At times like this, I think of Kermit the Frog’s song: “It’s not that easy being green…When I think it could be nicer being red or yellow or gold / Or something much more colorful like that.” – Darrel Falk, Senior Fellow, BioLogos Foundation. On Living in the Middle
Walk on road, hm? Walk left side, safe. Walk right side, safe. Walk middle, sooner or later get squish just like grape – Mr. Miyagi, The Karate Kid, 1984.
No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. – Jesus Christ, Our God and Savior, Sovereign Creator, Matthew 6:24
As the BioLogos enterprise chugs along attempting to dispel the myths of biblical creationism, the infallibility of God’s Word, and Scripture’s sufficiency as a historical document, it was only a matter of time until their true colors were to shine through. I began picking out these atheistic chameleons painted like Christians early on when I would read through the disjointed comments under the blog posts.
But how can one NOT question the sincerity of BioLogos’s commitment to the inspiration of Scripture and Christian orthodoxy when Darrel Falk writes,
There are Christians whose very sense of purpose and meaning in life depend upon the historicity of Adam and Eve.
Huh? The man has read the Bible, right? There is a rather foundational reason why as a Christian my very sense of purpose and meaning in life depends upon the historicity of Adam: Because my sin is dependent upon an historical man, Adam, and my salvation is dependent upon an historical Second Adam, Jesus Christ.
There is a lot I could say, but I wish to save my passion for later articles on my series addressing theistic evolution. However, two articles today by others who are way more articulate than I am are worth highlighting,
