Christianity Today is asking how we can fit evolution with the Bible. I’m trying to figure out why…
Why Try Jury-Rigging the Bible to Fit a Failed Theory?
Evolution doesn’t fit the facts of nature, so why should it fit the account in Genesis? Why even try to make it fit?
We can’t solve that problem by adding God into the evolution equation. Most theistic evolutionists today are pretty stingy about what they’ll let God do there anyway (as if it were up to them). They want Him in the background, so nature can run without Him. That’s just the same evolution, though, with “God” sprinkled on top of it. It’s an insult to both God and evolution.
Others say God gets involved from time to time. In that case, Genesis is just fine as is. There’s no need to doubt that God that made Adam and Eve by special creation, just as it says in the Bible. (If you want more on this, here’s more — 1,000 pages more!)
Can We Harmonize Christianity Today With Evangelical Christianity?
So where does this leave us? Christianity Today is supposed to be the voice of evangelical Christianity. Here, though, it has totally capitulated to a naturalized view of human origins. It’s giving in to a view that many evangelicals reject for good scientific reasons.
I’d say that leaves us with one more “harmonization” problem to solve. Christianity Today has always been supposed to be the voice of evangelical Christianity. It’s supposed to be biblical. How does that fit with reality today? Answer: It doesn’t.Tom Gilson, “Why Would Christianity Today Try Twisting the Bible to Fit Evolution?” at The Stream (April 8, 2022)
Any thoughts on what gives with Christianity Today?
