Reasons that Evolution is Bad Theology – 8-10

8 ) Evolution denies several points about God’s character that the Bible teaches to be true. Evolution denies the necessity of God, by making his involvement in creation unnecessary, hence Richard Dawkins makes the claim that Darwinism “made it possible to be an intellectually fulfilled atheist”. It further denies the Holiness of God, by denying there was a fall of man through sin, and therefore giving no need for man to be redeemed. It denies the Righteousness of God by denying He judged the earth with a worldwide flood, as he claimed, and it denies the Sovereignty of God by denying him the exercise of his power at Babel, when he confused the languages of the earth.

9) Evolution denies the Resurrection. The Apostle Paul explains in 1 Corinthians 15 that ‘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 . . . And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit’. If there was no sin and death in Adam there is no reason to believe there will be a resurrection to defeat death, as the Bible explicitly links the two. For the Gospel to be historically true, the account of Adam and Eve must also be historically true.

10) Paul, in the New Testament, specifically made the point that men are not the same flesh as animals, but evolution requires both men and animals to share a common ancestor (1 Corinthians 15 v 39).
