Comment on Dr. Geraty clarifies his “Challenge” to literal 6-day creationism by Sandy Bandelin.
To everyone involved:
I have been an Adventist most of my life. I had a brief period of time where I left the church and belonged nowhere. I came back to the Adventist church because there literally was no other church that followed the Bible
truths as they are stated in the Word. I am appalled at the fact that we, as Adventists, have entertained the idea that Genesis 1 does not ‘explain’ the literal creation week. How does Mr. Lawrence Geraty explain away that God stated ‘the evening and the morning were the first day’, etc., etc.? God did not say ‘the decade and the century was the first day’, or ‘the century and the millenium’ was the first day. I would like him (Mr. Geraty) to explain that away. If he believes what I think he is saying, there are many other schools who teach that curriculum that would love to hire him on.
I will pray for his understanding to happen and that God will impress upon him that God is much bigger than he gives him credit to be…and that God can ‘literally’ create the earth and entire universes with His word alone and doesn’t have to wait milleniums for them to evolve.
Thank you, Shane, for being diligent and standing up for truth.
