A Debate Changed My Mind

A rare occurrence, today’s story is about Wayne, who was convinced to abandon his YEC beliefs after presented with the strong scientific evidence that says otherwise.

Who would have thought that thinking like a scientist is actually comparable to having the humility of the mind of Christ?

Wayne, welcome.

John 1:1-4 (NIV2011)
1 In the Beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
2 He was with God in the beginning.
3 Through Him all things were made; without Him nothing was made that has been made.
4 In Him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind.

I have argued that BioLogos should discuss evolution based on John 1:1 rather than on Gen 1, because Jesus Christ is the Center of our Faith. What do you think?

Enjoyed this piece! It’s a great feeling to let go of the feeling that you know everything, and be open to evidence!

There is no beginning of beginnings.

Hi, Kristina - and welcome to the forum!

I too, value that freedom from needing to be certain about so much. And holding a bit more loosely that which I think I know. The “what” of our knowledge is not so important as the “who”.
