people believe that God created a complete "first creation" in Genesis 1:1. This creation may have lasted many - even billions of years. Then during the fall of Satan the 1st creation was destroyed and the earth became without form and void
problems with the gap theory
1 Was, not became is the better translation based on Hebrew grammar.
2 It raises the question, why would God destroy a previous creation that was good?
3 Would the destruction of a previous creation include death? How could this be since death did not enter the world until Adam?
problems with the progressive creationism theory
1 As with the long day theory, it ignores a literal reading of Genesis 1.
2 It violates Romans 5:12, which states that death came as the result of Adam's sin. This theory suggests that millions of years of suffering and death occurred prior to the creation of Adam.
theistic evolution
claims to accept the accuracy of Scripture, it states that God used evolution as a method of creating the diversity of life seen today. It supports the long-day theory.
problems with theistic evolution theory
1 ignores a literal reading of Genesis 1
2 treats man as merely another product of biological evolution, not the result of a direct act of God (Gen 2:7)
3 violates Romans 5:12 which states that death came as the result of Adam's sin. This theory suggests that millions of years of suffering and death occurred prior to the creation of Adam.
