For many years, some scientists have been concerned that a giant asteroid could hit the world and essentially obliterate life as we know it. Many think this asteroid may not be for hundreds of years in the future, but that is a definite concern for the earth’s future as well as its inhabitants.
However, Creationist Ken Ham has spoken out against a documentary produced by the Discovery Channel that hypothesizes about how the Earth could be destroyed if it’s one day hit by the giant asteroid, and he suggests that non-believers should be afraid of Jesus Christ’s judgment instead. Creationists are people who believe the Earth was created by God, and not by any theory, such as the Big Bang Theory or evolutionary processes.
Ham, who is the CEO and president of the Creation Museum in Kentucky, argued that such views are perpetuated by theories like evolution rather than trusting in the Bible. Ham’s comments were in response to the video that demonstrated what would happen if a 310-mile asteroid hit the Pacific Ocean. He expressed his view that those who believed in Jesus need not fear an asteroid.
“Those of us who have trusted in Christ as Savior have no fear of this coming judgment because our penalty for sin has already been paid by Jesus. But instead of fearing some hypothetical asteroid apocalypse, those who refuse to acknowledge Christ as Lord should fear this coming judgment, and it should bring them to repent and put their faith in Christ. Why is it that evolutionists are so concerned that humanity will someday be catastrophically destroyed? Well, according to man’s ideas about the past, life arose naturalistically and the universe is governed completely by the merciless laws of physics. According to their worldview, evolutionists contend there isn’t anyone upholding or sustaining the universe. We are simply at the mercy of naturalistic processes. Also, according to one evolutionary idea about the supposed dinosaur extinction event, a massive asteroid impact wiped out the dinosaurs about 65 million years ago. If such an event happened once before, what’s to stop it from happening again and wiping out the earth again?”
Ham urges that those who believe in the Bible have no need to fear asteroids or any type of apocalypse created by anything except for God, according to Christian Post. Ham has gone head to head with many popular scientists and evolutionists, including Bill Nye, who wants evolutionism and not creationism taught in schools. He says that keeping creationism out of classrooms is of utmost importance to him.
