How about this for a rambling note
about how I should view evolution??
I am narrow minded. I did say you should be open minded, but challenged you to Biblical. Jesus Christ said that Adam was in the beginning. Do you know the limiting factors. Just from a scientific perspective that are lots of facts that do limit the age of the earth.
I will not and can not be open minded when it comes to God and His word. I am fundamental in my believes. And see evolution as a faith that has no scientific origin.
The fact that we see changes in the different kinds of animals does not make a elephant out of a mouse. Cosmic evolution is a faith just as Creation is. Consequently when men start making God in to a monkey, for said He let us make man in our own image (Genesis 1:26) , it is clear that they became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart are darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools.(Rom 1:19-23)
Jesus said: Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
So if you are by own admission broad 'open-minded' surely you are on a way that leads to destruction. The Word of God will be our guide and not some philosophy of unbelievers.
Again is point out to you that death came after Adam sinned, not millions of years ago in some primarily soup. Death came in the garden of eden. (1Co 15:21-22)
I don't know it all, but my God does. You don't know it all and certainty not those who think themselves to be wise.
For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God. For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent. Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world? For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe. For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom: But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumblingblock, and unto the Greeks foolishness; But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God. (1 Corinthians 1:18-24)
I could give you a thousand video clips to look at, but O what will it profit you if all you find is the opinions of man.
