The Tremendous Battle Over Creationism
Updated: Feb 9
Notes compiled by Marty Zide and Steve McAtee
The reason why there is such a major battle over God being the creator of the universe is that what creating the universe has the ability to prove. Creation has the ability to manifest many of God’s wonderful characteristics and attributes. If you take the creation act away from God and assign it to evolution, where there doesn’t even need to be a God, you take away the opportunity of seeing God in all His power and majesty.
Ps 19:1-2 - The heavens are telling of the glory of God; And their expanse is declaring the work of His hands. Day to day pours forth speech, And night to night reveals knowledge.
Ps 104:24 - O LORD, how many are Your works! In wisdom You have made them all; The earth is full of Your possessions.
Is 40:26 - Lift up your eyes on high And see who has created these stars, The One who leads forth their host by number, He calls them all by name; Because of the greatness of His might and the strength of His power, Not one of them is missing.
Rom 1:20 - 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.
The universe and all that is in it did not come to be as a result of random chance, but it came to be as the result of the Almighty God. Removing God from the picture doesn’t do away with the truth of what the Word of God clearly teaches. If you deny God as creator, you may as well throw out the whole Bible. How could you trust it in all that it says about salvation, eternal life, and Jesus, etc? It is not a minor flaw to deny the Biblical account of creation. If it is not true as stated in the Scriptures, then God has lied to us and can’t be trusted in anything He has said.
