Dispelling erroneous earth philosophy is a “Deep” subject. We need to be diligent in what we say about the Earth. There is many erroneous theories about the earth. These theories talk about its origin, shape, and other things about this awesome planet we call home in the vastness of the universe. We as Christians are to beware of man’s philosophy on the origin of the earth (Colossians 2:8). We must trust in God’s Word the Holy Bible (KJV) to understand the awesomeness of the origin of the Earth.
First of all, the Earth was not made over billions of years ago, according to the Planetesimal Theory, which states that the Earth over a long period of time was made from lumps of matter which became a molten mass, which later cooled. According to the Bible, the Earth was created by God in one day and covered with water (Genesis 1:1-2). The earth was not molten for billions of years. It was water covered from the very beginning of creation. This is when God started His creative acts on the Earth to make it inhabitable for biological life and His ultimate creation called man (Isaiah 45:18).
Earth’s atmosphere was created in one day (Genesis 1:6-8) and not over millions upon millions of years. On the second day of creation week God separated the waters covering the Earth and put an atmosphere in between the waters. The Earth is the only planet in our solar system with such an atmosphere that has abundant oxygen and water to sustain biological life. God made this planet spherical and not flat (Isaiah 40:22). A flat earth would have a problem maintaining an atmosphere of any kind. Just look at the satellite photos of Earth and all the other planets in our solar system. Not one is flat but spherical like a ball. The Flat Earth Society needs to take take a long deep look at these photographs, because they match what God said about the Earth He created (Isaiah 40:22).
Earth is quite young and not old according to secular geologists. The sedimentary rock layers which secularists call the Geologic Column does not give us long geologic eras on the Earth, but were laid down by a year long flood of Genesis 6-9. Evidence that these layers were laid down quickly and recently are the polystrate fossils they are finding of trees and other organisms that are found going through many layers of rock. If each of these layers are millions of years old, the tree would of rot away long before the next layer of sediment was laid down. These trees were buried rapidly by water borne sediments that covered them completely and later turned them into fossils, when the sediments turn to rock, producing the fossil record. These fossilized trees when unearthed are standing upright through many layers of sedimentary rock. Polystrate fossil trees are found all around the world indicating a catastrophic event of global proportions. A worldwide flood of Genesis 6-9, which buried these trees gives us the best explanation for polystrate fossils.
Here is another thing that dispels long geologic eras (Paleozoic, Mesozoic, and Cenozoic Eras) and gives evidence for a recent creation and worldwide flood. Paleontologists are discovering “soft tissue” within fossilized dinosaur bones. This soft tissue could not of survived for millions of years. Thousands of years seems more possible. Secular paleontologists found soft tissue in a Tyrannosaurus rex femur bone. This soft tissue was pliable blood vessels contained within the bone. These original dinosaur tissues, cells, and proteins fit the Scripture’s testimony of a world that is just thousands of years old. This most significant features of dinosaur fossils confirm creation and the worldwide flood.
We as Christians must “earnestly contend for the faith” and heed the Scripture in Colossians 2:8. “Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.”
