World Thinking Day 2021 is on Monday, February 22, 2021: Do you think God created the world in a literal six days? Why or why not?
Monday, February 22, 2021 is World Thinking Day 2021. World Thinking Day, formerly Thinking Day, is celebrated annually on February 22 by all Girl Guides and Girl Scouts.
World Thinking Day, formerly Thinking Day, is celebrated annually on February 22 by all Girl Guides and Girl Scouts.
Thinking Day came from from the desire by Girl Guides / Girl Scouts to dedicate each day to considering and appreciating the worldwide spread of those actions. Every year a taking part country is chosen and it is culture and general living conditions considered on during the day by all guides and scouts. The concept is to produce a greater awareness and knowledge of different cultures and then any global concerns regarding that specific region. It may sound similar to individuals endless, global conferences attended at great cost by political figures, which rarely show results. The Lady Guides and Scouts Associations, however, do things in a different way.A 1p donation is asked for from each member meant for projects that aid Girl Guides / Girl Scouts from member nations in need of assistance. Political figures should possibly dedicate eventually yearly to taking into consideration the simple plans as formatted through the caring and uncluttered minds from the world’s youth.
Yes, I believe that God created the world in a literal six day period. Each day was an evening and morning. In Exodus 20:11 God said, "For in six days the LORD made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day." Like Him we have six days of work and one day of rest (Deuteronomy 5:13).
Some people argue that one day equals a thousand years because of something the apostle Peter said. He said: "But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day [is] with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day." Peter was talking about God promises. He was warning believers that in the last days there would be scoffers who would scoff at the promise of the Lord's coming. They will ask: “Where is the promise of His coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of creation.”
But he did not want the believers to be discouraged so he told them "But you must not forget this one thing, dear friends: A day is like a thousand years to the Lord, and a thousand years is like a day. The Lord isn’t really being slow about his promise, as some people think. No, he is being patient for your sake. He does not want anyone to be destroyed, but wants everyone to repent." (verses 8, 9, NLT).
Notice Peter did not say that one day is a thousand years or that a thousand years is one day. He said that one day [is] "as" a thousand years, and a thousand years "as" one day. Psalm 90:4 says: For a thousand years in your sight are like a day that has just gone by, or like a watch in the night.
Peter was saying that even if a thousand years pass by, the Lord will not forget His promise. It is like only a day to Him. Peter makes it clear in verse 10 that the day of Lord will come.
So, God created the world in six literal days not in six thousand years.
can you give me ideas on world thinking day?
World thinking day and night. Thinking of all the thoughts being thought up across the globe. Based on instincts, based on memories and last but not least creative thought based upon inspiration. The last comes upon us like tiny droplets that overflowed from the infinite pool of inspiration.
What are other days were people thought the world would end?
About 30 CE: The Christian Scriptures (New Testament), when interpreted literally, appear to record many predictions by Jeshua of Nazareth (Jesus Christ) that God's Kingdom would arrive within a very short period, or was actually in the process of arriving. In Matthew 24:34, Yeshua is recorded as saying: "...This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled." Since the life expectancy in those days was little over 30 years, Jesus appears to have predicted his second coming sometime during the 1st century CE. It didn't happen.
About 60 CE: Interpreting the Epistles of Paul of Tarsus literally, his writings seem to imply that Jesus would return and usher in a rapture during the lifetime of persons who were living in the middle of the 1st century. More details.
2nd Century CE: Prophets and Prophetesses of the Montanist movement predicted that Jesus would return sometime during their lifetime and establish the New Jerusalem in the city of Pepuza in Asia Minor.
365 CE: A man by the name of Hilary of Poitiers, announced that the end would happen that year. It didn't.
375 to 400 CE: Saint Martin of Tours, a student of Hilary, was convinced that the end would happen sometime before 400 CE.
500 CE: This was the first year-with-a-nice-round-number-panic. The antipope Hippolytus and an earlier Christian academic Sextus Julius Africanus had predicted Armageddon at about this year.
968 CE: An eclipse was interpreted as a prelude to the end of the world by the army of the German emperor Otto III.
992: Good Friday coincided with the Feast of the Annunciation; this had long been believed to be the event that would bring forth the Antichrist, and thus the end-times events foretold in the book of Revelation. Records from Germany report that a new sun rose in the north and that as many as 3 suns and 3 moons were fighting. There does not appear to be independent verification of this remarkable event.
1000-JAN-1: Many Christians in Europe had predicted the end of the world on this date. As the date approached, Christian armies waged war against some of the Pagan countries in Northern Europe. The motivation was to convert them all to Christianity, by force if necessary, before Christ returned in the year 1000. Meanwhile, some Christians had given their possessions to the Church in anticipation of the end. Fortunately, the level of education was so low that many citizens were unaware of the year. They did not know enough to be afraid. Otherwise, the panic might have been far worse than it was. Unfortunately, when Jesus did not appear, the church did not return the gifts. Serious criticism of the Church followed. The Church reacted by exterminating some heretics. Agitation settled down quickly.
1000-MAY: The body of Charlemagne was disinterred on Pentecost. A legend had arisen that an emperor would rise from his sleep to fight the Antichrist.
1005-1006: A terrible famine throughout Europe was seen as a sign of the nearness of the end.
1033: Some believed this to be the 1000th anniversary of the death and resurrection of Jesus. His second coming was anticipated. Jesus' actual date of execution is unknown, but is believed to be in the range of 27 to 33 CE.
1147: Gerard of Poehlde decided that the millennium had actually started in 306 CE during Constantine's reign. Thus, the world end was expected in 1306 CE.
1179: John of Toledo predicted the end of the world during 1186. This estimate was based on the alignment of many planets.
1205: Joachim of Fiore predicted in 1190 that the Antichrist was already in the world, and that King Richard of England would defeat him. The Millennium would then begin, sometime before 1205.
1284: Pope Innocent III computed this date by adding 666 years onto the date the Islam was founded.
1346 and later: The black plague spread across Europe, killing one third of the population. This was seen as the prelude to an immediate end of the world.
1496: This was approximately 1500 years after the birth of Jesus. Some mystics in the 15th century predicted that the millennium would begin during this year.
1524: Many astrologers predicted the imminent end of the world due to a world wide flood. They obviously had not read the Genesis story of the rainbow.
1669: The Old Believers in Russia believed that the end of the world would occur in this year. 20,000 people burned themselves to death.
