One last post in this series. It is important for pastors to become educated and follow the Holy Spirit to the truth. In the case of the theory of evolution, pastors and many Christians can become confused because of the scientific hypothesis, conjecture, assumptions being tossed around by scientists and evolutionists.
Pastors need to be able to lead their people through the land mines of secular lies and get their people to the right information so that they and their people do not stumble and get led astray by the double talk given by evolutionists. For example, evolutionists cite the similarities between genetic codes as evidence for an evolutionary development.
What the evolutionist does not admit to, acknowledge or even factor in when they say they have proof for their non-existent theory is the fact that most animals and humans live in the exact same environment and have the exact same needs. This means that both humans and animals will share many genetic and bodily functions and this shared trait is not evidence for evolution but the wisdom of God as he designed both humans and most animals to live together within the same environment.
It would be ridiculous to have a diversity of bodily functions and other organs when animals and humans live together. It is the evolutionist that is deceived not the Christian thus the pastor cannot lean upon the words of unbelievers to help them understand our origins or the Bible. God knew what he did, and evil is leading many people astray because pastors re not correctly informed. We rely upon God not science for our information concerning our origins and other details.
Science has long kicked the God of truth out of its laboratories and invited the father of lies in, We do not trust what secular scientists claim or declare, especially when their words go against God and his word. The church is not against science but the lies that are produced by secular science.
