An excellent question, whether you are young earth or old earth.
1. Stay informed. Keep current by checking out creation science websites, magazines, and books.
2. Pray for everyone involved in the age debate, young or old.
3. Post our Signs in your churches.
4. Pass out tracts.
5. Invite a Speaker. Several organizations have speakers that will talk about old earth creationism.
6. Volunteer to speak at your local church.
Please keep in mind…this is about saving souls…not converting young earth believers to old earth. Avoid debates with young-earth creation science proponents, as this is fruitless…after all, if both you and he are saved, you’re both only wasting your breath. In most cases, they are too indoctrinated to ever admit they are wrong. Since they are saved, let them be…they can serve the Lord faithfully in their own capacity.
We should, however, confront untruths whenever we encounter them. Be vocal about your beliefs. Keep in mind that when young earth doctrine is spread, it is only spreading untruths, and thus it should be confronted where it is possible to do so diplomatically.
If you are not a Christian, and you have been holding out on making a decision for Christ because the Church always preached a message that was contrary to what you saw in the scientific world, then rest assured that the Bible is the inerrant Word of God, and you can believe in Christ and receive salvation, while still believing in an old earth.
