To quote Darwin to Lyell in 1845 "You are a heretic and know it"!! You are clearly not reading Holy Writ aright!!!

More seriously I totally agree with you and am concerned how any reference in the NT to creation is so often taken to prove a young earth, even if, as in every case, it says nothing about it. On of the worst examples is in Douglas Kelly's Creation and Change where he gives a very long list of NT texts which support a young earth. None do. BTW I think he did his Ph D under Tom Torrance.

I came across someone who was expelled from BJU for heresy, so I told him that was to his credit.

All this highlights the need for decent biblical interpretation

    The Bible tells us that God directly created all things (John 1:3).

  It doesn't. It says (John 1:3):

  3Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made.

  I am one of those things that have been made, but as far as I'm aware my parents "directly" made me; something that would be impossible were it not for the fact that God is Creator and Sustainer of the universe (without him nothing was made that has been made).
