The Creation and Evolution Debate

Understanding Creationism

Creationism is the belief that the entire universe and all of life were created in a special act by a Creator. This is based on the concepts contained within Scripture with an emphasis on the Genesis account of a seven day act of creation. It states that the creation was originally made in a good condition and that over time it is deteriorating and getting worse due to the fall of man and the action of sin.

Understanding Evolutionism

The Theory of Evolution, as a science, specifically deals with change over time. It does not deal with the origins of the universe and the origins of life nor does it really deal with atheism, agnosticism, or eugenics. Those things belong to Evolutionism. Evolutionism does ally itself with atheism, secularism, and the philosophy of materialism. It also follows an old universe view with the Big Bang Theory as the beginning and Uniformitarian processes forming the Earth and life.

Logical Fact versus Fallacy

The topic of Creationism is not a salvation issue. However, anything, like Evolutionism, that causes doubt or difficulty with understanding or believing Scripture is yet another stumbling block that inhibits a person from becoming a believer or a stronger believer. Evolutionism has spread rapidly in the last several decades. At the same time, Creationism has been slow in responding. Baraminology, the scientific study of created kinds, is one of the responses that is now forming and challenging the Theory of Evolution. The more we study kinds, the more evidence is discovered to show that science supports Creationism.

Searching for Truth

The Great Questions of Life

One of the best ways to encourage life is to boldly confront the issues raised by the great questions of life rather than fearing or shying away from them. If we do not have the answers to these questions, then our lives will generally become reactive to situations and people rather than proactive towards a goal. Reactions to family, friends, work, and society may produce a lifestyle we are comfortable with, but a lifestyle is not life itself. When we know the answers to the questions of life, it will produce a sense of purpose and meaning that can give us goals and projects on which to move forward. It is a means to life abundant and a life with blessing.
