CREATION OR THEISTIC EVOLUTION???
Does it really make any difference what someone believes as long as God gets some credit for doing it? I suppose that would depend on your view of God. I figure there are many who have not thought the whole thing out. They have been taught that evolution is true beyond any doubt, and they have just accepted that.
What is theistic evolution?
It is the teaching that a Christian can believe Darwinian evolution, that we are the offspring of a frog that evolved into a monkey that became a human being, or as it is in a fairy tale, Prince kisses frog and BAM the frog becomes a beautiful queen, evolution just removes the bam and inserts a few million years in its place.
For information on creation and why it makes sense to reject evolution read my blog on it at, https://donoterr.wordpress.com/creation/
Darwin got the whole atheistic evolution thing going when he published “Origin of Species” on November 24, 1859. Before that the only answer to the question, “how did we get here?” was God. There was no other credible answer. But Darwin changed all of that. Now the answer is evolution.
Atheist were thrilled as well as other reprobates as they now had something to build their FAITH ON. Yup “faith”, evolution is now a religion taught and practiced by all government funded educational institutes, some have a higher priority than others but all believe it and teach it. In fact creationism has been classified as a Christian myth that only uneducated ignoramuses believe. That be me. And I might be stupid but I am not crazy enough to label God a liar.
I wrote that it takes faith to believe in evolution because no one knows for sure if it is true. Regardless of what they teach, evolution is only a hypothesis, at best. And for those who believe God, evolution is not only a lie but a satanic doctrine that is destroying the fabric of what the American flag stands for, and corrupting it with the pleasures of sin, in the disguise of toleration. As Christians we must NEVER TOLERATE anything God has condemned in Scripture. We must always hate the sin BUT LOVE THE SINNER BECAUSE Jesus loves him and wants to see him/her saved and living a Christian life.
THE REDEEMED SHOULD HATE THE TEACHING OF EVOLUTION AND FIGHT IT EVERY CHANCE WE GET.
Bible proof for rejecting evolution is found in Romans chapter one verse 23 but read all the following verses and the rest of the chapter on your own. The thing to notice is that when a country rejects creationism for evolution “God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:”
Rom 1:19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.
Rom 1:20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
Rom 1:21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
Rom 1:22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
Rom 1:23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.
Rom 1:24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:
Rom 1:25 Who changed the truth of God [the King James Bible] into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
God turns those who accept evolution over to homosexuality. Which today is a rite of entrance into a tolerant society that will put up with anything except the Lord Jesus Christ.
After Darwin published his “Origin of Species” many theologians bought into it. And many clergymen started teaching theistic evolution. Promoting a theology of an indirect creation. That it was okay to agree with science and today theistic evolution is a popular doctrine, as it seemed to bridge the gap between the question “How did man get here?” God still did it only by indirect means. POPPYCOCK
Let me caution you about Christian instincts to make God look good and just to the world. STOP MAKING EXCUSES FOR GOD. JUST BELIEVE THE BIBLE and learn it so you can teach it to others. THAT IS EVERY BLOOD PURCHASED, BORN AGAIN, DISCIPLE OF THE LORD JESUS DUTY.
2Ti 2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
Most Americans are now, today, dues paying members of the atheistic evolution club. I don’t even think they realize that they are atheistic in thought, word and deed. That is how much we Christians have failed our Lord and saviour Jesus Christ, in thought, word and deed. That is also why America has little to no moral standards today. Stop blaming Hollywood for the antichrist, immoral condition of America, Hollywood is just giving us what we want.
When you take God out of the equation for good behavior then you have spiritual anarchy or as God tells it in Judges 17:6
In those days there was no king in Israel, but every man did that which was right in his own eyes.
If you read Judges you will find that Judges 17:6 and 21:25 was a death sentence for Israel. And in reading Judges you should easily see the similarities between then and America today.
The people of “faith” who refuse to denounce evolution are as follows in a copied paragraph below.
“The following individuals—respected authors, Bible scholars, scientists, pastors, linguists, and more—hold to a diversity of views on the timing of God’s creation. And yet all have affirmed, in documented sources, that an ancient universe and Earth (including big bang cosmology) pose no threat to Christian orthodoxy, but rather may be considered plausible and valid interpretations, even literal interpretations, of the biblical text. Not one sees the question of age as a crucial doctrinal issue.”

For those who wonder why some such as
C.I. Scofield are on the list they should click on the web address and check it out. How anyone can get around Mark 10:6 is beyond me.
Mar 10:5 And Jesus answered and said unto them, For the hardness of your heart he wrote you this precept.
Mar 10:6 But from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female.
God hates spiritual cowards and when leaders, and educators choose to believe and preach theistic evolution they are not only wrong but also, if they have been born again, spiritual cowards. If they don’t know any better than that is because they have lost contact with the Spirit of truth. And that is their fault not God’s.
John 14:16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;
Joh 14:17 Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.
Rev 21:8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
Revelation 3:15 I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot.
Rev 3:16 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.
Rev 3:17 Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:
I believe that every born again Christian should shout out truth. People both saved and lost will get the truth if they are looking for it no matter how it is presented. The Holy Spirit will see to that. And absolute truth is found in the King James Bible. How can anyone get around Genesis chapter one and still consider themselves Bible believers?
I remember hearing my, then, pastor tell us that he was going to a university working on some sort of degree. He knew that if he was to pass the science course he needed to write what was expected of him. And that was a pro-evolution paper.
He told the instructor about his belief in creation but also that he respected him and would give him what he wanted. But he told him in a tone not to be forgotten I don’t believe a word of it. He was non-combative about it and they had many after class discussions. In the end that teacher became a born again creationist.
Don’t be an arrogant Christian stay humble and prayed up perhaps you also will win over a devout evolutionist.
One way “Christians” dump creation for evolution is by using the allegorical interpretation of Scripture. Origen in the early 3rd century taught that Scripture doesn’t say what it means nor does it mean what it says. He taught that the Bible is written in stories that teach hidden lessons, and therefore it makes no difference if it happened or not. The hidden message is what really matters. Using Origen’s logic Genesis one is not to be taken literally. How convenient is that? If you want a lie God will give you that also.
Origen was every bit as destructive to advancing the kingdom of heaven as athestic evolution is. He supplied a way to get around the clear teaching of creation in Genesis one and all other passages that taught it.
Origen lived from 162A.D. to 254A.D. in Alexandria Egypt. He taught the allegorical method of Bible interpretation. That is the doctrine that the Bible does not mean what it says nor says what is always true. The Bible consists of stories and passages that teach a secret message. Therefore it makes no difference if the stories are true or not. It is the underlying message that counts.
Origen is one source that modern theology professors turn to, to support their rejection of the King James Bible. I kid you not check it out. Westcott and Hort are the foundation for EVERY modern Bible in print today and they both were dedicated fans of Origen’s allegorical method of interpretation.
One more thing; in order to believe in atheistic evolution renamed theistic evolution by the super duper intellectual religious crowd, you must also reject a 6,000 year old earth as taught in Scripture and instead buy into the earth being millions of years old.
There are many Christian professors and scholars who believe and teach that the earth is six thousand years old and reject the million year old earth hypothesis. I believe the earth is 6,000 years old because the Bible teaches it, and that my dear reader brings us to the GAP THEORY.
Many solid Christian scientists and preachers agree with Henry Morris that the gap theory is a type of theistic evolution. I disagree. I am not saying I think that the gap theory is true only that it is biblical, and therefore we should take it under consideration.
Those who propose it are mostly solid, Bible believing, fighting, fundamentalists, who would never compromise Scripture for anyone or for any reason. So it makes no sense to compare the gap theory with the compromise of theistic evolution.
The GAP THEORY is the belief that there is a gap of unknown time in Genesis 1:2
Gen 1:1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
Gen 1:2 And the earth was without form, and void; [the semi colon is of undetermined length of time perhaps as much as millions of years] and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
Gen 1:3 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.
The teaching is that after Genesis 1:1 something happened. The earth was populated with another race or perhaps angels. In any case they rebelled – that is sinned – against God and the sin was such that God shut down this part of the universe and caused the earth to become without form and void.
One reason to think that, is why did God not make the earth perfect? Why make it without form and void? The answer is God did make it perfect but sin destroyed it.
I am going to quote from Ruckman’s study Bible notes on Genesis 1:2
“Often miscalled “the gap theory” What takes place in verse 2 is historical and takes place after 1:1. There is no theory to it. The Institute for Creation Research has failed to observe that the word “AND” occurs at the beginning of every verse in the chapter down to verse 31 (with the exception of vs. 27), and not one time in thirty-one verses does it refer to the verse before it. The silly teaching that verse 2 refers to verse 1 violates the entire chapter of 31 verses.
According to 2nd Peter 3:5-6, the world was drowned out many, many hundreds of years before the Noahic flood occurred. Notice further “THE DEEP” is no reference to any kind of a “canopy” at all. It’s a reference to a body of water which now exists above the solar system – Psalm 148:4 (see Job 26:10, 37:18, 38:30). It is the frozen “sea of glass” at absolute zero, described in the book of Revelation 4:6 and 15:2. This is the “deep freeze” which Amana copied for a trade name – Song of Solomon 4:8. Dry ice burns like fire.”
The gap theory is not a vital doctrine. If it interests you then have fun with it. Just don’t get serious about it as some others do. G.H. Pember wrote a book on it “Earth’s earliest Ages” that would be a place to start.
Anything that will get you to study your King James 1611 Bible is a good thing. The King James Bible is truth but man is a liar.
God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged.
And Romans 14:4 – 5
Who art thou that judgest another man’s servant? to his own master he standeth or falleth. Yea, he shall be holden up: for God is able to make him stand.
Rom 14:5 One man esteemeth one day above another: another esteemeth every day alike. Let every man be fully persuaded in his own mind.
Untill next time keep your powder dry and
obey 1st Peter 3:15
But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:
