Evil of Evolution and the 'ism's'
At the root of all the ‘ism’s (evolutionism, naturalism, materialism, relativism, transhumanism, atheism) is the lie spawned by Satan himself in the Garden of Eden Genesis 3:5 “For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods” – HUMANISM.
Humanism the belief that we shall be as gods is Satan’s great deception. The evolutionists-from ape to god, and for the naturalists all things come from natural properties and causes ‘matter’ is all that matters. For the relativists just do what you feel, morals are determined by culture not an absolute truth. Transhumanist play god while denying God. They seek to improve man from ‘homo sapiens’ to ‘homo perfectus’ through genetic engineering and technology. They have become intellectually reprobate. The atheist will have accountability to no god for their isn’t one in their religion. It is the atheists that are most suited for the deception of evolutionism, for in evolutionism there is no higher authority and therefore no accountability. We are here by chance with no purpose other than to fulfill the carnal nature while choking out the spiritual nature with self-deception and the lusts of the flesh-eat, drink, and be merry for tomorrow we die. The deception of Satan has known many names…. ‘science so called’ being the most deceiving.
Pseudo-science is nothing other than evolutionism, which has been in “oppositions” against God as Savior and Creator and the world as His creation since the beginning of time. In Paul’s day, it mainly took the form of Epicureanism (based on atheistic evolutionism) and Stoicism (based on pantheistic evolutionism). It soon would take the form of Gnosticism and later of Neo-Platonism, both also assuming evolution. In other parts of the world, it had the form of Taoism, Hinduism, Confucianism, or Buddhism, all based squarely on some form of pantheistic evolution and an infinitely old cosmos. In recent times it assumed the form of Darwinism, though men are now returning again to various forms of eastern religion and their systems of pantheistic evolution, still rejecting God as Creator and Christ as Savior.
Evolution is evil in that it denies the Living God (YHVH). Those that adhere to evolution, and transhumanism (which seeks to advance man to Homo Perfectus through genetic engineering and technology), naturalism, and all the other religions\beliefs do so because they elevate man and diminish God. They want no accountability to God and deny their creator-worshiping the creation more than the creator. Evolution at its worst denies God and makes Him a liar and at the least casts Him as a bumbling creator whose initial creation was full of errors, mistakes and has to be corrected by death and time, lots of death and lots of time-billions of years of time. To the evolutionists the process of evolution is straightening out Gods mistakes and failures. The transhumanist will improve what God created (if they even believe in God-YHVH) and make man better. This is a dangerous belief considering God created man in His image. Although that image is tarnished not because of any failing of God in the creation, but because of the failing of man through his disobedience and thus bringing about the curse of sin and death. (Genesis 3:17-19) Those who adhere to evolutionism, transhumanism, naturalism, atheism, are willing to believe and be accountable to anything but God, elevating man and nature. The worldviews of the evolutionists, transhumanists, naturalists, atheists and all other false beliefs can be summed up in the words of the economists and social theorists Jeremy Rifkin:
“We no longer feel ourselves to be guests in someone else’s home and therefore obliged to make our behavior conform to a set of pre-existing cosmic rules. It is our creation now. We will make the rules. We establish the parameters of reality. We create the world, and because we do, we no longer feel beholden to outside forces. We no longer have to justify our behavior, for we are now the architects of the universes. We are responsible to nothing outside ourselves, for we are The Kingdom, The Power, and The Glory Forever and Ever” – Jeremy Rifkin (“and ye shall be as gods-Satan –Genesis 3:5)
Those that deny the creation of God have been blinded to the evidence of Gods design by the evil one 2Corinthians 4:4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them. They are willingly ignorant 2Peter 3:5 For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water: For the creation itself testifies of God and His creative powers Romans 1:20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
God has testified of Himself through His creation and the invisible things of God unseen by the eyes are clearly seen by the heart of those that believe. God created mankind for a purpose and He put us upon this earth to fulfill His purpose in us. We are made in His image and He wants a personal relationship with His creation. Through the shed blood of Jesus Christ and our belief in Jesus as the Son of God and His redeeming work on the cross for the sins of the world we can have that relationship and be reconciled to God for eternity. Do not be deceived by Satan and his lies that you shall be as gods ( humanism, transhumanism) or that you are here by random chance and have no purpose other than satisfying the fleshly need of the body (evolution, naturalism). Remember… You are special and DO HAVE A PURPOSE.
John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
John 15:16 Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you. Hold fast brothers and sisters Jesus is coming; be faithful and remember the Power and Strength of the LORD which abides in you is equal to the amount of FAITH you have in Him.
