Jonathan Dudley: Christian Faith Requires Accepting Evolution~A Response

Jonathan Dudley: Christian Faith Requires Accepting Evolution

The above link will take you to an article stating that Christian faith requires accepting evolution. What Christian faith requires is accepting Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. We are sinners in need of a redeemer. The question that evolution does not answer is, "How did sin enter into the world?" Nor does it answer the question, "Who was first man?" Or another way to ask this question, "Who are my first grandparents?" I am not opposed to science or scientific inquiry. I am opposed to not thinking. No one doubts Stephen Hawking is a genius. But he has now concluded that we do not need God to create the universe. He states, "Because there is a law such as gravity, the universe can and will create itself from nothing," he writes. "Spontaneous creation is the reason there is something rather than nothing, why the universe exists, why we exist." Click here for the Guardian article So, Dr. Hawking, where did the law of gravity come from? Just who created gravity? 

And it is the same with evolution. Sin entered the world through Adam. And eternal life entered this same world through Jesus Christ. (Rom. 5:12-21) If there is no Adam, then we have no need for Jesus. And if we have no need for Jesus, then Christian faith requires nothing as there is no faith without Jesus! (Heb. 12:2)
