The Creation According To BioLogos


This isn't even reinterpreting scripture. This is rewriting scripture. I hope this was not the intention of BioLogos, but the article seems to (instead of "harmonize" scripture and "science") synthesize "science" and scripture into a nearly unrecognizable chimera as well as giving the impression that scripture should be derived from science. I don't know if this was their intention at all (and I really hope it wasn't), but please feel free to read the article (link above) and decide for yourself.

Just a few quick questions. Why does he immediately set up the false dichotomy between science and faith? When science is done responsibly using the scientific method, it doesn't contradict a person's faith. Was there any death in the third, fourth, and fifth parts of the story? If so, where did this death come from? What caused it? Approximately how many "evenings and mornings" did we watch between the third, fourth, and fifth parts of the story? Billions and billions and billions? It's interesting that the Hebrew of Genesis Chapter 1 uses the SINGULAR "evening and morning"...why the change? Are we writing a cute story in an effort to replace the historical creation narrative that God provides in His inspired Word? Or, worse yet, are we attempting to put words in God's mouth that aren't really there?

Yep, totally agree it is strange and fairly confusing. If I understand correctly, it seems that Biologos supports the compromise of the Word of God by supporting theistic evolution which appears to be about interpreting parts of scripture out of context etc... Genesis describes the creation very clearly and it is good enough for me to read it literally as six normal days as we know a day from morning to evening. After all, Jesus made it very clear that He believed the writings of Moses as literal so I do not understand why anyone would wish to challenge the One who actually did the Creating and Who was an eyewitness.

  • Hello everyone! Since our other discussion thread was getting rather cumbersome (I estimate we would have to click through at least 15 "load more replies" buttons before finding the end) I wanted to start a new post. This topic is partly inspired by our previous discussion on slavery, and I think it is fundamental to any of our beliefs: what makes us, as humans, special and valuable? This could include discussions on any of the following, or other questions as they come up: - It has been said that we are "star stuff", and the Bible says we are made in God's image. What do you believe we are made of? - Why are we different than animals? - What is "consciousness"? - Where does our value as humans come from? - How do our beliefs about these questions impact our lives? I look forward to hearing your views! There is something I think God has put on my heart to say. He loves you before you love Him. Wow, that's amazing.
  • Greetings, all! Recently, a new update was released for our forum here which allows me to create "badges" and award them to specific commentators. You may have already noticed some of them on your user profile! Anyway, feel free to suggest ideas for new badges (or changes to current ones) on this thread! Thanks!
