One Comment on “Reconciling the book of nature with Scripture”

Kudos to Denis Lamoureux for his clarifying honesty!
As the article notes, “Denis O. Lamoureux (University of Alberta) who holds three doctorate credentials in dentistry, evolutionary biology and theology. He makes what must certainly be a startling claim for many Christians that ‘Adam never existed, and this fact has no impact whatsoever on the foundational beliefs of Christianity.’”
Denis Lamoureux has made it abundantly clear that evolutionary thinking is incompatible with God’s creation of Adam, as recorded in Scripture. Either God’s Word is true, or Darwinian evolution is — both cannot be true. You cannot logically believe both evolution and the Bible. Thank you, Mr. Lamoureux!
But more seriously . . . as Ken Esau notes, “Almost everyone agrees that Jesus and Paul believed in the historical Adam.” For Christ-followers, therefore, the choice is clear. We must stay with the views of the Master Teacher, and discount the claims of those who speak otherwise, no matter how many earthly “doctorates” they appear to have accumulated.
