Death Before Sin

Did God Use Evolution?

Part 1



This is Ken Ham, on a mission to strengthen the church with the Word of God.


Many Christians think that God could have used evolution to create. But such a belief puts death before sin. Genesis teaches us that God told Adam that the penalty for disobeying God is death. But he rebelled anyway and brought death and suffering into creation.

Now, this doctrine isn’t just found in Genesis. It is throughout the New Testament. The Apostle Paul makes it clear that the first Adam brought death into this world.

To say that God used evolution puts millions of years of death, suffering, and disease, before sin. So instead of mankind being responsible for death, God used death to create and then called a creation full of death and suffering “very good?” That is not the God of the Bible!
