Evolution states that the environment creates change.
So if we believe in the whole Evolution concept then, we would believe these things:
- That natural selection happens.
- The fittest and best adapted creatures and plants increase.
- That there were multitudes of chance happenings over millions of years.
- All these wonderfully diverse insects, mammals, fish, and plant life have evolved from simple molecules, without God.
By promoting evolution God is removed from the picture.
The world around us is no longer created by a Superior Being, but it is self contained, and self sufficient.
Everything to create life, and sustain life (so they reckon) is already here.
By removing God from our world, we remove any requirements and expectations that God puts upon us.
Then there is no need for us to surrender to the great Creator, the all sustaining God.
Unbelieving people find that this eases their conscience.
Evolution attacks the main witness for God:
This witness speaks 24 hours a day, and in every country in the world and has borne witness to the Creator God, ever since the world began.
What is this witness?
The created world, because the Psalmist wrote:
“The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they display knowledge.” Psalms 19:1-2 (NIV)
This witness says “All this is made by God!”
So man has put in a louder voice that shouts out: “All this, by chance.”
For 1000’s of years this witness has stood, proclaiming the Truth about the Creator and Sustainer of all things.
Suddenly that witness has been challenged, and many people have judged it to be a false witness, and they have stopped listening to that witness.
That is how important the subject of Evolution is when it is blindly accepted without question.
