Is Genesis Important?



This is Ken Ham, CEO of Answers in Genesis, the Creation Museum and the Ark Encounter.


Some people say what we believe about Genesis is just a side issue; it doesn’t really matter. But did you know all our major Christian doctrines are either directly or indirectly founded in Genesis?

Why is marriage one man and one woman? Well, Genesis tells us God ordained marriage that way. Why are we male and female? Genesis tells us God created us that way. Why are we sinners? Well, Genesis gives us the origin of sin.

Why do we die? Because death is the penalty for sin, as Genesis tells us. Why did Jesus need to come and die? Well, Genesis chapter 3 explains the reason!

What we believe about Genesis is really important! It’s our foundation! We need to believe all of God’s Word.
