We who preach the gospel must not think of ourselves as public relations agents sent to establish good will between Christ and the world. We must not imagine ourselves commissioned to make Christ acceptable to big business, the press, the world of sports or modern education. We are not diplomats but prophets, and our message is not a compromise but an ultimatum. A.W. Tozer
Therefore let God-inspired Scripture decide between us; and on whichever side be found doctrines in harmony with the word of God, in favor of that side will be cast the vote of truth. --Basil of Caesarea
Once you learn to discern, there's no going back. You will begin to spot the lie everywhere it appears.

I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who has strengthened me, because He considered me faithful, putting me into service. 1 Timothy 1:12

To Believe in Evolution One Must Deny the Fall

To believe in evolution is to deny a universal paradise before Adam, because evolution necessarily implies that before Adam there was struggle, cruelty and brutality, animals eating animals, and death.   Is the world going to be restored to that?  If you believe in evolution, you must deny a universal paradise before Adam (because you believe that there was death and struggle millions of years before Adam), and also at the end of time (because the Bible teaches the world will be restored to what it used to be).   Thus, evolution not only strikes at the heart and the foundation, but at the home of Christianity as well.  We all should be out there doing something about it.  Many of us have been hoodwinked into thinking that evolution has to do with science and that you need to be a scientist to do anything to combat it.  But evolution is only a belief system, and you do not need to be a scientist to combat that.

To believe in evolution is also to deny the restoration of all things... because there would be nothing to restore. If it's been all blood, guts, and gore since the get-go, then why would we think it would be any other way eternally?

Honestly, to deny creation and the fall of man is to undo the entire Bible.
