Quote of the Day: Evolutionism

This ABC News clip about Bruce Waltke is proof of how “fair and balanced” our media are. We are told the debate is between “Creationism” and “Evolution.” Why not the more accurate and balanced “Evolutionism”?

Here is a good blog post on the ridiculousness of Christianity becoming a cult if we don’t believe in macro evolution:
Life on the Cultic Fringe

Genesis 1:12 HCSB
The earth brought forth vegetation: seed-bearing plants according to their kinds and trees bearing fruit with seed in it, according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good.

Genesis 1:21 HCSB So God created the large sea-creatures and every living creature that moves and swarms in the water, according to their kinds. [He also created] every winged bird according to its kind. And God saw that it was good.

Genesis 1:24 HCSB
Then God said, “Let the earth produce living creatures according to their kinds: livestock, creatures that crawl, and the wildlife of the earth according to their kinds.” And it was so.

    Oh, but Jeff…
    That is so Old Testament!

    Wait a minute…
    That’s the same Old Testament that Jesus said was true.


  2. 2 Scripture Zealot

    Sometimes what’s apparent is true. The perspicuity of Scripture. Sometimes it’s not. This is an example where people go different ways.

    But my wife, who isn’t into all the theological jargon and reading theology books for 1-2 hours a day, said what you said but regarding Adam and Eve, “But Jesus said they were individuals.” Sometimes more knowledge with a bit of disbelief can really change things. Not saying that’s always the case with differing hermeneutics.

    It is my opinion that the term hermeneutics is too often used for:

    I used to believe that. However, I’m more educated and sophisticated than you are and I don’t believe such overly simplistic interpretations any longer.

    Call me cynical.

  4. 4 Scripture Zealot

    I should just say interpretation instead. Hermeneutics is too big of a word unless being very specific and differentiating it from exegesis.
