I will admit that it was lazily done, but prooftext fail? That is a little strong. But since you made the accusation. I will expand. This is what happens when people do not see Genesis as truth. The term “word” signifies “divine reason” “mind” “wisdom” God’s word brought the world into being (Genesis 1:3)
"And God said, “Let there be light…”
God’s word is a self-expression in creation, wisdom, revelation, salvation in the person of Jesus Christ.
