Q: Did God use the big bang to bring the universe into existence?


A: No, although many Christians say that we can believe in the big bang—as long as you say God did it. But here’s the big problem with such a scenario. By saying that God created the universe using the big bang, one is really saying that what God said He did in His Word is not true.

Genesis 1 teaches that God made the earth first, covered with water. The sun, moon, and stars were not made until the fourth day of creation.

The big bang, however, teaches that the sun and stars came before the earth, and then the earth formed as a hot molten blob that cooled over a long period of time—before water formed. This is the opposite of what God’s Word clearly states, which means that Christians cannot add the big bang to the Bible.

Sadly, when Christians tell people they can believe in the big bang, they’re also in essence saying, “But you don’t have to take God at His Word.” Such compromise has undermined the authority of God’s Word in our Western nations.
