Theistic Evolution

This area was ‘created’ to assist those who may be unsure about the danger of TE to one’s faith

Those who preach TE, maintain that you can accept TE and still believe in the bible, when in fact – one soon realizes that to accept TE as a belief system, one must start to discount other parts of scripture as just stories or not actually inspired. The current trend in popular thinking that all living things evolved through random modification and subsequent natural selection is incorporated into the TE belief. It an attempt to combine the Creation and Evolution theories. Theistic evolutionists believe the Bible is the inspired word of God, yet also believe man’s existence on Earth to be derived from millions of years of evolution.

 
We consider the philosophical and theological credibility of ‘Theistic Evolution’ with particular emphasis on the inspired word of God as our guide.

Theistic Evolution (TE/GDE/ec) vs Creation Videos

God the Creator The Bible opens with God describing His creation of the heaven and the earth, and throughout the rest of the Scriptures, His supreme position as the Creator and Sustainer of the universe is set before us. God is from everlasting to everlasting, all-powerful and all-wise, a living God Who takes care of, and delights in, all that He has made: • “In the beginning, God created the heaven and the earth” (Gen. 1:1) • “When I consider Thy heavens, the work of Thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which Thou hast ordained . . .” (Ps. 8:3) • “He hath made the earth by His power, He hath established the world by His wisdom, and hath stretched out the heavens by His discretion” (Jer. 10:12) • “Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them” (Mt. 6:26)

It is a common challenge for the modern Christian to unify his belief in the Bible, which describes God as the Creator of all, with the current trend in popular thinking that all living things evolved through random modification and subsequent natural selection. The commonly resulting belief is “Theistic Evolution”: an attempt to combine the Creation and Evolution theories. Theistic evolutionists believe the Bible the inspired word of God, yet also believe man’s existence on Earth to be derived from millions of years of evolution.

We consider the philosophical and theological credibility of ‘Theistic Evolution’ with particular reference to the origin and development of Man.
