Division of the Language (Page 166)
There is nothing of significance from a creation science perspective. The author talks about Babel and the division of the languages. Conservative old earth believers will have no problems with this passage of Scripture.
Abram's Genealogy (Page 173)
Sheffield mentions the declining life spans of the people after the flood, attributing this to the absence of the pre-flood "canopy." Since the ill-fated canopy theory has been shown to be false in previous chapters, we will not address it here. There are other theories for how man's lifespan decreased. All are mere speculation, so I leave it to the reader to investigate this on their own.
A Man Called From the Multitude (Page 176)
Nothing related to the age of the earth is presented in this section.
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.
