Does it truly matter whether or not a Christian believes in creationism or evolution? Is it necessary to be a Christian to affirm that everything in the world was created within six literal days? Colin Garner argues that without a correct view of the early chapters of Genesis many crucial elements of the faith do not line up logically or theologically. Without these elements understood properly, the faith of the Christian who accedes to evolution may be a pale reflection of what it should be. Join Professor Garner as he uncovers the basic differences between these competing worldviews and why it is of primary importance what one believes concerning universal and human origins.
This book seeks to help awaken the church to accept the biblical account in Genesis, not out of sentiment, or by becoming unscientific, but because it is scientific and does explain the world as we see it in an entirely consistent way. It shows that only biblical creation makes any sense of Original Sin, Death, The Fall, and the Atoning Sacrifice of Jesus. As you will find out, it profoundly affects the way we can reach out to people in our evangelism. Why is the creation/evolution issue so important? And hasn't science disproved the biblical creation account anyway? The world's evolutionary view permeates virtually all society and secular science, and many people, even Christians, hold an evolutionary view almost by default. They reject the biblical creation account in Genesis as fact.
In this booklet Colin Garner demonstrates that, as well as being inconsistent with biblical truth, evolutionary theory has serious fundamental scientific weaknesses. He highlights the reasons why Genesis, the first book of the Bible, is of such foundational importance to life today, in the hope that it will encourage us all to base our beliefs, our evangelism and our hopes on the whole Bible, including its vital foundational teaching on creation.
