Creation Moment 7/1/2017 Refuting the "Gap Theory"

In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. Genesis 1:1-2

Mind the gap” is the refrain constantly heard on the London Underground, warning people to be careful not to step into the gap between the platform and the train. But “mind the gap” would also be
a good refrain for students of the Bible!

There are some who suggest that there was a gap between Genesis chapter 1 verses 1 and 2. Some even suggest that this gap could have lasted for millions, or billions of years, during which Lucifer fell from heaven, pre-Adamic hominids lived, alongside other animals, including dinosaurs. And eventually, God destroyed the world in a so-called Luciferian Flood, leading into verse 2.

There is neither Scriptural nor scientific warrant for this so-called Gap Theory. Indeed, the Bible states the opposite. In Exodus 20:11, God states, as a reason for the Fourth Commandment, that He created the heavens and the earth in six days. This means that Genesis 1:1 – the creation of the heavens and the earth – is part of the six days. Therefore, there can be no gap between the first and second verses of the Bible." CM
