I know my division does not read it literally, I also know the Catholic highschool I have been studying at, that division does not. The teachers have been telling us that they believe in the Big Bang theory, and the evolution, just that God had a hand in allowing things to happen. What specific divisions of Christianity believes this?
Im catholic and i do believe that there was an adam and an eve. i also believe in evolution. u see it everyday. The evolution of ideas, of babies into children into adults. The evolution of seeds into giant trees. Like if i showed you an acorn and i told you it would become a giant oak tree it would be hard to believe but it happens. Also i believe God works in processes. Now if he wanted to make a tree he could go zap instant tree! but he doesnt he started the tree as a tiny seed. oh and God made us intelligent because he does love us. He does let us understand about the world around us. But as for the big question, like meaning of life, he made us intelligent enough to know that there is an answer, but not intelligent enough to know what that answer is without Him. When Salvation comes and we receive eternal life with the Father and the Son, then we will know that answer we were constantly looking for. And as for the Big Bang Theory: God said "let there be light" and BANG!!!
actually not true. During my ime studying religion, I had to study and read many offcial encyclicals and douments stating that
yes, though there may be your sects, you really can't say it's true for the whole sect, it all falls back on the individual
really, it's not the division. It all depends on the individual person.
