Not surprising as most persons on Planet Earth dispute Christianity - Mat 7:14 Because strait [is] the gate, and narrow [is] the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. Just because someone is convinced enough to become a Christian doesn't mean they have mastered christian doctrine. Any sound hermeneutical study of scripture leads to a literal reading of Genesis. It's a good thing we don't decide Bible doctrine based on the majority vote - as the majority of the world doesn't even believe in Jesus. I have yet to see any Biblical debate regarding origins even come close to favoring anyting but a literal reading of Genesis. In fact, it is the evolutionist argument that the Bible is entirely silent regarding our origins and evolution - that is a de facto concession it seems. It's really awkward when someone who is holding an ax says "what ax... I don't see an ax". Clearly Genesis says that the earth was made in six days. Clearly, anyone can ad up the dates in the historical geneologies and get ~ 6000 years. Unless one dismisses these things as something other than literal history, there is no other possible explaination. Add to this the fact that Jesus himself - as well as many prophets, apostles, etc all treat Genesis history as literal, and you have a complete picture which leaves ABSOLUTELY no room for any other interpretation. You are - as 2Peter 3 says - willingly ignorant of the truth. 2Pe 3:2 That ye may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of us the apostles of the Lord and Saviour: 3 Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, 4 And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as [they were] from the beginning of the creation. 5 For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water: 6 Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished: 7 But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men. Those who do not take Noah's flood (or the other literal history of Genesis) literally are called "scoffers, walking after their own lusts". The Bible has used this description before: Rom 1:18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; 19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed [it] unto them. 20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, [even] his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: 21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified [him] not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. 22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, 23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things. 24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: 25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. I have just given you ample scripture that supports the idea that not taking Genesis creation literally leads to a loss of morality. But lets delve into an example - let's take homosexual marriage - this is currently a hot button issue. Where is marriage ordained and instituted? Genesis 1 and 2. Gen 1:26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. 27 So God created man in his [own] image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. 28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth. Gen 2:23 And Adam said, This [is] now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man. 24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh. Then Jesus quotes this passage as though it were a real, literal passage: Mar 10:4 And they said, Moses suffered to write a bill of divorcement, and to put [her] away. 5 And Jesus answered and said unto them, For the hardness of your heart he wrote you this precept. 6 But from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female. 7 For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and cleave to his wife; 8 And they twain shall be one flesh: so then they are no more twain, but one flesh. 9 What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder. Why is marriage for 1 man and 1 woman for life? Jesus said the reason for that morality was the literalness of the creation of Adam and Eve - in that God created one man and one woman - not a man and a man or a woman and a woman. The institution of marriage was created and ordained in the beginning of creation with Adam and Eve. If, however, there was no Adam and Eve - and God didn't create one man and one woman - if evolution is true - then there is no moral basis for homosexual marriage to be wrong. In fact, the passage in Romans chapter 1 I gave you - which describes how a person who believes evolution (gives the creation credit for the Creator's work) - directly correlates a belief in natural history with severe immorality - including homosexuality: Rom 1:24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: 25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. 26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: 27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. 28 And even as they did not like to retain God in [their] knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; 29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, 30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, 31 Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: 32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them. 2Ti 3:2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, 4 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; 5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. 2Ti 3:7 Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. (Gup: sounds like an evolutionist/humanist to me) 8 Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith. (Gup: yet another reference to the literal history of Moses) 2Ti 3:12 Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution. 13 But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived. 14 But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned [them]; 15 And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. 16 All scripture [is] given by inspiration of God, and [is] profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: Then you are willingly ignorant of the truth, as the Bible describes.
