Genesis One


A question was posed to me today. It was "Can you be a evolutionary creationist and still be a christian"?

Re: Genesis One


Anything is possible! I graduated didn't I?

Yes, but I have never been able to follow the logic of those that make this claim.

Re: Genesis One


I guess you need to define evolutionary creationist.

As I understand the phrase a "evolutionary creationist" is someone that says they believe God created everything. They also claim that during creation God also put into place the "evolutionary mechanisms" that science says exists.

I don't buy it Pastor. The Bible tells us God created man in his likeness, it does not say God created slime to evolve into his likeness. A Christian believes the Bible to be the word of God. As a Christian you do not add to the Word what you want because you don't believe a certain part. Beside that if evolution were a part of Gods work in creating human there would not be a missing link. OK. Got that out of me.
See ya

Hi Free04,

hehehe I didn't say I agreed with the idea but you did ask emoticon

However you did miss a major point concerning this theory. The creation-evolutionist make it very clear that God created everything just as Genesis One says and this includes all the plants, animals and man. Under this theory the evolutionary mechanisms were created at the same time this happened so change on the macro-evolutionary scale was only possible after that time.

Re: Genesis One


I don't believe in evolution period. God created man, from man came woman and from woman and man comes more human life as the Bible tells us. IF God created Macro-evolution (Large scale) It could be proven because God would allow it.IT is still theory. I believe God is in control of everything,even science. If man was to prove the theory of evolution or its mechanisms could created life, there would be no need for God would there?

Maybe the question I should have asked is define a Christian?

As you can see I am not a scientist, and I believe it takes more faith to believe that the wonderful creation of earth and man came from nothing than it does to believe in God and the Bible.

Does that make sense to you? emoticon

I do not believe in macro-evolution either (at least not as science defines the term). Don't worry Free, I am not trying to convince you that this theory is correct I am just telling you what it is to the best of my knowledge.

That one is easyemoticon A christian is one who believes on the Lord Jesus Christ as his/her personal savior and does his/her best to follow him.

Amen brother!

Amen brother Free!


"Can you be a evolutionary creationist and still be a christian"?


2Co 10:15 So we do not boast about the work that others have done beyond the limits God set for us. Instead, we hope that your faith may grow and that we may be able to do a much greater work among you, always within the limits that God has set.

2Jo 1:9 Anyone who does not stay with the teaching of Christ, but goes beyond it, does not have God. Whoever does stay with the teaching has both the Father and the Son.


Theistic evolution is man's wisdom, period. If one believes this theory, his faith is without works. His faith is dead.
Man may be comfortable and cozy now with his answers to "how", but will Jesus find faith in him, when He returns for His bride?


One thing's for sure, if one claims to be a Christian and walks in theory, pondering it's ideas, as opposed to walking in Christ, that one should question his faith and where he is putting it. We should encourage each other in faith, not man's wisdom.
Luk 18:8 I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?

Luk 22:32 But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not: and when thou art converted, strengthen thy brethren.


To answer the question:
You cannot serve two Gods. You either "are" a Christian/living according to the gospel of Christ, or you are not.


Hope I don't sound "hissy" hehehe, emoticon but there it is. God bless...

NO worry Pastor, as you become to know me you will find I'm pretty stubborn when it comes to my Faith.
