6. Getting off the YEC bandwagon
Just earlier today, someone told me that he believed that a literal interpretation of Genesis is a salvation issue after all. I have only known this person for a few months and when we first talked about this, he told me that he did not think it was a salvation issue. However, in talking with him further, it soon became apparent that he did. Statements such as, “If we don’t believe in a literal Genesis, then we might as well throw out the whole Bible” strongly suggest that the speaker does consider it a salvation issue. I can’t see how a person who subscribes to this view could say that it is not. I mean, come right out and say so! So, if anything, I’m glad this person has finally decided to admit that it is.
And that, my friends, is where I get off the bus.
A god that is limited to our puny minds’ literal reading of Genesis is not worthy of my time, let alone my worship.
