The evolutionist says that we are just on our way upward and time will kill the beast within us. Just give us time and we will evolve into an exemplary species.
Education says that all we need to do is educate people. If everyone were just smarter, then we would be able to deal with the sin problem. What about Hitler’s Germany? The Nazis were highly educated.

Thank God for His Word of absolute Truth! The only book that has the answer to the sin problem is God’s Word.
