Did You Know?*
Death Before Adam
By Gregory Eckrich
Did you know public school teachers, Christian school teachers, evolutionists, American media, the National Education Association (dominant teachers union in the US) all teach our children that death occurred before Adam ever existed? It's true.
Evolutionists (and followers) say that the earth is billions of years old; life started when a single cell was ignited by lightening in a puddle of chemicals; and, all life proceeded from this one-celled critter. Humans, they say, have been on earth for more than a million years. If true this would mean that death and blood shed have gone on for many more millions of years. Then, they have the arrogance to say that science proves this nonsense.
Each of the above statements contradicts scripture. Nor are these statements born out by science.
Bishop Ussher tells us God created the earth in 4004 BC. Even if he is wrong by an order of magnitude it does not comport to evolutionary beliefs.
Has the original animal ever been identified? No. God created fish and fowl on day five; man and beasts on day six.
Was life created in a splash of chemicals shot through with electricity? No. No matter how long people in white coasts have attempted to do so, they can not create life in the laboratory.
Has science (using the scientific method) ever proved 'goo to you' to be true? No.
Can these people even prove, via the scientific method, that the earth is billions of years old? No. GEN 1:1--In the beginning God created...
Were any of these brilliant evolutionists there to see creation? No.
Well, then, I have a word for you: I know the God who, not only was there, but who started it all! And, HE tells me that...
In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. GEN 1:1 KJV
Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned: ROM 5:12 KJV
For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. ROM 6:23 KJV
HE was there in the beginning; HE did the creating; Adam sinned; death entered the world as punishment; HE provided a way for us to return to HIM through HIS son, our savior Jesus the Christ. AMEN.
And now you know.

Please forgive my above comment if it gives the impression that I disagree with Greg. What he says about death, Adam and Christ Jesus (the last Adam) is true. There was no death before the First Adam and it took the Last Adam to bring that life back. It would do us all good to look at the evidence for creation material that he has, if any of us were brainwashed in any way by evolutionists.
Here is an excerpt from a textbook used by homeschoolers and Christian schools (The title of this book is Science Order and Reality and is an A Beka Book):" 11.I believe that the physical creation is gradually wearing out. This process started when Adam ad Eve disobeyed God and their sin brought a curse on all of creation. The second law of thermodyanmics describes this truth." "Of old hast thou laid the foundation of the earth: and the heavens are the work of thy hands. They shall perish, but thou shalt undure: yea, all of them shall wax old like a garment (wear out gradually). Psalm 102:25, 26a". These books and soooo many more are available to and are used by many Christian parents and Christian schools. These books lay their foundations on the Bible as the only real truth from which all our studies must be based for accuracy. So don't give up hope, God is there for those who diligently seek Him and the wonder of His Handiwork.
Isn't it just amazing how the enemy will use things such as (worldly) knowledge and so-called wisdom to try and teach our children anything BUT God? I remember getting an F on a very well written paper in biology class because I was told to choose from any one of the "theories" and I chose the creation "theory" to write about. I didn't "show any scientific evidence to prove my theory." Umm... I guess the other students did? Well, we know the Truth behind the truth. And I guess I'll take an F any day for THAT kind of knowledge.
