Creationism (4) “After His Kind”


When God created the universe, He mandated that all living things should reproduce after their own kind. The Hebrew word for kind is min and literally means type and, of course, kind. Well what is a kind? A kind is a group of something that all have similar characteristics. For example, a Grizzly Bear, a Polar Bear, and a Black Bear are all part of the kind of bear. Genesis is very clear that God created everything after their own kinds and ordered them to reproduce after their own kinds. Below is a list of every occurrence of the word kind in Genesis 1.

Genesis 1:11, “And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so.”

Genesis 1:12, “And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good.”

Genesis 1:21, “And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good.”

Genesis 1:24, “And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so.”

Genesis 1:25, “And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that it was good.”

Evolution states that each animal evolved from some other kind of animal. Man evolved from apes, birds evolved from dinosaurs, mammals evolved from fish, etc, etc, etc. The phrase “after his kind” proves evolution wrong. Genesis 1 teaches that God created grass, herbs, trees, whales, birds, cattle, creeping things, and every living thing after their kind. God did not use the process of evolution to create His creatures. He spoke by the word of His mouth and a whale was created. He spoke by the word of His mouth and a monkey was created. He spoke and the crow was created. A fish cannot become a mammal, because a fish is of a different kind, than a mammal. Therefore, evolution  is not in harmony with what Genesis 1 teaches us. One cannot be a theistic evolutionist for God created each living thing after their own kind. God created it, it did not evolve into different kinds.

    1. Evolution, as an (unproven) theory of science, by the fallible human intellect, the brainchild of Charles Darwin and his friends, does and cannot prove anything right. Theories have to be proven, and are not themselves proof of anything. And especially it cannot prove the Bible wrong, which is Truth, and the infallible Word of God Himself.

      1. I would like to bring out a truth within scripture that should put to rest the false idea that God used Revolution and billions of years to create. 1 it has been argued that a day in genesis might have been actually billions of years. This could be true I guess except for God chose to use 6 days to create and a 7th to rest. Note the order of creation: God created the herbs trees one day then create the sun moon and stars. going on evolution this would not be possible sence those herbs …trees would have died off without light

        Why does man fight the truth that God is not confined to our understanding and our ways. He created us and not as the evolutionist would claim – from apes – rather from the dust of the earth woman from the rib of Adam All creation came in existence because first in his wisdom he chose it to be so and second because he called it into being. First what we call earth was created later in the week he created the stars sun and moon. The universe was created in his wisdom for us both to sustain life and draw us to know his nature ( charictor) from a pure mathematical science veiw life threw evolution is impossible. going to give only a few reasons among a sea of resins. for life to exist the sun has to be the size it is and earth the size it is the sea to land mass the way it is. fact sun and moon are moving away from the earth at a rate that eliminates the time needed for an evolution based theary to be possible. DNA has the complexity compatible to the complexity of New York city thus the idea of simple cell is now known to be profoundly complex in makeup. if one was to take all the nessisary mathematical considerations for life to accidentky happen I bet that number would hold more zeros than the number of stars in creation but why even argue with God – he created out of nothing speaking it into being He loves us individually and longs to know us and for us to come to know him. sin put a wegde of separation between us and Him which he chose to gaps with the death and resurrection of Jesus – how loved us loves us and is preparing a place for us. The truth is if one could count all the atoms in creation count each as a 120 years that would be only a start of eternity for eternity as defined is not a thing of time lasting forever God bless
