Adam Naming the Animals in the Garden of Eden

Exploring Creation in Scripture

The Creator made the Heavens and the Earth including plants, animals, and man. The phrase ‘Genesis Kinds’ refers to the creatures (the created kinds) that were made during the Creation Week. Unlike the secular views of modern biology which study the functions of the body, Scripture states that life is much more than just functions which respond to a stimulus.

The Creator

The Almighty created the Heavens and the Earth including the plants, the animals, and mankind. He spoke them into existence in a literal seven day act of creation. Explore the meanings of the Creator’s names and titles as well as the act of creating.

Creation in Scripture

The Scriptures are the authoritative and accurate word from the Creator to mankind. The majority of the Scriptures are written in a literal and straightforward style. It is correct in describing the creation in both the physical and spiritual aspects of life. Working with the original languages will yield surprising clarity on a number of issues regarding creation, created kinds, and life itself.

Plant Kinds

What are the major types of plants created on day three? Are plants really alive? Examining the scriptural text reveals much about the grass, herbs, and trees around us.

Animal Kinds

Is there a classification system for animals in Scripture? Perhaps not. While Adam may have been able to recognize and name the different kinds of animals, the various terms describing such activities as swarming, creeping, or flying are generally applied in the early chapters of Genesis. The animals represented by these terms cross many boundaries that modern classification systems would not accept.

Man Kind

Who is Man? What authority does he have? How does man’s sin effect Creation? How does the Believer answer the great questions of life? Creation was made to be inhabited and the Earth was placed under the authority of mankind who is made in the image of the Creator. One of the best ways to encourage life is to boldly confront the issues.

Creation Restored

Creation is currently in a fallen state and man cannot bring it back to where it should be. Man himself is fallen and in need of redemption and restoration. This is a job that must be done by the Creator Himself.
