Genesis 1:1-1:2, Gap Theory

Question: Sorry to do this Jerry, but can u explain a lil about the gap theory between Gen 1:1 and 1:2?

Answer: There are many different versions of the gap theory, but the basic idea is that something happened in between Genesis 1:1 and 1:2, "the earth was without form, and void" Usually the fall of Satan is suggested. The support used for this theory is Isaiah 45:18, "did not create it in vain (void)". In my opinion, this theory has many problems, and not enough Biblical support. -PJ
