Evolution

“Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said?…”

Gen. 3:1

“Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, and changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to… birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things… who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator.”

Rom. 1:22-25

“Keep that which is committed to thy trust, avoiding… oppositions of science falsely so called: which some professing have erred concerning the faith.”

1 Tim. 6:20,21

On Theistic Evolution

Theistic Evolution is the belief that God (Theos) providentially guided the process of Evolution.  Sometimes it critiques evolution by chance, but then affirms that the intervention of God overcomes the improbabilities of chance.  It still remains incompatible with the Genesis account.
