This question was published in Dr. John's Q&A by John Morris in February 1990. In this answer to the gap theory Morris gives a limited but adequate review of the gap theory, and makes an argument against it. Although we at Old Earth Ministries do not believe in the gap theory, if one wants to do so, they may. There are no valid theological reasons that would prevent one from believing in the gap theory. (since it appears that God does not care what you believe about the creation).

If you are not a Christian, and you have been holding out on making a decision for Christ because the Church always preached a message that was contrary to what you saw in the scientific world, then rest assured that the Bible is the inerrant Word of God, and you can believe in Christ and receive salvation, while still believing in an old earth.
