For nearly 18 centuries since the founding of the New Testament church, the Orthodox Jews, the early church Fathers, the Catholics and Protestants believed in a 6 literal day creation just several thousand years ago and that the flood of Noah was a global flood. What changed about 200 years ago? Not God’s Word! Rather, the lie that God’s word is outdated on matters of history and science and therefore we don’t have to believe anything it says anymore. After all, a God who can’t get the plain, mundane facts of history and science correct cannot be authoritative or trustworthy.
Not just Genesis and Exodus but also the words of Christ and the Apostle Paul teach a recent creation and thus a young earth. Only science “falsely so called” disagrees.
