How Old Is Christianity?
“In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.”
“And God called the light day, and the darkness he called night.
And the evening and the morning were the first day.”
“Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them.
And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made;”
“Of old hast thou laid the foundation of the earth: and the heavens are the work of thy hands.”
“The Lord possessed me in the beginning of his way, before his works of old.
I was set up from everlasting, from the beginning, or ever the earth was.
When there were no depths, I was brought forth; when there were no fountains
abounding with water. Before the mountains were settled, before the hills
was I brought forth: While as yet he had not made the earth, nor the fields,
nor the highest part of the dust of the world. When he prepared the heavens,
I was there: when he set a compass upon the face of the depth: when he established
the clouds above: when he strengthened the fountains of the deep: when he gave to
the sea his decree, that the waters should not pass his commandment: when he appointed
the foundations of the earth: then I was by him, as one brought up with him: and I was
daily his delight, rejoicing always before him; rejoicing in the habitable part of his earth;
and my delights were with the sons of men.”
“Who hath wrought and done it, calling the generations from the beginning? I the Lord,
the first, and with the last; I am he.”
“…saith the Lord, which stretcheth forth the heavens, and layeth the foundation of the earth,
and formeth the spirit of man within him.”
“I will open my mouth in parables; I will utter things which have been kept secret
from the foundation of the world.”
“But from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female.”
“…that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me
before the foundation of the world.”
“According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world,
that we should be holy and without blame before him in love.”
“And, Thou, Lord, in the beginning hast laid the foundation of the earth;
and the heavens are the works of thine hands:”
(1 Peter 1:19-20)
“But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot:
Who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest
in these last times for you,”
(1 John 2:13)
“I write unto you, fathers, because ye have known him that is from the beginning.”
“And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written
in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.”
“Thy word is true from the beginning: and every one of they righteous judgments endureth for ever.”
(2 Thes 2:13)
“…because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit
and belief of the truth:”
“And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world
hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ: to the intent that now unto the
principalities and powers in heavenly places might be known by the church the manifold wisdom of God,
according to the eternal purpose which he purposed in Christ Jesus our Lord:”
(1 John 3:8)
“He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning.
For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.”
“Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father,
inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:”
(1 Corinthians 3:11)
“For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.”
SO, HOW OLD IS CHRISTIANITY?
The Simple Truth?
NOTHING NOW IS,
NOTHING EVER HAS BEEN,
AND NOTHING EVER WILL BE
OLDER THAN CHRISTIANITY!
