I fully empathize with what you’ve said. I wrestled with this issue a good bit before arriving a position of resolution and peace in my own mind. Like you I’m EC but still maintain a high view of scripture and its authority. I remember being shocked that scientific concordism fails as an approach to biblical interpretation. I felt like my whole world was caving in.
There are lots of resources on the BioLogos site to help work through these issues. Many of us are enthusiastic about finding harmony between science and scripture. I predict that in one more generation, EC will emerge as the dominant view of creation in Christianity.
