Good point. A lot of people do not understand that evolution is also a test to see if we will believe what is written, or how man interprets what he sees.
Exactly. I think that would apply whether or not God "sends" or "allows".Ã‚Â
I think that Jesus made it clear that He does test us in this way:
Ã¢â‚¬Å“To you it is granted to understand the sacred secrets of the kingdom of the heavens, but to those people it is not granted. This is why I speak to them by the use of illustrations, because, looking, they look in vain, and hearing, they hear in vain, neither do they get the sense of it; and toward them the prophecy of Isaiah is having fulfillment, which says, Ã¢â‚¬ËœBy hearing, you will hear but by no means get the sense of it; and, looking, you will look but by no means see. For the heart of this people has grown unreceptive.Ã¢â‚¬â„¢Ã¢â‚¬ÂÃ¢â‚¬â€Matthew 13:2, 10, 11, 13-15; Isaiah 6:9,Ã‚Â 10.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“A wicked and adulterous generation keeps on seeking for a sign, but no sign will be given it except the sign of Jonah.Ã¢â‚¬ÂÃ¢â‚¬â€Matthew 16:1-4.
"But Abraham said, Ã¢â‚¬ËœThey have Moses and the Prophets; let them listen to these.Ã¢â‚¬â„¢ 30 Then he said, Ã¢â‚¬ËœNo, indeed, father Abraham, but if someone from the dead goes to them they will repent.Ã¢â‚¬â„¢ 31 But he said to him, Ã¢â‚¬ËœIf they do not listen to Moses and the Prophets, neither will they be persuaded if someone rises from the dead.Ã¢â‚¬â„¢Ã¢â‚¬Â-- Luke 15:29
Quoting is my strong point. I am not so good at coming up with my own discourses.
