I believe the earth is young

October 31st was Reformation Day, and committed Christians everywhere spent time remembering Martin Luther’s faithful commitment to the Word of God. It (the Bible), and it alone, is our authority. Nothing else. Not the church. The Word of God. That is where we get the great phrase Sola Scriptura (Scripture Alone).

Well these days, there is much discussion about creation, evolution, and the age of the earth.

I believe the earth is young. I believe the Bible teaches that. And I believe that Jesus believed (or knew) that the earth was young. He created the earth.

In Mark 10:6 while teaching about divorce and referring to creation and the first people, Jesus said “But from the beginning of creation, ‘God made them male and female.'”

In other words, Jesus says Adam & Eve were made at the beginning of creation not some millions of years after creation. At the beginning of creation. And we can trace genealogies back to get a good idea of how old the first people are.

So, I believe the Word. I believe it first and foremost. And I believe it teaches that the earth is young.
