In this Opbc online Pastor David Ickes joins me to discuss his new booklet on the Gap theory. Larkin, Ruckman, GH Pember and a host of other men taught this theory that is refuted soundly with scripture. It also plainly defends the literal 6 days of creation account that is found in the Bible.
I get it now. Thank you for tackling this topic. I know good men who hold to it, I believe without understanding the implications for the Gospel& salvation of those to come. Perhaps they will hear & heed. As for myself, when a reporting Bible translating 'missionary' let slip that they were justified in mistranslating scripture unifying Islam, Hinduism & Christianity (for the Gospel's sake...), because, after all, the Bible teaches we are all 'divine', created in the image of God ----arguing from Psalm 82 & John 10....I didn't understand how they could make such a leap. Let alone how so many highly educated church leaders & missionaries could not only swallow, but justify & viciously defend it. What a sop for pride! & a 'natural' for those arguing to 'prove' Christianity & the Bible from a historical progressive & 'positive' reading of history & eschatology! --- No sure foundation & reinserting the Alexandrian texts, using the Augustinian allegorizing method of Bible interpretation 'harmonizing' pagan & 'Judeo-Christian' thought.....with this 'gap' teaching, especially making Lucifer human---and the old Babylonian mysteries ----ties a lot of craft and cults together in one huge fornicating mess. Rome & the Jesuits already have it in their official doctrine. Add Mormonism in there, too.
