First we will hit on the main points as to why evolution is incompatible with God:

After reading the above comparison, can anyone explain how evolution became the exact opposite of God's creation? According to God's word, there is only one thing that is the direct opposite of what good is (God). And that is evil. Pure evil is the only thing that can be the "exact" opposite. But maybe this is not convincing enough for the reader? Okay, let's take it a step further.
If God used evolution to create, then evolution should be used to bring people to salvation. I have yet to see anyone saved, or come to Christ due to a sermon on evolution. An idea that cannot lead to the kingdom of God, is not of God. Salvation is the main goal of the gospel. So if the gospel of evolution cannot lead someone to salvation in our schools, colleges, or where ever it is taught. Then God did not use it to create. It is just that simple. For what does not bring you to salvation, actually denies it. And what denies salvation can destroy your faith in what brings salvation through doubt.
The opposite mindset that being a theistic evolutionist, teaches you how to be against God and your own faith.
| What God's word teaches the believer.
|| What evolution teaches the believer.|
| 1) To be humble.
|| 1) To argue.|
| 2) To believe in physical and spiritual things.
|| 2) To only believe in what you see.|
| 3) To believe the word of God.
|| 3) To question the word of God.|
| 4) To respect the word of God.
|| 4) To scoff at the word of God.|
| 5) To believe the word literally.
|| 5) To mock the literal word of God.|
| 6) To be an individual with God.
|| 6) To be with majority view.|
| 7) To look for God's approval.
|| 7) To seek man's approval.|
Bible scoffing vs. theistic evolution:
To scoff at: derisively: in a disrespectful and mocking manner... To call names and make fun of. To categorize someone into a group that is considered stupid or uneducated etc...
And what does the Bible say about the scoffer?
2 Peter 3:3 Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts,
4 And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.
5 For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water:
6 Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished:
1) They will question the coming of Christ.
2) They will question the Biblical time-line, and the age of the earth according to this time-line.
3) They will question the world wide flood.
So basically this makes being a theistic evolutionists an actual training program for being a full fledged Bible scoffer. Because a theistic evolutionist has to question 2 of the 3 things required to be considered a full Bible scoffer. So being a theistic evolutionist, you are 2/3's the way there. Just add the denial of Christ's return and you become 3 out of 3 which = full fledged Bible scoffer. Will Bible scoffers enter Heaven? Better think about that.
But let's give this a Biblical test instead of making it look like my opinion:
1) If evolution is truly of Satan, then it cannot work against his kingdom.
| Matthew 12:26 And if Satan cast out Satan, he is divided against himself; how shall then his kingdom stand?|
| Mark 3:26 And if Satan rise up against himself, and be divided, he cannot stand, but hath an end.|
And this confirms why there is no evolution revivals, evolutionists for Christ, evolutionists missionaries, etc... Satan cannot be against himself. And what is his main goal? To destroy your soul. Don't believe me? Here is a website run by people who believe in evolution. And notice what their main theme is. Have a soul you are not using? But let's test this even further Biblically. Who controls the drawing power that makes people come forward for Christ? Father God does.
| John 6:44 No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day.|
So what this proves is that a ministry idea, music, doctrine etc... Has to be approved by God Himself before it can draw anyone to Christ. Evolution does none of this and never has. In fact, Darwin was a Christian and had a degree in theology. When he decided to write his theory of evolution, what do you think was the first thing he had to do? Deny God.
| The Old Testament, from it's manifestly false history of the earth, was no more trusted than the sacred books of the Hindus, or the beliefs of barbarians. The New Testament is a damnable doctrine. I can hardly see how anyone ought to wish Christianity to be true, for if so, the plain language of the text seems to show that the men who do not believe, and this would include my Father, Brother, and almost all my best friends, will be everlastingly punished. And this is a damnable doctrine. Darwin.|
In 1876, in his Autobiography, Darwin wrote:
| Formerly I was led... to the firm conviction of the existence of God and the immortality of the soul. In my Journal I wrote that whilst standing in the midst of the grandeur of a Brazilian forest, 'it is not possible to give an adequate idea of the higher feelings of wonder, admiration, and devotion, which fill and elevate the mind.' I well remember my conviction that there is more in man than the mere breath of his body. But now the grandest scenes would not cause any suchconvictions and feelings to rise in my mind|
In 1880, in reply to a correspondent, Charles wrote:
| I am sorry to have to inform you that I do not believe in the Bible as a divine revelation, & therefore not in Jesus Christ as the son of God.|
What is of God cannot make people turn away from God because God is not corruptible. So evolution has not and never will be used to bring someone to salvation because only the truth of God can do this.
As one evolutionist puts it:
Science, is fundamentally, a game with one over riding and defining rule:
Let's see how far, and to what extent we can explain the behavior of the physical and material universe in terms of purely physical and material causes without "EVER" invoking the supernatural. [Involving God] in the explanation constitutes a form of intellectual cheating. A chess player is perfectly capable of smashing his opponents king on the floor during a tournament, but this does not make him a champion because the rules were not followed. Evolution is not promoted because of overwhelming evidence in it's favor, nor is creation rejected for lack of evidence. The biblical creation model is simply ignored because scientists are trained to ignore this possibility. They would be accused of "cheating" if they did accept the evidence for creation.
Richard Dickerson (Biochemist-evolutionist) Member of National Academy of science. February 1, a closer look at the evidence.
Thus the very reason every scientist is thrown out of scientific circles, discredited, and barred. If they accept the creation model, and happen to become a Christian in the process.
