Creation in the 21st Century
There has been an ongoing secular debate as to whether mankind evolved from an ape or was created by God.
There is a Christian scientific ministry that focuses on various scientific topics with expert scientists in various fields. Recently, the topic of evolution versus creation was covered on one of their weekly broadcasts.
Basically, it comes down to this. If there was no Adam who sinned, then there was no need for the Saviour, Jesus.
The Catholic Church understands this very well. They discuss the first Adam who fell, and the Second Adam, who is Jesus, the Redeemer, the Saviour of the world.
Not every denomination explains this as well. Some have not thought this through as well. Some denominations seem to feel that evolution and creation can co-exist. But they cannot.
Athiests have thought this through. They recognize that if there is an evolutionary model then there is no need of a Saviour.
The bottom line is this. You have to have a Second Adam if you have a first Adam. If there is no first Adam, but only an ape, then you don’t need a Second Adam.
The Lord God immediately prophesied a Second Adam after the Fall.
Genesis 3:15 will put hostility between you and the woman,
and between your offspring and her offspring.
He will bruise your head,
and you will bruise his heel.”
If you try to bring in an evolutionary model, that model has no indication of temptation of the serpent to Eve and Adam, the fall of mankind, and the necessity for Jesus to redeem mankind from the Fall.
Here is a short video on creation vs evolution.
