Can we really fit millions or billions of years into the bible.
Even if we could interpret the word day as a thousand years in Genesis chapter one we would still have a problems syncing it with man’s origins as the order of creation is completely different.
The big bang theory says the world began with the stars but the creation account says these didn’t come till day four. There is no one point in the creation ordered that matches big bang model.
The big bang theory isn’t just a theory about the past but also of the future. According to the theory the universe will continue to expand and as a result the universe will end up in a state called heat death. This happens as a result of all usable energy has been used up.
However the bible offers hope and promises that God will bring judgement and that he will create a new heaven and a new earth.
Revelations 21:1 “now i saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away. Also there was no more sea” (NKJV).
