Is your Worldview based on the world?

Many professing Christians think man has more wisdom than God in determining how long the creation took. Of course, few people put it in those terms, but that is what it boils down to. Here’s an example.

What are the consequences of disbelieving in a literal 6 day creation? We deny the clear teaching of the Old and New Testament. Jesus taught (recorded in Mark 10:6) that man and woman were created in the beginning of creation – not after a long, long time.

And when we deny the clear teachings of the elementary things of Scripture, why should our children believe us or our pastors when they are taught about sin and deliverance from its consequences? If creation is reduced to a fairy tale, we have breached the foundation of God’s revelation to man. God stated out His special revelation to man with the words, “In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.” Creation is important to Him – it ought to be to us.

For a few days, you can download a 40 minute video in which Ken Ham describes the importance of believing God’s Word – for you and the next generation. In it you will find out:

The next generation is already calling it quits on traditional church. Next Sunday, look around, two thirds of the young people in your church are already disengaged from the message they are hearing. And it’s not just happening on the nominal fringe; it’s happening in the most solid “Bible-believing” churches.

In this important DVD, Ken Ham discusses the profound cultural changes taking place in our Western world, as God’s Word is rejected and man’s fallible ideas are welcomed. Ken relates some of the shocking statistics presented in the book Already Gone that reveal the reasons why young people are leaving church and abandoning the faith of their parents.

The church is failing to give children real answers to their questions. We are losing our kids long before college. But this is far from a hopeless situation. Ken explains how we can fight back for our children, and what we can do to ground our children in the faith and prepare them for the challenges of the secular world.

  1. I really enjoy Ken Ham’s messages and also his Answers in Genesis site! It is chock full of valuable information. I wish schools would teach science from the Creation view…6 literal days. Our Almighty God doesn’t need billions of years to create.

  2. papapatriot says:

    I am shocked of how many Christians who believe not in the plain teachings of the first chapter in Genesis and believe in millions or billions of years instead of 6 days.

  3. Sad fact is, papa, too many professing Christians care more for what man calls science than they do for what God calls Truth.

    I have read the book, and it was like I was reliving things I have seen happen over the past 25 years.

    Many of the young adults who were born into a Christian culture, have left the church, or turn up now and again, but are in no way living for God.

    Sad, but true.

    One thing we need to remember is that the Bible does say that God’s timing is not our own. I can’t remember where but the Bible says somewhere (I think it’s in Timothy) That “A day for us is a thousand years to God. and a day to God is a thousand years to us” Really personally I find all this Creation in 6 days vs. Creation in a billion years thing to be kinda petty. What really matters is our faith in God and Jesus not our belief in whether or not the earth was created in seven days

  6. Ima- The reference you’re seeking is 2 Pete 3:8ff and is oft mis-interpreted. Regarding the importance of the creation story – there is no support anywhere in Scripture for the day-age theory, much less for evolution. As Ken Ham points out, the use of cardinal adjectives and other specific attributes to the days of creation demand – according to the use of these combinations everywhere else – the understanding that God was speaking of normal 24 hour days in the creation story. To disbelieve the creation story is to pave the way to doubt God in myriad other ways. It is far from petty.

  7. Ima Skillet fan says:

    @Manfred Can you briefly explain how Ken Ham points out the attributes in which it actually points out 24 hour days please? I’m not allowed to download videos online AT ALL. I would if I could but my parents say not to download videos off the internet and my computer would probably take hours in downloading the video anyways (It’s an old computer and it sometimes takes 2 mins. just to download a 5 minute video!)

  8. skilletfan – good on ya for obeying your parents, for this is right and honorable in the sight of God.

    Ham noted several points that one can find in Scripture that establish rules for how the word for day is to be interpreted. It’s been a few weeks since I listened to it, so I’ll give it a shot. If “day” is preceded by a number (first day, third day, etc.) it is a 24 hour day. If “day” is described by “morning & evening” or “night”(describing the beginning and/or ending of a day) it is a 24 hour day. If day has no such descriptors, the context will clue you in as to whether it is meant to be a 24 hour day or a less definite period. Next time I listen to the video, I want to make a list of Ham’s rules as a good friend of mine is a smart fella who believes in evolution.

    Ok That does support the 6 days creation but there are some situations that might support the “billion year creation” ( I myself do not believe billion year creation but there are people who might use these arguments) 1. God rested. Why would God need to rest after just speaking? I mean speaking even for hours on end is not the hardest thing to do and doesn’t even require that much effort even for humans. 2. This all could have been from God’s point of view not humans. Evening morning, and night could have been from God’s perspective of Morning evening and night over an extended period of time vastly over the normal 24 hour period humans have. Again I do not believe anything I say here as I lean more towards the 6 day creation because it is what the Bible says. Thanks for reading and a response would be appreciated. Thanks!

  10. Ima,

    God didn’t need to rest, he did it to set an example for us.
    In your second point, God knew His Word would be read by humans. He knew what our perspective would be. If others ask you these questions, hopefully this helps! :)

    Kindly,
    Katy
