According to Their “Kind”

How Did God Create?

This is Ken Ham, on an apologetics mission to strengthen the global church with God’s Word.


This week we’re looking at how God created everything.

Well, Genesis chapter one tells us God created everything “according to their kinds.” This means each kind will reproduce more of its own kind—one kind won’t change into another kind. In other words, dogs produce dogs, cats produce cats, and elephants produce . . . elephants.

Of course, this is exactly what we observe.

Now, some Christians argue that God used evolution to create. But evolution involves the change of one kind into another. And yet the Bible says God created plants and animals according to their kinds.

No, God didn’t use evolution to create. God spoke life into existence.
