First and foremost, we must be mindful when the disciples asked Jesus for the signs of the end times, just before He would return, He warned of false Christs and false prophets who would deceive many.
I used to be a Theistic Evolutionist, and today we have Christian colleges and seminaries that teach various versions of manmade Christs. One may teach the Gap Theory Christ while another teaches a Progressive Creation Christ and yet another teaches their students of a Christ who used evolution to get us here. We must ask ourselves, how many Jesus’ died on that cross? The only Jesus found in Scripture claims to have created in 6-days and judged man’s sin with a global flood. Also, the genealogies add up to just a few thousand years ago.
Each manmade version of Jesus is an attempt to fit the secular interpretation of the earth’s strata layers (millions of years of death) into God’s Word. Each either denies the global flood of God’s first judgment of man’s sin (2nd if you are a Gap Theorist) or the results of the flood (sedimentary strata laid down by water making up most of the earth’s crust). They deny the flood because the flood destroys their old-earth belief (Such is prophesied in 2 Peter 3:3-6). It’s surely better to read God’s Word and believe God’s Word as the strata are great proof for the Bible’s reliability.
Our ministry is aimed at evangelizing the Church and I show folks overwhelming proof in support of God’s Word. This includes refuting old-earth and Darwinian claims. For instance, the global flood washes away all old-earth beliefs revealing that the pure Word of God is both trustworthy and believable, Word for Word and cover to cover.
Jesus also told us to tell good from bad by the fruit and the great majority of our own children are leaving the Church in droves today. Kids see the overall Church failing to stand up to the “millions of years leading to Darwinism” which they are taught every day. They also see the hypocrisy of Christians compromising God’s Word. We don’t lead people to the one and only Jesus by altering Him to fit secular opinions. We lead people to Jesus Christ by showing them that they can put their trust in the authority of His Word, Word for Word and cover to cover. Faith comes from hearing, and believing, God’s Word.
Progressive Creationism is the belief that the Creator of the world is a god who used millions of years of death and suffering to gradually “create” everything, ending with mankind. There are varying versions but in general they either believe each day of creation was a long era of time or that there were long periods of time between each literal creation day. Neither fits the evidences or the Word of God or the words of the Lord Jesus who claimed man was made in the beginning (Matthew 19:4; Mark 10:6)
This is simply another manmade attempt to bend God’s Word to fit with secular interpretations of the earth’s strata layers. PC places death before man, eliminating the fact that man’s sin allowed death to enter God’s perfect creation while separating us from God, requiring Jesus’ redeeming death on the cross in order to reunite us with our Creator.
PC’s deny the global flood, as foretold in 2 Peter 3:3-6, as such an event destroys this manmade, non-biblical tale along with other old-earth philosophies.
Col 2:8 – Beware of man’s philosophies which are after the world and not after Christ.
