I’m probably going to lose some of you today, but that’s okay. I must speak the truth, and the truth is offensive to those who are not fully committed to it. Too many Christians compromise their belief in the Word of God in favor of the wisdom of men. Simply writing that statement should reveal the foolishness and futility of such a belief. Any time we opt for man’s wisdom over God’s Word, we set ourselves at odds with God and proclaim we know more than He does.
My topic today is with the creation account as recorded in the Bible. The Word of God says the Lord created the heavens and the earth, the land and the seas, the animals, and all of humanity in six days. The best Hebrew scholars throughout history affirm there is no other way to understand those six days other than six literal twenty-four-hour days. That is what God says He did, and that is what He did.
