I am still certain that most of my Christian friends have not yet understood the full importance of the creation evolution debate. The reason of this certainty is they do not talk about the subject. When the importance is understood, they will talk about it on a regular basis.
EVOLUTION SAYS MAN CAME BY DEATH.
CHRISTIANITY SAYS DEATH CAME BY MAN.
These are totally opposite ideas. The evolutionary idea if true would destroy the Christian idea. The evolutionary idea says over millions of years the death and birth and death and birth of millions of creatures resulted in an upward progression in the animal kingdom to finally result in man. When man finally evolved, death had been around for millions of years. This is scientific nonsense. There is no known process for nature to add information to the DNA molecule that controls the protein synthesis in cell construction. Nature can only damage the DNA with radiation and chemicals. Mutations are almost always harmful. No evolution can be demonstrated as taking place today. For the countless species to have evolved, we should see every animal in a state of evolution (scales turning into feathers etc.) Evolution is not science; it is a religion. A religion for which there is not a shred of scientific evidence to support it. It cannot be observed there are no experiments to demonstrate it, it is only an idea that could not happen.
On the other hand Christianity says death came by man. The Bible says in Genesis 1:31 "God saw all that he had made and behold it was very good and the evening and the morning were the sixth day." So there was certainly no death at the end of the sixth day if everything was very good. Is the Bible even more specific than that? Yes. "FOR SINCE BY MAN CAME DEATH, by man came also the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive." 1Cor. 15:21,22
Christ the Creator died for the death (separation) that Adam's sin brought upon man. If death was not caused by Adam's sin, but had always been here, what could Christ die for? What could his death accomplish? Only the Creator who controls death could die for sin. The Bible must be defended for the gospel to make sense. Satan has attacked our Bible in his clever way with the theory of evolution. This needs to be understood by the Christian church. All we have to do is believe that the Bible is a true simple account of history written by an omniscient God so that we morons can get the message.
If evolution is true there is no gospel. If evolution is true, this life is all there is. If evolution is true the Bible is nonsense. Why is it Christians are silent on this matter? Why do we teach evolution in our government schools with our own tax money? Evolution is a religion and the number one prime religion opposing Christianity today.
