When were angels created?

Post  jc4JC on Thu Mar 07, 2013 10:34 pm

Following up from this week's discussion, here are two similar viewpoints on the creation of angels. The first takes a young Earth viewpoint and the second presents the possibility of an old Earth view.

I think apologetics press does a good job of explaining what we can draw out of scripture and where we should be agnostic.
"we know that angels must have been created on or before the first day of creation"

Here is an article in general on time and creation in which Craig critique's Brian Leftow's view that a temporal God cannot be the Creator of the universe.

In particular was this line:
"there is no reason why God could not exist in a sort of metaphysical time prior to the inception of physical time (and space). Such a time could be conceived substantivally along Newtonian lines or relationally as the concomitant of either changes in God or in His effects (say, God's creating angelic realms prior to His creation of physical space-time)."
