Why Does the Genesis Account of Creation Matter?

 Share

Today, Janice D. Green is our guest blogger. Janice recently wrote a children’s book on creation called THE CREATION. Leave a comment on this blog post for a chance to win a free copy.

What difference does it make if God created the earth or not? Why should we care?

A man named Charles Darwin published his theory of evolution in 1859, and scientists began to buy into his theory so that today it is taught as fact in many schools. People who bought into this theory were emboldened by it to believe and convince others that there is no God, and that the Genesis account of creation is simply the accumulation of fireside tales.

I would like to challenge these people’s thinking. There is too much logic and scientific thought embedded in the Genesis account to believe that cave men sat around campfires and thought it up. Even up to the day of Columbus people thought the world was flat and the sun moved around the earth.

Let us consider the sequence of the Genesis account:

Pre-day 1: God created the heavens and the earth. Though it was without form it included the waters and the substance that became the land. (I have separated this from the first day only to emphasize an often overlooked part of creation. In the Jewish tradition a day begins at sundown making this a part of the first day.)

Day 1: God created light and defined it as day. He separated the light from the darkness and called the darkness night. This marks the beginning of measurable time as we know it.

Day 2: God separated the waters and made our sky (atmosphere). All life must breathe and must have water.

Day 3: God brought the land up out of the waters and created vegetation with seeds. Only plants can create energy from light, water, and minerals from the soil. Plants are the most basic ingredient in the food chain. Without them animals could not exist.

Day 4: God created the sun, moon and heavenly bodies. This is essential to the creation of seasons that are necessary for maintaining the plants. People tolerate and/or enjoy seasons, but plants are dependent on them.

Day 5: God created the birds and the sea creatures.

Day 6: God created the animals that live on land. When everything else was ready, God created people. They were the most highly developed of all, and God created them in his own image.

Day 7: Then God rested for one day setting an example for us to follow.

Consider the beauty and the intricate design that we see in all of nature. From the grandest planets, mountains, and sunsets to the tiniest flower, butterfly wing, and grain of pollen under a microscope there is beauty and order that defies the idea that it all happened by chance. Romans 1:20 tells us, “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 men are without excuse.” (NIV)

Scientists have not disproved God. To do that they would have had to have gone to everyplace that exists with instruments capable of detecting him. Scientists can only declare what they do not know about God.

When God placed Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden he gave them the opportunity to choose to follow his plan or to go their own way. They chose the path of disobedience. We are given the same chance. To choose to believe in the Creator or to live in rebellion going our own way.

If we choose to acknowledge that we are made in God’s image, we will value ourselves and serve God and mankind. If we believe we are accidents with no plan, we see ourselves as animals with limited value for ourselves or others.

All eternal matters boil down to choices we make based on our relationship to the One True Living God.

3 FREE Giveaways – The Almighty Bible

Share

Post a comment by next Monday,  May 16, 2011 to enter a contest. We will draw 3 names to win a copy of THE ALMIGHTY BIBLE “Exodus: A Biblically Accurate Graphic Novel”.

The Almighty Bible

Biblically Accurate:

The Almighty Bible is edited down from the World English Bible translation, that is itself based on the 1904 American Standard Translation. The chapters and verses that are the source for each page are listed on each page of the book and the full text is a simple two-fingered tap away on the iPAD version. The Almighty Bible is produced under the direction of Kevin O’Donnell who has 25 years of experience with high level children’s projects, including Liberty’s Kids on PBS (which he created and co-produced) – The Adventures of Hyperman (on CBS – which he co-created and produced) and interactive games for companies like Lucas Arts, IBM and Sundance.
 
Professor Tremper Longman III, PhD (Yale) writes forewords for the books and helps bring his insight to the project as the team attempts to be as historically accurate as possible, in terms of dress and technologies of the times. The Almighty Bible is created in a manner that maintains the drama and excitement of these amazing books but is also respectable of family norms and values when it comes to the nature of the images. Pastor Charles Kim heads a multi-denominational Advisory committee that is designed to keep The Almighty Bible on track for years to come.
 
Endorsements:

“I’ve seen The Almighty Bible on the iPad, and it is SO COOL! I’ve never seen anything quite like it. Makes me want to buy an iPad just for that.”

– Mark Oestreicher, speaker, author, consultant and former president of Youth Specialties

 “…The Almighty Bible presents a compelling narrative for a younger generation. The visuals are intriguing and enhance the written story. I look forward to the next ones, especially on my iPad.”

– Ralph Winter, producer of the X-Men, Fantastic Four and Star Trek series

“For a generation that has grown up on images, The Almighty Bible is an outstanding tool to introduce young people to Scripture. It’s faithfulness to the text and  outstanding, vivid graphics, make it an engaging, kid-friendly doorway into God’s story. The Almighty Bible is a great tool for your students who say, ‘I’ll believe when I see it’.”

– Duffy Robbins, Chairman of the Department of Youth Ministry at Eastern College, St. Davids, Pennsylvania,  

“This Bible is exactly what will draw kids toward reading God’s Word. The art is God-honoring, edgy, and inviting to a young person. The result will be more kids placing the Word of God into their minds and hearts. I highly recommend this amazing resource that relates perfectly to this generation.”

– Jim Burns, PhD, President, HomeWord

My Review: ♥  ♥  ♥  ♥  ♥

This is one of the best Bible story books I’ve seen. It includes all of the major Bible stories and although it’s easy to read for little ones, it covers the stories with a depth that helps children learn from them. The bright hard cover and thick paper pages also make it child friendly. I highly recommend it.
