Evolution is perhaps the greatest of all deceptions ever concocted by the enemy to lead Billions astray from a belief in God. Sadly many Church leaders and Pastors have given into the lie of evolution and teach Christians around the world it is OK to believe in evolution and still be a Christian.
But these two worldviews are direct opposition to each other.
Now there are a large variety of definitions of evolution and I should specify what I am talking about in this article. Quite simply I believe the following statement should be held as true by all Christians… “Man was created by God from dust, and not an evolutionary process over millions of years”. If you come to me and say HEY I’m a Christian but I don’t believe that, I believe we evolved from single-cell organisms… then my reply is simple… keep reading.
Far too many Christians today have lowered the standard of the Word of God in their lives (which is to say the ultimate standard of truth). This is not surprising, as most American Christians hardly even read the Bible and fewer study it. So let me explain why… if you choose to believe in Darwinian Evolution, you will have effectively rendered the Word of God to be a literary work of fiction and nothing more.
Evolution teaches that the only way humans came to exist was through MILLIONS and MILLIONS of years of death and dying. But God teaches us something completely different in the Bible.
Therefore, just as sin entered the world through one man, and death through sin, and in this way death came to all people, because all sinned–
According to Holy Scripture, death didn’t enter the world until SIN… or more specifically Adam’s Sin. Before that, death didn’t exist… humans didn’t die. You may also be aware that, according to the Bible, Adam was created from dust… and was not evolved over Millions of years. He was created a fully grown man, fully capable of living his life on day one. You may have chosen to give up that belief under the pressure from a fallen secular society… but nearly every Christian knows what the Bible says on that issue… at least I hope.
People can say all day long, that Chimpanzees are 98% the same as Humans genetically speaking… but what a gap… what an immeasurable SPAN lies in that 2%. The truth is quite simple, if God created all things in His way, I would EXPECT very similar systems “under the hood”. You know how many Chimpanzees will be splitting Atoms or building automobiles in one million years? Zero. Or how many will be contemplating the existence of God and reading the Bible? Zero (don’t worry if mankind is still around in one million years, the Bible will be here too). Look at the last few hundred years of Human history that we can actually observe… look how far we have advanced as a species… and yet the Chimps are still the Chimps… they haven’t advanced one iota.
But Keith, we need more time, yes I know. You need millions of years, and if that doesn’t work make it billions. The whole notion is ridiculous… but if you get enough white lab coats to agree on something, you can get people to believe anything. Just remember history is littered with scientific “truths” proven wrong.
Let’s clear up a misconception
The book of Genesis is a book of History. Jesus Christ Himself often referred back to the book of Genesis, and He certainly believed it to be a true account of Creation. Now you can choose to not believe Genesis and you can even choose to not believe the words of Jesus Christ, but then I ask you… in what then do you place your faith?
Let us continue…
Why did Jesus Christ die on the cross? To pay the price for our Sins. Here is the key, He died to pay the price for ALL mankind’s sin… not just some of them, but ALL OF THEM. So now we must ask the question… where did sin come from, where did it begin? According to scripture, it entered the world when Adam disobeyed God in the Garden. This is not an allegory, it is a factual account of our beginnings, so please stop letting a fallen secular world convince you otherwise.
If you choose to believe in evolution, this is what happens: You throw the whole idea of sin entering the world when Adam disobeyed God OUT the window. This is catastrophic for two reasons:
- If sin DIDN’T enter the world as the Bible says, and we evolved, then Jesus died on the cross for NOTHING. No sin, no need for the blood of Jesus.
- And even worse… if you say you don’t believe the historical narrative revealed to us in the book of Genesis by God Himself, then you mean to say the Bible is false. You cannot logically say one part of the Bible is false, but all the good Jesus stuff near the end is true. If the Bible is false, Jesus was a fraud and we might as well toss our Bibles in the trash and go home.
Christians it’s time to go on RED ALERT!
This is a call to arms! We are living in a society where the TRUTH is being replaced with LIES at every turn and we MUST NOT roll over and accept any of it. When society says evolution is true, we have to STAND. When society says homosexuality is loving and healthy we have to STAND. When society says a man can choose to be a woman we have to STAND.
If you are a Christian, stop treating that title like a membership to a social club on Sunday. Being a Christian is a lot more than going to a Toby Mac concert and posting memes on facebook. It’s about FOLLOWING JESUS CHRIST. He told us before He left, we WOULD BE HATED for His name (Matthew 10:22)?
Are you hated or do you fit right in with the rest of the world? If it’s the latter, why do think that is?
