Age of the Earth and Salvation

Here we go again. The strange auto-censors at Facebook claimed that an intended post violates their so-called community standards, and they blocked it from the URL. We post on The Question Evolution Project links to Answers in Genesis many times, but occasionally a link is instantly blocked whether from them or someone else.

Another post instantly blocked by Facebook. Follow the link and see if you can find a problem in the linked article on salvation and the age of Earth.

In fact, I will also include the introductory paragraphs, but merged with the usual link format.

Opponents of biblical creation are known to spread the lie that we claim that one must believe in the young earth teachings to be saved. Obviously not, but the issue is important, including a proper understanding of Scripture and of hermeneutics.
Scripture plainly teaches that salvation is conditioned upon faith in Christ, with no requirement for what one believes about the age of the earth or universe.

Now when I say this, people sometimes assume then that it does not matter what a Christian believes concerning the supposed millions of years age for the earth and universe.

Even though it is not a salvation issue, the belief that earth history spans millions of years has very severe consequences. Let me summarize some of these.
