Note: This timeline was printed in Creation magazine to faithfully represent the details provided by the late Archbishop James Ussher in The Annals of the World, as translated by Larry Pierce and extracted by Paul Hansen. Thus, we felt compelled to retain some items which we knew would be the subject of controversy and which did not necessarily reflect a specific stance by AiG. One such example is the way the chart refers to and positions Daniel’s “seventy sevens” (Daniel 9:24), which seems to endorse a particular eschatological view (cf. Daniel 9:25). AiG staff/supporters represent a wide range of eschatological frameworks, and we want to make it clear that AiG does not wish to be seen to be endorsing any particular eschatological view outside of our statement of faith:
Section 3, Item 9: Jesus Christ rose bodily from the dead, ascended to heaven, and is currently seated at the right hand of God the Father, and shall return in person to this earth as Judge of the living and the dead.
Help keep these daily articles coming. Support AiG.
“Now that I have updated, revised, and expanded The Lie, I believe it’s an even more powerful, eyeopening book for the church—an essential resource to help all of us to understand the great delusion that permeates our world! The message of The Lie IS the message of AiG and why we even exist! It IS the message God has laid on our hearts to bring before the church! It IS a vital message for our time.”
– Ken Ham, president and founder of AiG–U.S.
