Re: Literally 6 Days

Hi Dwight, There are other people who certainly share your opinion about the passages regarding unclean foods. I can understand how doing things the Law prohibited would make a person uncomfortable. In that regard, what are your views on the following passages? Matthew 15:11; 1 Corinthians 10:25; Ro...

Re: Literally 6 Days

Your so-called reasons appear to me to be vague generalities. I don't remember you giving me any specific examples of any of them. If you're seriously willing to at least consider the viewpoint I'm presenting, please browse this thread again to find my references. They aren't hard to find if you're...

Re: Literally 6 Days

God obviously knows our nature. He knows that we will take Genesis literally, unless Genesis itself gives us a reason not to. I've already given you several aspects of Genesis that I believe give us such reasons. You may not find them convincing. I and others do. That's certainly your right. Ultima...

Re: Literally 6 Days

God's word needs no embellishment to make it more entertaining. I'm not suggesting that God embellished His word merely to make it more entertaining. I think His purposes were loftier than that. Even loftier than merely communicating a basic understanding of how He created the universe. As counter ...

Re: The "little horn" and "the man of lawlessness"

Hi Steve, The reformers believed the ten horns represented the European nations into which the Roman Empire dissolved after the fall of Rome in 476. I would also mention that the above view of the little horn was not held widely in the Eastern Church, which saw the four beasts of Daniel 7 as Babylon...

Re: Literally 6 Days

How do I know that you are telling me the truth? Maybe you are just giving me a fictitious story about what you believe. Or maybe you are giving me literal truth wrapped in fictional details. Fundamentally, you don't know. But you would use some process of evaluating my writings to help you make a ...

Re: Literally 6 Days

I do not wish to ignore the meaning of "yom". What I'm saying is that one can't tell whether "yom" is being used figuratively or not simply by the word itself. The word may be used literally to mean an actual day relative to the context but if the context itself is largely wrapped in fictional detai...

Re: Literally 6 Days

So why would you single out just Genesis one to apply a symbolic meaning of "day" and not apply it that same way in the rest of Genesis? Or do you see symbolic uses of it elsewhere in Genesis? Perhaps one might expect to see other symbolic uses of the word "day" in other parts of Genesis but this e...

Re: Literally 6 Days

There is nothing about Exodus 20:8-11 that demands a literal 24-hour day for creation. Regardless, of how a dictionary defines words, those words can always be used figuratively at the discretion of the author. All the passage in Exodus may be saying is that we are to follow the same pattern in our ...
