Creation, The True Story
We seem to get stuck right in the beginning. We seem to fixate ourselves on this one word, "day". My Life Application Study Bible, NASB states Genesis purpose like this, "To record God's creation of the world and his desire to have people set apart to worship him" (Page 2). Now, the theologian in me goes crazy here. If we do not take the Word as absolute truth then what good is the rest of the Word. The word day is used. In our earthly understanding, that is a 24 hour period. I have no doubt that God could create in 24 hour time frames. I have no doubt. This is the God that in John 2 turns water into wine almost instantly. All they had to do was have faith and obey and go get water and it came out wine. This proves that our God is beyond our human understanding and can speed the creation process to be instant. But I will never push this theology over salvation.
