2010: On Theistic Evolution and Professor Waltke’s Resignation (updated) – Justin Taylor

Dr. Bruce Walke seems to place general revelation or natural revelation on the same level or even higher than special revelation:

On March 24 Biologos posted one of the videos, where Dr. Waltke said, “If the data is overwhelmingly in favor of evolution, to deny that reality will make us a cult . . . some odd group that is not really interacting with the world. And rightly so, because we are not using our gifts and trusting God’s Providence that brought us to this point of our awareness. . . . To deny the reality would be to deny the truth of God in the world and would be to deny truth. So I think it would be our spiritual death if we stopped loving God with all of our minds and thinking about it, I think it’s our spiritual death."  On Theistic Evolution and Professor Waltke’s Resignation (updated) – Justin Taylor
This is why Dr. Gordon H. Clark was the only true presuppositionalist.  The majority of neo-Calvinists and neo-Evangelicals think they have to compromise the Word of God in some way in order to accommodate to the philosophies of this world.  If Scripture is not the final authority or the very words of God, then, of course, doubt sets in and theologians think they must somehow agree with the so-called "science" of evolution.
