Genesis 1:3-4 Day 1, Let there be light

Genesis 1:3-4 Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light. God saw that the light was good; and God separated the light from the darkness.

At this point the critic launches an objection. How can you have light without the sun? After all, the sun was created on day four and this is day one. How can there be day and night without the sun for the initial three days? This question shows the bias in the belief system of the evolutionist. The evolutionist assumes that the sun and the stars were present before the earth. Genesis states the earth was created before the light (day one), let alone the sun, moon, and stars (day four). Because of their bias, science makes a leap of faith and decides the Bible is not true.

Evolution is a belief system. It is a theory. Can these scientists go back in time? Were these scientists present to observe precisely what happened? Science can not go back and test. They must deal with the present. According to their doctrines of the Scientific Method, science can not replicate or reduplicate what happened. Their theory can not be proven in a lab. By their standards, science fails miserably. At the very least, scientists should realize their hypothesis is false and reconstruct another hypothesis. As Ken Ham accurately points out in The Genesis Solution, “The conflict is really a battle between two religious beliefs”.

The sun is not needed for light. There are also many types of light, not just visible light. Short-wave light includes ultraviolet light, X-rays, and others. Long-wave light includes infrared light, radio waves, and others. Light is produced by friction, by fire, by numerous chemical reactions, as well as the nuclear reactions of atomic fission and fusion, which is what we think is occurring in the sun. (Sunlight Before the Sun, John D. Morris, Ph.D.)

Light is energy. We know from verse two that the Spirit of God was moving on the face of the waters (Genesis 1:2). In effect, there is movement or energy over water. Note, land was not present yet. Land does not occur until day three. 1 John 1:5 This is the message we have heard from Him and announce to you, that God is Light, and in Him there is no darkness at all. Follow the thinking. God = light = energy = movement. God (light) is separate from darkness, just like His creation. God (light) is good, just like His creation. God can accomplish His will without the sun, He has other means. Isaiah 45:7 The One forming light and creating darkness, causing well-being and creating calamity; I am the LORD who does all these.

God’s word is radically different than the opinion of science. Isaiah 55:8 “For My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways,” declares the LORD.

This is not a scientific argument. God’s word is history.
