Ramblings is a collection of writings that tend to ramble on
different topics to spark interest, challenge, and encourage others to research
and think deeper on the issues of life. It is not meant to cause dissension,
arguments, or debates in any way. They are merely points and thoughts to
ponder. The "other side of the
coin" so to speak. A Rambling is not meant to necessarily draw to a
conclusion. It's up to you, the reader to do that.
Can You Really Be A
Christian And Believe In The Evolutionary Theory?
it is very difficult to believe in the Evolutionary Theory and be a Christian.
reasons are the following:
Bible is a spiritual supernatural book written by God through man to be
understood. It is not a bunch of mumbo gumbo and secret stuff even though at
times it might appear that way because we are too lazy to read, pray, obey, and
work at understanding it.
Bible is spiritually discerned. The Holy Spirit is needed to help us understand
Bible can interpret itself. There is no other book needed to help us interpret
it. It can be done inductively.
wants us to understand His Word.
wants us to believe all of His Word not part of it.
is not compatible with the Bible not only in the first 2 chapters of Genesis
but also in other areas of scripture.
believes in Evolution, the first 2 chapters of Genesis have to be questioned
for accuracy and ultimately thrown out.
starts questioning the first 2 chapters of the Bible where does one stop? We
begin to question it and it's accuracy and begin to look at it with doubt and
We can go
through each book of the Bible and in every book there is a supernatural
the more prevalent parts are as follows:
whole creation story. Ridiculous, that can't be proven.
about Noah's flood? How could any person work on a boat for 120 years and it
rain for 40 days and water cover the whole earth? That's ridiculous.
Tower of Babel where the languages and ethnic groups began. How could the
language all at once be changed into many languages out of the clear blue
because a group of people was trying to build a high tower? That's ridiculous.
It can't be explained scientifically.
These were only a few from the book of Genesis.
about the voice that came from the burning bush that was not consumed?
Ridiculous, you got to be kidding me. Who's going to believe that? It can't be
Exodus is full of more weird things that happened.
about Balaam's donkey when he talked to him? Are you nuts? He must have had too
much to drink.
about Jonah and the great fish. Yes, it says fish not whale. How could anyone
live in the belly of a fish for 3 days and come out alive? That's ridiculous.
How could that be?
can go on and on through out the Old Testament. Everything ridiculous, can't be
proven scientifically, or understood logically without God doing it.
by-the-way every time people have tried to get rid of the Bible or disprove it
they have failed. Many times the findings of archeology have proven the Bible
to be true and accurate not the other way around.
the New Testament?
any God come down to earth and be born of a virgin, live a perfect sinless
life, heal people and raise them from the dead, die on a cross for the
forgiveness of our sins, arise bodily from the grave, be seen by over 500
people, be touched and seen eating fish and bread, and arise before their very
eyes bodily into a cloud when he finally left, and said “I’ll be back.”
ridiculous it is if it has to be explained scientifically or by man’s own
understanding. Only a Great and Awesome God can do that.
in Evolution causes God to be small to you. Believing the Bible causes God to be the Great and Awesome God that He
truly is. By-the-way how big or how small is God to you?
you understand why I say it's hard to accept the Evolutionary Theory and be a
If we try
to mix and combine Evolution with the Bible we look at the Bible in a purely
scientific manner where if something can't be explained scientifically or
understood by our own intellect we question it's accuracy and ultimately reject
