The human doctrine of creationism is based on the traditions of man, rather than Biblical truth. Consider, for example, Job 38:4. Here, God points out that Job was not present at creation, illustrating the fact that no human was. This basic observation leads to the question of how we can know anything about the creation account. Obviously, whatever we know was given to us directly from God, and as such, is the result of prophetic revelation.
The fact that this perspective is consistently ignored leads to blatant eisegesis: reading our own ideas into Scripture, rather than listening for the meaning inherent in it.
A great example of this is the approach of taking the Genesis creation account literally, despite the clear use of figurative terms in passages such as Genesis 2:2, in which God rested. Of course, God did not need to take a break to get His energy back; this is clearly an example of anthropomorphism. And yet, the typical approaches used in creationism consistently ignore this and insist on interpreting it according to human tradition, rather than depending on Scripture.
Instead, we should pay attention to the most repeated concept in the passage: “And God said…”, and recognize that our God talks. All through the Bible, He speaks to His people, and it is no different today. Interpreting the creation account properly is not only a matter of solid exegetical technique based on good hermeneutics, but of getting to know the Author, and asking Him.
