Evolution and the Decline of Ethics & Morality

A good friend of mine once told me, “If it doesn't make sense, you are seeing spiritual warfare.” - Vern

Are you wondering what's happening to our world? School shootings. Every other person seems to be tattooed, pierced or both. Over 55 million abortions since 1973. The government is becoming our saviour. Truth has become whatever each individual wants it to be. And there is a growing feeling of hopelessness and despair.

The behaviours we're seeing and the decisions being made make no sense. I think my friend is right. We're seeing spiritual warfare on a major scale and evolution is one of Satan's “big guns.”

Frank Zindler, a leading atheist debater, got it right when he said:

Evoltion destroys Christianity“The most devastating thing, though, that biology did to Christianity was the discovery of biological evolution. Now that we know that Adam and Eve never were real people, the central myth of Christianity is destroyed. If there never was an Adam and Eve, there never was an original sin. If there never was an original sin, there is no need of salvation. If there is no need of salvation, there is no need of a savior. And I submit that puts Jesus, historical or otherwise, into the ranks of the unemployed. I think that evolution is absolutely the death knell of Christianity.”

Satan's plan has not changed. The promise is “you can be like God.” He is using evolution to make it appear he can deliver on that promise.

“The liberal-humane fiction of the equality of all people was surely one of the most arbitrary, ignorant things that the human mind has ever devised.” - Christian von Ehrenfels, Founder of Gestalt Psychology

What beliefs and behaviours are encouraged by evolution?

1. Change is for the better
2. Some people are superior
3. Life has no intrinsic value
4. Life has no purpose or reason

If evolutionary change results in people who are superior to others, doesn't it make sense for them to be in charge? Obviously the superior people should be making the decisions, because they make the right decisions. And because they have great compassion, they will take care of everyone else. What this leads to is bigger government. A government whose purpose is to “take care” of everyone else. A supposed benevolent aristocracy.

Evolution and the U.S. CongressEvolutionary thinking has been happening in government for decades. For example, the legislative branch is supposed to be where the laws are made. But, recognizing there are people with superior knowledge the Congress has given that law making authority to agencies such as OSHA, EPA, MSHA and others. These agencies write regulations that have the force of law (legislative). They enforce those regulations and levy penalties (executive). They adjudicate disputes (judicial). All three branches of government are rolled into one agency because... of course, they are the experts.

The result is a separate class of people, the superior, the experts who make the rules for everyone else, but are not subject to rules. It should be obvious they are superior and don't need the guidance of the “rules.”

Evolution Results In AristocracySince change is constantly makes things better, we need to embrace change and even seek what is new, because it will be better. As a result some American courts have turned to “more advanced” Europe for legal precedence. And we see European countries refusing to honour extradition treaties because of, for example, the “barbaric” treatment of child molesters in America5 (we keep repeat offenders away from children).

The truth is, evolutionary ethics can be used to justify whatever you want to do. Richard Weikart wrote about social Darwinists in the early 20th century, “Their proposals for sexual reform were, in fact, wildly divergent, ranging from free sex to monogamy (though often with loop-holes) to polygamy. Some even called on evolutionary ethics to justify homosexuality. Evolutionary ethics thus seemed to offer proponents just about whatever sexual morality they preferred.”

What happens when life has no intrinsic value? 55 million abortions, mostly just for convenience. In the “more advanced” country of the Netherlands 8% of newborn babies are killed. It doesn't matter, they are just chemicals and random mutations.

“The procreation of sick, degenerate children is the most serious crime that a person could ever commit.” - Gustov von Bunge

Evolution - eat, drink and be merryIf there is no purpose or reason for life and we are just the result of random mutations – random mistakes – what does it matter what we do? Live for the moment. What happens to future generations does not matter. Eat, drink and be merry. Hedonism, pleasure and narcissism are the rule not the exception. Don't worry, there is no God, or if there is he is an all-forgiving god. Morality is whatever the majority says it is (until someone with greater power changes the rules).

In an opinion article for Fox News Dr. Keith Ablow wrote about a study that has been on-going for 47 years and includes data from 9 million young adults. The study shows that today's college students “call themselves gifted and driven to succeed, even though their test scores and time spent studying are decreasing.”

In describing a study by psychologist Jean Twenge, the article reported “the tendency toward narcissism in students is up 30 percent in the last thirty-odd years”

“Dr. Ablow notes that, “False pride can never be sustained. The bubble of narcissism is always at risk of bursting. That’s why young people are higher on drugs than ever, drunker than ever, smoking more, tattooed more, pierced more and having more and more and more sex, earlier and earlier and earlier, raising babies before they can do it well, because it makes them feel special, for a while. They’re doing anything to distract themselves from the fact that they feel empty inside and unworthy.”

Dr. Abow concludes that the result we can expect is “an epidemic of depression and suicidality, not to mention homicidality, as the real self-loathing and hatred of others that lies beneath all this narcissism rises to the surface.”

The study is measuring the result of over 150 years of evolutionary teaching and thinking. The lessons have been learned and are now being lived out. We see not just our youth, but a growing majority living in conformity to the principles of evolution and social Darwinism.

Are we paying attention to this war? In most cases the evolution vs. Bible debate is being fought on the fields of science and intellectual knowledge. And that's needed. But, we should never forget that this is just one battlefield. We are in a major spiritual war with only one way of winning... the cross and the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Phil Johnson, the executive director of Grace To You noted, “Evangelicals and fundamentalists were all swept up in prohibition. They wanted to outlaw liquor and they managed to do it. They made it illegal. And in the process they totally lost their focus on the gospel. I don't think either movement, evangelicals or fundamentalists, ever really recovered their focus, their proper focus on the gospel.”

Without the gospel the battle over Biblical creation is lost. Without the gospel your neighbors, friends and family are lost. Without the gospel humanity is lost.

We are in a spiritual war and we cannot leave the gospel in the pages of the Bible. We need to take it out, put it on our lips, and speak it to the world. We are told to go and make disciples. That is a command not a suggestion.

What stops most of us from sharing the gospel? Fear.

How do we overcome that fear?

Many tools available to help overcome fear, break the ice and start a conversation about the gospel. For example, Living Waters Publications is a good source for fun gospel tracts.

If you prefer friendship evangelism, don't wait, invite your friend to your home and watch a video such as MOST or 180. These easily lead to a conversation about the gospel. Or use a tool such as the eCube, which makes telling the story about Jesus and the gospel easy and interesting.

To learn how to share the gospel read a book such as “Share Jesus Without Fear” by Bill Fay or “Conquer Your Fear, Share Your Faith” by Kirk Cameron and Ray Comfort.

But, no matter what tool or approach you use, the Biblical gospel must be presented. Remember, people believe they are the crowning achievement of evolution. Everyone thinks they are easily good enough to get into heaven, if there is a heaven. So in today's evolution soaked culture it is important to define what sin means – you've broken God's laws. When you break the law there is a penalty to be paid. Jesus died to pay the penalty you've earned for breaking God's laws. He was dead, buried and on the third day He was raised from the dead, showing us His promises are true and there is life after death.

Mark Mittelberg, in the book “The Unexpected Adventure” describes how to do this:

“1. Take a deep breath. Funny thing, but outreach always goes best when you have plenty of oxygen in your lungs.

2. Say a quick prayer. Ask God to lead and use you, But it must be quick – about the amount of time required to take the deep breath.

3. Open your mouth. This makes your words much easier to understand.

4. Let it fly. You've got air in your lungs, God on your side, and something to say; what more could you possibly ask for? Speak up and spark some spiritual action. Don't delay. Don't change the subject, and don't give the devil time to whisper in your ear that this is not an opportune moment.”
