Evolution - RS

Extracts from this document...


A Christian cannot believe the creation story and theory of evolution. Do You Agree? Somebody may believe to be a Christian and an evolutionist, but this position is biblically and scientifically flawed. Jesus taught a literal view of Genesis, all the way through the Gospels He justified His doings by making reference to a literal Old Testament. Unbelievers get stumped on a simple question: "who came first 'the chicken or the egg'?" because of their evolutionary beliefs they just do not know, but for believers it is simple and can answer: "the chicken", for God created Adam and Eve and all the animals as fully-grown up.

(Gen 2:7) A human being IS an eternal soul. This life is the beginning, not the end. Heaven, Hell, an Eternal relationship with God, are all fundamentals of our faith based upon this truth, and taught by Christ.

Human beings, from the beginning, are presented as being quite distinct and different from anything else For the Christian, surely this makes belief in man evolving from an animal, impossible. In today's Christianity many are disregarding passages and changing the Bible as they wish. The problem with that is that different people disregard different parts of Scripture and then we end up in a situation that nobody knows what is reliable and what is not. The whole package must be accepted as true, the way it is, as the breathed Word of God. ...read more.
