Augustine's Views On The Creation Of The Seven-Day Period

Satisfactory Essays
Augustine believed that God created the Earth all at the same time and that the creation of the seven-day period came from the Bible that represents a logical framework. Augustine believed that time was nothing in reality but that it was all in the human mind and did not really exist. He said that time could not be infinite because God himself created it. Augustine always believed that the Bible should not be interpreted literally, because it contradicts what science has taught them and the God-given reason. When the scatter of Jews occurred, by the Roman Empire, Augustine believed it was a fulfillment of prophecy and they would convert to Christianity at the end of time. He also believed that God had chosen the Jews as “special” people.
