Christians who take the Bible seriously have been alarmed at the increase in "seeker driven" churches, false religions, compromise, and outright apostasy in the church. A good part of this is because too many Christians are unaware that Genesis is the foundation for all major Christian doctrines, and have disdain for the authority of the Word of God.
Christianity held to a recent creation and global Flood throughout most of church history, including the Reformers. It wasn't until naturalistic philosophies of science seemed plausible, and Christians were buffaloed into compromising. Who wants to be considered stupid in the light of "science"? The compromisers were foolish, as evolution is based on many frauds and bad reasoning, and we need to show it for what it is (Eph. 5:11-13).
Compromises included various ways to force millions or billions of Darwin years into the Bible, and the worst of the lot is theistic evolution. (For my detailed article on this, see the 2-part "Waterless Clouds, Wandering Stars"). Like disingenuous atheists change the established definition of their view from "belief there is no God or gods" into "lack of belief", theistic evolutionist owlhoots like BioLogos deceptively call their view "evolutionary creationism". Not hardly! Old Earth "creationists" and TEs are willing to join in with atheists in lying to promote evolution and malign biblical creationists.

No, we cannot compromise, and we must continue to uphold the authority and truth of Scripture. Here is a link to an episode of "Fighting for the Faith". Pastor Chris Rosebrough is doing reviews in the annual worst Easter sermon of 2016 contest, and Ryan Miller bows to the puny god of evolutionism. (I half expected him to have a séance and call up a demon pretending to be the spirit of Darwin to preach with him). You can get the free download for this episode here, and skip to the 43 minute 5 second mark. I'd be much obliged to you.
If you want some other apostasy after this (nothing more about evolution though), I suggest that you skip back to the 6 minute 40 second mark for someone who sounds spiritual and intellectual, but is harmful. If you're liking this kind of thing, go to the 1 hour 20 minute mark for the longest segment: Kerry Shook is preaching Gnostic and Pelagian heresies, so be glad you've got Pastor Rosebrough along for a guide. If you have time and are curious, hey, play the whole episode.
