Why Does Creation Matter?

by on


This is Ken Ham, often a guest on radio and TV on the Bible’s authority and reliability.


I’m often asked by Christians why Genesis and creation even matter. They say, “Shouldn’t we just be preaching the gospel?” Creation matters because the gospel is founded in Genesis! Scripture teaches that God originally made a perfect world, but Adam and Eve’s sin brought death into creation. It is because of Adam’s sin that we needed Jesus to come as the Last Adam. Without the Fall in Genesis, there would be no need for the Savior!

Creation is also important because it is an authority issue. You see, there are only two starting points: man’s word and God’s Word. Whenever we trust man’s word over God’s Word, we are making man the authority—not God. We need to start our thinking with God’s Word.
