Absolutely NOT! Scripture is crystal clear about this. Evolutionism and Creationism are directly opposed to each other, and the consequences of the two worldviews diverge dramatically.
In a day of rampant confusion on this issue, it is vital for believers to know what Scripture teaches. We must stand firm, as pillars in support of the truth, able to articulate a logical and compelling explanation of origins according to the Word of God.
Genesis specifies that God created life and provided for its orderly continuation through reproduction according to kind. No kind ever develops into a different kind. Ten times the historical record in Genesis 1 says “after their kind.”
This pattern has been man’s consistent observation, without a single exception, throughout the 6,000 years of earth history. Great variation may appear within a kind, yet each kind reproduces only after its own kind. The Dog kind has great variety: wolves, Great Danes, bulldogs, foxes, Chihuahuas, huskies, dingoes. But dogs always produce dogs; dogs never produce cats or camels or crocodiles or canaries or any other kind of non-dog life.
Jesus Himself recognized reproduction only within kind when He said, “Grapes are not gathered from thorn bushes, nor figs from thistles, are they?” (Matthew 7:16) The logical argument Jesus was making (on identifying false teachers by their fruit) disintegrates unless reproduction of life is only according to kind; otherwise grapes might come from thorn bushes!
Jesus obviously did NOT believe in the evolution of one kind of life into another.
Soli Deo Gloria.
