You’ve Heard of the Patience of Job

"Cry louder ... maybe he is in deep thought; maybe he has excused himself; perhaps he is out of town; perchance he is asleep and must be awakened." Accordingly, Elijah taunted the prophets of Baal. They cried from the morning to the middle of the afternoon in a frenzied display of paganism. The inspired narrative concludes, "But there was no ... read more »

Is the Language of Genesis 1 Merely Metaphorical?

Hugh Ross is affiliated with an organization in southern California called Reasons to Believe. While he professes to be a defender of the Genesis record, he actually is one of the nation's foremost compromisers with reference to the scriptural doctrine of creation. Ross is totally committed to attempting a harmony between Genesis 1 and evolutionary chronology, i.e., the notion the ... read more »

Does the Bible Refer to UFOs?

Could you explain the reference in the book of Ezekiel chapter one about the "wheel within a wheel"? Some say that this is an allusion to ancient visitors to the Earth in "flying saucers." In recent times a few radical sensationalists have contended that centuries ago Earth was visited by space beings from distant planets. It has been alleged that ... read more »

The Creation “Days” – Literal or Figurative?

Dr. George Wald of Harvard University was a militant proponent of the theory of evolution. He was, though, at least honest enough to admit that the theory was fraught with some very serious difficulties. These problems, however, in Wald's view, were not insurmountable. He solved some of the "impossibilities" by appealing to time. Time itself, he said, "performs the miracles." ... read more »

Genesis 1 and Dinosaurs

Did dinosaurs and men live upon the ancient earth together? Creationists answer this question affirmatively, based upon the clear testimony of the Scriptures-and no solid evidence to the contrary. The disciples of Darwin argue negatively, contending that dinosaurs faded from the "geologic column" some sixty-five million years before humankind evolved from a lower form of life. Unfortunately, many within the ... read more »

Exodus 20:8-11 – The Creation Days: Literal Days or Ages?

Eons of time are absolutely essential to the theory of evolution. Robert Jastrow, an evolutionist, says: "The key to Darwin's explanation is time." (p. 112). Those who are intimidated by evolutionary propaganda attempt to find some way to fit the coveted "time" into the biblical record of creation. One of the ways this feat is attempted is by arguing that ... read more »

Psalm 19, Scientifically Accurate

About a thousand years before Christ, David announced: "The heavens declare the glory of God and the firmament showeth his handiwork" (Psa. 19:1). The amazing universe reveals the glory of God in that: - It shows his power. The universe is vast; it is estimated to be 20 billion light-years across. That is the distance light would travel in 20 ... read more »

James 1:17 – The Shadow Cast by Turning

One of the traits of God is that of His immutability. He is stable - unchanging in His nature (Malachi 3:6; Hebrews 13:8). In illustrating this quality of the Creator, James writes: ". . . with whom [God] can be no variation, neither shadow that is cast by turning" (1:17). Nature changes, but Jehovah does not. Of special interest here, ... read more »

When the Creation Is Delivered

In a marvelous passage designed to provide comfort for afflicted children of God, Paul affirms that the "sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed to us-ward" (Romans 8:18). He continues by suggesting that "the creation," with great anticipation, awaits the revealing of God's children (vv. 19-23). He notes that ... read more »

Why Do Natural Disasters Happen?

On December 26, 2004, a violent earthquake in the Indian Ocean off of the western coast of northern Sumatra (of the magnitude of 9 on a scale of 12), initiated several tsunamis (tidal waves) that have taken more than 200,000 lives.
