In 1982, Josef Tson, a Romanian Baptist pastor imprisoned for his faith under the communist regime, said, “I came to the conclusion that there are two factors which destroyed Christianity in Western Europe. One was the theory of evolution, the other, liberal theology … Liberal theology is just evolution applied to the Bible and our faith.” The reason for this is not hard to discern: Evolution is an atheistic and humanistic worldview that presents us with a purely naturalistic and materialistic view of the world. When applied to the Christian faith and the Bible, whatever is regarded as contrary to its naturalistic worldview is rejected: the Triune God of the Bible, biblical creation, the inspiration of the scriptures, miracles, substitionary atonement, the resurrection of Jesus, and so on. The result is not Christianity, but Liberalism. To see how this can happen we are going to take, as a case study, the evolution question at Princeton College and Seminary during and just after the time of Charles Darwin (1845–1929). As we are going to see, there are many valuable lessons for us here.
