God created “the heavens and the earth” fully-formed and functioning in six days, 6,000 years ago, at around 4004 BC. The context of Genesis 1, as well as other places in Scripture, make it clear these days were ordinary, 24-hour days. God’s original creation was perfect, with no death or suffering.
Did God create the whole universe, including the original plants, animals, and first two people (Adam and Eve) in six literal 24-hour days? Or did creation take place over millions of years? There is no biblical or scientific reason to be ashamed of believing in a recent six-day creation. God has spoken clearly and truthfully.
Biblical creation is supernatural as opposed to some long naturalistic process. The Creator did not need matter, large amounts of time, energy, or anything else. Biblical creation is important, because it identifies God, man, and is the basis of the gospel. It explains death, suffering, and foreshadows Christ and His redemption!
Theories and models of the various creation disciplines are based on several presuppositions, each of which is diametrically opposed to evolutionary assumptions. Most fundamentally, biblical revelations are the key for understanding this world, and the Bible is the basic, irreplaceable source of information.
Many Christians think that if we just take each of the days of creation as being figurative, we can harmonize the Bible with the big bang and a very old earth. But this only seems reasonable to those who pay insufficient attention to the order of events according to Genesis 1 and the order of events according to evolution theory.
Is creation vital to the authority of Scripture and the gospel, or are we just wasting our time and being divisive—or worse, turning people away from Christ?
Are you properly equipped to give a reasonable apologetic (defense) of the Christian faith to answer the skeptical questions of the world?
What is “creationism,” and is it always based on the Bible? What reservations do we have about the term “creationism”?
Can Bible-based creation science make successful predictions, explain the evidence, and properly explain reality?
Secular scientists often boldly declare that creationists aren’t “real” scientists. History and many modern, well-educated scientists would disagree!
Few debates get as heated as the debate between creation science and evolutionary science. The debate, in both secular and Christian circles, is far from over.
Did God really create everything in six literal, 24-hour days? A study of the Hebrew text and biblical teaching as a whole reveals that He did!
Genesis 1 reveals that God’s original creation was “very good.” Death and suffering are the result of Adam’s sin—we can’t blame God for it.
Creation overflows with evidence that points toward the Creator God. The design and complexity of life loudly declare, “There is a God!”
Intelligent Design, with its arguments for irreducible complexity, seems like a good alternative to the evolutionary worldview, but is the ID movement Christian?
