Have We Forgotten Who God Is?

A prominent progressive creationist “…repeatedly makes the claim that life COULD NOT exist unless the universe was about 14 billion years old ... He further said, “…it is impossible for God to have created everything in six days of approximately 24 hours each …” (The ‘God’ of the Big Bang is NOT the God of the Bible! by Tim Chaffey).

“Let’s face it, there was a bishop … who added up the dates listed in Genesis and he came up with the world had been around for 6,000 years … There ain’t no way that’s possible … To say that it all came about in 6,000 years is just nonsense and I think it’s time we come off of that stuff and say this isn’t possible. We’ve got to be realistic that the dating of Bishop Ussher just doesn’t comport with anything that’s found in science … and you can’t just totally deny the geological formations that are out there. Let’s be real … let’s not make a joke of ourselves” (Pat Robertson).

Whatever the Lord pleases He does, In heaven and in earth, In the seas and in all deep places (Psalm 135:6, NKJV).  But our God is in heaven; He does whatever He pleases (Psalm 115:3).

It is dangerous ground to tell God what He can and cannot do, and it is also dangerous ground to assume that God lied to us when He told us what He did.

"When Moses writes that God created Heaven and Earth and whatever is in them in six days, then let this period continue to have been six days ... if you cannot understand how this could be done in six days, then grant the Holy Spirit the honor of being more learned than you are" (Martin Luther).

"Have we forgotten who He is? Behold, All nations before Him are as nothing; and they are counted to Him less than nothing, and vanity. To whom will ye liken God? (Isaiah 40;17-18)." (The Sovereignty of God, by Arthur W. Pink).

I welcome your comments. However, since this is a blog rather than an open forum, I will determine what is and what is not posted. All comments, especially anonymous comments, will be scrutinized carefully. I will not post comments that contain profanity or are negative toward the Scriptures, God, Christianity in general, Christian schools, or the United States of America. I also will not post comments that are nothing more than generally uninformed or absurd opinions. In addition, I will not post comments that are totally irrelevant to the subject being discussed. Finally, I will not post comments that are commercial advertisements or advertisements for religious organizations which are in conflict with my biblical convictions.
