Theistic evolution is the idea that God started or directed evolutionary processes. This view makes God a bumbling, incompetent Creator and the author of death and suffering as it puts them before mankind’s sin. It calls into question the truth of God’s Word and his character as an all-powerful, loving God.
The essence of theistic evolution is “God started it all and he is still watching over his creation.” Regardless of any good intentions, theistic evolutionists twist Scripture and weaken the fabric of biblical doctrine.
In theistic evolution, the Bible is regarded as a collection of documents which partially contains God’s Word. The Bible thus contains no authoritative, binding truths, but must be freshly interpreted and corrected for every era and in every situation.
Christians who adopt evolution are inconsistent because they are accepting the foundation of the humanistic worldviews. Essentially, they are telling God that they believe Him when He told us about the Virgin Birth, Crucifixion, and Resurrection of Christ, but they do not trust Him when He tells us about how He created the world.
Some respected Christian leaders, famous for defending the fundamentals of the faith against compromise, were guilty of their own compromise.

God’s Word must be the authority.
