Biologos: Dancing In Deception

The latest issue off ICR's "Acts And Facts", offers an important article by Henry Morris III, titled, "The Deceptive Dance of Compromise".

Morris brings to our attention the deception of the group, Biologos**, which is trying to merge all sorts of people who deny the biblical account of Creation according to Genesis 1-2. This group is comprised of "intellectuals", "theologians", "Christians", "atheists", and "scientists". They are having a symposium called "The Vibrant Dance Of Faith And Science".

One of the most noteable names to be attached to Biologos in recent years is Reformergent Tim Keller, with glowing endorsements by Os Guiness, Chuck Colson, and Philip Yancey. I reported a year ago about his close connection with this anti-biblical group who deny God's Word.

What is amazing is the growing number of "Evangelical" "Christians" (although "evangelical means nothing now, considering that such a label is worn by Anglicans like Guiness, pro-Romanists like Colson, and pro-homosexuals like Yancey). Of late, many will remember the battle for Creation was added to by John Piper who denies the Genesis account of Creation and instead places faith in the doctrine of demons called "Old Age" theory.

This latest article lists the speakers and co-sponsors at this event. You might be surprised by who's involved. Andy Crouch, Hugh Ross, Alister McGrath, World Magazine, among them.

ICR continues its strong stand on Scripture and I continue to thank the Lord for their ministry of not compromising. May the Lord bless them and keep them loyal to HIM alone, whatever the cost.

More can be read in the recent issue here.

Listen, no Christian denies the clear proclamation of a literal six-day Creation as God says in His Word. To deny this is to deny the authority of God and to have unbelief in Scripture. That, my friends, is what the enemy of the cross does.

Consider the connection between God as Creator, Sustainer, and Sovereign King in this passage; and to deny one part is to deny the whole:

Psa 33:4 For the word of the LORD is upright, And all His work is done in faithfulness.
Psa 33:5 He loves righteousness and justice; The earth is full of the lovingkindness of the LORD.
Psa 33:6 By the word of the LORD the heavens were made, And by the breath of His mouth all their host.
Psa 33:7 He gathers the waters of the sea together as a heap; He lays up the deeps in storehouses.
Psa 33:8 Let all the earth fear the LORD; Let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of Him.
Psa 33:9 For He spoke, and it was done; He commanded, and it stood fast.
Psa 33:10 The LORD nullifies the counsel of the nations; He frustrates the plans of the peoples.
Psa 33:11 The counsel of the LORD stands forever, The plans of His heart from generation to generation.
Psa 33:12 Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD, The people whom He has chosen for His own inheritance.
Psa 33:13 The LORD looks from heaven; He sees all the sons of men;
Psa 33:14 From His dwelling place He looks out On all the inhabitants of the earth,
Psa 33:15 He who fashions the hearts of them all, He who understands all their works.

*** BioLogos Team Members include Pete Enns, who was forced to leave Westminster Theological Seminary because he does not believe in the full inspiritation of all of Scripture. Greg Beale reviews his book here which reveals the major heresy Enns holds. Its no wonder Enns is onboard with Biologos: he denies the infallibility of Scripture.

One of the things that often grieves me in many of the watchblog type blogs (I don't mean this as a negative term) such as yours is the way things are frequently painted so black and white, particularly in areas that I believe are open for discussion among sincere, devout, Spirit-led Christians. You just seem to see so few gray areas.

This kind of outlook is often then followed by the statements against certain viewpoints and people that often doesn't portray their viewpoints in an even-handed way. I don't always see your grief for these people being, as you believe, led astray, but mostly just a critical pronouncement.

I am sure you have many good things to say in pointing out problems within and without the church that Christians have to be on guard against. I must admit though, that because of the tone and approach you take I unfortunately seldom take you seriously.

May God guide you and us into a Spirit-led, true knowledge of his word and ways.

Interesting how your tone is ok though, while slamming me, yet I am supposed to take you "seriously"? Your own "critical pronouncement" of me is apparent though. Come on David. Your hypocrisy is transparent.

It seems you are tolerant of demons of doctrines like evolution while being intolerant of a merely perceived "tone" that proclaims the Truth.

There is no gray area when it comes to Creation versus evolution. Evolution is unbelief in God's Word period. God says clearly and repeatedly He created by His Word this univers and it was in six literal days.Too bad you rather defend error and slam a Christian who stands boldly for the truth.

God has already spoken, so if you truly want to be "Spirit-led" and have "true knowledge of his word and ways" then you better go back to Scripture alone and exalt it above all things including "science". As it is, you've discarded what God has said in Genesis 1-2, which means you also will or do, discarded what it says about other doctrine as well.
