Psalm 14825

2 Praise Him, all His angels; Praise Him, all His hosts! 3 Praise Him, sun and moon; Praise Him, all you stars of light! 4 Praise Him, you heavens of heavens, And you waters above the heavens! 5 Let them praise the name of the LORD, for He commanded and they were created.

The creation of the universe must be understood as an instantaneous creation at the command of God, in the beginning. When God created the universe in the beginning, He also designed and created the Law of Gravity. God introduced the Law of Gravity for the stability, and for the very existence, of the universe. All bodies in the universe are held together and maintain their orbits because of gravitation. Smaller bodies are held in their orbits by bigger bodies. Moons orbit planets, planets orbit stars, stars orbit galactic centres, and galaxies orbit other galaxies in clusters.

The important point to understand is that it is impossible for the moon to exist without the earth, and it is impossible for the earth to exist without the sun, and for the sun to exist without our galaxy, the Milky Way, and for the Milky Way to exist without other galaxies. So the whole universe must have been created instantaneously for it to exist, and this is exactly what God did in the beginning. He commanded and they were created instantaneously.

Time began when God created the sun, the earth and the moon with the rest of the universe in the beginning. This is when God's Plan of the Ages began.

It is amazing that many Christians who hold to Young Earth Creationism do not believe the very first verse of the Bible. Young Earth Creationism clearly misinterprets the Genesis account of God's creation. It teaches that God created the earth on the first day without the sun, and that it wasn't until the fourth day that God created the sun, the moon and the stars. This is not only biblically untrue but also scientifically nonsensical. It is impossible for even the very first instant of the first day with its 24-hour day and night to occur, without both the earth and the sun existing together. This is elementary physics and common sense.

The Bible is extremely logical and it does not contradict true science, after all God Himself is the greatest scientist. God does not want us to believe in something which is illogical and scientifically stupid. Young Earth Creationism greatly undermines the credibility of the Bible by insisting on teaching something which is scientifically impossible, and which the Bible does not teach. If the first few verses of the Bible cannot be logically accepted, then is it any wonder that evolutionists and atheists have field days attacking the Bible as illogical and full of contradictions?

How long ago was the beginning when God commanded and instantaneously created the universe with the earth? The Bible does not say, but it cannot be six thousand years ago as believed by Young Earth Creationists. Star distances confirm that the beginning was many millions of years ago. Even a leading Young Earth Creationist site, '', admits that star distances have long been a problem when defending their belief in a young earth. Most probably, scientists have overestimated the age of our earth as being about 4.5 billion years old, but we can be absolutely sure that the earth is much older than six thousand years.

Young Earth Creationists claim to interpret the Genesis account of creation literally to justify their belief in a young earth of about six thousand years. They say that anything other than about six thousand years is playing around with the literal translation of the creation account. This is a clear case of 'the pot calling the kettle black' as quite the opposite is true. It is the Young Earth Creationists themselves who flirt with the literal meaning of the Genesis account of creation. They are unable to accept the literal meaning of even the very first verse of the Bible. Let us be very clear about what the Bible says, and what Young Earth Creationism (YEC) says.

The Bible says that God created the earth in the beginning; YEC says that God created the earth in the first day. The Bible says that God created the sun and the moon in the beginning; YEC says that God created them in the fourth day. The Bible says that God created the heavens and the earth in the beginning; YEC says that God created them in six days.

Can we see how Young Earth Creationism completely contradicts the very first verse of the Bible? We shall show you later in this chapter why Young Earth Creationism confuses the beginning of the heavens and the earth many millions of years ago with the beginning of the six day Genesis 'creation', approximately six thousand years ago.

Let us now go on to understand the literal interpretation of the creation account as the Bible actually teaches.

What was the state of the earth when God created it in the beginning? Let us see what the Bible says.
