If the first three chapters of Genesis fall, so falls our faith. That's the hypothesis that prompted John MacArthur to write The Battle for the Beginning. If the religion of naturalism, with its dogma of evolution, is true, then, MacArthur asserts, all essential Christian doctrine is false.
MacArthur has drawn a line in the sand and calls all Christians to join him in defending the truth against the assault of naturalism and evolution. He feels that all of the essential doctrines of Christianity have their roots in the historicity of Adam and Eve as actual people, and in the historicity of the Fall. Therefore, Christians must stand firm against the advancing popularity of evolutionary thinking. MacArthur urges all Christians to affirm with him was Jesus affirmed:
God created Adam and Eve and they chose to disobey Him.
This stand for truth will have a strong impact on the culture around us as well. MacArthur feels that the decline of morals and values in Western society can be traced to the lack of purpose inherent in a worldview governed by chance. This is the world that Darwinism and naturalism offer us. By choosing the truth, by choosing to believe God as creator and Adam and Eve has historical, we can begin to infuse morals and values back into our society. So join with MacArthur and take a stand for truth. "In the beginning..."
The battle lines have been drawn. Is the enemy winning?
"Thanks to the theory of evolution," writes best-selling author John MacArthur, "naturalism is now the dominant religion of modern society. Less than a century and a half ago, Charles Darwin popularized the credo for this secular religion. Naturalism has now replaced Christianity as the main religion of the Western world, and evolution has become its principal dogma."
Many Christians who claim to believe that the Bible is God's revealed truth seem willing to allow modern scientific theories to replace the Genesis account of creation. Such compromises present a conspicuous danger. Bible teacher and pastor, John MacArthur, believes that in Genesis 1-3 we find the foundation of every doctrine that is essential to the Christian faith?the vital underpinnings for everything we believe.
The Battle for the Beginning draws a clear line on today's theological landscape. "Everything in Scripture that teaches about sin and redemption assumes the literal truth of the first three chapters of Genesis. If we wobble to any degree on the truth of this passage," John MacArthur insists, "we undermind the very foundations of our faith."
