Scripture & the Age of the Earth

In this panel discussion from Ligonier’s 2012 National Conference, R.C. Sproul and friends discuss the Christian’s approach to Scripture and the natural world, offering wise words regarding the importance of embracing both as infallible revelation from God.  In my opinion, R.C. Sproul (in the clip below) and Michael Horton (in the full recording, timestamp 69:30) offer the most helpful insights into how Christians should think about and discuss these controversial issues.  Sproul’s main point is that we must embrace all of God’s revelation, not setting one part against another.  Horton clearly agrees, noting: “All truth is God’s truth, but not all truth is in the Bible.”

In my opinion, this fascinating discussion should serve as (yet another) call for a little more light and a little less heat in discussions related to faith and science.
