The Bible is clear that sin requires repentance and restitution.
BY HUGH FULFORD — In His Sermon on the Mount, Christ declared: “Furthermore, it has been said, ‘Whoever divorces his wife, let him give her a certificate of divorce.’ But I say to you that whoever divorces his wife, except for sexual immorality (fornication, KJV; ASV), causes her to commit adultery; and whoever marries a woman who is divorced commits adultery” (Matthew 5:31-32).

Acceptance of evolution as the explanation for the existence of all things was a choice based upon their desires.

Doug K. draws three lessons from the time of Manoah.
Then Manoah prayed to the LORD and said, “O Lord, please let the man of God whom you sent come again to us and teach us what we are to do with the child who will be born” Judges 13:8.
