Lee, regarding Genesis 1:3-5 even Professor James Barr, Oriel Professor of the interpretation of the Holy Scripture, Oxford University, says you are wrong! And he doesn't believe any of Scripture is historical truth! He says : "..so far as I know, there is no professor of Hebrew or Old Testament at any world-class university who who does not believe that the writer(s) of Genesis 1-11 intended to convey to their readers the ideas that:

a. "Creation took place in a series of six days which were the same as the days of 24 hours we now experience."

How does it feel when even a total BiblioSceptic says you are wrong?

And he doesn't know of any of his standard who agree with you!
---Warwick on 12/8/11


Lee, regarding the light for the first three days God says this light was all that was needed for the first three days. He created light and there was evening and there was morning-the first day. But you say there wasn't. But as you should know it is not light which governs day-length but the earth's speed of rotation. However that seems to have eluded you.

It is obvious you are so Sceptical of God's power that you will not believe He can light the world without the sun! Such scepticism.

Considering your scepticism how is He going to light heaven where He says there will be no sun! Oil lamps perhaps?
---Warwick on 12/9/11


Lee: "On the other hand, if I limited myself to the Scripture alone, I may find myself re-inventing the wheel..."

At least you would have something useful. The anti-biblical inventions that you have either derived on your own or from your UNORTHODOX Bible expositors are about as useful as a square wheel.

Any doctrine that conflicts with the clear teachings of the Bible is a false doctrine (c.f. Isa 8:20). You should be more like the Bereans, and test your Bible expositors by scripture rather than testing scripture by them.
---jerry6593 on 12/9/11


Trav //Just not the authority he assumes.// On the other hand, if I limited myself to the Scripture alone, I may find myself re-inventing the wheel on may issues.....---lee1538 on 12/8/11

U are resilient. Thing separating the Bereans is willingness to work/research proving true or false.

It always flags out, one not willing to look. Willing to research. Willing to acknowledge that a question still exists.

When one "presumes" they know it all...they are instantly foolish. When lazy, is evident. When lacking of confidence they name drop presumed/assumed/self elected authority's of "men". Ha, the futility. By comparison of "GOD"s help.
---Trav on 12/9/11


Lee, don't make up questions. The real one was:

Lee, again I ask:

Let us look at Exodus 20:11 "For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested on the seventh day. Therefore the LORD blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy."

Using Scripture or the rules of grammar tell me why this cannot be taken as written? If you believe it to be poetry, allegory, or metaphor etc please explain why.

I can understand why you have ducked this question.
---Warwick on 12/8/11




Trav //Just not the authority he assumes.

I rely heavily on the teachers that Lord has given to His church for our edification and instruction. Otherwise, I would be offering only opinions like Warwick.

On the other hand, if I limited myself to the Scripture alone, I may find myself re-inventing the wheel on may issues, so to speak, as with more study I would come to the same conclusion as other Bible expositors.

Yes, I often frustrate or make people mad as apparently much of what they believe has never been challenged. We are often dealing with people on this forum that have a kindergarten knowledge of Scripture.
---lee1538 on 12/8/11


Warwick//Using Scripture or the rules of grammar tell me why this cannot be taken as written?
---
Genesis 1:3,5 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. And the evening and the morning were the 1st day.

The source of the light during the first creation period was not the sun.

1:14 And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night, and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for DAYS, and years:

Now the source of light was the sun.

Obviously, the light source is was different than of the 4th period of creation.

In both cases, the period ('day') is DIFFERENT and the record does not address the duration of the first 3 days.
---lee1538 on 12/8/11


Warwick - read Genesis 1:14

And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night, and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for DAYS, and years:

When God created the sun, one purpose was to define seasons, and DAYS and years.

So we have the definition of 'day' when the sun was created.

Your problem is that you are stuck on the 10 commandments believing that the Sabbath commandment is applicable to Christian whether it be the Jewish Sabbath or what later became referred to as the Christian Sabbath.

I do not believe the Scripture tells us to observe any day as holy unless it is our desire to do so. Romans 14:5-6 is clear on that issue.
---lee1538 on 12/8/11


Lee, again is ask:

Let us look at Exodus 20:11 "For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested on the seventh day. Therefore the LORD blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy."

You do NOT have to be wise or even intelligent to see that the Genesis account does NOT mention anything about the duration of the first 3 periods of Creation.
---lee1538 on 12/7/11

I think he is intelligent. Just not the authority he assumes.
Having built part of his doctrinal house on crumbly sand he is continually working to replace it. A cycle that never ends. If he openly researchs a cement source and stone source it is the same as admission. Way too humbling for a rich man or educated men who establish themselves on each other. Similar circle.
Matthew 7:26
And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand:
---Trav on 12/8/11




Lee, Wang, McCabe, and Kelly are examples of Christian academics who believe Genesis does define a 24hr day. Conversely Barr is a complete BiblioSceptic who nonetheless says Genesis 1:3-5 does define 24hr days.

Are these men fools as well Lee?

The irony of your comment "I believe everthing in the Word of God while you do not" is not lost on me. I believe what Genesis ch.1 says. You do not, but you have the gall to claim you do!

It is you who expresses opinions in direct opposition to what God's word says. Therefore James 1:5 is for you.

I do not call you fool because a fool is lost in his own folly. You are worse, being in comand of your faculties while rejecting what God says.
---Warwick on 12/7/11


Adetunji, I understand what you mean but think it better not to use 'race' as it carries undertones of inferiority, and superiority.
---Warwick on 12/7/11


Trav - //You might remind some Lee that the wisest men of Christ day and from the Genesis to Rev.....couldn't see.

You do NOT have to be wise or even intelligent to see that the Genesis account does NOT mention anything about the duration of the first 3 periods of Creation.

Warwick is simply exposing himself as a willfully ignorant person.

In compliance with Proverbs 18:2 he offers only an OPINION and thus plays the role of the fool.
---lee1538 on 12/7/11


Christians. They want GOD, but they want him on their terms.
It is fine thing for an individual to select a wife/husband and the relationship is set apart forever or until Death.
But, if GOD the creator does it....it cannot be honored. A notable distinction in honor.
Deut 14:2
For thou art an holy people unto the LORD thy God, and the LORD hath chosen thee to be a peculiar people unto himself, above all the nations that are upon the earth.
Israel was not to mix...there was separation....it was enforced by GOD. The Anti-Christ Judah today....still does not condone mixing knowing law. Must be "racism. Warwick must get to work on their il-legal attitudes.
---Trav on 12/7/11


But it was only from which Noah's sons came nationalities, their seed..
They were still gathered in one area until the Tower of Babel on which God confounded them and scattered them abroad. Gen 11
Notice Gen 10:5 every one after his tongue.
Geneologies overlap accounts.
Notice Gen 10:10 the kingdom of Babel.
If one would read the geneologies in correspondence with their account counterparts, one would see where it all fits.
Gen 9:19 of Noah's sons was the whole earth overspread, but not by man's doing Gen 11:4
Gen 10-11 with understanding.
---micha9344 on 12/7/11


micha 9344 & Warwick: By the use of the word "race", I do not mean different creation of humans-beings. I am referring to people from the same source who later develop different physical features based on different location, climate, herb & food intakes. Pardon me if the word stirs controversy, it can be replaced with ethnic group divisions or nationalities.

Adetungi, I somewhat believe what you said. Whether anyone wants to call them races or not the fact still remains that people became different in their skin. Which we now call a different race, because they came from a different brother. After what we call Dispersion, three lines of people came, the Hamitics, Semitics and the Japhetics. Africans and Arabians come from Hamitic, Ethiopians are descendants of Cush son of Ham. Persians, Assyrians, Chaldeans, Armenians and Syrians or descendants of Semitic, descendant of Shem. and Gauls, Britons, Germans, Russians, Medes, Iberians, Greeks, Romans, and Thracians are from Jahetic descendant of Japheth.
The Hebrew race came from Jacob descendant of Semitic

Warwick -
Jas 1:5 If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not, and it shall be given him.
---lee1538 on 12/7/11


You might remind some Lee that the wisest men of Christ day and from the Genesis to Rev.....couldn't see.

Romans 1:22
Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,

1 Corinthians 3:19
For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness.

Some put their faith in men, name dropping. Some in their relationship with the "only" Teacher.
---Trav on 12/7/11


Warwick - the FACT is easily seen that the Genesis record does NOT specify the duration of the first 3 periods of Creation.

Our main difference lies in the obvious fact that I believe everthing in the Word of God while you do not. What you believe is merely an opinion. I pointed out to you previously that a fool (Proverbs 18:2)only has opinions, but I would really like to think better of you.

You really need to think about these things maybe even ask the Lord for wisdom.

Jas 1:5 If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not, and it shall be given him.

Lee, rather than posing more of your evasive, sanctimonious waffle, let us descend to the particular.

Let us look at Exodus 20:11 "For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested on the seventh day. Therefore the LORD blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy."

If you have an answer from Scripture or the rules of Grammar please let us hear from you. If you have no good answer just swallow your burgeoning pride and admit it!
---Warwick on 12/7/11


Adetunji, I cannot see that it is appropriate or correct to use the word 'race' to refer to the offspring of 3 brothers. This is an artificial division, and only plays into the hands of the racists. As we believe the Bible to be true all humans on the earth are descended from those who came off the ark. That we can all breed (not interbreed) shows that we are the one kind, and the one species. Scripture never refers to races only languages, tribes and nations of men.
---Warwick on 12/6/11


Where do you interpret the races coming from Noah, Adetunji?

Barb, as you have not answered my question let me explain your belief as I see it.

Your view comes from the misunderstanding of the word 'replenish.' In the 1600's when the KJV was first produced 'replenish' simply meant 'fill," not refill. Since then 'replenish' has come to mean 'refill.' This archaeic language in the old KJV has lead people to believe there was an earlier population on earth which was destroyed and the earth therefore needed refilling. Not so.

BTW the KJV 2000 has 'fill' not 'replenish.' Replenish is used in the Bible 7 times and always means fill.
---Warwick on 12/6/11


Warwick //Lee, you are quick to call others 'fool." Remember when you point a finger at another 3 of your fingers are pointing back at you.

When your opinion is based upon what you want to believe instead of what is found in the Bible, then Proverbs 18:2 has to be applicable to you.

The main difference between you, Jerry & Francis is that we believe what the Bible states not what it does not say.

In that we can believe that the various races & nationalities got their beginning at the Tower of Babel as clearly the different nationalities and races speak different languages.
---lee1538 on 12/6/11


The Bible stated the divisions in race arising from the 3 Sons of Noah. I believe the species(not only human) started from the same source but develop special attributes & differences based on different climate & food intake.

"And God created man after his shape, after the shape of God created he him: male and female created he them.

Thank you for responding, but I don't quite follow your logic. When considering history, have you considered the hundreds of thousands of white, Christian men who gave their lives to end slavery in America?
---jerry6593 on 12/5/11


Barb, you wrote "replenish the earth" what do you think this means, especially the word 'replenish'?
---Warwick on 12/4/11


Warwick, I got this idea from reading Gen. 1 & 2 very slowly and carefully.

Do you think that God looked among the animals to find Adam a wife? I think He looked among the nations of the people he first created but found no woman suitable.

Read Gen. 1 & 2 and you will find that the rivers are already named. Who named them? Why did God set Adam and Eve into the Garden? If the people in Gen 1 are the same people as in Gen 2 then why did God tell them to replenish the earth and have dominion over it and then tell Adam to dress and keep the Garden? How could one man subdue the earth?
---barb on 12/4/11


Jerry,

Bitter is not something that describes my nature. In stating a fact I would encourage you to go back and read about the Historical Christian representation in slavery and understand it was the Quakers who first protested that the injustice against people of colour was not represented in the very bible that many of these so called pioneers for Christianity first believed and that to take someone by force and do what they did to our people was not listed in the bible to do so.

Carla I am sorry you feel as you do. The history of our world is one of continual violence and not all about white people oppressing black people, in fact far from it.

If we look at Africe it wasn't long ago that black Rwandans from 2 different tribes slaughtered c500,000 people, all of them black.

Over much of Africa we see black upon black violence, in Nigeria for one example.

IN WW2 we saw the Japanese slaughtering large numbers of other Asians.

We also need to remember it was mostly African Arabs who supplied the black Africans for shipment to the USA.

As Christians we surely must believe that all humans are descended from Adam and Eve, created in God's image, therefore equal.
---Warwick on 12/4/11


Carla: You seem bitter. Have you personally suffered slavery, imprisonment or attempted genocide in your lifetime? Did you know that it was Africans who captured and sold their fellows into slavery, and even ate each other? Did you know that some still do? Did you know that it was the racist theories of Charles Darwin that led to the genocides of which you spoke as well as those of Hitler and Stalin? It was not the religion of Christ which did these atrocities, but rather His enemy, Satan.

Gen. 1 - God creates them male and female and tells them to go out and replenish the earth.

Gen. 2 - Probably several thousands of years later God creates Adam and Eve and places them into the Garden. He is setting them apart so that He can teach them and send them out into the world with a message. Adam and Eve disobey God. God turns to Israel and they also disobey. God sends His Son who accomplishes His mission and is triumphant. See Matt 21:23-40.

However, one on this forum did raise the question whether or not God created other human beings resulting in the different races.
---lee1538 on 12/1/11


It is no assumption that Adam and Eve were the ancestors of all mankind. That is what Scripture says.

In reality there are no different races (that is an artificial construct, we are all of the one race. There are visual differences but the genetic differences are tiny.

God's word never mentions 'race,' only "tribe, language, people and nation" Revelation 5:9, also vs 19, 13:7.

As there are no races people do not intermarry but marry. Scientifically speaking humans are one kind, and one species as we can all marry and produce fertile offspring. God is colour blind, and so should Christians be.

God's people were never told not to marry people from different countries, only to never marry non-believers.

Lee, I like your answer very much. All we can do is go by what we are told in Scripture. There is no mention of anyone before Adam. Anything anyone comes out with is only conjecture. Many here have many opinions when they run into a problem or when they have questions on topics that are not fully explained. But we believe the Bible by faith, because we believe in God by faith. Anything else comes from the minds of man, not God. If He wanted us to know there was people before Adam, He would have told us. He didn't, He wanted to start with Adam, so He did.

The start of the races can be found in Genesis 11. Everyone spoke the same language, but because of the incidents that happened in this chapter, God mixed up all the languages. People who spoke this language went off and started their own community, and people who spoke another all banded together and went off and started another one someplace else. Now as to the different colours etc, I don't think there is anything in scriptures stating how that came about.

I'm sure that God had provided all the right genes for all the different races when He created the first couple. We have no idea what they looked like but their offspring became many different colors and types of people. As they were all genetic offspring of the first couple they had their genes from Adam and Eve. Once dispersed after their language was confused dark skinned people would have survived in different climates from the areas of light skinned people etc. We are still all one race though.

Touche' Moderator on both statements. Maybe the "initial overspreading" of the people on earth was larger geographically than most of us believed "before" earth was divided [Acts 17:22-26].

You've now no doubt openned a lot of eyes & curious questions for further [hopefully] positive dialogue by some. Good Job!

I was under the impression that different skin pigmentation's did not become common 'til mankind was spread over the earth after continents were formed.

Then again it could have begun after "the fall" when the windows of heaven were openned, destroying the universal ice(?) canopy used as a world wide "climate control" & sun shield.

Moderator - Both events you mentioned would have happened after the flood.

Moderator, where does it say in the bible that Noah's three sons were black, white and asian? Even if they were, these characteristics must have been inherited from Adam and Eve who would have carried the total gene pool known to man. We don't know how many children they had in total but there's a possibility that they would all have been quite different from each other, skin colour, eye shape, height, hair type etc.

Moderator - Yes, the gene pool would go back to Adam and Eve. Noah's three sons went to three different parts of the world which formed the three races mentioned after the fall of the Tower of Babel. Nimrod was black a desendent of Ham and his wife was white according to Babylonian statues found of her.

"And has made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation. But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the children of God, even to them that believe on his name: which were born , not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God." Acts 17:26; John 1:12,13.

I do not know how races came about. However we do know that like begans like, and since we started from two people the difference races did not start in the garden of Eden.---mima 11/8/2005

DeJa Vue: "Races" were created in the Garden In Eden, through Adam & Eve, separated at the tower of Babel after their language was confused, the earth was then separated into continents. "Cultural" classifications was through Noah & his three sons [not tv's "my three sons"]! Only one scriptural answer & it's not race, enough bigotry already on earth involving mankind, without creating a "race issues" for our "dress rehearsal" here! Gen. chapters 10 & 11!
