From An Old Testament Theology (highly recommended!):
“Since the biblical narrative does not describe the process of creation from a scientific viewpoint, the origin of species by evolutionary processes cannot be ruled out automatically, but evolutionism’s worldview that only matter exists and that it is ruled by chance must be rejected as unreasonable and, more important, as antithetical to the biblical worldview. The replacement of biblical theism with materialistic evolutionism lays the foundation for trade in aborted body parts, genocide, and eugenic engineering. The resulting ethical consequences of the biblical versus modern worldviews cannot be overemphasized… .
Unfortunately, in the aftermath of Charles Darwin, the scientific debates between evolutionists and creationists have thoroughly obscured the real message of the creation narrative. Instead of metaphysical questions that shape culture, questions about dinosaurs, a young earth theory, and such dominate the evangelical landscape. This is unfortunate. The creation account presents God transforming chaos into cosmos by his word. The account assumes that God is an aseity (Latin a “from” and se “self”). Unlike his creation, which, though independent from him, depends on him for its original and sustained existence, God’s existence is from himself—HE IS. Therefore, no account of his origin is possible.
