The Collect

ALMIGHTY God, who seest that we have no power of ourselves to help ourselves; Keep us both outwardly in our bodies, and inwardly in our souls; that we may be defended from all adversities which may happen to the body, and from all evil thoughts which may assault and hurt the soul; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

The Contours of a Reprobate Mind « God's Hammer

During my time at the Wesleyan Arminian seminary known as Asbury, I was for a time led into the idea that theistic evolution was the only valid way of dealing with the apparent conflict between faith and science. However, what I was not taking into account is that the theistic evolution theory is based on what can only be called a neo-orthodox framework from a theological perspective and on a logical positivist/empirical philosophy view of science from the other end. What is more to the point, however, is that exalting general revelation (neo-Kuyperians prefer to call this "common grace") above special revelation opens the door to skepticism, agnosticism and even atheism. Gordon H. Clark's critique of the philosophy of science is to be considered here. It might be noted that Thomas Kuhn and Bertrand Russell raised some of the same objections that Clark did.

The bottom line is that either Scripture is propositionally and logically consistent, inerrant, and truthful in historical matters which it records or the flood gates to skepticism are thrown wide open. This might explain why Evangelicalism as a whole is in the straits of heterodoxy.
