Defending God's Truth

7. A False View of Origins

The Bible says:

3 “Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts,

4 And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.

5 For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water:

6 Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished:

7 But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.”

2 Peter 3:3-7

These last days scoffers will scoff at 3 things:

1. Original Creation

2. The Great Flood

3. The Coming Judgment

Whatever God is, has, or does, Satan wants to counterfeit it.


The evolutionists’ belief system is based upon 3 basic principles:

(1) The Big Bang

(2) Organic evolution

(3) The Fossil Record

1. The Truth - The Origin of the Universe:

God’s Word says God spoke the universe into existence from a state of nothingness.

Satan's Lie:

A state of nothingness exploded and created everything. (The Big Bang)

2. The Truth - The Origin of Life:

God created all the different classifications of life (kinds) in six literal 24-hour days.

Satan's Lie:

Life started in shallow oceans as complex chemicals, and slowly over billions of years evolved into all the kinds of life we observe today.

In God’s Word He said He spoke the different “kinds” into existence, and they would only reproduce “after his kind.” Satan has them believing all life forms came from a “different kind.” Roses from “non-roses;” apples from “non-apples; dogs from “non-dogs;” humans from “non-humans” etc. One day, if we wait long enough, they will all produce an even “different kind.” The complete opposite as God said in His Word.

3. The Truth - The Origin of the Fossil Record:

About 4400 years ago God sent a Great Flood. The rock layers and fossils are evidences of that.

Satan's Lie:

All the rock layers and fossils were formed slowly over hundreds of millions of years and are a record of evolution from one classification to the next.

3. “But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:

4. In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.”

2 Corinthians 4:3-4
