CONTEXT: Paul in writing to the church at Colossae begins, after his normal salutations, with the Supremacy of Christ, v.13-23. He focuses on two main issues the preeminence or supremacy of Christ in Creation v.13-17 and Redemption v.18-23.
Our text today deals with the first theme and is a clear Biblical truth of who and how the earth and heavens were created, For by him were all things created…
Yet as noted in yesterday’s devotional, where we look at the Theory of Evelution, many still try to argue against these facts. Today let us explore the “Big Bang Theory” (not the TV show, I didn’t know it existed) and its unbiblical foundations.
CONTEXT: Genesis 6 & 7 are of course the Biblical account of the Great (Noahtic) Flood. Here in Chapter 8, we begin to see the restoration of the earth as the floodwaters recede. Our text today is the final verse of this chapter and is the great promise of God to never again flood the earth as in these days.
I chose this text today for a few simple reasons, first, only God could bring the flood as described not only in the Bible but in many other cultures. Second only the omnipotent God of all creation could dry out the land and hold make such a promise.
Yet many still cling to Darwin, Dawkins, and the Theory of Carbon Dating as gospel. Here today I want to debunk some of these theories, which many so-called evangelicals in recent years have claimed have merit.
Let me make it clear the Theory of Evolution is just that a non-factual theory, the Holy Word of God is a Fact! As True Christians, we MUST believe the Word of God is true.
CONTEXT: Creation, Sovereignty of God in Creation and as Creator, and God worthiness to be praised are all themes in Chapter 1. Matthew Henry breaks it down as follows: We have three things in this chapter:—I. A general idea given us of the work of creation (v. 1, 2). II. A particular account of the several days’ work, registered, as in a journal, distinctly and in order. The creation of the light the first day (v. 3-5); of the firmament the second day (v. 6-8); of the sea, the earth, and its fruits, the third day (v. 9-13); of the lights of heaven the fourth day (v. 14-19); of the fish and fowl the fifth day (v. 20-23); of the beasts (v. 24, 25); of man (v. 26-28); and of food for both the sixth day (v. 29, 30). III. The review and approbation of the whole work (v. 31).
For as long as I can remember the debate of whether or not the earth is “old or new” has been going on. Traditionally Christians ALWAYS took the Biblical position of new earth, that is 4-10 thousand years old. Yet in recent years more and more “Christians” seem willing to COMPROMISE and take the position of an old or older earth.
In the beginning God created… it seems in recent years, no words can spark more controversy in an everyday conversation than these unless of course, it is those found in v.27So God created man.
In yesterday’s devotional, we spoke about how Satan in his deviousness is really attacking God. Those attacks play out through man’s denial of the Godhead and God’s sovereignty in all creation. These folks deny not only biblical truths but logic and scientific evidence. Both, the THEORY of Evolution and Old Earth Science have been greatly discredited in the past 20 years. Nevertheless, the so-called “atheistic” (I believe they are a religion unto themselves) community refuses to accept even a hint of God.
Here are some Biblical Resources to fight the good fight in this area of Apolgetics:
As many of you know we just returned from Puerto Rico having to handle the passing unto glory of my mother-in-law. Her death got me thinking about the other end of the spectrum, especially yesterday while traveling back and hearing the conversation between two young folks talking about evolution.
God’s Word is truth, Evolution is a theory and up until the early 20th century a theory was considered nothing more than simple speculation.Modernists have worked hard to change the definition to have more substance but the truth is the meat of the matter is still nothing more than speculation.
Whose WORDS are you trusting in today?

One of the very first things Joe Biden has promised to do as president is abolish girls’ sports. It’s a ludicrous thing to make a priority, but the former Obama VPinsists — like most liberals — that “transgender equality is the civil rights issue of our time.” It’s the fair thing to do, Biden argues. But is it? New research in the British Journal of Sports Medicine says no…
Among all the other wonderful blessings of Christmas, at its core, this season is a celebration of the gift of life through the birth of a baby. Of course, any time a baby is born it’s a glorious event worthy of a decent party. My wife and I have 4 children, and our friends and family have greeted each birth with joy and excitement, and rightly so. ..
