29A Creation: A Major Problem

“But here’s a major problem. As soon as one believes in millions of years, then you have allowed death, bloodshed, and disease (as exhibited in the fossil record) to exist before Adam sinned”(p.72).

“The Bible makes very clear that death, bloodshed, disease, and suffering are a consequence of sin and the Curse” (Gospel Reset by Ken Ham, p.74

28A Creation: False-Teaching Churches

“And in many churches they often hear, ‘You can believe all that you’re taught at school about evolution and millions of years, but trust in Jesus anyway!’ Most of the Church leaders have taken the supposed millions of years and basically said, ‘We’ll fit these millions of years into the Bible in the ‘days’ of creation, or in a gap between the first two verses, or in some way fit it into the Bible before the creation of man” (Gospel Reset by Ken Ham, p.71-72).

27A Creation: 7 Cs in God’s Eternal Plan

“In the beginning—in six 24-hour days—God made a perfect Creation. The first man, Adam disobeyed the Creator. His sin brought death and Corruption into Creation.  Adam’s race became so wicked that God judged the world with a great Catastrophe—the global flood—saving only those on the Ark built by Noah.  When Noah’s descendants disobeyed God’s command to fill the earth, God brought Confusion on their language causing them to spread over the earth.  The Creator became a man, Jesus Christ, who obeyed God in everything, unlike the first man, Adam.  Jesus, the Messiah, died on a Cross to pay the penalty for mankind’s sin against God. He rose from the dead, providing eternal life for all who trust in Him.  In the Consummation, God will create a new heavens and a new earth. He will destroy death and cast out the disobedient and dwell eternally with those who trust in Him

26A Creation: Greeks Teaching Greeks

“Most students attend public (state-run) schools where teachers and their textbooks teach apologetics to defend evolution, millions of years, and naturalism (atheism). By and large, at many churches these students are taught what are called Bible ‘stories,’ instead of teaching them the Bible as factual history. But at public (state) school (and sadly many so-called Christian/church schools), they hear something like this: ‘Here are the reasons the Bible’s account in Genesis is not true. Here is the evidence for evolution. This is the evidence for millions of years” (Gospel Reset by Ken Ham, p.71).

Consummation: The Fulfillment of God’s Word.
In the consummation, God will create a new heaven and a new earth. He will destroy death and cast out the disobedient and dwell eternally with those who trust in Him.
“Death and hell were cast into the lake of fire…and I saw a new heaven and a new earth” Revelation 20:14, 21:1.

25A Creation: Biblical Truth

“Because the Greeks were an evolution-based culture that had no understanding of biblical truth or terms like God, sin, etc., the message of the gospel was foolishness to them” (p.65).

“Paul would later write that the preaching of the Cross was a stumbling block to the Jews but foolishness to the Greek (1 Corinthians 1:23). …They did not understand the sacrificial system god instituted in Genesis 3:21 (the first blood sacrifice as a covering for their sin, a picture of what was to come in Jesus Christ the lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world). (Gospel Reset by Ken Ham, p.62).

Cross: The Answer of God’s Word.
The penalty for mankind’s disobedience was death. Jesus the Messiah, died on a Cross to pay that penalty. He rose from the dead providing eternal life for all who trust in Him.
“Christ has once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust” 1 Peter 3:18.

24A Creation: More Than Mere Science

“Evolution is promoted by its practitioners as more than mere science. Evolution is promulgated as an ideology, a secular religion—a full-fledged alternative to Christianity, with meaning and morality. … Evolution is a religion. This was true of evolution at the beginning, and it is true of evolution still today “ (A quote of Michael Ruse in Gospel Reset by Ken Ham, p.65).

Christ: The Promise of God’s Word.
The Creator became a man, our relative—a member of the human race. He name was Jesus of Nazareth, who obeyed God in everything, unlike the first man, Adam.
“When the fullness of time was come, God sent forth His son, made of a woman” Galatians 4:4

23A Creation: Atheistic Evolution Religion

“Almost all atheistic evolutionists claim that because (supposedly) there is no God, their own worldview is not a religion. Many of them would argue that they have a “nonbelief.” …Atheists have an active belief system with views concerning origins (molecules to man evolution—that the universe and life arose by natural processes): no life after death; denies the existence of God; how to behave while alive; and so much more.  Honest atheists will admit their worldview is a faith. Atheistic evolution is a religion! (Gospel Reset by Ken Ham, p.63-64).

22A Creation: Noah and Ark

“Sadly, most churches today are not teaching their young people how to defend their faith. They don’t understand the true history recorded in Scripture that is foundational to all doctrines and the gospel. Most church are not teaching apologetics (how to answer the skeptical questions of this age). Because of this, so many kids are growing up doubting, not defending the Bible as the infallible Word of God.  The research Answers in Genesis had conducted by America’s Research Group clearly showed that questions about creation, evolution, age of earth, dinosaurs, Noah’s Ark, the Flood, Garden of Eden, etc., were a major cause of why so many young people were leaving the Church by the time they reached college age. Their churches weren’t teaching apologetics to equip them with answers. Instead, someone else was teaching them apologetics—but false apologetics” (Gospel Reset by Ken Ham, p.70-71).

21A Creation: Dinosaurs

“Land animals (which includes dinosaurs) and man were made on day 6 of the creation week. So we lived at the same time” (A Flood of Evidence, p.157)

“So why did dinosaurs die out?  The simple answer is sin.  When Adam and Eve sinned (Gen 3) death came into the world… Some specific reasons for their extinction likely include environments (e.g. the ice age that followed the Flood, the destruction of swamp lands by man, and so on), predation by man (cf. Genesis 10:9), diseases, genetic problems, catastrophic events, etc” (The New Answers Book 4, p.42)

20A Creation: Zonkeys

“Zonkeys (from a male zebra bred with a female donkey) zorses (male zebra and female horse), and heras (male horse and female zebra) are all examples of hybrid animals.  …donkeys, zebras, and horses all belong to the horse kind…

After the flood natural selection, mutation, and other mechanisms allowed speciation within the kinds to occur…  This is especially well illustrated in the dog kind in which current members (e.g. coyotes, dingoes, and domestic dogs) are confirmed to be descended from an ancestral type of wolf” (The New Answers, Book 3 by Ken Ham, p.40-41).

“All of these animals’ ancestors that we have discussed above—horses, donkey, zebras, tigers, lions, whales, and dolphins—were created with genetic diversity within their various kinds (or by the older definition species). Through time, the processes of natural selection, mutation, and other mechanisms have altered that original information (decreased or degenerated) to give us even more various within a kind…. Great variety can be observed in the offspring of animal of the same kind, just as the same cake recipe can be used to make many different cakes with various flavors and colors…. What an amazing diversity of life God has created for us to enjoy!” (The New Answers, Book 3 by Ken Ham, p.46).
