One response to “The Historicity of Adam (a CIU lecture) Part 3 of 3

    The issues of the historicity of Adam and “The Fall” are a big deal. They are part of the theistic evolution package that includes such matters as being made in the image of God, the inception of death and predation, the flood, etc. I expect conflict over them to result in a major cleavage in the evangelical church, if in fact that has not already happened. I became a member of the American Scientific Affiliation (ASA) 30 years ago, not because I subscribe to their prevailing stance on creation (theistic evolution), but to find out how they, as professed believers in the inerrancy of scripture, reconcile their position on creation with a plain reading of Scripture. Not all do or even attempt to, and in any case, their interpretation of Scripture is subordinated to what they consider to be the “firm conclusions of science”. Their attempts at correlation are woefully inadequate in my opinion. ASA joyfully proclaims that they have reconciled Scripture with science, but what is plain to me is that they have undermined belief in Scripture. They will never bring the evangelical church together on these issues until they realize how important the matter of inerrancy is to some of us.
