“Woe to you, blind guides!” (Matthew 23:16)
A retired geology professor, who is a theistic evolutionist and believes in a local flood (not global as the Bible clearly teaches), has been sending emails to AiG’s geologist, Dr. Andrew Snelling. He has been trying to convince Dr. Snelling to believe the compromise positions the evolutionist holds! But Dr. Andrew Snelling has such a high view of Scripture and is committed to God’s Word (as well as a practicing geologist for decades) that there is no way this professor can sway Andrew to reinterpret the infallible Word of God.
In this latest email to Dr. Snelling, I read this paragraph and just shook my head. How blind to the truth he is—but I also believe it is a willing blindness!
Read this paragraph from the professor:
Catholic church each has a given set of beliefs which they say must be professed in order to be a member of that church. In that respect, your set of beliefs is different from mine, so we go to different churches. I have had numerous personal- or email-communications from former church members who have said that they have left the church and even become atheists because their church leaders required literal interpretations that the Earth was young (6,000 to 10,000 years old) and that Noah’s Flood was global in extent. Many youth have told me that they are not going to join a church because of these interpretations and because of what they have learned in science courses about evolution and what NASA is doing in planetary and space explorations that make more logical sense.Here are my observations:
This professor illustrates the sad compromise seen in our churches that is leading so many young people astray. So sad.
We need to pray such professors will repent of their compromise and return to the full authority of the Word of God.
Thanks for stopping by and thanks for praying,
