About Time?

by Ken Ham
                Did you know that the question of time is vital when defending the historicity of the Bible’s very first book?
                Twenty-five years ago when the classic creationist book The Lie was published, it emphasized that evolutionists need billions of years so they can have enough time for biological evolution to occur. Today, secularists seem to use their belief in a very old age even more than evolution to undermine biblical authority and to explain life without God.
                Of course, the Bible doesn’t even hint at millions or billions of years. In fact, if you take the Word of God as written, it is obvious God created in six literal days. Then, with the specific history given in the genealogies of the Old Testament, it’s very clear that there were only about 4,000 years of history between Adam and Christ.
                Sadly, the secular world has intimidated many Christians into accepting a belief in millions/billions of years. When Christians don’t accept an old earth, they are accused of being anti-intellectual and anti-science. But Christians need not be ashamed. They should study the evidences that support a young earth, but more important, they should stand on the authority of what God has clearly taught us and reject the infallible words of men.
                It’s time for Christians to stand up for God’s Word! answersingenesis.org
