Creation and Evolution

What does the Bible teach us about creation? God is the Creator. It's in the Bible, Genesis 1:1, NIV. “In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.”

Many will cast doubt upon the idea of a Creator. It’s in the Bible, 2 Peter 3:3-5, NIV. “Above all, you must understand that in the last days scoffers will come, scoffing and following their own evil desires. They will say, ‘Where is this “coming” He promised? Ever since our ancestors died, everything goes on as it has since the beginning of creation.’ But they deliberately forget that long ago by God’s word the heavens came into being and the earth was formed out of water and by water.”

Many will hide the truth that God created the Earth. It’s in the Bible, Romans 1:18-20, NIV. “The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people, who suppress the truth by their wickedness, since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.”

God reveals Himself through creation. It's in the Bible. Psalm 19:1, NIV. “The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of His hands.”

God spoke the world into existence. It's in the Bible, Psalm 33:6,9, NIV. “By the word of the Lord were the heavens made, their starry host by the breath of His mouth. For He spoke, and it came to be; He commanded, and it stood firm.”

God created the world in six literal days. It's in the Bible, Exodus 20:11, NIV. “For in six days the Lord made the heaven and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, but He rested the seventh-day. Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy.”

Through whom did God create all things? It's in the Bible, Colossians 1:16, NIV. “For by Him [the Son] all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things were created by Him and for Him.” John 1:3, NIV. “Through Him, all things were made; without Him, nothing was made that has been made.”

What was God's object in making the earth? It's in the Bible, Isaiah 45:18, NIV. “For this is what the Lord says—He who created the heavens, He is God; He who fashioned and made the earth, He founded it; He did not create it to be empty, but formed it to be inhabited—He says: ‘I am the Lord, and there is no other.’”
