No,I'm not Kenny.The only thing that matters to me is the truth of God's word,not my opinion or anybody else's.All I said was that the more and more I learn and study that it makes me feel like the YEC interpretation came about from lazy bible reading and for that,I have offended people? That was not my intention at all and if I offended anybody I apologize however I have reasons for thinking like I do.
Maybe I should give a few reasons why I feel like this.If you have read and studied the bible about Noah's flood and have a good understanding of it then when you read 2nd Peter 3:5-7 you will realize based on what the text says that this cannot be referring to Noah's flood and yet this seems to have got overlooked and because of it people have assumed it is talking about Noah's flood when it is'nt,it is describing a flood much,much worse than Noah's flood and so if you realize this? You ask yourself,if this is not referring to Noah's flood then what flood was it referring to and does the bible mention another flood somewhere that I overlooked?Instead of just thinking it applies to Noah's flood. And if you look for another biblical flood? The only other flood is in Genesis 1:2 and then you realize that Peter is taking us back to Genesis 1, not Noah's flood and you start from Genesis 1.
But another example is another point Peter makes in the new testament in 2nd Peter 3:3-4 where Peter says" Knowing this first,that there shall come in the last days scoffers/mockers walking after their own lusts.And saying,Where is the promise of his coming?For since the fathers fell asleep\died all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.
OK so this part right here"for since the fathers died all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation." The beginning would mean Genesis 1:1 that all things have gone on continually since Genesis 1:1 so that anybody teaching this in the last days is wrong. And YEC teaches this.
Then Peter says:
For this they willingly are ignorant of,that by the word of God the heavens were of old,and the earth standing out of the water and in the water( Cannot be Noah's flood): Whereby the world at that time perished: ( again not referring to Noah's flood) because the earth was not in and out of the water in Noah's flood like it was in Genesis 1" Peter goes on to say " But the heavens and earth which are now( since Genesis 1:3-31) by the same word are being kept in store,reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and and perdition of ungodly men."
This present heaven and earth we live in now has never ended or stopped including with Noah's flood,this present heaven and earth was the same heaven and earth before and after Noah's flood but yet people make Noah's flood fit into the former flood that caused the former heavens and earth and world to perish which has been overlooked and this world goes on until the day of judgment of fire against day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.
So there had to have been a break or a gap between the former world that perished and this world we now live in since Adam and Eve. And this is where the idea of the gap theory came from,not from the OT or Hebrew.2nd Peter 3 reveals 3 different heavens and earths and worlds as we know a new heaven and earth will be made in the future after Jesus's thousand year reign on this earth.
These are just a few examples as I could give more.
Hebrews 12:2-3 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith;who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross,despising the shame,and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.
2nd Corinthians 4:4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not,lest the light of this glorious gospel of Christ,who is the image of God,should shine unto them.
