If the plain sense makes sense, seek no other sense to replace
it, lest you end up with nonsense.
Does it make sense that God can create the world in six days,
AS he said?
Of course it does, unless you have a warped view of God.
Why would God want us to take him figuratively in the amount
of time it took him to create the world but THEN take him literally when he commands us to work six literal days and rest
the seventh, when it was his example of creation that he wanted us to emulate in our work week?
SIX DAYS shalt thou labour, and do all thy work: 10 But the
seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy
manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates: 11 FOR IN SIX DAYS the
LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath
day, and hallowed it.
If God didn't create the world in six days then why would he use
that as an example of how we should work six literal days?
Does it make sense to believe that God actually created the
world in six days?
Of course it does, unless you have the prior assumptions,
traditions or theories of men (evolution) that would contradict what the scripture plainly and simply says
It is not only possible but certain that God created the world
in six days because:
!) The scripture says he did
2) He is able
3) There is no reason to believe that God doesn't mean what
4) There is no reason to NOT to believe scripture is accurate
and God's words. (Study Theomatics, fulfilled prophecy, testimonial evidence, Archaeological evidence)
If one believes God created the world in six days, then evolutionary
theory cannot be right because evolutionary theory requires millions of years to accomplish what God did in six days.
"Nowhere in the Bible are there any indications that the creation
account should be understood in any other way than as a factual report.
"The doctrine of theistic evolution undermines this basic way of
reading the Bible, as vouched for by Jesus, the prophets and the Apostles. Events reported in the Bible are reduced to mythical
imagery, and an understanding of the message of the Bible as being true in word and meaning is lost."
