Theistic Evolution

Theistic evolution is the theory that God created the world by means of organic evolution. It rejects the Bible account of creation recorded in Genesis and in so doing, rejects Christ Who endorsed the Genesis account. Christ commended the first chapters of the book of Genesis when he said, "but from the beginning of creation God made them male and female" (Mk. 10:6; Matt. 19:4-5).

Furthermore, if the first man existed as a little one-cell creature, he was not a creature of any sex. In that case they (i.e., man and women) did not begin as Christ said they did. Theistic evolution overthrows faith in Christ and thereby overthrows faith in Christianity; Theistic evolution is a deadly enemy of Christ and Christianity, denials notwithstanding.
