The Creation Story Pt. 1: How Old Is The Earth?

We all know Genesis 1:1, “In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.” But do we all know what that means? Do we understand what Moses meant when he said, And God said, ‘Let there be light,’ and there was light.” (Genesis 1:3). Or maybe when he said, And God said, ‘Let there be an expanse in the midst of the waters, and let it separate the waters from the waters.’ And God made the expanse and separated the waters that were under the expanse from the waters that were above the expanse. And it was so. And God called the expanse Heaven. And there was evening and there was morning, the second day.” How about evolution, is it fact or fiction? How old is the Earth? Does the Bible even say how old the earth is? Why did Moses say ‘evening then morning,’ if there was no sun? So, join Rev. Kenny Yates as he uncovers the truth behind the Creation Story in part one, How Old Is The Earth, of his four-part series, The Creation Story.

How Old is the Earth?

Does the Bible really say how old the earth is? The Bible starts with the words in the beginning.

1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

Genesis 1:1

If the Bible starts with, in the beginning, then wouldn’t it make sense that the Bible gives us the age of the earth?

But by the same word the heavens and earth that now exist are stored up for fire, being kept until the day of judgment and destruction of the ungodly. But do not overlook this one fact, beloved, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. The Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance.

2 Peter 3:7-9
