The Words of Our Elders: James Innell Packer

“I believe in the inerrancy of Scripture… but exegetically I cannot see that anything Scripture says, in the first chapters of Genesis or elsewhere, bears on the biological theory of evolution one way or another…

Scripture was given to reveal God, not to address scientific issues in scientific terms, and … as it does not use the language of modern science, so it does not require scientific knowledge about the internal processes of God’s creation for the understanding of its essential message about God and ourselves”

~ James Innell Packer

The words of our elders, are words of wisdom.
