Those fountains of the great deep

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

Do Atheists Believe in Miracles?

Atheism’s Contradictory Supernatural “Natural” Explanations

Atheism contends that a supernatural Creator does not exist. Allegedly, a supernatural Being is unnecessary in our material Universe. Everything can be explained purely naturally through a study of the natural world. In short, nature exists “naturally,” not supernaturally.  Read >>

5-28-2015 God versus “Climate Change #3

Paul warned: “O Timothy! Guard what was committed to your trust, avoiding the profane and idle babblings and contradictions of what is falsely called knowledge– by professing it some have strayed concerning the faith (1 Timothy 6:20-21 NKJV). “Climate Change” is one of the recent “contradictions of what is falsely called knowledge.” Science can only deal in what may be demonstrated, and the age of the Earth and weather patterns cannot be demonstrated but merely “guesstimated.” “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen” (Hebrews 11:1 NKJV). “Climate Change” has no “evidence,” but only wild guesses and estimates to support it. “Climate Change” is founded upon “blind faith” but the Bible faith has factual “evidence” to support it! If “the blind leads the blind, both will fall into a ditch” (Matthew 15:14).

Atheists may end up believing in an eternal creator after all

There was no big bang that created the universe.

That’s not a Christian saying that either (although I agree with the statement on its surface). According to this proposed scientific theory, the universe is eternal!

All that scientific cozying up to the big bang for nothing!?

But the greatest irony of the story’s conclusion, at least to me, is that atheists may end up believing in an eternal creator after all. How interesting.

2-20-2015           Science Depends Upon “Faith”

Scientific conclusions stated as fact can be a matter of “faith” because “faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen” (Hebrews 11:1 NKJV). Science says “no two snowflakes are alike.” Have they examined every snowflake that has fallen on us this week? No. But every snowflake they have examined is different, therefore a reasonable conclusion is “no two snowflakes are alike.” The evidence they have points to a conclusion beyond their sight. That’s exactly how we know God exists: the overwhelming evidence we have demands the conclusion that only God could have done it. “He who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him” (Hebrews 11:6 NKJV). Make sure your “faith” has facts first.

3 Good Reasons to Believe the Bible is from God – Apologetics Press

The Bible is the most popular book that has ever been printed. It was one of the first books mass produced on Gutenberg’s printing press in 1455. To estimate a total number of Bibles and portions of it that have been produced and distributed worldwide throughout history would be virtually impossible, but the number stands well over 10 billion, since the United Bible Society alone has distributed over nine billion in the past 70 years (“God Facts,” n.d.). Without dispute, the Bible is the best selling book of all time worldwide (“Best Selling…,” 2014).
