I read an article a couple days ago about a professor at Bethel College in Indiana who has decided to leave the school to ease tension at the college. The issue is that the college is sponsored by the Missionary Church and they take a hard line in the interpretation of the word of God specifically as it addresses the creation of Adam. They do not agree with the idea as some Creationists do that if you believe that God created the laws of nature then in effect God has created everything.
I don’t think that the Missionary Church is wrong because the whole idea of religion is to try to interpret the word of God and live ones life accordingly. This raises some interesting points for Creationists and one is do we need to use a more descriptive term or terms so one knows what we believe.
I have used the term creative evolutionists as a more descriptive term to imply that I believe that the laws of evolution and all the laws of nature were created by God. This is why I have said that one can embrace science and still believe in your religion. I may have to modify what I say because those who believe in the strict interpretation of the bible can not embrace evolution but that is their choice and right.
