How is confirming God's word distracting from God's Plan of Salvation? Jesus referred to Genesis several times as literally true. In today's day and age, those that reject the timeline of Genesis, as we saw a couple of posts above, is one of the greatest tools of the Devil to keep people from believing in His word. We are told to "occupy till I come" and in my avocation, exploring these issues is not at all a distraction to me. It is using my avocation to increase other's faith in the truth of God's word and my faith as well.The only reason I posted that video was because of all the cave drawings, temple carvings and the bringing to light of the description and mention of dragons in Scripture. It's like a missing piece of the puzzle that was found and added to what we are learning. Does that knowledge help me any in my walk? Probably not thought I'm glad you brought it up with the flood thread and added to what we all might know. It is reassuring to know that those nasty critters were still around but fading fast. It still leaves huge questions and gaps in knowledge but you could waste a lifetime chasing them if they distract you away from God's Plan for Man's Salvation.
