I’m back from vacation now, refreshed, renewed, and ready to proclaim the Good News!
It’s amazing to me what a blessing fellowship with other believers can be. To speak to someone else about Christ who loves Him as genuinely as you do is edifying to the soul. The world is a dark place, however, there are lamps lit in the heart of true believers, what an encouragement that is!
I want to speak briefly today about uniformitarianism, the idea that things go on as they always have. It’s surprizing how much the Bible actually has to say about this subject. The strongest scripture I have read in regards to it is 2 Peter 3:3-7.
This scripture is talking about the last days, scoffers come saying that things have always gone on the same way. They deny God’s creation week and Noah’s flood willingly ignoring the evidence for it.
James Hutton famously said ‘The present is the key to the past.’ This, of course, is utter nonsense. However, it is held by most secular scientists that things remain the same, with slow, gradual, change that can hardly be noticed for its slow movement. What have we actually seen in recent years? Mount St. Helens eruption eviscerated the idea that layers of the rock are laid down over millions of years, and that terrain is carved by deep time.
This was not new, volcanoes had erupted time and time again. Earthquakes, and other natural disasters shaped and reshaped the world around them. Uniformitarianism is not a logical, well thought out, scientific conclusion to come to. It is, rather, willfully remaining ignorant of facts to uphold a world view.
Seeing they do not perceive, hearing they do not understand. As in the days of Noah, they will be taken completely off guard by the judgment to come. Not because they were unearned because they scoffed at the warnings.
Do not let that stop you from proclaiming the Good News, rejoice when you are hated among men for they first hated our Master. Be good Bereans beloved, study to show yourselves approved!
