For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: Who created heaven and earth?
Here are the two answers which the skeptic believes indicate a Bible contradiction:
God the Father did it all by himself.
“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” (Genesis 1:1)
“Thus says the Lord, your Redeemer, and the one who formed you from the womb, “I, the Lord, am the maker of all things, Stretching out the heavens by Myself And spreading out the earth all alone,” (Isaiah 44:24)
Jesus did it.
“There came a man sent from God, whose name was John. 7 He came as a witness, to testify about the Light, so that all might believe through him. 8 He was not the Light, but he came to testify about the Light. 9 There was the true Light which, coming into…
Mount Kaya, which is called Kayasan, is also known as Kofuji (Little Fuji) because of its slight resemblance to Mt. Fuji (3,776 meters). This mountain is approximately one twenty-fourth the size of Mount Everest (8,848 meters).
On October 31st, 2018, which was Reformation Day, Dad, bro, and I went hiking on Kayasan. (I could have written this before, but I wanted to save this for later. Depends on the mood. 🙂 ) Mom stayed home because she had to do housework.
Dad climbed Mount Fuji with Mom’s brother when I was a baby, by the way. Mom and baby me stayed in the car while they hiked. 👶
We met a few people on the way, including an elderly Japanese man who could speak English. He said, in English, that there are some souvenirs waiting for us at the top of the mountain. On one of our breaks, at an “arbor”, we met another elderly man with glasses, a gray sweatshirt, and gray trousers, who came talking to us in a friendly way. (It was hard for us to speak, since we were almost out of breath). He went up first.
And so for about an hour we huffed and puffed, exerted our strength, and made our way up the mountain little by little. (I think this is my second or third time I climbed this mountain, the first time being when I was five or six years old).
And after many huffs and puffs and eeks and yeows (Well, OK, no “eeks” or “yeows”, ’cause we ain’t climbing Mount Doom…), we reached the top…
Dad, bro, and I looked at the nice view from the top of the mountain and sat on a bench to rest our aching legs. We ate mini Haribos, and yup, those were the best tasting Haribos I’ve ever eaten in my whole life!
According to Dad, the best tasting coffee he ever tasted was on top of a mountain. I like to drink coffee, especially in the morning. My favorite coffee blend is the Kilimanjaro Blend, but really, this has nothing to do with the topic…
So going back to the hiking story, we were about to leave, when the man with glasses told us to wait for a few moments and he gave us nice free Kayasan pendants that he made out of wood.
He had probably about a hundred of wooden pendants in a box. In the picture above the picture above, you can see him with the box of his handmade souvenirs.
After that we said “Thank you!!” to the kind man and climbed down the mountain.
Altogether it took us about an hour and a half to climb up and down the mountain. We walked about 1,850 meters both ways (approximately 4 kilometers altogether).
When we finally came back to the starting point, we thanked God for keeping us safe on our way and for letting us enjoy the nature that He created for us. We had a wonderful time climbing the mountain and we hope to do it again some other time… maybe a different mountain. 😎
“Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever thou hadst formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, thou art God.” — Psalm 90:2
Thanks a lot for viewing!! Hope you have a great day!!! ✨😊👍✨
Yesterday, October 2nd, I rode my bike in the nice countryside near my house. I don’t often go cycling, but I always have a good time when I ride my bike. I was able to enjoy the beautiful Creation that God has made for us. As I rode, I passed many pretty flowers, rice fields, and a river, and I saw quite a few dragonflies and other bugs. Nothing in particular happened, except for a dragonfly hitting my left shoulder. But on a different trip, on September 27th, I was just starting to go through a small tunnel, when right in front of me passed a pale green snake with one or two yellow stripes. I had to squeeze the brakes abruptly, and the snake just slithered past me without even saying a word of apology. Well, I guess things like that make the bike trips even better.
“In the beginning, God created the heaven and the earth.”- Genesis 1:1
It says in the Bible that in the beginning of the world (approximately 6,000 years ago), God created everything in the universe. All Christians believe this true fact. We can see evidences of Creation all around us; animals, nature, people, and many other things! God created everything out of nothing: He just said the words and they were created, and only in six days! Day 1: God created the light and called the light Day and called the darkness Night; Day 2: God made the firmament and water; Day 3: God created land, which he called Earth, and created every kind of plant; Day 4: God made the sun, moon, stars, and planets; Day 5: God created all the birds and sea creatures; and on Day 6: God created all the land dwelling animals and best of all… He created man! At that time, everything was perfect, absolutely perfect, without no sin. But when the first people, Adam and Eve, our very first ancestors, sinned against God when they ate the forbidden fruit that God told them not to eat, and obeyed the Devil, Satan, instead, Sin entered into the world. And that was when everything went bad. Then about 4,000 years ago, God decided to flood the whole Earth because of the wickedness of the people, and chose to save only eight Godly people: Noah, his wife, their three sons, and their sons’ wives. He commanded Noah to build an Ark to save his family. We are all descendants of Noah’s sons. (As we all know.)
People, by nature, don’t want to think that God created them and everything else, so they try to make up their own idea about the beginning of the world: Evolution. People who believe in this hoax, the biggest lie, think that everything came into existence millions of years ago through a “Big Bang”. They are saying that in the beginning there was nothing… AND THEN IT EXPLODED!! And after that things started “evolving”, they think. (Yeah, right, then why are there still monkeys around???) They think they have evidence that proves they are right, but instead those so called evidences prove them wrong! For example, the Grand Canyon is the evidence of the Great Flood, which proves the Bible is right. Fossils also prove that the world-wide Flood was a real event. After all, explosions don’t create perfectly round balls in space, any form of life, etc. Explosions only destroy things, not make things — obviously… and if Evolution was true, then I wonder why the Earth, sun, moon, and planets all came to the right place???
What the evolutionists are doing is that they are refusing to acknowledge God as the Creator of the world, the Creator who sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to die on the cross for the sins of His chosen people about 2,000 years ago. He needs to be honored and obeyed as our Creator and Saviour, not forgotten. He has given us a Way to eternal salvation. Acts 16:31 states: “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and you shall be saved!” “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”(1 John 1:9)
But how about us Christians? We believe that “In the beginning, God created the heaven and the earth”!!!
“I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived. I did not wish to live what was not life, living is so dear; nor did I wish to practise resignation, unless it was quite necessary. I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life, to live so sturdily and Spartan-like as to put to rout all that was not life, to cut a broad swath and shave close, to drive life into a corner, and reduce it to its lowest terms...”
