Come on Pat, Don't Be Ridiculous!!!
Recently, Ken Ham of the Back to Genesis Creation Institute held a debate with Brian Nye the science guy. Afterwards Pat Robertson criticized Ham, who through years of study, has used science to demonstrate how in fact it does support a literal 6-day creation and 6,000 year old timeline.
So Pat... do you not believe the Word of God??? Through your simple and rash statement, you denied much of the teaching of the New Testament. Believe in a Theistic Evolution and a Biblical Faith ARE NOT COMPATIBLE! The Bible says so itself. Only Science (i.e. knowledge) that starts with Yhwh as the Creator (Pr.1:7) and the first building block, can be viewed as true to reality in God's order!
Robertson argued that there’s too much scientific evidence in the world to assert the world is thousands, and not billions, of years old. He said, “To say that it all came about in 6000 years is just nonsense, and I think it’s time we come off of that stuff and say this is impossible.”
He implored fellow believers in God, “Let’s be real, let’s not make a joke of ourselves.” Robertson made it clear he still doesn’t believe in “so-called evolution,” but it doesn’t shake his faith one bit to have “progressive evolution” under the control of God.
Pat, what you have just done is drawn a line buddy in the Evangelical camp. There is a great "scientific deception" (i.e., creation by E.T.s on big UFOs), and you have just given those who don't believe God's word is literally true, the green light to attack Christ-followers who do! Even God, the founder of our faith, incarnated as Yeshua ben Josef, said, "Your Word (i.e. the Jewish Tanakh) is truth" (Jn. 17:17)
Pat has come out and shown His true colors! He does not believe in a literal six-day creation, but rather a (non-scientific) belief in punctuated evolution where God steps in a points and directs our evolution! Pat... in all your profound wisdom, you have set yourself up to agree with the "Aliens" of the occultic History Channel's Ancient Aliens! They claim to BE OUR CREATORS! They teach, through the likes of so-called Ancient-Astronaut "experts," that they planted our seed on this planet, and stepped in at various times throughout human history/evolution to "direct our evolution."
You have opened the trap door for all the Christians and "Christians" who follow you to fall into Satan's age-old deception coming on the earth! Way to go!
Yes, Pat's comments have got me hot! Millions of believers done through time have given their lives in defense of God's literal word, and belief in it. In just a couple of minutes you undermined and cast scorn on all of the Protestant Reformers and have aligned yourself with the Apostate Whore of Rome, which thinks it can change the eternal, unchangeable Word of God!
Now, let's look at some of the Biblical reasons what you said is beyond Ridiculous Pat! First off, what is Science? Science is the Latin term for knowledge, which begs the question, "Who's knowledge?" Well, mankind's. Based on Men's observation of nature and the laws through which it operates.
The supposed scientific "enlightenment" came about when men (no longer enslaved to the spirits behind trees and rocks and nature) realized that they could learn and discover facts about the world around them through the study and observation of nature. This is still true today.
What is knowledge? Things that we can know. Scripture tells us that the beginning of knowledge is the fear of the Lord (Prov. 1:7). Modern academic Science, taught in our schools to our children, operates apart from (that is, starts without) a belief in or knowledge of the God of the Bible. "Science", or "man's knowledge" has led to be one of the greatest stumbling blocks to faith in Creation and Christianity, this salvation. The Apostle Paul tells us that "knowledge makes arrogant (puffs up) while love (agape, based on God's True revelation) builds up!
Evolution, punctuated or not, teaches that life developed (though the scientific law of Entropy totally refutes Macro-Evolution) through billions of years of suffering and death, while God's revelation teaches that Man was created by God on the sixth literal, 24 hour day of creation, and that death and suffering were no where to be found, until Eve was deceived by that crafty Quetzl-Coatl, Lucifer, who deceived her by appealing to the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the boastful pride of life (Gen. 3:1-6; 1 John 2:16)
The Bible says that the Wages of Sin is Death (Rom. 3:23)! Sin and suffering were not part of God's creation! That would mean that God created a world that was filled with death, suffering, abortive evolutionary attempts and violence for millions (or billions, depending on whose guessing scale of measure you use) of years. That is not compatible with a Biblical Faith Pat! You need to check yourself! You are worshiping an edifice of Man, and not the God of the Bible!
Not only that... if that is not enough, it also informs knowledgeable people of faith in Romans 5:12:
through one man sin entered into the world, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men, because all sinned—
Not only that, but Yeshua Himself believed in a literal 6 day creation and a literal Adam and Eve who were IN THE BEGINNING! (Mk. 10:7-9). You have the genealogy of the GOSPEL of Luke, which teaches a literal YOUNG-EARTH, 6,000 year record (Luke 3:38).
Nevertheless death reigned from Adam until Moses, even over those who had not sinned in the likeness of the offense of Adam, who is a type of Him who was to come.
1 Corinthians 15:22
For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ all will be made alive.
1 Corinthians 15:45
So also it is written, “The first man, Adam, became a living soul.” The last Adam became a life-giving spirit.
1 Timothy 2:13
For it was Adam who was first created, and then Eve.
1 Timothy 2:14
And it was not Adam who was deceived, but the woman being deceived, fell into transgression.
It was also about these men that Enoch, in the seventh generation from Adam, prophesied, saying, “Behold, the Lord came with many thousands of His holy ones,
Ken Ham through his life and work defends Biblical Truth and Inerrancy, and his ministry is pleasing to God! Your mistaken notions have and are leading many astray, and are being used of the Evil One to bring about this great deception on planet Earth, and set the stage of a great persecution of Biblical believers by so called Christians! But we will all stand before God!
