Christians who believe in millions of years and evolution, obtained those ideas outside of scripture

Should church leaders who compromise Genesis be surprised if the younger generation of church attendees decide to reinterpret marriage and or gender to mean whatever they want it to mean?

I would say no, they shouldn’t be surprised if that happened because compromising Genesis with evolution/millions of years, opens the door for marriage and gender to be reinterpreted. How could that be so?

Genesis 1-11 is the foundation of all doctrine, in fact, the foundation for everything.

Genesis 1-11 is the foundation for gender and marriage.

Genesis 1:27 records a summary of God making the first two people:

“So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them” (Genesis 1:27).

It’s clear, God created only two genders of humans, male and female.

In Genesis chapter 2 we are given the details of how God made the first male and female humans. After God made man from dust, and the first woman from his side, we read:

“Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh” (Genesis 2:24).

The creation of this union we call marriage. One man and one woman—a male and a female. This is the origin of marriage.

Jesus reiterated this in Matthew 19 and Mark 10 when He was asked about marriage:

“But from the beginning of creation, ‘God made them male and female.’‘ Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.’ So they are no longer two but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let not man separate” (Mark 10:6–9).

Now when Christians compromise God’s Word in Genesis by taking man’s ideas of evolutionary biology and geology (millions of years) and use that to reinterpret the creation account, they are unlocking a door—a door to undermine the authority of Scripture and reinterpret its clear meaning.

Now this is a major reason why we boldly challenge those Christians/Christian leaders who add millions of years to the bible. What they are doing is taking man’s belief about the past, and using that to reinterpret the clear words in Genesis, such as reinterpreting the days of creation, reinterpreting the account of man made directly from dust and woman from his side, and reinterpreting the Flood etc.

Now, contemplate this carefully. Those Christians who believe in millions of years and other evolutionary ideas, didn’t get those ideas from reading Scripture. They didn’t get those ideas from Genesis. They obtained those ideas outside of Scripture from fallible humans, and then have taken those ideas to Scripture to force them upon the Words of Scripture.

Many pastors have endorsed their young people going to public school, and endorsing what these young people were taught at school about evolution and millions of years. So how do such people reconcile what is being taught at school about origins with the Scriptures? Well, sadly, these compromising church leaders tell the young people that Genesis is not meant to be literal history, or it’s allegory, and that man calls “science” (evolutionary beliefs) can be used to reinterpret and give different meaning to the words in Genesis.

The point is that these young people are being taught one can take what the world is teaching and use this to reinterpret and thus determine the meaning of Scripture. This is the dangerous door these leaders have unlocked that puts man’s word in authority over God’s Word, thus undermining the authority of Scripture.

Over time as the culture changes and emphatically now pushes the LGBTQ worldview along with gender identity and so on, many of these young people don’t see any problem with taking man’s views of gender and marriage etc., and reinterpreting God’s Word in Genesis in regard to these subjects. After all, if the Christian leader they respect said to reinterpret Genesis based on man’s evolutionary ideas, why not reinterpret Genesis based on man’s ideas about “marriage.”

Thus, two in marriage can be reinterpreted to mean two men or two women. Male and Female gender can be reinterpreted to mean one can define gender in various and ways and change one’s gender if they want to.

I submit, that when one considers the generational loss from the church and how secularized the younger generations have become, that a large part of the blame lies with the compromising church that did not teach generations to stand boldly on the absolute authority of the Word of God and not compromise God’s Word with man’s word.

And because those who have attended public school have been indoctrinated with the foundation of man’s word for their worldview, they are easy prey for the world to capture their hearts and mind. The Christian worldview can’t stand on the wrong foundation of man’s word, but the secular worldview is a logical outworking of that foundation.

We need to be raising up generations with the foundation of God’s Word which Scripture likens to building a house on the rock. The house built on the sand of man’s word collapses:

““Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock. And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on the rock .And everyone who hears these words of mine and does not do them will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand. And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell, and great was the fall of it”” (Matthew 7:24–27).
