The simple answer to this momentous question is NO!   Webster’s defines evolution as “a process of change” or unfoldment.  He concludes:  “…a process in which the whole universe is a progression of interrelated phenomena.”   But does God’s creation, which He terms “good,” have to become Godlike?  Does it have to go through decades of development or progress?  Not in reality.  

Instead of thinking in terms of a long process of development or maturing,  let’s instead think of the eternal perfection of  God’s work.  As we read in Genesis 1:31:  “And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good.”  Paul puts it this way in his message to the  Romans:  “For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things to whom be glory for ever.  For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly see, being understood by the things that are made, ever his eternal power and Godhead.” (Rom.11:36 and 1:20)  

Jeremiah concurs when he writes:  ”Ah Lord God! Behold, thou hast made the heaven and the earth by thy great power and stretched out aim, and there is nothing too hard for thee:” (32:17)   In his first message to the Corinthians, Paul writes:  “Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.”  He adds that these things can only be “spiritually discerned.” (I Cor.2:11-12, 14)

Mary Baker Eddy makes the point that “The infinite has no beginning.”  And that the “unity of God and man” (of creator and creation) is eternal.  (S&H 502:24)  She adds:  “Deity was satisfied with His work.  How could He be otherwise, since the spiritual creation was the outgrowth, the emanation, of His infinite self-containment and immortal wisdom? (S&H 502:24 and 519:33-6) 

She raises the question:  “What is substance?”  And answers:  “Substance is that which is eternal and incapable of discord and decay.  Truth, Life, and Love are substance…:  (S&H 468:16-18)  And adds:  “Only by losing the false sense of Soul (or consciousness) can we gain the eternal unfolding of Life as immortality brought to light.” (S&H 335:22-24) 

She insists that what we call matter is not substance and that “Matter is neither created by Mind nor for the manifestation and support of Mind.” (S&H 279:9-10)   This point is well brought out in the account in I Samuel 16 of God sending Samuel to select a king after Saul’s passing.  None of the older sons of Jesse were chosen, but the youngest (David) who was keeping the sheep and had to be brought in, was anointed.  The point is simply stated in John 6:63:  “It is the spirit that quickeneth, the flesh profiteth nothing.” 

The account in Luke, Chapter 12, of a rich man who labored to fill his barns with many goods, but then died, makes the point that “he that layeth up treasure for himself , and is not rich toward  God” cannot profit.  Mary Baker Eddy comments: “We cannot build safely on false foundations.”  She concludes:  “…the superabundance of being is on the side of God, good.” (S&H 201:7-12)   (S&H 201:7)   The lesson includes Jesus’ healing of a nobleman’s son who was “at the point of death.” (John 4:46-47 and 50)  It emphasizes that Truth and Love must be lived in order to be demonstrated.    Yes, we must all “look deep into realism instead of accepting only the outward sense of things.” (S&H 129:22-24) 

Then, like John, we can see the “new heaven and new earth” wherein is “no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying…nor any more pain,” for all things are new.  (Rev.21;1-5)   Yes, “The true theory of the universe, including man, is not in material history but in spiritual development.”  And Yes, we must “look beyond fading finite forms” in order to “gain the true sense of things.”  Then we will find “all in God, good, and will need “no other consciousness.”  (S&H 264: 7-19)  

How comforting to know that “Each successive stage of experience unfolds new views of divine goodness and love,”  until, ultimately, we can be conscious “only of the things of God.”  (S&H 66:14 and 226:9)
