CMS Summer School, 2012, and its Snare.

It was disappointing to hear of the Episcopalian Archbishop of Sydney, Peter Jensen, speaking at the Church Missionary Society Summer School, Katoomba in January 2012 and leaving the audience with an erroneous theology of Jesus Christ as Creator. Long known for his Theistic Evolution standpoint on Origins, Archbishop Jensen could only justify his position by lamely declaring he is "not a scientist." In saying this after having resorted to the Theistic Evolution position he is effectively saying he accepts the word of man over the Word of God. The qualification the world bestows upon man is sufficient to guide the Archbishop.

From this position it is the Word of God which has to be stripped of its authority by immediate reinterpretation when it comes into conflict with the views of men on events of the past.

For the Archbishop, it is men who were not there being allowed to dictate to Jesus Christ (The Word) who was there, as to just what occurred at the beginning of life.

I just hope there were sufficient people present in the large audience who detected and dismissed this act of obeisance to man over Jesus Christ on the part of the Archbishop.

These are indeed times of trial for the Church and it is the faithful, in love, who will be the "trees who bear fruit to eternal life".

I just wish Jensen and his crowd would spell out for us Christians just exactly what in EVILolution demonstrates the love and majesty of the Creator. Furthermore, some info about how he did it and how God actually connects with the process.

Surely someone much closer to God than you or I must have some sort of insider trader deal going on and tell us plebs a little more?

Perhaps some instruction from the Apostle Paul might avoid the errors we point out here
"... you must no longer live as the Gentiles do, in the futility of their thinking. They are darkened in their understanding and separated from the life of God because of the ignorance that is in them due to the hardening of their hearts." (Eph. 4:17-18)

Peter makes the great, 'I've surrended' mistake. Origins is a theological question, not a scientific one. He may as well have said, I'm not a bicycle repair man, so can't say anything about creation!
