THE GENESIS ACCOUNT OF CREATION has been diminished because of the
prominence of the evolutionary theory. Through the Biblical account of creation
we understand where we came from, what went wrong with our world, and how it is
going to be fixed. The foundations of Christianity were built on the first
eleven chapters of Genesis. By discrediting the historical validity of Adam and
Eve, the fall, the flood, and the Tower of Babel, Christianity becomes just
another religion without any real validity. The following, adapted from an
article in Creation Magazine written by Jonathan Sarfati, gives
several important facts from which to build a solid Biblical worldview
concerning our beginnings:
The heavens, Earth, and everything in them were created in six consecutive
normal twenty-four hour days, the same as those of our working week (Exodus.
The earth is only about 6,000 years old. Jesus said mankind was on earth from
the ‘beginning of creation,’ not billions of years later (Mark. 10:6).
Adam sinned and brought physical death to mankind (Romans. 5:12-19; 1
Since man was the federal head of creation, the whole creation was cursed
(Romans 8:20-22), which included death to animals and the end of the original
vegetarian diet for both humans and animals (Genesis 1:29-30). How then could
dinosaurs have died billions of years before man ever existed?
God judged the world by a globe-covering Flood, which Jesus and Peter compared
with the coming Judgment (Luke 17:26-27; 2 Peter 3:3-7). This destroyed all land
vertebrate animals and people not on the ocean-liner-sized Ark.
God then judged the people by confusing their language at Babel—after they had
refused to spread out and repopulate the Earth after the Flood.
It is important to interpret everything in the world through a Biblical
framework, including science. When we understand God's perspective of
Creation all sciences are able to be built upon true science.
