4. Is the theory of evolution compatible with what the Bible teaches?



No, it isn’t, because the theory of evolution first of all states that there was no act of creation (done by God) by which the universe came into being, secondly it states that the planet earth evolved during billions of years until it became as it is now; and thirdly it states that the human being at the beginning was a monkey (or a brute) and afterward he evolved during billions of years until he became the being we know today. And all these theories are contrary to the Word of God, which states that it was God who created the heavens, the earth, the sea and all the things which are in them, as it is written: “Lord, thou art God, which hast made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and all that in them is” (Acts 4:24), therefore all these things did not come into being by an accidental explosion (the so called ‘big bang’) but by the will and power of God.

Furthermore, all these things were created just as we know them today, and they were created in six days (of 24 hours), for according to the Bible all the creation lasted six days (Genesis 1:1-31; 2:1-3; Exodus 20:11).

As for man, who is a creature made by God, the Word of God states that God created him in His own image and in His likeness on the sixth day, and he was able to speak, to hear, to argue, to think, to make a choice, to give names to the livestock, the birds of the air and all the beasts of the field (Genesis 1:27; 2:7-20). This excludes that at the beginning man was a monkey or a brute and after an evolution which lasted millions or billions of years he became that intelligent being we know he is.

Therefore, the theory of evolution must be rejected because it is a lie conceived of the devil, the enemy of God, who deceives people into believing all kinds of lies because he is a liar and the father of lies (John 8:44).

In conclusion, I warn you also against the theory of evolution endorsed and taught by the Roman Catholic Church, for while on the one hand its adherents acknowledge the act of creation (done by God) – therefore they hold that both the origin of the earth and the origin of man is referable to God – on the other hand – with regard to the earth - they state that first God created the matter and then during billions of years He caused the matter to evolve and to become the earth as we know it today, and with regard to man they state that first God created a lower being (a monkey or a brute) from which after billions of years He caused man to descend. Know this, that even this theory is a lie.
