Re: Question about Genesis

On day 1 light was created (sun, moon, starts) but they weren't visible. I don't see a problem with God 'letting' things happen on day 4 and not actually creating anything. Photosynthesis does not require direct sunlight to occur. Many a plant life function very well in the shade. I want you all to...

Re: Question about Genesis

Thanks for the replies. I clicked on the link and from reading am I to surmise that Genesis 1:16 (the fourth day) is just reiterating the fact that God had already created the sun and the moon on the first day when he created the heavens and the earth? Genesis 1:14 through 1:18 Then God said, "Let ...

Question about Genesis

Ok, so maybe this isn't a big deal but I recently watched a show, it might have been the same show about Creation that made me wonder about the OT. Anyway, they made a point that in Genesis God created day and night on the first day. Then on the 3rd day he seems to create day and night yet again (Ge...

Re: Struggling with the Old Testament

The Isrealites are still God's chosen people. The blessing was passed to the Gentiles as well. Paul says "for the Jew first, and then for the Gentile. This doesn't make sense from the Christian perspective since the Jews reject Christ as savior. And the only way to heaven is through Jesus. Am I cor...

Re: Struggling with the Old Testament

Thank you all for weighing in on this. Your responses were very helpful and lifted my spirits. It's been an emotional roller coaster for me this past year and as I mentioned faith has really helped to see me through. Unfortunately, the type of research and questioning I'm doing now should have been ...

This past year I went through a personal crisis that pushed me to evaluate my relationship with God, or lack thereof. I have leaned heavily on my Christian faith to see me through. However, in the last c...
