Reading Keller’s writings (I’m just getting through his 2nd of a two part series) - -
- I am not at all impressed with his friendliness towards BioLogos - - unless there is some newer writings that show some kind of “evolution” (pun intended!).
He seems “locked into” the magical view that because of Adam’s sin, the whole Universe suffers.
Here are a few paragraphs:
“The result of the Fall, however, was ‘spiritual death’, something that no being in the world had known, because no one had ever been in the image of God. Human beings became, at the same time, capable of far greater and far worse things than any other creatures. We now die eternally when we die physically. And since we are now alienated from God, the world is under the power of the forces of darkness in a way that would not have occurred without the fall.”
“The physical world now ‘groans’ under disintegration because human beings have failed to be God’s stewards of creation. Greater ‘natural evil’ is combined with human, moral evil to create a dark, chaotic world indeed.”
The world will finally be renewed, and become all it was designed to be (Romans 8:19-23), only when we finally become all we should be through the work of the Second Adam (1 Cor 15:42-45.)"
