I personally believe in the Young-Earth Creation at the same time not holding fast the first day mentioned in Genesis, including Genesis 1:1-2. There may have been a time difference from Genesis 1:1-2 through Genesis 1:3; however, there is no evidence that states the same. This should not be, however, discordant issues for Christian believers since those who hold the first verse is a different time period, are still being faithful to the scriptures. This allows for what Driscoll and Breshears misname
What is the immanence of God? The immanence of God is linked to the evidence of how God relates to the world. The immanence of God speaks to the ability of God to be “everywhere present” in nature, human nature, and history. He is a personal God who is involved with our lives and with the order of the world.

A worldview is a particular philosophy of life or conception of the world. Everybody has their own opinion of a worldview. To me, a worldview is the perspective in which one person views the world.

The Gospel According to Matt Damon Spoiler Alert: “We are the people that make sure things happen according to plan.” Is it outside the realm of likelihood to assume that free will is not ‘free’ at all?
