    Are Christians called to Pacifism?
     
    The Old and New Testament both emphasize self-sacrifice in the context of interpersonal relationships.“I suggest you can’t build those interpersonal relationships if you’re walking down an alley in New York and somebody attacks you and tries to beat you up or kill you,” says Dr. H. Wayne House, Author, Theologian and Bible Scholar. “Those are not the same kind of situations.”
     
     
    The Most Difficult Bible Passage
     
    “I think the numbers in the Old Testament are probably some of the greatest problems we have,” says Dr. H. Wayne House, Author, Theologian and Bible Scholar. For instance, the Bible says the Israelites had 600,000 fighting men when they left Egypt. But at the height of the Roman Empire, the Roman army was less than 150,000 men. “That’s a problem to me.”
     
     
    Are Genesis 1 and 2 a literal creation account?
     
    “Genesis 1 is not poetry. It is a quasi prose,” says Dr. H. Wayne House, Author, Theologian and Bible Scholar. “I think that yom is a day, a 24 hour solar day.” That could mean that (1) the 24-hour days were consecutive, making up one six day week or (2) that there were an unknown number of days between each of the six 24-hour creative periods, allowing for long eons between the creative days. “Either one of those are consistent with the word yom.”
