Light - its source and reflection from celestial bodies

The Word of God states in Genesis 1:1> in the beginning God created heaven and earth; and the earth was void and without form.

The above statement are book-ends referring to the creation and after the passing away of this the first earth.
This is exactly what Revelation 21:1 also reveals.

Even affirmed in Isaiah 46:10 > I have declared the end from the beginning.

You can’t have a any beginning earlier than Genesis 1:1 in the Word of God. HE is perfect in all His ways.

Everything in the Bible is about history of the first earth from God’s omniscience and point of view because what He has purposed will always come to pass. There is no circumventing His sovereign will.

The gap theory of pseudotheologians is nothing but a deception aimed at causing doubts in the minds of believers about the veracity of the 6 day creation account of Genesis.

As regards “light” it states in Genesis 1:3 that God brought light into existence with His words.
The sun and moon placed in the firmament on the 4th day only reflect the light created in the beginning towards it’s intended destination and purposes.
We have to differentiate between the source of light and the celestial bodies that merely reflect that light.

Many do not take the bible as literal nor as anything more than ancient writings of a backwards pre-scientific ancient Middle East culture.


And many of us take it as Gods inerrant word.

And that is where the problems begin.

Leave the new person alone.

@JPaul welcome to Peaceful Science. Glad you are here. Seems like you are a YEC?

ok, I welcome the new person with human kindness, empathy and 21st century knowledge and reasoning. Welcome.


Clarification please:

Are you saying that the Sun isn’t a light source, only a light reflector?
If so, why can we not detect this light before it is reflected by the Sun?
Why does the moon not also reflect this light before it reaches the Sun?
