Is refuting evolutionism important for the believer, or is it ok to side step over this issue?
First, let me say that every member of the body of Christ has its own individual calling, their own unique gifts that enable them to perform that calling. I am not asking the question ‘should you, personally, be blogging about creationism as a Christian?’. What I am asking is whether or not evolutionism is a stronghold that needs to be taken down.
I believe it is, and I also believe it’s imperative for the body of Christ to be made aware of the dangers lurking behind deep time.
Why is it so dangerous? Mostly because our students are not being taught that evolutionism is a possible means for the origin of our universe, but that it is certain fact. For decades now generation after generation was inundated by evolutionary falsehoods passed off as fact, refuted quietly some time after being taught in biology. I mentioned a few of those here.
I have spoken to many hurting people who were in church but found themselves unable to continue going after they became adults because the ‘scientific evidence’ was too overwhelming.
This insidious deception has made its way into the church as well, as wolves crept into lead believers astray. These wolves convince believers not to take the Bible seriously, it’s just a book like any other, full of fairy tales.
These two points make evolutionism a stronghold, and we are commanded as followers of Christ to tear down every high and lofty idea that sets itself up against God. I encourage you, friends, to get informed on this issue. Is it important for the believer to be able to refute evolutionism? Absolutely, someone’s soul might one day be riding on your ability to answer. Creation.com is an excellent place to start, they have a magazine and creation magazine live which gives a summary of the articles written. Be good Bereans, brethren, and study to show yourselves approved.
