Answer by John Mackay Throughout the Holy Scriptures, God tells us that He is ‘from eternity to eternity’ (Isaiah 43:13). He had neither beginning, nor end of days. He does not age. He has no time. That is what Peter refers to when he wrote; “To the Lord a day is like a thousand years […]
Answer by John Mackay Let’s check the original source. In Genesis 3:6-8 we read: “when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree desirable to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate. She also gave to her husband with her, […]
Answer By John Mackay The background to this question is: Recently I ran a teachers’ conference in a large school. One teacher asked: “There are many Christians who believe in millions of years, so how do we incorporate this into our Christian schooling?” When challenged that a Christian should be more interested in what the […]
BIOLOGOS stated Noah’s flood was only a local event and is only a theological story. What do you think?
The original question was: I read on the BioLogos website that Noah’s flood was only a local event, and is really a theological story. I have also heard the claim that the Flood was a local event from other sources, including those who claim to be evangelical Christians. Why do you claim it was world-wide? […]
MOUNTAINS: Amos says God makes mountains rise. Is that relevant as he wrote in a different dispensation?
The original question was: In your answer on Mt Everest you referred to the prophet Amos 4:13, but aren’t statements about God causing the mountains to rise in Amos irrelevant because Amos was writing in a previous dispensation? Answer by John Mackay Amos wrote: For behold, He who forms mountains, And creates the wind, Who […]
SIX DAYS: Do any doctrines depend on the six days of Creation, or is it just an interesting but irrelevant issue?
Answer by John Mackay Let’s start with an eye-banger! Those who claim the Genesis six days of Creation narrative is not an issue as no Christian doctrine depends on it, actually means no one would have been able to recognise Jesus Christ as Lord or Saviour? So what do I mean? There is no doubt […]
CRUCIFIXION of Christ? Did Jesus just go into a coma on the cross and merely appear to rise from the dead?
The original question was: I am a medical doctor and a Christian. I am sure you would get more people in church if you taught Jesus didn’t actually die, he was just comatose and revived after three days. People would find it easier to believe and the churches would be full. Why don’t you teach […]

The original question was: If the Apostle Peter said a day is like a thousand years (2 Peter 3:8) how can you be dogmatic about a day being specifically a 24 hour day? Answer by John Mackay We do get asked this often, and sometimes very aggressively, particularly by theistic evolutionists who want the days […]
THIRD DAY: Why did Jesus say he would be buried for three days if he died on Friday and rose on Sunday?
The original question was: In Matthew 12:40 Jesus states “Just as Jonah was 3 days and 3 nights in the belly of a whale, so should the son of man be 3 days and 3 nights in the heart of the earth” (NKJV) Yet the church says Jesus was buried on a Friday and rose […]
