The entire cosmos with all its countless stars, all basic types of life, as well as man, were created directly by God in one week, as described in Genesis.
Evolution: The entire cosmos, our earth, and all life-forms resulted from an extremely slow process of development from the simple to the complex, from barely structured to higher forms of organization, from inanimate to animate, and from low life-forms to higher levels. All organisms can be arranged in a line of descent and development right up to man. According to the evolutionary view, this process is still continuing. All earlier living organisms were merely temporary forms of life at that moment, and present-day individuals should then be regarded as halfway stations for future developments (see evolutionary assumption E11). In this respect, Wuketits believes that evolution as such has not stopped [W7, p. 275]. “It seems justified to expect new kinds and new degrees of differentiation to appear.” The following quotations confirm the assumption of continuing evolution in various areas:
The Bible: The entire cosmos with all its countless stars, all basic types of life, as well as man, were created directly by God in one week, as described in Genesis. The whole of creation was finished and complete. All biological changes that occurred since that time only resulted in diversification within the original kinds (e.g., the origin of races).
We read in Genesis 2:2 that “
By the seventh day God had finished
the work He had been doing; so on the seventh day He rested from
all His work.” And in Hebrews 4:3: “
And yet His work has been
finished since the creation of the world.”
Answers in Genesis is an apologetics ministry, dedicated to helping Christians defend their faith and proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ effectively. We focus on providing answers to questions about the Bible—particularly the book of Genesis—regarding key issues such as creation, evolution, science, and the age of the earth.
