You alone are the LORD; You have made heaven, the heaven of heavens, with all their host, the earth and everything on it . . . The host of heaven worships You. (NEHEMIAH 9:6)
The supposed big bang is one of the popular atheistic models about the origin of the universe. It basically teaches that the universe created itself. There was nothing, then something popped into existence from nothing, rapidly “exploded,” and is still expanding today. Actually, biblical creationists expect the heavens to be stretching out as well, but by the power of God, not by a big bang. There are big problems with the big-bang model. First, it conflicts with God’s Word. The big-bang model has stars coming into existence before the earth, but God says the earth came before the stars. Also, according to the Bible, the age of the universe is about 6,000 years. This clearly disagrees with the billions of years required for the big bang.
The big bang has several scientific problems, too. Some well-meaning Christians have suggested that maybe God used the big bang, but if that were the case, then God really didn’t do anything—and it contradicts His Word. The God of the Bible was intimately involved in creation from the very first verse of the Bible. The issue is whether we will trust a perfect God’s Word when He speaks or imperfect human opinions about the past.
