From AIG this week -- a familiar refrain.
Since Templeton accepted evolution, and since Templeton "lost his faith,"
then it must surely follow that anyone accepting evolution is on slippery

Q: When someone rejects Genesis, will they then reject the whole Bible?
A: The following is a terrible warning for the church today as to what
happens when one compromises on the Word of God.
In the 1950s, a famous evangelist named Charles Templeton received wide
media attention across America. Great crowds flocked to hear him. Large
numbers of people came forward when he challenged them to trust Christ.
But in 1994 he published a book called Farewell to God in which he
totally rejected the Christian faith. He died a few years ago as a man
embittered against the Christian faith.
What happened to Templeton is a warning for us all today. He went to
Princeton University and was taught to believe in the evolutionary
teaching of “millions of years.” He recognized that if this were true,
then God used death, bloodshed, suffering and disease for millions of
years as part of His creative process—and then called this very good.
All through his book, Templeton wrote that there can’t be a God of love
because of all the death and suffering in the world. The teaching of
“millions of years” destroyed Templeton. Don’t compromise, as he did, and
destroy your faith.
