In the beginning…famous words, beautiful words. Creation is beautiful. Creation implies a Creator. The concept is simple. God has a way of using the foolish things to confound the wise. The idea that all creatures were created by God (and that humans were created in His image) gives dignity, worth, and purpose to each and every one of us… something people seem to be in desperate need of today. God knew beforehand that the theory of evolution would rise up and He even tried to warn us about it in His word. The book of Genesis was written by Moses long before Jesus came to earth and certainly long before Charles Darwin wrote his book, “On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, or the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life”. In Genesis, God repeats a simple phrase over and over. Do you know what that phrase is? It is, “after his kind”. It seems He wanted to drive that point home to anyone willing to listen…even before the theory of evolution was founded.
Every time Genesis tells us that a creature was created, it says that it brought forth creatures after his kind. This means that each type of creature could only bring forth creatures that were of its own kind. I always used to wonder why God would repeat himself over an over. I believe now it was because He knew beforehand so many would be fooled by the theory of evolution and He wanted to set us straight! In celebration of this, I did some bible journaling in Genesis 1. The video is below. If you’d like more information on the science of creation you can find many scholarly articles at https://www.icr.org and https://www.answersingenesis.org. I particularly like the “That’s a Fact” videos on the ICR website.
