Cosmological Arguments and the Expansion of the Universe

QUESTION: Cosmological Arguments and the Expansion of the Universe

ANSWER:

Another indication that the universe had a beginning is that it is expanding. If you “run the film in reverse” going backwards in time, it all condenses down to the ultra-dense “singularity” from which the Big Bang arose, and prior to that, the only possibility is a transcendent agent which could have caused matter, energy, time and space to come into existence. Who could this entity be?

Cosmological Arguments and the Bible
There are many references to creation in the Bible, and what modern science has discovered matches them all perfectly. For example, take a look at these verses:
    Genesis 1, Genesis 2, Psalm 19:1-2, Psalm 104, Psalm 148:1-6, Isaiah 40:21-22, Isaiah 42:5, Isaiah 45:12, Isaiah 51:13, Jeremiah 10:12, Jeremiah 51:15, Hebrews 1:10-12, and Hebrews 11:3.
These references to a beginning of the universe (that is, of time, space, matter and energy), and to its continual “spreading out” or expansion (it is still expanding today) were not empirically discernable to these authors. They must have had “inside information” to get this right.

WHAT DO YOU THINK? - We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
