    Exodus 20:11 For six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the Sabbath day, and hallowed it.

    God expected the Hebrew's to understand the universe was made in six literal days.

    We can't pick and chose what parts of the Bible we take seriously.

    It really does matter whether you believe in a young earth or a new earth whenever evangelizing to someone because you will instantly lose credibility with most people if you state your belief in young earth creationism. Without delving into it too much, young earth creationism is simply not factual, so you will lose all credibility in your witness to those people who know this to be a a scientific fact. You should really read "Darwin's Doubt," by Stephen Meyer if you want to shake someone's naturalistic worldview. Let's get real about the Creation story and outgrow young earth creationism, so we can really advance
    the Gospel in the world!
