This series investigates the theory of evolution, revealing that there is much more to the story than what is commonly taught. After laying a truthful foundation and building upon it, the reader will see that the theory collapses, and that the confusing series of explanations, definitions and suppositions supporting it are weak and shallow. Each part builds upon the previous, and the entire series should be read to grasp the fullest picture—and the vital implications that flow from its conclusions.
Evolution can be compared to a murder case in a court of law. There may be physical “evidence,” and witnesses with “sound testimony.” However, if the defense could provide an airtight alibi for the accused, there would be no need to prove that a murder weapon did not belong to the defendant or that other physical evidence (or so-called evidence) was not related to the defendant. A sound alibi would cause the case to be dismissed.
Throughout this article series, we have demonstrated that evolutionary processes could not account for the universe, that it is impossible for life to come from non-life, and the theory violates fundamental laws of science! No amount of arguments, hypothesis or suppositions matters. Evolution has no foundation! Nothing can change these facts. The case is closed.
In Part 6, we read Romans 1, showing how the minds of scientists and others have been blinded because they reject plain facts.
However, part of the verse was not quoted: “For the invisible things of Him [God] from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse” (vs. 20).
You have seen the pillars of evolution torn down. The passage above now applies to you. May God’s words thunder in your mind!
Because of all the proofs showing “His eternal power and Godhead,” the same God who inspired Romans 1:20 to be written also inspired Psalm 14: “The fool has said in his heart, There is no God” (vs. 1).
It should now be no surprise why Arno Penzias, a recipient of the Nobel Prize for physics, stated, “Creation is supported by all the data so far.”
We do not have the space here to begin an in-depth look into Creation. Our website provides a wide array of articles demonstrating proofs that the universe was created. With evolution out of the way, it is important to look at God’s Word—the Holy Bible—to appreciate all we have seen.
This article will be unlike the previous six. Evolution has been handily dismantled, but there is much more to investigate—and some misconceptions to dispel concerning the Bible.
We have finished examining what man teaches—we are now ready to investigate what God teaches.
There exists within professing Christianity an idea that one can believe in some variant of evolution, while still advocating creation. This could not be further from the truth. The remainder of this article will demonstrate that these positions are diametrically opposed!
First, some groundwork. All buildings have a foundation, the base on which the rest of a building stands. Without it, the structure is never sound. Therefore, a correct foundation ensures a building meant to last.
You may be surprised to learn that the New Testament Church was also built upon a foundation. The Bible states that the Church is “built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the chief cornerstone” (Eph. 2:20).
In construction, a cornerstone is the first stone to be laid. Verse 20 indicates that Jesus Christ was established before the Old Testament prophets, and reflects the many Old Testament prophecies foretelling His First Coming.
The verse also has another interesting aspect to it. The teachings in God’s Church come from apostles and prophets, tying together both the Old and New Testaments. In fact, the New Testament points to the Old Testament much more than most people realize. The apostle Paul, in particular, quoted the Old Testament numerous times. In the book of Romans alone, it was quoted 57 times! This is also true of the two epistles to the Corinthians. The first quotes the Old Testament 21 times and the second 10 times.
But what does this have to do with evolution? How do all the quotes, references and scriptures prove Creation? The link is in who the New Testament writers quoted—and the events they referenced.
The New Testament—and the entire Bible—was recorded for a purpose. II Timothy 3:16 states, “All scripture is given by inspiration of God.” Keep this in mind as we read New Testament verses.
The scriptures listed below cover a wide range of topics. Yet they all have one thing in common: Each is a statement from Jesus Christ or an apostle about events and people of the Old Testament.
When you read them, ask yourself if Christ and the apostles were confused or had blurred the truth to help make a statement. The only other option is to see the quotes for what they are—the inspired Word of God! These verses will help you understand why it is impossible to espouse evolution while declaring oneself a Christian:
“For Adam was first formed, then Eve” (I Tim. 2:13-15). This verse directly endorses the Creation account.
“Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses...” (Rom. 5:14).
“…the first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam [Christ] was made a quickening spirit” (I Cor. 15:45). Christ, as the second Adam, is a type of the first.
“For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive” (I Cor. 15:22).
“And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam…” (Jude 1:14-15). Genealogies in the Old Testament are extensive. When summarized in the New Testament, this validates the detailed renditions in the Old.
“So all the generations from Abraham to David are fourteen generations; and from David until the carrying away into Babylon are fourteen generations; and from the carrying away into Babylon unto Christ are fourteen generations” (Matt. 1:17).
“But He [Christ] said unto them, Have you not read what David did…” (Matt. 12:3).
“The Lord said unto My Lord, Sit You on My right hand, till I make Your enemies Your footstool? If David then call Him Lord, how is He his Son?” (Matt. 22:44-45).
“Joseph, you son of David, fear not to take unto you Mary your wife…” (Matt. 1:20).
“Take, my brethren, the prophets, who have spoken in the name of the Lord…You have heard of the patience of Job…” (Jms. 5:10-11).
This list is extensive enough that most would not dismiss it as analogy or metaphor. But the most telling passage is recorded in the gospel accounts. The Old Testament is clear that Jesus would have direct lineage from King David. The book of Luke records this in exacting detail, identifying Christ’s lineage all the way back to Adam!
Notice: “When He began His ministry, Jesus Himself was about thirty years of age, being, as was supposed, the son of Joseph, the son of Eli, the son of Matthat, the son of Levi…the son of Shem, the son of Noah, the son of Lamech, the son of Methuselah, the son of Enoch, the son of Jared, the son of Mahalaleel, the son of Cainan, the son of Enosh, the son of Seth, the son of Adam, the son of God” (Luke 3:23-38; NASB).
God did not inspire this to be recorded simply because it may be “interesting.” Jesus Christ’s lineage was extremely important!
It is ridiculous for one to believe that Jesus died for mankind’s sins, yet at the same time dismiss a passage validating Creation. Further, the implications of Christ’s lineage to Adam are critical. To have been the “second Adam” and heir to David’s throne (upon which Christ will sit at His Second Coming), Jesus’ lineage must be clear. Would Luke—inspired by God—make a mistake by incorrectly recording it? Was the Creator of the universe unable to ensure the accuracy of this passage?
While not related to the Creation account, there are many more New Testament scriptures pointing to Old Testament figures and events.
For instance, Christ compared the end of the modern age to “Noah’s day” (Luke 17:26) and to Sodom and Gomorrah (vs. 29). These verses alone prove two often contested Old Testament events. Either these events happened or Jesus Christ is a liar!
The New Testament also refers to the “preachers of righteousness.” The lives of these men spanned hundreds of years.
Further, Moses is referenced in the New Testament 79 times. Are you beginning to see why the New Testament is built on the prophets—and why evolution is incompatible with true Christianity?
Countless more examples could be given, and each serves to strengthen the others. However, we have already gone beyond the Creation event. Simply put, the New Testament without the Old Testament would be as useless as a building without a foundation—it would have no support, and much of it would not make sense.
If you profess to be Christian, yet somehow still have faith in evolution, examine your beliefs. Analyze why you believe what you do.
An important parallel exists between Adam and Christ that must be understood. It offers another clue to God’s purpose and the validity of the Creation account.
Further reading of I Corinthians 15 provides deeper insight to a comparison that Paul makes: “And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam [Christ] was made a quickening spirit. Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; and afterward [at the Resurrection] that which is spiritual. The first man [the original Adam] is of the earth, earthy: the second man [Christ] is the Lord from heaven. As is the earthy, such are they also that are earthy: and as is the heavenly, such are they also [by the resurrection] that are heavenly. And as we have borne the image of the earthy [made of flesh], we shall also bear the image of the heavenly [composed of spirit]” (vs. 45-49).
Paul’s inspired statement starts with a reference to Genesis 2:7. Notice the phrase there: “And so it was written…” Again, this is powerful New Testament verification of the Genesis account! Paul knew that Adam “was made” by God—that this event did happen. Paul believed and understood the Old Testament account.
God gave Adam and Eve “dominion” over the earth (Gen. 1:26). This meant man would need to learn and produce—to generate—much knowledge as he subjugated the planet.
God designed human beings with minds that could create, devise, observe and experiment. Through an inherent ability to reason, mankind is able to properly process and interpret physical knowledge when it is placed within the framework God intended.
All knowledge falls into two categories: (1) the physical knowledge of how to work with matter and physical things, and (2) the spiritual knowledge necessary for people to develop personal relationships with both God and their fellow man. All knowledge is either physical or spiritual.
Adam and Eve’s problem was in reasoning that both kinds of knowledge could be obtained on their own, through experimentation. Once they deviated from God’s intended way, they had no hope of reaching the destination He purposed for them—and neither does mankind, which followed Adam and Eve’s choice. When the first parents accepted the wrong premise as their starting point—that they could reason everything out themselves—they were destined to fail!
The accumulation of vast amounts of knowledge over millennia has not changed—and could never change—the fact that mankind is headed for the wrong destination. Curiously, in its quest for ever more knowledge, humanity continues to ignore facts regarding the fallacy of evolution. Many have been forced to conclude they must live life devoid of the most important knowledge—that about God!
Now that you have finished this series, something should have happened to your knowledge of evolution. You should now be able to prove what is true—not just assume it to be. The facts will deflect the clever arguments of evolutionists. Proof is the fundamental difference between creationism and evolution. God’s Word teaches us to, “Prove all things; hold fast that which is good” (I Thes. 5:21).
To prove something means to demonstrate it to be true or false. You have proven evolution false and, by the knowledge you have obtained, you are now able to debunk ridiculous assertions.
Evolution has gone from something “understood only by the scholarly” to an utterly illogical fallacy, believed only by the blind, foolish—and ignorant!
Does it not amaze you that evolution is taught as fact throughout most of the world, yet creation is ridiculed and lampooned as a simplistic and fanatical myth?
On the contrary, it is evolution that is simple—simply preposterous!
Consider. When you started this series, you unknowingly came to a fork in the road. As evolution was shown to be false, you began walking down a new path.
Throughout this series, you have learned new knowledge. It has been said that knowledge is of no purpose unless it is used.
In the Old Testament, the prophet Hosea summarized a problem in ancient Israel that parallels that of evolutionists today: “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because you have rejected knowledge, I will also reject you…seeing you have forgotten the law of your God, I will also forget your children” (Hos. 4:6).
Without doubt, what you have learned throughout this extensive series is knowledge, and much of it was probably completely new to you.
With such an understanding comes responsibility. You no longer “lack knowledge,” but are now left with the question of whether you will accept or reject it.
Notice Jesus Christ’s words: “For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required” (Luke 12:48).
With knowledge comes responsibility. This means choices must be made as a result of receiving it. You must now act on what you have learned.
Now we must ask: Who is the God you now know exists? What is the nature of the Being who created the universe, man, animals, plants—everything?
Some may have read this series assuming they already knew the answer to these questions. Their purpose was to gain knowledge in disproving evolution. But, like evolution, what most believe about God is not true.
Just as disproving the theory of evolution was only the first step toward understanding the origin of the universe and life within it, proving the existence of a Creator presents you with another path—that of who this God is. Taking this path will lead you to the understanding of why you were born.
Each of us has a specific purpose, unlike anything you have ever heard before. Learning that purpose—and your responsibility in it—lies down the new path that has been presented.
Only two questions remain:
(1) Will you act on the new knowledge you have received?
(2) Will you continue to study our publications, teaching you the truth about this God?
