The Blasphemy of Old-Age, Death-Before-The-Fall Doctrine

So why are so many "educated" and "sola Scriptura" "Christians NOT passionate about the character and unique authority as Creator? Indeed, to deny the Genesis account of Creation in any way, no matter how "small" it seems, is to blaspheme God. As Henry Morris III says:

“And to love him with all the heart, and with all the understanding, and with all the soul, and with all the strength, and to love his neighbour as himself, is more than all whole burnt offerings and sacrifices.” (Mark 12:33)

"God has a rather “passionate” view about His character and His unique authority in the universe: “I am the LORD, and there is none else, there is no God beside me: I girded thee, though thou hast not known me: That they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none beside me. I am the LORD, and there is none else. . . . For thus saith the LORD that created the heavens; God himself that formed the earth and made it; he hath established it, he created it not in vain, he formed it to be inhabited: I am the LORD; and there is none else” (Isaiah 45:5-6, 18).

It is nothing short of blasphemy to profess that the omniscient and omnipotent God of love and grace would have effected His creation through the horrific, purposeless, waste-filled, and age-long death of billions of living things prior to the rebellion of Adam (Romans 5:12). The naturalistic and evolutionary scheme of atheistic man is contradictory to God’s Word and His revealed character. We are to be committed to what God has said—whether the majority is passionately against it or not. "
