Creation vs. Evolution (Again :/ )

Ultimately, whenever someone brings this topic up, whether Atheist or Christian, it always ends in a torrential flame war where both sides lose sight of the argument, and really just beat a dead horse.

Before you go to the comments and debate to your little hearts content, I have a prompt question for both sides. (You don’t have to comment your answer).

For Christians: Look, I know that the Bible says nothing about Evolution, but think about this for a minute. Which is more important? Proving that Creationism is true and Evolution is false, or sharing the eternal gift Jesus promised to all of humanity. In the end, it’s not gonna matter who was right about how the Earth and Universe started. What will matter is how our friendship with Christ ended up.

P.S. God could’ve used Evolution…..just saying…..

 Romans 10:9-13  9 If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved. 11 As Scripture says, “Anyone who believes in him will never be put to shame.”[a] 12 For there is no difference between Jew and Gentile—the same Lord is Lord of all and richly blesses all who call on him, 13 for, “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”

For Atheists: Let’s say there’s this guy. He’s educated, graduated from high school and college, is a fully functioning member of society, has a family of his own, and has a good job. Does it really matter to you or to him that he’s a Creationist or Theistic Evolutionist? I mean think about. Evolution and Creationism only cover a person’s worldview and the jobs associated with them. Other than that, I’m pretty sure I could go my whole life without needing to know either of them. For example: People who have been taught neither.

Anyway, that’s just my take on it, I guess. Thanks for reading 🙂

  2. Here is why the creation/evolution debate is meaningful – at least to me. To accurately explain the problem of evil. If God used evolution, then death/pain/suffering has always been a part of his “very good” creation – not the result of man’s sin. This makes God the horrible author of all the things atheists try to blame him for. They would be right to blame him! If creation is true – and the world was created perfectly and mankind messed it up, then we are to blame and God’s character remains true to His word. Creation is the only viable option that doesn’t make God out to be creator of death and suffering. It is the only option by which God doesn’t call cancer “very good”. Cancer is found in the fossil record. If the fossil record is before man, the God declares cancer “very good”. If the fossil record was laid down during Noah’s flood, then it is the result of man’s sin leading to the degradation of the human condition. I could go on and on…

    To say that we need to just focus on Jesus is confusing to me because Jesus is the creator. By focusing on creation, I am focusing on Jesus.

    • True, your point is a very good one, and I understand completely. My only point was that we shouldn’t heavily focus on how the Universe came about, but more on a relationship with Jesus. There are some people out there that will believe in God, but not necessarily believe the 7day creation. I’m just hoping people will leave the door open for individuals like that.

      • Thanks! I understand, but as a Christian counselor I see the plethora of people who have lost their faith because of suffering and not knowing how to reconcile that suffering with their faith. In my opinion the church does a great job teaching about salvation through Christ. We don’t do as good at providing answers to the hard questions of life – like this one. Thus we have great numbers of salvations, but very poor numbers of those who stick around.

    • God’s love is evident in evolution and God does blame Himself and the other parts of the Godhead for what has happened. I am reading books channeled from Yahweh and He is saying just that. In fact, He is saying that He has evolved and wants to work to correct His mistakes. Authors who have channeled Yahweh are Ceanne Derohan and Emily Cragg. The series called Right Use of Will Books has much that should be of interest to everyone.

        • btuc,

          I would be very leary of anyone who claims they have channeled or have some special revelation from God.

          God miraculously guided the authors of Scripture to correctly record His message to mankind, while still using their own styles and personalities. The Word of God is living and active (Hebrews 4:12). The Word of God is inspired, profitable, and sufficient (2 Timothy 3:16-17). God determined to have the truth regarding Him recorded in written form because He knew the inaccuracy and unreliability of oral tradition. He also understood that the dreams and visions of man can be misinterpreted.

          God decided to reveal everything that humanity needs to know about Him, what He expects, and what He has done for us in the Bible.

          Anything that contradicts, detracts from, or adds to what God has revealed through His Word is dangerous false teaching that will lead to destruction.

          James
