If Genesis Is False?

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.”

    On August 21 as I was reading Oswald Chambers’ “My Utmost For His Highest” he touched on this very issue, though he related the yielding to Christ as with an attitude of being commonplace, where I preceive he is talking about being commonplace at the feet of the King. Oswald Chambers states, “The statement we so often hear, ‘Make a decision for Jesus Christ,’ places the emphasis on something our Lord never trusted. He never asks us to decide for Him, but to yield to Him— something very different. At the foundation of Jesus Christ’s kingdom is the genuine loveliness of those who are commonplace. I am truly blessed in my poverty. If I have no strength of will and a nature without worth or excellence, then Jesus says to me, ‘Blessed are you, because it is through your poverty that you can enter My kingdom.’ I cannot enter His kingdom by virtue of my goodness— I can only enter it as an absolute pauper.”

      I meant to reply to the King Jesus Gospel article, though this one is very disturbing. I notice this thinking comes from “Ruin Reconstructionists” or “Gap Theory.” They adhere to evolutionary lies to compensate for the false science of evolution and the geological time scales, and do so in the late 1700s to early 1800s in order to bring the bible into line with this “new science.” We know better now, yet I know some brethern who will never give up on Dake’s notes about this Gap in Genesis. It is like arguing with Darwinists as Gappers use the same identical arguments as Darwinists to make their points and utterly distort the Gospel, declaring death entered into the world long before Adam was created. It is heart breaking and waters down the Truth.
