It’s so confusing, Mr Brooks. There are so many different possible combinations. I would think that a Calvinist TULIP EC with strong belief in original sin would find this a good option. An EC who does not, may not. A YEC may or may not–it depends on where they’re coming from.
If you’re pointing out a harmonization–well done, talk to the EC Tulipist and YEC; I don’t even try to argue with YEC, myself. The main reason I come here is to learn more about how Christianity and EC can coexist. So–while I don’t accept that God judged us from Adam’s sin (or transmitted a tendency to sin from him that I can’t escape, or passed any curse on to me from him), it’s fine with me that others do. My kids and I are born sinless, whatever you all are! (tongue in cheek!)
However, personally, I don’t think I want to change my understanding of the Bible in order to get YEC to agree; though just as with my fellowship with any Calvinist (or agnostic, Buddhist, Wesleyan, or whatever) I’m happy to discuss things.
What I don’t understand is why it’s important to change my hermeneutic, just to get YEC to accept evolution. Evolution is not my personal raison de penser (reason to think)–this is a world with 2 books from God. It’s just more confusing that we thought, --but also less important–isn’t it? But–I will direct people who have questions to Dr Swamidass’ posting and website about GA!
Thanks. Sorry if I’m clear as mud; and feel free to point out my inconsistencies.
