What questions do you have about the Bible?
April 9, 2007 8:33pm CST
Many people doubt the Truth in the Bible simply because they have many questions about what's written in it. Some of the questions that used to run around my head is whether the world was really created in only seven days. Was Adam really formed only from the dust of the earth? Did the flood really happen? What about the dinosaurs? Why aren't dinosaurs mentioned in the Bible? How about you? Care to share your questions?

To God 1 day is equivalent to 1000 years. Sea shells were found by scientist at the top of a mountain (forgot what mountain) above sea level. Do you know what this signifies? It signifies that the mountain was under water for it to have sea shells on top of it. As for the dinosaurs, I see no relevance if its not mention in the Bible. Is it that important for the dinosaurs to be mention on the Bible? As for man coming from dust part, from dust we came and from dust we shall return. I do believe in this. I do have my own question in the Bible. But my questions are more inquisitive than doubt. 1) End times. When will this happen? Will it be within my lifetime? 2) Prophecy. In the book of Daniel, 10 nation mentioned in its prophecy. Is that the EU?

People are going to have questions about anything that they are presented with. I take a slightly different approach. I question what's NOT there. I was raised as a christian, and I still am. Did God create the world? If he didn't, who did? The only explanation I've heard so far that sounds anywhere close to rational, is scientific ... that the world came from a cell that split. Okay, that's cool ... so where did that cell come from? Scientists will counteract "So where did God come from?" Well the bible tells us that God always has been, is, and always will be. It's easier for me to believe that a deity always has been, is, and always will be - than to believe in a cell that just "materialized and split" and BANG! Here's the world. Does that mean I don't believe in evolution? Of course not. I'm not stupid. Evolution exists and is real ... but someone had to create the species so they could evolve! The difference between science and religion ... is faith. You're able to believe in something - or you're not. Me? I'd rather believe in something intangible, than have tangible proof in front of me that just doesn't add up.

In the 6 days of creation, the earth was not created but God let it appear by the assembly of waters into one place called sea so that the dry appears which is called earth. But everything was created. And those created during those six days were specified. The earth was created, but the Holy Bible did not state specifically when. Adam was molded from the soil and God breathe His spirit into his face and he became alive known to be Adam. The flood happened and it is described in the Book of Genesis. Dinosaurs might just be a creation of the mind of authors. There is an animal in the Holy Bible similar to the dinosaurs and it's called the leviathan. Perhaps, the authors get some of their description of the dinosaur from the leviathan. I am a Christian. I believe in God and the Holy Bible as the Word of God. I believe that the Holy Bible is true and complete and there are no contradictions in it if we understand the whole counsel of God.
