o

Strictly literal reading of the text
B. Evidence of revelation for fiat creation
o
We are limited to the Bible for our revelation of fiat creation
o
The story of creation is presented as historical fact, not as a true “myth” 
At least 75 passages--- OT and NT—referencing creation- alwaysmentioned as historical fact

The NT evidence for the creation of all things out of nothing

1. The Gap View or the Reconstitution Theory
a. Exponents
By Pember
Delitzch—Hengstenberg
Scofield-
Scofield Reference Bible-
1909- first referencebible
b. Explanation
Gen. 1:1 is a topic sentence—an initial, perfect creation
Between verses 1 and 2 is a period of time, a gap, whichmay be a few thousand to millions of years
During this gap of time, the fall of Satan and the angelsoccurred
After a length of time, God began to reform the earth tomake it inhabitable for mankind

Order
Genesis 1
V. 1-topic sentence
GAP
Fall
V. 2 creation of man
c. Defense
this explanation fits with the interpretation of Isa. 45:18and Jer. 4:23-26
this view accounts for the fall of Satan and the angels
this view accounts for the geological ages
this view accounts for the fossils
d. Objections
this view must posit a pre-Adamic creation which is nottaught elsewhere in the Scripture
The Hebrew of Gen. 1:2 should not be translated as “became,” it simply means it “was” like that
The words “formless” (waste) and “void” do not necessarilyimply a state resulting from a judgment of a destruction
Simply means- not in final form, and no one is livingthere.
Gen. 1:31 does not allow for anything evil in the creation of the earth to that point.- “VERY GOOD” 
However, God said “his creation” was very good- notevil, he did not create evil
Hebrew Grammar does not support a gap between Gen 1:1and 1:2
o
2. The Re-creation Theory
a. Exponents
