While someone can believe in millions of years and still be a Christian, they are not being consistent. In reality they are falling into a trap. Satan wants you to doubt God’s Word. The first thing that he said to Eve in the Garden of Eden was,
“Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?” (Genesis 3:1)
The very first thing he said to Eve was planting a seed of doubt in her mind about what God had told Adam. Again, Satan wants you to doubt God’s Word. He wants you to believe his lies instead. Satan is the father of all lies and there is no truth in him:
“Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.” John 8:44
The second thing that Satan said to Eve in the Garden was,
“Ye shall not surely die” Genesis 3:4.
Here he was denying God’s Word. He did not want her to believe what God had said in Genesis 2:17:
“But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.”
Today Satan is going to try and use the same method on us that he used on Eve in the Garden of Eden. He wants you to doubt and then deny God’s Word; and it starts with the very first book in the Bible: the Book of Genesis.
If we add up the genealogies in the Bible, we see that God created Adam, the first man, about 6,000 years ago. This was on the sixth day of Creation Week. The days of this Creation Week were literal, 24 hour days. Satan does not want you to believe this. He does not want you to believe God’s Word which says:
“For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the Lord blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it” Exodus 20:11.
Instead, Satan wants you to believe in millions of years and evolution. If Satan can get someone to believe a lie about the beginning of God’s Word, he can get them to doubt the rest of the Bible. He knows that the Book of Genesis is the foundational book of the entire Bible; and he wants to destroy this foundation:
“If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?” Psalm 11:3
This is why this is such a critical issue. A large percentage of Christians today, even Christian leaders and pastors, have fallen into Satan’s trap into believing in millions of years. We need to get back to the authority of God’s Word. God’s Word is truth, and it should be foundational to all of our thinking. If we can show people that the beginning of the Bible is true, it makes it much easier when it comes time to share the good news of Jesus Christ in the New Testament.
