To Barbarian and others who concludes, on the basis of scientific findings, that God created by evolution, including Adam.
Remember He only used nature to make our bodies. Our souls are given immediately by Him to each of us.
The Christian believe that God intended and purposely created man from the beginning of creation.
Genesis notes what was there in the beginning and man was not.
Now, the Christian scientist explains that man was created by God by evolution from a simple living organism.
No. From other primates.
If that were the case, then all stages of the evolution of man are nothing but necessary evolutionary stages of the intended and planned creation of man by God and so, these stages may well be treated as creation or creatures that God did not really intend as an end, which is the human, in this case.
Given that God seems to be rather elegant in His creation, I'm thinking that all creatures have a purpose in the larger scheme of things.
And millions of years passed and so evolved the homo genus, the human being, man. The scientists say, that happened several million years ago. But when was Adam created according to God, in scriptures?
He didn't provide a timeline. I'm thinking that probably means it wasn't important to what He wanted to tell us therein.
The Christian, based on scriptures, counts it to only some 6,000+ years ago
Some modern Christians do. But not most of them.
or as some calculates to be up to 12,000 years ago, but nowhere by the hundred thousands of years ago.
About 150 years ago, the great Baptist evangelist Charles Spurgeon, thought that it was millions of years old. That is what Bryan said for the Creationist side in the Scopes trial. That was before the Adventists invented YE creationism.
So, evolution did not end but continue on for still millions of years. Now, of the human (homo) genus, there are said to be many species that evolved. And Adam could not belong to all species. Now, which among these species does Adam belong, him who was the intended creation of God?
Would it offend you if the first humans were H. erectus instead of H. sapiens? How about Neandertals? You think they were human? Denesovans? Why does it mean anything at all to you?
Let's see. Since God said in scriptures that we have come from the kind of Adam,
Most creationists says "kind"is genus or family. So that would include every species of homo.
Adam must be of the same species
Genus or family. If you want to use the creationist idea of "kind."
1. Has the Homo Sapien stopped evolving since it is this species that God have intended to create in Adam?
Nope. We've seen quite a number of useful mutations become established in the population.
If man continue to evolve as scientist say:
2. What does that make of the omnipotent and sovereign God?
Rather amazing in His power and creativity.
3. What does that make of the present evolved modern man to be?
Beloved of God, Who wants all of us to share Heaven with Him.
4. Will man evolve to be some still different sub species?
Could happen, although present travel and migration probably makes that unlikely.
5. When will the evolution of man end?
When there are no more humans in this world.
6. How do you interpret how God created Eve?
Created like the other animals, but then God directly gave her an immortal soul.
7. How do you interpret the fall of Adam?
Act of disobedience.
8. How do yo interpret Adam
The first person to have an immortal soul.
and the garden of Eden?
Where Adam and Eve lived in complete grace with God.
