What does the Bible say about Creation and Evolution?



Genesis 1:1 states, “In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.” The first verse in the Bible clearly states that God created the world as we know it and the world beyond us in heaven as the spiritual world. Romans 1:20 states, “For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been seen, being understood from what has been made so that people are without excuse.” This verse describes how the complexity and beauty of the world prove the existence and the eternal creativity of God. The Bible mentions multiple times that God created the world. The whole question of evolution has some relevance from a Christian perspective. As long as it is believed that God had a hand in that evolution process then it can still line up with these scriptures. The bible does not specifically mention evolution.
