PRETERIST BIBLE COMMENTARY › Forums › Reply To: If No Man can see God and Live, How Could Jesus be Seen during the Parousia?
<![CDATA[I wouldn't say that I was shkcoed, as you were, to learn of Morris' reliance on the findings of Price, an Adventist amateur geolgist, but I did find it ironic that scientific creationism is partly based on the seemingly a priori work of an Adventist, for King James Onlyism also owes a debt of gratitude to the work of an Adventist, Benjamin Wilkinson, whose book, Our Authorized Bible Vindicated, was featured in David Otis Fuller's Which Bible? Now this is just my own personal logic at work, but a few years ago, when I realized the shallowness of KJV Onlyism, and recalled that Morris, the father of modern scientific creationism, was a KJV Onlyist himself (he even promoted Riplinger's New Age Bible Versions ), I began to suspect young-earth 6/24 creationism must also leave something to be desired. Then, my church had Henry Morris' son come speak at a men's prayer breakfast, and he for the first time informed me that, indeed, most evangelical seminaries no longer favor young-earth 6/24 creationism. He mentioned John MacArthur's school as among the few which still defend the view.I personally remain agnostic about those aspects of creation, but I'm still emotionally tied to the Morris view, although I'm finding the framework view particularly persuasive on the days of creation.]]>
