Is There a Gap in Genesis One?

Is there a gap between the second and third verses of Genesis chapter one? Find out on today’s Creation Moments Minute.

Some people have been taught that a gap of millions of years between the original creation of the Earth and the Earth we know today can explain the fossil record and the millions of years proposed by evolution.

The gap theory, however, is not supported by the Hebrew of Genesis. More importantly, the Bible teaches us that death first came into the world when humans began to sin. The Bible repeats many times that sin and death began with Adam and not before. This is such an important point that the Bible links the beginning of sin and death with the first Adam … and the victory over sin and death with Jesus Christ, spoken of as the Second Adam.

There is no truth in the gap theory whatsoever.
