But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.

Originally posted by Proper KnobEr....um....the Bible says that the earth and the universe will pass away, so you might say it agrees with science.
In a few billion years our sun will start to expand as it begins to run out of energy, the Earth will be cooked if not enveloped by the sun.
I'd like to see God stop that one.
Originally posted by whodeyThe jury is still out on that one. Science can change, Is the universe expanding until an eventual (lack-of) heat death or will it at some point contract for an (excessive) heat death or will it reach a steady-state. Many ideas - no generally accepted answer. People will keep trying to figure it out.
Actually I thought that the entire universe would vanish at some point according to science.

So some scriptures have been quoted that says the "earth and heavens" will pass away. Some say the will be burned. One says he is creating a new heavens and new earth.
But what about the scriptures that say things such as Ecl 1:4, Ps 78:69, 104:5, 119:90?
Originally posted by josephwBut then one could ask..Why does the earth need to be destroyed or even burned if the problem with the way things are with wickedness and such, is not the fault of the planet earth? It is man that's causing the problems as well as the demonic influance of Satan of course...
Yes. There are times when one wonders why the Bible says things that makes one think, 'what does this mean'?
Actually, it's not that hard to understand. You have to consider the context first. A point is being made by the way a thing is worded to illustrate something else.

Besides, the earth won't cease to exist, it will simply be burned up and made new.
