Older...or is it??

Today is 5 Minute Friday, a time to write on a one word subject for 5 minutes, no editing allowed. I love this day, its fun to see where a certain word will take me!

Today's word is OLDER...


When I first saw the word today I was stumped about what to write about, older, how does that tie into the Bible. In school, on the news, in the media we are bombarded with this statement....the earth is older than several million years.

The earth is NOT older than several million years, it is not older than a million years, it is not older than 500,000 years. No the earth is not older than most people think. I believe it to be around 5 or 6 thousand years old.

I love Genesis, it is the basis for everything, it is the book of beginnings. God lists genealogies in there and according to the Bible the earth can not possibly be that old! I believe the Bible, it tells the truth, when it says the earth was created in 7 days, I believe it was created in 7 days. There was no evolution, God created everything and it was very good, He didn't need millions of year to get it right, just 7 days! So don't buy into the earth being older than it is!


"And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day".
Genesis 1:5
