How Time Is Measured

Just a thought…For hundreds of years, man has been able to figure time by a careful observation of the sun and the moon. For example, some ancient figured out that if you stick two poles in the ground and a third pole at a short distance behind the first two, you can determine a year  has passed from the position of the sun. Observation of the moon determines the length of a month. We can determine the equinoxes and solstices by observation, also.
So my question is this: How do you account for a week of seven days if you do not believe in the Genesis record of creation?

Can't They Make A Pen That Writes?

If folks can put a man on the moon, why can’t they make a ball point pen that writes (every time)?

When I buy groceries and begin to write a check – the pen doesn’t write, or the ink skips where you can’t read the writing. It’s always been amazing to me, that the more simple a thing is, the more complicated man makes it.

Do you think that’s the reason why folks seemingly can’t understand the Bible — because they make something that is relatively simple (the gospel) complicated?

What Feature Of Creation?

There are too many features to list. Can’t focus on just one. The oceans, the heavens, the moon and the stars all show God’s handiwork (Psalm 19:1): http://mbriley.preachersfiles.com/2011/01/14/the-awesome-ruler-of-sea-and-sky/

We ourselves are a part of God’s handiwork (Ephesians 2:10 AMP) for we (like the hummingbird) are wonderfully made (Psalm 139:14): http://mbriley.preachersfiles.com/2007/03/15/the-amazing-hummingbird/

No question about it – our God is indeed awesome! http://mbriley.preachersfiles.com/2008/07/25/our-awesome-god/
