Was There a Historical Adam?

This is Ken Ham, heading up the ministry with a full-size Noah’s Ark south of Cincinnati.


Many Christians today are questioning the existence of a historical Adam. They have adopted secular views of human origins, so they must throw away a literal Adam. Can you believe it?

For one, a historical Adam is foundational to the gospel. In the New Testament, Paul says that through the first man Adam, “death comes through a man, the resurrection of the dead comes also through a man.” It is because of the physical actions of the first man that there’s death in creation.

Without a physical Adam who sinned? And why did Jesus need to come and die physically to save us from sin? And why did He need to rise physically to conquer death?

Rejecting a historical Adam destroys the gospel!
