    Default Evolution does not stand up to biblical scrutiny

    Creation occurred in six literal, consecutive days. (Gen 1, Ex 20:11) The Hebrew word for day, yom, always means literal, consecutive days when modified by a plural number. Yom was defined as a literal day when it was first used. (Gen 1:4,5) Each creation day had only one “evening and morning.”

    On the fourth creation day, the Sun, Moon, and stars were made. (Gen 1:14–19) If the word “day” in Genesis 1:14 means a long period, what do the words “year” or “night” mean in those verses?

    To survive, plants need the Sun and animals—especially insects. All were created within three literal days of each other. (Gen 1:11–23) Had it taken much longer, plants could not have survived. (Gen 1:5, 8, 13, 19, 23, 31)

    If evolution happened, then death was widespread before man evolved. But if death preceded man and was not a result of Adam’s sin, then sin is not the cause of death—so we do not need a Savior.

    Jesus always spoke the truth; in fact, He said He was the truth (Jn 14:6), and scripture is the truth (Jn 17:17). Certainly, Jesus knew the truth, because He was there in the beginning, and all things came into being through Him. (Jn 1:3) To say that Jesus knew the Bible contained false history, but didn’t want to tell people the truth, belies who Jesus was. He didn’t hide false ideas; He exposed them. He called the Old Testament writers, including Moses, who compiled Genesis 1–11, prophets. (Jn 5:46–47) By definition, prophets, when speaking God’s message, always spoke the truth. False prophets were stoned to death.

    Jesus was not constrained by culture, tradition, science, or concern of misunderstandings (Mt 5:1–12, Jn 6:53). Nor did He avoid subjects that were hard for listeners to understand, such as: end-times (Mt 24), the new birth (Jn 3:1–12), His crucifixion (Mt 12:40, Mk 8:31), or what follows death (Mt: 25:32–46, Jn 14:2). Jesus specifically referred to accounts in each of the first seven chapters of Genesis, something He would not have done if He knew they were not historical events. If we replace Jesus’ words with our ideas and claim they were “His real intent,” we can seemingly justify almost anything.

    Also, if there was any truth to evolution then the prophets, The Lord Jesus Christ, The Apostles or even The Church fathers would have written about it but they didn't.

    It is a modern day Heresy created by unsaved and evil men.

    "Then God made two great lights: the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night. He made the stars also. God set them in the firmament of the heavens to give light on the earth, and to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness. And God saw that it was good. So the evening and the morning were the fourth day." Gen 1:16-19

    oh I know there was light,,,,and we see that the topic of the 4th day deals with the amount of light, (greater and lesser)...
    But i was just asking if the Bible says that the "sun" was made on the 4th day?


    check the text ....

    so what Im saying is this:

    That the Bible tells us when the sun was created,and its not on the 4thday.

    the one single correct Bible word for all the stars in the night sky, and all the other things in outer space (such a planets,and blackholes, and dark matter, and all the things I dont even know the name for) , all that "space stuff' is correctly called by the one single Bible word of - "heavens"

    The term "Heavens" can be used correctly to talk about all that space stuff.

    and then when does the Bible teach that God made all this "Space stuff" like our sun?...."In the beginning"!!!!!!




    So this means that right at the very startof the creation story we find God busy creating the source for all the light we will be reading about in the Genesis story!

    there is no need to invent a "source-less light"....for the source is already made at Genesis 1:1and its still there inthe sky today!

    "So Alan what is it talking about on the 4th day then?"


    Im glad you asked that.

    The answer is, "Exactly what it says its talking about....'light" and the amount of light seen on the earth.

    Some greater, some lesser....

    so the "sun" is not said to be created on the 4th day at all...and that fits with Gen 1:1 when the heavens (including the stars like our sun) were created in the beginning.
    But what are reading about on the 4th day is a changing in the AMOUNTS of light seen...

    Thats why the Bible makes use of the term "Greater" and "Lesser" for they are terms that talk about the AMOUNT of light seen, not their source!!!!!!!!!

    (Did everybody catch that?...Greater and lesser are terms that talk about "amounts" of light)

    Their source is already created on Day 1....but on day 4 we clearly have a change in the AMOUNTS seen.




    Now you can ask me"why ?.......I have lots to say about that too...








    Basically what im teaching here is just looking at the text as it is written, and saying,"Amen"....
    i dont feel the need to add to the text at all.

    If the Bible says that the first things God made in the beginning were the "Heavens" i say, "Amen"...
    I dont need to twist things around so that it has to teach something that it clearly does not say in black and white.

    The same thing is true for the events of the 4th day too!
    The bible teaches us that on the 4th day we see changes on the amount of light seen...
    greater and lesser" are terms that talk about the amount of light.

    I dont need to twist anything else into the 4th day.

    If the Bible tells me that greater and lesser light was seen, i say "Amen"....


    Why cant we just believe the Bible as written?

    Alan, you better check the text. "Then God made two great lights: the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night"
    Every reputable commentary concludes that these "two" lights are the sun and the moon, where did you get the idea that these "two" lights are not the sun and the moon. Who taught you that? Or is that your own conclusion?

    no...check to see if the text actually says that the "sun" was made then...

    Check is the text actually says that the "moon' was made then.


    Oh.....and as for the stars, many people believe that the Bible teaches that the stars were made on the 4th day....do you see that in your Bible?

    If you do, then you better check the King James and look for the hints about the words that are added to the Text in that verse by the editors of other bibles.....the King James bible will show you the added words.


    Imjust suggesting you read the Bible, not add any words to the text, and believe what you read and not need to appeal to commentary.


    I mean if the Bible were written so that just to understand it you needed to wait for a commentary to tell you what it says, you are out of luck then if you dont got a handy commentary around I guess......


    Butif the bible were written in such a way as to just read it,stick to the words you see there, and you can believe it as its written, then all people in every place and in every time can learn from the Bible....even if they never have a "commentary" to set them straight on some teaching that might not be in the Bible as it appears, but were just stuff the commentary wanted you to believe 'should" have been in the Bible had they been in charge of making it....




    So......what so wrong with believing the Bible as its written?

    Why cant we believe the writer of the Genesis story used the correct words?

    Why cant 'light" be talking about "light"?

    Alan, the KJ says God made "two" great lights and set "them" in the heavens on day four. Really, what more do you need to show that these are the sun and the moon?

    what if its just what it says it is?

    how would that chage your views on what is being taught?

    What if you dont need to replace any words in the text at all?

    what if you believe it as it appears?


    what if the writer had WANTED to talk about the things he wrote down?

    what if the writer did not need you to fix things ?





    In other words.....what if the writer of this story had wanted to talk about the greater and lesser amounts of light that changed on the 4th day?......and so that is why he talks about the greater and lesser amounts of light!!!!!

    Just for me, I want you to try to read the text one time and believe it as it appears, regardless if this then agrees with YEC or not.

    this means that when you read that God made all the "Heavens" first at the very start,"In the beginning" you believed it...

    I'm seriousely surprised that you are defending evolution when it is such an anti Christian theory that has done so much to destroy the faith of people's belief in God. Not just in the Christian belief in God but other faiths also.

    Also, it was created by ungodly men specifially to decieve and curupt the world view of people and especially young people in universitys.

    What's the first thing that the bible listed that God created in the beginning? ...

    You will either answer based on the text or you will try to dodge around what you see clearly the text says.

    What will you do?

    How many people have come to believe in The Lord Jesus Christ through Evolution compared to being converted to atheism through evolution ?

    and the answer is- "In the beginning, God Created the HEAVENS and the EARTH"





    So the Bible lists the "Heavens"as the very first thing God created.
    Thats not my opinion, thats what the Text says.
    Some YEC teachers might not like it, but thats too bad, the Text says what the Text says.....

    I just read it and believe it.

    now why dont YEC teachers like to answer my question asked above about the first things God created in the story?.....The ANSWER is- that they dont like what the Bible says because it totally will mess up what they teach about Young Earth Creationism.

    Its that simple....
    They dont like what the Bible teaches so that dont answer my questions about that topic.

    What will they do when I ask them what the Bible says?....The try to change the topic...they bring up stuff not connected to my question in the hope of getting off the topic of what the Bible teaches....

    You shouldn't call it evolution. You should call it YEC vs Really Old Earth or something else because honestly evolution only leads to atheism.
