Creation or Evolution?

Posted by Yong Joo Park on 1 March 2020 in Creation, Genesis, Hebrews, Timothy |

How did we come to exist? This is the primary question of philosophy. But philosophy does not give us correct answer but leaves a question mark in the end. The origin is a matter of belief (faith). What you believe does matter. What is your belief on our origin? Let us study about two beliefs in the world and choose a right one today.

There are largely two different beliefs in the world. One is theism and the other is atheism. Theism is a belief that there is God. Atheism is a belief that there is no God.

Theism explains the origin of humans with creation. Atheism explains this with evolution.

Let us start with evolution. First of all, evolution is a hypothesis. And evolutionists are believers on this hypothesis.

Evolutionists believe we were evolved from one cell animal, called Amoeba.

Then we have a question to ask, “how did Amoeba come to exist?” Evolutionists explain that Amoeba was spontaneously formed from chemical reactions between elements like H (Hydrogen), O (Oxygen), and C (Carbon), ignited by the lightnings.

Amoeba has one cell but if we examine the cell, its cell contains three major macromolecules that are essential for all forms of life. They are RNA, DNA, and proteins. As the science learns more things, it realizes RNA is more complicated than any machinery that humans ever developed. So ‘spontaneous formation of life’ became harder to believe. In addition, evolution does not explain where elements like H, O, and C are from.

Even though evolutionists cannot convince spontaneous formation of Amoeba, they insist Amoeba evolved into advanced animals by mutation. Mutation is a permanent change in the DNS sequence of a gene. But during mutation, DNA keeps or loses the existing genetic information but never add new genetic information. Without adding new genetic information into DNA, evolution is not possible. Evolutionists ask us to believe ‘evolution by mutation’ is happening all around us, but this is clearly false. ‘Evolution from Amoebas to humans’ simply cannot work.

Also if evolution were correct, we should have found fossils of intermediate species between two different species to show evolution process. But scientists could not find such fossils, which are called missing links.

So evolution is a theory and the theory in crisis.

Modern science supports creation more than evolution.

Based on evolution and atheism, we cannot understand the preciousness of our life and it cannot explain why we have righteous mind and love and what is the purpose of life.

Instead, it leads us into wrong principles like the money almighty principle, the success almighty principle, communism, hedonism, nihilism, and debauchery.

Then, now, let us discuss about how creation explains this.

We can find the answer from the Holy Bible. The Holy Bible consists of 66 books. These books are written by many people of different backgrounds and times but the theme of each book is one, that is, the Messiah (Saviour), Jesus Christ.
Therefore the author of these 66 books is God who wrote each book through different people (writers), inspired by the Holy Spirit.
Genesis, the first book of the Holy Bible, declares God’s creation of the universe.

This book is called “Gate of the Holy Bible”. It is because we can understand the other books of the Holy Bible through this book. As we can enter a house through the gate, we can enter to the world of the Holy Bible through Genesis.

Genesis is also called the book of beginnings. Genesis lets us know the beginnings of the universe, creatures, marriage, sin, and many other beginnings.

See Genesis 1:1.

“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.”

Here, “In the beginning” means the starting point of time and space, beginning point of creation. “God” is Elohim in Hebrew. Elohim is the plural form of Eloah, which means Almighty God. The fact that God was expressed in the plural form is the basis of the Trinity. God is Triune God, existing as three persons (the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit) in one being. “created” is ‘bara’ in Hebrew, which means creating something from nothing. “bara” can be used to describe the unique activity of God only.  It is distinguished from human activities like ‘design’ or ‘build’. “the heavens” is in the plural form and means the whole universe. “the earth” is in the singular form and means the earth where we are living.

So, the Holy Bible declares that

  1. There is God.
  2. God is almighty.
  3. God created the whole universe in the beginning (indicating that God has ownership & control, and everything in the universe has its purpose in God).

Genesis 1:3 reads

“And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light.”

Here, we can learn God’s word has the power of creation. God’s invisible word created the visible world. Shortly, the word created the world. The invisible created the visible.

Hebrews 11:3b says,

What is seen was NOT made out of what was visible.

Then, what made this visible universe? Hebrews 11:3a says,

By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God’s command.

 Here ‘faith’ is defined in Hebrews 11:1.

Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.

Genesis was written by God through Moses nearly 5,500 years ago. There was no science or evolution theory. But Genesis chapter 1 tell the truth of creation against evolution by repeatedly saying “(God created…) according to their kinds” 9 times in Genesis 1:11, 12, 21, 24, 25. So we can understand the diversity of each species is not by accident but by the plan, purpose, and design of God.

Genesis 1:27 Says

“So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.”

So, we can understand why we have the image of God that makes us righteousness and love oriented.

Q & A

Q: Where does ‘faith’ come from?

A: See Romans 10:17

17Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word of Christ.

Q: Where can we read the word of Christ?

A: All Scripture is God-breathed as written in 2 Timothy 3:15-17.

15and how from infancy you have known the holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. 16All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, 17so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.
