"The first week, in which God performed the work of creation in six days
and rested on the seventh day, was just like every other week. . . . The
weekly cycle of seven literal days, six for labor and the seventh for
rest, which has been preserved and brought down through Bible history,
originated in the great facts of the first seven days. . . .
But the infidel supposition, that the events of the first week required
seven vast, indefinite periods for their accomplishment, strikes
directly at the foundation of the Sabbath of the fourth commandment. It
makes indefinite and obscure that which God has made very plain. It is
the worst kind of infidelity; for with many who profess to believe the
record of creation, it is infidelity in disguise. . . .
Infidel geologists claim that the world is very much older than the
Bible record makes it. They reject the testimony of God’s Word because
of those things which are to them evidences from the earth itself. . . .
