‘There’s your problem’
They believe for some reason that Jesus had God-like powers, though I’m not sure where the get that from?
If you agree to be in a play, you take on that character. Let’s say your character is a mute person. If you start speaking in the middle of the play, you ruin it. But even if you fully take on the character perfectly, you are still you.
Jesus agreed to our human rules when he became a human. Just like us, He had animal tendencies, that could be overcome through God with the original blessing man was given. He was 100% human in every way. He was tempted, He got tired, He probably banged His thumb a few times with a hammer when learning carpentry, He read and learned from the scriptures, He prayed, and the Holy Spirit gave Him strength to not sin, and to perform other miracles.
Though Jesus had no Godly powers, He was still Him (100% God) He created the wind and the seas, so He still had authority over them. He had authority over sin and forgave some people. But He didn’t have knowledge of everything. He didn’t know astrophysics, or how a computer works nor how old the earth was, like any human of that time, because He was a restricted fully human, lacking the powers of God.
Sure, God, could have revealed to Jesus the actual age of the earth, just like He could tell us that. Though I see no reason to need to know this, so my guess is Jesus wasn’t revealed this. Knowing the age of the earth is such small fries in comparison with loving God and others. We can’t be trusted with heavenly things because we get so bent out of shape with earth insignificant things.
It is mind boggling how this guy can think Jesus thought the age of the earth is of any importance. That is like saying the story about the boy that cried wolf is crucial to say wolf because using bear or lion would ruin the message. Sure, Jesus mentions Genesis, like one might say mention wolf when telling that story. But the wolf isn’t the point of the story! The point is, not lying to get attention/help because when you need it, no one will believe you. God is glorified in our loving others, not having knowledge of such insignificant things!
I think all these arguments are terrible full of false dichotomies. “Jesus was YEC, and said YEC is important, so if YEC is wrong, we can’t trust Jesus”???
God created them male and female before creation or at the beginning of creation. All that means, is He had a plan in mind to create us as we now are, we are an endstate. Before or at the Big Bang, that happened for us, we were known. The earth came from the Big Bang, all the universal constants required for life were known at or before the Big Bang.
If something is created, it is for a reason, with purpose. We were created, male and female at the beginning of creation.
There is nothing Jesus says that rules out evolution.
