171 Question. What do Atheistic Evolutionists believe?
Answer. Atheistic Evolutionists reject the biblical doctrine of creation and providence and believe that the world came into existence without the power of God, and that its present form does not depend on him but has evolved by supposed “chance”.
172 Q. What do Theistic Evolutionists believe?
A. Theistic Evolutionists profess to believe in the existence and power of God but contend that the Scripture account of creation is unreliable or figurative, and that the history of the natural world is in accordance with evolutionary theory.
173 Q. Have modern scientists proved the theory of Evolution?
A. No, Evolution is a theory and has not been proven nor can be proven.
174 Q. What biblical doctrines does the theory of Evolution undermine?
A. The theory of Evolution inevitably undermines the biblical doctrines of the inerrancy of Scripture, the Creation, the Fall of Adam, the nature of Original Sin, the nature of Man, the Incarnation and Redemption of Christ, and the Resurrection of the body, as also many other related truths.
175 Q. Is belief in the theory of Evolution consistent with honest subscription to the terms of the Westminster Confession of Faith?
A. The Confession, in accordance with Scripture, plainly teaches that God made the world out of nothing in the space of six natural days and all very good, and so subscribing to this teaching is inconsistent with belief in the theory of Evolution.
