The big bang theory, the theory of evolution and the biblical creation account

Understanding creation is fundamental to one's faith, when we understand our origins, we can better comprehend man's purpose, authority and future.


The Theory of Evolution

Tells us that man has evolved from lower life forms. Assuming that the beginnings of life originating from the seas, simple cell forms, progressing to fish, to birds, to animals and then to man.


The Big Bang Theory.

Tells us that the earth was formed by a cosmological event and is billions of years old.


The Creation Account, Genesis chapter 1

Looking at creation in a literal approach is the best way to view creation. For Without faith it is it is impossible to please him: ..., Hebrews 11:6. Faith cannot be analyzed or explained, if it could, it would not be faith.



Conclusion, Creation, the Big Bang theory, and Evolution

Both theories minimize and try to explain away the powers of a personal God, assuming that God was restricted to natural occurrences of nature. The Big Bang theory in the development of the earth and Evolution in the development of man. Nether theory takes into account the supernatural power of God's Word. And both theories infer that God is an impersonal God, who wound up the world and is simply watching it run, as opposed to a personal God who is there for us and is ever present in our lives. "I will never leave thee nor forsake thee", Hebrews 13:5. Both theories, (in part or whole), dilutes one's faith.

The Big Bang theory takes our focus off the Creator God, bringing the supernatural creation of the universe and galaxies into a natural happening, so that man can explain away the need for God and minimize His creation. It causes one's focus to be solely on physical events that can be explained through our logical reasoning, leaving no room for faith. For without faith it is impossible to please him: ..., Hebrews 11:6.

The theory of Evolution views man as one step above the animals. Scripture tells us that man is a moral being having a conscience and a free will, whereby animals do not have either of these abilities. Animals function off of instincts, (whereby man might have urges and desires, regardless of the outcome), his choice is always a willful decision. Man is much more than an animal, he is made in the image and likeness of God, Genesis 1:26 he has been called into a holy calling, 2nd Timothy 1:9 and he has God's Holy Spirit dwelling within him, 1st Corinthians 6:19

Final thoughts

The first defiance of man against God was the fall of man, recorded in Genesis Chapter 3. God allowed us to defy His command, proving that He has given to man a free will. If man was just another beast, in the animal kingdom, eating from the tree of good and evil would have had no consequences.

The great harm within the theory of Evolution is that: if man believes himself to be a descendant of the animal kingdom, he will then look to the animals for his purpose and behaviors, Rather than look towards God as our Father. Thus they exchanged their glory from God, for the likeness of an ox that eats grass ... and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man, and birds, and four-footed animals, and creeping things, Psalm 106:20 & Romans 1:23.
