Few Christian colleges or seminaries teach young earth creationism (YEC), participants noted during discussion groups. But less formal, grassroots educational initiatives, often centered on homeschooling, have won over the majority of evangelicals. “We have arguments, but they have a narrative,” noted Tim Keller. Both young earth creationists and atheistic evolutionists tell a story tapping into an existing cultural narrative of decline. To develop a Biologos narrative is “the job of pastors,” Keller said.
Well, Keller has once against shown forth his position as a evolutionist. As I have mentioned before, embracing the Framework Hypothesis is not contrary to embrace of some form of Theistic Evolution. And don't anyone dare to play semantics here. As long as one thinks that the process and mechanism of evolution plays some role in the creation of species, that is evolution. To the degree that God is used as an ad-hoc "god of the gaps," to the degree that God is used as a crutch in the origins debate.
Evolution is a holistic system. There is no true fusion possible between evolution and Christianity. What "fusion" there is is a mongrel and mishmash of conflicting propositions, just as abominable as a hybrid between Protoss and Zerg.
If the PCA treats its ordination vows in the same way as the OPC does, Keller would be working in blatant violation of his ordination vows as a Presbyterian minister in which he swore to uphold the teaching of the Westminster Confession of Faith. Keller IMO should be charged, but I'm not holding my breath for that to happen.
