New Age ideals are considered to be something to be from around 60's through 80's.
In context of the overall age of Christianity, ID is new.
How new is ID and Why does it exist?
The mid 1800s saw the birth of modern humanistic evolution. In half a century, this movement exploded on the scene and anyone who wanted to be taken
seriously had to profess belief in that as opposed to the creation story of the bible.
Now you know that there are many out there who for whatever reason want to be seen in both camps. They want to be a 'good church goin christian' and
a 'modern scientificly adept, normal member of society'.
Now we have a impass. You cannot be both without being a liar in one of those circles.
Solution! At the turn of the century people like scofield started pushing the notion that God created that first single cell whatever, and then used
evolution to do the rest. In other words, dont try to explain away evolution, simply claim it in the name of God regardless of what the bible says.
1.) Gods word is now comprimised.
2.) Genesis is a lie
3.) Death did not enter the 'world' through Adam
4.) Death is not a result of sin
5.) Jesus had no reason to die on the cross for you per above
6.) Jesus did not rise from the dead because he never died for your sins
7.) Tell me again why we even need the bible if Genesis is a lie?
Really, the people who thought up ID never thought it through. There is more then that , that goes wrong in the bible if you take out creation, but
that should be enough for anyone who considers themselves to be a believer in the Word of God.
Read John. See what he says about Jesus and creation.
