Webmaster's note: This is one of the Bible classes given by a teacher in the very early days of the Children of God. A real oldie goldie! Enjoy!
Before we get into the Bible verses that prove evolution is a falsehood, let us look at the overall picture.
Evolution teaches that man has been rising all the time, therefore he never fell, therefore he doesn't need a Savior. But, Genesis 3 teaches that man fell right at the beginning and God promised him a Savior (Genesis 3:15) which came (Colosians 1:14).
If you believe the Bible is God's Word you cannot believe evolution, or that God used evolution to bring life about. If one rejects the story of the fall of Adam and Eve ad the temptation by the devil and the promises of a Messiah, he also must reject the following New Testament scripture:
John 8:44 - Ye are of your father the devil--he is a liar and the father of lies.
Revelation 12:9 That old Serpent called the Devil and Satan.
II Corinthians 11:3 - As the Serpent beguiled Eve through his subtlety.
I Timothy 2:13&14 - Adam was first formed then Eve, the woman being deceived was in the transgression.
Romans 5:12 - As by one man sin entered the world.
Romans 5:14 - Adam's transgression.
I Corinthians 15:22 - For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.
We must agree with the wisest man, Solomon, that, "God hath made man upright, but they they have sought out many inventions." Ecclesiastes 7,:29.
"Evolution or Creation"
The six days of creation (Genesis 1) are days (24 hour).
"Evening and morning" were used after every one of the six days (Also Daniel 8:26) The 4th day is especially significant. Moon and sun to rule night and day to divide the light from the darkness. (Psalm 148:3-5) Who is to say that night and day was any longer then than now? Exodus 20:11 says - "In 6 days the Lord made heaven and earth, sea and all therein." and compares those 6 DAYS with the 6 DAYS men work in V9.
The creation of all the vegetation on the 3rd day means the 4th day had to follow very quickly (24 hours) because the sun was made on the day and supports all plant life. Six days is not enough time for evolution of earth and man.
The genealogies show that the earth is only about 6100 years old: Genesis 5; 7:6; 11:10-26; 21:5; 25:26; 47:9; Exodus 12:40; I Kings 6:l.
Instantaneous Creation of the Earth and Heaven
Hebrews 1:3 - The worlds were framed BY THE WORD OF GOD from things that are not seen.
Genesis 1:1-5 In the beginning God CREATED the heaven and the earth---The evening and the morning were the FIRST DAY.
Psalm 148:1-5 - Let the angels, hosts, sun, moon, starry heaven, and waters above the heavens praise the Lord. "For he COMMANDED, and they were CREATED."
Psalm 33:6&9 - By the WORD of the Lord were the heavens made---He spake and it was DONE!!
Instantaneous Creation of Man and Woman
Genesis 2:7 - "The Lord framed man of the dust of the ground and then breathed into his nostrils" (At this point of the verse we have a fully formed human body complete with nostrils but as yet it is not alive. This is what came before the first LIVING man, NOT AN APE. Then the breath .of life (from God Revelation 11:11) entered into the lifeless body and it (man) became a living soul. A living animal did not become the first living man; but a lifeless, fully formed human body became the first living man. Genesis 2:7.
I Corinthians 15:45 - Adam the FIRST MAN.
Genesis 2:23 - "Adam said she is bone of my bone, and flesh of my flesh." Genesis 2:23. "She was taken out of man."
I Corinthiana11:8 - "The woman is of the man" Eve was the body of Adam and the bride of Adam. The church is the body of Christ (I Corinthians 12:27) and the bride of Christ (Ephesians 5:23 and Revelation 19:7).
Genesis 2:21-23 - The first woman came out of a man, not from an animals.
Instantaneous Creation of Plants and Herbs
Genesis 2:5 - "The Lord made EVERY PLANT of the field BEFORE it was it the earth." And EVERY HERB of the field BEFORE IT GREW: This means ALL the different KINDS of plants and herbs were fully created with leaves and branches and roots BEFORE they grew and BEFORE they were in the ground!! C-R-E-A-T-I-O-N!!!
Instantaneous Creation of Animals
Genesis 1:21-23: Verse 21 -- God created EVERY living creature of the waters and EVERY winged fowl AFTER THEIR KIND (species). God's creation began with all the different kinds. Evolution says it began with one. This also shows BIRDS and FISHES being made at THE SAME TIME. (Evolution says it took millions of years for birds to evolve from fish). Also shows that birds were made complete with WINGS!
Verse 22 -- Shows these animals were created COMPLETE WITH SEXUAL SYSTEMS. The sexual system cannot be explained by evolutionists. Can you imagine both the female and the male walking or swimming around for 100 million years developing organs that are totally useless UNTIL completely formed and functioning? Evolution tells us that things that are not being used are a hindrance to the body and slowly vanish away. And on top of this we have to believe that during the 100 million years that these "males and females" were all developing the sexual systems that they reproduced by some other means, like division of cells. It takes more faith to believe that poppycock than it does to believe the WORD. The sexual system is not an accident of nature, but a beautiful, spiritual parallel of Jesus and His Bride (The Church), bringing forth fruit (Newborn Christians). We must agree with David, "I am fearfully and wonderfully made." Psalm 139:14.

Y.E.C. Headquarters - A great article with illustrations showing how Darwin's doctrine of Evolution is inherently linked to racism and was the excuse of Hitler's extermination of so called "inferior races" like the Jews, Blacks, Slavs, etc.
Did you know that Evolution and racism are related?
