The Hebrew word for "day" has three literal definitions: 12 hours, 24 hours, or a long time period. Reasons to Believe affirms the accuracy of the biblical writings and frequently engages in scholarly discussions concerning the best, and most faithful, way to interpret Genesis 1. As a "God-breathed" revelation, the Bible is completely without error (historically, scientifically, morally, and spiritually). God's written word is our supreme and final authority in all matters that it addresses. Many Christian leaders have affirmed that an old-earth creation interpretation does not compromise Scripture, including Norman Geisler, the late Gleason Archer, the late Chuck Colson, Jack Hayford, and the late Dr. Walter Martin.
