“Can’t the days of creation be long periods, since a day to the Lord is a thousand years to us?”

Some also misapply Gen. 2:17 to Adam, saying that he died “the day” he sinned because he lived less than a thousand years (see 5:5). But even if Adam had lived to 1,001 years, Gen. 2:17 would still be true: Adam did die the very day he chose to disobey God—he died spiritually that instant.

Genesis 2:17 but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die

  1. A day like a thousand & a thousand like a day does apply to God’s perspective-but in Genesis, God said an evening-morning was the 1st day=24hrs no other way

  2. Chuck says:

    It was 6 actual 24 hour days. See the logic behind this at the Answers in Genesis site.
