Media @ New Hope CalgaryIn this message we dig into God’s timeless, unchanging goodness in geology (in light of this week's events, we'll also ask why an unchanging and good God allows floods)

“In the beginning you laid the foundations of the earth 
and the heavens are the work of your hands. They will perish, but you remain; they will all wear out like a garment.
Like clothing you will change them
and they will be discarded. But you remain the same,
and your years will never end.”
Psalm 102:25-27, NIV

“Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.”
Hebrews 13:8, NIV

’God is a spirit, whose being, wisdom power, holiness, justice, goodness, and truth are infinite, eternal, and unchangeable.”
Westminster Shorter Catechism, Q4, 1674

“Being able to walk anywhere on the earth and pick up a rock, and feel at home…”
Michael Wamsteeker on what’s ‘just right’ about being a geologist

“The immensity of the moment is crushing!”
Michael Wamsteeker, on holding a 1.5 billion year old rock in his hand

“The 1st Geological Principal: Uniformitarianism - This principal can be summed up very simply as "the present is the key to the past". At the heart of this idea is the assumption that laws of nature have acted in the same manner over time, and especially over the history of the earth.”
Geologist Michael Wamsteeker on Geology 101

“[Discoving] the most beautiful blue crystal that you just pulled out of nowhere… in a sea of grey rock…”
Geologist Alex Kaul, re: what feels just right about geology for him

"I am the Alpha and the Omega," says the Lord God, "who is, and who was, and who is to come, the Almighty."
Jesus in Revelation 1:8, NIV

"If they (the people cheering for Jesus) keep quiet, the stones will cry out." Jesus in Luke 19:40

Google: Antarctica 2004 ice core research project . Biblical error of 10,000 year old Earth or less is demonstrably wrong by 100's of thousand's year's mistake by bible writers
