I recently got to hear Ken Ham speak. He brought up the issue of the word "day" in Genesis and showed on one of the power-point screens that when one looks at all the other references of the word "day" in Scripture that are preceeded by a number or the words "evening"/"morning" that it ALWAYS means a literal 24 hour day.
I'm assuming Ken Ham is correct, but is this really the case when looking at the original languages for the word day?

<img src="/forum/images/graemlins/yep.gif" alt="" /> that is correct. See here: Reformed Theology and Six Day Creation, by Kenneth Gentry. <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/BigThumbUp.gif" alt="" />

Thanks for the affirmation that this is indeed the correct Scriptural information. The author of the article says some of the same things Ham brought up such as :

"we must hold to the teachings of Scripture, rather than the ever-changing doctrine of man."

Ken Ham was a delight to listen to. A few years ago I started questioning this whole issue for myself when I realized that I now have to really decide what exactly I'm going to teach my children in this area. While I've always leaned in the direction of the 24-hour literal days, I was curious about those out there like Hugh Ross (a progressive creationist). So I got a couple of his books out of the library to see what he had to say. He seems to make quite a case, and I can see why he's popular, but my discernment kicked in when reading his materials and there were many "red flags". Hugh Ross addresses the issue of the "days" in Genesis and of course has to re-interpret things to fit his view. Ken Ham just simply pointed out the simple exegesis of Scripture. It was interesting too that he gave examples of some famous theologians who didn't hold a literal view of the days in Genesis also. Very interesting.

Can you remember any of the specifics that Hugh Ross used to make his case for progessive creationism?
