What it is, and what it is NOT.

This morning I was looking at this website:

https://dailyverses.net

You can click on the TOPICS tab and get multiple verses on that specific topic.

It’s fascinating.

There are verses on marriage, money, friendship, love, poverty, business, relationships, etc.

That wisdom still rings true.

The Bible was written in an era before science, before genetics, archeology, astronomy, etc.

As a Christian I do NOT believe the earth was created in seven days, and anyone who gets their science lessons out of a 2,000 year old document is going to be wrong most of the time.

This is why most people reject Faith; when they hear Christians deny obvious science and try to fit EVERYTHING into the Biblical narrative.

Denying science makes Christians look ignorant and under-educated.

I believe that Darwin was right in his theories of evolution.

I believe in Physics, that the earth was created about 4 billion years ago… I believe that humans have existed as homo sapiens on this planet for the last 200,000 years.

I believe a massive meteor took out the dinosaurs 65 million years ago.

Heck, the dragon myth that pervades ancient Chinese culture probably came from the discovery of dinosaur fossils in China over the last 10,000 years.

I don’t agree with nihilists who think there is no meaning and no purpose to life.

I don’t agree with atheists who think after we die that’s it, lights out, the soul is gone.

I believe in miracles. I held my daughters as infants, today they are 23 and 25 years old, that’s a miracle!

I went to see a friend of mine last week and got to hold his infant son in my arms….

I don’t know how anyone can hold a baby in their arms and NOT believe in miracles.

So… that’s where I’m at, with my FAITH at 48 years old.

I hope that everyone who reads this has a lovely Tuesday.
