I’m not trying to pin God down. I’m simply stating if that account was literal ( that would be Him pinning it down, not me), it could make logic sense according to our laws and constants that both time beliefs are correct.
There is no need to make 7 days, but there are parallels that can be used if it was a literal 7 days. If it turns out it wasn’t a literal 7 days, it doesn’t invalidate the sabbath, but can be used as a parallel, if it did occur that way.
The same way you can be 3 separate beings and be the same one being at the same time. It’s something that we can’t comprehend, but it is true.
I never really thought about that before though, that God can’t move, as He has no need to move as He is omnipresent. Although it speaks of Him sitting on a throne, which is a location and a metaphor for in charge. Again, omnipresence is something we just can’t fathom.
But again like the pillars of fire or Jesus, physical representations of Himself can and were physical moved and if of those physical representations could have witnessed the creation in 6 days.
Since God is outside of time, there is no amount of time for Him to create everything. But for us created in time in our universe, it took 13.7 billion years. But if He wanted it to also have been created in 7 literal days (to later parallel that with working 6 days and resting the 7th), it could be assigned and witnessed by a physical representation of God to have taken 7 days.
I can’t speak for everyone, but to me outside of time doesn’t literally mean outside of it and not with us in it, rather it means not confined by it.
I agree. I think He does live with us in the time we live, but I believe He is not confined by only the time I live in. He died for me 2000 years ago and that atonement transcends time and applies to me still today if I accept it. That is what I mean by outside of time.
