Creation vs Evolution

We compare the theory of evolution with the Bible’s creation account in easy-to-understand terms, using evidence from the fields of paleontology, geology, biology, and astronomy. We provide links and a bibliography for those who want to study both sides of the issue. We fully explain all the scientific terms on this page.

Note: This page is long. It may be easier to read if you print it out on paper. Print one test page first, as some browser/printer combinations make this text very light.

A WESLEYAN VISION OF THE CHRISTIAN LIFE
At the heart of the universe there is a heart of grace. This grace is offered to all, even before we become aware of God or our need for his mercy. None is deserving of this grace, but none are excluded from God’s generous offer of life in Christ. This is what we call prevenient grace—God’s wooing of us before we even know him.

This prevenient grace takes expression in the goodness of God’s creation, which provides for our needs and which creates within us a sense of wonder and joy. This grace also shows itself in the order and majesty of the universe, which points us to a Creator. And this grace is also demonstrated in our own human nature, formed in the image of God, with a conscience that tells us that we are moral beings, fearfully and wonderfully made. At the same time, it makes us aware that we are unable to live by what we know to be right – that we require forgiveness and mercy. God’s grace penetrates our denial and self-justification to awaken us to the reality that we are inherently self-centered and prone to hurt others and violate our conscience in order to get what we want.

About Church Attendance

I often hear from Christians who are disillusioned with the thought of going to church. Bad experiences have left a bitter taste in their mouths and in most cases they’ve given up entirely on the practice of attending a local church. Here is a letter from one:

Hi Mary,
I was reading your instructions on how to grow as a Christian, where you state that we need to go to church. Well that’s where I have to differ, because it does not sit well with me when the church’s concern is one’s income. I have been to several churches and they always ask about income.
