Satan is Responsible for Evolution

It is tough keeping up with letters to the editor about Evil-ution. Here is one in today's Elizabethton Star:

After reading your article on Feb. 11, 2008, titled "Evolution vs. creationism" I felt compelled as a Christian to respond.

Your article describes the theory of evolution as "Evil" and rightly so. This theory is a deceiving conclusion to man's existence propelled by Satan, the author of all lies. The Holy Bible clearly states in Gen. 1:27 "God created man in his own image."

Our constitution grants us the freedom of religion. This freedom gives us the right to worship God, not to worship false idols or to teach our children false doctrines.

As for the problem that is facing Britain, the fear of putting evolution in their teaching. They should omit this false teaching entirely. What should be taught to our children is the Gospel of Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God, born of a virgin, crucified for our sins, arose in three days and now sits on the right hand of God.

The Bible also instructs us in Gal. 1:8 "That if any man, even an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel to you, let him be accursed."

Christians, stand up and be heard. Tell your educators and lawmakers that we want our children to be taught the true Word of God. In Luke 12:8, Christ says, "Whosever shall confess me before men, him shall the Son of Man confess before the angels of God."
