Are Christianity and Evolution COMPATIBLE?

In the words of scripture:


            “(Jesus) is the image of the invisible God, …for by Him were all things created, …all things were created by Him and for him, …and by Him all things consist.”  Colossians 1: 15-17


            As the title of our Creation Study Series suggests, Jesus is our Creator and has always existed.  The Gospel of John declares, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God … All things were made by Him, and without Him nothing was made that has been made.”  John reveals to us that Jesus is the Word.  “And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.”  John 1: 1,3,14


            God the Father declared the deity of Jesus and his role as Creator in the first chapter of Hebrews.  “But unto the Son He (the Father) says:  Your throne, O God, is forever and ever … You, Lord, in the beginning laid the foundation of the earth, and the heavens are the work of Your hand.”  Hebrews 1:8,10


            Unfortunately, many prefer to believe that time plus chance and a few billion happy mutations can do the work of creation without the need for a designer.  As we will learn in next week’s column, evolution removes the whole idea of God as Creator and destroys the very reason for the earthly life and ministry of Jesus.


“He was in the world, and The World Was Made By Him, and the world knew Him not.”    John 1:10
