Darrel Falk on How We Should Discuss the Question of Evolution

| By

In a recent interview for the Faraday Institute's "Test of Faith" documentary, Darrel Falk was asked how those who accept BioLogos should share their belief with others. His response (above) emphasizes the "mutual respect" we must have when discussing science and religion with those who share different views.

According to Falk, those who accept evolution need to do a better job communicating that a view of faith that emphasizes a personal God, miracles, salvation, and other important parts of Evangelical Christianity does not go by the wayside if God has created gradually through evolutionary processes. Most importantly, we must share our beliefs with understanding and Christian love.

Furthermore, we must be willing to listen to and learn from our Christian brothers and sisters who differ from our views on science and religion. As Falk puts it, "if there’s anything that’s at the heart of what it means to be a Christian, it means that we will be working together as a body, we will be loving each other as a body, we will be thinking alongside each other as a body.”
