I must admit it: I continue to stand amazed at the number of conservative Christians and ministries that agree with AiG that we have to believe in a literal Adam and Eve, a literal bodily Resurrection of Jesus Christ, and a literal Virgin Birth—but they vehemently part ways with us when it comes to our stand on the six literal days of Creation.
Many Christians also insinuate that AiG is unloving, divisive, intolerant and not respectful of fellow Christians because we insist on taking God’s Word as written concerning the six days of Creation.
Ultimately, years of research and personal conversations have convinced me that the reason so many Christians won’t accept the six literal days of Creation is that they somehow want to allow for billions or millions of years to fit somewhere into history.
Thus, they are telling the world that man’s fallible dating methods (there’s no hint of millions of years in the Bible) can be trusted and the Bible has to be reinterpreted to fit. When some Christians tell people that they really prefer to trust man’s word rather than God’s, these people see this inconsistency and lose respect for Christianity and the Bible.
