The Case Against Theistic Evolution

The Case Against Theistic Evolution

Many creationists would like to compromise with the evolutionists. They are the Theistic Evolutionists. Their cry is, "Can't we just get along?" They recognize a marriage between evolution and creation, a compromise. Evolution is true. Creation is true. God used evolution as a means of creating the earth. Now, we can all be happy. Unfortunately, compromise trumps truth.

For those who believe in evolution and in God there is an irreconcilable contradiction that must be addressed. Evolution is an ongoing process taking millions and millions of years. In fact, this process continues through the present. But God's word says, "Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them. And on the seventh day God ended his work? It was done, finished, completed!

Which belief system is most beneficial to society? Evolution is about elimination of the weak, it is survival of the fittest, it is death and struggle. Blood, guts and gore. It is the foundation belief system that promotes euthanasia, homosexuality, abortion, racism and social decline. Would God have used such a brutal method to bring about his creation? Of course not. It contradicts his nature. After God created he looked at his creation and declared that it was "very good". Had he used evolution to create, by the time he had finished the sixth day of creation millions of years would have passed. During those millions of years, billions of fossils accumulated in the layers of the earth? Would God have looked at all that death and declared that it was all "very good"? Death didn't enter scene until Adam sinned after the completion of creation on the sixth day.

Atheistic evolution involves matter, chance and necessity, mutations, selection, death and very, very long periods of time. Theistic evolution involves matter, chance and necessity, mutations, selection, death and very, very long periods of time, just add God. Its still evolution and its not creation.

C.S. Lewis said, "There is a fine line between science and magic because both are attempts to control nature." When God is removed from science it becomes superstition.

Scientists listen constantly for sound patterns from space that may indicate life. The proof of life would be if these sound patterns have a pattern to them. Yet, these same scientists will look at the pattern of organized information on a strand of DNA that would fill an entire library and declare that it was a freak accident of nature. Absurd! It was organized by intelligence and the intelligent mind that put DNA together was God himself.

DNA = Definitely Not an Accident

"We believe God created the world instantly, completely and recently" - John Barnett

"Where were you when I laid the earth's foundation?" Job 38:4

The evolutionist has plenty of evidence to believe, he simply chooses not to. It is a demonstration of man's arrogant refusal to bow to the Son of God, to declare Christ the Lord!"It is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God."
