A: Although believing in a young earth is not essential for salvation, it is critical to properly understanding the character of our Creator. Why? Because the God revealed in Scripture created a perfect world, a world with no death, suffering, or disease. Yet to believe He used evolution is to deny that God created a perfect universe, perfect world, and a perfect first man and woman.
Genesis 1:31 states that everything God made was “very good.” Since 1 Corinthians 15:26 calls death the “last enemy” that will be destroyed, how could we possibly think God called death very good? Why did Jesus heal the sick and raise the dead if sicknesses and death are very good?
If God used evolution, then it logically follows that death and disease were His doing rather than ours, and Jesus would have been sent to cover God’s mistakes. This is not an accurate description of the God of the Bible.
