Fact: Which One Came First, the Chicken or the Egg?

Our beliefs become the foundation of our lives. Therefore, it is important to check if our beliefs are aligned with God’s teachings. Likewise, as parents, it is our role to raise our kids with the right beliefs.
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. 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. (Genesis 1:24-25)
Which One Came First, the Chicken or the Egg? This question has been asked countless times. Scripture makes it clear, in the book of Genesis, that God created the animal first. In other words,  the chicken came first then the egg. Time magazine wrote a piece on the same question which led many to confusion and error. The article speaks of many different positions. One position is how chickens have evolved and are similar but to nonchicken creatures that laid an egg that had the become the first chicken. This is just not true. The word of God declares that God created every animal according to its kind. (Genesis 1:25)

Why This Matters?

This is of great importance because what you believe will lead to what you live for. Therefore it is important to ask, do you believe in evolution? If you answered yes, ask yourself, is your answer founded from the word of God? I would say no, evolution and God cannot both be true. Evolution goes directly against God’s word, and what God spoke about in the book of Genesis.

In The Beginning

We see in Genesis that God created everything in 6 days and rested the 7th. Just like man came first and not a man like creature. It is clear in scripture that Jesus was the last Adam. Adam could not have been some ape man. We are all copies of the first original humans, Adam and Eve.
