Biblical Freedom from Traditional Creationism -
How a Literal Interpretation of the Bible Refutes Young-Earth Theology (an Every-Verse Method study)
Why dedicate an entire page to a single study?
It’s not because this study is more important than others on this site. In fact, it’s less important than most. Our beliefs on the age of the universe should have little effect on how we love God and others. I’ve known great Christians from both the young universe and old universe camps.
However, this study is special because it’s the most ground-breaking study on the Biblical Freedom web site. According to www.christianwalktoday.com, this creationism study “offers a perspective about the origin of the earth that is sure to shake the most theologically literate of Christians.”
As you can tell from the title and sub-title, this study examines every creationism passage in the Bible and reveals how a literal interpretation of these verses contradicts many long-held beliefs of young-earth creationists. In fact, this study shows how the Bible better supports an old universe than it does a young one.
Chances are that this study doesn’t have it all figured out when it comes to how God created the universe, but it does prove to be every bit as legitimate as (or even more legitimate than) the traditional interpretation of the creation account. Therefore, those who treat old-earth creationist Christians like the spawn of Satan will have no choice but to lighten up if they open-mindedly read this study.
This study is over 18,000 words in length and takes about 3 hours to read. To read or download the entire study, please click on the following link:
