The battle between Creation and evolution is not a faith vs. science issue.  Since macro-evolution is a historical science theory and is not actually true science, it is actually a faith vs. faith issue.  It is an issue of worldviews.  And at the heart of that issue is the nature of God.  The one who adheres to Biblical Creation is one who knows his accountability to the Creator and has repented and put his trust in the One who saves by grace alone through Christ alone.  The one who adheres to macro-evolution is the one who knows his accountability to the Creator and with a love of pride and sin suppresses the truth in unrighteousness.

Again, the issue is not with god but with the God, the God of the Bible.  Below is a great quote from Marvin L. Lubenow who explains the real issue for the evolutionist.

The real issue in the creation/evolution debate is not the existence of God.  The real issue is the nature of God.  To think of evolution as basically atheistic is to misunderstand the uniqueness of evolution.  Evolution was not designed as a general attack against atheism.  It was designed as a specific attack against the God of the Bible, and the God of the Bible is clearly revealed through the doctrine of creation.  Obviously, if a person is an atheist, it would be normal for him to also be an evolutionist.  But evolution is as comfortable with theism as it is with atheism.  An evolutionist is perfectly free to choose any god he wishes, as long as it is not the God of the Bible.  The gods allowed by evolution are private, subjective, and artificial.  They bother no one and make no absolute ethical demands.  However, the God of the Bible is the Creator, Sustainer, Savior, and Judge.  All are responsible to Him.  He has an agenda that conflicts with that of sinful humans.  For man to be created in the image of God is very awesome.  For God to be created in the image of man is very comfortable.
