The problem of evil is a real problem for evolutionists since the death and destruction of individuals is seen as a good thing leading to the progression of species. Theistic evolution is intellectually unsustainable. Consistent with the rest of your comment, this objection contains nothing more than mere assertionism—the practice of simply asserting a view over and over again without any supporting arguments. In fact, in Exodus —6 and even in the New Testament, in Acts —31, the Bible warns against making God in the image of man according to your own imagination; commanding all people everywhere to repent because there will be a coming judgment for those who continue to make God in their own image.
Proverbs —6 warns, Every word of God proves true; … Do not add to his words, lest he rebuke you and you be found a liar. Once again, you resort to assertionism without any basis for doing so. Having already rejected the basis for objective morality in the Scriptures, what basis do you have to objectively protest that God cannot make Adam before Eve?
In Defense of Scientism
In fact, the more you attempt to appeal to objective morality against God, the more you undermine your position since there is no basis for objective morality apart from the Bible. God caused Adam to fall into a deep sleep and then, from his side, God made Eve, so that Eve was taken out of Man—and for precisely this reason, man and his wife are to be joined together in marriage so that they might become one flesh Genesis — Jesus Himself believed and taught this Mark —9.
So having rejected even what Jesus Himself taught, on what basis can you claim to be a Christian, much less demand that God could have used evolution? This is again nothing more than just further assertionism on your part.

On the contrary, evolution over 4. Christ came to undo the curse so that through Him, those who believe might be restored back to eternal life through Jesus Christ. It destroys the hope that all Christians share in the restoration of all things, where just as it was at the beginning, there would once again be a day where God would dwell with man, and where there will no longer be death, nor mourning, nor crying, nor pain Revelation If death was part of the perfectly good process that God used before sin entered the world, then death is not an enemy which needs to be destroyed 1 Corinthians , there would be no need for a resurrection of the dead, nor a resurrection of Christ.
And if in Adam, we did not all die, so in Christ, we will not be made alive cf. We have supplied this link to an article on an external website in good faith. But we cannot assume responsibility for, nor be taken as endorsing in any way, any other content or links on any such site.

I will endeavor to remember this explanation; it is a topic which I tend simply to accept as fact and just move on, so I am not much for argument, but I am learning thanks to you and CMI. Merry Christmas! Graeme M. AU December 26th, In defence of the Bible's so called ' God dreamt up' collection of musings by alleged primitive and superstitious people, if one takes time to actually read the Bible you would find the stories in it far too well recorded and authored be a fabrication, even though many other writers were involved, some, generations later it only had one author!
We are not that clever and you would only have to look at 'man generated religious deities' to see they offer little or zip! As for primitive people, for one, they had the technology to construct the pyramids with absolute precision a technology we today, would be 'hard pressed' to equal. Richard L. AE December 25th, Thank you, Joel, for giving a detailed critique.
Does it please God, or does it grieve him? Keeping that thought in mind, let us note several things: 1. The most serious problem with the theistic evolutionary approach or position is that it is not only an issue of truth, and of properly vs. It is much worse. Theistic evolution is also disobedience--an even bigger problem. God addresses how we should respond to truth-claims. See also 2 Cor.
