“You are worthy, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will they were created and have their being.” Revelation 4:11.
Jesus would not have been much of a Jesus had He needed a time consuming process, rather than a moment, to complete his many acts of miraculous healing. Likewise, God would not have been much of a god had He depended on the ages-long processes of evolution to gradually fashion human beings “in(to) His image”. Who needs a god who creates by a supernatural process of trial and error?
In a nutshell this is why I do not believe in theistic evolution or evolutionary creationism.
Honestly, why would I trust with anything else a god who is unable to call into existence time, space, life and our universe at will, in a moment, and out of a perfect design born in His own mind? God who is not able to surprise me by going far beyond the final frontiers of my imagination, who is chained by the limitations of my own mind and ignorance, does not deserve to be a god at all. I do not want to place my hopes in this life, nor for the future beyond in the hands of a god who looks more like Dr. Frankenstein – experimenting, testing, trying, failing, sometimes succeeding.
This is why I trust in the God of the overwhelming power, who is able to surprise me beyond my wildest dreams and expectations; God whom my words are insufficient to explain, and my science inadequate to define. He released His unimaginable power at the time of Creation. He did it again at the time of Jesus’ resurrection. And He will do it again at the time of His second appearing – not through a spiritual evolution that will gradually unveil His kingdom, but in a brutally surprising, powerful, dreadful and sweet moment, “in a twinkling of an eye” 1. Cor. 15:52.
I like the words of Paul: “What no eye has seen, what no ear has heard, and what human mind has conceived, those things God has prepared for those who love Him.” 1. Cor. 2:9. He does not depend on the patchworks of evolution to create and design. His powerful word is enough.
