Meaning of yôm When Moses, under the inspiration of God, compiled the account of creation in Genesis 1, he used the Hebrew word yôm for 'day'. He combined yôm with numbers ('first day', 'second day', 'third day', etc.) and with the words 'evening and morning', and the first time he employed it he c...

Re: Literal Genesis.

I'd like to say I no longer adhere to a literal Genesis position. Well that came as a *shock* ;) Yet, literal isn't always necessarily correct anyway. For example, was the snake in Genesis a literal serpent, or actually symbolic for Satan as Revelation 12:9 implies? Was the tree of life that was re...

Re: Literal Genesis.

Looks like the majority of Americans do though :) I'm disgusted with the world so I really don't care. The majority of "Christians" can't tell Genesis from Revelation. And here's something that answers them: http://www.answersingenesis.org/home/area/faq/genesis.asp I don't see the answer to the spe...

Separating light and darkness I'd say isn't a problem for either YEC or OEC...but, towards you, since you're OEC, think of this: "Let there be light"=Big Bang (photons were one of the elementary particles present) Separating the light from the darkness=condensing matter into stars (light) by any ch...

As an Eastern Orthodox, I can pray most people out of hell. Sucks to be protestant or Catholic. :lol:

Re: Literal Genesis.

Hey K, I'm going off on vacation so I won't be able to reply until after Thursday. I just want to thank you for the tree of life/Jesus part since it gave me an idea. Hopefully I'll have time to think it over on the bus ride. :wink:

Well, you Mastermind make a good point, I however have no good answer to your question(s), so I will leave it up to someone else. I do believe that the Genesis creation story may be symbolic in one form or another, it may be or may not be, we don't know. But we have to take into account that God ca...

Literal Genesis.

I'd like to say I no longer adhere to a literal Genesis position. For those that do, I have a few questions (I'm starting out with one problem and will work through them as they are solved/attempted to my satisfaction): First, we have these verses (for YEC mostly): Gen 1:3 And God said, "Let there b...

What a waste of time. Gilder kept chanting "information can't come about randomly". Dawkins said some crap about explaining complexity with complexity being absurd and was being a jerk for the most part.

Works and salvation.

Can somebody post all the NT verses that say work doesn't save? (No K, I'm not being lazy, you'll see my point soon enough :P )

Only the EO church and the RCC have confession so only they need to be sworn to secrecy.

LaVeyan satanism is a parody of Christianity. Anybody who seriously adheres to it is an idiot, plain and simple. You might as well say Scientology is all 100% fact.

Evolution vs ID debate

Dawkins vs Gilder. I'm listening to it right now. I'll give my opinion after I'm done. Meanwhile feel free to listen to it here:

I'm not "open minded" I've experienced it. You know what to do with your skeptic dictionary.
