Because the writer isn’t a politician, preacher, or other public figure, we won’t embarrass or promote him by using his full name. His first name is Bill. Excerpts from his letter will be enhanced with our Curmudgeonly commentary, some bold font for emphasis, and occasional Curmudgeonly interjections that look [like this]. Here we go!
Biblical Christianity and evolution are completely incompatible. To say you believe in both is no different than religious syncretism, which is mixing two different religious beliefs together. In the Old Testament, the Jews were repeatedly judged because of mixing Judaism with the pagan religions of the surrounding nations.
As our title suggests, Bill is very hard core. He says:
Following are some major differences between Christianity and the theory of evolution. When our creator made the universe, it was very good. Sin, death and things such as hurricanes did not exist at the beginning.
Yes, the universe was very good. Of course, there was also that ol’ devil, who got Eve to eat the forbidden fruit. He certainly wasn’t “very good.” Where did he come from? Anyway, Bill tells us:
Jesus died for our sins because Adam and Eve sinned and brought the curse of death on humanity.
That’s what the book says. Bill continues:
The atheistic, evolutionary universe is the exact opposite of the universe created by God. The world of the evolutionists has always been filled with death, suffering and cruelty.
How horrible! Let’s read on:
The God of the Bible is a God of love who made everything very good in the beginning. Humanity, not God, brought sin, death and destruction into the world.
Let’s not forget the Flood, where everything not on the Ark (except maybe fish) was killed by the God of love, including puppy dogs, butterflies, song birds, and even unborn children. How is that better than what those wicked evolutionists teach? Another excerpt:
God sent his son to offer reconciliation to humanity and remove the curse of death for those who choose to love him.
Yes, but he didn’t arrive until well after the Flood. Unfortunate timing for those who lived earlier. And somehow, everything still dies. Anyway, here’s more:
Unfortunately, most Christians in the church today are biblically illiterate and are clueless how to defend their Christian beliefs.
Yes, there is a lot of cluelessness, but Bill is doing a great job. And now we come to the end:
One of the main reasons our society has degraded into so much depravity is because of the failure of the church to honor our Lord.
Bill certainly paints a dreary picture. The problem is not only with those who believe evolution, but the church is full of fools too. Not a very cheerful letter, but it’s good creationism.
