Christ the Creationist

"For in those days shall be affliction, such as was not from the beginning of the creation which God created unto this time, neither shall be." (Mark 13:19)

In predicting a future judgment on the unbelieving world, the Lord Jesus referred to "the beginning of the creation which God created," thus affirming the biblical doctrine of supernatural, sudden creation. In the pagan world of His day, evolutionism was dominant almost everywhere. The Epicureans, for example, were atheistic evolutionists. The Stoics, Gnostics, Platonists, and others, were pantheistic evolutionists. None of the extra-biblical philosophers of His day believed in a God who had created all things, including even the universe itself.

But Christ was a creationist, and the much maligned "scientific creationists" of today are following His example and teaching. He even believed in recent creation, for He said (speaking of Adam and Eve) that "from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female" (Mark 10:6). The pagans all believed in an eternal cosmos, but Jesus said it had a beginning, and that man and woman were a part of that beginning creation, following which, "The sabbath was made for man" (Mark 2:27).

He also believed that the "two accounts" of creation (Genesis 1 and 2) were complimentary, not contradictory, for He quoted from both in the same context. "Have ye not read," He said, "that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female |Genesis 1|, And said For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh? |Genesis 2|" (Matthew 19:4-6).

There may be some Christians who are evolutionists, but there is no such thing as "Christian evolution," for Christ was a creationist! HMM
