When it comes to the title of our blog, ‘6days/66 books/6000 years’ it does seem a bit strange and long winded. Why did we choose it? In November 2006 we started with a webpage called ‘TheBook.’ The title suited us, because we wrote about the Bible, the most precious and wonderful Book of all times.
For this blog, which we began in January 2014, we chose this title because it describes the controversy around the Bible:
# 1. 6 days: There are many believers in Christ who claim that God’s plan for man in the Bible is the inerrant message from God. Yet they find it inconceivable that a six days creation was possible. They firmly believe evolution is true, and that nullifies the 6 days creation. If the Bible is wrong about the 6 days creation, why is it right about the virgin birth and the resurrection of Jesus, the Son of God? Who says He really is the Son of God? Six day creation is the foundation of the Bible.
#2. 66 books: God’s revelation is contained in the 66 books of the Bible. Together they form one functional whole. When any of the original manuscripts are taken away, or others are added, it leads to a skewed understanding of what God wants us to know.
#3. 6000 years: Many Christians accept that the universe and the earth is billions of years old as commonly taught through evolution. Biblical genealogies and history show that the present heavens and the earth is about 6000 years old (not more than 10,000 years). So God and evolution are irreconcilable. They don’t mix and cannot mix. Chance natural happenings are very different from precise Divine planning and execution as the Bible explains. God began the ‘project’ of His Kingdom of peace and happiness with the creation of the present heavens and earth. He will conclude His plan when He creates the new heavens and a new earth. Why would He waste billions of years of time through evolution which does not allow for the omnipotent Creator God?
The current title sums up what we firmly believe is essential for a Bible believer.
