Hi Nikki,

Many religions do not find evolution incompatible with faith. Please don't let that be a stumbling block to whatever you choose to do.

And your experience of receiving bad advice from your pastor had nothing really to do with God or religion. It had to do with a man, a man who perhaps meant well but gave bad advice. The leaders of any churches make mistakes as they are no more or less human than the rest of us. And organized religions themselves have done things that God would not want associated with his name, because religions are run by man rather than directly by God. I have heard theories that the commandment of not taking the Lord's name in vain refer not so much to cursing as to doing wrong in the name of God.
