Therefore, just as through one man sin entered the world, and death through sin, and thus death spread to all men, because all sinned –(Romans 5:12) NKJV
One of the most helpful things for a Christian to know is the context of evolution. The traditional battle lines of the debate have been creation vs. evolution, but that’s a trap designed to distract you from the real issue.
We’re going to show you how to plug evolution directly into the creation narrative and redirect you to where the battle line ought to be: theoretical physics.
We all have the same evidence. Our choice of paradigm determines what we think it’s evidence of.– Matty’s Razor
The simplest way to understand evolution is this:
- IF there was no death before sin,
- THEN there was no evolution before sin.
Devolution started at the fall of man in Genesis 3. It’s a process of corruption and decay, not cleansing and growth. Evolution isn’t part of God’s creative process. It is the consequence of sin entering the world and death by sin. Let that sink in. We can be even more specific about precisely how the process of devolution fits the Biblical narrative.
Devolution is the process of genetic change over time by which the animal kinds saved on Noah’s ark gave rise to the current distribution of biodiversity.– Devolution, context
