J. Warner Wallace has a new post up and he lists a ton of Bible verses that talk about the beginning of the universe.
I’m going to pick out some of the best ones – ones that will scare the stuffing out of you.
For by Him all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things have been created through Him and for Him. He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together.
By faith we understand that the worlds were prepared by the word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things which are visible.
All things came into being through Him [Jesus], and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being.
1 Corinthians 2:7
No, we declare God’s wisdom, a mystery that has been hidden and that God destined for our glory before time began.
“It is I who made the earth, and created man upon it. I stretched out the heavens with My hands and I ordained all their host.”
All things were created? Time had a beginning? The universe is expanding? Wow, that’s all stuff that naturalists hate – they want their eternal, steady-state universe back. Too bad that’s been falsified by the hydrogen-helium abundance observations. Oh well, I guess they can still believe it if they want to. Now if you’re an atheist, you don’t like what the Bible has to say about the origin of the universe, especially since all the experimental science we have today agrees with the Bible. So atheists aren’t just angry at God, they’re angry at science, too.
The latest Please Convince Me podcast
By the way, J. Warner Wallace’s latest 64-minute podcast on the scientific evidence for the creation of the universe was a must-listen. He re-caps the experimental evidence that we have for a cosmic beginning, and highlights the names of the scientists, the dates of the discoveries, the experiments that were run, and the results that were obtained. He also evaluates naturalistic alternatives to the standard model, and explains what’s wrong with each one.
If you’re into science, then you will love this podcast.
