God and Evolution

“God uses evolution to unfold the living world around us. In a similar way, God uses gravity to unfold the universe on a large scale. Neither gravity nor evolution present challenges for Christian Faith. God is the ultimate cause of all that exists. God is that without which there would be no evolution at all. God is both Creator and Sustainer of the universe. In my opinion, God does not only set the initial conditions for the evolutionary process, but instead lifts an entire trajectory into existence. The entire trajectory is known to God, who exists outside of time, eternal and a-temporal, all-knowing and all-loving. ”
