young earth or old earth?
young earth or old earth: do answers exist?
I said that the heart of the discussion which my pastor started, when he said to not believe those who say they have answers about young earth or old earth, because they are lying, was the philosophical question, Can man know what is true, and How can man know what is true?
I said the Scriptures answer that question by saying God is truth, and man can know that truth which God has revealed to him.
God is truth:
“And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen His glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth.” Joh 1:14
“I am the way, the truth, and the life.” Joh 14:6
“God is not a man, that He should lie, nor a son of man, that He should repent.” Num 23:19
Man cannot know unrevealed truth:
“For My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways, declares the LORD.” Isa 55:8
“The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately sick; who can understand it?”Jer 17:9
Man can know revealed truth:
“For I know that my Redeemer lives; and at the last He will stand upon the earth.” Job 19:25
“No one has seen God at any time; the only begotten God who is in the bosom of the Father, He has explained Him.” Joh 1:18
“Whoever has seen Me has seen the Father.” Joh 14:9
“For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth. For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. For His invisible attributes, namely, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse.” Rom 1:18-20
If we accept that God is truth, that man cannot know unrevealed truth, but that man can know revealed truth; then we have to ask, has the truth about young earth old or old earth been revealed, and how?
