Don't Fall For Theistic Evolution

Don't Fall For Theistic Evolution

white desert sands

I Timothy 6:20  O Timothy, keep that which is committed to thy trust, avoiding profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so called: 21  Which some professing have erred concerning the faith. Grace be with thee. Amen.  

Theistic Evolution Is A Trap

Many Christians have been falling into the trap of Theistic Evolution, which states that God created life, but he created it to unfold and develop through evolutionary processes. Theistic Evolution posits the claim that man was not created as he is today, but was created as a lesser organism and indeed if one adopts Theistic Evolution, then there can be no half measures and one must take the process all the way back to simple carbon compounds. 

We know that the Bible does say point blank that man began with simple carbon compounds: 

the dust of the earth

But there were no intermediary forms, as evolution requires.

Man went instantly from dust of the earth to a fully formed and mature human being.
Genesis 1:27  So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
The Hebrew word "bara" ברא is translated in this verse as "created." The first use is in the imperfect mood indicating that it is a process not yet completed. The reason for this is not because man is evolving. It is because "man" was not yet complete having as yet no wife. The second and third use of "bara" within this same verse is in the perfect mood indicating completion.

Furthermore, the image of God does not change, as God himself does not change. God does not evolve. God is the same yesterday, today and forever. 

Man Is Created In The Image Of God (Jesus Christ)

What is this "image of God" in which God made man? Do we know? Is there room for it to be some evolutionary intermediary form?

The Bible answers this question.
1 Corinthians 11:7  For a man indeed ought not to cover his head, forasmuch as he is the image and glory of God: but the woman is the glory of the man.
Man in his current form is the image of God.

And furthermore:
2 Corinthians 4:4  In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.
Jesus Christ himself is the image of God.

It is very clear that God looks like a man if Scripture is to be believed. He has the semblance and likeness of us.

God crowned his creation with the image of himself.


Not a monkey or a lemur or any ancestor of them.

Jesus Christ is not the savior of the apes.

Jesus Christ is the savior of humanity and we are the image of God and have always been the image of God.

The Genesis Creation Account Is Literal

The New Testament contains so many references to a literal Genesis creation that if one chooses to discount Genesis, then one must also throw out essentially all of the New Testament as well.

Both Matthew and Mark state as a matter of fact that male and female human beings were the beginning of God's creation of man and not some lower form:
Matthew 19:4 And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female

Mark 10:6 But from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female.
Luke when giving Jesus' lineage through his earthly father ends with this verse:
Luke 3:3838  Which was the son of Enos, which was the son of Seth, which was the son of Adam, which was the son of God.
Paul confirms the Genesis account:
Romans 5:14 Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over them that had not sinned after the similitude of Adam’s transgression, who is the figure of him that was to come.

1 Corinthians 15:22 For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.

1 Corinthians 15:45 And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit.

1 Timothy 2:13 For Adam was first formed, then Eve.

Jude confirms the Genesis account:

Jude 1:14 And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints,
The writer of Hebrews confirms the six day creation:
Hebrews 4:4 For he spake in a certain place of the seventh day on this wise, And God did rest the seventh day from all his works.
Never once anywhere in the Bible does anyone claim that the Genesis account is anything but literal. Most notably is the fact that Jesus Christ himself confirms the Genesis account and never questions it and HE WAS THERE. But I suppose that liberal theologians also do not accept the deity of Jesus Christ or his role as creator of all things.

Theistic Evolution is a trap to lure Christians into incremental disavowal of Biblical truth that ends with having no faith in any Biblical truth. 

This is how APOSTASY unfolds. 

Evolution Itself Requires Faith

Evolution is a trap that is easy to fall into when you, as a Christian, attempt to debate the world on the world's turf using the world's terms.

The truth of God can never be revealed through anything BUT FAITH.

And faith is illogical so the world cannot ever see faith as the answer.

And so it is written:
I Corinthians 3:18  Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you seemeth to be wise in this world, let him become a fool, that he may be wise. 19  For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness. 20  And again, The Lord knoweth the thoughts of the wise, that they are vain.
Christians get into trouble when they start falling for the systems of this fallen world, as they COMPROMISE Bible truth to align with worldly wisdom. 

This world is designed to give apparent answers and seemingly sound explanations to lost men who wish to rule out God. The "answers" are all VAIN and never quite answer anything completely.

Therefore, it takes a leap of faith to believe in evolution. The lost accept it not because it is proven, but because it is the only option other than God's Word being true.

Many who claim to be Christians are lifted up in PRIDE these days. Their faith is in themselves. They follow man. They glorify themselves with vain arguments rather than falling on Christ and sacrificing their own prideful desires. 

Paul was very educated. Paul was a Pharisee among Pharisees. Paul was the Pinnacle of the teachers of the Law. But he was wrong. Paul was separated from God by his own ARROGANCE

Paul did not get right until he fell on the ROCK and was broken. 

Are you feeling a little bothered? A little upset? A little under attack by these words? Perhaps this is God working on your character. Do you take offense? We need to stop being "me" oriented and start being Christ oriented. Human logic is all about "me." Faith is about Jesus Christ. 

Science Falsely So Called

How many people today are relying on their education, their position, their supposed accomplishments as a justification of themselves? 

Many who claim to be Christians are falling away from the WORD of God to chase after every new teaching in an attempt to lift themselves up above one another. They are full of endless arguments and debates and fascinations with worldly wisdom. 

It is argued that Genesis was written for simple pastoral and nomadic tribal folk, therefore the message was dumbed down to a simplistic form because neither the writers nor the audience of the day had our modern understanding.

But such arguments ignore the  power of God to do exactly what he has said that he did. 

And such arguments ignore the god of this world who has inspired many to run to and fro and to increase the knowledge of mankind.

Science - Latin for knowledge 

Isn't coveting knowledge what got you kicked out of the garden to begin with?

What, man? You never learn? 

Satan is the god behind modern science. Science tells a lot of truth, but the truth is told with the strategic intent of leading to the greatest of lies. All science is being brought to bear to fulfill prophecy that mankind will be marked in totality by a final totalitarian ruler. The world joins hands in unity to welcome this antichrist as god to rule over a one world government, economy and religion.

Is there no skepticism for any of the fruit we are being offered by the Powers That Be?
Do not be intimidated by the mockery of a lost and dying world that calls traditional Christianity ignorant and unlearned. Their mocking will grow louder as we all march inexorably toward six hundred threescore and six.

The Christian should take the path of faith in God's Word. Not man's science. 

Give up no ground to the world. Not an inch.
