Why I believe that the teaching of evolution should be a concern to all Christians...

 

Evolution is a teaching that greatly concerns me. I feel this way because it is a teaching that has led so many people who once had a strong faith in God, to losing their faith in God altogether after being exposed to evolution's teachings.  For the most part, the teachings of evolution lead vast amounts of people away from God. The following excellent video gives strong proof that the teachings of evolution are spiritually destructive. This video gives a large number of examples of people testifying to the fact that the teachings of evolution either caused them to question their faith in God or it destroyed their faith in God altogether. Any teaching that has the potential to ruin so many souls and lead them away from God is not a teaching that any person who deeply loves the Lord should be promoting. We must be sensitive to a person's delicate faith as the Bible tells us and try not to promote any teaching that might cause a soul to stumble and lead them from the narrow path of walking with the Lord. I hope you will enjoy this excellent video and that you will pass it on to others.

Evolution is a teaching that has led so many to the deceptions of atheism and agnosticism. This video explains that sad fact.

How does Theistic Evolution contradict the Bible? by Dr. Terry Mortenson

 

There are some people who claim to believe in Theistic Evolution. However, if a person wants to say that they are a Bible-believing Christian and believe in Theistic Evolution too then they are traveling down a very dangerous path. Theistic Evolution is sometimes referred to as Progressive Creationism and in this section, Dr. Terry Mortensen shares about how this belief contradicts the Bible and he answers the question, 'What's wrong with Progressive Creationism?'...

 

Dr. Terry Mortensen's response is, "Well, to answer the question of what's wrong with Progressive Creationism or Theistic Evolution, the first thing we have to do is define what we mean by Progressive Creationism.

 

To start with, Theistic Evolutionists/Progressive Creationists believe the following which are in clear contradiction with the Bible:

1.  Believe nature is the 67th book of the Bible and that it is as reliable as the Word of God is.

2.  Believe in the Big Bang Theory

3.  Believe the days of creation are overlapping

4.  Believe that God created different creatures every so often over millions of years

5.  Believe that there were millions of years which included death occurring before Adam's sin

6.  Believe that there were pre-Adam creatures that looked like humans but didn't have souls

7.  Believe that Noah's flood was a local flood in the Mesopotamia Valley

8.  Believe the human race evolved or came about from ape-like creatures

 

Let's look at the above eight beliefs of Theistic Evolutionists/Progressive Creationists briefly:

 

1.  Is nature the 67th book of the Bible?  The answer is 'No', not at all. The Bible is the divinely inspired, inerrant, holy Word of God. It is propositional truth. Creation, on the other hand, is created by God but also cursed by God when mankind sinned and creation is also non-verbal in its communication to us. So, the Bible reveals to us that creation speaks about the existence of God and some of the attributes of God, but it doesn't tell us that we can work out a history of the world just by looking at the creation. We cannot trust what sinful scientists say who are using anti-biblical assumptions to interpret the cursed creation. We cannot trust their interpretation and use that to interpret the Bible. Rather, we use the BIBLE to interpret the world we live in.

 

2.  What about the Big Bang?  Well, the order of events in the Big Bang are absolutely contrary to the order of events in Genesis. Just for one example, the Genesis account says that God created the earth, vegetation, and trees BEFORE the sun, moon, and stars. The evolutionists say exactly the OPPOSITE! (see Genesis 1:9-19) This is choosing to believe science over God and needs to be repented of.

 

3.  What about the theory of 'overlapping days of creation'?  The days of creation are CLEARLY NOT overlapping. God says, FIRST day, SECOND day, THIRD day, FOURTH day etc. These days were also COMPLETED - there were evening and morning for the first day, and there were evening and morning for the second day etc. 

 

4.  Did God create different creatures over millions of years?  Again, God never says this, but on the contrary, as already said: God says that He created everything during the FIRST day, SECOND day, THIRD day, FOURTH day etc. These days were also COMPLETED - there were an evening and morning for the first day, and there were an evening and morning for the second day etc. Never do we read about evolution occurring over millions of years, but instead God referred to His creation occurring in DAYS that consisted of literal 24 hour evening and morning time periods. If creation occurred over millions of years like evolutionists say then they must be accusing God of lying.

 

5.  What about death before the fall?  Well, six times God says "It was good" in Genesis 1 and at the end, He says it was "very good". He tells us that the animals and the people were vegetarians at the end of Genesis 1. Then the JUDGMENT upon sin in Genesis 3 brought a curse to include death on all creation - on the animals, on Adam and Eve, and on the ground. The evolutionists, on the other hand, say there are thorns in rock layers 350 million years old. They tell us there are dinosaur bones with cancer in them.  This contradicts what the Bible teaches. 

 

6.  What about soulless Pre-Adam 'people'?  Well, the Bible doesn't talk about such creatures and there's no scientific evidence because the soul is not preserved in the fossil record. So there's no way you can look at a skeleton that looks like a human being and say that it wasn't a human and didn't have a soul.  (Note: What some people refer to as 'cavemen' were actually men who were referred to as vile debased men in the Bible and 'children of fools' that lived in caves during the time of Job. See Job 30:3-8)

 

7.  What about a local flood?  There's lots of evidence in Genesis that this was a global flood. The purpose of the flood was to destroy not only all of the people but also all of the animals/birds who were not in the ark and the earth itself as Genesis 6 tells us. The purpose o the ark was to save animals, birds, and people. If the flood was local, then the ark was totally unnecessary. The depth of the flood shows that it was global. The water rose above all the high mountains as we read in Genesis 7. Also, the rainbow promise in Genesis 9 tells us that God promised never to send another flood and he made the promise to the animals, and to the birds, and to the earth itself, and not just to Noah. Jesus said, "As it was in the days of Noah, so shall it be at the coming of the Son of Man." That flood was global and affected the whole world and Jesus' coming and judgment will also affect the whole world. 

 

8.  Did the human race evolve or come about from ape-like creatures according to the Bible?  No, not at all and this belief is in direct violation of the truths of the Bible. The Bible clearly tells us that humans were created on the 6th day of creation and that God formed Adam from the dust of the earth and then breathed life into his nostrils (Gen. 2:7) while Eve was formed from one of Adam's ribs while Adam slept. (Gen 2:21-22) Anyone who flagrantly opposes these truths that the Bible clearly teaches about human creation and insists that man evolved instead should really admit that they do not truly believe in God and the Bible. They need to decide if they want to make science their god or the God of the Bible their God.

 

In conclusion - As we can see, people who follow evolution and/or "theistic evolution" are not believing in what the Bible clearly teaches and are walking on some very dangerous ground. People who believe in evolution and still want to claim to be Christians need to decide if they want the error-prone writing of Darwin and evolutionary pseudo-science to be their bible or if they want the holy, inerrant Word of God to be their Bible. Thankfully God has been very patient with our ignorance and rebellion, but it is now time to repent of this evolution deception and get right with God! Revelation 3:19 tells us - "As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten. Therefore be zealous and repent."

 

Humbly ask God to forgive you -  Humbly ask God to forgive you for your prideful rebellion in rejecting God's truths, for your humanistic views, and for twisting of Holy Scripture. Humbly ask God to forgive you of the idolatry of placing the teachings of evolution above the teachings of God since the biblical teachings of creationism stand in stark contrast to the humanistic teachings of evolution. Humbly ask God to forgive you for your belief and promotion of this heresy that has destroyed the faith of countless people. Finally, ask God to forgive you for your disbelief in what God clearly teaches. Tell the Lord that you really want to start trusting in Him and His perfect Word above all from now on. How can we know otherwise if God might not consider us to be unbelievers if we fail to honestly repent? God says very clearly in Revelation 21:8 that the unbelieving will not inherit the Kingdom of God. How is flagrantly denying what God teaches about creation, not disbelief? Also, the Bible teaches that if we take away from the words of His book that God will take away that person's part in the Book of Life (Rev. 22:18-19).

 

Just remember to TRUST GOD and His unfailing WORD - Trust God and not the evolution promoting scientists who may seem so "smart" and like they "have all the answers". Remember that God's Word alone will last FOREVER, but the prideful ways of mankind who reject God and His truths along with all of their deceptive theories will all fade away just as grass and flowers do.  Meditate on these wise words from Peter, "All men are like grass, and all their glory is like the flowers of the field; the grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of the Lord stands FOREVER." 1 Peter 1:24-25

 

Lastly, remember that just because a person puts the word "theistic" before evolution does not make their situation any better with God but probably makes it worse. -  If anything, this only shows that these people should have really known better because they actually claim to know what the Bible says and yet refuse to believe what it says anyway. But take heart for God promises that He gives His grace and forgiveness to the humble. However, be warned that the proud who refuse to repent He will resist. God loves us enough to warn us so let us thank and praise Him for His mercy, patience, and grace toward us!

Theistic Evolution and Christians

The essence of theistic evolution is “God started it all and he is still watching over his creation.” Regardless of any good intentions, theistic evolutionists twist Scripture and weaken the fabric of biblical doctrine.

Theistic Evolution Assumptions

In theistic evolution, the Bible is regarded as a collection of documents which partially contains God’s Word. The Bible thus contains no authoritative, binding truths, but must be freshly interpreted and corrected for every era and in every situation.

God in Evolution?

Christians who adopt evolution are inconsistent because they are accepting the foundation of the humanistic worldviews. Essentially, they are telling God that they believe Him when He told us about the Virgin Birth, Crucifixion, and Resurrection of Christ, but they do not trust Him when He tells us about how He created the world. Is this even truly believing in God?

Compromise in Christian Leaders

Some respected Christian leaders, famous for defending the fundamentals of the faith against compromise, were guilty of their own compromise. None of us, including any particular scholar (no matter how respected he is), or even the majority of scholars or Christians, can be the final authority for determining the truth. God’s Word must be the authority.

The ultimate questions are: Can we believe in evolution and the Bible too? Can we be a true Christian and believe in evolution too?

 

This should be a very important concern to every person who thinks that they can be an evolutionist and believe in the Bible too. As we have clearly read in the information provided above, there is no way that we can rationalize evolution with what the Bible teaches about God's creation in the Bible. There are many people who claim to be Christians who cherry-pick a couple verses from the Bible and say that the only thing one must do to be saved is to believe in God and nothing else matters. However, as we read in James 2:19 that even the demons believe in God and obviously are not saved. A true believer in God has been made born-again according to the Lord Jesus and lives to honor and obey God in all things. He lives to walk in the light and turns away from all ways of darkness.

 

The website Bibleinfo.com shares the following concerning the question if it is possible to believe in evolution and still be a Christian. Concerning this question, Bibleinfo.com responded that "if being a Christian means believing that the Bible is the authentic, trustworthy Word of God and that Christ is our Creator and Savior, then the answer is 'No.' One cannot believe in these things and believe in evolution as the explanation for the origin of life on our earth as we know it." This may sound like a difficult truth to swallow but we have to remember that true prophets of God will always warn people in order to turn them away from the evil of their ways by the Word of God while false prophets encourage sin and lies to continue. True prophets will teach people the truth of God's word concerning creationism and warn people to turn from Darwinian evolution's lies that stand in stark contrast to what the Bible teaches while false prophets will allow these lies to continue. 

 

It is understandable that some people may claim to believe in evolution and God while not fully knowing what evolution actually teaches. God will allow these people to grow and lead these people to the truth to be tested to see if they will continue to stand for the truths of God, or if these people will allow evolution to be their idol and resist the truth. True Christians will change their points of view about evolution, and understand that the Bible clearly teaches that God miraculously created this glorious world! However, if a person is fully aware of what evolution teaches and is fully aware that the Bible teaches the exact opposite concerning so many points of evolution, then how can that person still call himself or herself a true believer? How can a person believe a blatant lie and still claim to love and obey God? 

 

I would be in great fear for my soul when the time of Judgment arrived if I still held solidly firm to the teachings of evolution and stood in firm opposition to what the Bible clearly states about the way that God divinely created the world. When God says that He created the earth before the sun, moon, and planets and yet we still hold on rebelliously to evolution's 'Big Bang Theory' which teaches the exact opposite of this, then how are we not flat out denying God's truths and clearly acting in unbelief? When God says that he created Adam from the dust and that Eve was created from Adam's rib while Adam slept and yet we still hold on rebelliously to evolution's idea that mankind evolved from ape-like creatures, how are we not blatantly refusing to believe in what God said and in the Bible's teachings? Wouldn't evolution's teachings be an idol to us which stood higher to us than God and His Word? 

 

Our God is a very patient and loving God and is giving us all a chance to wake-up and repent. The Lord tells us in Revelation 3:19 that as many as He loves He rebukes and chastens and therefore we need to be zealous and repent. However, to those who forsake God's chastening and refuse His gracious offer to repent, these will be turned away and have their lampstand (light) removed. This is a very serious matter so I hope and pray diligently that all people who still want to cling to evolution's teachings will now wake up and repent before it is too late.

Also, please check out the following videos which give more important insights on this matter.

Evolution is not Compatible with Christianity

Christians Must Never Believe the Evolution Theory!

Another Reason why God Hates the Teachings of Evolution

Another reason why God hates evolution is that humanists will use it to play god in the near future to say that mankind needs to take the "next step in evolution." We need to warn against evolution's false teachings because probably most people who believe in it will be easy prey to merge themselves with machines and "further evolve."

Evolution is a lie from the pit of hell which will take many to hell.

Have you wondered why there is such an extreme push to brainwash the masses to fall for the belief of evolution? This short video will help you better understand what is behind this deceptive movement.

This is an excellent video which clearly teaches that the Darwinian theory of evolution is not a true science by definition but is actually a religion by definition. The reason for this is that in order for something to qualify as science, this has to be gained through observation and experimentation. Since Darwinian evolution cannot be observed or proven through experimentation then it does not qualify as a true science but instead qualifies as a belief system like a religion does.

This video also explains how the "evidence" that is used to try and "prove" evolution is misinterpreted or misleading. It shares the confusing and misleading data surrounding carbon 14 which is used to try and date bones and other archeological finds. The narrator explains that scientists have even found soft tissue in dinosaur bones which gives solid proof that they are not millions of years old. The video shows pictures and carvings in caves from past cultures which show dinosaurs living among humans and it also explains how fossilization does not take millions of years to occur as the evolution theory tries to convince us. The narrator also shows several examples of fraud being used in trying to convince people that humans had evolved from "ape-like creatures."

The bottom line is that Darwinian evolution is not a scientific fact but is much closer to fiction. Darwinian evolution is unscientific, unobservable, unbelievable, but understandable in a world that hates God. You will learn some about why this pseudo-science is so strongly promoted and it will encourage you to do your own research in order to discover the truth.

Some final thoughts from James Perloff...

 

"The Illuminati have long known that if you destroy belief in God, people will cease to fear God and to obey the Ten Commandments. They then become pawns of the Illuminati, willing to serve money instead of principle, and carry out iniquities from sexual misdeeds to even murder.

In the Illuminati propaganda arsenal, the greatest tool for destroying faith in God has been Darwin's theory of evolution. I know some say "I believe in evolution and God." Nonetheless, countless people have become atheists from being taught the theory as "fact" - I was once one of them.

However, Darwinism cannot be challenged on morals alone. The public has been told evolution is "science," on a footing with physics and chemistry. Therefore Darwinism must be challenged on scientific grounds.

As the author of two books on Darwin's spurious theory, I know one cannot discredit, in a few paragraphs, an idea which the Illuminati have spent millions to indoctrinate society with. But let's dent it, shall we?..."

GOD WARNS US TO BE ALERT AND VIGILANT!

"Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. Resist him, steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same sufferings are experienced by your brotherhood in the world." (1 Peter 5:8-9)

For anyone who is having a difficult time understanding the true existence of the Illuminati and how the Illuminati fits in with the forming One World Government then please see the following article on our website called Illuminati EXPOSED!  Also, the following video should answer most of your questions concerning the Illuminati.  

The video will answer questions such as:

  • What does "Illuminati" mean?
  • What are these Illuminati or secret societies' "enlightened" or "illuminated"  deceptive goals and desires?
  • Were there Illuminati ever since the Garden of Eden and ancient times? (This is taught about in great detail from about 5 minutes to about 29 minutes of the video.)
  • How was the Illuminati strengthened in the 18th century? (29 minutes - 39 minutes)
  • When did the "illuminated" first officially choose to be known as the Illuminati? (The answer is on May 1, 1776. At this time an organization officially called themselves the Illuminati and opened its first lodge - see about 34-36 minutes of the video.)
  • How did the Illuminati super-powers of people continue to act and grow in power in the 19th century? (39 minutes - 43 minutes)
  • How did the Illuminati grow in the 20th century and how does this minority elite ruling class seek to control the masses? (43 minutes - 49 minutes)
  • What are some of the most powerful Illuminati organizations? (45 minutes)
  • What are some quotes from the Illuminati elite who admit to their evil Illuminati plans and goals to control the masses? (45 minutes - 49 minutes)
  • What is the Illuminati wickedly planning for the 21st century as they make their once-secret plans more and more open since the world is moving further and further away from true Christianity? (49 minutes - 1 hour and 5 minutes)

Please gain more awareness of how the Illuminati operates since they seek to control the economy, media, education system, entertainment, mainstream religion etc. in order to get control of people's minds and beliefs. This all leads to the ease of controlling people through the fast forming One World Government and eliminating the truths of God's teachings.  

God bless you richly,
