The atheist tells us that there is no God, that everything that exists is the result of time and chance. Scripture tells us in Psalms 14:1 The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. We can rightly conclude then that an atheist is a fool. But what of those who claim to be Christians yet ardently defend the evolution of man, denying the very God who gives eternal life? Generally they begin by saying that the Bible does not tell us how God created, but that is false. Scripture tells us that God spoke and it was so. Hebrews 11:3 tells us Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear. It is not likely that God would create the universe by His word and then leave the epitome of His creation, made in His own image, to chance. Next they will tell us that the first 11 chapters of Genesis are not to be interpreted literally but that they are a mythological story simply showing us something about God, what, I don’t know. What does the Scripture of the New Testament tell us about Divine Creation? Hebrews 11:3 Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear. John 1:3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. Colossians 1:16 For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: If we look at the words of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, and of the New Testament writers we see that they understood Genesis 1-11 as a historical account of the pre flood period. Please note that though I refer to the particular human author of a given book I believe in the plenary verbal inspiration of the Bible, that God Himself is the author. Jesus Christ quotes Genesis 2:24 in Matthew 19:5. Are we to believe that Jesus Christ, who we say died that we might be saved, used a mythological story to describe the sanctity of marriage? It is obvious that Jesus Christ believed in a real Adam and real Eve as He says: Matthew 19:5 And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh? Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ obviously thought Noah was a real man or He misled us all for He said in Matthew 24:37 But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man. Luke the physician obviously believed that Adam was a real man since he writes in Luke 3:38 Which was the son of Enos, which was the son of Seth, which was the son of Adam, which was the son of God. The Apostle Paul obviously thought Adam was a real man and that Eve was a real woman, that the story of the creation and fall of man were literal since he writes: Romans 5:14 Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over them that had not sinned after the similitude of Adam’s transgression, who is the figure of him that was to come. 1 Corinthians 15:22 For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive. 2 Corinthians 11:3 But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ. 1 Corinthians 15:45 And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit. 1 Timothy 2:13 For Adam was first formed, then Eve. The author of Hebrews certainly believed that the flood of Genesis 7ff was real and world wide since he writes in Hebrews 11:7 By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by the which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith. Peter also believed that the flood of Genesis 7ff was real since he states in 2 Peter 2:5 And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly. The Apostle Peter certainly did not believe that Genesis 1-11 was mythological when he said in 1 Peter 3:20 Which sometime were disobedient, when once the longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing, wherein few, that is, eight souls were saved by water. It is obvious that the writers of the New Testament believed the Scripture of Genesis 1-11, but then they are the words of God Himself.
