If only the issue were so simple as Genesis. But it is much worse than that.
The NT is based on the old. And Genesis plays a large part, particularly the part about a perfect world created by God before sin entered and the result was death. I have argued this before. if death came before sin, then there is no hope for us, for death was part of God’s plan for us. If evolution is true, what really is sin, and when did it come to be that?
I have said that evolution destroys the theology of the NT. Some of you argued that you can believe in evolution and the Bible. But people can hold to contrary views without mental dissonance, and do it all the time. That proves nothing. Evolution destroys the theology of the NT
Paul says in Romans 5:12: “Therefore, just as sin entered the world through one man, and death through sin, and in this way, death came to all men…”. Well, did death enter through one man’s sin, or was it from the beginning, before men existed? If sin is not the culprit, rather God is because that is how the creature’s diversity was created, why blame man for death.
Hebrews 2:14: “Since the children have flesh and blood, he too shared in their humanity, so that by his death he might destroy him who holds the power of death—that is the devil— and free those who all their lives were held in slavery by their fear of death.” if God used death to create, who is this devil who holds the power of death? John asserts in John 1 that Jesus is the Creator. Did he use death to do the creating? Then why does he talk of defeating death?
Do you guys and gals believe in a resurrection? Is there a heaven? Does Jesus save us from sin and death? These are not scientific ideas. Are they excluded?
If you are unable to discuss the theology, and say that science must be the final arbiter, then there is no discussion. But if God can alter the history of the world, then he could do any other thing as well.
Address the theology.
