The Church of England has not taken a stand on the simplified 'creation versus evolution' debate. Many people investigating this have reported being unable to find a clear positional statement from the CofE, and there are quotes from church leaders stating that they believe there is no official position. This is an example. The church has made pronouncements ...

The Biblical basis for claiming that Eve was created after the sixth day is one from inference instead of literalism. The account in Genesis 1 starts with all the creatures first, then man on the sixth day. Chapter two continues on describing a different time of creation, or a smaller, second creation, if you will. The story in Genesis two has Adam created ...

The answer to this question is similar to the answer I gave for your other question. We read in Genesis 1:27-31 that God created man (as a race) and created both male and female. Jump ahead to Genesis 2:18-25 we see the detailed creation of Eve (and prior to that, Adam). These events both take place on the same day, the sixth, which is supported by ...

The basis for the belief that Eve was created on the 6th day is a literal interpretation of Genesis 1. Genesis 1:26-28 ESV Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness. And let them have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over the livestock and over all the earth and over every creeping thing ...

My answer here is an adaptation of part of my answer to a related question on Hermeneutics.SE: The purpose of 'rest' In two of his books (listed below), John H. Walton examines Genesis 1.1-2.3 according to its similarities to other 'creation myths' in the ancient near east (ANE from here onward), verbal cues with contemporary or related Hebrew ...

There is a definite difference between trying to foretell an unknown future and seeing things unfold and knowing what's going on. I don't have to be a meteorologist to know that when dark clouds start gathering overhead there's a chance it might rain. A good representation of this is in Revelation: "I watched as he opened the sixth seal. There was a great ...

There are two separate accounts of creation in the book of Genesis. The first, which occupies the first chapter, describes the creation of the world, life, and humanity in the "7 Day" format. On the 6th day, God creates mankind, both male and female. In the second creation story which starts at Genesis 2:2 recounts the familiar story of Adam (a name which ...

I think it is clear enough from the text in Genesis 1 that Adam and Eve were created on the sixth day. On the fifth day God created the fishes and birds, and On the sixth day God created wild animals and Adam and Eve. Let me post the whole passage for clarification with my own emphasis. Notice that between the "fifth day" and the "sixth day", there is the ...

From what you've quoted above, it seems that they believe in progressive creationism which is the believe that all things were created over a long period of time, however not through evolution. Theistic evolution is more along the lines of what you're saying, which is basically that God guided the evolution process. Jehovah's Witness believe that God formed ...

Probably the most well known light sign in the sky was the announcement of the birth of Jesus: All Scripture is quoted from the King James version unless otherwise stated. Matthew 2:1 and 2 Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem, Saying, Where is he that is ...

I would only speculate from sctipture a few simple answers. It is apparent that in Christianity it is important that we identify God as our "Father" through Christ, in fact it is God's will that we know him as our Father through Christ so it is apparent that God wanted children. God is love and he loves his servants the angels but what greater vessel for him ...
