BIBLICAL CREATION TRUTH Posted : 19 Jan, 2016 05:13 AM
The Book relating to Biblical Creation Theology and titled “BIBLICAL CREATION TRUTH” by J. da. S. F. Martins, poses a very serious challenge to the traditional and modern six-day Young Earth creationists. According to the tenets of the traditional and recent Young Earth Creationism, Genesis 1:1 is supposedly inclusive of the work of the six days. However, God\'s six-day work actually begins from the first day as in Genesis 1:3-5 and not from Genesis 1:1-2 as is commonly believed. As such, according to the Author, the true Biblical Six Day-Creationism is as described in Genesis 1:3-31, and doesn\'t include Genesis 1:1-2. Accordingly, Genesis 1:1 is a distinct creation account in itself describing God\'s primeval perfect creation in the eternity past. This scriptural fact is corroborated by Proverbs 8:22-31 which if properly interpreted refer to pre-Adamic life on the primal earth of Genesis 1:1. Subsequently, Genesis 1:2 is not a work of direct creation as is assumed by the traditional six-day creationists. Instead, Genesis 1:2 describes chaotic conditions on earth which when objectively studied depict a judgmental outcome on earth as a result of Lucifer\'s rebellion as described in Isaiah 14 and Ezekiel 28. In view of this, the controversial Gap Theory is biblical and, therefore, acceptable. The Author, therefore, deals extensively on the subject of the so-called Gap Theory and proposes “Pre-Historical, Pre-Adamic Biblical Gap Theology\", which is prayerfully worth pondering. It is now left to serious Biblical Scholars and Theologians to disprove Author\'s interpretation of the creation accounts in Genesis 1 and elsewhere in the Bible, as relied upon by him; in particular, his interpretation of Proverbs 8:31 as referring to pre-historical life on earth including pre-Adamic \'sons of men\' then living on earth, very much prior to the creation of Adam and Eve some 6000 years back. The true Six-Day Biblical Creationism, according to the Author, is actually an account of re-creation of new life forms after their original kind, and only of Man after God’s Image and Likeness, as is briefly but comprehensively described in Genesis 1:3-31. In his Book, BIBLICAL CREATION TRUTH, The Author delves and describes in detail three phases or epochs of God\'s works of creation, after debunking the mythical theory of biological evolution of man. Finally, the Author gives a brief explanation of man\'s new spiritual creation in Christ thereby beautifully depicting the evangelical aspects of God\'s works of creation. The Book is certainly worth reading, more so, as a polemic in creation theology.
