Sermon No: 40145-Creatio Ex Nihilo and the views of Old Earth Creationism
SERMON TOPIC: Creatio Ex Nihilo and the views of Old Earth Creationism
Speaker: Gavin Paynter
Date: 19 October 2018
Topic Groups: CREATIONISM, GENESIS, BOOK STUDY
Sermon synopsis: This study looks at creatio ex nihilo (the idea that God created the Earth and the rest of the universe out of nothing) versus creatio ex materia (the idea that heaven and earth already existed in a “formless and void” state, to which God brings form and order).
We also look at some theories that Old Earth Creationists have regarding the timing of the creative week, namely Theistic Evolution and Progressive Creationism. Next time we'll consider the Gap Theory and Young Earth Creationism.
