Can a Christian Logically Believe in Creation AND Evolution ?

Home > Pastor's Blog > Can a Christian Logically Believe in Creation AND Evolution ?

On Wednesday Night, February 7th, we will consider the following question – “Can a Christian Logically Believe in Creation AND Evolution?” In last week’s Dahlonega Nugget newspaper – there was the following announcement: “Darwin Went Down to Georgia at UNG.”  On Feb 12, the University of North Georgia’s Biology Department and the TriBeta Biology Honor Society will “celebrate Charles Darwin’s birthday and his contributions to science.” They will be honoring Darwin with lectures, art contests, and even a birthday cake.

Charles Darwin remains controversial in Christian circles because his book “The Origin of the Species”(1859) led to an acceptance of Evolutionary Theory and a rejection of the Biblical Creation account by many professors and teachers in the academic community. Then (to further complicate matters), his book which makes the case for a few simple life forms mutating and evolving over millions of years to the rich diversity of plants and animals that we see in the world today, he ends the book (in some early editions) with the following quote:  “There is grandeur in this view of life, with its several powers, having been originally breathed by the Creator into a few forms or into one; and that, whilst this planet has gone circling on according to the fixed law of gravity, from so simple a beginning endless forms most beautiful and most wonderful have been, and are being evolved.”

So, after writing a book that crushes the need for a Creator, Darwin makes a final case for a Creator who used evolution to make the world we live in today. This idea of blending creation and evolution is known as “Theistic Evolution.”

As we prepare for this discussion – please consider the following question:
