Calling upon Darwinian evolution, Hitler convinced the German public that purging millions of people was acceptable because of the need to create a pure race. This practice is known as eugenics. American students have been educated in Darwinian evolution because the Supreme Court has ruled that Creationism cannot be taught in our schools—even if both are taught side by side.
Evolutionary humanism denies the Creator God, and since we are all just an accident of nature, there is no absolute truth and no ultimate Judge. “Might makes right.” Therefore, many will justify a global government that oppresses dissenters.
Evolution has played a leading role in setting the stage for global governance, and the acceptance of Darwinian evolution by the culture and the false church has set the stage for the global false church to embrace spiritual evolution, the foundation for the global world religion. Just as survival of the fittest was accepted by Germans for the slaughter of eleven million Jews and non-Jews, so it will again cause the world to accept the slaughter of millions in the coming holocaust of the Antichrist. Zechariah 13:8-9 describes the scenario in which two out of three Jews will be killed by the Antichrist.
Biblical creation is rejected by the majority of so-called evangelicals today, and it has been replaced by the acceptance of theistic evolution. While Darwin’s theory of evolution has been readily accepted by all mainstream liberal churches (those belonging to the National and World Council of Churches), it also has made inroads into evangelical churches and colleges. This issue alone could comprise a book, but the one major surprise is certainly the Nazarene denomination and its pro-evolution colleges.
Nazarene churches for the most part were at one time fundamental, evangelical, evangelistic, and orthodox. Yet, many of their colleges (Point Loma Nazarene University and Eastern Nazarene College, to name two) reek with Darwinism. Their college bookstores promote Darrel R. Falk’s Coming to Peace with Science: Bridging the World Between Faith and Biology (InterVarsity Press, 2004), but you will not find any anti-Darwin works in order to give students both sides of the issue. Why not allow students to at least read Stephen C. Meyer’s article in the August 4, 2004, Proceedings of the Biological Society of Washington which challenges the theory of Darwinian evolution? It certainly wouldn’t hurt the students, but it might hurt their evolutionary professors’ claims to fairness and scholarship.
Point Loma’s biology professor, Darrel R. Falk, is also the head of BioLogos, a theistic evolution organization which brings its evolution message to hundreds of evangelical churches. It is a scandal in the making. You will not likely find any information or even a word of warning from this organization on Darwin’s relationship to Adolph Hitler and his Nazism or Joseph Stalin and his communism. Darwinian evolution was the biological basis of both of those death-dealing political movements.
BioLogos is also weak on Adam and Even. Most theistic evolutionists deny our first parents, and most theistic evolutionsists avoid like the plague any discussion relating to the Cambrian period’s trilobite fossils (there was no duobite or monobite) and the coelacanth fish.
Pastor Tim Keller, as we shall examine in a later chapter, embraces socialist justice, but he also supports BioLogos. A March 30, 2012, Christianity Today article reported that “evangelical evolutionists meet in New York,” and it noted some of the participants:
[quote] Attending were such luminaries as N.T. Wright, Alister McGrath, John Ortberg, Tim Keller, Scot McKnight, Os Guinness, Joel Hunter, and Andy Crouch…This year’s program centered on concerns for the church—especially for young people who feel torn between science and the Bible. [end quote]
Tim Keller is quoted in the article as saying, “To develop a BioLogos narrative is the job of pastors.” So the job of pastors is to undermine the authority of Scripture and dillute the purpose and need of the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ due to original sin? This is what BioLogos adherents are doing when they deny the biblical and historical persons of Adam and Eve and the original sin that entered into the world through the Fall.
Dr. Albert Mohler, president of Southern Seminary, addresses the distorted theology and worldview of Biologos:
[quote] Writers for BioLogos have repeatedly made the case that we must relinquish the inerrancy of the Bible and accept that the biblical writers worked from a defective understanding of the world and its origins. They have asserted, for example, that the Apostle Paul was simply wrong in assuming that Adam was an historical person from whom all humans are descended. They have been bold and honest in rejecting the biblical account of the Fall as historical. They have warned that an affirmation of biblical inerrancy has led evangelicalism into an “intellectual cul-de-sac.” [end quote]
[quote] They are embarrassed by the fact that a majority of evangelicals reject evolution, and they honestly believe that some people will not come to know Christ because they are so offended by our unwillingness to accept evolution. They have repeatedly asserted that the credibility and integrity of our Christian witness is at stake. [end quote]
The writers for BioLogos have been unsparing in their criticism of evangelicals who believe in the inerrancy of the Bible or are proponents of either Intelligent Design or creationism.
John Upchurch of Answers in Genesis explained in a 2011 article entitled “The Danger of BioLogos” the way that BioLogos attacks the Gospel:
[quote] In their effort to reconcile evolution with the Bible, proponents of theistic evolution also wipe away the cosmic impact of the Curse and of Christ’s full redemptive work. Romans 8:22 makes it clear that the whole creation groans as a result of Adam’s sin. Acts 3:21 and Colossians 1:15–20 teach that when Christ, the Creator of all things, comes again He will restore all things. At that time, the Curse of Genesis 3 will be removed, and a glorious new heavens and earth will exist (Revelation 22:3).
The denial of a “first couple” similarly attacks the gospel. “Jesus and the apostle Paul clearly consider Adam and Eve to be historical,” explains theologian Cal Beisner. “Paul makes our whole understanding of the relationship between the redeemed and Christ contingent on Adam’s being a historical individual just as Christ is (Romans 5:12–19; 1 Corinthians 15:22, 15:46–49). Take away Adam as a historical person, and the whole understanding of the federal (covenantal) relationship between Christ and believers collapses—and with it the gospel of justification by grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone because of the federal (covenantal) imputation of His righteousness to believers.” [end quote]
Then there the disturbing fact that the John Templeton Foundation provided funds to launch BioLogos. The website for the foundation explains its purpose:
[quote] These grants support the launch of the BioLogos Foundation with the creation of a website and a series of workshops on the compatibility of theism and evolutionary science. The website will serve as a forum for Francis Collins and other expert consultants to address common questions about the relationship between faith and science. The invitation-only workshops will bring scientists and evangelical leaders together to seek a theology more accepting of science, specifically evolutionary biology. [end quote]
John Templeton was a promoter of pagan spirituality who wanted to establish a world religion “about God that doesn’t rely on ancient revelations or scripture.”
If a man is known by the company he keeps, this tells us a lot about the discernment of N.T. Wright, Alister McGrath, John Ortberg, Tim Keller, Scot McKnight, Os Guinness, Joel Hunter, and Andy Crouch, does it not? When so called “evangelicals” support Darwinian evolution, they assist in promoting a foundational philosophy of the growing global false church that will use Darwinian evolution to promote spiritual evolution, the foundation for the global world religion. Spiritual evolution teaches that morals, society, the law, family and marriage, and religion all evolve, and, ultimately, that man evolves as he understands his own deity and god consciousness. As man supposedly comes to understand his oneness with nature, god, and each other through pantheism and panentheism the realization leads to a world religion that ties all the pieces together through a religious view of collective salvation derived from economics, government, politics, ecology, sustainable development, and all of life. Thus, a world religious system or false global church, will be the vehicle to achieve a political and economic global governance that will lead to the religious Reich.
