‘Knowing that they are in a minority among Protestants did not limit the gathering’s enthusiasm. About 60 participants came by special invitation, with the proviso that their names would not be publicized without permission. This was intended to encourage open conversation on sensitive topics. Attending were such luminaries as N. T. Wright, Alister McGrath, John Ortberg, Tim Keller, Scot McKnight, Os Guinness, Joel Hunter, and Andy Crouch. Prominent scientists included Ian Hutchinson of MIT and Jennifer Wiseman, senior project scientist for the Hubble Space Telescope. Forty-one pastors and parachurch leaders participated.’
For many Romanians, to be an evangelical means to believe in a six 24 hour days creation and to believe that God could have brought the world into being through an evolutionary process is worse that being the devil himself.
A little bit of education about the fact that one could be an evangelical and and not be in denial about the facts of science may hurt a bot, but it good, hopefully, for intellectual maturity.
