A new documentary movie that features over a dozen scientists and scholars explaining how the world intersects with Genesis. From rock layers to fossils to lions to stars, this fascinating film will change the way you see the world.
The case for creation in six normal days
This important documentary shines new light on our origins, providing a positive case for creation in six normal days, a real Adam and Eve, a global flood, and a tower of Babel. Dr. Del Tackett, the creator of “The Truth Project,” serves as your guide—hiking through canyons, climbing mountains, and diving below the sea—in an exploration of two competing views … one compelling truth.
Length: 118 minutes (Film: 101 min – Q&A/Credits: 17 min)
Recommended Age: 12+ (due to complexity of content; younger children can come, but it could be over their heads)
1. GENESIS IS THE FOUNDATION OF THE GOSPEL
Everything starts with Adam. If Adam didn’t disobey and bring sin and death into the world, then there was no reason for Christ to save us. Paul understood that. It’s why he spends a lot of time comparing Adam with Jesus: one transgression brought condemnation for all, one act of righteousness brought justification; one man brought death, one man brought life; one choice made many sinners, one choice made many righteous. Paul even refers to Jesus as “the last Adam.”
The mission of Jesus
This is why Luke links Jesus to Adam through a single, complete genealogy. He then tells us Jesus went into the desert to be tempted by Satan; Jesus was mirroring the temptation of Adam, but this time to obey. Jesus knew what His mission was: undo the sentence of death on humanity and the curse of corruption on creation. No Adam, no sin; no sin, no death, and corruption; no death and corruption, no point for Jesus. Jesus came to save us because Genesis is history. The entire gospel is based on it.
2. GENESIS IS THE SOLUTION FOR OUR CULTURE
If culture is the way people choose to order their lives, then Genesis is where God shows us His order for culture. We all know there are strange cultural ideas being embraced today. What is rare to hear, however, is someone in the public square point to Genesis as the reason why something should or shouldn’t be done. As a result, there are a lot of people in the pews and kids in youth groups who need to hear what Genesis has to say about culture.
Take the transgender issue: if God created man in His own image as male and female, then we are essentially male and female from the beginning, and our sex can’t change. Or marriage: if God created Eve to marry Adam and have children, and they are the pattern for all men and women, then two men or two women can’t marry each other. Or climate change/global warming: if God told Noah after the Flood He would never destroy the earth again with water, and that all the seasons (i.e., the climate) would remain the same for seedtime and harvest, then there’s no need to fear any future climate issues.
The list goes on and on: life, economics, environmental stewardship, technology, food, science…. Genesis is the ultimate counter-cultural book that provides the standard for how we should order our lives.
3. GENESIS IS BEING REINTERPRETED BY EVOLUTIONISTS
There is an influential movement today that many Christians are unaware of. Its goal is to re-introduce Darwinian evolution into Christian theology. This idea is called theistic evolution or evolutionary creation. The primary group pushing this view is Biologos, and it has a lot of well-known Christians and thinkers (many of whom I respect) on their website saying good things about it. The organization is teaching heresy.
It was seen to be heresy back in the 19th-century when Asa Gray, a good friend of Charles Darwin’s and an American scientist, tried to take Darwin’s new history of the world and end the world and reinterpret Genesis with it. Darwin did not think this possible since the whole point of his theory was to replace the Genesis account. Nevertheless, some theologians and scientists have tried to merge the two histories and attempt to hold onto the gospel.
It is the devil’s delusion. Here are some of the heresies they are now promoting that contradict the Biblical account: there were hundreds of millions of years of death in the world before Adam sinned; the creation has always been subject to corruption; Adam and Eve were just two hominids out of group of hominid-type creatures; there are no unique created kinds since everything goes back to a common bacterial ancestor; God used evolution (which progresses through killing off the unfit) as the primary way to create everything we see.
Clearly, this is a completely different history of the world than the one taught in Genesis. Biologos is well funded and spends a lot of money trying to influence pastors and seminary students. It is dangerous: not only is it teaching bad theology, it is presenting faulty science.
4. THE HISTORY IN GENESIS IS CONFIRMED BY THE WORLD AROUND US
Our basic thesis of the film is that Genesis is a good book of history, and the events it records can be confirmed by studying the world around us. From the huge layers of sediment stacked across the continents and filled with fossils (evidence of a global flood) to the mutually-dependent, interrelated complexity of endless biological systems and ecosystems (evidence of six-day creation), Genesis gives us a history that is dependable and reliable.
Supported by scientists
The film spends time with over a dozen scientists explaining the world around us in light of the history recorded in Genesis. They represent just a fraction of the hundreds of scientists who see Genesis as a true and accurate authority.
Ultimately, it all comes back to the authority of scripture. Just as Jesus, Peter, Paul, Luke, and John saw Genesis as a historical authority, so should everyone in the church today. When Christians realize that Genesis is truly history starting in the very first chapters, it will change the way they view everything.
