We who preach the gospel must not think of ourselves as public relations agents sent to establish good will between Christ and the world. We must not imagine ourselves commissioned to make Christ acceptable to big business, the press, the world of sports or modern education. We are not diplomats but prophets, and our message is not a compromise but an ultimatum. A.W. Tozer
Therefore let God-inspired Scripture decide between us; and on whichever side be found doctrines in harmony with the word of God, in favor of that side will be cast the vote of truth. --Basil of Caesarea
Once you learn to discern, there's no going back. You will begin to spot the lie everywhere it appears.

I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who has strengthened me, because He considered me faithful, putting me into service. 1 Timothy 1:12

The Heresy of Biologos

If anyone really needs more proof as to the unbiblical and heretical nature of the Biologos organization, just read their statement about human origins.

They claim Genesis is erroneous and evolution is true.  Their fallacious reasoning has been responded to so many times that it is hard to fathom why they use the same trite examples of why Genesis has to wrong. (Pay attention to the names they mention as references — these are more heretics!)  

Don Veinot, in the 9/15/16 Midwest Christian Outreach e-mail news, provides a good response:
If this is true, Genesis is little more than faith fables and Jesus, who the New Testament describes as being God by whom all things were created was simply a scientific illiterate since He believed and affirmed the historicity of Adam and Eve.

One other thought. About 15-20 years I was asked to debate a professor at a local college on creation vs. evolution. I proposed that if we granted as a starting point that the universe just popped into existence and some primordial soup just happened to appear on one rock in space we now call earth and in that very hostile environment and 21 amino acids popped into existence, somehow joined themselves together, continued by some miracle to continue existing as the spark of life. If all of that was in place as a starting point, how did we get from a-sexual reproduction to male-female sexual reproduction? What were the incremental steps in between? In fact, male-female reproduction is so complex that all parts must be in place and working in order for reproduction to occur. You would need a fully functioning male to pop into existence ready to reproduce. A fully functioning female to pop into place ready to reproduce. This would have to happen at about the same time in history and it would have to happen in about the same geographical location. How would Darwinism account for what would seem to be a miraculous creation event? After few minutes of silence the professor said that he did not know but that someday those answers would be discovered. My response? "And you know this by faith?" That seemed to end the debate. I am not sure the authors of the new book are on any better ground.
