Is the earth and universe old? Are there scientific evidences that can prove this?
Recently I started a thread examining evidences supplied by Answers in Genesis about a young earth. There were a lot of responses and discussions and I found overall that the science could neither persuade or dissuade me from a conviction that we live in a young universe which is in essence based on the bible and a belief in miracles.
But 2 arguments for an old universe really bother me.
1) Overlapping tree rings. Radagast used this one in the aforementioned thread. While the oldest tree trunk on which tree rings have been counted reaches only 5000 years. When you compare patterns of fossilised tree trunks from dead trees in the same forest you can go...
Repentance is Not a Change of Mind.
Many think that just believing in Jesus as one's Savior and that He died and had risen on their behalf is "repentance" (i.e. a change of mind or belief in the gospel). While we must believe in the gospel and Jesus Christ as our Savior, that is not "repentance." If we were to look for the definition for the word "repentance", it cannot be found by looking at a Lexicon or some dead language that we did not grow up writing or speaking. Repentance can easily be defined by reading the Bible in your own language and by looking at the context.
What is Repentance?
Jesus defined repentance for us.
He said in Matthew 12:41 that the Ninevites will rise up in Judgment against this generation because they...

Hello all this is my first time here. I'm a 20 year old guy a college student. I've never had a girlfriend and don't expect to ever get married because I've always been incredibly shy and rather strange. Currently I'm a virgin and expect to remain so for the rest of my life. The college I go to is a secular college because it's much less expensive but I have a really great friend who happens to be a girl. She's a really devout Christian and so we get along well together. She's sooo pretty too she's got blue eyes and strawberry blonde hair and has a really nice and kind personality. She's a great friend to me and we hang out a lot. Trouble is I can't keep my mind from drifting toward sinful thoughts about her. Often I imagine hugging...
Okay so I'm playing this game on Kongregate. Its called Dungeon Crusher. In this game there are heroes that you can pay real $$$ for that are made up gods. And whenever people refer to them they refer to them as "the gods". This extremely bugs me because I only believe in one God and I think that all people should believe in the same God I do. This game is also completely full of atheists who blaspheme the name of our Lord 50,000 times a day and they keep saying things like "the gods be willing rngesus will give you the drop you need". I find it SO offensive! Then they went on when I got offended and said that people used to sacrifice animals to Jesus so why not sacrifice other things to hope that they get the drop they need? Then I go...
With the passage of the GOP tax bill this week, the Trump administration has scored 81 major achievements in its first year, making good on campaign promises to provide significant tax cuts, boost U.S. energy production, and restore respect to the United States, according to the White House.
And along the way, President Trump even outdid his own expectations and slashed at least 11 major legacy items of former President Barack Obama, including cracking down on the open border, slowing recognition of communist Cuba and effectively killing Obamacare by ending the mandate that everyone have health insurance or face a tax.
For a list of major accomplishments Trump has filled in his first year please click the link below:
