Christianity and Evolution

In case you missed it, a debate took place recently between Ken Ham and Bill Nye. The topic was Creationism vs Evolution. I was unable to watch the event so I have been searching the internet and social media trying to get some highlights of the debate. As disturbing and dangerous as I find the teaching and especially the belief in evolution, what disturbs me most is when I read comments, articles and posts from professing Christians that have endorsed at least part of evolution. To me, it is like teachers discouraging education to their students. It just doesn’t make sense.
Photo Jan 25, 8 36 32 AM We must understand that from the beginning, the devil has been trying to turn people from God’s Word. Most people imagine that when the devil shows up, he is very detectable and makes no secrets of his intensions. When in reality, this is the furthest thing from the truth. We find evidence in the garden when he tempted Eve. He was subtle and puffed up the flesh. He comes as a friend with a smile while disguising his true purpose. He usually starts with something that appears meaningless and before long, he has created a mountain out of an ant hill. “Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin; and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death’ (James 1:15). Today, one of the devil’s weapons is the theory of evolution. Always be aware that he doesn’t have to have you eat the whole apple. He just needs you to take a bite. (Know ye not that a little leaven leaventh the whole lump?1 Cor 5:6)

One piece of ammunition in the devil’s arsenal, concerning the theory of evolution, is the age of the earth. One of the lies that is told is that the earth is billions of years old and that it’s okay for Christians to agree with this because it really doesn’t do any harm. We are told that we are judgmental, stubborn and not considerate of others opinions, so in an effort to show compassion, many give on this point. After all, what detriment could it cause. The problem is, not only does it cause harm, it’s simply not true, and what we may think is showing good will, possibly in hopes to show some charity, it will only show weakness and could push them farther into denial. No matter what names they call us and how they may try to make us look and feel, we must never, ever, concede on anything when it concerns The Holy Word of God. They can accept it or reject it, but we never water it down. They need to hear the truth because The Bible teaches that the truth shall make you free. (John 8:32)

We must not forget that the goal of evolutionists really isn’t to prove exactly how old the world is. It is to refute the view that the world is approximately 6,000 years old. It’s not so much to prove that the theory of evolution is the correct view, but rather to try to plant the illusion of contradiction in The Word of God and to try to convince people that there is no Creator. The fundamental belief of evolution, unless it has changed, is to make people believe that time, space, matter, planets and life were all created by itself. It is the belief that there was absolutely nothing and then BOOM… now they do. Fossils are dated millions of years old by a sophisticated method of carbon dating that has been around only for a few years. Oh, by the way, it doesn’t take into account a world wide flood. If it did, then it points to The Bible, not to mention how the pressure of parts of the world being submerged by water for a span of close to a year would cause serious problems with their ability to date something flawlessly with their technology. After all, how do you test a world wide flood? When all else fails, and the dots cannot be connected, they call upon the missing link. This, according to them, is knowledge.

Romans 1:22“Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,”

This post isn’t necessarily an attempt to sway an evolutionist to become a Creationist. It’s more for the believer to not advocate a fallacy and give credence to something that is trying to discredit the truth. It’s to cause a Christian to re-evaluate their position and see the dangers in this heresy. The Bible clearly states that God created everything in six (6) days. I understand that God works outside of time and The Word also states that: “one day is with The Lord as a thousand years, and as a thousand years one day” (2 Peter 3:8). I also understand that this was written for us to understand, not a code to discern. There is a reason why the first day ends with “The evening and the morning were the first day”, and subsequently, each of the following five days read the same way. It’s because it was six actual 24 hour calendar days.

Mat 23:24Ye blind guides, which strain at a gnat, and swallow a camel

Your choice is simple. You can either believe that nothing exploded, created something and by chance evolved into what you are and what you see, or you can believe the very first verse of The Word of God. Just remember, it is 100% your choice and you will receive 100% of the repercussions of that choice.
