Evolution is simply the latest means our fallen race has devised in order to suppress our innate knowledge and the biblical testimony that there is a God and that we are accountable to Him (cf. Romans ). By embracing evolution, modern society aims to do away with morality, responsibility, and guilt. Even though Christianity leads people to salvation, happiness, and a “true self,” one cannot be a Christian simply to achieve these rewards. As Lewis has argued since Book One, Christianity often emerges from a sense of despair—a sense of moral inadequacy, for which the only “cure” is Jesus Christ.
Christianity is the most widely practiced religion in the world, with more than 2 billion followers. The Christian faith centers on beliefs regarding the birth, life, death and resurrection of. The Evolution of Christianity Christianity itself has evolved over the centuries. In order to survive it has had to change and adapt. Many religions and many branches of Christianity have become extinct over the centuries. In order to survive, Christianity has had to merge with the cultures of other religions.

LET THE BIBLE SAY WHAT THE BIBLE NEEDS TO SAY. Some of them adopted Gray’s view that evolution was God’s method of creation. 7 The evolution of Christianity book argued that since Darwin explained away the apparent design in nature, it was compatible only with atheism.
8 Some scholars accepted Darwin’s argument for common ancestry, but rejected the idea of natural selection, either for scientific, philosophical. Evolution has provided a new understanding of reality, with revolutionary consequences for Christianity.
In an evolutionary perspective the incarnation involved God entering the evolving human species to help it imitate the trinitarian altruism in whose image it was created and counter its tendency to self-absorption. Primarily, however, the evolutionary achievement of Jesus was to confront. ILLUMINATION AWARD: Gold, Theology “This book asks what science can teach Christian theologians about our own self-understanding.”—From the Preface Faith and Evolution offers a constructive way of understanding basic Christian doctrines, which were formulated in an ancient culture and language, while at the same time acknowledging scientific concepts that shape our current.
8. The Christian faith is compatible with different scientific theories of origins, from young-earth creationism to evolutionary creationism, but it is incompatible with any view that rejects God.

The most fundamental debate over evolution is arguable whether evolutionary theory contradicts or is incompatible with religious beliefs. In an ideal world, this question wouldn't be relevant -- no one debates whether plate tectonics contradicts religion.
