Hugh Ross

The teachings of Dr Ross seemingly allowed Christians to use the term “creationist,” but still give them supposed academic respectability in the eyes of the world.

God created millions of creatures (species) in “batches” over billions of years


Reasons to Believe – Hugh Ross (Progressive Creation)

As is the case with many in acadamia, Dr. Ross claims believe in the entirety of the Bible and belief in evolution at the same time. In other words, he is an old earth creationist, which is an oxymoron because the Bible clearly teaches a young earth. However, “old earth creation” curry’s favor in the academic world and allows you operate there with some modicum of respect among atheists. In addition, Dr. Ross is passionate in his Big Bang research and says the theory “continues to pass test after test.”

 Thanks to the research at AiG, Ross’s position is shown to be the same compromises of Scripture similar to Theistic Evolution, and ultimately undermines the authority of the Word of God and the Gospel of Jesus Christ. In addition, the operational scientific evidence supports a young earth creation model perfectly. There is a lot of information on Reasons to Believe and some of it does speak against sin of the world. In conclusion, we don’t see the organization as heretical, but you could make the case from a theological perspective if you follow evolutionary ideas to their logical conclusion.  Certainly Reasons to Believe is  nowhere near the class of heretics at BioLogos.
