It is not commonly known that many of the Bible’s statements about astronomy went against the generally accepted teachings of the time. Modern science, however, has confirmed what the Bible has taught. As in all things, the Bible is absolutely correct when it teaches about the universe.
Some professing Christians accept the claim that God used naturalistic processes, including the big bang, to create the universe. Unfortunately, such views deny what the Creator Himself has said about the creation of the universe.
There are many problems with the naturalistic explanations of the formation of our solar system. Because the naturalistic ideas are not based on the foundation of God’s perfect Word, they fall short. Will you trust God’s Word or man’s reasoning when it comes to the formation of the solar system?
Creationists have good models accounting for why we see distant starlight so “soon” after creation—models that avoid problematic atheistic assumptions (e.g., the Copernican principle) and explain the divine origin of the cosmos.
Christians should uphold the highest standards of excellence in their science, questioning all quirky claims and avoiding hasty conclusions, such as the examples described in this article.
Scientists often proclaim that they have “proved” that the universe is billions of years old, but does the observational science support this assertion?
Science fiction has popularized the idea that—somewhere in space—ETs, aliens, and UFOs thrive. Do the Bible and the evidence support this notion?
Does observational science support the big bang, the idea that 13 billion years ago all matter came from nothing and eventually formed everything we see today?
What are black holes, and are they real? How can we observe them if their gravity is so strong that not even light can escape?
Comets can’t last even hundreds of thousands of years. The bright tail of the comet reminds us that the universe is young—just as the Bible says!
How should Christians approach cosmology? Is it a field hopelessly ruled by the secular worldview, or does it proclaim the glory of God and the truth of his Word?
Is the earth unique and special, or is it just one of many similar habitable planets scattered across the universe?
Astronomers are constantly discovering extrasolar planets orbiting distant stars. Are these mysterious bodies other earths with the potential to contain life?
Will life be found inhabiting the rocky, desert-like surface of the Red Planet, our nearest celestial neighbor, Mars?
As rovers and probes are sent to explore the unchartered surface of Mars, the discoveries are exciting. How should Bible-believing Christians view these finds?
The moon, a bright, familiar sight in the night sky, shows evidence of having been carefully fashioned in the recent past.
What does our solar system, with its planets, moons, and asteroids, reveal about the origin, age, and incredible diversity of the universe?
How could distant starlight from millions of light years away reach earth if the universe is only around 6,000 years old, as the Bible reveals?
The heavens declare the glory of God, and the brilliant beauty of countless stars certainly declares the handiwork of the Creator God.
The sun, a star situated the perfect distance from earth to supply needed heat and light, shows evidence of special design by a loving Creator.
The Gospel of Matthew records a star appearing at the birth of the Lord Jesus. What was this star? And how did it lead the magi to the Lord?
