Many Christians believe they can add millions of years into the Bible. And usually, it is the days of creation that each get stretched out . . . to be millions of years long. But think about it: when God gives the Sabbath commandment in Exodus, it says, “For in six days the Lord made the heavens, the earth, the sea, and all that is in them.” God commanded the Israelites to work for six days and rest for one day. This was copying the pattern that God Himself established in Genesis 1.
If God didn’t create in six days and rest for one, then this command in Exodus was meaningless. Should we work for millions of years and then rest for a million years? Of course not!
You can’t fit millions of years into Genesis!
