What’s Wrong with Theistic Evolution?

A snippet from Kevin DeYoung's article where he quotes Wayne Grudem's problems with Theistic Evolution:
(1) Adam and Eve were not the first human beings, but they were just two Neolithic farmers among about ten million other human beings on earth at that time, and God just chose to reveal himself to them in a personal way.

(2) Those other human beings had already been seeking to worship and serve God or gods in their own ways.

(3) Adam was not specially formed by God of ‘dust from the ground’ (Gen. 2:7) but had two human parents.

(4) Eve was not directly made by God of a ‘rib that the Lord God had taken from the man’ (Gen. 2:22), but she also had two human parents.

(5) Many human beings both then and now are not descended from Adam and Eve.

(6) Adam and Eve’s sin was not the first sin.

(7) Human physical death had occurred for thousands of years before Adam and Eve’s sin–it was part of the way living things had always existed.

(8) God did not impose any alteration in the natural world when he cursed the ground because of Adam’s sin. (Should Christians Embrace Evolution?, 9)

Tuesday #Tunesday :: Beautiful Eulogy - Take It Easy

People tend to follow a pattern of physical attraction.
Great first date, second date late night passion.
It never lasts long so you keep on passing to the next one.
You never really felt the connection only physical affection.
So you protect your heart and correct your self and self reflect.
So the next one you connect with better be better than the last one
because the last one was disaster waiting to happen
and the impact was greater than you could ever imagine.
So you planned to be more selective with your selections,
love less and be less affectionate but the fact is
the minute you think you mastered it you return right back
to the pattern of what you think love should look like.
Maybe your not finding it cause your not defining it right?
