Christian Embrace Evolution Myth

Is there any reason why a Christian should embrace the Evolution Myth in order to help explain Creation? If not, why do so many do it?

TheSeg, I am quite sure that a hundred years from now, let alone a thousand, I will be totally forgotten, not even in the realm of myth any more. But if my birth and death certificates still exist, I will be technically history! --- Warwick, how you define myth is not how define it. Anyway, I've said enough about it. Blessings to all. :-)
---John.usa on 5/18/11

Again, the question was:

'Why would Jesus bother to quote the genesis acocunt if he himself was "God?"'

Why didn't God just say I did this and that and I expect this?

Because JESUS wanted us to look to the Bible for answers and use it as an authority. Now you did not tell me where amino acids found a semipermiable membrane to survive.

Well about this question Scientist specualte a mars sized planet of just the right size and mass hit earth at just eh right speed and angle so as to double the iron in the center of the earth and create the moon. What are the odds of that happening so perfect?
---Samuel on 5/18/11

John Genesis is written in prose, in historical form. And that is the way Jesus and the apostles regarded it. No hint of myth in His comments. Just the opposite.

When the NT covers Jesus death and resurrection it tells us Jesus came to overturn the effects of Adam's sin. If Adam did not sin, as an historical reality, bringing the literal curse upon the world why did Jesus have to literally die to overturn it?

Was He deluded, giving Himself up to death to save us from something which never historically happened? Or didn't He know it wasn't fact? If so what else did He get wrong?
---Warwick on 5/17/11

John, God bless you man!
But, in a thousand years or two or more will you be myth or history.
I hope they say you were a part of human history.
So now, I guess its up to them, how far apart they put you. Ha ha!
Im joking but I hope you see my point.
Thanks for sharing with me.
Peace Bro.

No it doesn't!

The verse you quoted (Psa 96:10) does not mention, or even imply, geocentrism. The Hebrew for "moved" in this verse (mot) is better translated as "to waver, slip, shake or fall". The implication is stability from earthquakes - not cosmic geocentrism.

Why do you always look for ways to undercut God's Word, and then hide behind an aire of pseudointellectualism?

You and Atheist are on the same team in this regard, but Atheist is the intellectually honest one.
---jerry6593 on 5/18/11

TheSeg, I apologize. I have a very cheap phone here. The q's and g's are very similar. Something that can be documented is history. My birth is documented, so a myth about is unneeded. A myth is to history as a painting is to a photograph. It can convey an even greater truth than a mere snapshot. :-)
---John.usa on 5/17/11

\\No it doesn't! It seems that self is not the only thing you are full of. \\

Yes, it does.

Psalm 96:10
Say among the heathen that the LORD reigneth: the world also shall be established that it shall not be moved: he shall judge the people righteously.

Obviously, you don't know the Bible as well as you claim to, jerry.

Christ is risen!
---Cluny on 5/17/11

Warwick, muddy waters are in the eye of the beholder. No one wrote History in the modern sense back in Bible times. They expressed truths in ways that would be best understood by their readers. Myth is not the same as fiction. But if you don't see it that way, that's okay. I don't mind. I know your faith is strong and you are a believer. No one can argue with that. :-)

John, now please don't be offended.
But, I want to know if you draw a line anywhere.
Would you call the story of your own birth a myth?
Therefore your mother and father are myths.
I just want to understand your definition of myth better.
You would say it is? I think this would clear it up.

It's just that when, most people say myth, its a kind of mix of half-truths.
As you can clearly see by, people reactions.
When you said, the Bible records many myths.
In some places you would be instantly killed.
Most people think God needs our protection.
I don't, I think he speak for everything.
God Bless.
By the way everyone it a "g." TheSeg!
As in, The Segment.

Atheist the First day of the week is Sunday.

You spoke on the boredom of GOD. Where did the amino acids combinations that you believe started all life on earth find semipermiable membranes to keep themselves from dying?

Atheist, long time, no see. Could you by chance be projecting your own sense of boredom onto the God you don't think is there? :-)
---John.usa on 5/17/11

John, Jesus and the apostles, for good reason, considered Genesis to be historical fact, as it is. Why muddy the waters by calling it a myth? Be clear and call it historical reality! But do you believe it to be so?
---Warwick on 5/17/11

Cluny: "jerry, the Bible teaches geocentrism, too."

No it doesn't! It seems that self is not the only thing you are full of.

Atheist: Can't stay away from Christians,eh? Maybe God's trying to get your attention.
---jerry6593 on 5/17/11

Why would Jesus bother to quote the genesis acocunt if he himself was "God?"

Why wouldn't he just say, "After an infinite period of boredom and doing absolutely nothing, I decided to create the heaven and the earth. I finally spoke and said let there be light and there was light. I saw the light was good and much better than the not light or not dark I had been hanging out in. I put the light over here and the dark over there. The light I called "day" and the dark "night," and that is what I did the first day, which was Monday. Any questions? Ask now to avoid any confusion caused by third party interpretations. Please ask away!"

Warwick, I didn't say the accounts were fiction, I said they were myths.
---John.usa on 5/16/11

John the creation acocunt and the other books you refer to are historical reality, not myths. For example Jesus and the apostles quoted from or alluded to the first 11 chapters of Genesis alone 107 times, and always as historical reality. Jesus said that man (male and female) were made at the beginning of creation, just as Genesis says. As Creator He is in a unique position to say-Creation is no myth.

1 CORINTHIANS 3,19 For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with GOD, For it is written, He catches the wise in there own craftiness,
---RICHARDC on 5/15/11


For those who allow for evolution to be part of Gods Plan...

There are NO real transitional life forms in the fossil record!

Also, there is absolutely no scientific evidence of Life spontaneously forming from various chemicals swishing around together.

Also, Warwick is dead on target with his mention of DNA. ALL scientists now agree that DNA is INFORMATION. It is impossible for INTELLEGENT INFORMATION to arise from chemicals splashing around.

Finally, there is the problem of IRREDUCABLE COMPLEXITY. Like the common Mouse Trap, all of the parts of even the smallest bacterium must be fully functional as a unit, and cannot be added piece-by-piece as Darwin wrongly asserted.

---John.usa on 5/14/11

Seq, I am happy you understand.

As regards Romans 1:20 I don't think it tells us to love the physical world but to see it, and what it contains as proof that God is Creator. See Psalm 139:14 "I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made. David is amazed at the body God has given him. Paul in Romans 1:20 says such a creation points directly to God. David got there before Paul!

I believe 1 John 2:15-16 is speaking of a different thing, saying we should not love the world system, or worldliness "the cravings of sinful man, the lust of his eyes...." This isn't the physical world Romans 1:20 speaks about. The world John writes about is the evil of human behaviour.

Peace to you too!

Seq I sometimes find your cryptic prose incomprehensible. Surely sentences are better?

You wrote "I do understand and see what youre saying. As for me, not if its of this world!" What do you mean by this?

Seq, I think you have Romans 1:20 somewhat backwards. "For since the creation of the world Gods invisible qualities- his eternal power and divine nature have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse."

This verse is talking about God's invisible qualities not any invisible things he created, not DNA or atoms.

It tells us that what He created, that which we can see, is proof of His existence. Such strong proof that "people are without excuse."

---TheSeg on 5/12/11

John, we know neither Genesis creation or evolution cannot be proved by operational science. Therefore it is by faith we choose one or the other.

Evolution can properly be described as a myth as it is a purely human construct, the details of which continually change as new information contradicts earlier beliefs. Romans 1:20 says that which God created is visible proof of God's existence. This tells us that the extraordinary, unique, specific, complex genetic information in all life had its origin in supernatural intelligence.

Conversely the evolution myth claims all this information came about by itself.

Certainly we accept creation and the Gospel by faith but it is not a blind faith as is faith in evolution.

---John.usa on 5/12/11

Evolution is based on the premise called Bio genesis where by non living matter became living matter.

One reason that many start to believe in evolution is that it is propgated by many sources by important sounding men and videos that speakd of the importance and how it is a fact. In schools in Texas the Theory of Evolution cannot be questioned. National Geographich stated it was a proven fact.

When I read the Magazine it stated that eveny though 90% of the evidence was misssing they were sure they were correct. I do not think I could convict someone if I was told 90% of the evidence agaisnt them was missing.

Seq, by complexity I was refering to the amazing complexity of God's DNA designs. The massive amount of unique, specific information in even in socalled 'simple' life forms points to a super intelligent Creator, outside the physical sphere. How could such complexity come about by naturalistic random processes? For example (thinking evolution wise) where did DNA come from in the first place. It is not a part of matter, but imposed upon matter, just like computer information is not a part of computer hardware.

Romans 1:20 "For since the creation of the world Gods invisible qualities his eternal power and divine nature have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse."

Seq, when I am explaining the gospel I endeavour to answer any questions.

Of course I always endeavour to discern if the questions are genuine or just red-herrings.

From my experience many nonChristians have closed minds towards Christianity either from a bad experience, prejudice, or antiChristian indoctrination. 2 Corinthians 10:4,5 tells us that the weapons we have are mighty to the pulling down of strongholds. Paul tells us to demolish arguments and pretensions that are set against the knowledge of God. In todays society evolution is a mental stronghold which stops many from taking God's word seriously. I know many people whose conversion followed their being shown that evolution is a belief, not fact.
---Warwick on 5/11/11

When people talk about evolution, I dont argue its points.
If someone wants to believe a rock grows legs.

Sorry again! I have read your comments before, and have been impressed with your insight.
---Lutherist on 5/11/11

Cluny, I did not think I would have to explain. The evolutionary story has three components: billions of years, abiogenesis and microbe to man evolution. Call it what you like but the story falls apart without these. Without billions of years the earth had no time to form naturalistically. Without preexisting matter abiogenesis could not occur. Without the result of this imagined abiogenesis microbe to man evolution would have nothing to work upon.

Even though it is but a human construct, a story, it has to hang together, in some fashion.

Let me step beyond what you can imagine, or 'see' and ask you to demonstrate chaos in God's creation account, in Genesis 1, or anything which lines up with evolutionary theory. Over to you.
---Warwick on 5/11/11

Cluny: Perhaps you should change your closing motto from "Christ is risen" to "Christ has evolved".

Heb 1:2 Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds,

Psa 33:9 For he spake, and it was done, he commanded, and it stood fast.

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 1:22,23 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God ...

Cluny, the moderator is correct. The evolutionary story of life on earth begins with no life at all. From these lifeless chemicals life supposedly appeared. It is of course baseless, non scientific speculation at best. The moderator chose to describe the imagined original chemicals as rocks, and there is no reason that I am aware of which says he should not.

I think it very sad, and revealing when Christians cling to such antiBiblical beliefs. To say that Genesis and the Godless story of evolution follow the same pattern is nonsense.

I believed in evolution for many years and even though I do not believe in it now. I have had to teach how it works.

Some Christians follow a comprimise called intelgent design. In which the evolution was done by GOD.

Standard evolution teaches that all creatures came from a single set of ancestors in the tree of life. That somehow single celled creatures became multicelluar then formed the complex organisms we have today. That instead of us being the creation of GOD we are the result of chance and survival of the fittest that happened over the last 4.7 billion years.

Any evidence opposed to this is suppresed and ignored.

Seq, I think Romans 1:20 answers your question, because the earth is the Lord's and its beauty (that which man has yet to destroy) and its complexity shout God.

What I have seen is that belief in evolution closes people's minds to the possibility of God. Evolution at its core is an anti-God program which teaches people that there is no God, nor any need of God. However because of the work of knowledgeable dedicated Christians evolution has been exposed as a hoax. When people comprehend this their minds are often opened to the possibility that this is God's created world. I have seen many of these people go on to become passionate convinced Christians. And praise God for that.

Donna 66-

(1Jn 3:2) is only puzzling if you are one of those who has believed Satan's lie that you will be just like God (Christ).

At the time of this letter, Jewish Christians were being seduced with several Gnostic heresises. In this verse, John refutes two of these heresises. One is that there is not going to be resurrection of our human bodies, and the other is that Christ never had a real human body.

Here, John declares that, although he doesn't know exactly what our resurrected bodies will look like, he is sure that they will look exactly like Christ's resurrected body. And, when Christ returns, we will see Him as he is, God Almighty in a real body of flesh and bone.
---Lutherist on 5/9/11

You may be right. It might be very easy. I know the Jew believed in him, because of Adam!
I dont know, but I imagine Adam must have spoke about him.
So the Jew had a firsthand account!
Rom 1:19 - for God hath shewed it unto them.
And we, if we believe scripture, kind of have a firsthand account.
But not without God!

But what about the rest of the world are there any other people.
Who believe God as creator of the world?
Not created with the world, nor created right after the world?
But a God, who excited before the world, then creates the world.

Im just saying can a man come to God without God?
To me the answer is, no.

I'm not convinced that as many Christians "embrace" the evolution myth, as it seems.
Creationism has been derided for so long, many Christians hesitate to defend it...or at least they don't want to argue every time the subject comes up.
The Word of Faith teaching in particular elevates man to the position of almost a "co-creator with God". They "demand" from God what they think they are entitled to as believers.
That is heretical. Yet, there is this verse... a bit puzzling.
to me.

Seq, I think it is easy to believe in God as Creator and Scripture agrees "For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities--his eternal power and divine nature--have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse."

God created in 6-days and rested the 7th commanding Israel to do likewise. Many still live this. Even non believers live a 6-day week-an excellent testimony to Gods 6-day creation.

I believe people uncritically accept evolution by faith because most have been force-fed evolution and the Church has been too asleep, too lazy, or too compromized to loudly, knowledgeable and confidently proclaim the Truth.
---Warwick on 5/9/11

Hey This is a NO-BRAINER!

Most Christians can easily believe in and teach a scientific evolutionary process as part of Gods plan, because most Christians already believe in their own personal evolution into Christs holy likeness. However, this Satanic lie which is nowhere taught in Scripture, actually diminishes Christs uniqueness in their heart, dishonors his finished work, and exalts their own false divine potential. Christ is our great God a Savior... WE ARE NOT!

Jesus did indeed promise many times that we would be WITH Him (Lk 23:43) (Jn 12:26) (Jn 14:3) (Jn 17:24) (1Thes 4:17) (2Tim 2:11) (Col 3:4) (RE 21:1-7). But, He never promised us that we would be LIKE Him SATAN DID!! You will be like God! (Ge 3:5)

Because its not easy to believe in the things God has said.
God said he did it in six days. Well look around you!
Does anything, anywhere look like this is true?
God said he will send them strong delusion.
Well, it doesnt get any stronger then everything around you does it.
The lord said no one can come to me less the father draw him.
And many say people choose not to believe God. Yea ok!

How can anyone believe him unless God make you believe?
Oh yea I forgot, God doesnt make anyone do anything, the free will thing.
Some blame these people for not believe. I dont blame them, I understand them.
And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion.

No. There is no reason why any Christian should embrace the Evolution myth of origins. First, why. Because it does not glorify God as the Creator. It does not allow the Bible to remain the inerrant word of God. It challenges man's inner nature where evolution says we are just a product of random design where God's says we are fearfully and wonderfully made, we were thought of, God has a plan for each member of the human race. In evolution there is no plan

Now why do so many Christians embrace it? Because of lack of knowledge the people perish. Because they believe more in the doctrines of man than in the Living Word of God. It is simply a matter of faith!

I believe that GOD created everything. And equipped them with whatever they needed for living: Human Beings, Animals, Insects, Plants, Fish, etc.

GOD created the Earth too, but it is constantly changing: Volcanic Eruptions, Earthquakes, Droughts and Floods, etc. I wouldn't consider those changes to be Evolutionary.

I think that many Christians rely upon the Evolution Myth to try and explain these changes. Without any Biblical significance.

Actually, the Bible DOES talk about these changes in Matthew 24:7, Luke 21:11, Mark 13:8. SIN is what brought this all about. Read Romans 5. Until Jesus Christ returns, the world will continue to see these miserable events.

Jerry from my experience the main reason many Christians accept microbe to man evolution as fact is that they are indoctrinated with it, almost from birth. For example when was the last time you watched a nature documentary on TV which gave glory to God as Creator? Quite a while/never?

Add to this churches which teach the unknowing that God could have used evolution, that evolution is compatible with Genesis creation. What is the result? Christians who accept evolution. How sad.

But then there was Professor Rick Smalley (awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry) an evolutionist, who was challenged to investigate evolution and like many other scientists found it to be a lie. We obviously have no need to believe a lie.

The Bible's Creation account is incompatible with the man-made philosophy/theory of evolution.

'For his invisible qualities are clearly seen from the worlds creation onward, because they are perceived by the things made, even his eternal power and Godship, so that they are inexcusable... Although asserting they were wise, they became foolish and turned the glory of the incorruptible God into something like the image of corruptible man and of birds and four-footed creatures and creeping things.'

Those who deny the creative activity of God, turning the glory of God into the image of 'birds' and 'animals', as Paul said are 'foolish'.

Romans 1:20,22,23.
