Old Earth vs. Young Earth

Tim Challies is blogging from Ligonier Ministries Annual Conference. It sounds like they are addressing numerous thorny issues in the Church. One of these most thorny and contentious issues in the Church recently has been the age of the earth. Al Mohler gave a lecture on "Why Does the Universe Look So Old?" Challies gave a summary of the lecture on his blog. You can find it here. The article summarizes some of the main problems with the old earth theory from a theological standpoint. Mohler's point is that Christians give up way too much when we say the earth is millions or billions of years old.

Let the saints be joyful in glory, let them sing aloud on their beds, let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a two edged sword in their hand, to execute vengeance on the nations, and punishments on the peoples; to bind the kings with chains and their nobles with fetters of iron. Psalm 149:5-8
