Skeptic I don't discard science. I suppose my work history has left an impression on me. Like I previously stated too much to post. And upsets me too much to go into on here.
I'm thankful for medical science but even that has left me with a lot of unanwered questions. Of which I'm quite upset about at the moment. For several reasons.
All we have to rely on at this moment is God. That's all I can say.

If you had a sign in. I would pm you and explain this a little more. I've even had the pleasure to converse with several atheists. And believe it or not, we just talked. I didn't try to convert them or vice versa. Ok?

I actually enjoyed reading Evolution man and Pawpaw posts about science. I don't claim to know about such things. My college degree was in accounting. No formal education in science. I'm afraid I've had the misfortune of working around some "god like" doctors. Lol. I'm not the type to have "white coat syndrome". I know their only human. ;) I do respect them though.
Accounting has allowed me to have a vast work experience. Some areas I've enjoyed working in, more than others. Conversation was wonderful and learning about being good stewards of our land.

Evolution is a direct opposition to the Adam & Eve story. If you don't examine all sides of an issue, can you claim to have an open mind?

Are you speaking of Hebrew days, Greek days, Roman days or Wednesdays?
The bible in English says days and it has said days for 400 years - if it is something else - change it.
You do not understand evolution so you won't know why it is in direct opposition to Adam & Eve. Here's a clue - it has nothing to do with days.

God's blessings are inextricably linked to obedience. Jesus said, "If you love me, keep my commandments." You have to obey God to be blessed. He curses disobedience. 
Deuteronomy 28:1,2,15 - "...if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe and to do all his commandments..., ...all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee, But it shall come to pass, if thou wilt not hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe to do all his commandments...,...that all these curses shall come upon thee, and overtake thee."

there you go again. your brilliance should answer the question. how long are god's day's.another dodge.

24 hour's or 1 million years. I understand evolution completely and if god's days were measured in millions of years it ties write in with your theory of evolution. you try to defeat god by having us believe evolution could not be the work of god.

try again. yes and I am ready for your answer about changing the bible which I think may be older than 400 years.

..........TRUST ME TODAY, I’M SURE!.........

OK Bishop, so you are Mr. Positive!...You lift us up on a daily basis and your very favorite saying is “Everything is going to be all right!” And on what sir do you base all those promises you make? ARE YOU SURE?
Glad you asked!....My friend Paul said in Romans 8:38-39 This is the Living Bible Translation.
Romans 8:38-39
Living Bible (TLB)
38 For I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from his love. Death can’t, and life can’t. The angels won’t, and all the powers of hell itself cannot keep God’s love away. Our fears for today, our worries about tomorrow,
39 or where we are—high above the sky, or in the deepest ocean—nothing will ever be able to separate us from the love of God demonstrated by our Lord Jesus Christ when he died for us.

It matters not what you are going through today or how bad it looks right now. Everything is going to be all right!

..........TRUST ME TODAY, I’M SURE!.........

""How Long Is A Day?

There is a theory that says each of God's days in Genesis were actually millions of years for us. Is this true? Maybe we need to ask what does the word "day" mean in Genesis?

The Hebrew word "yom" is translated as day in Genesis. Just as our word "day" can have different meanings based on its context, so can the word "yom". For example, in the Old Testament "yom" is translated to mean a 24 hour day 1109 times. It means a long, long period of time--such as an age--about nine times.

However, every time the word "yom" is used with the term evening or morning in the Bible, it means a regular 24 hour day.

Every time the word "yom" is used with a number, such as "40 yom" (40 days), it means a regular 24 hour day.

What we now see is that in Genesis chapter one God is going out of His way to emphasize that each day is a normal 24 hour day. For example in verse five He says:

"And there was evening and there was morning, one day."

Verse 8: "And there was evening and there was morning, a second day."

Verse 13: "There was evening and there was morning, a third day."

For each day of creation the pattern is the same: evening, morning, number, day. Just part of that pattern, for example using the words "evening" and "day" together, tell us it was a 24 hour day. But God tells us in three ways -- evening, morning, number -- that the word day means... an ordinary 24 hour day.

God is making it very clear: He created everything in six ordinary days.""

Then support your figures. Where does 1 day = I million years? Why not a decade, a century or 3.142 seconds?
When was your bible translated to English?

Yeah, they were saying that to the British during the blitz when the favored song was "we'll meet again."

On his Facebook page he claims "In April of 1985 I spent 3 minutes in another dimensional realm talking with Jesus. When I got back, 4 hours had passed"

Yeah, very interesting...
