    • Creation and an Old Earth - One Possibility
      Are you using the correct Hebrew translation (erets = land) Are you using the correct biblical definition of the word "erets"   (erets = land)   9 And God said, “Let the water under the sky be gathered to one place, and let dry ground appear.” And it was so. 10 God called the dry ground (ERETS)  “land,” Are you using he KJV definition of the word "erets"  (the word earth meant soil/land when the KJV was written) Are you using the INCORRECT modern translation (erets = PLANET EARTH)   If you were using the CORRECT meaning of the word erets as described in Genesis 1:9.... the word means land not planet earth: Exodus 20:11  For in six days the LORD made the sky and the land, the sea, and all that is in them, but he rested on the seventh day. Therefore the LORD blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy.   You see that?   Using the bible's own definition of the word erets, as described in Genesis 1:9, then God made dry ground.    We can have the same discussion about the word heavens, which Genesis 1 describes as the expanse between the ocean and the sky. ie NOT the universe, just our breathable , visible atmosphere.
    • Creation and an Old Earth - One Possibility
      Like I said, I'm a bible literalist.  I agree that there are 7 24 hour periods.  Understanding what the word "erets" actually means, and looking at what occurrred on day 3, I just don't see how the earth is created within the 7 days. The watery earth CLEARLY exists BEFORE the first day, and the claim that the planet earth was created on day 3 is contradicted by the biblical claim that the word "earth" (erets) means "dry land".  Dry land was created on day 3 NOT the earth.   And so a literal look at Genesis 1, understanding the word "erets" correctly, actually CONTRADICTS the planet created within the 7 literal days. The watery earth already existed before day 1, and THEN the dry land was created on day 3: 9 And God said, “Let the water under the sky be gathered to one place, and let dry ground appear.” And it was so. 10 God called the dry ground “land,” and the gathered waters he called “seas.”   1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2 Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters. 3 And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. 4 God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness. 5 God calledthe light “day,” and the darkness he called “night.” And there was evening, and there was morning—the first day.   Let's stick to the actual bible wording, and not some archaic young earth tradition.
    • My Wife
      Well they inspected the flat and weren't thrilled, apparently there's a smell but it was tidy and as clean as I could manage on my own. They say they want to inspect monthly from now on, which is their right as landlords. We can't get social housing unless the in-laws issue us a notice to quit and we almost certainly can't afford another private rent. Assuming, that is, we could find a place that accepted pets, most don't, a lot won't even accept children, and assuming we could get a landlord reference from the in-laws. They're not obliged to provide one. On the medical front, the wife is having further surgery today. She's in a lot of pain. She was hoping to get out maybe this week if the surgery goes well but she's had a lot of pain overnight, and metal in her bile drain so she's pretty worried. The doctor apparently thinks that's fine and she shouldn't worry. So still praying for her to be healed and the doctors and surgeons to have the guidance of God in their work, and also for our home situation when she gets back. I'm comforted by the Gospel of St. Matthew 6:25, but it's impossible not to worry about these things. Thank you all for your prayers so far.
