Extreme Ancientness of Earth and Universe a Stumbling Block for many Christians

God is not requiring Christians to have a blind faith in an aspect of The Holy Bible, in the face of tremendous contradictory evidence. CASE IN POINT: Belief in a very young earth and universe (claims that it is only about 6,000 years in age). {VIDEO, that goes with this article.} There seems to be a hard stance denial by some young earth creationists, that during eternity past, God has done far more things with the universe and also with the earth. They feel that recognition that God began creating more than 6,000 years ago, is false and possibly even a heresy. Sometimes the “False Teacher” label toward men and women who teach that there was a pre-Adamic earth-judgment, will wield this accusation against them like a sword. However, from where does false teaching in this area actually come from?

The video teaching found at the link above, is an attempt to get the supposedly unmovable young earth creationists, to look at a few facts that make it very hard to hold to the position that God began creating only 6,000 years ago. This teaching does not propose evolutionary theories in any way but rather that “Adam’s/Mankind’s Domain” specifically, was created approximately  6,000 years ago and done by God in 6 literal 24 hour days. The question is; What happened in the earth and universe before this? In actuality we can only know in small-part what took place involving the original fall of Lucifer and one-third of the angels that followed him. Facts that are directly related to this teaching.

Jesus said fallen angels resulted in the creating of hell as a place of incarceration for them (Matthew 25:41). Pride and self exaltation was their vividly-described sin, NOT the tempting of Adam and Eve. Satan would not be roaming earth (1 Peter 5:8) and demonic spirits/devils would not be affecting mankind, worldwide, every day, if they were currently in incarceration (Ephesians Chapter 6). Their original fall and incarceration was a pre-adamic event (2 Peter 2:4), otherwise we cannot make sense of the Holy Scriptures. NOTE that there is no mention of hell being created in the Genesis narrative that describes a renewed earth, made as Adam’s domain. Angels watched the very creation of the foundations of the earth and they shouted for joy and sang praises to God as he did so: Job 38:6-7King James Version (KJV)

“Whereupon are the foundations thereof fastened? or who laid the corner stone thereof; When the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy?”
