Comets Don't Last Very Long

How old is the earth? Billions of years or just thousands of years?

A comet is a small, icy snowball in the sky that often has a tail. But comets don't last very long. Each time they swing around the sun they become smaller. The sun evaporates the comet's ice and dust particles then break free. That's what forms the comet's tail. At best comets can only last a few million years. That we still see comets today is more evidence the earth is young.

It is claimed the new comets come from the Kuiper Belt. But the objects in the Kuiper Belt are very different from comets. So that doesn't work. Well, that means htat new comets come from the Oort Cloud. But the Oort Cloud is just a theroy. It has never been observed. There is no evidence that it exists. It is simply circular reasoning. We know that comets still exist because they come from the Oort Cloud. We know there is an Oort Cloud because we still have comets. That's not science!

THE GOOD NEWS

The Good News


What makes this good news is the bad news about you:

For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. - Romans 3:23

Sin means breaking the law. In this case God's law. This is bad news because perfection is required by God. Lawbreakers must pay the just penalty for breaking the law. That penalty is the lake of fire (the second death).

All liars, their part will be in the lake that burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death. - Revelation 21:8

Have you ever told a lie? Have you ever taken something that does not belong to you, no matter how small? Have you ever looked at another person with lust? In Matthew 5 Jesus said:

You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall not commit adultery’; but I say to you that everyone who looks at a woman with lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart.'

You have broken God's laws. You have sinned. There must be justice, and that means eternity in hell, the lake of fire, the second death. Unless...

Unless there was someone willing to pay that penalty on your behalf. Someone who will take on themselves the consequences you deserve. And there is. There is one person who can and will do that. That person is Jesus Christ. If you trust this is true, and repent (turn away from disobeying God), Jesus' death is applied to your account and you are freed from the penalty of sin to be with God forever.
