Hillsong Unapologetically Mixes Evolution and Creation

I had just read this article yesterday.  And then, lo and behold, some girl sang that song ("So Will I") in front of church this morning.  I'm glad I read the article when I did because it gave me the opportunity to be discerning about what is being taught through that song.

Basically, the Hillsong worship leader who wrote it says that evolution is undeniable and that, when God spoke, evolution started and then continued along in the evolutionary process according to God's plans and word.

May I ask then ... How does he view Genesis 1:24-25: "And God said, 'Let the land produce living creatures according to their kinds ... And it was so.  God made the wild animals according to their kinds, the livestock according to their kinds, and all creatures that move along the ground to their kinds."?

This doesn't say that He made animals that eventually became different kinds, but that each was made according to their own kinds.  Separate species.  Not one melding into the next.  (Within a species, things change, such as breeding different types of dogs.  But all those various breeds are still dogs.)

And if evolution is true, that man came from apes, at what point did Adam and Eve come into being?  At what point did they sin and become accountable to God?  Apes are not held accountable for their sins.  But mankind is.  But when did this happen if apes slowly grew into people?

And if apes slowly grew into people, why does Genesis 2:7 say that God "formed the man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and man became a living being."

How could this verse be true if evolution is true?  

Did God grind up the most advanced ape just so He could then reform the dust into man?  Or is "God formed man from dust" really just a simpler way of saying "apes grew smarter and stood up taller until one of them became Adam"?  

Maybe when God said that He "breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and man became a living being" what He really meant was that He "breathed the breath of life into a primitive, microscopic water creature that eventually grew smarter and added genetic information to itself until one day it crawled out onto dry land as a small four-legged creature which became a big four-legged creature which became a big two-legged ape which became man"?

Possible?    

NO! 
Adam was formed from dust by God Himself and then he received the breath of life.  He was not a lower-functioning living being that slowly developed into a man.

You can believe the Bible's account of creation or you can believe evolution, but you can't have both. 
It doesn't make sense.  You can't blend evolution and Creation.  

It is an insult to God and the Bible to try to do so.



(And notice in the article the singer's non-answers when asked if he believes in the Big Bang and if man evolved from apes.  While Hillsong has inspired a lot of people, I have heard for years to be wary of them.  And I think there is something to that.  The deception in this song might be subtle, but it's the subtle things that get you.)
