Really ,Wow didn't know that , thank you. He shoulda listened to Puddle glum too. Joking.minasoliman said:You do realize CS Lewis was an evolutionist?wasamwillbe said:Woah. Death is natural? I would also like more explanation of this from an Orthodox Patristic view. Death was a result of sin , Sin has made us sick ( not a natural way of being )
This whole evolution / creation thing is quite odd to me. I stand with Puddleglum " I stand for Aslan" (CS Lewis, The Silver Chair). You can believe in your description you have developed, I will accept the one given me by God because it is sufficient for my understanding. It is good deal better than anything else I have heard. I would prefer being thought foolish for this than being thought intelligent for accepting another source.
Are there truths outside of what is revealed in scripture? Yes, I'm sure there are. The source of that truth likely to be the sinful race of man who willfully corrupts creation and labours to deny God?
I know the temptation to explain everything( I was Calvinist ) but buying into Darwin over scripture ? I would rather just be called ignorant and a creationist, understanding there is mystery beyond what is revealed.
