The Creation Foundation
Developing a Christian Worldview 1

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. 20:8-11).

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 Corinthians 15:21-22).

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.
