Tim Keller ( Senior pastor of Redeemer Presbyterian Church in Manhattan) again endorses evolution: "Belief in evolution can be compatible with a belief in a historical fall and a literal Adam and Eve."
You can read the entire sad article at: https://www.thegospelcoalition.org/article/sinned-in-a-literal-adam-raised-in-a-literal-christ/
To endorse evolution (and thus also millions of years), is to accept:
1. death of 'nephesh' creatures (animals, man--those with a life spirit) before sin.
2. Animals eating each other before sin (originally, they were vegetarian - Gen 1:30)
3. Diseases like brain tumors, cancer (as found in the fossil record supposedly millions of years in age) before man and before God said everything was 'very good.'
4. Thorns before sin--fossil thorns supposedly hundreds of millions of years old are found in the fossil record and the Bible makes it clear that thorns came after sin
5. Death, bloodshed, violence, carnivory, disease, thorns before sin--so what did sin do when Romans 8 makes it clear the whole creation groans because of sin
6. Man evolved from an 'ape-man'--but the Bible in the Old and New Testament teaches man was made from dust (and to dust he will return when he dies)
6. Woman evolved from an 'ape-woman'--But Paul in 1 Corinthians 11 makes it clear woman came FROM the man, just as is detailed in Genesis 2--and Jesus refers to in Matthew 19
There are many many other problems too as we have discusssed in numerous articles on the www.answersingenesis.org website. I also refer people to the book, 'Coming to Grips with Genesis,' available from AiG.
It is so hard to understand why so many men of God who preach so solidly on God's Word--as soon as it comes to Genesis in this era, they (like Tim Keller) are willing to give up their stand on the authority of Scripture and adopt a different hermeneutic for the sake of accommodating man's fallible ideas (man's religion) of millions of years and evolution.
Again, I emphasize--this is not a salvation issue but an authority issue. Though in a sense it is a 'salvation' issue for the coming generations, as it affects they way they view Scripture, and thus could be a great detriment to them acknowledging their need of salvation as many are put on a slippery slide of doubt leading to unbelief in regards to the Word of God
We need to pray for people like Tim Keller, that the Lord will open his eyes to this glaring inconsistency in his compromise on God's Word in Genesis.
