Yesterday at 10:23 PM Allegorizing the Creation Account [by Tom]
Hi
As you know there are people that claim to be Christians, who also believe in evolution. They do so, for a number of reasons. But a prominent reason is that they believe unless Christians give in to the current evolutionary views, they will end up being a laughing stock. Below is something that I believe is one of the simplest ways to combat this.

Is it possible God used evolution to create man?

The short answer to this is absolutely not!
We see in Scripture that man was made in the image of God (Gen. 1:26), from the dust of the ground (Gen. 2:7).
Many like to allegorize the creation of man, to make it conform to the current evolutionary theory.
Yet this creates a huge problem. In the allegory model, being created from the dust of the ground must represent the thing man evolved from. In this case because of evolutionary theory man evolved from the apes.
So what is the problem?
In Gen. 2:7 we read that man was created from the dust of the ground and in Gen. 3:19 we read about part of the curse where God says that from out of the dust of the ground you were created; from out of the dust you will return.
Did man become apes again after the fall?
Of course not, but this is exactly what the allegory theory is saying. To be consistent with evolutionary theory they must be saying that dust represents apes.
Most do not understand that this is what it would be saying. But those who do not believe the Bible at all believe that man evolved from apes, or something else.
This is just the tip of the iceberg, when it comes to allegory and evolution.
I actually believe that those who believe in evolution who do not believe in the Bible, are more consistent than evolutionists who claim to be Christians.
At least they do not allegorize the Scriptures to conform to evolution.
Thoughts?

Fri Jun 21, 2019 10:01 AM False Teachers. Another Gospel [by chestnutmare]

The success of an illegitimate coiner depends largely upon how closely the counterfeit resembles the genuine article. Heresy is not so much the total denial of the truth as a perversion of it. That is why half a lie is always more dangerous than a complete repudiation. Hence when the Father of Lies enters the pulpit it is not his custom to flatly deny the fundamental truths of Christianity, rather does he tacitly acknowledge them, and then proceed to give an erroneous interpretation and a false application.

Tue Jun 18, 2019 11:07 PM He who admonishes at the wrong time, injures [by chestnutmare]
An untimely profession of the truth, which is to cast pearls before swine, and to give that which is holy to the dogs, as Christ says; who, by these words, forbids such a profession of the truth as is not made at the proper time, and when no necessity demands it: for it is correctly said, He who admonishes at the wrong time, injures.

Thu Jun 13, 2019 3:12 PM Friendship [by chestnutmare]
To satisfy some bosom friends, some faithful friends. Man is made to be a friend, and apt for friendly offices. He who is not friendly is not worthy to have a friend; and he who has a friend, and does not show himself friendly, is not worthy to be accounted a man. Friendship is a kind of life, without which there is no comfort of a man's life. Christian friendship ties such a knot that great Alexander cannot cut. Summer friends I value notóbut winter friends are worth their weight in gold; and who can deny such anything, especially in these days, wherein real, faithful, constant friends are so rare to be found? 1 Sam. 22:1-3.

Thu Jun 06, 2019 9:54 AM Fictitious worship [by chestnutmare]
Those who set up a fictitious worship, merely worship and adore their own delirious fancies; indeed, they would never dare so to trifle with God, had they not previously fashioned him after their own childish conceits.

~ John Calvin, Institutes of the Christian Religion
