The Bible tells us that there will be people that scoff at the Bible in the last days:
“Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers… (2 Peter 3:3).”
On the March 6, 2012 episode of The O’Reilly Factor, Bill O’Reilly openly scoffs at the Bible. The focus of his attack was the Book of Genesis, which is the foundational book for the entire Bible. The guest on his program was Dr. Robert Jeffress, the pastor of First Baptist Dallas.
Bill O’Reilly begins by showing his belief in evolution and openly mocks the biblical account of Adam and Eve in the Book of Genesis:
“If you believe in Adam and Eve, there are a number of other things that you have to believe. Incest is one of them because the race had to procreate off the children that Adam and Eve had. Then you have to reject the science of evolution and carbon dating and all of those things. It’s kind of incompatible with science.”
O’Reilly asked, “Do you believe that the universe started 13.7 billion years ago?”
Jeffress answered, “I think it very well could have been. One of the things that fundamentalist Christians mess up on is: they try to say the earth is 6,000 years old. The Bible never makes that claim anywhere.”
Dr. Robert Jeffress, unfortunately, did not do a good job of upholding the authority of God’s Word. Instead of upholding the authority of the Word of God, he attacks those that take God’s Word as truth.
Unfortunately, like Dr. Jeffress, many Christians are accepting man’s ideas as truth and try to fit them into the Bible. One of man’s most popular ideas is the belief in millions of years. Most Christians have not come to realize this yet, but, the belief in millions of years is part of the pagan religion of our day.
Bill O’Reilly does not believe that God’s Word is truth. Instead, he believes man’s word is truth. He is a believer in this pagan religion of our day, which again is a belief in millions of years and evolution.
A belief in millions of years is the foundational problem that takes people away from the Bible. If you take away the millions of years, the only alternative is to believe the Bible.
A plain reading and interpretation of the Bible says that about 6,000 years ago God created everything, 4,400 years ago there was a worldwide flood, and 2,000 years ago was the life of Christ on earth.
It is time that Christians start taking God’s Word as truth and start upholding the authority of the Word of God. We need to provide answers for the world.

And despite what O’Reilly believes: Evolution is a Religion – Not Science.
