In this post I will use passages from the Bible to prove the FACT, that the world is only 6,000 years old.
Genesis 5. These genealogies cover 10 generations, from Adam to Noah, and reveal that Noah died when the earth was 2006 years old.
Genesis 11:10-32. These genealogies cover 9 generations, from Shem (the son of Noah) to the death of Terah (Abraham’s dad). This genealogy gives the age of the earth at the death of Terah, who was the father of Abraham, as 2081.
Galatians 3:16,17 declares, Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ. 17 And this I say, that the covenant, that was confirmed before of God in Christ, the law, which was four hundred and thirty years after, cannot disannul, that it should make the promise of none effect. As proven in step 2, Abraham received the promise when the world was 2081 years old. Now, add the 430 years spoken of in Galatians 3:16,17 to 2081, and we discover the world was 2511 years old when the law (the Ten Commandments) was given.
Also read Exodus 12:40,41. Now the sojourning of the children of Israel, who dwelt in Egypt, was four hundred and thirty years. 41 And it came to pass at the end of the four hundred and thirty years, even the selfsame day it came to pass, that all the hosts of the LORD went out from the land of Egypt.
Exodus 12:40,41 reveals the sojourn of the children of Israel in Canaan, occurred during the lifetimes of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and in Egypt (see Exodus 6:16-20) spanned the lives of Levi, Kohath, Amram and Moses, lasting 430 years.
I Kings 6:1 states, And it came to pass in the four hundred and eightieth year after the children of Israel were come out of the land of Egypt, in the fourth year of Solomon’s reign over Israel, in the month Zif, which is the second month, that he began to build the house of the LORD. This verse reveals it was 480 years from the time Israel came out of Egypt (the receiving of the ten commandments) until the fourth year of Solomon’s reign.
“We need to know that all things that called science, is not science. Sometimes it’s simply men’s opinions. We need to learn that all true science is in agreement with the Bible. The Bible is not a science book, but because the Bible contains all truth, all true science will be in agreement with the Bible.”
