Mormons Not Authorized to Say How Long Earth’s Creation Took

17 October

Psalms 33:6-9; “By the word of the LORD were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth. 7 He gathereth the waters of the sea together as an heap: he layeth up the depth in storehouses. 8 Let all the earth fear the LORD: let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of him. 9 For he spake, and it was done; he commanded, and it stood fast.”

earth-1 Journal of Discourses 18:231; “It is said in this book (the Bible) that God made the earth in six days.  This is a mere term, but it matters not whether it took six days, six months, six years, or six thousand years. The creation occupied periods of time. We are not authorized to say what the duration of these days was whether Moses penned these words as we have them, or whether the translators of the Bible have given the words their intended meaning. How ever, God created the world. If I were a sectarian I would say, according to their philosophy, as I have heard many of them say hundreds of times, “God created all things out of nothing; in six days he created the world out of nothing.” You may be assured the Latter-day Saints do not believe any such thing.” –  Brigham Young, Salt Lake City, Sunday Afternoon, Sept. 17, 1876

Genesis 1:31; “And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.”

Brigham lied, but we’ll tell you the truth!

God created the earth in six days.

According to the Bible, if you hear anyone else telling you otherwise, you can know they’re not telling you the truth.
