Process of evolution by Pastor Melissa Scott

But I do believe, this is going to confuse everybody. I do believe there is a process of evolution that occurs in Christianity. That is ‘I was lost, and now I’m found’ and the minute ‘I’m found’ it doesn’t mean that I start becoming Christ-like. Pastor Melissa Scott tells us that the process by which I’m conformed, Romans 8 says the process by which I’m conformed that canopy makes me a product of Jesus Christ’s evolution in me. What I will become when I’m completed. So if you want to ask me if I believe in the theory that Darwin or whomever supported and purported and put out there: No, absolutely not! But let me get to what I came to talk about. That’s not it. No one knows what I’m going to talk about today. Isn’t that wonderful?

Actually I did prepare a message. And it’s very hard for me to start this message because it seems like everywhere when you turn on your TV anybody who is talking about Christianity; they’re not talking about Christ. They’re only talking about $$.$$. Everywhere. I’ve made up my mind that I have to do this. And I have to do this because you’ve been taught about giving God’s way. But there’s a whole world out there that thinks that giving to God is reaching into your pocket grabbing down for some change and some lint and putting it in the pot as it passes by. Jesus, when He spoke, He many times, by means of the paradox. Okay you in order to go up you must go down, in order to be first you must be last, in order to get I must give. That becomes the Aristotelian formula for this society we live in. If this, then that. If I give, I will get. And if you are giving in that mode, if you are giving in the formula ‘if this, then that’ you are not giving God’s way. You aren’t even giving at all because you are calculating what your investment is and what your return will be. And when you are doing it God’s way it is unconditional, there’s no strings attached.
