According to polls the Christian faith has lost ground in the Western World. 1, 2 Let us look at the BioLogos Foundation as one reason for the erosion of biblical faith. The purpose of BioLogos is, ‘to invite the church and the world to see the harmony between science and biblical faith as we present an evolutionary understanding of God’s creation. 3
# Genesis 1 is the proof that God is real.
Genesis 1 is the most fundamental and important doctrine in Scripture. God created in six days and therefore He is all-powerful and will establish His Kingdom on earth. Without Genesis 1 the whole Bible tumbles like a house of cards.
# Biblical faith stands on the foundation of Genesis 1.
Darrel Falk says, ‘It is a travesty that young people who begin the journey of following Jesus are told that they have to believe something which a little science education makes clear cannot possibly be the case.’ 4 The science he refers to is definitely not operational science. What happens is that people realize that if Genesis 1 is about an evolved creation, there is no reason to believe there is a God. They just discard their faith in God.
# To change Genesis 1 requires major changes in Scripture.
BioLogos has to adapt the Bible to fit evolution. The inevitable conclusion is, ‘At the end of the day, the theological modifications required by the acceptance of evolution are vast and utterly disastrous for biblical Christianity.’ 5 Scripture is composed of 66 interlocking ‘pieces.’ If you change one you have to change all the others. That erodes faith eventually.
# Evolution does not stand on a scientific foundation.
Science is an investigation into the workings of nature and is based on testable, observable, repeatable experiments. Logic tells us that evolution, an idea of where life came from, cannot be tested repeatedly, neither observed, nor measured. Creation is a past event, not open to scientific investigation. It is a lie that science proved evolution true.
# Science leads to technological advances.
Scientific innovations (TV, cellphones, electricity, et cetera) are based on laws of nature discovered by scientific investigations.
- To prove that the idea of evolution is useless for that, do a search on the most well known evolutionist, Richard Dawkins.
- Skip past all his accomplishments, the books he wrote to trash the Bible and promote evolution, and see if he has any scientific patents to his name? Has he formulated any significant laws of nature and patented innovations based on them? After all, he calls himself a scientist. We could not find any evidence of his prowess as a scientist.
- With all his active ‘research’ into evolution, he should have earned at least one or two Nobel prizes. None are mentioned. 6
BioLogos is part of the propaganda machine to destroy people’s faith in the Bible. ‘Normal’ thinking people realize that if evolution is true, God is not. This is a massive modern lie: ‘Science has proved evolution.’
