Example text

The creationists represent this position. 10 Despite theological diversity among creationists, there is across-the-board agreement on these basic issues: • The Bible is authoritative. • Genesis is primarily historical narrative from beginning to end. • Creation occurred in six 24-hour days. • Man was created in God’s image and then fell into sin, bringing God’s curse and judgment of death on creation. • Noah’s Flood was global in extent and effect. • All the people on Earth today are descendents of Noah.

Truncating the patriarchs truncates the story of God’s justice and mercy. Jesus came to save us from the consequences of sin. If we cannot trust the historical account of Adam’s sin, then we cannot explain the necessity of Jesus’ incarnation, death, and resurrection. If we cannot trust the historical account of the Flood, then our understanding of God’s wrath is diminished, which in turn diminishes our gratitude for Jesus’ death and resurrection. Only knowledge of God’s terrible wrath and judgment against sin can allow us to make sense of Paul’s urgency in Romans 3 to proclaim that God is both just and the justifier of those who are in Christ.

Therefore, we cannot pretend that man’s commitment either to God or against Him does not influence their thought in all areas of life. 11 When we see that most men consciously or unconsciously see reality through the lens of their worldview, it becomes clear that science (or any other branch of human knowledge) cannot be neutral with respect to God. Jesus taught his disciples that men face two stark choices: we either love God or we hate Him. While good science includes methods that promote objectivity in experimental analysis and a respect for such objectivity, this limited, controlled, restricted objectivity should not be confused with spiritual neutrality, especially in questions of theology or history⎯both well outside the domain of science.
