The Devil’s Gospel

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth …
God created man in His own image,
in the image of God He created him;
male and female He created them. Genesis 1:1-27

All flesh is not the same flesh:
but there is one kind of flesh of men,
another flesh of beasts,
another of fishes,
and another of birds.

There are also celestial bodies and bodies terrestrial:
but the glory of the celestial is one,
and the glory of the terrestrial is another.
1 Corinthians 15:39-40

Have you ever wondered why most people who believe in creationism
have difficulty defending their beliefs? Well, let’s talk about that.

There are a number of obvious reasons that cause believers to remain silent. The cards have been stacked against us by the enemies of the Creator. Once the false theory of evolution gained the upper hand by appealing to mens ignorance, lust, and pride; the enemies of God were not likely to allow contrary evidence. From the evolutionary viewpoint, the most effective responses to Creation are not evidence for evolution which is not available; but rather attack; attack; attack. Creationism is ignorant, evolution is scientific; teaching creation is teaching religion: a perceived church/state violation; and scientists who present a case against evolution, or for intelligent design are ridiculed, banished, and ostracized. These methods have worked so well that we now have an entire adult population that has been indoctrinated from their youth with the false teaching of evolution as fact. This leaves many confused with God's Word, and unprepared to defend The truth.

As a Biblical Christian, the verses above are accepted by me literally, by faith. Although there is evidence of this truth everywhere, unlike scientists, I do not need to prove what I believe. But the fact is that evolution is a highly preposterous theory that has not and cannot be proven scientifically. And furthermore I will contend here that atheistic religious beliefs were foundational in developing the theory. It is important to note that non-Christian scientists have presented a very compelling theory of intelligent design. Of course, most atheistic naturalist scientists are more intent on rebuking creation that they are with determining the truth scientifically. If not, why are they afraid to consider alternative theories? The answer to this question is simple, the alternative: a Creator is just not something they are willing to even remotely consider, regardless of any evidence presented; alternative theories; or evidence to the contrary regarding Darwinian evolution.

I realize Creation falls on deaf ears to the atheistic mentality ... but what about Christians who have accepted the lie? And how do we protect our children? And what about those who are seeking Christ the Savior? This is a major barrier for many.

Let’s look again at what God’s Word teaches.

“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth … God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.” This statement is clear. It cannot be misunderstood. There is no interpretation or explanation needed. Theistic evolution is also foolishness … in that it is only an attempt to pander to evolution, the false wisdom of men.

God in response to evolution spoke back to us in advance through the apostle Paul. He gave us additional information here. Men are different than animals … men are different than fish … men are different from birds. They all have different flesh. That is why men cannot procreate with an animal of any kind. Men have bodies that are both celestial and terrestrial. A terrestrial body is an earthly body; and a celestial body is a heavenly body. This is contrary to evolution. We cannot accept both teachings. One is true, and the other is false. Either/ Or ... not both. No credible evidence has ever, or will ever be produced to prove God’s Word to be untrue. How can I say this with confidence? Because God’s Word is Truth, and it is clearly stated above. The only evidence I need is: God’s Word.

But what about evolution, what about the theory of evolution taught in our schools, hasn’t evolution been proven … you ask? NO! I say that evolution is based upon false logic, and outright animosity towards God and Biblical Creation were at the heart of Darwin’s theory, from its foundation, and the contempt for God continues to this day. Don’t misunderstand me though. Modern science has made many great discoveries in the past 200 years and in many cases evolutionary thinking played a key role in these discoveries, but that is not proof that men have evolved from mud; to a slug; to a monkey; and to a man. That is an absurd LIE.

I want you to try something now that I think will for many of you, prove my point. I want you to watch this short video clip. Watch this NOW. I realize it is a different language and not that appealing but be patient ... read the words through the clip. Now do you really think that the brain that created the technology that created this clip, and your eyes, and your ears that watched and listened; and that gave this boy the ability to put those words together in song; and at the same time controls your emotions to the point that you may have been moved to tears when you watched; evolved from mud to a slug to an ape to a man? Did your emotions, eyes, ears, logic, intelligence, and feelings and your brain really evolve from nothing? This boy is not about the survival of the fittest, but rather the weakest; a living testimony to the hearts and minds of men. Now look at the picture of the dirty little mud fish slug above ... now do you really believe that we evolved from that stupid slug or something much less developed??

Now back to the question in my previous post. “If you could talk to Satan, would he want you to believe in evolution … or Creation?” The answer to that one is obvious. Here are some questions about Darwin’s motivation. Was his theory spiritually motivated? Did he describe his work from a spiritual perspective? Cambridge Professor, Dr. Robert Clark explains that Darwin referred to evolution as “the devil’s gospel.”1 Darwin's perspective couldn't get much more spiritual, anti-God, anti-creation, or anti-Bible than that.

Darwin was dealing with the guilt of the conclusion in his mind that not only did he banish God from his life, but from the entire universe as well. Darwin believed he had killed God for everyone. His life was a long attempt to escape from the church, and escape from God. As a result, Darwin adopted a philosophy consistent with the rejection of God known as logical positivism which taught that only science, mathematics, and logic were meaningful for understanding facts and that religion, ethics, and metaphysics were meaningless. Once he accepted this philosophy, Darwin was hardly unbiased in his scientific methodology.2

Most people are not aware that when first published, Origin of Species was for the most part rejected by the scientific community which almost universally held to a belief in divine creation. “Darwin’s friend and supporter T.H. Huxley described Darwin’s dilemma as follows: “The supporters of Mr. Darwin’s views were numerically, extremely insignificant. There is not the slightest doubt that if a general council of the church scientific had been held at that time, we would have been condemned by an overwhelming majority.”3

Professor Marvin Lubenow expands upon the state of Darwin’s religious attitudes and motivations when he quotes from Neal Gillespie’s classic writing: “Charles Darwin and the Problem of Creation.” "Gillespie notes that Darwin’s purpose was not just to establish the concept of evolution. Darwin’s master accomplishment was to convince the scientific world that it was unscientific to believe in supernatural causation. His purpose was to “ungod” the universe. Darwin was a positivist. He convinced scientists that it was unscientific to deal with God or creation in any way. To be scientific, they must study the world as if God did not exist … Keep in mind, Darwin was not an atheist. He did not exterminate God. He just evicted God from the universe which God had created. With God out of the picture, evolution fell into place rather easily, since evolution seemed to be the only other viable alternative. Evolution was not an attack against theism, but rather a specific attack against the God of the Bible. Obviously atheists are naturally evolutionists, but evolution is as comfortable with theism as it is with atheism. An evolutionist is free to choose any god he wishes, as long as it is not the God of the Bible. The gods allowed by evolution are private, subjective, and artificial. They make no absolute or ethical demands. On the other hand, the god of the Bible is the Creator, Sustainer, Savior, and Judge. All are responsible to Him. He has an agenda that conflicts with that of sinful humans. Evolution was originally designed as a specific attack against the god of the Bible, and it remains so to this day. While Theistic Evolutionists seem blind to this fact, the secular world sees it very clearly."4

Modern scientists face the same dilemma as Darwin and they follow the same formula he established. Science is all powerful and the only knowledge that is legitimate to them comes from science, mathematics, and their teachings, even if they make it up. To say they are arrogant would probably be received as a compliment by many. Our modern day version of this application of arrogance is the recent unscientific promotion of the premise that "man caused global warming" will destroy the world as we know it in the next 100 years. Even after it has most recently been demonstrated foolishness and outright deception, some still cling to it as established fact and are ready to surrender their freedom and way of life for the false cause.

Just yesterday I heard an advocate of global warming argue that the premise was only misnamed global warming but now the name has been transformed by the enlightened to a new term: “climate change” and she contended that the best thing we can all do is become vegans or vegetarians. Not eating meat apparently speaks to the environmentalists twisted goals and logic. Connecting the dots from vegan to climate change is just one more loony left wing premise. There is nothing wrong with a going on a vegetable diet, as my doctor has suggested for me, but these tactics are dishonest and criminal. Even Christian churches have fallen for this idiocy as evidenced by Saddleback Churche's vegetarian play on Biblical words "The Daniel Plan." Isn’t the term “climate change” more all-encompassing and convenient than global warming? No more need to manipulate statistics and create false reports anymore. Whatever happens … climate change describes the supposed looming disaster that always leads us (the unenlightened) to their desired end … that being: whatever the more highly evolved determine to be best for all of us ... and of course the funding of their grants to research their latest tangent.

For these same scientists, evolution is accepted as a philosophical necessity more than a scientific conviction. Dr. Clark Pinnock points this out when he says: “The reason evolution is believed and taught as a fact is not due to the evidence for it, but rather due to the need for it.”5 Dr. Greg Bahnsen agrees: “Evolution is not a testable scientific hypothesis at all, but rather a philosophical paradigm preferred by some men to discredit the biblical doctrine of Creation."6 Dr. George Wald, the Nobel Prize winning biologist at Harvard agrees: “The reasonable view was to believe in spontaneous generation; the only alternative was to believe in a single primary act of supernatural creation. There is no third position. For this reason many scientists a century ago chose to regard the belief in spontaneous generation as a philosophical necessity … Most modern biologists, having viewed with satisfaction the downfall of the spontaneous generation hypothesis, are yet unwilling to accept the alternative belief in special creation, are left with nothing.”7

The grandson of “Darwin’s bulldog” Thomas Henry Huxley; the famous novelist Aldous Huxley openly explains the motivation of these men in his book "Ends and Means" ... "I had motives for not wanting the world to have a meaning; consequently I assumed that it had none, and was able without any difficultly to find satisfying reasons for this assumption. Most ignorance is invincible ignorance. We don’t know because we don’t want to know. And the Philosopher who finds no meaning in the world is not concerned exclusively with a problem in pure metaphysics; he is also concerned to prove that there is no valid reason why he personally should not do as he wants to do, or why his friends should not seize political power and govern in a way they find most advantageous to themselves. For myself, as no doubt, for most of my contemporaries also, the philosophy of meaninglessness was essentially an instrument of liberation. This liberation is political, economic, and sexual; and like many other modern materialists I found evolutionary belief quite satisfying.”8

So in closing, why do you think these men were so intent on discrediting Creation, and Jesus Christ the God of the Bible? I am convinced that the god of this world who has blinded the minds of the unbelieving was guiding them. Since Darwin referred to Evolution as: “the devil’s gospel” … I would contend that Darwin was in fact Satan’s advocate, or a sort of scientific antichrist.

For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, because that which is known about God is evident within them; for God made it evident to them. For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse. For even though they knew God, they did not honor Him as God or give thanks, but they became futile in their speculations, and their foolish heart was darkened … professing to be wise, they became fools. Romans 1:18-22

God Bless you my friends, Bob

  1. For the Theistic Evolutionist there is a great problem: if God used Evolution to create the universe, the earth, and eventually us, then death existed long before Adam and it was a normal function of nature rather than an intruder that entered when Adam sinned. If death is not the consequence of sin as God stted numerous times, then death is not anything man must be savd from; it is not divine judgment but the natural progression of how God created things to run. In that case no Savior is necessary because sin is mythical, along with the six day creation account, Adam, and Eden. Capitulating to Evolution essentially is an utter denial of the very cornerstone of our faith.

  2. Ian:

    Well said. Thank you for the added insight on Theistic evolution. I am convinced that if evolution was involved in the process of creation in any context ... God would have made that fact clear to us in His Word.

    Contrary to what unbelievers often promote, the Bible does not contradict itself and God is not a god of confusion.

    all the best, Bob

  3. Indeed this is worth reading. To think that man is a product of evolution is just unfortunate and sad. Those who make such assertions do not know what they are talking about.There is more to life than they think. If they've ever seen a life come into existence and fade away inspite of all the effort of Doctors then they would know that nothing just happens and that there is more to life than we think. The truth is that faith in God really gives meaning to life and if they really need answers to the inexplicable things of life then they should just try the God of the Bible- The I Am and fountain of all Wisdom.Thank you Ian

  4. I have been thinking and I believe you can all help me. How do we nurture the youth for positive contribution?

  5. Kojo:

    Are you Dela's good ministry friend in Accra.

    If yes, we met years ago on my trip there with the Whiteheads. You might remember, I lost my luggage and you helped me recover it. I hope all is well and I will pray for the youth there. Training them in the Lord and that the Holy Spirit will place a burden in their hearts for the lost ... this is the most we can hope for.

    I pray all is well for you and you family there in Accra.

    God bless you my friend,
    Bob West

  6. Bob, this is a great article - very many thanks indeed for posting it. Most of the people who read blogs like yours are Christians, and if they are also theistic evolutionists, let's hope and pray that they may be led to examine more closely what they believe, and why, through reading this post.

    I agree very much with Ian's remarks about the origin of death and suffering.

    The battle-lines today seem to be drawn up over the issue of evidence for or against - which side can come up with more, or better evidence, to "prove" their case? This is misleading. We all have exactly the same evidence! We all have the same fossils, the same geology, etc. etc. The issue is the interpretation of that evidence, and that springs from one's initial worldview and mindset - the evolutionist must at all costs deny the existence of God, because to accept His existence would logically lead inevitably to the issue of accountability to a holy God and His Laws. Nobody was actually "there" when the events in question occurred, and we can't go back to look, but God Himself was there, and He told us through Moses and other Biblical writers. For the Christian, the evidence points clearly to a divine, spontaneous and recent creation "ex nihilo" and not the illogical microbes-to-microbiologists process that the evolutionists would have us believe.

    The organisation Answers in Genesis has a superb website, a Creation Museum and plentiful resources for young and old, and speakers who tour the world and challenge Christians and unbelievers alike on the subject of origins and the fundamental issue of the authority of God's Word. It may look hopeless but great work is being done, and believers are being equipped by organisations such as this, and Creation Ministries International, to name another - to challenge and convince, and to cause people to question their unthinking belief in a system to which no genuine scientist would give house-room if they really applied their scientific principles! Many people are being saved through the Creation Gospel. We need to pray for these organisations, and support them all we can.

    Bless you, Bob, and thank you again!
