Athiests or evolutionists who flat out reject God and Creation is one thing, God have mercy on them and open their blind eyes, but what is worse yet is that there are now many “professing Christians” who are trying to mingle evolution with creation.
Evolution is the Devil’s work, it’s no different than when he said to Eve, “hath God said?” The late, great, Dr. Adrian Rodgers said, “The Devil doesn’t want to persecute the Church, he wants to join it.”
If you take a hard stand against evolution you will be rebuked by “professing Christians” for it. They say, “Just because I’m a Christian doesn’t mean I have to reject science.” What they mean is, “I can believe in evolution and in God.” Yes, the demons also believe in the one God and tremble. (James 2:19) I believe that they use the term “don’t have to reject science” rather than “I can believe in God and in evolution” because the latter is just a little too obvious that they really don’t believe in the “Sovereign” Creator God that the Bible testifies of. In Isaiah 43:10 God says of His sovereignty, “Before me there was no God formed neither shall there be after me.” You can’t fool God with a little twist of words? 1 Samuel 16:7 says: “For man looketh on the outward appearance, but the Lord looketh on the heart.” I have to ask myself the question too, am I trying to hide something from God? Psalm 139 testifies of God knowing our inner most being. Also, you can’t believe in evolution and God because evolution is the Devil trying to sabotage God’s work and you can’t serve God and the Devil. You serve God or the Devil.
This mixing of truth and error causes baby (new) Christians to stumble in their walk with Christ. Jesus said, “Who so shall offend (cause to stumble) one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea. (Matthew 18:6) What a sobering and stinging statement that is!
If you are one who is standing up for Christ and His infallible word and are experiencing push back and hostility from people all around you, even professing Christians; take courage brother, take courage sister, “Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven.” (Matthew 5;12) And also Brethren, thank God that we have His Word for a firm and steadfast foundation so that we don’t have to be blown about by the wind of every strange doctrine that comes along. His word is able to stand entirely on its own from Genesis 1:1 to Revelation 22:21.
If you are one of those who are mingling evolution with creation, you are doing the Devil’s work and I would be doing you, and God, a disservice to tell you otherwise. I don’t know if you never were a real Christian or if you are a backsliden Christian. Either way God is inviting you back to Himself. “Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” (Matthew 11:28) 1 John 1:9 says, “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins.” Acts 16:11 says, “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt be saved.” Believing on Jesus means agreeing with Him that you are a sinner, repenting of your sin, trusting in His blood atonement on the cross as payment for your sins, and receiving His forgiveness by faith. He “was delivered for our offenses and was raised again for our justification.” (Romans 4;25) But it will be like in the days of Noah. Noah’s ark is a type of Christ and just like Noah’s ark, people had opportunity to come into the ark but they refused until the door was shut and it was too late. Friend, the door is open right now. “Today is the day of salvation.” (2 Corinthians 6:2). Don’t wait for a convenient time, because that time will never come.
