I have been noting the give and take, the too ing and fro ing , over this calandar business as it relates to scripture, and indeed as Neville said also thus relates to geocentrism, though I do not quite see how. What seems to come out of all this discussion , and I include all of our debates here, is that none can be absolutely sure of any scientific accuracy from scripture, which does not open up even more confusion. eg 72 hours or not 72 hours. We seem to be confirming that Scripture alone, is insufficient to convey the will of God, but that we need someone with Divine Authority to explain it to us. As it appears so far here, we are very much like the blind leading the blind. Mat 15-14. We seek our authority from the skills of men. I am referring to language and scientific interpretive and knowledge skills. Yet does not scripture itself tell us just how dangerous such are. 25 For the foolishness of God is wiser than men: and the weakness of God is stronger than men. 26 For see your vocation, brethren, that there are not many wise according to the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble. 27 But the foolish things of the world hath God chosen, that he may confound the wise: and the weak things of the world hath God chosen, that he may confound the strong. 28 And the base things of the world and the things that are contemptible, hath God chosen: and things that are not, that he might bring to nought things that are: Then we have also 2Peter 3- 15 And account the longsuffering of our Lord, salvation: as also our most dear brother Paul, according to the wisdom given him, hath written to you: 16 As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are certain things hard to be understood, which the unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, to their own destruction. 17 You therefore, brethren, knowing these things before, take heed, lest being led aside by the error of the unwise, you fall from your own steadfastness. 18 But grow in grace and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and unto the day of eternity, Amen. I guess that last verse 18 puts the really important perspective on our subject, and its relative import.

What Scriptural justification is there for this being two days? Neville. --------------------------------- Yahoo! Messenger - want a free & easy way to contact your friends online?
