Time is for Humans   Leave a comment

I don’t believe that the creation account in Genesis 1 and 2 is threatened by the theories of science. The Bible is not a book of science. It’s a book of history and a specific kind of history, written for the people of the era from their perspective, inspired but not dictated by God. It therefore does not have to be scientifically precise. Science loosely agrees with the Bible with the theory of the Big Bang and even evolution is not really incompatible with the Biblical account … provided you recognize that the Bible is not a book of science and that God was acting outside of time until He created human beings.

Time is a human concept. We are born, we live, we die. We divide up our lives into increments so that we can keep track. God is eternal. He never had a beginning, He will never have an end. What use are “days” to Him? He has no need to keep track of days, weeks, years, and centuries. Therefore, you have a description of creation broken into “days” before there is a sun to revolve around an earth to mark those “days.” Was it six literal days or six periods of time? We don’t know and it probably doesn’t matter.

Trust me – at the Great White Throne and the Bema Seat judgments our entrance into heaven will not be based upon our belief in a literal six-days creation or some form of theistic evolution. We will rise or fall on whether we believe Jesus Christ is God crucified for the forgiveness of our sins and risen on the third day to show He has overcome the broken nature of creation.

Genesis 1 is a side issue compared to that!
