I am perfectly content to discuss the arguments while ignoring their satirical delivery!
I often find it interesting how some try to set up the Gospel and young earth creationism as mutually exclusive (or imply that YEC somehow obscures the Gospel)…This is generally false. I have been able to argue for YEC in the origins debate for years without making that the center of my faith! Jesus is the center of our faith, but that does not mean that the origins debate is a futile endeavor and we should simply ignore origins…
As far as grace always being the plan, this has more to do with God’s omniscience (which is a fascinating [albeit brain-twisting] subject). As far as God’s creation still being very good, I am not sure how they use Romans 1:20 to justify that statement (and if they do, it’s a stretch at best).
I don’t even understand what he is trying to prove with the assertions made in the first caption (and the second one quote mines Job 38 which is written in semi-poetic language and indicates that “the morning stars” are synonymous with angels.
Romans 1:20 again? They conveniently refrain from quoting the verse directly. The fallen world does not falsify Romans 1:20 in the slightest. Romans 1:20 deals more with the concept of the natural knowledge of God. As for meat in Isaiah 25:6…After the flood, God gave humans the permission to eat meat. Besides, Isaiah 25:6 doesn’t even directly mention meat (at least, the ESV [which is what I read]), and the book of Isaiah is famous for speaking of an end of predatory behavior (try Isaiah 11). As for Revelation 21, I typically shake my head and move on from arguments that start with “why did God/the Bible do/say _____ instead of _____,” but suffice it to say that the new creation (as it is described) will have differences from the original. Just actually read revelation.
Well, there are my thoughts on these interesting (albeit fraudulent) little arguments. Thanks for sharing!
(Update: It is a distinct possibility that I should have read the entire tract before refuting…I was under the impression that these were isolated cartoons that were not integrated into a sequential comic strip…Oh well.)
(P.S: I appreciate that you refrained from posting the most satirical frames ).
