An Attack on the Gospel


Part 5



This is Ken Ham, CEO and co-founder of the apologetics ministry of Answers in Genesis.


What’s the connection between our sin and Jesus’ death? And why did Jesus need to come and die?

Scripture makes it clear death is the penalty for sin. It’s because Adam literally rebelled against God that Jesus needed to come and die a physical death to pay for sin. But if we add millions of years and evolution into Genesis, we undermine this truth.

You see, millions of years puts death before sin. And if that’s the case, death isn’t the penalty for sin—so why did Jesus need to come and die?

Death is the penalty for sin, and the gospel is true because the history in Genesis is also true.
