Gen 19:26, 21:20, 25:27, Exo 8:13, to 
name a few. Gen 19:26 goes like this:

"And she became a pillar of salt." >>

Thank you for acknowledging that an exegetical
analysis of this passage does not deny us the 
possibility of an Earth which "became" void and 
without form.

What about Isaiah 45:18?

Did God *create* in *vain*?
