To me, then, Scripture is given not only to make us wise unto salvation but also to furnish us thoroughly unto all good works (II Tim. 3:15-17) — even unto the good works of Christian education, Christian medical practice, Christian business activity, Christian farming, Christian housework, and Christian everything-else (Gen. 1:26-28 & Ps. 8). This does not mean that the Bible is a handbook for all of the special sciences. Yet it does mean that the Bible is indeed the Sourcebook for everything. Indeed, no special sciences are to be studied contrarywise to the clear teaching of Scripture.
For although, as the Confession declares (I:6), “there are some circumstances …common to human actions and societies, which are to be ordered by the light of nature and Christian prudence” — this is always to be done “according to the general rules of the Word, which are always to be observed.” Evolutionism, which I previously championed, is therefore not just unacceptable even “for the birds.” It is also not even for the “creeping things.” For God made all of His creatures “after their kind.” Gen. 1:11f,21f.
