>Isn’t New Moon Just Creepy??? – Theology Forum | Theology Online

>Referring to a popular television show, New Moon: a show where a young teenage girl becomes infatuated with a 100 year old vampire, someone posted a legitimate question:

The idea of a 100+ year man dating a teenage girl is universally seen as very creepy. Why isn’t a teenage girl dating a 100+ year old vampire seen as even much more creepy! Why is this seen as romantic by millions of women and girls?

Rather than give an answer based upon my personal opinion, I responded with God’s Word:

Genesis 6:5
(5) And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.

Job 15:16
(16) How much more abominable and filthy is man, which drinketh iniquity like water?

Psalms 53:1-3
(1) To the chief Musician upon Mahalath, Maschil, A Psalm of David. The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. Corrupt are they, and have done abominable iniquity: there is none that doeth good.
(2) God looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, that did seek God.
(3) Every one of them is gone back: they are altogether become filthy; there is none that doeth good, no, not one.

Jeremiah 17:9
(9) The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?

1 John 1:8
(8) If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.

Conclusion: God’s Word reveals that Man is wicked. Sin so permeates our lives and minds that many times, we don’t always see its corruption. This television show is wicked. A born-again child of God has no use for such evil.

>Evidence the Earth is not Necessarily Old – Sedimentary Layers – Theology Forum | Theology Online

The easiest way to delete millions of years from geological history is to recognise the contact between two sedimentary layers for what it is. If the contact surface is flat that is powerful evidence that the upper layer was deposited immediately after the lower one. If any significant length of time separated the depositional events then the boundary would be eroded and not flat.

A second easy means to delete millions of unnecessary years from the geological record is to recognise that a graded bed must have been deposited all at once. A graded sedimentary layer is most easily explained by a single event that has sorted the entire layer.

A third easy way to delete millions of years from the geological record is to recognise that deposits of high purity were deposited quickly. There is no slow mechanism that might account for a depositional layer constructed almost entirely of only one source material.

These are three simple and powerful ideas that negate the popular requirement that one must believe rocks took millions of years to form.

The problem is not the empirical data but the presuppositions that are used to interpret the data.

Good post.

I cannot agree more with this article on defining “Days” in Genesis 1.

Many individuals interpret the word “day” in Genesis 1 to mean a broad period of time. This is called Evolutionary Theology, which concludes that science is correct in the idea that the world is millions of years old and that Scripture needs to be reconciled to this belief.

Pastor Dave Jenkins points out that the problem is not in the exegetical definition of the Hebrew word, “Yom”, but in the attempt by others to synchronize the passage of Genesis 1 with the modern views of science.

Good article. Well worth reading.
