What's Wrong with Theistic Evolution?

Many years ago, I wondered why I can't simply assume that God used evolution in his creation process. But back then, I had no idea what I was doing to God's Word.
Find Jesus in Evolution
In this Weblog, I have puzzled, pleaded, ranted, explained, reasoned and so forth in an effort to understand why people want to add to the plain reading of the Scriptures. Is it to appear smarter, to appease the evolution crowd by not really believing (and standing up for) what the Bible says? Is it ignorance of the domino effect of compromising from our foundations? I should not be so puzzled. After all, this is an age where people compromise the Word all over the place, listening instead to the Rev. Dr. Feelgood and his associate, E.R. Tickler. Believing in a literal six-day creation and global flood? Long forgotten!

The fact is, theistic evolution does significant violence to the gospel.

The atheistic formula for evolution is:
Evolution = matter + evolutionary factors (chance and necessity + mutation + selection + isolation + death) + very long time periods.
In the theistic evolutionary view, God is added:
Theistic evolution = matter + evolutionary factors (chance and necessity + mutation + selection + isolation + death) + very long time periods + God.
In this system God is not the omnipotent Lord of all things, whose Word has to be taken seriously by all men, but He is integrated into the evolutionary philosophy. This leads to 10 dangers for Christians.
