Why The Bible Does Not Teach Evolution

(A missionary pastor in Ireland, Bro. Bob Zemeski, recently posted this on a mailing list which I thought I would pass along to you on my blog. It is short, but very concise and gives a clear defense on why the Bible and Evolution do not mix. One is completely false!!! Friend, do you have faith in God and His written word to mankind, the Bible, or are you trusting in the so-called scientific theory of man?????)

Rom. 5:12-21 Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned: (For until the law sin was in the world: but sin is not imputed when there is no law. Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over them that had not sinned after the similitude of Adam's transgression, who is the figure of him that was to come. But not as the offence, so also is the free gift. For if through the offence of one many be dead, much more the grace of God, and the gift by grace, which is by one man, Jesus Christ, hath abounded unto many. And not as it was by one that sinned, so is the gift: for the judgment was by one to condemnation, but the free gift is of many offences unto justification. For if by one man's offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.) Therefore as by the offence of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life. For as by one man's disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous. Moreover the law entered, that the offence might abound. But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound: That as sin hath reigned unto death, even so might grace reign through righteousness unto eternal life by Jesus Christ our Lord.

1. Vs. 12 - If Adam was not a real person we are not sinners.
2. Vs. 14 - If Adam was not a real person neither is Moses a real person.
3. Vs. 13 - If there is no Moses there are no 10 Commandments to break or condemn us.
4. Vs. 14 - If there is no Moses or Adam, there is no revelation as to why we die.
5. If Adam was not a real the entire argument of Rom. 5:12-21 is irrelevant if the Genesis record of creation and fall of Adam did not happen as recorded in Gen. 1-3.
6. If Adam didn't fall into sin bringing condemnation to mankind it would mean there is no reality in the saving work of the Lord Jesus Christ!
7. Destroying or distorting the creation record undermines and eventually destroys the gospel of salvation.
8. Giving of the Law by Moses magnifies the sinfulness of sin and the greatness of grace.
9. Sin has many faces, but it is basically the rejection of God as Creator and Saviour by rejecting His Word.
a. Sin originated in the heavens when Satan rejected God's Word (Isa. 14:13; Ezek. 28:15).
b. Sin entered the earth when Adam did the same (Gen. 3:1, 4, 17; Rom. 5:12).
c. Sin in practice is thus basically disbelief of God's Word (Rom. 10:15-17; 14:23 - "for whatsoever is not of faith is sin"; Jn 16:8-9) and disobeying God's Law (Rom. 3:20; 5:20; 1 Jn. 3:4).
d. God's judgement on sinners will be based on the words of Moses (Jn 5:43-47), the words of Christ (Jn. 12:44-50), and the words of God's Book (Rev. 20:12-15; 22:18-19).
