Attention parents of Northwestern College students, this professor attacks and distorts the Biblical account of Creation.
Donald Wacome is a professor of philosophy at Northwestern College. Wacome wrote:
“the Genesis creation stories are neither history nor science; they are theology expressed in poetic narrative.”
Wacome later added:
“But I take it for granted that the first, simple living things came into existence by means of natural processes, and no divine intervention was involved.”
Read over his entire essay and ask yourself, can you imagine sending your Christian college student to be taught by person with such a distorted view?
Instead of interpreting Genesis like our confessions and John Calvin do, that we are walking through the theater of God’s grand design, Wacome makes a mockery of the Scriptures and even Intelligent Design.
