RAMBLINGS

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.

Theistic Evolution
What is it? Should we as Christians consider it?

This is a subject on which a whole book could be written but hopefully some insight can be gotten from this Rambling.

Theistic Evolution is very basically the belief that God had to use evolution to create the universe. It comes in a number of forms. One of these is called Progressive Creationism where God needs time to do His creation. At the present time most evolutionists seem to agree with their "Big Bang" theory.

Theistic Evolution is dangerous because that is what most Evangelical Christians tend to believe if they are not sure about evolution and what it all really entails. They are trying to mesh their theology with evolution. They know they should agree with the bible but then scientists (who should know all !!! ???) say otherwise so they try to combine them. One of the main and many vehicles they use to do this is by saying that the 6 days of creation were not 24 hour days. They could have been any amount of eons of time.

The other vehicles that cause doubt and unbelief will be addressed in future Ramblings.

Based on the above precepts here are Some Rambling Thoughts:

Genesis 1:1-3 "In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
And the earth was formless and void, and darkness was over the surface of the deep; and the Spirit of God was moving over the surface of the waters. Then God said, "Let there be light"; and there was light."

What did God say? He said, "Let there be light"... He spoke His creation into existence. He didn't say KABOOOOOM !!!!!!

Hebrews 1:3 "Who being the brightness of His glory, and the express image of His person, and upholding all things by the word of His power, when He had by Himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high;"

  1. God is not dependent on time. He transcends time. He does not need time. He is beyond the physical restraints of time. He himself created time. Time is only relative to His creation.


  2. Theology and evolution are incompatible because they are contradictory. Theology says there is a creator and evolution says it all happens over time by chance.


  3. God is beyond light. He is Light. Therefore, if God is infinite and He is light then light at the beginning probably had an infinite speed and has been slowing down over time. Science is already proving that light is slowing down. He created the universe with physical laws that are not available today. That is why God is omnipresent, omnipotent, and omniscient.


  4. II Timothy 3:16 "All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness."
    That is what the scriptures say about itself. So what do we leave out? What do we believe or choose not to believe?


  5. We either have to choose to believe it all or we have to choose to not believe any of it.


  6. If we start to not believe part of scripture where do we stop in our unbelief?


  7. We must choose to believe all of scripture because if we don't we erode and water down the Authoritative Word of God.


  8. Consider this. Evolution says that man is the highest and last on the evolutionary chain. The highest evolved. Creationism says that God created man on the 6th day. The last of His creation.


  9. Evolution requires death for it to occur.


  10. The bible says that sin came into the universe when Adam & Eve sinned not when the first cell sinned.


  11. Death could not have been happening in the world eons ago causing evolution to take place because death only entered the world after Adam & Eve sinned which would have been after evolution was finished taking place or at least at it's highest level. ( This sentence is an example of a TRUE Rambling. )


  12. See the conflict? That is why the 6 days have to be literally 24 hour days.


  13. The universe is no more than 6000 or 7000 years old.


  14. Psalms 19:1 "The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth His handiwork."...
