Eternal Flames

Friday, January 01, 2016
Is there a hell, or do people who don't go to heaven just cease to exist?

 

Sincerely,
In Limbo

Dear In Limbo,

Hell is most definitely a real place.  It is an eternal place where the fire is never quenched and people never die (Mk 9:48).  Jesus talked about hell more than any other prophet before or after Him.  Our God knows the eternal damnation that awaits those that choose not to serve Him (Matt 25:30).  The lost shall dwell in a place of weeping and anger (Matt 24:51).  It would be hard to weep if you didn’t exist.  We wrote a previous article a little while back dealing with this same issue in more detail; feel free to read it here.  Choose today whom you will serve because when we die, we will all face the judgment of God (Heb 9:27).

A Flood Of Fossils

Thursday, December 31, 2015
How does the Bible explain dinosaurs and all the other prehistoric fossils we have?  Isn't evolution the only answer?

 

Sincerely,
Stymied-o-saurus

Dear Stymied-o-saurus,

The Bible says that every creature that lives on this planet was created on day five (Gen 1:20-23) or day six (Gen 1:24-25).  This would include the dinosaurs.  Dinosaurs would have existed in the Garden of Eden, just like all other animals did.  Dinosaurs would have also been brought on Noah’s Ark, just like all other animals (Gen 6:19).  In fact, Job chapters 40 and 41 describe in detail two animals that sound exactly like dinosaurs.  That is the biblical explanation for when and where dinosaurs lived.

As for fossils, fossils are created when something is killed and buried very, very quickly.  Fossils are the product of cataclysmic destruction.  The most likely explanation for the vast amount of fossils found today is the Great Flood of Noah’s day.  The entire world was quickly covered by water (Gen 7:19-20).  The pressure, removal of oxygen, and speed of destruction caused by the Great Flood would be a perfect situation to create fossils.  There is nothing contradictory about the fossil record.  The Bible functions in perfect harmony with science.

For questions like this, we often refer people to AnswersInGenesis.org, a site that is dedicated to the research of creation scientists.  They have many articles that address these types of question in more detail.
