    I love what you guys are doing, but on this matter of fundamentalist creationism I think you are being dogmatic. Please take some time to carefully consider the arguments made in this link for an old earth creationism, and like the issue of the timing of the rapture, let us not divide over such a thing.

    That God created is indisputable, how He did it is not certain. Why He did it, is absolutely clear. The Bible's main purpose is to chronicle the plan of Redemption and highlight God's eternal victory over sin and death, to the glory of God through His grace. An old earth does not change mankind's need for a Savior, or the reality of the Universe being made through Jesus Christ our Lord. I grant that Old Earth Creationism comes along with its own set of implications and ponderings, but in reality it is the gospel which should stand as our rallying cry. To extend the gospel into being a complete answer to every question of life, ie my desired interpretation of the Bible as a whole is the gospel, is too broad. The precise shade of scarlet used in Aaron's robe is not a matter of salvific truth.

      Larry, the next step on the slippery slope you are on is that evil thing called theistic evolution, and who knows what after that!? Take God at His Word, won't you? He does not lie; He cannot lie.

    I am not against taking about Genesis or even laying out the evidenses that point to it as actual occurance a Historical natative of what happened.

    It is a shame, however, that we turn to scholarship to confirm a message beathed by God almighty Himself as if God word isn't trust worthy or as if He is unable to communicate with His creation, so we think a man is needed to stand between us and God. So this is the culture we live in and perpetuate in our fellowships rather than allowing the operation of the Body of Christ as spoken of in the Scriptures. It seems we prefer men (wise men) over God, and yet we do not see this as sin. It would seem w have had our consciences seared here.

    As a believer: Do we not have the mind of Christ? Do we not have the Holy Spirit in us?

    Who authored the scriptures anyways? 2 Peter 1:21 For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.

    If you must, form a judge and jury and lay out the evidence and the arguments and let these things speak for themselves so that you may truly learn them while practicing all the one anothers in the process.
