accept the proposition that God started life on earth by creating the
simplest forms of life and leaving them to evolve? Would that not
satisfy both creationists and evolutionists?
For a Christian to
accept the proposition above is actually to abdicate Christianity and also
to reduce it to a simple, meaningless, club. In fact, should one
accept the above proposition one would give the lie to Christianity.
Christianity would be a farce.
You see, friends,
Christianity must have no rivals. Either it is true, or it is false.
To accept that God started life by making the simplest forms of life and
leaving them to evolve means that the teachings of the Bible on creation are
myths and falsehood. The Bible states categorically that God made this
world through fiat creation; that is, God made things immediately, and in
their completed forms. There was, and there is, no order of life that
evolved from a simple order into a more complex one. The Scriptures
say, for example, in
Exodus 20:8, 11, that in six days God created the heavens and the earth
and rested on the seventh day, the Sabbath. In six literal days God
made everything; he even made a memorial of this creation; he made the
seventh day, and called it the Sabbath; so as mankind rested every weekly
Sabbath he would remember the creative works of God.
And also, the
Bible teaches that man fell from perfection into sinfulness; it says that
man's disobedience in the garden brought sin and death into the world.
This means that before sin came into the world nothing was supposed to die.
We read in
Romans 5:12 that by one man's sin death came into the world and passed
on to everyone, for all have sinned. Evolution teaches that death is
natural to the universe, and that by death things evolve and become better
or more complex. Evolution cannot exist without the presence of death.
teaches that God sent Jesus into the world to die for fallen humanity.
Jesus' death offers pardon and salvation from sin to all who accept this
sacrifice. Should we accept any form of, or compromise with, evolution then
we make this whole assertion of Jesus dying for our sins, and saving us from
our sins, total nonsense. More than that, if we accept evolution or
any party of it we make God a myth or a liar; we make Christ a mere
misguided human being deceiving humanity. Evolution, or theistic
evolution as the proposition above, cannot be accepted by Christians.
It is totally false. The teaching of evolution is one of Satan's ploys
to remove belief and trust in God, and to rubbish His salvation for
Finally, even if
we refuse to accept the existence of God and creation, we do not invalidate
this truth. The truth is the truth regardless of the distortions and
perversions we propose. Satan will soon be destroyed when Jesus
returns to this world to claim his faithful people. Satan knows this
and is trying desperately to prevent humanity from accepting this loving and
gracious gift of pardon, so they too can loose eternal life. My prayer
for all my readers is that they will not be deceived by falsehood; but that
they will accept Jesus into their lives and so be saved for eternity when he
returns to this earth. God bless.
