Thursday Thoughts - November 19

I’ve heard it said, “Let’s not reflect on evolution.” Why? “This will create far too many questions about traditional interpretations of God and the biblical text. Just ignore it and leave it at that.” I’d wager that this mentality, frequently found in conservative Christian circles, is deplorable. In the light of our evolutionary history, the belief in the God of a literal Adam, Eve, and fall is increasingly problematic for numerous believers and having to hold to such perspectives as orthodoxy is presently leading many in the direction of deconversion. In spite of this, belief in another God and reconversion remains a viable and open possibility.
