But science can't tell us everything. Nine are scientifically correct, and just two are in the wrong order: Our perception of this is 24 hours. Another interesting theory is presented by Dr.
Out of these covenants the good news goes forth that the God who creates heaven and earth is the same God who saves-from bondage in Egypt, from bondage to sin. Or we live in our heads, intellectually or imaginatively, in the realm of ideas or fantasies.
