Biologos has as its mission to spread the message that the Bible cannot be relied upon as a trustworthy guide to human origins

Perhaps you are thinking, “Wait a minute, if there was no first Adam then Jesus isn’t the Second Adam. If there was no fall then that has massive implications for the gospel itself.” Exactly.

Biologos (founded by Francis Collins) denies outright the special creation of man, the historical fall, and biblical inerrancy. In fact, just a few years ago Kenton Sparks of Eastern University wrote a six part series of posts for the Biologos website attacking the inerrancy of Scripture.
