Evolution vs Creation

Introduction: Did man come from apes? Was there a “Big Bang” in outer space eons of years ago? These questions demand an answer. How were the heavens and the earth created? Did God use the process of evolution to bring about Creation?

The book of Genesis answers these questions.

1. What Creation teaches: Something out of Nothing!
“In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth” (Gen 1:1).

The word “created” is בָּרָא,(baw-raw’), which means to shape, or create. In other words, God (אֱלהִים – el-o-heem’), spoke into existence something out of nothing.

Time, space, matter was created at an instant thru the spoken Word of God. Remember. There was never a time when God was not; He is from eternity past. And He will be in eternity future.

2. What Evolution teaches: It starts with the Big Bang.

Billions of years ago gases in outer space collided and it caused a Big Bang or explosion. Instantaneously, planets were flung into their proper order without missing a beat. Then through the process of radiation and mutation a single cell amoeba turned into a paramecium, and from there a tadpole, a fish, a monkey, and ultimately sophisticated man!

Question: If this theory is true, then where are the transitional fossils?

That is just it, there are none!

The creation model explains that almighty God made man from the dust of the earth, “And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul” (Gen 2:7).

He made a woman from the side (rib) of the man, “And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof; 22 And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man” (Gen 2:21-22).

So rather than man evolving from apes, the Bible teaches that God created both man and woman.

3. Is Evolution a religion?

Yes. It attempts to bypass accountability to a Creator. In fact, it leads down the road to man becoming his own god! This is called humanism. 

However, man cannot escape his “date with destiny”!

Conclusion: Whereas today students are being brainwashed into believing the BIG LIE; the Word of God adamantly refutes this nonsense. When comparing and contrasting the two models, one will more than likely embrace CREATIONISM over EVOLUTION.

One last thought: “Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear” (Heb 11:3).
