The "Theory" of Evolution Cannot Explain the Sin-nature
by David J. Stewart
Evolution Ignores the Sin Nature
Perhaps the greatest flaw with evolution is that it totally disregards the sinful nature of mankind and his inherent greed, lust and desire for power. Evolutionists do not recognize the concept of sin. Modern psychology doesn't even define the term "sin."
The reason why evolution is taught in public schools is because Satan wanted to remove God from the classroom; thus, morality ceased to exist in the minds of children. Is it any wonder why America is so messed up today? Yet, the reality of sin cannot be denied. Just look at the horrible things people do to each other. The Bible calls it "sin." Sin is violating God's Law. Only a dishonest fool would deny the existence of man's sin-nature.
So where did that sin-nature come from? How could lifeless stardust bring forth life, and then develop intelligence? Even wealthy people who have everything they could desire still commit horrible sins. It is more than just a matter of survival of the fittest. Mankind is inherently prone to greed, lust and hatred. If, as evolutionists claim, the universe evolved from lifeless stardust, then where did the sin-nature originate? Evolutionists cannot explain this phenomena.
Christianity Made the Scapegoat
Many people blame Christianity for the problems in the world; but there is a widespread misunderstanding of what it means to be a Biblical "Christian." Many heathens claim to be Christian; but they are liars. Even Adolf Hitler claimed to be a Christian; but he was not. Many people wrongfully blame Christianity for the problems of the world. Nothing could be further from the truth. Let me set the record straight... Adolf Hitler was a Roman Catholic; Not a Christian. Catholicism is a false religion. Biblically, only those who come to God as guilty sinners (Romans 3:19), believing upon Jesus as the Christ to forgive their sins (Acts 10:43) are truly "Christian"... "Ye must be born again" (John 3:7). "Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me" (John 14:6). The FACT is that every single human being is a sinner, prone to anger and rebellion against God. The Bible says that unless a man is born-again, he will not go to heaven (John 3:3).
Man's Need is God's Proof
Evolution cannot explain where mankind's sin-nature entered the alleged evolutionary process. Evolutionists teach that men and animals evolved from the same biological life source. If this were true, then why don't animals have sin natures? Why don't animals have a moral conscious? Why don't animals built alters and worship in churches? All people of every nation throughout history have sought God. Even the Wiccan witches have hundreds of pagan gods which they worship. History records primitive cultures sacrificing their children to alligators in worship of their pagan gods. The FACT that mankind by nature NEEDS a supreme power over him is proof that there is a GOD. Where did mankind develop this desperate need for a supreme power to rule over him? How can the evolutionists reconcile man's sinful nature and need for God with evolution? It's clear that evolution cannot this phenomena.
Evolution, even if it were true, does not explain where man's ability to commit evil. How could a simple one-cell living organism "evolve" into an intelligent human being who commits horrible acts of evil? The Bible tells us that sin entered into the world through the sin of Adam... "Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned" (Romans 5:12). Now that makes a lot more sense to me than the bogus theory of evolution which offers NO EXPLANATION for man's wickedness. The Bible addresses man's sinfulness and remedy in Christ Jesus. The unsaved world prefers to ignore the reality of sin; yet all their "experts" cannot explain why people do what they do. The Word of God plainly gives us the answer; but the world rejects it because of their love for sin (John 3:20). When John Wayne Gacy was executed (15-years after sodomizing and murdering 33 young boys in Illinois), scientists dissected his brain to search for abnormalities. They found a normal brain. If they had even a basic understanding of the Bible, they would have known that the problem was in his heart... "The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?" Mankind is inherently evil and rotten to the core.
You'll never hear the word "sinner" in an evolution seminar (or in any of the teachings of evolution). That alone should tell you something is very wrong with their "theories." The answer is not education, reformation, or rehabilitation; but rather, regeneration by the Holy Spirit of God... "Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost" (Titus 3:5).
Animals Have No Moral Consciousness
Though animals do commit random acts of violence, it is not on a moral basis. Animals kill to dominate the pack, kill to defend their young; but they don't kill just because they can. Animals don't conspire and plan their attack for 3-months. Men on the other hand conspire, they skillfully plan their offense, they often kill simply out of pure hated. Animals do not have a moral-conscious like humans do. Animals do what they do without regret or remorse, even eating their own children for food at times. Animals do not carry grudges to their grave like we humans often do. The drastic and irrefutable differences between animals and humans clearly evidence that they could NOT have evolved from the same biological source of life. This alone shatters every theory of evolution.
Order and Structure Cannot Come From Chaos
The Big Bang theory doesn't allow for such speculation. According to the Big Bang theory, the universe as we know it evolved from a catastrophic explosion. Is this the best "science" that evolutionists have to offer? It is NOT science at all. How could a universe of order and symmetry have evolved out of a chaotic explosion? There is simply too much order and perfect balance in the universe for it to have been AN ACCIDENT. Creation has ORDER and STRUCTURE, which can only logically be attributed to a DIVINE Creator. Hebrews 11:3 declares..."Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear."
Humans and Animals NOT Related
Charles Darwin and his "Origen of the Species" made many absurd claims. Few people today realize that Charles Darwin taught that Blacks, i.e., Africans, were proof that man evolved from primitive ape-like creatures. Nothing could be further from the truth. ALL men are created equal in God's eyes. Jesus Christ died upon the cross for ALL humanity! Mankind and animals did NOT evolve! People are people and animals are animals (1st Corinthians 15:39). It's stupid when people say people are animals. No we're NOT!!! The Bible clearly teaches that birds are birds, and fish are fish, and men are men... "All flesh is not the same flesh: but there is one kind of flesh of men, another flesh of beasts, another of fishes, and another of birds" (1st Corinthians 15:39). People are NOT animals, and animals are NOT people.
Here's something to think about... If people are animals, then bestiality must be acceptable and right. That's exactly what evolutionists are claiming. If people are actually a form of animal, then having sex with animals must be ok. Such reasoning just proves the retarded mentality behind the theory of evolution. God created human beings completely separate from the animal world. There is no biological relation. Evolution is a rotten lie intended to provide a lame excuse for unbelievers to reject God and His Word, the Bible.
If evolutionists are correct, where did humans and animals split in the evolution chain? And if they did spilt, why didn't ANY of the animal species develop the high-intelligence of human beings? Though animals and dolphins have been trained to do some remarkable things, they are still very BASIC intelligence level activities. Consider Koko the ape. No monkey has ever been able to write a book, or learn how to read, or learn how to write. Scientists have tried DESPERATELY to educate a monkey just as if it were a child... to no avail. A monkey does NOT have the same brain cells of a human being, because God didn't make them that way. Genesis 1:27 declares... "So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them." Mankind is created in God's own image. No monkey, dolphin, or test lab rat was ever created in God's image. Psalm 8:5 says..."For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour." No such beautiful words were ever spoken in the Scriptures concerning any animals. Do you see why the teaching of evolution is blasphemy against a Divine Creator?
ONLY mankind has a wicked sin-nature, which evolution CANNOT account for. It makes infinite more sense to believe and obey the Bible, which DOES give a full account for mans wickedness. We are sinners!
