Dr. C. Van Dam: The First Day

Dr. Cornelis Van DamWe’ve just added another helpful article by Dr. C. Van Dam.  First published in 1989 in Clarion, this article looks at the nature of the first day.  Specifically, Van Dam looks at whether it is impossible to believe that there was light before there were light-giving or light-reflecting objects like the sun, moon, and stars.  After all, according to Genesis 1, these celestial objects didn’t appear until the fourth day — and yet light is said to have been created on the first.  Here too, the Word of God is completely trustworthy.  You can find the article under our “Articles” tab, or by clicking right here.
