How should we, as Christians, respond to the “big bang theory”? I feel like it’s wrong to go along with this, but i don’t know what to do.

There are a lot of Christian views on Evolution. From what I know, I can explain a few.
Creationism: You take the process of creation word for word from the Bible. You think it’s literal and true.
Evolutionarily Creationism: You think each day of creation in the bible was billions of years. God did create the world, but evolved over the years to what we are now like Darwin says.
Evolutionary: You think God had no part in the creation of the world. It just happened.
There’s a thing called separation of Church and State so while in school, I wouldn’t argue what your teacher says. He/She is teaching what they are supposed to. You can keep your beliefs seperate from your school work. Mainly because unless you go to a Christian private school, it’s the law to do so. You can’t argue what you’re taught. You can disagree or not believe it, but you can’t argue it. That’s just how it is.

@Vb4l, I suggest not necessarily arguing with your teacher, however if a question about evolution comes up in homework or on a test, answer it based on the book’s teachings, but make a note saying that you believe what the Bible says, not what your book says (or something along those lines). 🙂
P.S. You’re very beautiful. 🙂

I agree. I don’t think arguing with the teacher is the right approach at all. Thanks for the advice.
@mandi you are so pretty! I love your hair!

Sophomore year in high school I had a history teacher who was teaching on evolution and she said in class, “it’s okay if you don’t believe this, I certainly don’t believe this.” But we had to answer the questions based on a non – biblical point of view.

I always like to remind people that the theory of evolution is a hoax because Darwin proved his own theory wrong. There is also no reason that you should be made to believe these things. Don’t forget that as a student you have rights. You should not be made to believe these things. Science teachers are supposed to teach you theories, not tell you what happened. They especially cannot tell you that what you believe is wrong. Stand up if you feel the need. That’s what I do. Much love!

Honestly, I’m not interesting in debating which is “correct” but I’d just like to point out that “Christians” as a general term, do not neccesarily believe evolution. Literally, early Christians commonly believed Genesis to be a metaphor, not literal, because that’s how all history was told in many of those times. Also, Catholics, like myself, belong to a church that has accepted Evolution since the 60s. So “Christians” as a whole, can very much believe in evolution and do not need to “fight” it in schools. If you decide not to believe it, that’s on you.

Blackglimmer- yes that is totally what I feel like. Maybe I worded this wrong by saying fight, like I was going to stand up and yell “Evolution is wrong” in front of the class haha, but I felt like the teacher made evolution seem like the ‘only logical’ solution. Just the way he said things made it seem like evolution was absolutely true. On our test, he often left out ‘Theory’ altogether and asked us about ‘the Big Bang’. I felt this was wrong.

blackglimmer – could you explain how darwin proved his own theory wrong? not trying to argue with you or anything, it’s just I really want to know other peoples arguments since I’ve been questioning darwin myself 🙂

I for one believe God created all of the universe in 6 days and rested on the 7th. And I have had a lot of experience with this. My best advice is to pray about it. Be kind to the teacher who believes in Evolution. If the teacher is teaching their opinion instead of what the book says. Kindly call them out. Asking them why they think all this happened. Don’t spark up a heated argument. And always pray.
