Andy is a Lutheran, meaning that he believes the Book of Concord (The Lutheran Confessions) accurately represent the teachings of Scripture. However, he has never read Martin Luther’s 95 Theses that he posted on the church door in Wittenberg on Oct. 31st, 1517.
In this episode, he reads them for the first time, start to finish on the 500th anniversary of the Reformation. Many of these have some historical particularity that fully escapes him. Much is still to be learned.
Sean Pino interviews Andy to see if he thinks Scripture and Darwinian Evolution are compatible. The literary nature of Genesis is discussed, the source and origin of physical death in creation, the interplay between scientific discovery and theory with Biblical interpretation, and why some Christians are adamant in their refusal to adapt Darwinian teaching into Christian Doctrine.
