Christians believe that the world is a gift from God and that he placed humans in a position of stewardship and dominance over his creation. This suggests that humans have been given the power to rule over all other creatures. But this power also suggests that human beings must take care of the world. While the three viewpoints of creation discussed in this publication differ in their interpretation of the moment and mechanism of creation events, all agree that God is the creator and that man is the pinnacle of his creation.
The term progressive creation comes from Ramm's belief that “the fundamental pattern of creation was progressive. This is consistent with the scientific view of the fossil record pattern, but the view of progressive creation considers that the origin of life forms in the fossil record is due to millions of acts of special creation and not to the process of evolution by natural selection. On the contrary, science is not competent to draw conclusions about the supernatural and, therefore, has nothing to say about the role of God as creator or about the Christian view that man is the pinnacle of creation and, therefore, is neutral with respect to the question of God. In this post, I am going to discuss three Christian views on creation (young-earth creationism, old earth creationism, and theistic evolution) in order to identify points of agreement and points of tension between them and with the vision of science discussed in my previous publications.
Before I became a Christian, I made this assumption in my research and continued to make the assumption after becoming a Christian.
