Like when you interpret something literally. Like Psalm 91:4 says God has feathers or Psalms 18:2 says, Jesus is my rock.
Or all things are meant to be read literal. Or Zech 1:2-3. Everything from the face of the Earth…then later the Israelites go into exile.
Genesis isn’t a material account. Great video below from Dr. Walton.
Gen 1:16. 2 lights? The moon is a light? We know it is a reflection of light. We also know the sun is a big ball of gas…They didn’t know that back then, the sun was just a miraculous source of light, so was the moon.
Genesis is about the inauguration of the temple (earth), being told of its function , being filled with ‘guests’ and God ruling over it all.
To expand on that. The earth was just a house on day 6, it wasn’t a home till God dwelled and ruled it on day 7.
The Bible is the unquestionable standard with regards to important things. Who created us, why, how we messed up, how God reconciled us, how/whywe should live for Him.
But how science works, was it a material creation, was the flood literally global was it 40 thousand men in battle it 10 thousand etc. not important.
2 Tim 16-17 “All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, 17 so that the servant of God[a] may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.”
Can you do a good work knowing(assuming) the world is 4000 years old? Does it do the kingdom of God or bring God any glory if the flood was global or local? Scripture is for teaching life/purpose/function, not science. It doesn’t say “useful for proving theories, cosmological geology/history, chemistry, anatomy”.
The Bible also says God makes it rain and that is what they believed back then, just like the sun was a light. Just because we know have the knowledge to understand the natural process of what the sun is or how it rains, it doesn’t take God out of the picture.
God makes it rain, God created humans. The water heats up, evaporates, condenses, and gravity causes it to fall. Our genetics have small changes in concert with other factors that causes a change, and multiple changes over a long period of time could have been were humans developed from (ie. evolution).
They are both rain and evolution are congruent with the scriptures. God makes both happen.
I am not saying evolution is proven or a fact. But it is a theory with great logic behind it, and scripture doesn’t refute it, so why not accept it?
