Some people are constantly looking for signs of the spiritual sort. They even do so when it comes to the return of Christ and the judgment that he will bring. But is looking for such signs worth our time?
Listen to this warning given by Jesus: Continue reading
“In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, on that day all the fountains of the great deep were broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened.” (Genesis 7:11 – NKJV)
One of the things that many people forget, or just plain out never knew, about the Bible’s account of the global flood is that the scriptures recount how water not only came down from the sky – it came up from the depths of the earth.
I know, I know…a global flood survived by eight people and a whole lot of animals on a big boat. That’s ridiculous mythological kid stuff, right? After all, it’s impossible! There isn’t enough water on the Earth to flood the Earth. At least that’s how most “intellectuals” treat the story of the world’s accountability for sin and God’s ability to judge both.
And yet, the Bible never ceases to amaze me when it comes to the little details which were recorded long, long before “modern-day” science even thought of knowing such, much less observing it.
For example, remember those fountains of the great deep that were broken up? Listen to this excerpt from a newly published study entitled, Deepest water found 1000km down, a third of way to Earth’s core: Continue reading
If the Bible contradicts itself, infidels think they’re free from religion! One writes: “The flood story is really two interwoven stories that contradict each other on how many of each kind of animal are to be brought into the Ark–is it one pair each or seven pairs each of the “clean” ones?” (Jim Meritt, “A List of Biblical Contradictions, 1992, http://infidels.org/library/modern/jim_meritt/bible-contradictions.html). Since God drew a line between “clean” and “unclean” animals, and determined a different total for each, where is the “contradiction?” The Bible clearly says the animals were brought into the ark by twos, “male and female” (Genesis 6:19 NKJV), specifying Noah should, “take with you seven each of every clean animal, a male and his female; two each of animals that are unclean, a male and his female” (Genesis 7:2 NKJV). That’s 7 pairs of clean and 1 pair of unclean animals. Maybe infidels simply can’t count!
