Between Justice & Mercy.
Several times over the years I’ve had this discussion with my daughter Andrea about what the word “day” meant in Genesis chapter one. She feels adamant this refers to the same twenty-four hour period as we experience it today. Indeed, many Christians hold to the same view, and there is nothing wrong with this.
Einstein’s Theory of Relativity gave us that one simple equation that not only explains how creation begins, but how motion relates to timelessness and to the beginning of the universe.
Each of us has a view of the world through the lens of our own personal bias. Scientists are perhaps more predisposed because they inherently focus on what they see in the material world as they study it, and they get separated into those that believe in a creator God and those that do not.
Eternity is based in time. While it has no end, it most certainly had a beginning. Our Father is timeless which is why he says his name is I AM. The difference between eternity and timelessness is not merely a semantical slight of tongue.
