Darwin’s Dilemma

And he that doubteth is damned if he eat, because he eateth not of faith: for whatsoever is not of faith is sin.

(Romans 14:23) KJV

This commandment is given in the context of dietary restriction, or the lack of them, and how this can play out in the life of a believer. It has much broader application.

The general gist of this command is that if you think that something is wrong, regardless of whether or not you know what the Bible says about it, but you do it anyway then for you it’s sin.

This is how it was possible for Charles Darwin to be in sin when he wrote and published The Origin of Species, but yet the work is an essential component of the strong delusion which is part of God’s will. Darwin’s own conscience condemned him, even though what he did was necessary.

This should put to rest any dissension around the issue of, is there really such a thing as free will? Some people believe that no, there isn’t, precisely because we’re acting out the part which has been ordained for us in the grand plan of God. We may indeed be acting out parts, but our conscience intrinsically knows what’s right and wrong and we all have control over our choices and actions.
