God's Rest Day
John Stear

I believe I have found the answer to the age old conundrum "why is there such cruelty and inhumanity in the world and why doesn't God do something about it?"

Christian fundamentalists believe that the Bible is the actual word of God and that the Universe and all it contains was created by God in six twenty-four hour days. On the other hand the more progressive Christians believe that each day in God's creation week was, in fact, many millions of years long, thus allowing for the incredible age of the Universe.

The Bible tells us God laboured for six days (billions of years) on His creation, and on the seventh day He rested. Therein lies the answer.

He's still resting! God's day off hasn't ended yet and nobody, not even God, wants to work on his day off!
