Are Evolution and Christianity Compatible?

To put it simply, evolution was invented in order to eliminate the God of Genesis and thereby to oust the Lawgiver and obliterate the inviolability of His law. Evolution is simply the latest means our fallen race has devised in order to suppress our innate knowledge and the biblical testimony that there is a God and that we are accountable to Him (cf. Romans 1:28).

Pulpit Magazine published this article answering this question. The short answer is Christianity is not compatible with evolution. Anyone who tries to put the two together is misinformed. If we allow Genesis 1-11 to be redefined or evolution to be worked into it, then we destroy the foundation on which the Bible is based. Once the foundation is destroyed the remainder of the Bible will quickly fall. Do not get sucked into the false teaching of evolution or theistic evolution.

Chapter 4
CREATION

4.1 In the beginning it pleased God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit,1 to create the world and all things in it, both visible and invisible,2 in six days,3 and all very good.4 This was a demonstration of the glory of his eternal power, wisdom, and goodness.5

4.2 After God had made all other creatures, he created human beings, male and female, with reasoning and immortal souls, making them fitted for that life for God for which they were created.1 They were made in the image of God, with knowledge, righteousness, and true holiness.2 They had the law of God written in their hearts, and the power to fulfil it; yet they also had the possibility of transgressing, and were left to the liberty of their own changeable wills.3

(1) Gen 1:26,28; 2:17
