comment Plants created before the sun?
The verse I've referenced indicates that God could be viable replacement as a light source. The sun is not a spiritual light and it is referenced in the same verse. When considering the source of light in Genesis 1:3, we know that there are very few physical options as far as light sources go. Either God, the earth, or another light source that he created before the sun was made. This answer (and the verse I've referenced) indicates that of those three, God himself is a possibility.

comment In the Garden of Eden ,did the temperature fall,after the “fall of man”?
Why did God make garments of skin for Adam and Eve when they had already made clothing for themselves? addresses the Christian viewpoint on this directly.

Animal skins signify the requirement of a sacrifice. An animal needed to be killed in order to produce the skins and cover their sin - it was the first demonstration of animal sacrifice in the bible.

It depends to what extent they were covered by animal skins. It's possible to have all the right bits covered and not be "too warm". As such, I'm not sure that the conclusion the temperature rose is one that's absolutely necessary (although the question about the temperature change itself is not one that I can answer).

How can "let there be light" be taken figuratively?

comment Plants created before the sun?
I don't have a verse to back this up hence no answer but isn't there a verse that mentions that God is the light in heaven? if God radiates light then there was light just not from the sun until day four.

comment Is the use of the smallest possible example meant to indicate a complete absence of faith in Jesus sayings related to mustard seeds?
I think the mustard seed image is used to indicate how every small individual's contribution to the kingdom can be used by God in a big way. hermeneutics.stackexchange.com/q/4447/640
