Attempts to figure out how much one can take away from fundamental doctrines so that a person can still be within the bounds of orthodoxy is seldom edifying and can at times be dangerous. Rather than spending my time figuring out and debating with others as to whether theistic evolutionists can still be considered true teachers and believers, I would much rather point away from the error and beseech those around me to believe in the Word of God as it is. The Bible says God created in 7 days, Adam and Eve were the first humans created by God, they fell and brought mankind along into death. The Bible says so, that settles it, I believe in it, and so should every child of God who claims to believe in the Holy Scriptures. Rather than deciding if these theologians are of the faith or not, why not pray for their eyes to be opened to embrace the plain truths of Scriptures regarding the doctrine of creation? As for whether they ought to be recommended reading, babes in Christ certainly ought to be properly guided if they do read books by these authors, lest they be greatly stumbled.
