It is unfortunate that in this day every person's witness must be thoroughly examined but it is necessary. Many people give glory to God, but which god and which jesus are they giving glory to? Is it to the point where one must stand and say "I give glory to the God who, through Jesus Christ alone, created the world in 6 days and redeemed sinners by his death & his blood and calls us to be justified in him and through no other means, forsaking all others but Christ alone"? I'm afraid it probably is. Even in the comments here we show our misconceptions because many people may call themselves Christians but they are unaware that the only Christian it is possible to be is a born-again-Christian. There is no other kind!
I think Ken Ham has a right to speak on these things on his blog, doesn't he!? It's the media that spreads everything around. He's probably quite correct actually, and telling the truth isn't exactly a bad thing after all.
Yeah, why not let our kids suffer with whatever our bad choices bring them. Feed them cheap rubbish every meal and just let GOD look after them, eh!?
To the contrary, we are given children with a responsibility to raise them wisely - with their spiritual AND physical health in mind. I wouldn't feed my child poison and just expect GOD to keep them safe regardless!
The article doesn't seem to provide any actual beliefs of these guys. But ... of course GOD will remain faithful to His promises concerning Israel! The OT is full of His promises, and if He gives up on those where will He end??
James Thomas: It's my opinion (not mine only) that the Torah/law was known by the patriarchs. Consider Abraham in Gen 26:5 "Abraham obeyed my voice and kept my charge, my commandments, my statutes and my laws" and compare this to 1 Kings 2:3.
Noah seemed to know the difference between clean/unclean beasts. Abraham may have even met the 3 strangers during the Feast of Unleavened Bread!? It was an "appointed time" (Gen 18:14), what the LORD's feasts are called later, and probably alluded to in creation ("seasons" in Gen 1:14).
James Thomas wrote: Next question is...why are the children of Adam and Eve performing sacrifices to God in Genesis 4?
Here's a controversial answer: GOD's Torah (instructions) were known way back then. Consider also Judah's sons who married Tamar. The second son, Onan, married to raise seed for his brother (Gen 38:8). This is all explained later to Moses, but Judah obviously observed this much earlier!
