The unrelenting assault on the meta-narrative of scriptural teaching concerning literal creation with a historical Adam and Eve is becoming more pronounced.
This is not a gray area and shouldn’t be viewed as a second or third tier issue. The integrity of the Gospel is at stake.
It seems Evangelicals are prepared to discard God’s self-revelation in the book of Genesis for a man centered view of beginnings rooted in a theory of evolution.
“John Schneider, former teacher of theology at Calvin College in Michigan until recently,said it’s time to face facts: There was no Adam and Eve, no serpent, no apple, no fall that toppled man from a state of innocence.”
Hear is an excerpt to entice everyone to read more of Dr. Mohler‘s recent post explaining what is at stake.
” Each generation of Christians faces its own set of theological challenges. For this generation of Evangelicals, the question of beginnings is taking on a new urgency. In fact, this question is now a matter of Gospel urgency. How are we to understand the Bible’s story, if we can have no confidence that we know how it even begins?
In terms of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, the most urgent question related to beginnings has to do with the questions related to the existence of Adam and Eve as them first parents to all humanity and to the reality of the Fall as the explanation for human sinfulness and all that comes with sin.”
