Bible is inerrant word of God

To the editor:

On May 18, 1980, Mount St. Helen’s eruption was the most destructive in U.S. history, yet it measured only 5.1 on the Richter scale. Fifty-seven people died and thousands of animals were killed, according to the United States Geological Survey.

This earthquake lasted a mere nine hours, yet it created a “mini Grand Canyon.” Had the earthquake measured one or two points higher on the Richter scale, the “mini Grand Canyon” would have been substantially larger. If the Colorado River was flowing through this region, instead of two minor streams, the result would have been drastically different.

Most scientists estimate that it took one to two million years (quite a spread) for the Grand Canyon to be formed. My faith in God does not allow me to believe this hoax which is being perpetrated around the world.

A vast number of the world’s population are willfully ignorant. Even the heavens proclaim God’s glory, and yet most people are in denial of a creator God. How sad!

Remember, a “mini Grand Canyon” was formed in nine hours. It is reasonable to believe that the Grand Canyon was created by God with his spoken Word approximately 6,000 years ago according to Genesis, the first book in the Bible. The Bible is the inspired, infallible, inerrant word of God.

In chapters 7 and 8 of Genesis the global flood is recorded. The global flood was witnessed by eight individuals — Noah’s family — and lasted 371 days. To vacate the flood waters, the crust of the earth was opened. As proof of the flood, fossils of marine and plant animals are found together, which is very unusual. This could only happen with a flood of epic proportions.

Evolutionists have no way of proving their ideas such as the Big Bang, even though they have been searching for hundreds of years. The odds against the Big Bang ever happening are astronomical. It simply did not happen.

In my opinion, evolutionists will try to manufacture some element of proof according to their own theories and prefer to willfully ignore the truth. Humans did not evolve!

I serve a god who is omnipotent, omniscient and omnipresent!
