Perhaps the biggest compromise for Christian leaders is that
of Theistic evolution - the idea that God created the world, but used the
evolutionary process. This is not what Genesis says or allows. It is also out
of keeping with the revelation of God in Christ Jesus. Would He use such a
cruel, inefficient and wasteful process as evolution?
May I remind my readers that the mechanism for Evolution is
Natural Selection, survival of the Fittest, adaptation, mutations (which are
random mistakes or abnormalities) and that death is an integral part of the
process! The late Carl Sagan, the evolutionist, whose programmes were
constantly presented on TV, said, 'it is only after the death of millions of
inferior creatures that you and I are here'.
The Bible depicts death as a curse because of man's sin.
Jesus came to destroy 'him who has the power of death. Christians
joyfully declare that Jesus is Lord of Life and Death and 'has the keys of
death and hell. Death was not part of Creation's mechanism.
