In 2011, over 10,000 pastors signed a statement in support of evolution. Hundreds of them even promoted evolution in their churches on what was dubbed “Evolution Sunday” in celebration of Darwin’s birthday.
If a pastor accepts evolution and an old earth, he must believe that God used death and bloodshed over millions of years. This destroys the foundation of the atonement/gospel message.
The Bible says that Death entered the world…ALL DEATH…as a result of the Fall of man (Genesis 3:19, Romans 5:12).
