ASK THE MUTTERERS

Did God really Create the World in less than 7 days?

I have been wondering how possible it was for God to have created the whole universe in less than seven days. Sounds so impossible right? Because up till now, scientists are still uncovering the numerous wonders embedded in nature and they haven’t even scratched the nut yet. 

Also, due to the complexity of the human system, medical doctors get so many new discoveries annually. Just a pinch of sand contains thousands of species of bacteria not to talk of other microorganisms. The air we breath also contains numerous organisms, including the ones we can see and cannot.

Take a look at the sky at night, you would see billions of shining stars, each of those stars burn gases like the sun which has planets revolving around it. Because they are far away, we can only see them as little twinkling diamonds in the sky.

Should we believe that all these were created in six days; each bearing 24hours? Well, I disagree.

2 Peter 3:8 says; “But do not forget this one thing, dear friends, with the Lord, a day is like a thousand years and a thousand years is like a day”.

If this is the case, it is logical to say that God created the world in 6000 earth years and rested for a thousand earth years making it a total of 7000 years. 

The book of Genesis was written by Moses, a man who wasn’t present during the time of creation. Safe to say that he wrote it under the divine inspiration of God.

Are you aware of ‘The Beginning’?

In 2 Timothy 3:16, we read that “All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness”...(God’s instruction to Moses inclusive). It could mean that God told Moses the number of days he created the world in the way He (God) sees it and not in the way man sees it.

God
How often do you read your bible?

 Furthermore, it is believed that Jesus died and resurrected about 2000yrs ago which means that in the eyes of God, it’s only been two days ago his son died for the world.

Don’t you think it would be too early for God to send his son to the world again to take the righteous ones? 

The pain, sorrow and trauma of his son suffering and finally dying is still a fresh wound. If you were God would you allow your son to come back too soon? Perhaps God is waiting for the week to be over so that rapture can take place. 

From my ratiocination, we may have about 5000 more years to go before he sends his son to us again.

That logic makes sense but also, it could be that he did 1000 years worth of work in day and that means 7 days was actually used. Remember he lives outside of our human time.

Hmmmm. Another point here. I would have asked how possible it is but then again I remembered he is the Alpha. Thank you and welcome on board😁👏👏

How old did Adam live before he died? 930years. How old is the world’s oldest person today? 116years. A lot has changed since creation. I was definitely not there, I believe wholeheartedly what the scripture tells me. 1. NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE WITH GOD Luke 1:37 2. Then God said, “Let there be lights in the firmament of the heavens to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs and seasons, and for DAYS and YEARS;..” ..look at the last word there YEARS. And this is GENESIS 1:14, in the middle of the creation story, the word… Read more »

He is God! Do you really think he functions in the times and seasons of man?

@Eze Ugo 1. I don’t think so, in fact He said he doesn’t. But then again, what do I know about these things?

I loved the way you used bibilical refrence to back up your points😁😁. It was interesting to follow👏👏. But since you made it clear that you believe what the scripture says, why is it so hard to believe the writer’s refrence to 2 Peter 3:8?

Some friends and I were in an engaging debate back in university, about science and religion/miracles. The argument was science follow rules clear to us that if we follow each step can get thesame results. After a long argument, we entered the creation story and evolution. Keep in mind the bible, a book written years ago, is being validated by new scientific discoveries. Example; The great flood is actually a historic event. The evolution theory, though they may differ, actually goes in line with creation story. They say life began with the Big bang. The bible says let there be… Read more »

I love this. If that’s the case, we can actually agree that evolution might have taken place within the thousands of years

Really…who knows these things? 🙌🙌🙌

Wow! So many insight in one comment. I enjoyed reading this👏👏👏. Just like when some cultural practices provoke me, I often ask ‘who made these rules that attack our individuality?’…were the first men truly in their right state of mind? If we claim we are more advanced, why do we still hold on to their rules and beliefs?

I also agree with you on the connection part, there is definitely a connection some where. Thank you 💥💥

This is really a critical write-up and I love the scientific correlation.. More of this will help narrow some mysteries.. But know that nothing is impossible In the hands of our maker.. He made a statement at one point and people at the other point saw the manifestation.. Hence there is nothing he can’t do.. So 7 days account of creation is visible but am not disputing this proposal.. Ride on

Sometimes I do wonder how God would let his people suffer for a whole 400years. It could be that the 400yrs might just be 4hours in God’s eye.

Creating the world wasn’t as labour-intensive and laborious for God as you think. When God wants things done, HE doesn’t draw up a plan, do a feasibility study and contract workers. He doesn’t do any of these; HE gives a command and everything takes shape. When HE created the world, HE didn’t need angels to execute his plans and bring them to fruition. 2 Peter 3:8-9 where Apostle Peter talks about a day being like a thousand years to God, had nothing to do with the days of creation. Peter tries to explain why it takes God time to fulfill… Read more »

You didn’t get the logic. What this write up is trying to say is that “a thousand years which we think is so long could just be like a day in the eyes of God” besides there is no special case for when we believe the New Testament or Old Testament is still part of the Bible which we all believe. God’s word doesn’t change Wether old or New Testament…

I honestly don’t know how to respond to this. I made my point though.
