The answer is simple. No!
There is a tremendous amount of “scientific” non-testable philosophy and assumptions that are part of the “theory” of Evolution. Sadly, the majority of the scientific world promotes their philosophy and assumptions (not to mention baseless guesses and speculation) as science when it isn’t science at all.
In my opinion Christians should not embrace Evolution.
Evolution is completely opposed to Biblical Judaism and Christianity because death did not enter into the world until after Adam and Eve sinned. The animals were created before that and did not evolve into what we know as an elephant, lion, or dog etc from a single ancestor. They were created separately by God.
For evolution to work you have to have death and corruption of genetics to get the mutations for biological creatures to “evolve” over long… long… long… long periods of time. Then you have the problem of huge, astronomical chances to get one beneficial mutation out of probably millions of mutations that would kill the animal.
Sadly the current Pope seems to have embraced some of the broken paradigm of Evolution. Article here. A decision to heap up into their pile of bad theology and doctrine and justifies us to continue our 500 year protest!
This is a short review of this blog article here with the title above.
“This version is known as a ‘pre-tribulational rapture’ where God removes all Christians from earth, takes them to heaven, all the while a 7-year period of great tribulation takes place on earth. This is, then, followed by a millennial (1000-year) reign of Christ. I don’t believe this version holds much water under the scrutiny of Scripture’s teaching…”
This is a poor article in my opinion. I think the writer confuses human interpretation of possible events that happen (books and movies) and the concept of the Pre-Tribulation Rapture. The Bible does teach a Pre-Tribulation Rapture much to the chagrin of its opponents. See my article here and other related articles here.

#4 – Tekiah Gadola – the last trumpet
“It will happen in a moment, in the blink of an eye, when the last trumpet is blown. For when the trumpet sounds, those who have died will be raised to live forever. And we who are living will also be transformed” (1 Corinthians 15:52 NLT).

“Yet the time will come when the Lord will gather them (the Jewish nation) together like handpicked grain. One by one he will gather them—from the Euphrates River in the east to the Brook of Egypt in the west. In that day the great trumpet will sound. Many who were dying in exile in Assyria and Egypt will return to Jerusalem to worship the Lord on his holy mountain” (Isaiah 27:12-13).
I believe when the trumpet is blown and Jesus takes His church, the remaining, unbelieving Jews scattered in the world will be returned to Israel by God. There will be a great revival among them (led by the two witnesses of Rev 11), and all of Israel will be saved during the Tribulation.
“Some of the people of Israel have hard hearts, but this will last only until the full number of Gentiles comes to Christ. And so all Israel will be saved” (Romans 11:25b-26a).
