19th century preacher Charles Spurgeon had no problem with an Earth that is millions of years old. Spurgeon’s old Earth beliefs, are found in a sermon for example from his June 17, 1855 sermon “The Power of the Holy Ghost.”
In the 2nd verse of the first chapter of Genesis, we read, “And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.” We know not how remote the period of the creation of this globe may be—certainly many millions of years before the time of Adam. Our planet has passed through various stages of existence, and different kinds of creatures have lived on its surface, all of which have been fashioned by God. But before that era came, wherein man should be its principal tenant and monarch, the Creator gave up the world to confusion. He allowed the inward fires to burst up from beneath, and melt all the solid matter, so that all kinds of substances were commingled in one vast mass of disorder. [emphasis added]
Spurgeon and many others accepted the geological time frames of the prevailing thinking of his day.
