What do you think about: God Created the world in 6 days?

I looked up the word "DAY" and it also translates into a new birth, and we are born again so wouldn't a New Birth be a more accurate translation? FYI I know day is only used, all through the Bible as a day or new day. Day also can be translated as a new season. If you believe God created the whole world in six days I won't argue the point

Dear "Golfer",
Unfortunately, the HOLY BIBLE was written by fallible and mortal authors. Although it contains many jewels of wisdom, it also contains a lot of contradictions, inaccuracies and fairy tales.
i am not surprised when people sometimes disagree with my Posts, and comments. That is due to the fact that CHRISTIANITY IS THE MOST DIVIDED RELIGION IN THE WORLD. if you do not believe me, please access: WIKIPEDIA'S: "LIST OF CHRISTIAN DENOMINATIONS".
The point i would like to make is that the OMNIPOTENT CREATOR OF THE UNIVERSE DID NOT NEED A REST AFTER HE CREATED THE WORLD. Why? Because the OMNIPOTENT CREATOR IS A SPIRITUAL ENTITY.
SPIRITUAL ENTITIES CAN CREATE PLANETS, STARS, GALAXIES, AND EVEN MORE UNIVERSES, WITHOUT GETTING EXHAUSTED.

Kind regards,
John Romer

Read the first verse of Genesis. It gives NO indication when the Earth was made. In the following verses, it states 6 days. Based on archaeology, geology, and so on the Earth is billions of years old.

From that we can logically put together this scenario:

1) God made the Earth some time in the distant past, probably billions of years ago.
2) Something happened to destroy the surface of the Earth. Maybe the same catastrophe that destroyed the dinosaurs.
3) Some time after that God renewed the Earth in 6 days making it habitable for humans.

Hum! That is certainly a fresh interesting read of this Myth that " God Created the world
in 6 days". But I still think that this idea of yours is anything but real and that the
evolutionary idea is the real one. Still a good try :)

mmerlinn 2 weeks 1 day ago

First, I never SAID that my idea was fact. I only gave ONE POSSIBLE interpretation of what
is written.

Second, you THINK that the evolutionary IDEA is the real one? Don't you KNOW one way or
the other?

I think we have such a thing as Evolution which shows life developed on Earth over Billions of Years.
So it is fine for simple minds that "God Created the world in 6 days". But for learned People, that is just not even remotely True.

The Genesis creation narrative is the creation myth of both Judaism and Christianity. ...
In the first part (Genesis 1:1–2:3) Elohim, the Hebrew generic word for God, creates the heaven and the earth in six days, starting with darkness and light on the first day, and ending with the creation of mankind on the sixth day.

I was thinking about each of the "days' mentioned in creation as being a thoisand years
each, by applying the principle of "with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a
thousand years as one day". But then I noticed that each day ended with, "And the evening
and the morning were...". So this is referring to cycles of night and day, which means
each day in the account of creation are literal days.

Jade123 9 months 1 day ago

To God they are days to man they are unimaginable.

"And the evening and the morning were..."

BroRando 8 months 4 weeks ago

Thanks, the Bible doesn't state the length of each creative day. Most say that the Six
Creatives is how long it took for the earth to be created, however, they ignore that fact
that the earth already existed before the Six Creative Days began. "And the
earth was without form, and void; and darkness was on the face of the deep
. And the
Spirit of God moved on the face of the waters." (Genesis 1:2) That is the intro of Genesis
before the first creative day.

BroRando 8 months 4 weeks ago

Actually (John 1:1) supercedes (Genesis 1:1). Before (Genesis 1:1) creation as we know
already had countless angels. Angels were created individually, notice this inspired
scripture. "When the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for
joy?" (Job 38:7) Notice morning stars in plural which is the beginning of Creation along
with all sons of God. At the closing of Rev. Jesus stated, " I am the root and the
offspring of David, and the bright and morning star." (Rev 20:16)

BroRando 8 months 4 weeks ago

(John 1:1)
(Col 1:15)
(Rev 3:14)

What are stars? "stars are the angels" (Rev 1:20 KJV)

RonSM 8 months 4 weeks ago

Yes, I also mentioned the original creation of heaven and earth in verse 1, in my comment
further below. And that verse 2 shows something had happened that destroyed the earth and
all life on it, and put it into darkness and chaos. The following verses after that is God
fixing it, and bringing light and life back to the earth again. >

BroRando 8 months 4 weeks ago

Interesting

RonSM 8 months 4 weeks ago

But notice each time it says, "And the evening and the morning were...". This tells us
that each of these days were cycles of night and day. So these were 24 hour days, rather
than long periods of time.The scripture, "with the Lord one day is as a thousand years,
and a thousand years as one day", doesn't neccessarily mean a literal amount of time. It
can also mean God speading up His work, so He can cause more to happen in a shorter time.
,>

RonSM 8 months 4 weeks ago

For example, instead of a day lasting for a thousand years, God can do a thousand years
worth of work in a single day. And that scripture is just an example of how God can cause
more to happen in a shorter amount of time. So that can apply to a situation in our own
life.

BroRando 8 months 4 weeks ago

Some creationists teach that the earth is just a few thousand years old. However,
according to the Bible, the earth and the universe existed before the six days of
creation. (Genesis 1:1)

Yes, that's what I said, "the original creation of heaven and earth in verse 1, in my
comment further below. And that verse 2 shows something had happened that destroyed the
earth and all life on it, and put it into darkness and chaos. The following verses after
that is God fixing it, and bringing light and life back to the earth again. And that each
of those days are 24 hour days where God was doing that, because it tells us that there
were cycles of night and day. >

RonSM 8 months 4 weeks ago

But heaven and earth were originally created before that as recorded in verse 1.

Jade123 8 months 4 weeks ago

Look God created himself, than the universe, and everything in it, and then he destroyed
it 5 times since the beginning. He's back, and he's less than happy at the inhabitants on
the face of his world, in his image, doing the most ridiculous of things in His name. He's
really to understand, and starts every statement with I command you! If God doesn't talk
to you in a commanding tone than you are not talking to God. I wouldn't worry about it.

Jade123 8 months 4 weeks ago

Oh and that stands true no-mater how much mankind learns to manipulate the weather.

RonSM 8 months 4 weeks ago

To Jade123:
All things will be revealed. And we will all stand before God, so you can tell Him that
if that's what you really want to say to Him.

Jade123 8 months 4 weeks ago

I already talk to him every day...he knows. How do you think he feels about you telling me
this? Oh and check out my latest YouTube video https://youtu.be/UsCGq7wDa2Q

BroRando 8 months 4 weeks ago

How does he feel about what, that he's not eternal but created himself? What scripture
states that? I'm sure he's not pleased when you call God a creation.

@golfer nice question
Day= light, revelation
New day= new light, new revelation
The morning of each day is ushered into existence by the dawn of the rising sun & the sun dispenses his illuminating and prolific rays to every portion of the visible horizon, warming the whole earth with his embrace of light, and giving new-born life and energy to plant and tree, and beast and man, who, at its touch, awake from sleep. The darkness of thee night is also dissipated by its rays. Every day of God is a new birth or revelation. And that's the reason why God's most advanced creation was created last. The last was made to be first. i.e to rule over the former because He was the most advanced revelation of God's light (i.e he was made in Gods image/reflected God's nature)

Actually the earth was void, and empty before the first day because there was not yet light for there to be a day until he brought forth the light (Genesis 1: 1-5) so then we do not know exactly how old the earth really is. It was the everything on the earth that had been formed, and everything created on it within 6 literal days.

By New Birth did you mean "The Start of the Morning Light" which could be the implication of that. The Hebrew term for the word "DAY" in Genesis I believe is Yome/Yom of which by implication is a reference to the heat of the day in a Strong's Dictionary.
