Both Peter and Paul warned us in the Bible against believing in man-made fables that only lead us into doubting God’s word. Unfortunately, a good number of believers today and a good number of churches have allowed fables to creep in unawares to the point where they do, in fact, doubt the truths we find in the Bible. It has gotten so bad that even some Christian apologists have bought into the fables promoted by evolutionists that the Earth is more than a billion years old and they attempt to twist Genesis and twist Christ’s words to back up those fables.
Two of those well-known apologists, John Ankerberg and Norm Geisler, use the following three arguments about Jesus’ take on creation in Mark 10:6 to promote the evolutionist old earth scenario:
- Adam was not created at the beginning but at the end of the creation period.
- The Greek word for create (ktisis) can mean “institution” or “ordinance” (as in 1 Peter 2:13).
- Even in Mark 10:6 is speaking of the original creation events, it does not mean there could not have been a long period of time involved in those creative events.
In this 30-minute YouTube video from Creation Ministries International, Richard Fangrad and Calvin Smith refute these arguments to prove that Jesus taught about a young earth and to point out why that teaching is important to the gospel of Jesus Christ.
