• Greeting Steve, I can see your point, and it is valid and worth to be discussed. I consider myself a conservative Christian and observing the same dilemma in the center of the so-called "Christian" schools/seminaries. Two things, I need to add to this thread. 1) You are referring to a school of thought determined by culture. A culture that is influenced by the Western mindsets (philosophers and liberal theologians) since the 17th century. Furthermore, the individuals who fall for the Theistic Evolution e.g., BioLogos folks, are raised in this very context. Of course, we should not expect any better than this. Today, one barely finds Christians in "Christian" schools in the West to trust the Bible. There is a sense of shame among the student and professors who play safe (it will get worse). I see both cases. Either one comes from a Calvinistic view or Arminian theology. 2) The missing part by both scientists and theologians is that they all see the elephant in the room, but they do not speak about it. At least as someone who comes from the scientific background, the definition of what is science and what is not science has gone with the wind. Evolution cannot be observed directly or experimentally. We were taught this rational concept for decades now. It is all about the force behind it. The whole game is dominated by politic. A political affair supports the evolution today and rejecting of the evolution leads seminarians or scholar to fail in his/her academic career. More scholars will write in support of BioLogos and Evolution.
    1. A good read and I recommend it to any students of Bible (seminarians and ministers) who want to learn the basic of theology. It shares different debatable topics but the important ones in the circle of Christian theology but do not expect to find a line or clear solution to your questions. Although, I do not support Open Theism (at all) but Boyd and Eddy are good writers.
