This is Ken Ham, with a passion for sharing God’s Word and the gospel with the world.


All this week we’re going back to the basics of creation. Yesterday we learned the first basic is the age of the earth: just 6,000 years. We don’t live in a billions-of-years old universe. And today’s basic ties in with that.

At the end of Creation Week, when God looked at all he’d made, he said it was “very good.” God’s original creation was perfect. Now, if our earth is old, then there were millions of years of death and suffering before God declared everything was “very good.” But that’s not the character of the God of the Bible—who calls death an enemy!

God’s original creation was free from death and suffering. Those are the result of Adam’s sin and the Curse.
