Evolutionary Theory

Lately I’ve been engaged in discussions with proponents of macro-evolution, discussing the mainstream arguments against Intelligent Design.

As a believer in Jesus Christ, and with a logical basis for my faith, I find these discussions to be edifying, rather than trying. I have met many a civil person with whom I may discuss theories. Although, I have been equally met with insulation, despite the cordiality of my statements.

It is sad indeed, when two people of opposing beliefs cannot share some sentiment of respect between each other and keep from agression.

In light of such things, I am reminded of my favorite verse in scripture:

(I Cor. – NKJV) 13 If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing.

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part, 10 but when completeness comes, what is in part disappears.11 When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me. 12 For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known. 13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love

    Keep up the good fight, my friend. I too have had discussions of this nature, so I know what you mean.
