This statement is ambiguous but potentially gravely heretical. It is
true that evolution is a popular excuse for bad theology, bad morals,
etc. However, there are cults that claim belief in the Bible that pose
equally grave soul danger. In both cases, it is the misinterpretation
that is the real problem.

However, it may be a form of the claim that we are saved, not by grace
alone through Christ. Instead, belief in some form of antievolutionism
is necessary to salvation, if not sufficient for it. Paul utterly
condemns any such assertion in Galatians.
