Dealing With Misconceptions : 10 Things The Bible Never Said About Creation by KingEbukasBlog(m): 12:46pm On May 10, 2015
Hello Christians who are really passionate about God . Today , I want to talk about many misconceptions about the creation story . I've read interesting debates concerning this issue(creation story) and I want to address some things most Christians find mind boggling .

Errmm , I wanted to write about pre-adamic creation (life before Adam , yes there was) but let me deal with this first.

So here are few things the Bible never said about the creation story

1.The beginning was 6,000 years ago
Genesis 1:1
1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
Ive always talked about God being a self-existent and ageless being .He is the creator of living things , planets , universe etc. Now ,this verse has always been misunderstood . Its just talking about the original creation of the universe billions of years ago .

2.The earth was created 6,000 years ago
Genesis 1:1-2

1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2 Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.

My God ! Christians have been mocked with the 'earth is 6,000 years old ' thingy and its very embarrassing . People get these two verses mixed up . Periods of Genesis 1:1 and Genesis 1:2 are different . Genesis 1:2 is talking about the period of restoration of earth and recreation of natural forms in it . A lot happened between these two periods which will be addressed in another thread.

3.Light and darkness were created in day 1 as seen in Genesis 1:5

Genesis 1:5

5 God called the light “day,” and the darkness he called “night.” And there was evening, and there was morning—the first day.
The functionalities of the sun and moon on earth were restored on day 1

4.The sun , moon and stars were created on day 4

No no no they weren't .They were created in the beginning before the existence of earth . God just regulated them in connection with the restored earth

5.Animals , birds ,man were first created on day 5 and 6

Some were created during the pre-adamic age but were destroyed by the first universal flood (Lucifer's flood). This would be addressed fully in a new thread . A quick bible reference

2 Peter 3:5-7

5 But they deliberately forget that long ago by God’s word the heavens came into being and the earth was formed out of water and by water. 6 By these waters also the world of that time was deluged and destroyed. 7 By the same word the present heavens and earth are reserved for fire, being kept for the day of judgment and destruction of the ungodly.

6.Vegetation came forth for the first time in day 3 .
Dear Christian, Jeremiah 4:23-26 doesn't agree with you

23 I looked at the earth,and it was formless and empty;and at the heavens,and their light was gone.

24 I looked at the mountains,and they were quaking;all the hills were swaying.

25 I looked, and there were no people;every bird in the sky had flown away.
26 I looked, and the fruitful land was a desert; all its towns lay in ruins before the Lord, before his fierce anger.

This proves that there was vegetation during the pre-adamic age

7.The earth was created 6,000 years ago

No sir/ma , it was restored 6,000 years ago
A quick look at Genesis 1:1-2
1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2 Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.
"... and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters ", what waters ? And we all thought the earth was created in day 3 ! Seeeee ... after God destroyed everything on earth in the first universal flood , there was chaos and it was flooded . God then began its restoration as His Spirit was hovering over the waters.

And yes ,Satan lived among the pre-adamic men or during the age of the 'first earth' .Look at Isaiah 14:12-14

12 How you have fallen from heaven,morning star, son of the dawn!
You have been cast down to the earth,you who once laid low the nations!

13 You said in your heart,“I will ascend to the heavens.I will raise my throne above the stars of God.I will sit enthroned on the mount of assembly,on the utmost heights of Mount Zaphon.[a]
14 l ascend above the tops of the clouds;I will make myself like the Most High.”

This happened during pre-adamic age not after the 'creation ' ( recreation) . Some think this happened moments before the "talking snake" caused the fall of man

8.That Adam was the first man God created .
Adam was a recreation of man in God's image . Isaiah 14:12-14 , Jeremiah 4:23-26 and 2 Peter 3:5-7 quoted above have already proven that 'men and nations' existed before Adam .

9.That the universe , earth are a product of evolution .
Nope, God created all of them

Ephesians 3:9
9 and to make plain to everyone the administration of this mystery, which for ages past was kept hidden in God, who created all things

Colossians 1:15-18
15 The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. 16 For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him. 17 He is before all things, and in him all things hold together. 18 And he is the head of the body, the church; he is the beginning and the firstborn from among the dead, so that in everything he might have the supremacy.

10. Man is a product of evolution - from lower life forms , to cave men
The Bible says God created man perfect and intelligent
Genesis 1:27

27 So God created mankind in his own image,in the image of God he created them;male and female he created them.

Evolution denies the first cause. The theory starts with matter being in existence . The theory is that all forms of life derived from gradual modification from simpler forms to a complex form.

Genesis 1:21

21 So God created the great creatures of the sea and every living thing with which the water teems and that moves about in it, according to their kinds, and every winged bird according to its kind. And God saw that it was good.

A Christian should not accept evolution because

1.evolution says man evolved from beast , so our Lord Jesus Christ was an evolved beast or a product of evolution?
2.The bible clearly stated that we (men) are created in God's image , ET clearly denies that
3.ET also degrades God's image to a mere beast
4.It nullifies the idea of the Bible creation by God
5. It denies miracles , the supernatural and the bodily resurrection of Christ ... and I can go on and on

Wonderful Nonsense;
especially the part you said Adam was not the first man.
Are you serious?

It was after God said "Let us make man in our own image..." That He made Adam.

So, you mean there were nations somewhere at that time?
Yet God would say "Let us make man in our own image and likeness?"

Do you by any chance know that you re implying that God was not actually aware of those "nations" you are talking about?

Exactly why I called this a packaged nonsense!

Hmmm!


But saying sth is self existent is contradictory!

There is this rule that says nothing create itself (non-symmetrical).

Also, where was the creator when He (or She) was creating the world? Can a creator be in wt He (or She) was (is) creating?

Creationism is a big problem on it own and goes beyond Biblical accounts cos there are so many unanswered questions.

But since religion needs 'faith' (dogma) to thrive, such questions are treated as unnecessary.

I'll assume this thread is for the 'religious' people.

My philosophical opinion!

Religion is not science. There are so many things we can never agree on.

You started out wanting to clarify certain issues but ended up confusing your readers.

Many of the verses you quoted do not have any correlation with the points you wanted to buttress.

By the way, whether you believe the world is six thousand years old or six million years does not make you a good christian.

The bible advises that true christians should not engage in unnecessary arguments like the unbelievers.

You are right dear, but i believe you still need to study some points again in a living christian Bible. Christianity has nothing against some of the points you've claim she do. Research again okay? If possible try to understand the teachings of Christianity so that Christianity can understand you. All the same kudos for the intelligent brain work
