Creative Science Appendix – New Testament Affirms Genesis

Jn 2:1-11: Jesus’ first miracle was a creative act – turning water into wine.

Mt 19:4-6, Mk 10:6: Jesus quotes from Genesis in support of marriage as the sacred joining of a man and a woman into one flesh with the divine purpose of procreation.

Lk 11:51: Jesus refers to Abel as a real person.

Mt 24:37-38 &  Lk 17:26-27: Jesus confirms the flood is fact and Noah was a real person.

Jn 5:45-46: Jesus said we should accept the “books of Moses” because Moses wrote about him. Jesus also frequently quoted Moses in all of the gospel accounts.

Jn 8:56-58: Jesus refers to Abraham as a real historic person.

Mk 13:19: Jesus confirms God created everything.

2 Tim 3:14-17: Be confident in your faith. To do this, be confident in what you believe. Be assured your faith is rational.

2 Tim 3:1-7: In the last days there will be those who creep in and start convincing people the creation account is fiction.

1 Pe 3:15: People will ask what you believe. Arm yourself with support for your faith. Answer questions about your faith with respect.

Jas 1:12,17: God is good. He does not change. It is a blessing to be steadfast in this belief.

Jn 12:42-43: If you don’t know what you believe then you can be deceived and not only fall away yourself, but drag others down with you.

Mt 12:26: United we stand, divided we fall. There is only one truth and only one bride to Christ.

Ro 1:24-25: Paul gives us a very clear warning that we must put our faith in the Creator, not the created. The former have hope of eternal life, but the latter are allowed to do as they will to their own demise. You must know what you believe and why.

Jn 1:1-3,14: John testified to the involvement of Anointed One (Christ) as the Son of God in Creation. In fact, it declares the person of the Son was, as Son of God, with God and it was through the Son that Creation was made.

Rev 10:5-6: An angel who spoke to John declared that Jesus was in fact the one by whose hand all was created.

Ro 5:12-15: Paul considered Adam to be a real individual and personally responsible for the fall of man. Here he speaks of sin being universal, with or without a written law. He also indicates Jesus has authority to forgive sin by the free gift of grace. If God set the standard for righteousness then only God can forgive sin (through Christ).

Gen 1:27: Regardless of whether this means anything about appearance, it definitely means character. Man was created sinless and perfect of character. It was only after man sinned that death came as a result of the sin.

Heb 1:1-4: Jesus is God’s image. He did what Adam could not, and that was to live his life without disfiguring the character (image) of God. This one short passage says a great deal about Jesus, crediting him with Creation, purification for sin, and superiority over creation.

Gen 3:22-24: Following Creation, as a result of sin, man was rejected and sent away from the garden and the tree of life.

Rev  22:1-5: The final event of creation is the restoration of man to God’s image in personal community with God. Our hope is life eternal without the pain and suffering from the curse of Adam.

    Thanks, Bernie. Sometimes it seems like the only thing I hear on the web is crickets. LOL. Well, I don’t have time to go around leaving a lot of comments so I don’t get many here. I guess that’s the way it goes. I don’t have the time or energy to shop for comments, nor do I care like I did back when I was somewhat popular on xanga. I still leave a post or two there each month, but that’s about it. I’m glad to hear you’re doing well. You remain in prayers.
