Evolution & Christianity...

What is the essence of life here on earth, what do we share with all of the whole of creation?

I heard an interesting quote the other day from an apparent expert on the topic of the theory of evolution and his sudden "anti-evolutionary" view. It went some thing like this;

"One morning I woke up struck me that I had been working on this stuff for twenty years and there was not one thing I knew about it. That's quite a shock to learn that one can be mislead so long...Ive tried putting a simple question to various people: 'Can you tell me anything you know about evolution, any one thing, any one thing that is true?' I tried that question on the geology staff at the Field Museum of Natural History and the only answer I got was silence. I tried it on the members of the Evolutionary Morphology Seminar in the University of Chicago, a very prestigious body of evolutionists, and all I got there was silence for a long time and eventually one person said, 'I do know one thing -- it ought not to be taught in high school.' "

Dr. Colin Patterson, senior paleontologist at the British Museum of Natural History in a keynote address at the American Museum of Natural History, New York City, in 1981.

Consider what Paul says in Acts 17;

Paul then stood up in the meeting of the Areopagus and said: "Men of Athens! I see that in every way you are very religious. For as I walked around and looked carefully at your objects of worship, I even found an altar with this inscription: TO AN UNKNOWN GOD. Now what you worship as something unknown I am going to proclaim to you.

"The God who made the world and everything in it is the Lord of heaven and earth and does not live in temples built by hands. And he is not served by human hands, as if he needed anything, because he himself gives all men life and breath and everything else. From one man he made every nation of men, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he determined the times set for them and the exact places where they should live. God did this so that men would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from each one of us. 'For in him we live and move and have our being.' As some of your own poets have said, 'We are his offspring.'

Do you think Paul can say this about Christianity's "Denominational Divergence" Does history have to continually repeat itself, are we caught in the viscous circle that the author of Ecclesiastes talks about in regards to knowledge? "For with much wisdom comes much sorrow; the more knowledge, the more grief."

What is the grief that he talks of here?

Is it the knowledge of good and evil, and our pitiful attempts to be right with God through religious ceremony that is bereft of the true spirit of God?

The answer lies within the bible and the laws of God which should bring us repentance and the ability to be used in the Kingdom of God. Repent for the Kingdom of God is at hand or you will all answer for your denominational pride, religious sin, blasphemy, denominational arrogance, gluttony and superficiality to just name a few.


The Lord bless and keep you;
The Lord make His face shine upon you,
And be gracious to you;
The Lord lift up his countenance upon you,
And give you peace.
