The belief Jehovah created the universe out of nothing, and the modern idea of evolution, are the only two explanations for the existence of all things (yes, no). No

Creation and evolution are (diametrical opposites; mutually acceptable; mutually exclusive; contradictory).

Evolution has been (thoroughly proven; thoroughly accepted by academia; made to agree with the Bible, proven to be false). Accepted, but not proven to be true

If evolution is ever proven to be true then (God is a liar; God does not exist; the Bible cannot be trusted; man’s hatred of God will have been proven to be true). All of these

This a moot thought because (God is always true; the Bible can be trusted; the natural man’s hatred of things spiritual is obvious; evolution will never be proven). All of these

Do, or have, evolutionists ever said that all of today’s notable scientist believe in evolution? They have

Is this true?

Can the declarations of men who knowingly make false statements, be trusted?

Can the statements of the ardent evolutionist be fully trusted?

Biblical creation.

Biblical creation is (one explanation for the universe; the only kind of “creation;” a product of the imagination of Moses; a deception created by God). There are other varieties of “creation.”

Statements about Biblical creation can be found (only in Genesis; only in the Pentateuch; only in the Old Testament; only in the Bible). It can be seen in natural science as well as all over the Bible

Which of the following Old Testament men does not refer in some fashion to God’s creation of the universe (Moses; Nehemiah; Job; the Psalmist). They all do

Which of the following New Testament men does not refer in some fashion to God’s creation of the universe (Paul; John; Christ; Matthew). They all do

When Christ said, “Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female,” He was (repeating Jewish fables; speaking of Himself; testifying for Genesis’ account of creation; deceiving the foolish). Authenticating the Genesis account & speaking of Himself

If God didn’t create the first human couple, then (Christ is a liar; Christianity falls apart at the seems; our faith is vain; we better extend our lives for as long as we can because there is nothing beyond the grave).

In the beginning (there was nothing; there was the triune God; God created the heaven and the earth; the primordial ooze started to bubble).

“The beginning” was the beginning in the sense of (time; matter; God; creation). Time, matter, creation

The word “beginning” in Gen. 1:1 is also translated (the start; go; from nothing; first fruit). Fruit – 11x

On the first day of creation God created (Himself; Adam; light; time). Light

That was important because He would use it to (see what He was doing; feed the plants; regulate time; warm the reptiles).

“And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the __________ from the ________________. And God called the _______________ Day, and the darkness he called _______________. And the evening and the morning were the first _________________.”

“Night” and “day” suggest that the Hebrew word “yom” refers to (eons; millions and millions; multiplied billions; a day as we think of one today). A 24 hour day

Place the following in their proper order: _____ separation of the heavens from the earth; _____ stars; _____ animals; _____ fish; _____ plants; _____ mankind.

On what day (of creation; of time; of year; of the week) did God create the first man? The sixth day

Generally speaking evolution says that the first man appeared (gradually; on the 6th day; after billions of years; in Africa).

Are evolutionists agreed about who or what was the first man?

Are evolutionists agreed about everything? Anything?

While there is debate among evolutionists, their process started with (energy; ooze; an explosion; god).

Does the average evolutionist believe that at some point in the past there was absolutely nothing? No

For most of them, either matter or energy must be (god-like; eternal; temporal; short-lived). Eternal

Which takes more faith that (God is eternal and created all things; energy and matter are eternal and worked together in such a way as to produce life)?

Just prior to the Noaic flood, “the LORD said, I will _________________ man whom I have ______________ from the face of the earth; both _____________, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them.”

Nehemiah prayed, Thou, even thou, art ____________ alone; thou hast ___________ heaven, the heaven of heavens, with all their host, the earth, and all things that are therein, the seas, and all that is therein, and thou __________________ them all; and the host of heaven _________________ thee.”

Though Isaiah, “thus saith God the LORD, he that _________________ the heavens, and _____________ them out; he that spread forth the _______________, and that which cometh out of it; he that giveth breath unto the ________________ upon it, and spirit to them that walk therein.”

“Thus saith the Lord, the Holy One of Israel, and his ______________ – I have made the ____________, and __________________ man upon it: I, even my hands, have _________________ out the heavens, and all their host have I ____________________.”

“For thus saith the LORD that __________________ the heavens; God himself that formed the earth and ______________; he hath established it, he ___________________ it not in vain, he formed it to be inhabited: I am _____________ ____________, and there is none else.”

Speaking about the Tribulation Christ said, “For in those days shall be affliction, such as was not from the _________________ of the _________________ which God created unto this time, neither shall be.”

“For by (Christ) were all things ______________, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were ____________ by him, and ___________ him.”

“_______________ who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed __________ of all things, by whom also he ______________ the worlds.”

“Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive ________________ and __________________ and power: for thou hast ____________________ all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were _________________.”

Important implications from the evolution/creation debate.

Immediately related to the creation of Adam was (the creation of Eve; beef barbecue; death; sin). Death sin

If the Bible story of creation cannot be trusted, can the account of the fall of man be trusted?

Can the wickedness of society be adequately explained by evolution?

Deliverance from sin & the effects of the fall come through (evolution; education; the Saviour; the gospel).

If it were not for the gospel, Christianity would be (just another religion; pointless; useless; baseless).

Has common acceptance of evolution over the last hundred plus years, improved the human condition?

If evolution is true, we should not be surprised when (people behave like animals; murder escalates; jurisprudence collapses; righteousness prevails). Not righteousness

If evolution is true, we should not be surprised when murderers are released after citing (DNA problems; ancestral problems; human weakness; societal failure).

The Bible says that the Creator of the universe is the Creator (of earth; of life; of Hell; of Heaven). All

If the Biblical account of creation is not accurate (the Bible is not accurate; Christ would be a liar; the gospel would not be good news; Heaven would be a myth).

If the Biblical account of creation is false, then when we die (we will be dead; everyone will go to Heaven; everyone will go to Hell; it would rob every mourner of any joy).

Evolution stabs at the heart of (logic; Christianity; man; God).
