Did God create the world or did it randomly evolve over a period of millions of years?

 

The Holy Spirit inspired the Apostle Paul to write these words: “Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse” (Romans 1:19-20). Based on the visible world around us and all that it contains, we can conclude that this world did not come into existence as the result of an “accident.” On the contrary, it was a perfectly designed, divinely orchestrated event that was completed in six days, not several million years.

The argument between creationists and evolutionists continues: Scientists try to prove that the world and all life forms evolved, while Christians use the same fundamental approach to prove that God created the world. But our final authority is Scripture, which says, “Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear” (Hebrews 11:3). Notice the use of the pronoun “we” instead of “they.” For the believer, it is eternally settled in heaven: “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.” We fully comprehend this fact by faith!
