“Will a person who believes in
evolution be saved?”
A brother in faith sent us this very timely question about evolution:
“Will a baptized member of the INC who believes in evolution be saved?”
In Biology, one of the meaning of the word “Evolution” is “change in the gene pool of a population from generation to generation by such processes as mutation, natural selection, and genetic drift” (http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/evolution). Thus, “Evolutionary process give rise to diversity at every level of biological organisation, including the level of species, individual organisms, and at the level of molecular evolution” (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Evolution).
This include the belief that “the world is 4 billion years old, and from the primodial sea life arises from non-living matter, thus came the simple cell; this simple cell evolved into complex cell which evolved into fish which evolved into amphibian which evolved into reptile which evolved into bird which evolved into mammas; and from the first mammal came different species of mammal,hence, through evolutionary process that took billion of years came the modern man.”
This belief contradicts the teachings written in the Bible. The Bible exlicitly says that the Alimighty God created all things in six days (Genesis chapter 1). Thus, when a person believes in “evolution,” he held belief contrary to the teachings of the Holy Scriptures.
There are people when in comes to “origin of life” and “the origin of men,” they immediately dismiss the teachings of the Bible as a “myth” and accepted the “evolutionary teaching” as “scientific fact.” Is “evolutionary belief” a scientific fact?
Evolution’s “Origin of Life” is absurd
If we will only make a careful study of Evolution’s “origin of life” we will find that their explanation about the origin of life is absurd. The very basic foundation of Evolution’s “origin of life” was formulated in the 19th century called “abiogenesis.” This means that living thing came from non-living thing. They based their hypothesis from their observation that if they will live a fruit for a day then from it will rise maggots - abiogenesis. However, they were proven wrong. It’s biogenesis (living things came from living things) and not abiogenesis. Maggots found from the fruit did not came from the fruit , but from fruitflies. Today, “abiogenesis is defined as:
“Abiogenesis…the NOW DISCREDITED THEORY that living organisms can arise spontaneously from inanimate matter; spontaneous generation.”
(http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/Abiogenesis, emphasis mine)
Then they fomulated another theory, this time they made it to look “scientific.” That in the primodial sea came the mutation of non-living matter and evolved into “living organism” (the simple cell). There are many questions about this that evolutionists cannot answer or cannot came up with reasonable answer. One of the major question about this “theory” tegarding the “origin of life” that evolutions failed to come up with a right answer is “What is the atmosphere composed of when the natural process took place that resulted to the rise of “complex living organism (the mutation of the non-living maters into simple cell, and the mutation of the simple cell into complex living organism)? What was the primodial atmosphere composed of?
Evolutionist failed to come up with reasonable answer because of the “scientific fact” that they cannot argue. Some evolutionists said, “For mutation to take place, a strong radiation is needed, and for this to happen, the primodial atmosphere perhaps was composed mostly of nitrogen.” However, if the primodial atmosphere is composed of nitrogen, mutation would really took place because there are no ozone layer that will filter the radiation coming from the sun. But, although mutation will yook place in primodial atmoshepe composed mostly of nitrogen, but woluld “life” survive in an atmosphere without “ozone layer” that filters the radiation coming from the sun? In order for life to survive, adiation coming from the sun must be filtered, thus we need an atmoshpere compsed mostly of oxogen. However, if the primodial atmosphere was comosed mostly of oxygen, then the radiation was filered, thus no mutation will took place.
Please ponder this: If the primodial atmosphere was composed mostly of nitrogen, mutation will take place but no life will survive. If the primodial atmosphere was composed of oxygen, life will survive but no mutation will take place.
Thus, Evolution’s “origin of life” is truly absurd. So, if the very beginning of the “evolutionary process” is truly unscietific and absurd, thus how can we hold on to the remaining steps of the “evolutionary process” as scientific? Hence, when a person believes in “evolution” he held a false belief, a false teaching.
WILL A PERSON WHO BELIEVES IN EVOLUTION BE SAVED?
Let us go back to our brother’s question, “Will a baptized member of the INC who believes in evolution be saved?” Will a person who believes in evolution be saved? This is what the Bible tells us:
Galatians 5:19-21 Bible in Basic English
”Now the works of the flesh are clear, which are these: evil desire, unclean things, wrong use of the senses, Worship of images, use of strange powers, hates, fighting, desire for what another has, angry feelings, attempts to get the better of others, divisions, FALSE TEACHINGS, Envy, uncontrolled drinking and feasting, and such things: of which I give you word clearly, even as I did in the past, THAT THEY WHO DO SUCH THINGS WILL HAVE NO PART IN THE KINGDOM OF GOD.” (Emphasis mine)
