Did God have a watch?
godrulz said:Simile: a comparison using like or as. A thousand years in God's everlasting duration is the same amount of time as 1000 years earth time. This verse is not a literal proof text to say that creation occurred over 6000 years. In light of eternity, a thousand years is a blink for God. For a man, it is many lifetimes. God's perception is different since He has existed forever. It seems forever for us that He has not returned. For Him, it is a moment.
Ages of creation is problematic from a literal view of Genesis 1 (you need light, food, water, etc. quickly or things would die off; the Genesis chronology also contradicts evolutionary theory).
Zakath said:I find two things interesting about the TOL Statment of Faith...
1. That they felt the need to use the Nicene Creed and omit the FILIOQUE.
2. That they felt the need to add their own "pet doctrines" to an historic creed.
Perhaps they felt the Church Fathers weren't closely enough aligned with the Almighty...
In some ways yes and in other ways no.Zakath said:Perhaps they felt the Church Fathers weren't closely enough aligned with the Almighty...
We share the same statement of faith with Denver Bible Church.godrulz said:
