The YEC view is that basically the earth is 6-10000 years old. Answers in Genesis list 10 strong evidences for this here.
These are basically the following
#1 Very Little Sediment on the Seafloor
#2 Bent Rock Layers
#3 Soft Tissue in Fossils
#4 Faint Sun Paradox
#5 Rapidly Decaying Magnetic Field
#6 Helium in Radioactive Rocks
#7 Carbon-14 in Fossils, Coal, and Diamonds
#8 Short-Lived Comets
#9 Very Little Salt in the Sea
#10 DNA in “Ancient” Bacteria
How would those of you who believe in an Old Earth counter these arguments?
How do Catholics see Protestants?
Catholic documents say
"The Church knows that she is joined in many ways to the baptised who are honoured by the name of Christian, but do not profess the Catholic faith in its entirety or have not preserved unity or communion under the successor of Peter."
"who believe in Christ and have been properly baptised are put in a certain, although imperfect, communion with the Catholic Church."
Protestants say all sorts of things about Catholics - there is no single Protestant view.
The Bible teaches that a person is saved when they hear the gospel and respond with repentance and true belief in Jesus Christ (Ephesians 1:13). It also teaches that belief in Jesus is the only way to salvation (John 14:6; Acts 4:12). Those who have been saved long to see others also saved. This often results in wrestling with a difficult question:
What happens to those who haven’t heard the Good News about Jesus?
Sometimes people try to use this question as a type of rhetorical weapon to demonstrate that Jesus can’t possibly be the only way of salvation. Oprah, echoing the thoughts of many before her, once asked the question in this way, as you can see in this 2 minute video clip (sorry, the picture is somewhat fuzzy, but the sound...
John Nelson Darby came to America around the time of the Civil War and brought the Two Peoples of God doctrine of modern Dispensational Theology to our nation.
The doctrine was later incorporated into the notes of the Scofield Reference Bible.
After that time, the doctrine spread like a virus through the modern evangelical Church.
Some people sitting in modern Southern Baptist churches have never heard anything else.
Dispensational preachers like John Hagee and Dr. David Jeremiah dominate much of Christian television in the United States.
The doctrine claims that at some future point in time modern descendants of Jacob will come to salvation outside of the Church.
Today millions of Christians all over the world support the cause...
both remove the freedom of the soul and thus render it as a non-entity and this is against Gods plan since love requires freedom and freedom implies that change is always possible.
Hello, I have been married to my husband for 3 1/2 years and we have an almost 3 year old son. I was 19 years old when I started dating him. The way we met I knew would potentially cause us problems in the future because my husband is my ex-brother in laws cousin. Sounds confusing I know,at the time my sister was married to my brother in law, and my brother in law introduced me to his cousin who is now my husband. The reason I said I knew our relationship would bring problems in the future is because my sister is now divorced. But my husband still talks to his cousin, and so do I. My sister and my family do not approve of this of course but that is a different story. When I started dating my husband he was in the process of enlisting...
So, I have been dating this girl for almost 11 months now and it's been amazing. She's a real blessing to me. Anyway, she recently told me about something that I'm not sure how to take. She told me that she can never have children because she has CAIS, or Complete Androgen Insensitivity Syndrome. If you are not familiar with this, it means that she actually is genetically male, but because her body cannot process androgens, she externally developed female and was declared female at birth. However, internally she has no uterus, ovaries, never had a period, etc.
First, I'm not in a sinful relationship, right? I'm a Side B Christian and believe, or thought I did, that sex is determined by genetics. However, now I'm not sure....
My daughter recently established a Photography business. She has worked with another person in this business for about a year. Before that it has been her plans to eventually have her own business. She is a devout Christian who understands God's Word to say that homosexuality is not an acceptable lifestyle but rather a sinful one as many other things are. She believes in loving the sinner but NOT their sin including not accepting it. I am concerned for her as it is obvious how the LGtB group seeks out opportunities to attack Christian businesses which they can trap the owners into saying things of which they attempt to further their agenda in courts and destroy the business. She needs the money for the family. Any good advice about how...
