Christ’s resurrection is all the proof we need of a literal, 6-day Creation


Christ’s selfless act on the Cross to abolish sin and death is all the proof we need of a literal, 6-day Creation. His resurrection to defeat death affirms God’s account of Creation as it is written in Genesis 1.

There’s no stronger argument to be made.

The evolution of animals into man requires bloodshed and death to be successful but God says there was no death before Adam [Romans 5:12; 1 Corinthians 15:21-22]. Death, both physical and spiritual, is the consequence of Adam’s sin against God [Genesis 3:19]. To say that death existed before Adam is to say that death is not the consequence of Adam’s sin. Believing in death before Adam removes our responsibility for our sin, calls God a liar and renders Him useless because Christ’s sacrifice becomes vain.

“Therefore, just as through one man sin entered into the world, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men, because all sinned–“

[Romans 5:12 NASB]

“For since by a man came death, by a man also came the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ all will be made alive.”

[1 Corinthians 15:21-22 NASB]

And this man, Adam, was around from the beginning. How else could Paul say this?

“For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse.”

[Romans 1:20 NASB]

Seen and understood since the Creation of the world by whom? Man (Adam) who was present from the beginning.

Human evolutionary theory is a direct assault on the deity of Christ.

I would encourage any Christian who is considering human evolutionary theory as valid to please TH!NK about the Cross and meditate on the Gospel. The reality that before Adam’s sin there was no death is a necessary part of the Gospel that cannot be removed.

If we can’t believe God about Creation, why should we ever have reason to believe Him about Salvation?
