Today Reminder (Fossils) – 01 August 2017

A reminder for today
Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God: and every one that loveth him that begat loveth him also that is begotten of him. (1 John 5:1)

Evolutionists says that the fossil record speaks for itself and therefore proves evolution. Well first of all evidence like the fossil record does not speak for itself. It is interpreted through a person’s world view like looking through a lens. We all have the same evidence in the present day. The same rock layers and the same fossils. We interpret this evidence in regard to the past through a lens or world view we use. 

An evolutionist will interpret the evidence through what he’s been taught about evolution and millions of years. A biblical creationist will interpret the same fossils differently through the lens of the Bible. Both are looking at the same evidence in the present but both are interpreting it differently.
When we look at the fossil record in the present and interpreting it through the lens of God’s Word we find that what we actually observe in the present confirms the interpretation obtained through the lens of the Bible. 

The best place to start is from the word of someone who has seen everything from the beginning and told us exactly what happened. That someone is God who has given us a written account of the world’s true history in the Bible. Genesis 1:1 says in the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. God’s word tells us that during creation week God created different kinds of animals and plants according to their kinds. The implication is that they will produce after their kinds. 

That is exactly what we see today. An elephant produces and elephant and a dog produces a dog. On the sixth day man and woman were also created and God declared everything very good. It was complete and perfect and there was no death because there was no sin. Later on, we see that man and woman was tempted by the serpent and they rebelled against God and broke His commandment. Then sin and corruption entered the world. In fact, the entire creation was altered and it was no longer in its perfect original state. People and animals began to die, but could gradual death in such a short period of time could account for the fossil record we observe today?

To form a fossil the animal or plant must be covered quickly and since we found billions of fossils all over the world today, something should have killed billions rather quickly. Not to mention we find many fish and other marine fossils at the tops of high mountains. So what in the Bible could account for something like that?

What could cause billions of dead things to be buried in rock layers rapidly laid down by water. In Genesis 6:9 we read the account of the global flood in Noah’s day. Essentially what happened is that men were so corrupt and violent that God selected a righteous man (Noah) and his family to build a huge ark and get in it along with a pair of each land animal kind. The God calls a worldwide flood. Water gushed up from the ground and water fell from the sky. The earth was totally covered and all land dwelling creatures outside the ark were killed. It was a massive and destructive event. After more than a year the waters subsided enough so that Noah and the animals could get out of the ark.
Now what would a worldwide flood to the earth? It would have definitely changed the earth’s terrain. It would have tossed things all around and it would have killed billions of plants and animals burying them all over the earth. So, the fossil records we observe today makes perfect sense within the Biblical worldview. 

So, there you have it. I do hope you have an awesome day and that you will share God’s Word with all those you know and meet. 

Lord, thank you again for all the prove you give us so that the enemy will have no hold on us. You are our God and in you we have life, peace and freedom. Open our eyes to the lies that this world tries to tell us and let us hold on to your Word as our guide and light. In Jesus name. 

Have an awesome day, dear friend of Jesus.
