The Ruin and Restoration Package: Filling the Gap of the Ancient Earth
by Jack Langford, Steven Dill & GH Pember
God makes a definitive statement in Genesis 1:1, a verse we all know by heart. “In the beginning God created the heavens and the Earth.” It sounds so simple, BUT, the deeper one digs into the Hebrew language in that first chapter of Genesis, one has to ask the question . . . when exactly was “the beginning?” Was it hundreds of thousands, or even millions of years ago as astronomical science and some “Old-Earther’s” would tell us? Or was it a mere 6,000 years ago as “Young Earth” theologians would have us believe?
Back in the 18th and 19th centuries, most dispensational theologians believed in an ancient Universe and a relatively young, 6,000 year “re-created” Earth, prepared specifically for mankind. Thomas Aquinas, E. W. Bullinger, Lewis Sperry Chafer, Clarence Larkin, C.I Scofield, many of the ancient Church Fathers as well as many prominent Jewish sages taught of a significant “Gap” between Genesis 1:1 and Genesis 1:2. What caused the radical change in perspective? Did dinosaurs walk the Earth with man? Was Lucifer present in the Garden of Eden long before Adam and Eve arrived?
Gary Stearman and Jack Langford have been studying this subject in great depth for over 80 combined years. Don’t miss their discussion on one of the most controversial and complicated subjects in the Bible. Why is this important? Because the whole story of mankind’s redemption lies at the heart of God’s Creation model! Herein lies the foundation of the ancient battle between Jesus Christ and Lucifer—with mankind caught in the middle!
