Puritan Board Graduate
Hey I am just wondering what you all think of Dr. Walton's thesis that Gen. 1 doesn't refer to creation ex-nihilo or creation of matter, but causing to function as a cosmic temple.
Apparently he also holds to NCT in his book Covenant: God's plan and purpose, seeing both strengths and weaknesses from Dispensationalism (via moody no doubt, make sense now) and covenant theology.Seems like Walton has drunk deeply of the koolaid popular in broad evangelical circles. He used to teach at Moody where a six day creation was mandated by the statement of faith. Then he went to Wheaton, the citadel of broad evangelicalism, where such ideas are not only fashionable, but seem almost required. In fairness to Walton, he left Moody after something like 20 years because he did not want his research notions to hurt the school.
