How does the biblical, young universe explain distant starlight?
This has been an argument that has been thrown at Creationists for a very long time. Evolutionists and skeptics believe we are at a stand still at this question; are we? Absolutely not!
First of all, what does the distant starlight mean and how is it a problem for those who believe in a God-made world?
The distant starlight problem for Creationists goes like this: there are stars and galaxies billions of lightyears away and since we see their light the universe must be billion of years old for the light to have reached us.
This question definitely stumps some Bible-believing Christians and sometimes they crumble under the argument, giving a foothold for Satan to degrade Christianity! We need to know the answer for this statement!
Find the answer:
If my attitude be one of fear, not faith, about one who has disappointed me; if I say, “Just what I expected,” if a fall occurs, then I know nothing of Calvary love.
If I take offence easily; if I am content to continue in cold unfriendliness, though friendship be possible, then I know nothing of Calvary love.
If I do not give a friend “The benefit of the doubt,” but put the worst construction instead of the best on what is said or done, then I know nothing of Calvary love.
If I cast up a confessed, repented, and forsaken sin against another, and allow my remembrance of that sin to colour my thinking and feed my suspicions, then I know nothing of Calvary love.
