Interesting blog post here this morning from Albert Mohler regarding the folks at BioLogos and their efforts to make evolutionary theory acceptable among conservative Christians. This paragraph is especially noteworthy:
Virtually every form of theological liberalism arises from an attempt to rescue Christian theology from what is perceived to be an intellectual embarrassment – whether the virgin conception of Christ, the historicity of the miracles recorded in the Bible, or, in our immediate context, the inerrancy of Scripture and the Bible’s account of creation.
What is this aversion to intellectual embarrassment if not pride? The desire for respectability is often another form of idolatry.
