Did you know that the single most important person in the bible is Adam? You didn’t? Well, dear reader, this will certainly change your mind.
It’s from Ken Ham (ol’ Hambo), the ayatollah of Appalachia, famed not only for his creationist ministry, Answers in Genesis (AIG), but also for the infamous, mind-boggling Creation Museum, and for building an exact replica of Noah’s Ark. Verily, he is the world’s holiest man who knows more about religion and science than everyone else.
Hambo’s very important essay is Adam — A Myth? Get Answers in a Brand-New Resource. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us for emphasis:
One of the most attacked biblical figures of our day is the first man, Adam — the head of the human race. Increasingly secularists and, sadly, even many Christians (including seminary and Bible college professors), claim there never was a literal Adam. But a historical Adam is foundational to the gospel!
Adam is foundational! Hambo says:
Was Adam just a myth? Searching for Adam: Genesis and the Truth About Man’s Origin, a new book from Answers in Genesis and Master Books, seeks to answer this question. This timely resource, edited by AiG’s Dr. Terry Mortenson, features chapters on Adam, man’s origins, and supposed human evolution.
There are chapters on “supposed human evolution”? Sounds great! Let’s read on:
Sixteen experts present evidence that Adam was a historical person from Scripture, History, Theology, Paleontology, Genetics, Archeology, Ethics.
Wowie — sixteen experts! They have evidence from scripture, theology, and ethics? Amazing! Hambo continues:
An attack on Adam is an attack on the gospel. You see, if there never were an Adam, there was no first sin and there was no original sinner. And if there were no first sin and original sinner, then why did Jesus have to come as a man and die to pay the penalty for our sin [scripture reference].
Hey — that’s right! It all depends on Adam. You still have doubts? Hambo explains further:
After all, if man evolved over millions of years, death and bloodshed existed prior to sin, so why did Jesus die? Believing in millions of years of bloodshed and death before sin totally undermines the Scripture which says [scripture quote].
Adam is essential! And he was real! Hambo knows what he’s talking about. He says:
The gospel is grounded in literal history! I hope you’ll order a copy of Searching for Adam for your library. You will be encouraged to see that the evidence confirms God’s Word and the historicity of the first man, Adam.
At the end, ol’ Hambo gives us some interesting news:
Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin recently declared 2017 “the Year of the Bible” in Kentucky — [scripture quote]. He acknowledges the place of the Bible in the history of this nation and its material blessings. Intolerant secularists won’t like it, of course, but they can’t deny the place of the Bible in the history of this nation. Indeed some are already complaining since they want to eliminate the Bible and impose their “there is no God” religion on the culture.
The people of Kentucky are doubly blessed — for having such a holy governor, and for the presence of ol’ Hambo.
