It Is Impossible To Fold Rock
Bent, curved, folded rock layers are a common sight around the world. But, how did they get folded. If you try to bend rock... it doesn't bend, it fractures and breaks. And not only do we see folded layers, we see many layers all folded together. If it takes millions of years to lay down a layer of sediment, how can so many layers of rock (respresenting millions of years of deposits) all be folded together?
This Is A Difficult Question... Except...
Based on long ages, the folded rocks we observe have no reasonable explanation. They could not have happened.
Based on the reality of Noah's Flood, folded rock layers are very reasonable. The sediment layers are the result of a year-long global flood. When the fountains of the deep opened up (Genesis 7:11), that was the start of the continents moving apart accompanied by tremendous earthquakes and volcanoes. These would have continued after the flood, and we are still seeing the remnant of the continents splitting apart in continental drift today. The large movements of the earth during and shortly after the flood would have resulted in the rock folds we see today. At that time the sediment was still wet and soft, so it could bend without fracturing.
That we observe geologic folds today is further evidence that a recent (4,500 years ago) global flood did happen.

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.
