BibleNew TestamentJude

Yet Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him a railing accusation, but said, The Lord rebuke thee.
10 But these speak evil of those things which they know not: but what they know naturally, as brute beasts, in those things they corrupt themselves.
11 Woe unto them! for they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward, and perished in the gainsaying of Core.

Literal Reading

Verse 11 is cited here as an example of the New Testament "accepting" events of early Genesis as literally true. See comment here. —BP

The "gainsaying of Core (Korah)"

See Is Heliocentrism analogous to Evolution? for a link to a Christadelphian on youtube applying verse 11 to people who argue that evolution can be reconciled with the Bible, analogously with heliocentrism: “using the Bible . . . against itself”
