Mind The Gap !

When riding the subways in London, I saw oodles of “Mind The Gap” signs warning and reminding me to watch out for THE GAP between the platform and the train car. These were funny signs to those of us not used to seeing them. But they are a very important warning to be verrrrrry careful to not fall into the gap and get injured.

Similarly, there should be a warning to ‘Mind the Gap’ between verses 1 and 2 of the Bible. I am speaking specifically of Genesis 1:1-2.

Many folks insert a GAP of millions or billions of years between verses 1 and 2 of Genesis Chapter 1. They do this because they are trying to accommodate the long ages required with the theory of evolution and the millions and billions of years of time it requires.

So, instead of accepting the literal interpretation of the Bible of approximately 6000 or so years that the Bible teaches, they put a GAP of time -- a LONG gap of time between verses 1 and 2. Is this correct? Is there a gap here?

It is wise to Mind the Gap in the London Subway system, BUT,before you adopt the Biblical GAP theory, I suggest you read this very clear, brief, and concise article: HERE’S THE LINK.
