The BioLogos Forum is designed to foster a serious and comprehensive discussion of Christian faith and the sciences. We believe that charitable engagement of different perspectives within the Church helps sharpen our thinking and deepen our commitment to the truth that is hidden in Christ. So while many of the articles and videos under the distinctive Forum banner come from BioLogos staff and Senior Fellows, we feature a range of voices, including those that disagree with us and with each other. Unless otherwise noted, views expressed are those of the authors, not necessarily of The BioLogos Foundation. You can read more about what we believe here, and join the conversation in the comments section at the end of each post.

Science Drove Me Away From Faith (And Helped Bring Me Back)

Science Drove Me Away From Faith (And Helped Bring Me Back)

As I investigate my newfound faith alongside my scientific knowledge, the Lord continues to reveal to me that scientific findings and the use of the scientific method are very good, just as his Word is also good.

Tim Keller on Original Sin, Atonement, and Evolution               (Part 2)

Tim Keller on Original Sin, Atonement, and Evolution           (Part 2)

Some may respond, “Even though we don’t think there was a literal Adam, we can accept the teaching of Genesis 2 and Romans 5, namely that all human beings have sinned and that through Christ we can be saved. So the basic Biblical teaching is intact, even if we do not accept the historicity of the story of Adam and Eve.” I think that assertion is too simplistic.

“Science Falsely So-Called”—The Infidelity of Natural History in the Early American Republic

“Science Falsely So-Called”—The Infidelity of Natural History in the Early American Republic

Natural history was a sensitive topic in the early nineteenth century. For many Americans, the nascent field of geology was an "enfant terrible," an obstreperous child shrilly shouting insults in the faces of Christians.

Substitutionary Atonement and Evolution, Part 2

Substitutionary Atonement and Evolution, Part 2

Emphasizing Jesus’ death is the wrong way to approach the atonement. Instead, we would be better served focusing on the incarnation.

Substitutionary Atonement and Evolution, Part 1

Substitutionary Atonement and Evolution, Part 1

Macroevolution calls the Fall and the doctrine of original sin into question. Thus, evolution poses a significant challenge to substitutionary atonement.

Hominin Evolutionary Patterns in the Early to Middle Pliocene: How Many Forms Are There?

Hominin Evolutionary Patterns in the Early to Middle Pliocene: How Many Forms Are There?

These finds open up a new horizon of research into the earliest hominins and how they lived. They also provide us with even more clues in our ongoing search for the last common ancestor.

Adam, Eve and human population genetics, Part 13: addressing critics - Poythress, population genomics, and locating the historical Adam (continued)

Current genetic research decisively shows that there were never less than 10,000 humans—and certainly never just two.

Why the Church Needs Multiple Theories of Original Sin (Part 2)

Why the Church Needs Multiple Theories of Original Sin (Part 2)

It is precisely this theological concern – for the goodness of God – that motivates some Christians to favor competing theories about how and when sin entered the world.

Is the Fall like the Atonement? Is There Room for Multiple Theories about the Origin of Sin?

Is the Fall like the Atonement? Is There Room for Multiple Theories about the Origin of Sin?

There may be room for multiple scenarios about how sin originates in time, but not for multiple theories about whether sin originates in time.

From the Archives: Why the Church Needs Multiple Theories of Original Sin

“It’s tempting to think that the church needs to decide quickly which of these [original sin] scenarios is right, and which ones must be wrong. I believe the church is better served by taking its time, holding several different scenarios in tension for a while as we think through the implications of each.”
