Q: Do six ordinary days limit God?
A. Since God is omnipotent, He could have created everything in six seconds, six minutes, six days, or any time period He chose. But the point is that it’s not what God could have done, it’s what He said He did.
There are many, even in the church, who justify their acceptance of evolutionary time periods by saying, “You literal six-day creationists are limiting God! I allow God billions of years to create—I don’t limit Him to six days!”
However, believing that God created everything in six literal days is not limiting Him. Rather, we are limiting ourselves by letting God tell us what He did. We don’t tell God what He did. After all, only He was there.
Many Christians don’t seem to understand that the reason we believe God created in six days is because we are letting God speak to us through the language of the Bible. We can’t impose our ideas on God’s Word—we must let God’s Word speak to us.
When we take this approach, it’s obvious from the language of Genesis that God created in six literal days. Relying on the Bible alone, there’s really no debate.
If you instruct the brethren in these things, you will be a good minister of Jesus Christ, nourished in the words of faith and of the good doctrine which you have carefully followed. (1 Timothy 4:6)
