Creation vs. Evolution
CREATION vs

CREATION vs. EVOLUTION

 

1. God created the world, not chance evolution:

                Gen.1:1   In the beginning God created the heaven & the earth

                Neh.9:6   Thou hast made the earth, & all things therein

                Isa.45:12 I have made the earth, & created man upon it

                Jn.1:1-3   All things were made by Him (Jesus); & without Him was not anything made that was made

                Col.1:16  For by Him (Jesus) were all things created

                Heb.1:2b                His Son...by Whom also He made the worlds

                (See also: Eph.3:9b; Psa.102:25; Isa.48:13; Acts 4:24; 14:15; 17:24.)

 

2. God's Word created (& maintains) the universe:

                Psa.33:6  By the Word of the Lord were the heavens made

                Psa.33:9  He spake, & it was done; He commanded, & it stood fast

                Col.1:17  He (Jesus) is before all things, & by Him all things consist [hold together]

                Heb.1:3a Upholding all things by the Word of His power

                Heb.11:3 The worlds were framed by the Word of God

 

3. God's creation is proof of His existence:

                Job 12:7-9              The earth...shall teach thee. Who knoweth not...that the hand of the Lord hath wrought this?

                Psa.19:1  The heavens declare the glory of God; & the firmament (universe & stars) sheweth His handiwork

                Rom.1:20                The invisible things of Him are...understood by the things that are made...so they are without excuse

 

4. Jesus believed in & quoted from Genesis:

                Mat.19:4,5              Have ye not read...He...made them at the beginning (See also Gen.1:27; 2:24.)

                Jn.5:46,47               If ye believe not his (Moses') writings [Genesis], how shall ye believe My Words?

 

5. False science doesn't have the answers:

                1Tim.6:20               Avoiding...oppositions of science falsely so called

                2Tim.3:7 Ever learning, & never able to come to a knowledge Psa.14:1 The fool hath said in his heart, "There is no God"

                Isa.44:24,25            The Lord turneth...wise men backward, & maketh their  knowledge foolish

                Jer.2:27   Saying to a stone, "Thou hast brought me forth"

                Jer 8:9     The [so-called] wise men have rejected the Word of the Lord; what wisdom is there in them?

                Rom.1:21-23           When they knew God, they glorified Him not as God,  professing themselves to be wise, they became fools

                Rom.1:25                They changed truth [of creation] into a lie [evolution] & worshipped the creature more than the Creator

                1Cor.1:18-21          Hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?

 

6. The Bible & true science:

A. The days of Genesis chapter one were not geological ages:

                Gen.1:11-19            [Plants created on day 3, the sun on day 4. Plants could live 24 hours without sun, but not eons]

                Exo.20:9-11            [Rest the 7th day, not eon] For in 6 days the Lord made heaven & earth...& rested the 7th day

B. Prophetic descriptions of recent "discoveries" about creation:

                Job 36:27,28           [Water cycle:] Rain according to the vapour thereof: which the clouds do drop & distill

                Eccl.1:7   All the rivers run into the sea...from whence the rivers come, thither they return again

                Job 38:22                Hast thou entered into the treasures of the snow? [No two snowflake crystals on earth are alike]

                Eccl.1:6   [Jet stream:] The wind...whirleth about continually, returneth according to his circuits

                Heb.11:3b              Things which are seen [material world] were not made of things which do appear

                Job 26:7  He...hangeth the earth upon nothing

                Isa.40:22 It is He that sitteth upon the circle of the earth

C. "Prehistoric" beasts are mentioned in the Bible. They co- existed with man before the flood:

                Gen.1:21 God created great whales [Heb: "great sea monsters"]

                Job 40:15-24          Behold now behemoth...he moveth his tail like a cedar

                Job 41:1-34            Leviathan...shall not one be cast down even at the sight of him? When he raiseth up himself...

D. Each species created distinct & separate; the unbridgeable gap of sterility separates species:

                Gen.1:11,12,21,24,25             Every (plant &) living creature...brought forth after their kind (species)

E. The age of the earth:

                NOTE: Secular history tells us that Solomon finished building the Jew-ish temple in 1012 BC.--And the genealogies listed in Gen.5:1-29; 7:6; 11:10-26; 21:5; 25:26; 47:5-12; Exo.12:40,41 & 1Ki.6:1,38 which cover from Adam to Solomon show that the earth was created only around 4,000 BC, about 6,000 years ago, not billions of years ago.

 

7. God, as the Creator, has rights of ownership of everything:

                Job 41:11                Whatsoever is under the whole heaven is Mine

                Psa.24:1,2               Earth is the Lord's...& they that dwell therein

                Psa.50:10-12          Every beast of the forest is Mine...the world is Mine

                Psa.89:11                The heavens are Thine, the earth also is Thine

                Psa.95:3-5              Sea is His...He made it: His hands formed the land

                (See also Psa.102:25; Isa.45:18.)

 

8. He expects & deserves reverence & worship from His creations:

                Psa.33:6-9              By the Word of the Lord were the heavens made...Let all the earth fear the Lord (&) stand in awe of Him

                Psa.148:5                Praise the name of the Lord: for He...created

                Eccl.12:1 Remember now thy Creator in the days of thy youth

                Isa.45:9   Woe unto him that striveth with his Maker

                Isa.48:12,13            Hearken unto Me...Mine hand hath laid the foundation of the earth, &...spanned the heavens

                Jer.32:17 Thou hast made the heaven & the earth by Thy great power...& there is nothing too hard for Thee

                Jer.33:2,3                Thus saith the Lord, the maker, Call unto Me

                Acts 14:15             Turn from vanities...unto God, which made heaven, & earth, & the sea, & all things that are therein

                (See also Jer.5:22; Isa.42:5; Amos 4:13.)

 

9. God has power to control His creation:

                Job 38:8-11            Here shall thy proud waves be stayed [must stop]

                Psa.104:5-35          [A description of God's control of creation]

                Psa.135:5-7            Whatsoever the Lord pleased, that did He... in earth

                (See also Job chapts. 26,28,38-41; Psa.148:6-14; Mat.8:26; Mk.4:39; Lk.8:24.)

 

10. As Creator, God is above all "gods":

                1Chr.16:26              The gods of the people are idols: but Lord made heavens

                Psa.95:3  The Lord is a great God...above all gods

                Jer.10:11-13            The gods...have not made the heavens & the earth, (God) hath made the earth by His power
