Biblical Creationism

Genesis 1:1In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” (NKJV)

No book of the Scriptures matters more because EVERY BOOK OF THE BIBLE RESTS ON THIS ONE! The book of Genesis is the foundation for the doctrines that follow. Everything you base your Eternal destiny upon starts in Genesis:

A.  INSPIRATION: The Creator in Genesis WROTE the Scriptures!  Hebrews 1:1-2

B. DEITY OF CHRIST: The Creator in Genesis is the One who DIED for you and me!  Hebrews 1:3

C.  FINAL JUDGMENT: The CREATOR in Genesis is the ONE we will all someday face to enter Heaven or HellActs 17:24,

D. SALVATION: The CREATOR of Genesis is the ONLY ONE who can die in your place on the Cross!  Romans 5:12-15

E. TRUSTWORTHINESS OF CHRIST: The CREATOR in Genesis is the ONLY ONE who knows what happened at that event!    Mark 10:6

F.  THE WHOLE  MESSAGE OF THE BIBLE: The CREATOR in Genesis is the ONLY ONE able to send a message like we have in the SCRIPTURES!  Colossians 1:15-17

The biblical account of creation is not a little thing.  It’s not something like a lot of denominations are saying, you know, we just don’t know what to do with that.  It’s allegorical, it’s mythical, we just won’t talk about it.  It’s too divisive.  It is very divisive.  It has a lot to do with where you spend eternity, because only those who worship God as creator of heaven (that’s the universe), of the earth (that’s the planet we’re on), of the seas and of everything underneath, only those truly are worshipping Him as their Redeemer. 

All attempts to compromise the Scriptures should be resisted. There are some popular views some Christians hold that are very dangerous:

1     Evolution is the Satanic religion of the Fall, Cain, Babel, idolatry, paganism, humanism and all other evils.

2     Gap Theory destroys Adam’s original sin. It puts him at the head of a creation that sits atop a multi-billion year old graveyard of fossils. This monument to sin, death and destruction before Adam is incongruous to the Word of God .

3     Age Day Theory destroys the reliability of the text. It is repeatedly stated and believed by the Scripture writers that the account of Gen 1 is true. The age Day Theory states the sun had to come before the fourth epoch. So the scriptures can’t be trusted.
