either scientific observation (an exercise in circular reasoning) or from the Bible.  The real problem is that some Christian theologians have been standing in the counsel of the ungodly on this and many other matters.  They have been standing at the feet of atheists and liars.  They have been brought into bondage by those lies.

Some theologians say that the first three days of creation were billions of years long, but the next three days were 24 hours.  That would be kind of inconsistent, but they have a rationalization to get around that inconsistency.  The problem is that these Christians are going through these mental gymnastics for one reason.  These Christians stood in the counsel of the ungodly.  They learned about the billions of years from the ungodly.  They became brainwashed and felt a need to conform the Bible to the teachings of the ungodly.

Exodus 20:11, For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is

This verse shows the extreme twisting of scripture that is required by those who sit in the counsel of the ungodly.  For in six days--oh, by the way, some of these days were actually billions of years--the LORD made...   Could it possibly be true?  Sure.  Is it highly speculative and weird?  Yes.  Why would someone spend a lot of energy on such a question?  Those who have been sitting in the counsel of the ungodly are held captive by the lies of the ungodly.

And then, some will say that the "evening" and the "morning" could have other renderings as well.  The words translated as evening and morning can also be translated as beginning and ending, so they do not help to specify these six days as twenty-four hour days. But, again, all of this is really immaterial in regard to the evolution question since long periods of time in no way make evolution possible. Evolution remains a scientific impossibility.  A six-day creation by the Almighty is obviously possible and seems to be exactly what happened.  There is no reason to speculate about such things.  God forbids adding to or taking from Scripture in this way--speculation adds to Scripture or takes away from it or both.

Psalm 131 basically says that speculation is the mark of spiritual immaturity. Better to believe the Spirit of God speaking to us through the Word. Just because I may not understand, that is no reason to think that God is kidding or to make up some wild story, a vision out of my own mind.  It is supreme pride that says that it can understand everything that God is able to do.  At the same time, I'm so thankful for those scientists who point out that the speculators who claim that their speculation is science are just making up stories.
