Writing for The Christian Post, R. Albert Mohler, Jr., president of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky, argued that theistic evolution is a direct attack on biblical authority.
He coined as dangerous the remarks of Professor Karl Giberson of Eastern Nazarene College, who wrote that “I am happy to concede that science does indeed trump religious truth about the natural world. Galileo and Darwin showed this only too clearly, even if it is completely lost on Ken Ham and Al Mohler.” According to Mohler,
Giberson throws the Bible under the scientific bus. We should be thankful that his argument is so clear, for it puts the case for theistic evolution in its proper light – as a direct attack upon biblical authority.
In Giberson’s view, anyone who holds to the truthfulness and historical character of these biblical texts is simply intellectually backwards and unsophisticated. I can only wonder if the parents who send their offspring to Eastern Nazarene College have any understanding of what is taught there – and with such boldness and audacity.
