Southern Baptist Voices: And in Conclusion . . .
My goal in leading this organization for these past three and a half years has been to lay the groundwork to help my fellow evangelicals see that the conflict between our faith and mainstream science is not as great as they thought it was. In the process, my thinking has been significantly shaped by listening to people who think differently than I do
Southern Baptist Series: Evolution and the Problem of Evil
Were one to propose creation by means of theistic evolution, some of the presuppositions for these responses to the problem of evil no longer function. Therefore, advocating some form of theistic evolution poses problems for standard explanations of the problem of evil.
Introducing the BioLogos Navigator
Part of BioLogos mission is to show how all things hold together in Christ—to show how a Christian worldview integrates the knowledge we have of God through the Scriptures with the knowledge we have of God through the other areas in which He reveals himself as Creator and Redeemer.
Creator of the Stars at Night
The God who created the cosmos is the God who came to us as a child in Bethlehem.
Looking at the Collapsing Universe in the Bible
The language of a collapsing universe is related to the end of the old covenant and the coming of the new covenant as God’s “new world order.”
Why Strict Atheism Is Unscientific
Do you believe in God? If a cadre of outspoken, strong atheists wrote a litmus test for scientists, that might very well be question #1.
Science and the Bible: Intelligent Design, Part 5
As we’ve already seen, ID is a “philosophical critique of the explanatory efficacy of Darwinian evolution”, not an alternative “theory of everything.” In my opinion, the inability of ID to offer an alternative history of nature counts crucially against its acceptance by the scientific community.
Off with Their Heads
The Queen had only one way of settling all difficulties, great or small. “Off with his head!” she said, without even looking round
Surprised by Jack, Part 4: Mere Evolution
In short, Lewis made it quite clear in his writings that he believed that there is no real conflict between mere evolution and mere Christianity.
Surprised by Jack, Part 3: Mere Depravity
“Man is now a horror to God and to himself and a creature ill-adapted to the universe not because God made him so but because he has made himself so by the abuse of his free will. To my mind this is the sole function of the doctrine [of the Fall].”—C.S. Lewis
Surprised by Jack, Part 2: Reflecting on the Scriptures
For Lewis, “myth” hardly means false. Lewis had no trouble calling Genesis mythological, not because he had a low view of Genesis, but because he had a high view of mythology.
Surprised by Jack: C.S. Lewis on Mere Christianity, the Bible, and Evolutionary Science, Part 1
I would like to look at three areas relevant to faith and science discussions where Lewis’s stated views might be surprising for his American Evangelical admirers
The Church Fathers and the Two Books: Origen of Alexandria, Part 2
In opposition to pagan philosophies of the time, Origen affirmed the doctrine of creation ex nihilo, the goodness of creation, and the important role of the Divine Logos.
The Church Fathers and the Two Books: Origen of Alexandria, Part 1
Origen of Alexandria is one of most fascinating and important figures of the ancient world, not to mention the history of the Christian Church, and easily one of the most brilliant
Science and the Bible: Intelligent Design, Part 4
Our discussion of Intelligent Design resumes with some conclusions we might draw about it.
Surveying George Murphy’s Theology of the Cross
If God himself is willing to die, particularly in such a gruesome way, then perhaps we should at least consider the possibility of God allowing the death of other creatures, too. But would this really be compatible with what we know of God through Scripture?
Scientists Tell Their Stories: George Murphy
During his seminary education, Dr. Murphy also gained a deeper understanding of Luther’s theology of the cross, and he realized that it’s really the best way to approach the science and theology dialogue.
