Bible Study Leader Telling Stories

Bible study leader gets off the subject, telling his own stories. Got way off and was talking about science and the Bible. Said that the seven-day creation was not really 24-hour days. Saying that Bible and evolution can line up and KJV is not inspired. What do you say?

Sounds like you are certainly not satisfied with this Bible Study and are frustrated and waisting your time. The teacher seems to be a very opionated individual who is not able to stick to the subject or facts. He does not sound like a teacher I would chose. If he is boring or incorrect, find a better Bible Study. There are better ones out there. We have so many choices these days.

AlanUK trawls this site endeavouring to spread confusion.

Genesis defines creation days as being about 24 hours. 'Day' has three meanings 1)Unbounded period of time-i.e.'my fathers day.'2)Daylight-daytime & 3)24 hrs- how do we know when it's 24hrs? Genesis Ch.1 defines this where God writes 1st day, 2nd day etc. Whenever 'day' occurs described this way it's a normal earth rotation day.

If I said on the first & second days of my holiday I went swimming is anyone confused as to my meaning?

Days continued-just in case we didn't get the point God also describes day as 'The evening & the morning were the first day.'

Further he uses the creation 7-day week as the patten for our week- Exodus 20:8-10.

To work on the 7th day was punishable by death. If the days aren't ordinary days how could anyone avoid being punished?

The length of creation days are obviously days except to those who prefer the opinions of men to the Truth of God

mark...The Bible Study was supposed to be on I Corinthians, Chapter 15. That's part of the problem. He continually gets way off base, usually telling of his own exploits and life experiences.

The Genesis account does not claim that they were days as we now know them.
Read the translators introduction to the Authorised Version (wrongly described as the KJV) and you will see they did not claim it was an inspired translation, and acknowledged the possibility that improvements could be made in the future

I was just reading in my Bible how the earth was created in literal 24 hours, each day.**

Since the Sun was not created until the FOURTH day, and we tell days from nights by the rotation of the earth and which side faces the sun, why do you think these are 24 hour days.

Furthermore, both Psalm 90 and 2 Peter 3:8 both say that God doesn't measure time the way we do, that's 2 more warnings.

#1 The concept of time is interesting when viewed from the perspective of an infinite God, something we will never understand. Humans view time from sun up to sun down, time to humanity is completely relative to the rotation of the earth on its axis and abround the sun, hurling through a universe inside of the Milky Way.

#2 That, is obviously not how GOd sees time. When God spoke of, "There was morning, there was evening." Is it literal or metaphoric. And that is one of the funnest things about God, you must discern HIs word through HIs author, The Holy Spirit. I still beleieve it is unwise to put time constraints on God.

I was just reading in my Bible how the earth was created in literal 24 hours, each day. He is a false teacher, and has got seducing spirits paving his path, leave as quickly as possible.
