Evolution: The Devil’s Sneak Attack
I can see why some people believe in the theory of evolution. I’m sure it sounds like a semi-plausible explanation to people who have been taught to think that way. Some of us, however, believe that there is a Creator who is all-powerful and all-loving. Give me God over primordial soup any day.
But although the theory of evolution has holes, it may be creating a bigger problem than first meets the eye. Masses of people grow up being schooled in Darwin’s tangential brainstorming while their concept of a Creator God remains severely underdeveloped. I’m betting that some people will choose to believe evolution over creation just because it seems more solid. If someone gets their brain fried on evolution, and only hears bits and pieces of a creation story, it’s only natural that they would go with the theory that they understand the most.
The real problem comes when we try to present the gospel to someone who thinks this way. Imagine the thought process of someone who grows up truly believing that we came from monkeys, and then are told that they are a sinner and need to be saved by the blood of Jesus Christ (let alone the method of delivery–i.e. a Bible-batting street preacher). The gospel would make no sense.
The gospel starts with creation, not with us being sinners. Before someone can understand that they have sinned against God, they need to understand that they have been created by God out of pure love. They need to understand that we were designed to be with God, and that when we messed that up, God came up with a Plan B. Plan B was Jesus. He loves us far too much to let a dirty little snake with no legs get in the way of our being with Him.
