THE BIBLE EVOLVED FROM OLD TESTAMENT TO NEW.
RELIGION EVOLVED FROM POLYTHEISM TO MONOTHEISM.
THEOLOGY EVOLVED FROM TRIBAL GOD TO UNIVERSAL FATHER.
SALVATION EVOLVED FROM LEGALISM TO GRACE.
PROGRESSIVE REVELATION IS THE RELIGIOUS EVOLUTION SEEN IN THE BIBLE.
THE CHURCH CONTINUES TO EVOLVE UNDER THE DIRECTION OF THE HOLY SPIRIT.
A NEW CHRISTIAN EVOLVES INTO A MATURE CHRISTIAN.
SOCIETY HAS EVOLVED FROM SAVAGERY TO CIVILIZATION.
LAW HAS EVOLVED FROM AUTOCRACY TO DEMOCRACY.
GOVERNMENT HAS EVOLVED FROM FAMILY, TO TRIBE, TO CLAN, TO KINGDOM, TO NATION, TO THE UNITED NATIONS.
CHRIST CAME “IN THE FULNESS OF TIME” - AT A STAGE IN THE EVOLUTION OF THE EARTH. HE WILL COME AGAIN WHEN THE EVOLUTIONARY PLAN IS COMPLETE.
Comment: God could have made these things happen all at once, but the evidence shows that He did not. Therefore, evolution is evidently God’s cosmic method. It shows a God of order, direction, and purpose. Furthermore, man can participate in God’s plan for growth, a beautiful program for making the world in His image.
