Why Does Creation Matter?

This is Ken Ham, CEO of Answers in Genesis, Ark Encounter, and the Creation Museum.

I’m often asked by Christians why the Genesis account of creation even matters. They say, “Shouldn’t we just be preaching the gospel?”

Well, the gospel is founded in Genesis! It teaches that God originally made a perfect world, but Adam and Eve’s sin brought death into the creation. It’s because of Adam’s sin that we needed Jesus to come as the Last Adam. Without the fall in Genesis, there’d be no need for the Savior!

Creation is also important because this is an authority issue. There are only two starting points: man’s word and God’s Word. Whenever we trust man’s word over God’s Word, we’re making man the authority—not God.
