Introductory Statement We thank our God for the blessings of the last two years. We have found a profound unity among ourselves on the issues of vital importance to our Reformed testimony. We believe that the Scriptures, and hence Genesisare the inerrant word of God. We affirm that Genesis is a coherent account from the hand of Moses.
We believe that history, not myth, is the proper category for describing these chapters; and furthermore that their history is true. Because the Bible is the word of the Creator and Governor of all there is, it is right for us to find it speaking authoritatively to matters studied by historical and scientific research.
We also believe that acceptance of, say, non-geocentric astronomy is consistent with full submission to Biblical authority. We recognize that a naturalistic worldview and true Christian faith are impossible to reconcile, and gladly take our stand with Biblical supernaturalism.
The Committee has been unable to come to unanimity over the nature and duration of the creation days. Nevertheless, our goal has been to enhance the unity, integrity, faithfulness and proclamation of the Church.
Therefore we are presenting a unanimous report with the understanding that the members hold to different exegetical viewpoints. As to the rest we are at one. It is our hope and prayer that the Church at large can join us in a principled, Biblical recognition of both the unity and diversity we have regarding this doctrine, and that all are seeking properly to understand biblical revelation.
It is our earnest desire not to see our beloved church divide over this issue. Background to the Current Discussion of the Creation Days The debate over the nature of the creation days is, theologically speaking, a humble one.
Nevertheless, behind this matter of the Genesis days, and connected with it, are issues of some significance to the Bible-believing Christian community. Most obviously, the discussion of the nature of the creation days is a part of what has been one of the most important sustained theological issues in the Western world over the last century or so: The doctrine of creation undergirds all truth.
Creation and providence are a constant revelation of God, rendering all men inexcusable before him. The issues among us are more specific than the doctrine of creation as such. Among the vast number of biblical texts about creation, we are primarily discussing the exegesis of Genesis 1.
We do not appeal to this history as finally authoritative; the Bible alone must have the final word. But a recounting of history may provide for us some helpful boundaries in this debate and give us a sense of what the best theological minds of the ages have done with this issue. In the fourteen centuries prior to the Westminster Assembly numerous commentaries on the days of creation in Genesis were produced.
Out of all of this literature it is possible to distinguish two general schools of thought on the nature of the six days. One class of interpreters tends to interpret the days figuratively or allegorically e. From the early church, however, the views of Origen, Basil, Augustine and Bede seem to have had the greatest influence on later thinking.
While they vary in their interpretation of the days, all recognize the difficulty presented by the creation of the sun on the fourth day. He regards them as hour days, but he acknowledges the problem of the sun being created only on the fourth day.
