I recommend watching these http://origins.faithaliveresources.org/#watch_online
It is funny, they speak of god of the gaps and the dangers of it, to which I agree completely (with the DVD from the link).
We need to be careful in making a god of the gaps, because when science does (and it probably will) it then nullifies ‘our god of the gaps’ we created. Thankfully our God is not a God of the gaps, like holes in a boat we feel we need to patch or our boat will sink. God IS the boat. The gaps we fill is using his Word, and his scientific world to fine tune our logic.
If you create a god that says fruit falls because of god. Then science says fruit falls because of gravity, you god was just defeated. My God is the creator of everything. Sometimes we can mistake how something is interpreted. But when science shows gravity, then we know (since God was the Creator of everything) God made gravity. This is why now when we see science show proof of 13.7 billion year old universe, then God used the big bang.
Now science no longer proves God wrong, it allows us to understand Him further increase in our understandings of His glory and power and majesty!
“However, in theistic evolution the only workspace allotted to God is that part of nature which evolution cannot ‘explain’ with the means presently at its disposal. In this way He is reduced to being a ‘god of the gaps’ for those phenomena about which there are doubts. This leads to the view that ‘God is therefore not absolute, but He Himself has evolved—He is evolution’.2”
This is not at all what I, nor I think many EC’s believe. We are not pinning god to evolution, we are using the brains and technologies God gave us to see the world as it is. Using that knowledge, we then gain understanding of who God is.
Again, I greatly recommend those 6 short (5m or so) videos, and recommend for the writer of that article to watch. Great fundamental EC videos!
It’s actually extremely iron they used that. As that is the very thing they are doing. God must ave created the earth in 6 days, and if you prove that the earth is older than 6 days, this would invalidate my God, so I refute all of your evidence, and come up with my own.
