Will There Be a Test on This?

“The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’” Matthew 25:40

There’s a lot of discussion among Christians on the age of the earth. After much thought, reading, and prayer, I’ve decided… I don’t need to know.

Well, actually, I believe that the earth is over four billion years old; but if you believe it’s six days old, that’s okay with me. I believe in evolution. If you believe in special creation, that’s okay too. I believe the Old Testament is full of wonderful parables (like the parables that Jesus told), and the earth is filled with wonders beyond our understanding (and scientists help us understand it a little more all the time).

Science explains the world around me. God’s Word tells me how to live.

I do know that the parable of The Sheep and the Goats sets a pretty definite line regarding who will inherit the Kingdom: “I was hungry, and you gave me food to eat. I was thirsty, and you gave me drink. I was a stranger, and you took me in. I was naked, and you clothed me. I was sick, and you visited me. I was in prison, and you came to me … because you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.”
