A link from the Phoenix Preacher’s “Linkathon” of 1/17/2017 entitled: How should we interpret the Genesis flood account? takes one to the website of the pseudo-Christian, Pseudo-scientific outfit called “BioLogos”. (Why PP would post this is another matter). BioLogos claims that:
“Until modern times, most Christians assumed the story referred to an actual worldwide event that happened in the relatively recent past, and this interpretation of the Flood continues to be a central feature of young-earth creationism… However, the discoveries of modern science… the work of many Christian scholars and scientists who were (and continue to be) guided by a belief that all truth is God’s truth, that Scripture is inspired, and that the testimony of nature should not be ignored. The scientific and historical evidence is now clear: there has never been a global flood that covered the entire earth, nor do all modern animals and humans descend from the passengers of a single [the Ark] vessel.”
Factually, there is no real “harmony” here between science & biblical faith. Rather there are lies built upon lies. BioLogos is a pseudo-scientific outfit that pretends to be Biblical, while deny the biblical account. They claim to “embrace the historical Christian faith, upholding the authority and inspiration of the Bible.” Yet, they also “affirm evolutionary creation, recognizing God as Creator of all life over billions of years.”. They state that, “The diversity and interrelation of all life on earth are best explained by the God-ordained process of evolution.” See http://biologos.org/about-us
“We believe the proper interpretation of the Flood story will not be in conflict with what we have discovered in the natural world… history provides many examples of our knowledge of the natural world helping to correct faulty interpretations of Scripture.
Endorsers include: [see http://biologos.org/about-us/endorsements/] : Tim Keller, N.T. Wright, Philip Yancy, Os Guinness, John Ortberg, Andy Crouch, John Stott., etc.
If the Genesis account of the flood is a myth, that would mean that Jesus was not telling the truth when he referenced Noah and the flood in Matt. 24:37-8 >> “But as the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. For as in the days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark…”
Thus we must conclude that the “teachers” who have endorsed BioLogos and their heresies, have effectively denied scripture, even the words of our Lord Jesus – and thus, such are unfit to be respected or followed as Bible teachers.
“If anyone teaches otherwise and does not consent to wholesome words, even the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to the doctrine which accords with godliness, he is proud, knowing nothing, but is obsessed with disputes and arguments over words, from which come envy, strife, reviling, evil suspicions, useless wranglings of men of corrupt minds and destitute of the truth, who suppose that godliness is a means of gain. From such withdraw yourself. – 1Tim.6:3-5
