The Key Issue

Part 5



This is Ken Ham, a missionary to our evolutionized culture and even to the church.


This week we’ve seen that the style of the book of Genesis, the words of Jesus, and the writers of the New Testament all agree: Genesis is history.

But why does this even matter?

Well, because every biblical doctrine of theology is grounded in the history in Genesis. Think about it . . . if Adam wasn’t historical, there’s no such thing as original sin . . . and death isn’t really the punishment for sin. So why did Jesus need to come and die? Yes, the gospel is grounded in a literal Genesis!

It’s also an issue of biblical authority. Will we allow God and his Word to be the authority in all areas . . . or will we put ourselves as the authority over God’s Word?
