CLEVELAND, Ga., (TMNews) – Dr. Kurt Wise, professor of biology and director of The Brady Center for Creation Research at Truett-McConnell College, combined his research of earthquakes and his faith in the Bible to demonstrate the magnitude of God’s wrath over sin in the March 26th weekly chapel service.

In his study of paleo quakes, past earthquakes, Wise made significant discoveries which match up with the biblical account of the flood and several other earthquakes recorded in the Bible.

“What we see today when we see the incredible destruction of an earthquake,” Wise said, “[is] a tiny, tiny picture of the fury of God’s wrath against human sin. We’re still feeling the effects of this.”

By analyzing layers of sediments from the Dead Sea, Wise and fellow scientist and geologist, Dr. Steven Austin, located deformations that indicate when past earthquakes have occurred and how large they were.

The data that their research yielded corresponds with earthquakes that were recorded in various scripture passages, and Wise’s own discoveries have surfaced evidence to support the biblical account of a worldwide flood.

Wise also presented data that shows the gradual weakening of earthquakes since the flood and asserted that the earthquakes after the flood have been direct results of the original earthquake.

Concluding with a presentation of the gospel, Wise said, “God promised that He would never destroy the earth with a flood again, but He did promise He’s coming back, and He’s coming back in judgment.”

“Are you ready for that judgment?” Wise asked. “God has made a way for you to avoid that…Today, God offers Jesus Christ as the ark of salvation through the judgment that is to come. With His forgiveness, you will not feel the wrath of God which is coming, guaranteed.”
