Thomas E. Peck on theistic evolution and the constitution of man

Reformed Covenanter

Cancelled Commissioner
Again, as to the special point of the origin of man’s body, if it be explained according to the hypothesis of evolution as held and expounded by naturalists … of implying that what we call the spirit or soul of man was evolved out of a germ existing in the brute, thus denying the uniform teaching of Scripture as to the constitution of man. Such a doctrine may by courtesy be called “theistic” evolution; but it certainly could not, with any show of reason, be called “biblical.”

For the reference, see Thomas E. Peck on theistic evolution and the constitution of man.
