There is indeed a slippery slop once one accepts evolutionary theory as the correct description of the history of life on Earth. Human curiosity and rationality are the major ingredients in the scientific endeavor, which would not satisfied with only the history of Earth but that of the whole universe. Therefore, humans would ascribe the present state of humanity to mere historical accidents. If all could be thought to be explainable by means of scientific inquiry, on what ground would one need the notion of the supernatural. In other words, what is left unanswerable by science so that we are forced to posit the existence of the supernatural?

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 grounds.



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.
