Ramblings is a collection of writings that tend to ramble on different topics to spark interest, challenge, and encourage others to research and think deeper on the issues of life. It is not meant to cause dissension, arguments, or debates in any way. They are merely points and thoughts to ponder. The "other side of the coin" so to speak. A Rambling is not meant to necessarily draw to a conclusion. It's up to you, the reader to do that.

Star Light
What Does It Really Tell Us?

As from a previous Rambling on Theistic Evolution this is another one of the biggest vehicles that causes doubt and unbelief.

In Astronomy scientists have searched the heavens for hundreds of years trying to find and understand the beginning of time and the universe and how it was created. They have discovered many wonderful and beautiful things. They have drawn many great conclusions, some good but unfortunately many may be in error.

Through their research they have found that light travels 186,000 miles/second and in one year it travels about 6.6 trillion miles. Thay have called this unit a light year or the amount of miles light travels in one year. They have found ways to measure the distance of stars from the earth based on the color shift of light and determined that many are millions and billions of light years away. Therefore, they have concluded that it must have taken the light from those particular stars millions and billions of years to reach us and therefore the universe is millions or billions of years old.

However, this does not line up with what the Bible says and when we as Christians whose guide is the Bible see conclusions that contradict the Scriptures we should question the validity of the conclusion.

  1. Genesis 1:1-3 "In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. And the earth was formless and void, and darkness was over the surface of the deep; and the Spirit of God was moving over the surface of the waters. Then God said, "Let there be light"; and there was light."

  2. Genesis 1:14-19 "Then God said, "Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night, and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days and years; and let them be for lights in the expanse of the heavens to give light on the earth"; and it was so. And God made the two great lights, the greater light to govern the day, and the lesser light to govern the night; He made the stars also. And God placed them in the expanse of the heavens to give light on the earth , and to govern the day and the night, and to separate the light from the darkness; and God saw that it was good. And there was evening and there was morning, a fourth day."

  3. God created light. He didn't grow it. It was all over instantly. It did not have to travel.

  4. Adam and Eve were created fully grown and mature. They did not have to grow up or mature. All the rest of the animals and trees and His creation was created fully formed and mature.

  5. So why couldn't the universe and all the stars be created fully mature and the light from the stars already be seen on the earth and not have traveled to get here.

Consider this: All of the universe was created fully mature with the stars being seen as they are now. The science and math is correct in discovering the distance of the stars. But the conclusion that it took billions of years for light to travel to get here is false. In creation it was already here. It just continues to come.

God has created the beauty of the stars for our enjoyment and pleasure. He has allowed us to understand and see the distances and expanse and majesty of the universe. Why? To Glorify Him, To Love Him, And Adore Him, Not His Creation, But Him.

Do You Love Him For All He Has Done?
