The Vatican Sponsored a Conference to Determine the Compatibility of Evolution and Creation

PDFBy Jimmy DeYoung

In a five-day conference at the Vatican in Rome to mark the 150th anniversary of the publication of Charles Darwin's Origin of Species, the discussion will be the potential compatibility between Evolution and Creation.

Scientists, philosophers and theologians from around the world gathered to reexamine the work of scientific thinkers whose revolutionary ideas have challenged religious beliefs.

Christian churches have long been hostile to Darwin because his theory conflicted with the literal, biblical account of Creation; however, the Catholic church has never condemned Darwin, even though a leading cardinal, a friend of Pope Benedict, said Darwin's theory of Natural Selection was incompatible with Christian belief.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

Compatibility between Evolution and Creation is a contradiction of terms and the discussion of the two is part of the discussions that will be held in the Last Days.

For the last 150 years, there has been a debate between true Bible believers and the proponents of Evolution. This debate started in the classroom, moved to the courtroom and then to the legislatures of the legislative bodies around the world and now into the halls of religious belief.

The biblical account of Creation found in Genesis 1 and 2, confirms that the origins of life are from the God of the Bible and all true Christians will accept this as the final authority. There is an interesting connection between this discussion about Evolution and Creation and the Second Coming of Jesus Christ. Bible prophecy says there will be those who will deny the Second Coming of Jesus Christ because they walk after their own lust, II Peter 3:4. These same Second Coming deniers will also deny that Jesus is the Creator, the One who spoke the worlds into existence, II Peter 3:5-6. These people who deny Jesus Christ is coming again and that He is the Creator are people who are "dumb on purpose".

An international conference to discuss the compatibility of Evolution and Creation is a current event that is setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.
